Five years had passed and still I thought about it and how I'd like to buy it back. Then one day I was browsing cars online and I saw this Speed Yellow 993 that looked remarkably similar to my dad's.  I immediately called the guy, asked a few questions about the car, and scheduled an appointment to look at it. Then I called my dad.

Whilst refueling at a dusty station in Acton, I had an epiphany that lead to a ringing phone in North Hollywood. John enthusiastically agreed that photographing his car on unpaved roads in the high desert would be a great homage to the original Rothmans’ machines. Off I went in search of mud! Continuing through the Antelope Valley, the SCRS stormed along the forgotten desert road with ease.

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.

With his parents safely dropped off at the airport, the pair take Joel’s father’s Porsche 928 out for a joyride (I love, love how the soundtrack cuts out and restarts when Joel stalls the car!), and cruise the streets of the Chicago suburbs. They look for girls to pick up, and do a bit of street racing.

This dark blue on white 1987 928 S4 fits that bill. As one of the rarer 5-speed models (most cars sold in America were automatics) and with under 60,000 miles, this 928 S4 has been babied by a Porsche Club of America member and has its service records from Porsche dealerships going back to when new.

I love the Fiat 124 because it embodies all the charm, romance, style and sex appeal of the most famous classic Italian cars while delivering it in a practical, cheap package that anyone can get their hands on. But the Porsche is a different story: I purchased the 911 because of a nagging that I just couldn't ignore as I grew up in the back of one.

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. Magnus didn’t skip a beat; he opened his garage and allowed a complete stranger, to salivate over his unique collection of early 911s.

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!”
