Last month I was invited to Stuttgart, to visit the Porsche headquarters on a very rare insight into the workings of one of the automotive superpowers. The reason for my visit was one which, I can honestly say, I didn’t deserve, it was for a private viewing of Porsche’s hypercar the 918 Spyder, for potential clients…. I do not fall into that category, but thankfully, our customer who was unable to make it and sent me along, did!
Initially I was sent an invitation pack, with the bare bones of information on the car, but more intriguingly a carbon fibre card, seemingly giving the named, entry to the rarely seen R&D Department in Stuttgart.
A week or so later I was contacted by Porsche to book my flights and off we went, we were treated incredibly well as you would expect, for customers of the 670,000 GBP plus HyperCar, we were greated with goodies upon arrival at the hotel including 918 Spyder inscribed chocolates and merchandise.
