I test drove a Porsche 718, the new model where a 6-cyl naturally aspirated flat six engine has been replaced with a new turbo 4-cyl engine, the first time in Finland last June. The car was a lava orange Porsche 718 Boxster S, the one with a 2.5L engine producing 350 hp, but sadly without […]

Last Thursday I met up with two friends who came from Italy to Monaco to have a stroll around the first edition of a new car show in Europe, SIAM 2017 Monaco International Motor Show. Of course when there is something new you want to see it. The show is described on the website as […]

One of my first drives up on the beautiful mountain road Col de Vence in France, about 20 km from Nice, was almost 3 years ago in a BMW. I had photographer Richard Pardon & videographer JC Pieri hanging out from the boot of the car, shooting supercars behind me. I got caught by the […]

Yesterday was a sunny day spent in Monte Carlo with friends for the first Cars & Coffee Monaco event for this year. My two friends Federico and Jacopo, both who write for the site Escape on Wheels, were down south from Italy to follow and shoot the Rallye Monte Carlo Historique event. I had not […]

When Dorian, who is a car photographer & spotter on Côte d’Azur, spotted me one day with the racing yellow Porsche 718 Cayman in Monaco we decided we need to set up a photo shoot of the car some day. There are always some limitations with what kind of photos I am able to take […]

Colcorsa – “the world’s greatest driving roads in the best driver’s cars” – is the luxury supercar driving tour company that I founded last year. Now the prices for this year are online for most of the driving tours, and also a list of all the available cars in all regions (supercars, sports cars and […]

Route de la Turbie and the road that goes up all the way to Tête de Chien, from where you have an amazing view over Monaco and the coast… This scenic driving road that can be described as the playground of Monaco supercar owners has now become my playground too. I was first introduced to […]

After a failed sunrise drive up to the summit of Mont Ventoux it was time to do a change of plans. My first idea was to stay a night in the area (because two sunrise drives are better than one, right?). However because the road was closed I decided to start the drive back instead […]

Sometimes when I have a car for a drive I know exactly where I want to take it, what road I want to drive with it. Now the Porsche 718 Cayman was delivered to me a morning in late December, with temperatures ranging from 13-20 degrees daytime on the French Riviera. I got the car […]

So why did I end up on a Mercedes-Benz G-Class off-road trip in the Scottish Highlands, trying to make it coast to coast in a black G-Wagen? To quote the roadbook, “Over the next couple of days, we will be attempting something no one, to our knowledge, has done before: to drive motor cars from […]

Happy holidays from the sunny French Riviera! I am spending this year’s Christmas in a Porsche. During my 28 years on this planet I have never spent a Christmas away from my family. However this year I made the decision I would not be flying back to Finland basically just for one day. I love […]

The website Drivetribe has now launched and my tribe The Perfect Roads – the world’s greatest driving roads in the best driver’s cars – is up and already filled with nice road content. I was able to choose if I want to make it public so all members can post, or if I want to […]

I had a round trip I had to do from Nice to Zürich at some point before end of November, so last Sunday morning I left Nice early in the morning and drove towards Zürich but with a stop in Milan first. I had a good reason for that stop. The Duemila Ruote (Italian for […]

When I said I had test driven a Tesla Model S P85D – and that I actually quite enjoyed driving the car – the reactions were what I sort of expected. “How can you like a Tesla? It is electric, it is quiet, it is like a big computer that does everything for you. It […]

“Do you want to drive the Ferrari to a music video shoot?” was the question classic car dealer Harri Asunta asked me a day in August. He knew I liked the car as I already had it for a weekend earlier, and if someone asked me do I want the keys back to an F355 […]
