"You can't understand a Porsche until you've experienced one!" -Just about every person who has driven a Porsche!

I remember the last time I got to drive a Porsche 911 was way back in 2008. At that time I silently wished to get behind the wheel of this fabulous car again, however the chance to do so only came recently at the Porsche India Drive Experience organized on the Yamuna Expressway, arguably the best stretch of road in India today. The bonus this time around was that I was not only driving the 911 Carrera S, but the Boxter S, Panamera diesel and the Cayenne diesel as well.  The downside however was the fact that each of us motorheads on this particular event would only get to drive a total of 50km in each vehicle, but that apart, the fact that we were getting to unleash these machines was good enough for a quick hands on tour of what Porsche is all about.

Needless to say, covering 50 kilometers in a Porsche, any Porsche, is just a blur of a moment. These machines are highly capable performance oriented pieces of work and they deliver on that level by the truckload. The quintessential 911 Carrera S and the Boxter S proved their mettle on the highway while offering speeds in between 240-260 km/h with ease. Having said that, while the 911 is brutally fast and out paces all the others by leaps and bounds, it is the Boxter S that really impressed me. Not only is it fast but it also offers a rather comfortable ride experience without losing out on handling. A brilliant machine and out of the lot, it is the car that I would recommend to someone looking for a car that’s hot, fast, stylish and extremely well engineered.
