Porsche Centre Belfast held a 718 Drive Event on Friday 14 June. Customers were provided with the opportunity to explore the 718 model range with a road drive experience and dynamics handling circuit. Customers were accompanied by a Porsche Driving Consultant from the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone. The road drive took in a variety of roads and included a taste of the Craigantet Hill Climb Course.
Following that, we set up a dynamics circuit in the Belfast Harbour Estate area, where customers got to experience the true handling features of the 718 models. After a demonstration from a Porsche Driving Consultant, customers tried out the launch control with the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox and discovered the benefits of the latest braking systems in Porsche cars, along with the Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
* 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.
