Driving around the world… in a Porsche 356

Getting your hands on a Porsche 356 – the German manufacture’s first production car – would make you a very lucky fellow. Getting your hands on a soon-to-be-70-year-old 356 and then driving it across two continents incorporating some of the harshest landscapes on the planet would simply make you mad.

Yet this is exactly what one 60-year-old Japanese man decided to do earlier this year, and he completed his journey in time for the 70th anniversary celebrations of the car at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany.

Suzuki-san’s starting position was his home in Kamogawa in Chiba, a leafy Japanese prefecture south-east of Tokyo, and approximately 10,000km away from Stuttgart. Had he decided to fly by aeroplane, Suzuki-san’s journey would have taken more than 13 hours – so maybe going by the car was the better idea after all.
