On Friday 21 September Porsche Centre Tewkesbury hosted a special event for Macan owners which included a combination of three luxury marques: Porsche sports cars, HeliAir Helicopters and Chase Gin.
The guests were shown around the workshop and had a close-up look at their Macan with our Porsche-trained Technicians, before receiving a brief presentation about the Macan from our Sales Manager, Emma Durber and Aftersales Manager, Hannah Lewis.
The convoy then left Porsche Centre Tewkesbury for HeliAir at Gloucester Airport and were greeted by three R22 helicopters that took half of the guests to Chase Distillery, while the rest proceeded in the convoy. At Chase Farm the group took a tour of the distillery, finding out about the interesting history of the brand and the processes used today to make vodka and gin. For lunch the group visited Verzon Restaurant for a two-course menu in their beautiful dining room, with a view of the helicopters and Porsche cars lined up on the driveway.
When the guests returned to Porsche Centre Tewkesbury, they were reunited with their vehicles which had undergone a health check.

* 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.
