Festival of Dreams celebrates 75 years of Porsche’s success story
An array of exciting activities and displays await Porsche enthusiasts and fans this weekend at PGA Cars EDSA in Greenhills, San Juan.
Porsche Philippines will be celebrating 75 years of Porsche sports cars with the “Festival of Dreams” event, marking 75 years since Ferry Porsche decided to create his own sports car and laid the foundation for what would become the Porsche legend.
Lined up for Porsche enthusiasts and fans expected to flock to Festival of Dreams are individualized presentations of new Porsche models in the country, as well as the opportunity for test drives. Guests can also view displays that highlight special moments from Porsche’s history and a variety of iconic Porsche sports cars. Food trucks and plenty of outdoor and indoor dining spaces will further create a festive atmosphere.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the state-of-the-art Porsche Center will also take place at the Festival of Dreams event, with the new building set to rise soon beside the existing facility.
Adding more significance to the milestone event is the unveiling of the new Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid, which expands the new Cayenne lineup that was launched last September. The new Cayenne E-Hybrid is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo engine producing 304 PS and is paired with an electric motor that's integrated into an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Together, the combustion engine and electric motor achieve a combined output of 470 PS and 650 Nm of torque. This lets the new Cayenne E-Hybrid sprint to 100 km/h from a standstill in 4.9 seconds, reaching a top speed of 254 km/h.
Along with the Cayenne E-Hybrid, the rest of the Cayenne range will be displayed at Festival of Dreams, along with a few examples of the Porsche Macan, 718 Cayman and Boxster, Panamera, the fully electric Taycan, and the legendary 911 — the direct descendant of Ferry Porsche’s dream-come-true sports car.
The Porsche Festival of Dreams will be held on December 9 and 10, 2023.
