Walter Röhrl’s courage
Rally sport is for real daredevils, taking every corner in spectacular fashion. Not an option for efficient driver Walter Röhrl. His motto: meticulous preparation, because that’s how he could develop trust in himself – and, in turn, courage. That’s how he was able to dominate the famous Arganil rally in fog 4.59 minutes faster than the other drivers and, incidentally, rally sport in general for more than 25 years.
The Porsche 911 has also mirrored fashion over the generations. A broad range of colours have constantly distinguished it. Examples from different decades include Bahama Yellow, Viper Green, Guards Red and Rubystar. Brave colours that also have their equivalent today, for example, the electrifying Miami Blue. A touch of colour on the asphalt and a vibrant counterpoint in every garage.
The courage to do something new
In 1976, the Porsche 928 broke all Porsche’s dogmas with its front engine and arranging the transmission at the rear axle. This principle, called transaxle, spread the weight of the vehicle almost ideally with a spacious interior and a lot of space for luggage. This is how the unbelievable GT sport range came into being alongside the 911. A brave step, and one that many Porsche fans valued highly. An era that ended with the 968 in 1995.
The courage to escape everything for a while
Driving through the Scottish Highlands in a Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid. Past the walls of Ardvreck Castle, the sports saloon easily ascends Applecross Pass, leading its passengers out of the solitary heights and to the wild, romantic banks of Loch Leathan, proving that you should sometimes leave your everyday life behind you and have the courage to escape for a while. Because it’s the experiences in life that make it worth living.
