Performance is one of the protocols that Porsche will never compromise on, especially as we move into the future with vehicle electrification and autonomous driving.
One such area that is critical for top performance, is tyres.
Porsche invest heavily with chosen tyre partners to ensure that the very strict requirements for our bespoke model range are met with matching tyre technology.
Each tyre size and brand is tested for the very specific sporting requirements of each model in the range, remembering that Porsche is a sportscar brand first and foremost.
At the point of manufacturing, each tyre will be denoted with a type number, prefixed with the letter N. This means the tyre has been manufactured and approved purely for that model of Porsche.
This is why it is critical that when tyres require renewal, no compromises should be made with tyre choices, as the driving characteristics of your car will be missing a vital link without the tyres designed for it. Not only that, ensuring that your suspension and steering are kept in perfect alignment, will assist with reduced tyre wear and vehicle handling.
At Porsche Centre Belfast we have the most recent Hunter Hawkeye 4-wheel geometry equipment available to help facilitate this.
* 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.
