    Snow

    How does the 987 or 986 fare in the snow as in the UK there is quite a bit now. Getting my Boxster in early April and was just wondering how it faired?

    Re: Snow

    Mine (986-2003) with winter tires works just fine - actually more stabil than my FWD Peugeot 307. The PSM works like a charm.
    I'm not sure it would work well as a plow or off-road, tho

    Re: Snow

    Still to try my Mini Cooper S today in the snow which should be eventful!

    Re: Snow

    'Interesting' is the politest way I can put it. 'Cos we don't have enough really cold weather to swap to winter tyres here in the UK we struggle on with the normal ones.

    Had fun trying to get my old 986 up a very slight incline on an infrequently used road in very light snow, but had a real blast handbraking it around and acting like a general hooligan in an empty car park.

    I'd take the Mini in those conditions - roof down in the Cooper Cab today - snow and all!

    Re: Snow

    Without winter tires....DON'T even try it.
    Yesterday I witnessed how a braking 997 Carrera S with summer tires slipped on a snow covered surface for at least one car length. And this car was farely doing 5(!) kph.
    We all held our breath because it was a new car delivered and we were anxious that he (the driver) hits the window of the building.

    Without winter tires....FORGET it.

    My 997 Carrera S with 19'' winter tires (235s front and huge 295s rear) performs VERY well on snow, I'm actually surprised HOW well it performs.

    Re: Snow

    I would avoid it.. especially if its a Tiptronic... real bad combo..
