"In the beginning, I looked around and could not find quite the car I dreamed of, so I decided to build it myself.” – Ferry Porsche.
In 1948, Ferry Porsche realised his dream of a sports car: with his team, he produced the Porsche 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster. It marked the birth of a legendary brand and laid the foundation for an exemplary success story and the entire Porsche legend.
Now, 75 years on, Porsche will be celebrating in style across the world under the banner of ‘Driven by Dreams’, a term that aptly defines the very essence of Ferry Porsche’s vision and as well as perfectly reflecting the approach with which the people behind Porsche work every day to fulfil the dreams of its customers.
“We are proud of our heritage. It is the foundation for a successful future. We associate our heritage with innovation and progress – and continually add extraordinary new moments to the unique Porsche story,” explains Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG.
As part of the global Porsche anniversary celebrations, At Porsche Centre Bolton, we will be joining forces with Stockport and Wilmslow, to host a very special event at Manchester’s Media City on Saturday 10 June from 10:00.
The colourful festivities will feature a seventy-five-car display of Porsche models from a mix of eras. It will be a spectacular sight in an inspiring venue and will also include a DJ as well as live art activations that every visitor can take part in and enjoy.
Everyone is welcome to the 75 Years of Porsche celebration at Manchester’s Media City, but please contact us to let us know if you will be attending or are interested in displaying a special Porsche model at the event.
*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
