Prepare to be jealous. Last September we told you about Porsche’s Camp4 and Camp4S driving schools that take place about an hour north of Montreal. Besides getting to sample a variety of different Porsche models, Camp4 and Camp4S are also schools designed to improve your winter driving skills.
Automobile Magazine went up to Canada to participate in Camp4 for no other reason but to “bash around other people’s expensive toys…[and] see how the new  4S performs.”
According to the magazine the 911 Carrera 4S handled Camp4 quite well impressing them with its “ability to maximize grip” with a demeanor that is “less skewed to AWD understeer and more like a sled with an afterburner. It pops out of corners with aplomb.”
To read about the magazine’s entire experience at Camp4 head over to automobilemag.com, where close to 50 pictures from Camp4 have been posted. Be sure to sign up for next year’s event so you don’t have to look back in anger again.
Stop by South Centre Porsche to get a head start on getting into next year’s Camp4 and Camp4S events or any other Porsche Driving Schools you’d like to attend.

Twenty Porsches, two handling courses, two driving circuits, one large skid pad, and a whole lot of snow will all come together this coming January and February as Porsche enthusiasts throughout the world make their way to Porsche’s Camp4 Canada winter driving academy.
Beginning January 31 and ending February 8, Porsche will offer three back-to-back Camp4 classes. Experienced customers can opt to attend Camp4S from February 8-12.
Like a jaunt to the ski resort, Camp4 provides the thrill and adrenaline of high-speed winter driving with the comforts and luxury of a high-end resort. Located almost an hour from Montreal, Estérel Suites, Spa & Lake in Québec will provide shelter for the four-day Camp4 driving school that contains two full driving days. While at Camp4 you will learn how to drive in treacherous winter driving conditions and will specifically be taught how to effectively change direction, brake, and perform a hill-start on low traction snow and ice surfaces.
If Camp4 is the winter driving equivalents of green and blue ski runs, than Camp4S provides drivers with black runs. With the addition of another driving day, Camp4S gives participants the chance to tackle an even more challenging driving course. Unfortunately for those new to Camp4, it is a perquisite to have had prior success at a Precision-level Porsche Sport Driving School Course, such as Camp4, to participate at Camp4S. There’s always next year.
Whether you’re looking for the thrill of driving a Porsche in the snow, the beauty of Québec in winter, or a thrilling family vacation that also teaches you and your loved ones how to safely control a vehicle in snow and ice, Camp4 and Camp4S will satisfy your driving desires as you push the latest Porsche models to their limits within the safe confines of a designated winter driving school.
