    Default Porsche Cayman as a daily drive during winter

    Porsche Cayman as a daily drive during winter

    Anyone did that before ?

    I get mixed opinions about this.

    - I would put some narrower Nokian Haka 9 with studs.
    - Rust warranty on it is 12 years, I don't care too much about the price or rust.

    I just am not sure about the driving, in snow, ice, even with great tire, how does it feel ? It's propulsion. and low :-)

    Any comment ?

    Thanks guys

    You will be fine with the rust and driving it during the winter but the front bumper and undertrays will take a beating for sure.

    AFAIK, all Porsche vehicles are constructed from galvanized steel. Ditto for Audi (and possibly also VW)

    Audi's and VW of that vintage rot out like an 80s Toyota. Porsche has a few extra steps in corrosion prevention. Anyways I'd be asking these questions on Rennlist
