As someone that works around Porsches and lives in New England... I can say this: Modern Porsches are better in the snow then Subarus (as a former WRX owner) The 4WD ones are unstoppable in all seasons. Carrera 4 and Turbos just DOMINATE in the snow with the proper tires. The older ones are great in the snow too, you just need to know what you're doing: I'm saving my pennies for one... for all year long. I just bought some Porsche wheels for my GTI.
