"In the beginning, I looked around and could not find quite the car I dreamed of, so I decided to build it myself." - Ferry Porsche
In 1948, Ferry Porsche realised his dream of a sports car: with his team, he produced the Porsche 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster. It marked the birth of a legendary brand and laid the foundation for an exemplary success story, for the Porsche legend.
Porsche is committed to inspiring innovative dreamers who open their eyes to new horizons and bravely set out to build a legacy. Chasing down visions of better. Adding colour as they go. Together our dreams will colour the next 75 years. “75 years of Porsche stand for a pioneering spirit, passion and dreams. We are celebrating together with people who are inspired by dreams,” says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG.
This year, at Porsche Centre Preston, we celebrate 75 Years of Porsche in full colour - powered by our dreamers. And we are inviting our owners and enthusiasts along for the ride. Take the keys. Join us.
On Thursday 8 June, the official 75th birthday of Porsche, we celebrated with over 350 of our Owners & Enthusiasts. Our Centre came alive with colour, with a breathtaking line up of Porsche including a Exclusive Manufaktur 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet with its stunning floral display courtesy of Flora and Fauna. DJ Sophie Wright also took to the stage, bringing the feel-good vibes throughout the night.
The highlight of the evening was the unveiling of our Art Car, in continued collaboration with local artist Carla Raads . Carla commissioned an exclusive piece of art which embodies the true spirit of Driven By Dreams. We were also honoured to be joined by one of the world's leading contemporary figurative artists, and friend of Carla, Lincoln Townley , who joined her on stage to present the car.
1/3 signed prints was raffled off and raised over £2,000 for the Community Foundation for Lancashire Women’s Fund, a charity very close to our Centre.

To the extent that fuel and energy 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. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
