Event Coverage: August M1 Concourse Cars and Coffee - Porsche 911

It's no secret that I have a bit of an obsession with the Porsche 911. At the recent Cars and Coffee at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, MI, I saw several 911's. Porsche seems to be one of the best represented manufacturers at this cars and coffee, right behind Ford, FCA and GM. When I saw this 930 911 slant nose, I fell in love. This doesn't appear to be an original "Flachbau" but rather a later conversion for motorsports.

.

The rear of the car has that instantly recognizable profile of a Porsche 911 Turbo. And the gold wheels really bring it all together.

This 993 was super clean. I've come to realize that I don't care what version of the 911 I see, I'm still going to like it. Unless it's a Cabriolet....

.

Add captionWhile updated a bit from the 964 911, the 993 still bears the classic 911 shape. And the 993 was the last of the Air-Cooled 911's before they went to the 996 and Water Cooling.


This 997 Carrera was a bit understated, sitting beside the Corvette. These cars can have that effect. Unless it's a Turbo or a GT2 or GT3, the newer 911's tend to be overlooked. Still amazing cars, though.

.

There was an Original 930 "Flachbau" Slantnose 911 there. Note the pop-up headlights, the boxed rocker covers and the slats in the rear air inlet.

.
The rear end of the Slant Nose had slightly redesigned tail-lamps, which some 911 enthusiasts hate, but I don't see anything there to hate. I really want one of these cars.

.

This 930 Turbo was another super clean example present. I'd love to have this in my driveway.

.

Another shot of that iconic tail end. And a very fitting plate.

.

If there's anything I love more than a 911, it's a 911 Targa. This example was, again, super clean.

.

Next to a new 911, this car looks old, but, somehow, has far more class and presence.

.

This Targa had it's roof off. There isn;t any part of this car that I don't like. I even like the color.

.

Here's another 997, which, I didn't see at first, thought it was parked next to a Forester XT....

.

I'll finish this up with a few shots of the current 991 911.
Enjoy.
