The Queen of cool!
Our Porsche 911S is a Targa, but apart from that it is identical to the one Steve McQueen drove in “Le Mans” and this is no coincidence!!! The “King of Cool” was an enthusiast, and just as him we have fallen for the unique blend of the sportsmanship, the efficiency and the masculine elegance of the 911…
The Porsche 911 is truly the archetype of “the sports car”. It is very comfortable and very practical yet certain details do not deceive; it was fundamentally designed for speed!!! In the 70’s, nothing else interested the Zuffenhausen engineers… nevertheless, a far cry from its reputation of being a car for “racing drivers”, the 911 is quite “easy to handle”. As a matter of fact, it is an agile mount, with an extremely sharp and precise front end. In fact, when sitting behind the wheel, one can be quite surprised by its extreme efficacy and it can be difficult to believe that one is driving a 43-year-old “classic”!!!
Notably, the engine doesn’t have a scratch. Its 2.4L, 6 cylinder “aircooled” boxer is a dream. Its racing grade dry sump lubrication allows it to climb in the RPM’s with thunderous speed and it is exceptionally reliable. The look of the dashboard has become legendary. The Targa soft top is simple and practical and the controls come naturally to hand … in point of fact the 911 is flawless!!!
Practical Note: The Porsche 911 has an acceptably spacious front luggage compartment (suitable for rather flat or soft luggage). Furthermore, there are 2 real back seats suitable for children or young teenagers. The “Targa” concept is fantastic because one can switch between coupe and convertible depending on one’s mood or kind of route.
With a very modern design, the 911 is easy to handle. It is an ideal car for long journeys, reliable and not tiring to drive. One only needs to be extra vigilant when it rains.
