    Winter DE in the Swiss Alps

    I recently attended a Winter DE, organized by the Swiss Porsche Import AMAG, near St. Moritz in the beautiful Engadin in the Swiss Alps.

    The event started at a fine hotel in the evening with an hour of theorie, followed by a great dinner. The following morning, we went to the 40'000m2 ice field they had prepared. The good thing: We didn't have to drive our own car. They had almost the whole range there (997, 997S, 987, 987S, Cayenne V6/S/TT, 996C4S, etc) for us. After some praticing of standard situations (braking, dodging obstacles), they set up a course which we had to drive while constantly forcing the car into over-/understeering and catching it again. It was a great fun and at the same a good opportunity to improve one's car handling abilties.

    Re: Winter DE in the Swiss Alps

    It looks like great fun Matt! Thanks for sharing.

    How did the Cayenne do on the ice compared to the other Porsches? Did the 4 wheel drive and fancy electronics of the Cayenne prove to be an advantage?

    awesome pictures

    Re: Winter DE in the Swiss Alps

    Hi Gary,

    The Cayenne did great. With PSM on, it was the easiest to control whereas the Boxster turned out to be the hardest. So yes, the electronic aids did help a lot. However, we turned off PSM most of the time which sort of leveled the field (Cayenne still the "easiest", but with the highest inclination to understeer).

    Re: Winter DE near Katschberg, Austria

    Last but not least for Cayenne Driver:


    As a short information: The Cayennes were the cars with the best traction. The new Boxster is much better to handle as a Boxster 550 Spyder Edition. The Boxster was for me the car with
    the most fun in this training.
