Who wishes to spend a weekend in Atlanta at the Porsche Experience Center and drive some of Porsches best? I see the odd hand go up, OK.
I was one of those who were on the fence but if your lovely wife makes it a birthday present you can’t say no. And after thinking about it for a bit, I got excited.
Now the difficult part started. Which segments to pick? GT Academy, Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, 911 Turbo vs 911 GT3, 911 Turbo, The New 911 GT3, 2 vs 4, Mid vs Rear Engine, 911 Carrera GTS, 911 Targa 4 GTS, 911 Carrera S, 911 Carrera 4S, 911 Targa 4S, 911 Carrera T Master the Manual, 718 Boxster GTS, Macan Turbo, 718 Cayman GTS, Cayenne Off-Road.
Each segment is 1.5h – 2h long and ranges from $350 to $900 (US).
After looking at all the options, I went with Mid vs Rear Engine and Cayenne Off-Road.
Hotel room and fights had been booked and on Wednesday, Oct. 24 we left for Atlanta. The flights were all on time and later in the evening we picked up our Kia Soul rental and settled in our hotel room.
