From England to South Africa – in a Porsche

From England to South Africa in an old Porsche.

DRIVING ADVENTURE. Ben Coombs and Laura Redding from the UK wanted an adventure. So what to do? Well, driving a 23 year old Porsche 944 to South Africa might just qualify.

On their journey, which lasted a good two months and 15,000 miles (24,140 kms), the Porsche suffered a series of no less that 27 breakdowns, car news website reports.

Ben’s Porsche 944 had seen better days, but rather than dumping the vehicle Coombs decided to undertake this epic journey and see how it far they’d make it, rather than scrapping the car.
