Many thanks for printing my letter last month ( Selling out, March 2018). Obviously when I tapped it out on my keyboard, I had no idea that classic Porsche stalwart, Seume, had jumped to the darkside. The accompanying picture of him standing in between El Chucho and his new Cayman came as a quite a shock. Indeed, I felt let down. As I said in my missive, 'have we not all shared this journey with the man?' and now he repays us with this, a modern, water-cooled Porsche. Hell, it's not even a 911.
OK, my tongue is slightly in cheek. Like I said, I'm an inveterate tinkerer and projecteer and I've been following Keith's antics for years, not just in Porsche mags, but VW mags, too (I'm not a stalker, honest). But, after the shock of it all, maybe he's right. The time, the money, the effort and for what? I'm questioning my project motivation and it's all your fault, Seume. I haven't been in the garage for weeks now. Sure it's cold in there and I'm waiting for some parts, but the doubt has set in.
So, what I'm hoping is that this is all just a dalliance, a flash in the pan, the Emperor's new clothes and that you'll soon get bored with modern Porsche motoring, flog the Cayman and get back in the garage. Deep down, though, I fear that you may be right... Henry Allan, via email
