If you want to live, drive a 2017 Porsche 911 across America.
Any excuse will do. Visit Grandma in Des Moines. Suck down some BBQ in KC. Take in Mt. Rushmore. Buy beer in Texarkana. It doesn’t matter. Just do it. And do it in a Porsche 911.
The moment of clarity will come in the golden glow of dusk somewhere secluded, just west of Salt Lake City, perhaps, in the wide open expanse of the west with backlit views of purple mountains and their majesty. You’ll click it down a few gears and enjoy the upper RPM pull of the Porsche’s new turbocharged engine. Your heart rate will jump along with its tach needle as the speed climbs well past the legal limit and soon, sanity.
You’ll do it again and again and again, and then you’ll flick on the seat heater and dial in some jazz on the Bluetooth audio.
And that’s when you’ll realize just how special the 911 is. A car with this much performance used to be called a race car. A car with this much comfort was once called a luxury car. Today it’s called the 2017 Porsche 911. And it’s one of the greatest sports cars to ever roam the earth.
