On Friday 16 February, Porsche Centre West London was delighted to welcome the Royal Air Force Air Cadets for an experience Porsche day.
With a focus on aviation, the Royal Air Force train cadets aged from 12 to 18 to develop citizens with valuable skills for the future whilst offering a range of stimulating and rewarding activities to participate in. From the 282 East Ham Squadron, the cadets were invited for a behind the scenes look at our Centre.
Porsche Centre West London is one of the most impressive and advanced Porsche Centres in Europe, and also one of the largest. With a two storey showroom and Aftersales facility, the day-to-day running of the Centre is a huge logistical operation. The RAF cadets had the opportunity to explore our state-of-the-art facilities to understand each key area of the business and the extensive group effort that goes into maintaining the highest levels of customer service. From guiding a customer through the process of purchasing a new Porsche or Porsche Approved Pre-Owned car to maintaining and taking care of their vehicles.
The cadets also gained some product knowledge of the Porsche range with a guided tour to explore the plethora of vehicles on display at our Centre.
* 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.
