Organized in conjunction with Forbes Travel Guide, guests at five luxury hotels across the U.S. can take a two-hour driving tour in a loaner Porsche to see some of the area's most scenic locales. Guests get to choose from the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid (shown here), which can run on electric-only power, the Carrera S Cabriolet or Cayenne GTS.

The driving tour includes stops at:

  • Four Seasons Hotel Boston (May 10-June 7)
  • Four Seasons Hotel Chicago (June 14-July 12)
  • The Grand Del Mar in San Diego (July 26-Aug. 23)
  • Mandarin Oriental San Francisco (Sept. 13-Oct. 11)
  • The Canyon Suites at The Phoenician in Scottsdale (Nov. 1-Dec. 13)

Of course the hotels on that list average 850 a night.
I'll just keep stowing my acorns for when I can by a CPO one when I retire.
