If you're going to take a 1,000 mile road trip across Europe, Porsche makes a number of high-end sports and GT cars that could comfortably cover the distance in a single sitting.
However, one retired GP decided chose a vintage Porsche tractor for his journey from the south of Germany to the Welsh coast last month. With a top speed of just 12mph, this journey took the former medic 22 days to complete.
Arthur Niesser fell in love with his grandfather's tractor as a seven-year-old on the family farm and returned to his hometown in Germany to buy it and drive all the way home. En route Niesser raised £2,500 for charity Doctors Without Borders.
The 61-year-old was waved off by family and friends in Bussmannshausen, south Germany and drove the tractor back from to his home in the northern Welsh coastal town of Porthmadog – travelling across four countries in the process. Niesser drove through Germany, Belgium, France and England on the way home.
Following the trip he said: "I was completely on my own, but I never felt lonely", writes the Daily Mail.
"First and foremost, it was my love for the tractor that led me to take on this journey. When I was given the chance to buy the tractor, I just knew I had to."
Following this experience, Niesser is planning another trip: "I have already started planning another journey from Germany to Poland, that I want to complete in four years time for the anniversary of Kristallnacht."
