Learn To Drive A Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS With Richard Meaden
Here's your chance to finally learn how to drive your vintage Porsche.
Porsche 911s, especially vintage ones with a motorsport slant, are famous for being a bit of an enigma to drive quickly. In point of fact, you can never really be a quick 911 driver until you've spent a significant amount of time in the driver's seat getting a feel for the proper level of aggression required. When the track is wide open and you've got a well worn pair of Alpinestars on, what's the best way to get the most out of your 911? Thanks to Motor Sport magazine and their YouTube channel, Dickie Meaden is more than happy to go for a waltz around the track to give you a good impression of how to make it work.
This 911 was lent to Motor Sport by AutoFarm, a vintage car sales lot in the UK with a wide range of expensive and rare cars like this one. When your hands are wrapped around the steering wheel of a potentially million dollar car, you've really got to trust that you know what you're doing. Meaden has driven just about everything to have ever been built, and he's developed something of a reputation as a stellar driver. As such, he is fully qualified to teach you how to get the most from your long hood 911 driving experience. Heed these words carefully and you'll be competent in, well, not 'no time', but eventually.
Even if you don't own a 911 Carrera RS 2.7 - as we surely do not - you'll get a good amount of enjoyment simply from watching 'ol Dickie driving this vintage beauty like it owed him. He's aggressive, but not too aggressive. He's deliberate, but makes sure to keep inputs smooth. He's confident, but not overconfident. He gets the ingredients to proper 911 wringing just right.
