Porsche factory collection in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen: A 70-year success story

0

Seven decades ago on May 26, 1950, an unprecedented success story started, when the first Porsche vehicle was collected from the factory in Zuffenhausen by its new owner. To this day, customers choose to pick up their new car directly from the plant to get as close as possible to the brand’s roots. In the anniversary year, the factory collection programme includes the brand’s first electric sports car, the Taycan.

When Ottomar Domnick took ownership of his sports car on May 26, 1950 outside on a field in front of Plant 1, the history of the Porsche factory collection began. It was a Porsche 356 in Fish Silver with the commission number 5001. Being the first customer in Germany was a dream come true for the specialist in neurology and psychiatry. When he collected his Porsche, Domnick was 43 years old – incidentally the same age as Florian Boehme who received his first electric sports car in Zuffenhausen last February.

Before the celebratory handover, Ottomar Domnick took the passenger seat in his Porsche 356 next to Herbert Linge, who had invited him to take a final test drive. Herbert Linge started his training at Porsche KG in April 1943 and was one of the first mechanics to be employed, after Porsche returned to the area of Stuttgart from Gmünd in Austria at the end of 1949. “I was 14 years old when I started work at the first Porsche training workshop. In those days, we were six mechanics and two technical draftsmen. Ferdinand Porsche often walked past our workshop with important guests in tow. He would always stop to say hello while keeping his guests waiting for a short time. That’s something I’ll never forget,” says Herbert Linge, who clearly remembers every car collection at the factory. “When Ottomar Domnick collected his Porsche 356, he really celebrated the occasion. But, he had been coming to the factory every day to see how far on we were with the work. Even Ferry Porsche briefly dropped in when the doctor was presented with his sports car.”

Until today, the factory collection at Porsche’s headquarters is a special experience for customers. “The most exciting aspect of this first encounter is that customers have never actually seen the car before,” explains Tobias Donnevert, Head of Factory Collection and Sales Operations Personalisation. “They configure their car of choice in the Porsche Centre or together with a consultant from the Porsche Exclusive Manufacture department and only see the colour combinations on photos or tiles. So when they collect their personalized Porsche, they are seeing it for the very first time. This is a very special moment at the beginning of the handover.”

At the plant in Zuffenhausen, Tobias Donnevert and his team welcome around 20 customers every day who come to collect their new cars. In 2019, a total of 2,500 Porsche owners opted for a collection directly from the factory, in addition to almost 3,000 who visited Porsche’s second plant in Leipzig. Before collecting their car, customers are invited to take a tour of the factory and see, for example, how the Porsche 911 is manufactured in Zuffenhausen. A visit to the Porsche Museum is also part of the offered programme. At Porsche in Leipzig, customers are given an insight into the production of the Macan and Panamera models. They can also take a test run in a similar Porsche on the plant’s own FIA-certified race track.

The Domnick Foundation, which manages his estate today, still has the original order form from Ottomar Domnick with the commission number 5001. The order was processed by the Volkswagen Hahn dealership as there was no Porsche sales network in Germany back then. “Volkswagen” had been crossed out by hand and replaced with “Porsche-Sport” on the order form. To this day, Ottomar Domnick’s Porsche 356 represents the beginning of Porsche sales in Germany, and it also directly stands for the start of personal factory collections in Zuffenhausen.

J.K. ROWLING AND WIZARDING WORLD PARTNERS LAUNCH ‘HARRY POTTER AT HOME’ IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19 EMERGENCY

0

J.K. Rowling and her Wizarding World partners have announced three new initiatives under the banner Harry Potter At Home, to help children, parents, carers and teachers confined at home during the Covid-19 outbreak.  

 

The first initiative – a new digital hub packed with information and activities for children, parents and carers – will be hosted on WizardingWorld.com. Then throughout the month of April, partnerships with Audible and OverDrive will allow families to access free audiobooks and eBooks of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Meanwhile, the print publishers of Harry Potter, Bloomsbury and Scholastic are also supporting the effort. Full details of all the Harry Potter At Home initiatives are published today on www.harrypotterathome.com.

 

J.K. Rowling said:

 

“The teachers, parents and carers working to keep children’s lives as normal and happy as possible while we’re all on lockdown deserve a bit of magic. I hope these initiatives will give children and even adults a happy distraction during their enforced stay-at-home time.’

 

Neil Blair, founder of J.K. Rowling’s agency, The Blair Partnership, said:

 

‘The Harry Potter books have always been a refuge, comfort and escape for readers, and right now, we need reading for pleasure more than ever. Many households will already have a Harry Potter book at home, but I’m delighted that we can now provide free online access to the audio and eBook of the first book in the series, through Audible and libraries, for all to enjoy, as well as a fantastic new digital hub for families with younger children to help them through these difficult times.’

 

The Harry Potter At Home hub will be an online space for younger children to discover the magic of Harry Potter – either on their own, or reading and listening together with parents, carers and loved ones. Wizarding Wednesdays on the hub and on social media will, each week, provide a wealth of creative and craft activities, quizzes and fun things to do for parents and carers, and a regular email newsletter will bring fresh ideas into their inboxes each Friday. The hub is live at www.harrypotterathome.com from today.

