SO YOU FINALLY GOT THAT PORSCHE

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.

Walter Rohrl returns to Pikes Peak - BBC Top Gear

Walter Rohrl returns to Pikes Peak - BBC Top Gear
Walter Rohrl will once again stepping into his 600hp, 1000kg Audi Sport quattro S1 and spanking it up Pikes Peak.
It's 25 years since the man navigated his way (mostly sideways) through 156 turns to the 4,301 metre summit of the legendary American course. In 1987 the two-time rally world champ - and his melon-sized testes - got up the mountain in a record breaking time of 10:47:85. And back then there were no guardrails and it was done on a loose sand and gravel surface.
