A Porsche 911 Carrera 4 is a great car in the snow

I’ve heard that prices of used 4x4s are on the up in the UK as people clamour to get a car that they hope will enable them to conquer the snow.
However, with a bit of lateral thinking, you can have a great sports car that will also perform in the snow. Let’s face it, conventional 4x4s are designed for off-roading and, as such, have massive ground clearance which is of little help if you’re just trying to negotiate your local backroads.
So why not treat yourself to a Porsche 911? Opt for a four-wheel drive Carrera 4 and you’ll have a car that’s usable all year round and surprisingly good in the snow and ice. Indeed, I’ve been contacted by several Carrera 4 owners saying how their cars have got them out of a fix during the recent cold spell.
