The Model: Its simple smooth lines, its unmatched road feel, and it impeccable handling, attributes that lasted for decades, have made the Porsche 911 like a rolling eulogy to the late Butzi Porsche.  It was his concept that gave us the simple little cars that were not so flashy, and not so powerful, but when drivers, real drivers took the controls everything seemed right with the world.  Over the years, designers in Stuttgart have tried their best to clean up and polish the rear-engined machines, and rid them of what are politely called “quirks”.  And they largely have. A new 911 is nothing short of amazing.  It is still, however, those first cars, before things got complicated, that deliver a connection with the machine, like an old friend that knows just what you are thinking.


The Car: While some believe that vintage Porsches are somewhat sacrosanct, some need sportier, more modern lines. If you are going to modify Butzi’s Porsche why not use parts from one of Germany’s most respected design houses, Strosek. Covered in modern widebody lines and fresh paint this radical 911 stands out from the crowd on its 18-inch turbo twist wheels. The 2.7 liter still delivers the melodious flat-six exhaust notes you would expect as power is transferred through the five-speed transmission. While this classic Porsche is a departure from the factory lines, the professional quality of the German lines are sure give its new owner years of enjoyment.
