A Porsche 356 Climbs a Snowy Pikes Peak

by Paul Strauss

Jeff Zwart is a Pikes Peak legend. He’s been a rally driver for over 20 years, and has won the Pikes Peak Hill Climb – in a Porsche.

In this beautifully photographed short film he collaborated on with director Will Roegge, Jeff takes us on a trip down memory lane as he drives a rear engine, rear-wheel drive 1953 Porsche 356 Pre A out on the snow-covered route.

While we’re not too sure we’d take such as a beautiful and valuable classic car on the slippery and twisty roads of Pikes Peak, but with Zwart behind the wheel, there’s not too much to worry about. Plus, the 356 pushes out less than 50 horsepower at that altitude, but it still looks like a ton of fun.
