Taking place at Goodwood House in Sussex, from Thursday 12 to Sunday 15 July 2018, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is an annual celebration of motoring. This year Porsche will take centre stage, as the featured marque for the third time, to celebrate 70 years of Porsche.
One of the highlights of this year’s festival is a moving display of iconic Porsche models which have shaped our history over the last seven decades, from racing royalty to engineering innovators.
The Porsche Experience Centre will once again showcase the very latest in technical innovation and design across the full Porsche model range and guests will be able to immerse themselves in the world of Porsche through interactive exhibits on the stand, including the hugely popular Cayenne Driving Experience. Our Porsche Driver’s Selection shop will also provide the opportunity for guests to take a piece of Porsche design home with them.
As well as the Porsche Experience Centre, a collection of Porsche legends will take on the infamous Goodwood Hillclimb – including the very first car ever built by Porsche, the 1948 356 No.1, and the latest star in Porsche motorsport history, the 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car, three-time Le Mans Champion and winner of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship.
The Porsche sculpture, by Gerry Judah, will also be unveiled at the festival, in its prime location in front of Goodwood House, a must see for any Porsche enthusiast.
* 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.
