Christophorus has never been younger than it is today.
Some 270 billion e-mails are sent throughout the world every day. Around 2.5 billion people own a smartphone. Estimates suggest we’ll be downloading around 300 billion apps a year by 2020. What used to be inconceivable is now a matter of course: the smartphone has become our chat room, alarm clock, control center, GPS device, news channel, and movie theater all in one. You can take photos, make videos, go shopping, and play games with it. You can make—or break—your relationships over it. You occasionally even hear about young people making phone calls on it. I have a smartphone, therefore I am. But what does that tell us?
First of all, the Internet and smart devices are changing how we use media in fundamental and irreversible ways. Second, video and audio technology is developing dynamically. And third, the multitude of technical offers and possibilities has a direct impact on our leisure behavior—we create our own digital lifestyle. You’re holding the consequence in your hands—the most varied issue of Christophorus ever produced.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity 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 1 September 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, regardless of the type approval process 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 and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
