Took mine out yesterday 24*F and drove 15 miles on summer tires through a mini snow storm to get my winter tires installed, then drove another 50 miles during the day.
Just some nice comfy cruising, no drama.

and a cleaner shot

Slippery but still very mangeable in 3-4'' of snow

I'm proud that you drive in the winter. A question I have is, does the front spoiler take a beating driving in high snow? Love to hear your thoughts on this.

Never had an issue with mine. One of the great things about the Turbo’s design is the front bumper is angled to provide a lot of clearance.

No problem with the front spoiler, I leave it retracted and it stays out of the tough stuff.
Car has full Expell clear wrap, Mich Alpin PA4 winter tires 245 / 295 and Weathertech carpets, so I can enjoy driving it whenever I feel the urge to let those turbos breathe the cold air.
Practicing drifting techniques in an empty parking lot at night can be a lot of fun too !

Went to pick up car 11/21 but it had a loud annoying squeak from the right rear suspension that is still being addressed in the service department. I guess what's another week after 3 months of waiting. Here is a pic next to it's gt brother.

Great looking car. Hope they figure out the noise very easily. Love the GT as well. They make quite a pair.

I've got Michelin Alpin's on my turbo s and a full car bra and it's a complete beast in pretty much any weather short of a major ice storm (no car is good in that ha)
