There's not much to look forward to in February. Except, for Valentine's Day. If you’re yet to start a Porsche love affair, we've chosen our favourites from our current range of pre-owned Porsche, as a potential partner for you.
And if you'd like to meet your prospective new amour, get in touch and let Dick Lovett Porsche’s matchmaking service set up a date for you.
Here are a few ideas for romantic evenings or days out with your dearly beloved (Porsche, that is – human companion optional).
A pocketful of sunshine
Sunset on Valentine’s Day is at around 5.25pm – so why not drive out to a panoramic beauty spot and enjoy the glorious streaks of red, gold and turquoise flooding the skies (British weather permitting!).
Take the scenic route to Deer Leap, near Priddy in Somerset, which enjoys breathtaking views. Or, if you're more of a lark, sunrise can be just as spectacular.
A pre-owned Porsche 718 Boxster is a purist’s delight and the perfect companion; a cheeky, fun-loving charmer that's always good company. Wrap up warmly, get the roof down and let the wind blow your winter blues away.
Catch a falling star
When the February skies are clear, it’s a wonderful time for stargazing. Drive out in an Approved Used Porsche Panamera, with its panoramic roof, and admire heaven's light show from the best seat in the house.
Make the most of the Panamera's chassis controls, which intensify the driving experience. While the advanced assistance systems, including Porsche InnoDrive, make driving on dark country roads safer and far more relaxing.
Lazing on a Sunday afternoon
Extend Valentine's Day over the weekend with a day trip to somewhere atmospheric and evocative.
Like adorable Castle Combe, the picturesque ruins of Ogmore Castle in Wales, or stunning National Trust properties such as Stourhead or Great Chalfield Manor near Melksham. Find a local pub with a blazing fire and get cosy with your favourite person.
A pre-owned Porsche 718 Cayman was made for the West’s winding roads. Its track-inspired performance and handling makes it the ultimate choice for those moments when you just want to drive for the pure joy of it.
Take a walk on the wild side
The Porsche Cayenne loves a bit of off-roading, so why not invite one on a camping or glamping weekend? No need to travel light.
The Cayenne's boot offers you up to 770 litres of space and over double that with the seats down. Find all the equipment and accessories you need to perfect your Approved Used Porsche’s functionality and finesse in the Porsche Tequipment finder.
Saturday night at the movies
The iconic Porsche 911 is a totally timeless machine for the new decade. Uncompromisingly stylish, it demands an equally smart date idea.
Like a scenic road trip to a drive-in cinema with a romantic starlit route home. Film & Chill runs events in Chepstow, Gloucester, Hereford and Okehampton. Just one proviso – maybe wait for warmer days.
The 911 Cabriolet comes alive in summer. It’s precision and comfort feeling even more impressive with the roof down. Settle into the comfy, body-embracing seats and enjoy the ride – and the film.
Beside the seaside
When your true love is spending time with the family, how about a winter trip to the seaside? Too cold to paddle perhaps, but never too cold for a run on the beach, fish and chips and an unseasonable ice cream.
A used Porsche Macan was designed for the demands and joys of family life. With plenty of space for everyone plus the bike, wet-weather gear and more.
Don’t forget to pack a Porsche cool bag – with its 12 V connection, generous 12 litre capacity and vehicle battery exhaustive discharge protection, perfect for snacks and drinks to keep the kids happy on the journey.
A spoonful of sugar
If you love the classics, Dick Lovett Porsche Centre Swindon has a range of classic Used Porsches for you to choose from, including the classic of classics, the Project 20 Boxster.
And for a date befitting a classic, hit the road and head to Ettington in Warwickshire – an attractive Cotswold village near Stratford-upon-Avon – where you’ll find Caffeine & Machine: a coffee house, restaurant, art gallery and general hangout for car and bike lovers alike.
