Two intense, busy years formed part of one of the most complex development programs in
The Weissach Development Centre is situated around 25 kilometers from the main factory in Zuffenhausen and it offers the perfect facilities to support great visions. A test area, laboratories, simulator, workshop, test track – all directly on site. This is where new ideas are tested. Where things evolve. Where experimentation and testing take place. Again and again until the whole package is just right. 100 per cent. And even then further improvements are still made. Based on the motto: Only the best is good enough. This is the place where visions are developed, ground-breaking solutions are sought – and found. And rigorous testing is carried out here as well: On the 2.5 km test track nothing remains hidden.
* 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.
