T911 on tour
Reading 964 owner Gina’s columns this year,
I can’t help but notice she’s wracked up some serious miles in air-cooled Porsches in 2017, with trips to Ireland and the Alps of particular interest. I also recall a trip to Norway last year.
Reading such articles has prompted me to take the plunge and take my 993 Carrera on tour next year. It’s a Cabriolet so is ideally built for touring, but I’ve been reticent to take it outside of the UK in the six years I’ve owned it. However, I’m now lead to believe I’ve been missing out all along, and am determined to take my 993 Carrera – and Total
911 magazine – on tour next year. Perhaps you kind souls at Total 911 might be able to offer some advice on where to go for my first trip? I don’t mind embarking on an excursion with a friend or as part of a larger group.
Great to hear you’ll be taking your 911 on an adventure in 2017. You may have found our
‘top ten tours for 2018’ article in issue 160 of use, which contained a mixture of events using either your own 911, or renting one. of course, the advantage to driving a rented 911 is you have little to worry about in terms of insurance or reliability, though the caveat is those moments on tour are always much more special in your own neunelfer.
If you don’t want to venture too far from the UK in your own 911 there’s still plenty on offer: why not try the Isle of Man or republic of Ireland? Both offer twisty roads with plenty of good views, with numerous landmarks to stopoff to investigate if you’d like to take things at a slower pace. a good european road trip doesn’t always have to contain the alps!
