When Spring arrives in the Bay Area, there's no better way to celebrate the fresh air but in a Porsche.
Consider this blog as a depository for awesome Porsche drives/tours in and around the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California.

Draw an imaginary line across the center of California. Anchor one end off the Monterey Area/Santa Cruz mountains, on the Pacific coast. Run the line east over the Coast Range, through the Central Valley, and over the Sierra Nevada mountains. Tether the other end of the line at the Nevada border, on the fringe of the Great Basin Desert.

"Backroads of Northern California" covers the incomparable natural beauty, the myths and the history of the Golden State on the northern side of that line, while "Backroads of Southern California" does the honors for the lower half, from the San Joaquin Valley to the border with Mexico.

TOURS are what they sound like - someone leads a bunch of Porschephiles hither-and-yon for the express purpose of having them follow onto great Porsche roads, go interesting places and generally have a wonderful time driving their cars.

Porsche GT3 Rallye ...Perfect Sound Track

Ready for the weekend? Kill those remaining few work hours with this clip of Porsche GT3 rallye cars.

Porsche GT3 at the Sachsen Rallye photo credit:
Best of PORSHE GT3 in Germany, Spain, Belgium...RACING, Rallye!!! The cars just stick to the road...Check out the glowing exhausts at 8:40. Love the sound of that flat 6. No annoying music or announcers, just straight GT3 perfection.
Even if you don’t want to watch the clip, just run the 8 minutes and 44 seconds of action as background noise. It’s absolutely heavenly. Porsche...There is No Substitute.
