HIS­TORY

911 Porsche World - - You & Yours -

What can we say about Mike Calvert’s eclec­tic duo his­tory wise? Well, there is lit­tle to con­nect them, save for tur­bocharg­ing. Back in 1981, when Porsche built a lim­ited run of 924 Car­rera GTS for ho­molo­ga­tion pur­poses, the Turbo was still some­thing of a nov­elty and the Car­rera GT, with its 210bhp, was a rare and ex­otic ma­chine, com­pletely chang­ing the 924’s im­age and paving the way for the 944.

The 996 Turbo was a gamechanger when launched in 2000, blend­ing su­per­car per­for­mance with un­ri­valled prac­ti­cal­ity. Mike’s car is fur­ther en­hanced with Techart good­ies.
