Porsche 911 t Targa (late seventies, eighties?)

March 5th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Time for some pictures of a somewhat beat up old Porsche 911 Targa. Although it is in need of some serious body work, you can still see the beautiful car lurking inside the carcass there somewhere šŸ™‚ Damn, I really like a Porsche from this generation! It’s the car I was looking at from the […]

Porsche 356 Speedster (1954-1957)

February 24th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Oh boy! This is one of the cars of my really short-shortlist to spot. The Porsche 356 Speedster is a true pleasure to the eye, and my all time favorite vintage Porsche. Just look at it! If there is ever a car which could claim the phrase ‘poetry in motion’, this Speedster would be the […]

Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo

Back to Coolhaven, and guess what I run into on the highway? A small convoy of oldtimers, a sunny sunday is always a nice day for spotting oldies: a brilliant Alfa Romeo Spider 1600, a classic Porsche 911 Turbo, a MGB GT V8, and a Volvo Amazon, all nice and cosy together. What a lovely […]

Porsche 911 997 4S Cabrio

August 27th, 2007 · 1 Comment

This nice Porsche was parked just next door. I haven’t seen it before, so it probably isn’t a resident. Oh well, a nice car is a nice car! And it is hard, not to like a Porsche cabrio. Some Porsche enthusiasts will see this as a Carrera 4, somewhat upgraded with flared fenders, eighteen-inch wheels, […]
