On 22 February, Porsche Centre Mayfair was delighted to sponsor the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s (OAE) prestigious gala dinner.
The OAE is one of the world’s leading period instrument orchestras, reaching audiences of five million through performances, broadcasts and recordings in the UK and internationally.
As part of our support, we provided a new Panamera Sport Turismo to chauffeur violinist Nicola Benedetti and soprano Sarah Tynan to the venue. We also donated a Porsche Driving Experience for auction.
Catherine Kinsler, Development Manager at OAE, said: ”I am so grateful to Porsche Centre Mayfair for their support of the event, which raised much needed funds for the OAE. This will help us achieve our ambition of reaching the widest possible audience with our enlightened programmes.”
Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Mayfair, Greg Hardy-Smith, said: “We are thrilled to align ourselves with one of the top orchestras in the world. The prestige associated with the OAE is one that reflects our brand.”
* 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.
