On Tuesday 14 August, Porsche Centre Leicester hosted a small group of guests to experience the new Cayenne and 718 Boxster, by testing them out on the challenging courses at Millbrook Proving Ground.
Guests arrived at Flitwick Manor for a welcome briefing and refreshments, before heading over to Millbrook to fulfil their driving experience. The cars were put through their paces along the Alpine Track, High-speed Bowl and Mile Straight, with guests able to experience their fantastic handling and performance capabilities.
The Alpine Track offered a series of thrilling roads with undulations, unexpected inclines and chicanes, all within the stunning forest landscape. The High-speed Bowl allowed drivers to reach speeds of up to 120mph, experiencing the powers of centrifugal force as part of a hands-off driving experience. The Mile Straight highlighted the impressive capabilities of the Porsche braking system, as guests performed emergency stops from 100mph acceleration. The safety function of the emergency brakes and hazard lighting were also demonstrated through this exercise.
Guests were impressed with the unique experience, with many commenting on the diverse properties of the models, ranging from their speed performance, comfort options, and the safety features.

* 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.
