If the dude got $1 for every forum post asking about his 'rare and amazing porsche', he'd would have made $12,000,000 already

Here's one of our old 911 taken at Ribblehead in the Yorkshire Dales a few weeks ago. We've owned her for around 10 years and toured all over Europe in that time but she's having to share our leisure-time with the Buell XB12X of late

My car on the far right a few weeks ago at a local cars and coffee type event. The Arena Red car on the left is a Ruf TurboR.

Love my basket handle, I have no plans to remove it. Some day the 95's that still have them will be the most sought after collectables.

Yep, they are MY02's. I think they really modernize the look of these cars.

The factory actually thought of the original 911s as Oil cooled engines, sort of like the 1200GS. First 10, 15+ yrs the right rear fender of the 911 was a 12-14 quart oil tank. Expensive oil changes.

Below is a link of 150+ pictures of the Porsche factory.
