When i was a kid the porsche 911 just didn’t do it for me. i had the obligatory lamborghini countach on my wall alongside a porsche 928. i was a weird kid.
even as an adult the 911 just wasn’t on my radar. it probably didn’t help that the 996, (fried egg headlights, no thanks) was everywhere in the late 90’s. every magazine review and test raved about the 911s capabilities. even my favourite magazine evo, would consistently crown it champion in its annual ecoty. yet, i still didn’t get the general obsession with them.
but something has changed in the last few years. the car that most intrigues me is a 911. why the change? at this point you might expect me to tell you about an amazing blast across the highlands of scotland in a borrowed 911. but no, i still haven’t driven one.
i blame youtube. key 911 into the search bar, and it doesn’t take long to fall into a rabbit hole of air and water cooled goodness. there are plentiful stories of people who have been seduced by the rear engined wonder. but the film that first caught my attention was urban outlaw, featuring a certain @magnuswalker
collector of all sorts of porsche’s. (if for some reason you haven’t seen it, i highly recommend you do). the realisation came to me that this is a car that is first and foremost a drivers machine. whether you’re a purist who wants everything original, or a serial modifier of cars, there’s a porsche for you. it’s the sports car for everyone.
for me though, the next goal is to drive one. i want to know for myself if it lives up to the hype.
what would your perfect porsche be?
