Calling the Porsche 550 Spyder a legend is like describing Walter Röhrl as a reasonable rally driver: an understatement, to put it mildly. In 1953 Porsche began to build cars especially designed for motorsports, starting with the 1500 RS Spyder, the then official name. The light construction with under 700 kilos kerb weight plus the powerful engine made for excellent driving performances and it was road legal, too.

The mad rush goes on! ... for curves and unforgettable moments on the road. After the overwhelming success of "Cars & Curves" Volume 1, a fireworks of rare models and breathtaking routes on occasion of the 70th Porsche anniversary, Stefan Bogner goes for the next one.

The “Großglockner”, Austria’s highest mountain with 3,789 m, is one of the most important summits of the Eastern Alpes – and not only because he is so important for alpine tourism.
