Some things don’t change. The dream of a perfect sports car drove Ferry Porsche to create the very first Porsche sports car on 8 June 1948, and that dream is still alive today, 70 years on. Porsche will celebrate this landmark date in a series of events throughout the year, that include the UK-wide Sportscar Together Day events, a special celebration at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Festival of Porsche at Brands Hatch.
On 8 June this year Porsche will look back to the launch of its first sports car – the legendary 356 No. 1. Porsche sports cars have always been more than just cars. They have been fuelled by moments so valuable and exciting you had to share them with others.
Please contact our Centre for more information on any of our upcoming events celebrating the landmark of 70 years of Porsche.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel 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. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
