    Photos New Pictures of Your Porsche in Snow!

    Alright folks, lets get out there and take new pictures of our Caymans/Boxsters in the snow. I want to see new pics from this winter. If you don't have snow, well, I feel sorry for you! Our Porsche look great in the white stuff.

    I'll kick things off. We just had our first snow of the season last night.

    It's snowing like crazy here in Nova Scotia. I have a lack of snow rubber however + A crazy amount of salt down...

    Re: New Pictures of Your Porsche in Snow!

    It didn't snow much in Cincinnati, but here are a couple of cell phone shots I took after pulling the new ride out of the garage for a minute.

    Also, I just cleaned it up a bit after driving it home in the rain earlier in the week, so no tearing around parking lots like hawc

    Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we don't get snow here, but I always love photos of cars in snow.

    I'm running Pirelli SottoZero OEM recommended tires. I gotta be honest, they're not great in snow. A little better than the other OEM recommend the ContiWinter Contacts which were a disaster. Both tires are more of a cold road tire, but not a snow tire. The only amazing snow tire I've ever used was the Nokkian Hakkapalitas but that wasn't an OEM reco I was just jamming them onto the rims. And they were scary soft and squirmy on dry roads.

    We got 8"+ here in Michigan last night. Attempted driving in to work, but I got less than a mile from my house, and I slid into deep snow and bottomed out. Had to be dug out, and I turned right back around and worked from home haha. First time that's happened with the Cayman on snow tires. Everyone was probably looking at me like "of course this jackass in a Porsche got stuck!" We all know they're capable, though.

    If there were a social services organization for Cars, they would probably take her away from me. Though I must say, it does surprisingly well in MinneSnowta winters,
