In California we took the 41 to 46 then North on Pacific Highway for like 70 miles on 1 or something like that. Had lunch at Nepenthe at Big Sur, The cliffs are crazy tall and pretty and the road is windy and perfect. Vista's everywhere to stop and gaze. Then over to the 101 South bound, past Laguna Seca and back home through the 198 Canyon. Much of these roads are shown in Car and Driver and other mag reviews on video and the mags. Pretty much this drive starts and ends in my backyard!

I took a long trip of a little over 1,000 miles when I first got mine. I found it to be very comfortable. I set the cruise on 82, limit was 75, and got about 17 MPG.

Drove highway 1 in California along the coast from Rancho Palos Verdes (below LA) to San Fransisco with my 20 year old son. Left the house with 15 miles on the car and had a great time. Father/son memory of a lifetime.

Will be heading up to Monterey in July for the MotoGP race! I-5 to the 46 to the 101 to the 68. I love doing that drive. I have done it in two different cars over the years, the ZL1 will be the third.

Drove from Texas to Maryland thanks to the Army. Was a nice ride, minus all of the junk that was in my car.

Taking road trip this summer from Wisconsin to Jackson Hole WY. Three cars, 2008 911 S, a 2010 GTR and my 2012 CRT ZL1. The pleasure cruise should be interesting, and I'm sure we'll have some good safe fun!
