Come Play On The Porsche Test Track
Filed in Dream Trips, Travel Tips
It’s no secret that German cars are some of the best vehicles in the world. I may seem biased because I’m German, but you can ask anyone. ;-)
Combining speed, elegance, and the latest innovations from German engineering geniuses, driving a German car is a real pleasure.
You can take that pleasure to the next level by making a trip to one of the test tracks in Germany. For those who love speed, the Porsche test track is a must-visit destination. The company builds nearly 200 cars each year for premium racing events, and their test track is where the rubber meets the road–literally!
Located in Leipzig, the test track event package includes a tour of the factory grounds and the chance to take the latest models out for a spin with a professional co-pilot. The on-road track is FIA certified, and there is an off-road track experience available as well, complete with hills, canals, and mud pits.
Currently, the event package features the Cayenne, Boxster, Cayman, 911, 911 Turbo or Panamera models for test driving on-road, and the Cayenne for driving the off-road track. The Panamera isn’t available in the North American market, so if you’re interested you have to come and see it in its native environment.
The co-pilots come from the BMW Driver Training facilities in Munich, so you are in good hands for coaching as you take the wheel.
Pushing the top speeds, doing spins, and shalom racing are all encouraged. You can even do skid pad slides and re-enact driving stunts seen in popular commercials.
The overall cost of the experience is less that you might imagine for hours on a top track and coaching from world class drivers. Four hours with some of the best cars in the world will cost between €650 and €940 (approximately between US$910 and US$1,316), with expansion packages available and group events also on offer.
It will certainly be a one-in-a-lifetime experience — don’t you think? :-)

Yes it would be a one-in-a-lifetime experience, and I would love to do it.
I wish we had more brands of German cars for sale here in the U.S., as the next car I purchase will definitely be a German make. I can’t understand why Opels are not on the market here.
Forget about Opelz (= General Motors). ;-)
