Sliding sideways on a snowy test course while listening to Strauss. It’s something many a sophisticated Porschephile imagines themselves doing, but often, they either lack the hardware, the setting, or the skills to make it happen. Well, vicarious experience is the second-best solution here, and thanks to a classic soundtrack, a beautiful 911, some stellar camera work, and the scenery to make anyone swoon, this video that can help fulfill that fantasy.
Considering the famous soundtrack playing in the background, it’s only fitting that the 911 here is doused in Miami Blue. Softened by the snow-swept surroundings, the typically-bright color blends well with the environment, but still cuts through to highlight the grace, rhythm, and precision of drifting. With the way the 911’s wide hips dance, slither, and sway to the “Blue Danube,” you might wonder if this talented driver moonlights as a conductor for some alpine orchestra.
Frankly, it makes me want to rifle through my grandfather’s CD collection, drive to the mountains, and disable traction control.
