Roads-by-Porsche-App

If there’s one brand that has focused primarily on the driving experience, and consistently so, it’s Porsche. Hell, you can still get a manual transmission in the exclusive 2019 911 Speedster, if that’s any indication, and the brand even churns out SUVs like the Macan Turbo that can outdo most sports cars in terms of performance. Their new app aptly titled “Roads by Porsche” stems from that same spirit, the same love of driving, and you can use it even if you’re pockets aren’t deep enough to own a Porsche. You just have to be a driving enthusiast. The idea behind the app is to build a guide for the best driving roads in the world and build a community whose passion is the drive and who have the desire to connect and share. The app’s design and user experience is very Porsche, clean and slick, and drivers can share routes with half a million members, and there’s even a related magazine where user driving experiences are shared. Perhaps the app will inspire you to save up for the 718 Cayman GT4 you’ve been lusting after.
