On Saturday 3 November, Porsche Centre Glasgow was delighted to welcome members from the Region 1 Porsche Owners Club along to the Centre for a morning of winter check-ups.
We had approximately 30 guests in attendance along with 15 Porsche models. Each Porsche was put up on our ramp and inspected by one of our Porsche-trained Technicians. Members had the opportunity to accompany the Technicians and ask any questions they had.
While their cars were being inspected, members were able to enjoy delicious soup and sandwich catering from The Urban Kitchen in Glasgow, a perfect way to warm everyone up on a cold and wet November day!
Once all of the winter checks were carried out, the Porsche Owners Club then used our new PDI centre to hold an official club meeting.
* 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.
