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 993 - "Are you listening?"

Classic 1994 marketing video for the Porsche 911 (993 Series) television commercial....Great production if I may add. This was many years ago of course. Sweet promo piece...Patrick Stewart's voice takes you back to the Porsche commercials for the 993, includes commentary by Hurely Haywood...This one's definitely a keeper.

The voice that speaks to you, knows you better than any other. The voice that knows what makes you happy. The voice knows what makes you sad. The voice that knows.
There is a place not to far away, where people heard the voice and listen, it said to them, build something. Build something pure. Build something that isn't temporary, disposable, build something to inspire all those that experience it. Build a monument. ..........
"...looking for things that weren't created, to be something to everyone... but everything to someone...".
That sentence says a lot...
Music is by Deep Forest
 Porsche - "Are You Listening?"
Your heart is still speaking all you have to do is listen.

Like everything, LIFE is a journey. A journey that begins with a beat of a heart. And the voice that comes with it...the voice that we  haven't yet been conditioned to ignore, so we listen to what it tells us. We follow where it leads us, we trust it, were children...we are happy, but somewhere between then and now, we lose touch with the voice, no matter how closely it whispers, or how loud it cry's.

Instead are ears are tuned to other things, like the stock reports, 6 o'clock news, then one day, putting the forks in the dishwasher or mowing the lawn, we happened to catch the glimpse of joy in our children's faces....and we REMEMBER, what it felt like. 
Remember ....what it felt like to listen to that voice in our hearts...and go with it. Then suddenly out of nowhere this SPARK of wisdom occurs. It becomes very clear. It's NOT to late. Your heart's still speaking. All you have to do is LISTEN.
