Porsche world road show usa

Well getting up at 5am and hustling up to Monticello was worth the trip. Got to drive a Hybrid and S Cayenne on an brakingslalom type course. Acceleration in Hybrid unreal.

Then went to new Boxster S PDK on a short track "Autocross" event. The damn thing is like a rocket ship compared to my '02 2.7 3.4 315hp with PDK. I wish I could afford one. One woman in the group has a new Boxster S on order and should get it the end of this month. All the grins were big after getting out of the cars.

Last event was driving first a Carrera S PDK and Panamerica PDK at speed following an instructors line. Freakin' fast 400 hp S was unbelievable and stuck like glue. Up to 114 at end of back straight. Was surprised how fast the big 4 door was and how it gripped the road. Didn't have trouble keeping up with the Carrera but this was a short track.

All in all a great experience. This event is starting here in NY and will be showing up at tracks all across the country. They had a photographer taking loads of pics and you can visit the event at the following url"

I will attempt to post a few pics. I didn't see anybody I knew there but Gundo was supposed to be running in the 11am group. First will be the new Boxster and second the classroom at Monticello.

Imagine it with 320 a tad lighter and PDK, I've been trying to tell you guys it's so fast you have to concentrate to be legal or submit to the cruise control.

Road Show will be coming to L.A. so watch for it or better yet get in on it if it is not too late.
