Hey guys. I'm new to the form but don't own a Porsche yet. I'm looking to purchase a 2001 996 Twin Turbo as my daily driver.
Just had a few questions regarding driving Porsches in winter. We get quite a bit of snow in Alberta, is the 4 wheel drive able to handle it? Ofcourse, i would have winter tires in winter.
Currently I have a 2001 BMW 530i sport rear wheel drive and it runs fine all winter with winter tires, so my guess would be the Porsche would be better. The Porsche is low, but so is the BMW so ground clearance i think would be similar.
Howmany people run the 996's in winter?
Also, what are some common problems to watch out for in these cars? I'm still in the process of reviewing them.
