Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - OUT & ABOUT -

JAMES SADLIER For me Porsche just had so many stun­ning ex­am­ples with var­ied his­to­ries. From an early 1977 Porsche 928 coupé – the 39th off the pro­duc­tion line – to a 1992 Porsche 968 Cabri­o­let in vi­brant mint green. The in­te­rior was just as loud – the rich blue up­hol­stery should have clashed but ac­tu­ally looked ul­tra sporty and fit­ting for an early ‘90s soft top sports car. Its six-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion and sports ex­haust is enough to get it to 60mph in 6.5 se­conds. Th­ese front en­gined clas­sics over­shad­owed even the 914 and 911 col­lec­tive, let alone any­thing BMW had to of­fer!
