How to enjoy your Porsche

Enjoy Your Porsche

This may sound like a ridiculous topic for an article, but bear with me. There are many Porsche owners and enthusiasts around the world and many of their Porsches stay locked away in their garages and emerge only on sunny days and holidays. While I understand it's important to look after your Porsche, if your not too careful you run the risk of not getting the most enjoyment out of your Porsche. I'm not suggesting for one minute that you submit your Porsche to torture by driving it in hurricanes and hale storms, but there's an abundance of things you might consider getting involved in which will help you get the most enjoyment from your Porsche.


  • Track days. Track days are tremendous fun. They allow you to really enjoy the speed and handling that every Porsche has to offer, and just waiting for you to allow it to strut it's stuff.
  • Club drives. Many Porsche clubs offer the opportunity to get together and enjoy some group driving. Nothing better than driving en mass to the beach on a summers day and having some fish and chips on the beach before the return run home again.
  • Car Festivals. There are car festivals held the world over. Apart from the opportunity to drive your Porsche to the event, they also offer the opportunity to show off your pride and joy to other enthusiasts and generally chat amongst like mined individuals.

  • Remember also, enjoyment doesn't just come from driving your Porsche. There is a huge community that has evolved around the Porsche brand.


  • Porsche Clubs. Meeting fellow owners is just as much fun as driving. There are plenty of Porsche clubs to get involved with including both the official Porsche club and plenty of independent clubs.
  • Forums and community websites. There are plenty of web based communities that give you not just the opportunity to share your enthusiasm for the Porsche brand, but also share experiences and knowledge. Of course Channel P101tv is a great community site that allows members to share video, pictures, read articles and guides and access Porsche resources, information and databases.

Join the debate and let us know in the comments below how you enjoy your Porsche.

You quickly forget how much you enjoy your Porsche.  I can get mine out of the garage at the moment as I have some building work going on in front of it.  I miss my blasts in my 911 so much! crying

Totally agree with the sentiment of the article Pete.  Driving your Porsche is a must!  I also agree that joining in with the wider Porsche community, events, meets, drives etc makes for the perfect combinmation to get the most out of your Porsche.

I spent yesterday hooning around the south coast with 13 other Porsche 911 owners. Amazing fun especially blasting through tunnels enjoying the sound of the flat six engine.

Here's a little video of a pitstop at Beachyhead

Great idea for an article. There are loads of people who hide their Porsches away and don't get the most fun out them.

Totally agree. Nice to keep a clean car, better to get it coated in flies, smelling of hot oil and just below vapour point petrol. Well that was me on the way home from Goodwood today.

I went to the Goodwood supercar Sunday today. They were celebrating 50 years of the 911. A fanatastic day out all round. Great down to the circuit and then hours of wandering around admiring the Porsches and chatting. Definitely a great way to enjoy your Porsche.

Spot on Pete. Too many Porsches sit idle in their garages and arn't out there getting stuck into the Porsche community. Your right in that enjoying your Porsche is wider than just driving it. The communities are fun too!
