Last year our local Porsche dealer got the factory to lend them 27 vehicles that get shipped around the world so Porsche owners and prospective buyers can experience the different sensations each variation the factory has to offer.
The examples included Cayennes, Boxsters, Caymans, all the combinations of the Carrera (2, 4, S, Targa and Cabrio), a few Turbos, and even a GT2. The transmission variations included Manual, Tiptronic and PDK examples so Porsche friends could experience the different feel of the transmissions offered.
They also brought in 6 Porsche Factory Drivers/Instructors and 6 drivers from the Central American race circuit to show us how things are done on "another driving level".
I was among the 120 or so lucky guests invited for three days of road and track driving day that would change our expectations of what a P-Car can do in the right hands.
After trying out the Coupes and Cabriolets on open roads and putting the Cayennes through a grueling off road circuit with extreme conditions we received instructions from the experts and set off to drive the Boxsters and Caymans through a Slalom course.
Once this was done, each of the guests was able to try three different models back to back on the track so we could feel how each car handled, first as passengers with an instructor driving and later behind the wheel.
Finally, at the end of the day, the instructors put us in the passenger seats and showed us why the are called "professionals", driving each car to its limits and sometimes exceeding those limits to great satisfaction of the official Michellin tire dealer who stocked the tires for the three days of the Porsche World Roadshow.
This was my first video editing experience, I hope you enjoy it. I had a great time driving, filming and putting this video together for my track buddies of that great "Porsche World Roadshow" day.
