The dream of a perfect sports car drove Ferry Porsche to create the very first Porsche on 8 June 1948, and that dream is alive and well today 70 years on.
In June this year, to celebrate the 70th birthday of Porsche, our Porsche Centre will be holding a Sportscar Together Day. You, your family and your friends are invited to join us at the Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire on Saturday 09 June from 11am to help celebrate this historic occasion.
The event will be a celebration of all things Porsche, bringing together Porsche drivers and fans, along with a display of over 350 Porsche models, both classic and new. Plus, a summer German Market will be offering artisan food and drink to purchase alongside a family entertainment area.
In the afternoon, there will be a Porsche 70 Concours d'Elegance, featuring a curated collection of rare and high value Porsche models. The concours entrants will parade around the race circuit within the castle grounds and will be judged by a panel of Porsche experts and special guests.
* 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.
