A new six-month initiative means selected Porsche models are available ‘on-demand’ at the tap of an app in London.
The promotion, provided by One Transport and powered by Gett, is limited exclusively to current Porsche customers as well as a selection of Gett’s high-value customers, who may consider a Porsche in future.
Porsche Cars Great Britain’s partnership with One Transport and the Gett app is the first of its kind worldwide. It enhances the existing app, by providing premium personal transport in a Porsche. With ownership patterns in the automotive industry rapidly changing and car use in urban areas evolving, the project in London will provide the first real-world evaluation of a new premium mobility offer.
Ragnar Schulte, General Manager Marketing at Porsche Cars Great Britain said: “We’re delighted that our customers will be able to travel in Porsche cars in central London with chauffeurs. This premium travel initiative will last six months with results being used to inform our future strategy for ‘on-demand’, premium transportation. We invite all users to give feedback on this new service.”
The Cayenne S E-Hybrid and the Macan will join the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid as part of the Gett fleet. The premium Porsche experience will extend beyond the car with each driver having completed specialist training at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone.
The use of Porsche hybrid cars underlines the pioneering role Porsche has played in the development of premium plug-in hybrid sports cars; made evident by the production of both the Cayenne and Panamera models, which were the first plug-in hybrids in their segments. Combining a powerful V6 petrol engine and a responsive electric motor, these cars embody the Porsche principle of intelligent performance. With a range of up to 35 miles in electric mode, they demonstrate how our engineers balance traditional levels of sports car performance with changing social perceptions and environmental responsibilities.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
