Only the Air-cooled Need Apply

Luftgekühlt II did not lack for rare Porsches. Highlights included uber-rare 964 3.8 RS; street and race-prepped 904s and 906s; a 1971 East African Safari 911; a 959, a 964 Carrera 4 RS Lightweight; the Petersen Automotive Museum's early 356 Continental Cabriolet; and a Le Mans-winning Kremer 935 driven into the event by good friend of Petrolicious, Bruce Meyer. This event was like being a kid in a candy story–that is, if that candy store is filled with Porsches.

In the annals of automotive design, the 1970s is something less than a highlight. In the United States, we had a decade of cars that are now more valuable for their strength in a demolition derby than for their aesthetic or performance attributes. In Europe and Japan, however, a few exceptions to this decade of mediocrity managed to emerge, among them the the Lancia Stratos, the "Kenmeri" Nissan Skyline, and the Porsche 2.7 RS.

In 1981, a respected car magazine noted that the 924 Carrera GT was “a true road-going racing car. Make no mistake; this is a very serious motor car for serious drivers, truly reflecting its racing parentage”. A read of Smith’s book might make you a believer that the 924 Carreras are some forgotten stars.

Having actually worked at Porsche for six years (first in PR, then marketing), I have to attribute part of my love of old cars to my time there. But after twelve years of reviewing new cars, I was all about the latest technology, or the most up-to-date styling. Working at Porsche nurtured the other side of my automotive brain, introducing me to the ideas of continuity, heritage, and unbroken lineage.

A German sports car, Italian coupé, and British roadster, all of which are four-speed manuals and from the ‘60s before regulations began homogenizing car design. This is the common idea that unites my trio. The varied forms and driving experiences serve to highlight their similarities and differences...

Grateful for Classic Cars and Bonding, Less so for Pokemon

By Jonathan WC Mills / 14 Jan 2015 / 11 Comments Read More

As the year ended most of us took a moment to pause and reflect; looking backwards at expectations met... and missed. This is a function of being human, of course. However, the end of the calendar provided a moment to think and I couldn’t help but look back on what I consider the most significant aspect of my automotive year: my son’s budding interest in the hobby.

My favorite drive is a yearly ritual. Annually, for the past six years, my son and I drive three hours to Limerock Race Park in Lakeville to attend the Historic festival. The drive through the Berkshires and eventually down Rt. 7 is great. It's great mostly because it's just me and Finn in our Porsche. But the road is twisty and undulates perfectly for the 911...
