Saturday 22 August saw Porsche Centre Cambridge welcome customers to an open morning at the Centre. The day was designed to give guests an insight into the exceptional facilities Porsche Centre Cambridge enjoys. Following a welcome speech by our Aftersales Manager, Franc Mateo, guests moved between four activities during the morning:
Your Car gave owners an opportunity to view their own car on a ramp, alongside one of our experienced Porsche-trained Technicians. Guests were challenged to look around and underneath their vehicles identifying any issues. The Technicians then scored and provided feedback on how efficiently they were able to complete the task.
Faults and PIWIS Diagnostics; Craig Beavis, one of our Gold Standard Technicians, had set up a Boxster on the ramp with 10 faults for members to identify.
Restoration Corner; at Porsche Centre Cambridge we are particularly proud of our skills in the care and restoration of classic Porsche models. Dan Fisher, our restoration expert, was on hand to detail the progress of our Restoration Competition entry for 2015 and answer questions about the process.
Drive; Neil Mills, Porsche Driving Consultant, was on hand to accompany drivers around the local countryside, and put the cars (and drivers!) through their paces. Two 911s (Type 991) were kept busy all morning, allowing guests to experience the latest technology that the 911 offers.
Following these activities, General Sales Manager Andy Matthews provided a very well-received tour of the Centre.
Our thanks go out to all Porsche Club GB members who attended, we thoroughly enjoyed welcoming you and very much look forward to seeing you again.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. 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. 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.
