Porsche Cars GB managing director Marcus Eckermann joined more than 500 guests to celebrate the official opening of the new Porsche Centre Preston on Thursday 13 June.
Bowker Motor Group chief executive, Paul Bowker, said: “Ever since we announced our plans to build a Porsche Centre here in Preston, we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received. Thursday night was the perfect way to celebrate alongside customers and colleagues who have backed us in their numbers to bring this prestigious automotive brand to Lancashire.”
“We were also especially grateful to the team at Porsche Cars Great Britain for their partnership and Marcus Eckerman for joining us for our celebration. We look forward to establishing Porsche Centre Preston as one of the best in the UK and Ireland.”
The brand new, state-of-the-art Porsche Centre Preston opened last month to serve customers in the North West. The development, which brings the total Porsche Centre network in the UK and Ireland to 42, demonstrates a major investment in the Porsche business and the local region.
* 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.
