Ultimate Dream Garage: 911 Edition

7 posts in this topic

Well, I didn't want to do this on 9/11 with it being such an important date and all, but seeing as in how it is September, I planned on doing a 911 thread.  There may not be many replies on this one, but I know there's a few out there who have an appreciation for the brand. As for me, well, many of you probably know the 911 is my all-around favorite car model, so this one will be both fun an torturous.

The rules-

1) Factory 911's from Porsche only, no RUF's, 9ff's, Singers, etc.

2) Any era and market is allowed.

3) These obviously are not your only cars.

4) Maximum of 9 choices.

Have fun.

1980 to about 1993 air cooled coupe in original unmolested condition. Just a nice driver I can enjoy....that would be it.  My wants are few, my demands are few, but I would love an air cooled 911.

OK Frisky....

I came back just to do this list. For you. For Sled over at MT. (I think I saw two other dream garage threads. Ill do those next)

I am not a Porschephile by any means. Sometimes I see them as  ugly, bug eyed, frog styled Nazi Volkswagen Kafers (Beetles to you folk). But most of the time, I see them as the awesome machines as they are!  I often get lost in its beauty and I sit there staring at it mesmerized by the sheer engineering marvel that it is. I dont know if I could fill all 9 spots, but Ill sure try. These 911s are the ones that I adore the most. And yes, I respect the dickens outta this sports car as its an icon like no other. These 911s are my favorites.

A 911, or a Vette, are not cars that suit my tastes, but I wouldnt mind having several of them in a Jay Leno style garage that I may own...one day...maybe.  (Keep dreaming that dream....)

Thanx Frisky.

Yours is awesome too.

I may be a muscle car guy through and through, an AMERICAN car guy enthusiast at heart, but along the way, I have learned to appreciate the many wonders that exist throughout the world.

Like the 1986 930 Turbo.

It was actually my first time that I fell for the 911. Later I found out that the 1986 930 Turbo is special. My first time in contact with a 911 was in the movie The Bachelor Party in 1984-1985 when it came out on Beta. I did not know how to feel about it but a year or so later fell in love with the  930 Turbo. The Targa from 1987 just looks cool with that whale tail. But those too, (from 1987-1989) have become special models.

From 1989 and on I started doing my homework on the 911 starting with the 959 and when I saw the speedster. And that is when I fell in love with the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7.

Then the 993 came to be and how could anybody not respect the 1993 GT2 and the Twin Turbo of 1997?

I may not like the early 911s before they were called that in 1963 or so, and that is why I may not be a bonafide Porschefile, but I do know enough about them to be...an enthusiast without being a total fan geek about them. But I do respect the dickens outta them.

The 930/911 SC began my Porsche affinity, too. I remember seeing those voluptuous fenders and whale tails as a child in Germany and just having that silhouette burned into my brain permanently. I recall having those little capsules that you put in the bath tub and they grow into sponges of various different shapes and having a red 930 one that I realize now was the pretty much the first automobile I recognized and held as a standard. To this day, I've always been a fan of the brand and that trademark shape.
