At Porsche Centre Wolverhampton we pride ourselves on making handovers special for our customers.
When customers purchase a new car, they receive a ‘welcome pack’ which includes a section called ‘finishing touches’. This is where we encourage our customers to tell us if they wish to have flowers, wine or ribbons placed in or around their new vehicle at the point of reveal. A recent example of this was for a customers birthday celebration.
During October, our customers Mr and Mrs Jones attended the Centre to configure and order a new 718 Boxster for Mrs Jones. At first the delivery date couldn’t be confirmed, and Tom Hall, Sales Executive, advised he would be in touch as soon as he had a firm delivery date.
Following the visit, Porsche Cars Great Britain confirmed that in fact the 718 Boxster would be ready for delivery within the month. On hearing the news, Mr Jones liaised privately with Tom to ensure that Mrs Jones was unaware about the delivery, he wanted it to be a surprise for her upcoming 80th.
On the day, Tom arrived at the Jones' home armed with a bouquet of flowers and bottle of champagne and of course, the keys to the new 718 Boxster. Mrs Jones was delighted with the surprise.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
