On Friday 24 February, Porsche Centre Guildford hosted a Porsche drive out day to the prestigious Kennels at Goodwood Estate. Guests travelled from the Porsche Centre in a fleet of 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman models, visiting The Mulberry Inn en route.
Once housing the Duke of Richmond’s hunting hounds, The Kennels are steeped in tradition but have been updated with a modern twist. An ideal venue to showcase and draw parallels with the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman.
Adam Flint, Centre Principal at Porsche Centre Guildford said “A big thank you to the organisers at The Kennels. The hospitality was fantastic, providing the perfect destination for our drive out event. The team at Porsche Centre Guildford and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and we look forward to more drive days to The Kennels in the future.”
Since their release, the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman have received plenty of positive press coverage with Auto Express stating the 718 Boxster “responds instantly, and there’s so much front-end grip that you can place the car with laser-guided accuracy. The sparkling handling, tweaked bodyshape and upgraded interior of the 718 Boxster makes it one of the most desirable roadsters money can buy."
Evo magazine also had this to say about the 718 Cayman: "The Porsche Cayman has finally come of age... it has been allowed to mature into a more potent, credible and desirable model in its own right and emerges from the shadow of 911 as a brilliant all-round package that needs no excuses."
* 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.
