Anyone who has ever been to Fort Lauderdale in the evening has likely noticed the constant parade of Italian sports cars up and down the beach front strip. It seems like most of the Lamborghinis ever built have somehow ended up on the Gulf coast. Toronto is like that too, except that the car of choice is the Porsche 911.
A number of years ago, while I was managing the service department of a now defunct Nissan dealership which was situated on the main road that led to Toronto’s north/south highway link. Porsche 911s of all manner were a common sight. Who even knew that so many GT2 and GT3 models existed, let alone were driven daily in city traffic.
When Winter blasted the city core, it almost seemed as if the 911 population grew, as owners chose to drive their sports car through the deep snow rather than their SUV. It might not seem logical, until you experience Germany’s finest in the white stuff.
Over the past two weeks, I had the pleasure of experiencing the 2015 911 Turbo S and the 911 Targa 4. During that time, I was fortunate to enjoy both during southern Ontario’s first snow storm of the season. Over the next couple of days, I will share my thoughts on both, including the one I liked the most. You might be surprised.
