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, 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.
