In July we have a welcome return to our showroom of the Porsche 356 which we started selling in 1957 when we took on the Porsche Franchise.
We are pleased to announce that we will be displaying the Porsche Club 356 in our showroom from Monday 6th July to Saturday 11th July and we invite people to come and view this stunning car.
Those not familiar with this model will be interested to read that on 8 June 1948, the first version, the 356/1 Roadster produced in Gmünd (in Carinthia, Austria) was road-certified. Essentially this made the 356 the first production road car to bear the Porsche name.
The "Gmünd Roadster" was powered by a 1.1-litre air-cooled flat-four engine. The engine's power was increased to 35 hp for the 356. The roadster weighed just 585 kilograms and reached speeds of up to 135 km/h (83 mph).
The Porsche Club 356 will be accessible to view during normal opening hours which are 9am – 6pm weekdays and 9am – 5pm Saturday.
We look forward to seeing you should you be able to attend.
*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.
