Walter Röhrl Tests Porsche Cayenne GTS And Turbo S On Ice: Video
Walter Rohrl driving on ice, now that’s a sight to behold! We’ve seen him at it in cars such as the Fiat 131 Abarth, Lancia 037 Rally, and the Audi Sport Quattro during his glory World Rally Championship days, but what happens when the German ace attempts similar stunts in the current Porsche Cayenne? Well, it’s equally spectacular, especially since Rohrl is now 67 years old. Yep, he’s 67 and still driving fast cars for a living. And I bet we won’t see him in a Toyota Corolla anytime soon, if you get my drift.
Speaking of drifts, that’s exactly what you’re going to see in Porsche’s new video above, which showcases the sportiness and stability of both the Cayenne GTS and the Cayenne Turbo S. And snow, there’s a lot of snow, and even a few portions of ice. But despite the harsh conditions, both Cayenne’s seem to handle the try-outs brilliantly. Heck, if I didn’t know any better I’d say the FIA changed WRC regulations to allow SUVs and that Rohrl is preparing for a comeback after nearly three decades. Unfortunately, Walter has better things to do (like raise grandchildren) than teach Sebastien Ogier a thing or two about rallying, so you’ll just have to settle for these two Cayennes being put through their paces in the snow.
Don’t worry though, Rohlr hasn’t changed a bit. He’s driving like it’s 1980 all over again.
