Looks like a blast !
Wish we had enough snow here to make this like an AutoX event.
Well, maybe I don't wish for that much snow...

Less than. I'm east of Van. Who put this on? Wasn't a PCA event?

In Europe, 911's are used all year around too, they're designed for all conditions.

Unless you're saving your car for the museum or someone else, get out and enjoy it!
That's not snow, that's frost! LOL

I'd love to, but mine has never seen snow (or much rain for that matter). As the chief mechanic in my household, I can say it's real nice to remove fasteners without effort, so I'm going to continue to not run it in the snow.

Default My C4S on Sotozeros

Nice morning.
I know I'm driving on the right and the left looks in better condition but the semi's were a but too aggressive this morning.
(Although one 991 went by pretty quickly...)
As long as I kept the car connected, driving was fine.
It didn't like any neutral moments.
I'm sure my Forrester would have been slipping around as well.
Very nice drive.
