. From the children’s bedroom wall to the roads – Paul Casey’s passion for motor racing goes a long, long way back. “I’ve basically always loved sports cars. When I was a kid, I had a poster of the

“I’ll be going for the pin on the 17th. At tournaments where there’s cars I don’t like quite so much as hole-in-one prizes, I always promise to give them to my caddy. It’s definitely not something I’ll be doing this time around,” laughs Casey, who grew up near to the famous Brands Hatch race circuit and who was given the motorsport bug from an early age. “I love racing. But I’ll never become a racing driver now – even though I dreamt about it for a long time.”
Now he is dreaming of owning the whole range of 911 GT3 models at some stage. “The

The consumption and CO2 emission values were determined in accordance with the new Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The NEDC values derived from this should continue to be specified for the time being. These values cannot be compared to the values determined in accordance with the NEDC measuring procedure used up to now.
911 GT3 RS: Fuel consumption combined 13.2 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 303 g/km

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity 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 1 September 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, regardless of the type approval process 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 and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
