718 Cayman on display at the Royal Automobile Club

28/7/2016

On Thursday 28 July, Porsche Centre Mayfair held an exclusive showcase of the new 718 Cayman. Guests were treated to a VIP reception at the prestigious Royal Automobile Club on Pall Mall with the 718 Cayman on display in the rotunda.

Founded in 1897 and given its Royal Charter in 1907, the Royal Automobile Club is the oldest and most esteemed motoring organisation in the UK. With a history steeped in motorsport, the RAC held the first Tourist Trophy in 1905, which remains the longest standing continuously competed motor sports event. The Club promoted the first pre-war and post-war Grands Prix at Brooklands in 1926 and Silverstone in 1948 respectively, whilst continuing to campaign for the rights of the motorist, including the introduction of the first driving licences.

Greg Hardy-Smith, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Mayfair, said “We were delighted to be involved with such a fantastic event. The Royal Automobile Club with its rich history and lavish Rotunda was the perfect setting for our exclusive launch of the new 718 Cayman."

Evo magazine had this to say about the new 718 Cayman: 'The Porsche Cayman has finally come of age... it has been allowed to mature into a more potent, credible and desirable model in its own right and emerges from the 911’s shadow as a brilliant all-round package that needs no excuses.'
