Porsche 911 Carrera 4S winterThe Porsche 911 offers sportiness and everyday usability not just when the sky is blue and the sun is shining but also in winter driving conditions. There are numerous Porsche customers in regions in which winter is the rule during most of the year. The northernmost Porsche Centre in the world, for instance, is located in Tromso, Norway. In Norway alone, there are four more Porsche Centres; three Porsche Centres each are available to customers in Sweden and Finland. Many 911 customers enjoy driving in snow and ice also in Alpine countries like Switzerland. Vehicle sales have been growing there year after year. Alongside the Cayenne, the sports car icon is the most successful model in Switzerland. Last year alone, 656 vehicles were delivered to customers there.

The 911 with all wheel drive, in particular, is ideal for driving in winter. The Porsche Traction Management (PTM) translates the great driving-performance potential optimally in all weather conditions. Within a split second, the optimum power distribution between front and rear axle can be controlled via a multi-plate clutch. Depending on the driving situation, this means more driving stability, a more agile handling and traction even on slippery road surfaces. The all wheel drive offers even more driving fun on snow and icy roads because that’s where the premium on traction really shows its stuff. This makes the 911 the ideal vehicle for all seasons.
