On Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September 2016, Porsche Centre Reading will take part in the annual Kop Hill Climb.
Held near Princes Risborough, a small market town in the heart of rural Buckinghamshire, the Kop Hill Climb has seen a revival in recent years. There has been a surge in popularity with turnouts last year of an estimated 16,500 visitors. The hill climb is now a must-see event for many motor enthusiasts with plenty of new, unique, classic and iconic vehicles on display over the weekend.
The Kop Hill Climb was originally started to raise funds for just a few local charities, however, the event has grown to raise an outstanding £75,000 in 2015 and over £300,000 since its inception. The funds raised go to a wide range of community projects and charities with a key focus on helping youth, the elderly and those disadvantaged.
The hill climb itself is a showcase for the power and grace of some of the classic cars and challenges the older cars and bikes to simply make it to the top.
Last year Porsche Centre Reading had the full model range on display, and this year are delighted to welcome a few additions, including the new 911 and the 718 Boxster.
Sean Wilson, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Reading said “The event is now a firm favourite in the motor enthusiast’s diary and after last year’s success, we are delighted to be taking part in the Kop Hill Climb once again. It is fantastic to see the newer models alongside some of the classic Porsche cars, showing how far the brand and technology have progressed over the years whilst maintaining the iconic Porsche look.”

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
