    The LED headlamps on the Porsche Carrera 4S barely pierce the icy path, a steeply pitched logging road. Pointing the nose to the outside of the turn, I cram hard on the brake, wrench the steering wheel left and feel the rear wheels break away. Get back on the gas and straighten your hands on the wheel
