Event Coverage: Northern Worthersee 2017 - The Finale: Porsche

If you guessed that I'd finish up the NoWo coverage with Porsche, you were obviously correct. While the cars from Stuttgart were outnumbered by the cars from Wolfsberg, I'd take a Porsche over a Volkswagen any day. I'll start it off with this pair of super clean 968's.

.
These cars had an absolutely monstrous 3.0L inline 4 cylinder, which I was unaware of until I did some research on these cars when I got home. I honestly thought they were 944's with 928 headlights...

.

I love this 911 3.2L Targa. I wouldn't change anything about this car. This shape is timeless. Sadly, it's becoming more and more unattainable, as the value continues to climb.

.

There's just something about the shape of the rear end on the old air-cooled 911's that I love.

.

These cars were purely about function, and being as involved as possible in the driving experience. Something you don't get with modern cars. Even the modern 991 911 has several government-mandated driver aids that take away from the experience.

.

This late 1970's, or early 1980's 911SC 3.0L was probably my favorite car at NoWo. Sure, it's not as flashy as the Targa from earlier, but this car was dream car material. It's got that understated look. No flashy colors, no wide, flared fenders, no whale tale, not even chrome wheels.

.
I even like the US-market 5mph safety bumpers. I'd LOVE to have this car in my driveway. I'd probably have to put a different drivers seat in so I could fit, though.


I love the interior in the old 911's. So simple, so functional, yet with a level of class you can't get in anything else from that time.

.

And, to wrap up my coverage of Northern Worthersee, I'll leave you with this 997.

Finally, a big thanks to those who put on the show, the Bavarian Inn for allowing the show to happen on their lawn, and everyone who came out to the show. I'll see you all next year.

Please, check back regularly for more content.

Until then..

-Phil
