GT Porsche - October 2016
GT Porsche | October 2016
Modifying a Porsche can be a contentious talking point, but it’s an interesting one nonetheless. This month’s cover car reflects a relatively buoyant section of the current Porsche scene that indulges its passion for retro-styled 911s. The cars which are part of this movement are either simply backdated to appear older than they once were, or they are modified with a twist of nostalgia by mixing all sorts of styles, both old and new, together in one automotive melting pot. Broadly speaking these are cars shaped by each individual owner’s personal desires, and the ultimate goal is to stand out from the crowd. The financial aspects of Porsche ownership are tough to ignore these days, but ultimately it is the purity of the driving experience that these cars provide which has, and continues to make them, so very popular. It’s important to remember that this always was, and should therefore remain, the foremost attraction to entering the world of Porsches, whether they’re standard or modified.
