They tried to give the car a classic look without making extreme modifications to the body and compromising the car's distinctive ‘impact bumper’ look. And they bought it because the car has a lot of character with the unmistakable sound of an air-cooled flat-six engine and the weight distribution of a hammer - characteristics which make it much more fun to drive.

Close Calls and Lessons Learned

Recently we were lucky enough to meet Mr. Scott Fisher, who just finished an epic solo quest. On his way to visit us, Scott had the misfortune of meeting a deer at high speed. He was not physically injured (just his psyche) although his Datsun was scarred and the deer is now chasing bucks in the great beyond. However, hearing about it and seeing the damage got me pondering my own moments of automotive near misses.

It all started five years ago, when I walked into Magnus Walker’s downtown loft and boldly introduced myself! “Hi, I’m Alexander Bermudez and I just bought a Porsche,” I gleefully announced with a chimpanzee’s grin.

This Porsche is completely original and unrestored. It still has its original paint and interior. The color is sand beige, and it has export bumpers, a nice wood-rim steering wheel, and air conditioning. “The previous owners really cared about it. If they hadn't, it wouldn’t be in such good condition. And most of all, I like how it drives. It's still so fast, and the sound is fantastic. It really wants to run!”

Alexander Bermudez of Pasadena, California, never thought he'd be the proud owner of a 1990 Porsche 964 RS clone, but after the owner who was a friend of his urged Alexander to take a test drive, there was no other possible outcome. Once free of the parking lot, the car exploded to life, howling down the street like nothing Alexander had ever experienced before.

With its many curves, elevation changes, and natural beauty, the Italian countryside is a perfect place to own a vintage car. Many dream of legendary cars roaming these roads, and when Donato Maniscalco was ten years old, his car of dreams was a Porsche 911.

For the last eight years, he has spent his weekends racking up miles at vintage rallies as well as on personal drives, with the odometer now reading well past the 200,000-mile mark.

I recently rode shotgun in a supercar: a McLaren 12C Spider. It was sinister. It was black and had doors that scissored open more smoothly than the legs of a Vegas showgirl. Unfortunately, the 12C Spider was designed for speed but will rarely ever get to stretch its legs, because 99% of drivers will never approach the car's true limit, being forced to drive it at 2/10s all the time.

Respected architect Jonathan Segal poetically describes what the 1973 Porsche 911 2.7L RS meant both to Porsche and its drivers. Jonathan's career as an architect has developed his pursuit for purity in the structures he creates. One look around Jonathan’s studio and garage, and you’ll know this isn’t just a man cave for rusted signs and pin-up girls—it's a forum, allowing each car to communicate to their viewers. Jonathan's signal-yellow RS demands an audience and it incites him to drive to the redline every time.
