Porsche Centre Bristol was delighted to support a fantastic cause on Wednesday 19 September. Centre Principal Andrew Remnant and Technician Patrick Foley drove two Porsche cars to the Lifeboat station in Portishead to greet the RNLI 911 Challenge participants, James and Belinda.
The couple is driving anti-clockwise around the British Isles visiting all 238 RNLI Lifeboat Stations in their Porsche 911 within 911 hours. They aim to raise at least £238 for each of the lifeboat stations.
Portishead Lifeboat Station, local to Porsche Centre Bristol, is the newest station to be visited on the tour. During their stop, Patrick carried out a check of the 911 to ensure it performs at its best over the remaining miles.
James and Belinda took a few quick photos at the Lifeboat Station and the crew from Portishead gave the 911 a thorough clean.
* 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.
