Dream “Car”

February 26th, 2015

You ever have one of those days? You know, the one where your brain is taking you places you didn’t know existed? I had one of those mornings a few weeks ago where I felt so free and capable of thinking so deeply and profoundly. I can’t even remember the last time I felt that way. It was absolutely glorious.

Where am I going with this? A little patience, friend, we’re getting there. Ever since our amazing ski trip to Ischgl, Austria, I’ve been completely obsessed with on-slope transportation, particularly snow cats. In fact, I was so obsessed, I actually purchased a Pisten Bully toy snow cat. I’m not even ashamed to admit it, I think it’s badass.

Around that same time, I saw an article on Autoblog about the Nissan Juke Nismo RSnow, which started out as a Nissan Juke RS, but instead of wheels and tires it was outfitted with a Dominator Track System (all terrain tank-like treads). The article mentioned that it was built for an ice driving event in Finland and showed a video of the Juke cruising through the snow with ease.

That got me thinking, what other kind of all-wheel drive vehicles could a track system be added onto to create the perfect unstoppable skimobile?

Then it hit me.

What is my dream car? A Porsche 911 Turbo…which has all wheel drive!!!

It was time to do a photo search to get the biggest photo of a Nissan Juke RSnow I could find as well as finding a 911 photo taken at a similar angle. This is the final result, a vehicle I would be proud to drive around Vermont, Utah or Colorado on those fresh pow days when others are stuck in ditches. Behold, the Porsche 911 TurbSNOW (OK, we may need a better name…and a ski rack).
