Another amazing record journey (was challenge) from a team and Porsche.

Unique facts is running this on the 100 year anniversary of Pikes Peak Hill Climb events and starting from lowest place, a private mine in Michigan.

Cool adventure.

Is that CT Ice Grey or Chalk? I am a fan of that color and it may win out when I order my '22 CT to replace my Cayenne.

I wouldn't exactly call it an amazing challenge just to drive a certain distance without any time limits or anything.

Had it been about doing the trip in the shortest amount of time, I would have been more impressed.

The second video is impressive. I've done the equivalent to the first vid in a rental minivan, so it didn't seem too impressive to me.

I was wondering the same thing! I'm deciding between Chalk and Ice Grey for my GTS order, really hard to decide between the two but I do love the color on that CT.

It does look a kinda beige in other press shots, so maybe Chalk?

That’s Crayon.. My 4s is the same colour and I love it.

Correct you are Perry, I updated my comment to be a unusual record.

It is a nice oddity but these days one can basically just hire the Guinness World Records organization to ratify any record according to criteria you set yourself.

I wish they would discuss where they charged and how long they spent charging. Not sure that there are any fast chargers in the UP and northern Wisconsin. If they were using level 2 chargers, was that time included in their trip time?

Would've been more impressive if they did it the other way - on one charge.
