Porsche Driving Days part 1: Gas station invasion

TrackandTuner tries to visit as much track events as possible at the Nordschleife. Since it’s not only our favorite track to visit but the atmosphere and beauty of the Eifel are worth a trip alone.

But there is always something going on at the Nordschleife as we discovered as we by coincidence came across the Porsche Driving Days.

Coming closer and closer to the Nordschleife it was quite clear that it was flooded with Porsches.

We saw dozens of 911 GT3 RS versions and even five GT2 RS versions. Not to mention all the other variations like the Boxer Spyder and the Carrera GTS.

We went to the main gate to check it out and it was rented out by Porsche. The entire parking lot was closed and a relax area was created for the Porsche driving days.

As we all know driving around all day on the Nordschleife will make sure that you need to fuel up a lot.

When we were driving by our favorite gas station as we saw a big group of Porsches filling up their pride and joy.

We went to check it out and soon the entire gas station was flooded with Porsches. Every color combination of the GT3 RS was available and almost all had fitted an aftermarket exhaust to make the best sounding Porsche sound even better.

But also the new 911 Turbo and GT2 RS where present in all the right colors and they also make a different but very intriguing sound as you hear the turbo rev up.

We couldn’t leave as the Porsches kept coming in, but also a 458 Italia and a Nissan GTR. The last one was also participating in the Porsche Driving Days which is a bit odd since the Nissan GTR presents itself as the Porsche beating rival. But it’s always good to see some friendly competition.

The only Porsche which wasn’t there was the Carrera GT unfortunately. But the others made up for it.

Enjoy the very different sounds between the normally aspirated GT3 RS boxer engines and the turbo charged 911 Turbo and GT2 RS models:
