    The P1. Not bad for an electric car that's a hundred years old.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I don't know if some of you get this. It really is the "first Porsche" ever made. Way cool!

    ^ That definitely looks like Colorado to me. I don't live there. My Porsche doesn't look like that.

    Every once in awhile I'll see a palm tree in Colorado.
    Seriously there are some newer housing developments that incorporate fake palm trees. I LMAO every time I see it.

    Does this look like your Porsche?

    Looks more like palmetto bush than Palm Trees to me. Sweet old rusty Porsche, though.

    If that dude had enough money to buy a new Porsche, he'd really have something there!

    Which of the two Porches are worth more do you reckon? Number 1 or that carbon jobbie?

    I wasn't saying that I have a GT3, I was making a smartass comment to AZ's post just above mine. But I can easily get pics of me sitting in a GT3. One of my clients has one. In fact, he'd probably let me cruise it around the block.

    But the carbon jobbie by would be way more fun to own.

    Sure, but it is carbon. It will never last. You will be just driving along and it will crack and break without any warning. Aluminum would have been superior.

    John one of these day's i'll do that for you. I know of a housing development not too far from me that is built around a lake as it's center piece and they have fake palms throughout.

    Really seeing how race cars have been using carbon for decades I think they've got it figured out.

    Yes that is a 914 the Volkswagen of Porsches. A collaboration between Porsche and Volkswagen. I purposely picked the worst Porsche model ever made and googled rusty 914 for Hawgs car.

    That particular 914 has a 6 cyl. A very rare model. They were quite fast bitd. The 5 lug Fuchs alloy wheels give it away as one.

    Oh wow and I thought I knew everything about cars. I didn't realize they made a 6 cylinder model. I've driven a 4 cylinder model 914 way back. Fun little car although I was a bit confused when I opened the door and noticed the tag in the door jam and it said built by "Volkswagen". That's how I found out about the history of the 914.

    Technically, all Porsches are Volkswagons. So are all Audi's and Lamborghinis.

    Technically not really but somewhat true but maybe not all correct but kind of correct but almost the same but identically different.
