The Porsche World Expedition, a journey like no other, is underway. The expedition spans six continents, lasts 80 days, and allows participants to explore the world from the driver’s seat of the new Porsche Cayenne S. The expedition kicked off in Australia on May 11 with a group of 20 participants setting out to explore the Outback. This once-in-a-lifetime journey begins at Australia’s east coast and ventures across the outback to Perth.
The Porsche Cayenne S is prepared to handle such an adventure: it comes equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers a whopping 440 horsepower. It also comes with the Porsche Traction Management active all-wheel drive system, allowing you to feel confident and in control as you traverse any terrain. This system will be particularly useful while driving in the Australian Outback, as participants traverse desert landscapes and dirt roads, driving through the Simpson Desert, the Red Center, and the Great Central Road to Perth.
The Porsche World Expedition will explore Africa, Europe, South East Asia, Central America, and South America. With the power and capability of the Porsche Cayenne S, participants will experience the world like never before, all while sitting within a luxurious, comfortable, and smart interior.
The Porsche Cayenne S is just one of the many powerful and prestigious Porsches in stock at Gossett VW Porsche. Schedule your test drive and you will understand why Porsche is the first name in high-performance luxury automotive.
Summer is almost here, and for many of us, that means setting out on a road trip with the family. Before you take to the road, you will want to prepare your Porsche to meet the demands of driving for long hours in hot weather. Here are a few tips on how to prepare your luxury vehicle for summer road trips.
- Perform simple maintenance checks on your vehicle: Before packing up your vehicle and setting out, you will want to check your car’s oil and fluid levels, including power steering fluid, windshield wiper fluid, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and coolant. You should also check your tires and make sure they’re appropriately inflated and have adequate tread depth, as good tires help keep you confident, in control, and safe while on the go.
- Check your car’s air conditioning system: Nothing is worse than being stuck in a stuffy, hot vehicle for long hours, so you will want to thoroughly check your car’s air conditioning system before setting out.
- Clean out the interior, pack charging cords, and have music/entertainment options on hand: You will want to clean out your car’s interior and make sure you have all the charging cords to keep everyone’s devices charged up while on the road. You should also think about what entertainment options you will want to be available to you while on the trip, including downloading your favorite music playlists, podcasts, and your family’s favorite movies if you have a rear seat entertainment system.
There are few feelings better than hitting the open road in the summertime, particularly when you do so at the wheel of a Porsche or Volkswagen vehicle. To set yourself up for maximum summer fun, stop into Gossett VW Porsche and set up your test drive.
