CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: PICK OF THE PORSCHE PRESENTS
From stocking fillers, to four-wheeled thrills, Porsche has a full range of Christmas gift ideas on-hand for 2015, making it easy to find the perfect present for the discerning Porsche enthusiast or petrolhead this festive season.
From the most exhilarating driving courses on offer in 2016 at the Silverstone-based Porsche Experience Centre, to the latest time pieces, toys and accessories from the Porsche Driver's Selection, there's something for every age or budget.
For a flat-out foray into the world of Porsche sports cars, the Porsche GT driving experience at Silverstone (£750 per person) will put guests behind the wheel of the company's most extreme road-legal race cars. With expert tuition and coaching from a dedicated Porsche Driving Consultant, the on-track action begins with a thrilling 30-minute drive of the brand-new 911 Carrera. Then it's an adrenaline-fuelled two hours in one of the incredible array of modern Porsche classics, including the 997 GT3 RS, the mighty 997 4.0 litre RS or the latest 911 GT3 RS. The day includes two complimentary meals (breakfast and lunch or lunch and afternoon tea) at our exclusive Silverstone restaurant.
There's also the option to choose your favourite Porsche model from the range for a high-octane 90 minute one-to-one driving experience at the Silverstone Experience Centre (£295). Available to anyone over the age of 18 with a full and valid driving licence, the sessions are tailored to each individual, providing a truly unique and bespoke experience. Guests can also choose a premium upgrade for the chance to drive the new Boxster Spyder, Cayman GT4 or the new 911 Turbo - a must for those in search of an extra thrill (£345).
Mixing style with durability, Porsche Driver's Selection have launched a brand-new 911 Winter Collection. At the forefront of the new range is the limited edition, Swiss-made automatic watch with interchangeable straps allowing you to switch between your choice of classic black leather or sophisticated stainless steel. Complete with stylish presentation box, the set includes a limited edition Porsche badge and a 911 model sculpture: the perfect gift for all Porsche fans this Christmas (£1,300 - available from November). To stay warm in the winter frost, the collection also introduces a classic black two-in-one windproof jacket with removable lined gilet in matching styles for both him and her (£380).
Bringing a touch of retro cool is the exclusive Porsche Classic Cooler (£450) inspired by the early air-cooled 911 models. This authentic wine cooler serves as the perfect accompaniment to the Porsche vintage wine bottle stopper (£35) and bottle opener (£40).
A fury companion for our youngest fans this Christmas comes in the form of a Giant Motorsport teddy bear (£150), dressed in the official Porsche race suit with matching cap and numbered pass, whilst the iconic Porsche 911 silhouette is recreated in the My First Porsche wooden sports car (£16), complete with rear spoiler.
The 911 is celebrating over 50 years as one of the World's most iconic sports cars and is also available in the metal. The new generation 911 Carrera and Carrera S models are no exception and provide the perfect gift idea for collectors (£36).
Finally, the Porsche Driver's Selection has an exciting range of festive accessories that may come in handy whether at work or at home. Starting with the Sport Classic Briefcase (£450), there's also the iconic Porsche 911 computer mouse (£60), classic leather iPad Air case (£140) and high capacity 911 Carrera USB stick (£35) - there is something for even the most discerning enthusiast.
