Behind the Scenes at Porsche Taycan Training
Our Porsche team visit Porche New Zealand HQ to drive the new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo.
Mark Lincoln: Well, I’d held the title of Marketing Manager of Archibalds Porsche for all of 4 weeks before I found myself at the Porsche Taycan training day where I, amongst the rest of our team, would get my heands on the new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. What a welcome to the brand!
At the dealer-only event, Porsche’s experts hold a number of workshops on the Porsche Taycan, from various charging methods to the range of accessories available, followed by the moment everyone was waiting for: a drive into the hills in a convoy of luxury electric vehicles.
Not just Taycans, the team get to drive close competitors in the EV market (although to be honest, the Porsche Taycan is in a class of its own). This allows our sales specialists to talk intelligently to customer about other vehicles they may be considering, drawing on their own first-hand experience.
I took a few photos which you can view below (please excuse my amateur cellphone photos), or drop by the showroom to view the Porsche Taycan and Taycan Cross Turismo (when it arrives) for yourself. You won’t regret it.
A special thanks to Archibalds Porsche for being so welcoming, and to the following members of the Porsche New Zealand team for sharing their expertise:
- Glen Campbell, Training & People Excellence
- Ehrin Wardlow, Service & Training Manager
- Stefanie McCallum, Marketing Manager
