On Thursday 27 September, Porsche Centre Hatfield hosted a live stream discussion on Porsche Classic.
As one of only four official Porsche Classic Partners in the UK, we were delighted to share our expertise with classic owners and Porsche enthusiasts alike.
The team discussed what to look for when buying a classic Porsche, tips for classic owners and advice on keeping your classic in tip-top condition. Our Training and Development Manager, Callum Smith, and Product Expert, Stephanie Bennett, acted as hosts. Centre Principal, Mark Goody, General Sales Manager, Steve Dickson, and our Classic Technician, Simon Coath also joined the panel.
You can watch the discussion in the video above. To join our next Facebook Live event, simply follow our Facebook page for updates.
* 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.
