Sepang, Malaysia. A sports car is more than a car. It’s driven by shared experiences and memories, which is the foundation on which Sportscar Together Day was first conceived on in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of Porsche last year. Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) is continuing this tradition and held the first Sportscar Together Day in Malaysia on 3 August 2019. Porsche owners and enthusiasts were united in their celebration of the brand and heritage of Porsche. Featuring race cars, super cars and everyday sports cars, the family-friendly event catered to everybody of all ages and interests.

With over 2,000 visitors joining Porsche to celebrate Sportscar Together Day, droves of Porsche enthusiasts were treated to a closer look at Porsche’s iconic models in its 70-year heritage, including the 911 GT3 Cup race cars from Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, 8 generations of the 911, the 919 Hybrid and the Mission E 1:3 scale model. They learnt the historical milestones of the brand in the Fascination Porsche showcase that provided insights into the past and future of Porsche. In conjunction with Sportscar Together Day, the arrival of the new Macan S to the Malaysia market was also announced.

Fans also witnessed the setting of the new Malaysian Record for ‘Largest Porsche Gathering’ on the internationally-acclaimed Sepang International Circuit, with a recorded 320 Porsche cars. The corral of cars that gathered then celebrated the achievement with a victory lap around the circuit.

As a nod to the sports car DNA that runs deep in every Porsche, enthusiasts who participated at the Porsche Experience left with high adrenaline and a strong understanding of the dynamics of driving a Porsche. Parents who signed their child up for the Porsche Junior Experience programme walked away proud of their child’s achievements on the customised replica of Sepang International Circuit.

Christopher Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance, said, “Celebrating our first 'Sportscar Together Day' in Malaysia is a momentous occasion for us. We are thrilled to be able to share the experience of driving a Porsche with more people than ever before, or even for new enthusiasts to start their journey with Porsche with the introduction of our new 360 Leasing programme.”

Modern mobility options with the Porsche 360 Leasing programme
Sharing more joy and fascination, Sime Darby Auto Performance introduced its latest financing solution, the 360 Leasing programme, another alternative to drive the latest Cayenne and Panamera, while the option for the new Macan through 360 Leasing will be shared soon.*

“The new 360 Leasing programme is another initiative in our continuous effort to offer customers alternative mobility solutions, without being weighed down by the financing commitment or the resale value of their vehicle,” explained Christopher Hunter.

The new 360 Leasing programme is an intelligent alternative to conventional ownership models via financing and provides customers and companies the financial flexibility to drive away with a new Porsche every three years with only a 10 percent or 25 percent refundable security deposit (for company lease or individual lease respectively) based on the selected vehicle value. Customers are required to pay only the monthly lease rental during the three-year lease tenure, which provides customers the opportunity to invest or save their funds that would otherwise be spent on owning the entire cost of the car.

At the end of the lease term, customers have the option to either upgrade their current leased Porsche model to another to enjoy a different driving experience, or upgrade to the latest model in the same range. Customers who have grown accustomed to and love their current model can also opt to extend their lease or potentially acquire ownership of their leased vehicle. Alternatively, they could also decide to return the leased vehicle without worrying about residual value or any additional commitments**.

As part of the peace-of-mind ownership, Porsche vehicles under the 360 Leasing programme come equipped with warranty and maintenance package including service, parts and labour by an authorised Porsche Service Centre. The competitive pricing under this programme also includes a full comprehensive insurance package for all drivers, inclusive of windscreen and natural disaster cover, as well as road tax. Additionally, customers will enjoy 24-hour roadside assistance offered by Porsche Assist in the event of any emergency.
