I have an 04 C2 that i recently bought. I though i would use just in the summer, but i love this car. I planned on using my 04 BMW 330xi for the winter, but i think i want to drive the Porsche year round - so much more fun

Anyone have experience with driving a C2 in the snow - should i get snow tires?

I am also considering selling both cars and getting a C4

I drive my boxster s all year with the weight in the back the cars are very good, better than the bmw would be, snow tires are definately needed but not chains, a set of Dunlop Wintersport M3's are **** near perfect blend of snow traction and dry handling in the winter

of course ground clearance does become an issue :)

I drive my 996 C2 year round. I have not had any problems except damaging the plastic undertrays on frozen slush that exceeded my ground clearance. Yoy will need to buy snow tires. This is a must. My 18 inch summers are worthless just from freezing temps alone! I like the Blizzaks in 17 inch, but had had Pirellis which I judged to be marginal. They put a lot of sand on the roads around here so I also use the Tweeks clip on mud flaps to keep from sandblasting the rear quarters. I did manage to damage the clear coat on my front calipers last winter. The spoke clearance to the calipers is not great and when the abrasive laden snow/slush ifrom deep snow just took its toll. This will be my 6th winter in the 996.
