The racetrack is a very fun place, a truly special location for petrolheads such as myself but we must never forget that it’s still a somewhat dangerous location.
This is where safety cars come in, medical assist vehicles and general support vehicles such as these, the ones included in the latest of announcements from Porsche.
What happens once you get past the disappearance of a purist Porsche from the parade that is the first lap is beyond me but the whole setup looks pretty right.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo ALMS safety car has the more of a safety prone look of a sedan as opposed to the credentials of the widow maker that is the 911.
Also, the backup participation of the Porsche Cayenne in the security of any ALMS event should be quite impressive.
Both of these Porsche vehicles are in turbocharged versions so their performance should be easily at home on the race track circuits of the ALMS series.
Speaking of which, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S should be accustomed to the emergency safety situation since this car has already been working as a medivac unit.
Sure, the American Le Mans Series has a lot of interesting race cars that are driven round famous tracks by drivers which are going for the big prize but the Porsche support vehicles are really better.
