Is there any higher form of cheap entertainment than an empty parking lot the morning after it snows? In my formative years we always preferred our local baseball park's lots after a snowfall. It was guaranteed to be empty in the dead of winter, and was seldom cleared quickly. I wouldn't be shocked to find that scars dug by my Golf's studded …Continue to the full article

Frozen Lake Running With The Supercharged Kelly Moss Porsche Safari 4
You may have seen this build featured on the Hoonigan YouTube Channel a couple of weeks ago, but Larry Chen and Will Roegge have now released a longer version with more Porsche-focussed shenanigans.

Winter Tires For Your Porsche: They’re Not Just For Snow and Ice Anymore
Parting with summer tires is a challenge every year. I try to put off swapping from my summer rubber 'til the last possible moment.

Ice Drifting A Porsche 918 Spyder
I'm not sure I would have the cojones to do what this guy is doing in the video below. Granted it's a closed course in a controlled environment. However, that "controlled" environment is still an ice-track in the freezing cold temperatures of Finland. And, if I remember correctly, while carbon fiber itself doesn't get brittle in cold, the panels …Continue to the full article
Why Would You Drift A Porsche Panamera S E-hybrid On Ice?
That's the question we asked ourselves when we saw the video below. Then it hit us. You do it because you can! Let's face it, if you have the opportunity to take a Panamera (or any Porsche for that matter) out on the ice-covered track of Camp4 Canada you would do the same thing. The biggest difference is you're not Porsche factory driver Romain …Continue to the full article
