On 28 September Porsche Centre Leicester hosted 20 guests for an exclusive ladies event, involving a trip to Cocoa Amore in Leicester city centre and a scenic drive to Kilworth House.
Arriving at the Centre from 11.00am, guests were presented with a gift pack including an assortment of Porsche merchandise and directions for the journey ahead.
Guests paired up and were allocated a new car from the Porsche model range, including a 718 Boxster S, 718 Cayman GTS, Macan and new Cayenne. They headed off to the first destination based in the heart of Leicester's Lanes and were treated to VIP parking thanks to the Highcross Shopping Centre.
Upon arrival at Cocoa Amore, guests were taught the origins of cocoa powder, farming procedures and production techniques. The lesson included a series of chocolate sampling and was highly insightful. By the end, guests were able to identify the varying characteristics of chocolates grown in different climates and countries. The group were then tasked with making their very own ganache truffles, using authentic cocoa and 100% natural ingredients, following which mini Porsche chocolates were made using the silicon ice cube trays from the Porsche Driver's Selection range.
The second part of the day was held at Kilworth House, allowing guests to enjoy the 35-minute scenic drive through rural Leicestershire. Greeted with refreshments, the group joined other guests in their renowned orangery where they were served a decadent afternoon tea.
After spending time to enjoy the beautiful house and surroundings, guests began the journey back to Porsche Centre Leicester to end the fun-filled day.
* 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.
