    In Sweden they salt the roads = not so nice for the chassi and body in the long term + bigger and wider wheels arent optimal on winter roads, a Audi S4/Mitsubishi Evo beats a Porsche 911 Turbo easy on a ice/snow coverd road in terms of speed. Everything comes from a test, even a Mercedes Benz E 350 4wd beat the Porsche by almost 5seconds over a 800meter track!

    The only thing that limits the 911 in the snow is ground clearance. Just like a front dive car the weight of the engine sits over the wheels that drive the car. With a set of Blizzacks or something similar in quality these cars are truly incredible in the snow…

    @helicandra On my very steep Pa driveway, I would punch it in reverse and treat the rear weight by putting it in front. All 911’s are worse then even a rear drive car in winter with the engine back of the rear wheels. Unless its a C4, I cant see how snows, even on all 4 wheels would help, then add in some hills or mountains and forgetaboutit.

    I’d hate to drive it in the winter because of all the damn salt they put on the roads.

    You’re obviously not a Porsche purist. That iconic shape is why we love them so much! When that changes, it’s the end of the world as far as I’m concerned.

    The reason people park their fancy sports cars in winter is to keep people driving pieces of junk from sliding into it!

    So this is what happens when you let your friends borrow your 911 Carrera 4S in the winter.
