Right curve, left curve and full speed again on the straightaway. The 911 GT3 masters the handling course without a hitch. Behind the steering wheel is sitting one of the 120 international journalists, whom Porsche has invited to a driving presentation at Aldenhoven in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Ten different 911 models were made available by the company there – among them two GT3 models – as well as two Boxster GTS and three Cayman GTS. The journalists could try out the sports cars to their heart’s content on the circuit, the handling course and the slope hill of the ATC test track. And they were able to experience the low centre of gravity, the agile handling and the safety of a Porsche for themselves. Special treat: a taxi drive in the 918 Spyder.

In addition, Porsche Tequipment gave proof of the everyday practicality of the new 911 models. Among other things, a luggage set and various roof brackets were put on display.
