8 June 2023 marked a very special anniversary for Porsche, as it celebrated 75 years since Ferry Porsche realised his dream of creating a sports car. With the Porsche 356 No.1 Roadster, he and his team laid the foundation for the Porsche legend when, on this day in 1948, the model received its general operating permit.
Porsche Centre West London invited customers and colleagues to join in with celebrations in Centre which included performances from the Mirror Men, a Saxophonist, Ballet from Masters of Ballet Academy, Piano performances from Coach House Pianos alongside a stunning Bösendorfer Grand designed by F.A. Porsche, a canapés and cheese spread and a pop up bar with drinks including a 'Panamera Paradise', 'Turbo Twist' and 'Speedster Spritz'! The sun was shining to mark the occasion and a great day was had by all.
We look forward to creating many more special memories over the next 75 years.

Values are provided for comparison only. 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.
