Pretty fascinating equipment. Looks like it's working

Sent that link to my cousin who lives quite high in a snow infested Canadian mountain - brutal stuff. I could see him leaving those tracks at the foot of the mountain and grabbing them back for the way up during bad weather. This guy sometime gets stuck up there for a full week+ during winter days lol

Perfect kit X100000

Can you imagine these on a Porsche (LMAO) - One could build the ultimate outdoor series Cayenne - wrap it in Camo and give it snow tracks

I'm sure they serve a purpose for very special needs applications - BUT - Did you guys see the price tag ...yikes... 25Grand isn't cheap Track N Go | Track N Go

See someone's been thinking about this already

When possible move yourself and your Boxster to where there is better weather.

But then we'd have to give up hockey! That's not going to happen!!! Here, we get the best of both worlds - hockey in winter and summer fun in our Boxsters!

We have the Coyotes (haha not exactly the same) and plenty of ice rinks. I'm not a hockey fan likily due to growing up in southern California. Surfing was more my thing growing up. I guess it's all what you are used too.

This my winter "convertible" that use to get to my cottage, unstoppable in deep snow due to 18" wide tracks, and floats if I break through the ice ( I'm on an Island and have to cross the lake)
