Beautiful beaches, turbulent cities, dense jungle: Southeast Asia is known for all of these things. However, the islands and peninsulas between the Indian and Pacific oceans have much more to offer, especially for petrolheads like Stefan Bogner and his team.
Bogner travelled throughout Malaysia for ‘Curves’ magazine, on two routes between the east and west coasts, around 1,600 kilometres north and nearly 1,000 km south.
“The natural challenges on a route are what make a journey exciting and diverse for us,” enthuses Bogner. “Climbing the mountains via steep passes, following a course that’s wild and bold, and enjoying fantastic landscapes.”
However: “Norway is a country for the advanced, adventurous driver. For those with wanderlust. For travellers with real stamina,” says Bogner. Sometimes it’s bursting with life and filled with events and action – and then you’re back to the slow-rolling colours, landscapes and nature running on heavy-rotation repeat. “Slow-motion sightseeing is what we named it,” he says. “You can’t rush these kilometres upon kilometres – you have to be patient.”
“The fact that the roads in the east welcomed the Cayman GT4 RS so warmly, without any stop-and-go nonsense or too many urban stretches, made us love this car even more.” He emphasises, by the way, that he was never a racer on these German roads – apart from just one time: “On the racetrack at the Porsche factory in Leipzig, the GT4 RS took us all the way to its upper limits.”
