Porsches By the Hour, But Where To Drive Them?

The Stuttgart-Heilbronn-Karlsruhe triangle is ‘the natural habitat for pure driving machines’.

It’s all very well being able to hire a 911 by the hour from the Porsche Museum but where are you going to take it?

Stuttgart is in shouting distance of the Black Forest, the Jura Mountains and the Alps, but they are all too far away for a quick test drive.

There can’t be many out-of-towners who know the best – or even the good – roads in the area. We certainly don’t.

Happily, thanks to typical Porsche attention to detail, the package includes detailed route maps with driving times ranging from one to three hours.

By amazing coincidence, these roads have just received some of the highest praise imaginable.

Veteran journalist Georg Kacher’s recent first drive of the Cayman GT4 – which sadly isn’t available on Porsche Drive, yet – said, ‘The country roads in the Stuttgart-Heilbronn-Karlsruhe triangle are the natural habitat for pure driving machines.’

Thanks to the Museum being so close to the A81 autobahn drivers won’t waste too much time stuck in traffic, and they get the earliest opportunity to try out the legendary Porsche acceleration.

From there, Kacher’s country roads are within easy reach, see map below.

Prices range from €69 per hour for a Boxster or Cayman GTS, with a 100km allowance, up to €2,599 for a week and 1500km with any of a wide range of 911s, including the Targa.

There’s also a long weekend option – Friday afternoon to Monday morning – with a 750km allowance starting at €499.

Beware the excess charges however. A lost key costs €2,500. Every extra kilometre is charged at €1, or €2.50 per litre to refill the tank. Cars skidded into ditches cost €3.50 per km to recover.
