    Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

    Oh the weather outside is frightful
    But the fire is so delightful
    And since we've no place to go
    Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

    ..,

    Re: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

    I imagine these days you're driving with a similar sound to the PSE for the 997, as temperature is sooo low overthere, the engine sound has to be similar when ignitioning each time in the garage. Porsche says to not make important accelerations in cold, but we all do it!!(At least me)hehe

    BTW, your 997S in the snow looks stunning!!!, congratulations again!

    Re: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

    Very nice shots but Sergini you need to let us know when your album comes out .

    Re: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

    Swabish Alps use to always nail me with snow around this time of the year without warning. I feel your pain.

    Re: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

    Oh sergeni- you made my day! A wonderful song and even better car. All my previous Porsches were fair-weather cars but not this Carrera S. I enjoy it too much to put it away in bad weather. I'm actually driving it in the rain and now I'll follow you in the snow. The ultimate luxury is not having a "garage queen" for nice weekends but an incredible sports car to drive whenever you want.

    Re: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

    Sorry guys. Nice try. Nothing is more depressing than these pictures. The most horrific part about them is what you can't see: the pissibility that they will use salt on those roads.

    Oh, the nice clumps of dirty snow melting on your floor matts: any photos of that?

    We have the same weather for the past two days now over here in Bavaria too. I hate it. I'm happy I put winter tires on my Cayenne Turbo in time, there is no better winter car. As soon as we get a little bit more snow, I'll post a detailled report about the Cayenne Turbo's winter capabilities. Our co-editor CR just returned from a business trip yesterday in a Cayenne S loaner. The Autobahn was fully covered with snow (middle Germany) and almost all cars were stuck and only some trucks were driving on the right, the left lane was completely free but covered with snow. His driver drove in the Cayenne S at around 100(!) kph without a problem and passed all trucks and of course all cars...on SNOW. He never really liked the Cayenne because of high fuel consumption but he told me on the phone that he got second thoughts now.

    Re: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

    What type of tires were on that Cayenne S loaner?

    Re: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

    Great Serginisnowking!!!

    But you never talk about our friends "Fermocist and his baby"

    Can't wait to see other snow pics..

    ciao

    Winter tires of course.
    I also had to drive yesterday more than 150 km while it was snowing. Streets were pretty much cleaned up but they were still covered with a thin mix of snow and ice. The Pirelli Scorpion N0 tires performed pretty well, I just had a little tail dancing in a sharp curve at around 90 kph but the truck remained stable.

    The Cayenne is an incredible winter vehicle, I didn't believe CF (one of our moderators from Sweden who owns a Cayenne Turbo) when he told me that I'm gonna be very pleased in winter time. He was right. And even during rain, probably due to it's weight, the Cayenne feels rock solid, like a tank.

    Holminator,.....

    What are you talking about?

    Didn't you know that driving in the snow is the BEST? Learning how to keep a car on the road in VERY slippery conditions is one of the most exciting experiences I keep having. Mind you, I did have a lot of practice cause I grew up in the mountains and we kept going to empty parking lots in winter, letting 'the pig out' as we say in Schiizertütsch.

    I'm not claiming to be an expert, but by now, I think I can handle my car quite well in snowy and generally slippery conditions.

    Check out some of these pictures from a Porsche DE in Switzerland a few years back. Fun in the snow

    I can tell ya. We had an absolute BLAST.

    WHAT is all that WHITE STUFF around your car????

    65 sunny.

    Re: WHAT is all that WHITE STUFF around your car????

    Thanks guys ,
    yesterday in my home was raining (8*C),but I made a lot ok km with my new baby ...and in a mountain pass my car descovered the snow .
    During rainly days 997S is hard to drive with sport crono pack in funtion (-20+ lsd) ...but it's funny !! this is the funniest car i ever drove !

    RC ...my cayenne winther tires (20') are coming next week I hope...during wither bad time I prefer that "truck" to my 997!

    Re: WHAT is all that WHITE STUFF around your car????

    Don't ever use chrono sport on snow or rain, you'll regret it. I already had my lesson.
    I'm sorry the weather is that bad and you can't use your car on dry and warm weather. Above 12*C, this is where the fun begins.

    Funny car? How come?

    Re: WHAT is all that WHITE STUFF around your car????

    RC, good to know about not using sport mode in the snow. I may be heading up to the mountains this weekend and it's been snowing, although the roads shouldn't be too bad.

    I used to have a 993 C4S that was decent on snow and ice:



    Not all of my Porsche-in-the-snow experiences have been so good:
