I was in Los Angeles for work and had a few hours between my lunch meeting and my dinner with a colleague, so I decided to visit Porsche South Bay.
What a treat.
It is one of a handful of classic Porsche service centers, which perform full restorations. I really enjoyed looking at the cars and talking to the staff.
A beautiful 914-6.
A Signal Yellow 911S. Goodness.
A white 993 RS—something I’ve never seen in person before.
A 964 America Roadster (a turbo body on a naturally aspirated cabriolet).
This 911 SC was one of my favorite cars.
A beautiful 991.2 GT3 with options that put the price over $230k. Yikes.
Lastly, a Miami Blue 991 Turbo S.
When I’m on the road, I’ve started this new habit of stopping by dealers to ask “Do you have anything special?”
I’m doing this because its fine, folks at the dealers seem to enjoy answering that question, and because a friend recently died who loved to do this at Ferrari shops. So its a bit of a tribute coupled with remembering to take time to enjoy things you love. And I love looking at Porsches—especially air cooled ones.
