I’ll be frank with you. Had Dylan not driven Porsche Speedster in 90210 the crush would have never started. There is something magical about this porsche. It’s cute. It’s rebelious. The low windshield. The simplicity. Did you know it was made as a small and cheap roadster for the USA? Californians loved it! I would have loved that too. It’s my teenage dream. Now, it is a porsche so valuable that it lost some of the beauty it had half a century ago. Still, a magnificent car.
OK, we’ll go personal once again. I was born in 1981, and this might not be absolutely objective. 1981 Porsche 911 is the adult version of the 911's first generation. Bold, sporty. Fast, mean. The performance supercar. This is the real Porsche. I told you, not objective. I would drive this porsche day and night. Without a question, without a slightest hesitation.
Some think of 944 as a less of a Porsche... well, I don't. Friend of mine bought 944 S2 last year from Germany. It's so fun to drive! And it doesn't cost a fortune. I guess that would be the main differentiator for most of us. Then, 944s are going to be nice collectable cars in a few years.
When I was a little boy and saw a car with at least a little bit of a sports look, I called it a Porsche. Porsche was the general name for a sports car. I found out about nine eleven in my later years (I remember the summer of 1996 when I bought the first toy model like it was yesterday). The mighty nine eleven. The Neunelfer.
If the name Benjamin Dimson means something to you... well, you really must be a Porsche 964 fan. These are my personal favorites (= one of the childhood supercars). I have to admin, I didn't know it was the first model with Tiptronic and all-wheel drive. I just loved the look. It's a classic.
The different one. The Porsche 968. It was the entry level option in the 90s. But look at it. Does it look like an entry level option? The fact, that Porsche manufactured 968 only for a few years is maybe more positive now than it has been twenty years ago. I think it shows something about the owner, that he chose the 968. Don't you think?
And that’s all.
