But the Barber Motorsports Park isn't all about road coursing - there are two off-road tracks, located in the woods within the complex. "It was amazing that it could do what it could off-road," says Winslow, while recalling his woodland experiences with the Cayenne. "I had to ask the guys who had more experience with vehicles in an off-road environment if there was anything comparable to the Cayenne off-road. They said it was as capable as anything from Land Rover, which to me, says quite a bit, given Land Rover's history."

"There were things that looked impossible to me, but you were sitting behind the wheel and the instructor said 'do it', and you did it and the Cayenne did the task without any trouble." According to Winslow, "The object of off-roading is to go as slow as possible and as fast as necessary - we'd put it in 'reduction gear' while going downhill; and we're talking about some steep grades- it would just creep down the hill, completely stable and steady. No need to put your foot on the brake - it was able to handle the situation perfectly."

I was excited to hear more about the Turbo Cayenne, so I asked Howard about the motor and the driving experience as it related to the Turbo. "There's zero turbo lag - power is precise and spot on. But other than the difference in acceleration, which is significant, there's no difference between the S-model and the Turbo. None."

Howard had nothing but positive comments for PCNA and their hospitality. "They put us in a great hotel - at least a 4-star hotel, and the food was amazing. Porsche always does a great job when it comes to functions like this - it's a real pleasure to attend Porsche events."
