Porsche Centre Kuwait hosted an exclusive track day event at the new SIRBB circuit in Shuwaikh. Bloggers and media representatives were invited to experience Porsche’s latest innovations in performance, safety and comfort first hand.
A fleet of nine Porsche models was used during the event. Technologies such as the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Stability Management (PSM) were all shown in full effect.
Under the supervision of Porsche certified instructors, guests took part in five on-track activities, kicking off with the launch control test which saw the Porsche Panamera GTS demonstrate the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) capabilities as well as the enhanced braking ability of the car, all adding to a smoother driver experience.
The iconic Porsche 911, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and was represented at the test day by the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S, brought to life Porsche’s superior handling technology and stabilisation in the slalom test.
The Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne GTS perfectly personified how the brand’s performance heritage carries through all its models, with the sporty SUV demonstrating its acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 4.7 and 5.7 seconds respectively on the track. The braking abilities of the car were also on display with the PSM system kicking in to highlight the model’s superior safety.
The mid-engine Porsche Boxster S and Cayman S proofed their exceptional agility in the handling test, when participants experienced the models’ flat-six engines, balanced handling, and vivid steering up close.
With the day at SIRBB Circuit, Porsche Centre Kuwait demonstrated that the brand has always had its roots firmly in motorsport and remains true to this tradition, breathing new life into it with every new Porsche by using intelligent technologies.