 

Supporting the Harry Potter At Home effort is Audible, the world’s largest producer and provider of original spoken-word entertainment and audiobooks. Audible is making the audiobook of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone free as part of its newly-launched Audible Stories collection, allowing children everywhere to stream it instantly for free in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Japanese. Listeners will be able to access the audiobook on their desktop, laptop, phone or tablet, without joining or logging into Audible. The English language version will be performed by Stephen Fry, in both the UK and, for the first time, in North America.  

 

Thanks to a Harry Potter At Home collaboration with digital library supplier OverDrive, library members worldwide are also able to borrow the first book in the series free of charge during the month of April. Patrons of OverDrive’s network of public and school libraries worldwide will have unlimited access to the eBook and audiobook in a selection of over 20 different languages, until 30th April.

 

The three new Harry Potter At Home initiatives announced today follow the announcement on 20th March that J.K. Rowling has granted a temporary Open Licence to allow teachers to record and post videos of themselves reading the Harry Potter books aloud to their classes on school networks.  The Open Licence has already been taken up widely by teachers in the USA, UK and further afield, and is running until 30th July or the end of the school year, whichever is sooner.

 

Bloomsbury and Scholastic, print publishers of Harry Potter in the UK and USA, are also supporting Harry Potter At Home by offering a range of resources for children, parents and educators online both on www.harrypotterathome.com and on their own websites – links for these are in Notes to Editors below.

 

Further exciting initiatives for Harry Potter At Home are currently in development and will be announced in due course.

 

HONOR MagicWatch 2 receives the much awaited SpO2 and the latest Female Cycle Tracking Features in India

0

HONOR, the global leading tech brand for youth, today announced two new updates for its latest smartwatch – the HONOR MagicWatch 2. With these two unique and innovative improvements – Spo2 and Female Cycle Tracking features, the HONOR MagicWatch 2 will enable users to have a great overview of your overall health. The SpO2 feature will be available on both 42mm (4.2 cm) and 46mm (4.6 cm) variants. Whereas, the female cycle tracker feature roll out will come on the 42mm (4.2 cm) variant first and later on the 46mm (4.6 cm) variant.

The users, in India, have started receiving the much awaited SpO2 feature via software/ firmware OTA (Over the Air) update from 14th April, 2020 on both the variants. The latest Female Cycle Tracking feature have started rolling from 15th April, 2020 on the 42mm variant. On 46mm variant of the HONOR MagicWatch 2, the Female Cycle Tracking feature update is expected to roll out soon.

SpO2 (Blood Oxygen Saturation) Detection feature[1]

HONOR is the first company in India to introduce SpO2 feature into its wearables, giving it an edge over other fitness trackers and smartwatches within the same price segment. The feature allows the users to track the oxygen saturation level in their blood to keep a better check of their health and fitness.

How does it helps?

The oxygen levels in the blood decreases after exercise or physical exertions, whether planned or unplanned. The SpO2 feature helps detect the blood oxygen levels. Taking a cue from the blood oxygen saturation level individual can choose to rest or do some breathing exercises to get the blood oxygen back to normal levels.

With the help of the SpO2 feature users can understand how their body is adapting and adjusting to their workouts, sleep cycles and environmental changes. Blood oxygenation, which increases during workouts or other activities, is necessary to supply the energy your muscles need to function. The higher the oxygen content in the blood, the better the metabolism of the human being.

Generally, the reading of blood oxygen saturation level in any individual should be anywhere between 90 percent – 100 percent. If the SpO2 reading persists below 90%, it is advisable to review and seek fitness/ medical advice.

Female Cycle Tracker[2]

Keeping women’s health in mind, HONOR has introduced a unique feature to help keep a track of women’s menstrual cycle and fertility window symptoms. This Female Cycle Tracking feature in the
HONOR MagicWatch 2 will notify period predictions, menstrual cycle data and estimated fertility period, alongside other health features such as Sleep, Heart Rate, SpO2 and other daily activities to track data and, draw inferences and connections. The feature can be best experienced by syncing it with the Huawei Health App, which allows the users to check all their stats at one place.

HONOR Magic Watch 2 is made from 361L stainless steel, comes in 46mm (4.6 cm) and 42mm (4.2 cm) AMOLED touchscreen display with a resolution of 454×454 for 46mm and 390×390 for 42mm at 326 PPI, customized and personalized Watch Faces, World’s First Wearable Chipset – Kirin A1 Chipset, 15 Goal-based Fitness Modes, Voice-over Guidance, 13 different Running and Swimming courses, 24×7 Hearth Rate Monitor, Scientific Sleep Monitoring, GPS and GLONASS tracking system, 5ATM Water Resistance, Wireless Music Playback and Built-In Storage, Bluetooth Calling (only available on 46mm variant), Call Notifications and Rejection, Find My Phone, Push Notifications, Weather, Alarm, Stopwatch, Timer and a lot more.

RIL particularly records its appreciation for its essential staff across the various divisions, our own heroes, who have effectively formed a second line of defence against the Virus, supporting the frontline forces as well as the people fighting from their homes, and being part of the formidable buffer, which keeps the nation’s response effective and ongoing.
