Last Friday saw local Porsche fan, Shivam Nathwani, visit our Centre for an exclusive behind the scenes tour of our workshop and showroom. Shivam browsed the full range and took a trip into the workshop and valet bay to see our team at work. After the tour, Shivam was given a special Porsche goody bag and a personalised number plate from our Parts department.
Shivam has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a severe muscle-wasting condition. His life thus far has been an endless cycle of operations, physiotherapy, medication and a 24-hour supply of oxygen. A fundraising campaign in conjunction with Rainbows Hospice has been launched to help Shivam raise money to get a new power-assisted wheelchair which will better suit his needs.
Shivam's overwhelming passion and enthusiasm for cars, in spite of the restrictions he faces in life; is truly inspiring. Although he may not be able to drive a car himself, the hope is that having the new power-assisted wheelchair will help him feel a little more like the racing driver he imagines being.
If you would like support Shivam's Wheelchair Fund (SWF) supported by Rainbows Children's Charity, you can donate online.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. 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. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
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.
