2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Long-Term Road Test

2013 Porsche 911: Next Stop, Midtown Manhattan?

March 22, 2013

2013 Porsche 911

Yesterday, Mike Magrath told you that we put snow tires on our 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet. He also said we won't be retracing the SLS AMG's path to Mount Rushmore.

Instead, I'm driving the route above. All the way to New York. I'm leaving this very morning (yes, Saturday) and I have to be in Midtown Manhattan by Tuesday afternoon for the start of the 2013 New York Auto Show press days.

It doesn't look like a very aggressive, northerly route considering that our 911 Cab now has those awesome snow tires, but rest assured that snow is in the forecast for every one of my stops: Colorado, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and yes, even New York itself.

It's a 2,886-mile drive and it promises to be an adventure. Follow me on Twitter @eriches as I regale you with the highs, lows and amusing moments of our 2013 Porsche 911's first cross-country road trip.
