APRIL edition.

Welcome to Pit Stop. Your one-stop destination for all the latest news, reviews, and exclusives within the world of Porsche, BMW, MINI, BMW Motorrad & INEOS Grenadier.


The new Porsche Taycan has landed and it has a particularly extensive update. The new versions have more power, more range, accelerate quicker and charge faster with greater stability.

Style Porsche has also sharpened the design and more strongly differentiated the Turbo models. All Taycan versions feature an even more extensive standard equipment list and come with the latest generation of the Porsche Driver Experience with an improved display and control concept.

All three body variants feature numerous modifications – the Taycan sports sedan, the versatile Taycan Cross Turismo, which is available with an off-road package, and the sporting-yet-practical Taycan Sport Turismo. In each case, four powertrain options are available, with rear- and all-wheel drive variants. Book your test drive* at Porsche Centre Preston today.
