T911 on tour

Total 911 - - Views - Dear Sir, Mor­gan tye

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!
