Touring the Alps with Porsche

Everyone knows that a Porsche can hold its own on the race track, but how about on a long-distance journey? A group of journalists have been exploring the answer to this question in detail on a three-day road trip through the Swiss Alps.

Demanding winding roads and picturesque Alpine passes: On their road trip from Stuttgart to Turin, a group of Russian journalists has been testing the sportiness as well as the everyday suitability of the Panamera and Cayenne models. Starting in Porsche's homeland Stuttgart, the journalists drove to the idyllic village of Andermatt in the heart of Switzerland before continuing the test drive through the Alps into Northern Italy.

The participants covered a total of 1600 kilometres during the trip organised by Porsche Russia, which gave them the chance to experience the comfort as well as the cornering dynamics of the four-door models in every sense. As the images show, the road trip turned out to be an especially varied experience:
