I nearly wept...honestly. Seeing any vintage Porsche in this kind of showroom condition, literally, will do that to the passionate sort like me. 

This is the closest I will ever come to reliving the moments of when I saw a 944 Turbo in the showroom as a 14 year old and just poured over the thing, brochures clutched in my sweaty hand. What I cherish most is that these 41 year old eyes have much more experience and can appreciate all of the details that pertain to a time capsule such as this...like cosmoline.

Look at the thing, will ya? Everything is just so perfect, I just question why the hell someone would buy a car and barely use it in 28 years; probably a collector, or eccentric, or maybe even a drunk whose lost his license for life and just couldn't bring himself to part with such a specimen.

The other thing? Orange peel...I never noticed such a thing on a 944. I am alone in this? Neckarsulm was a high quality operation, my parent's '86 Audi 5000S didn't have orange peel, why am I seeing this on a much more expensive car? I want to believe it's the light, the camera, I dunno...but when you look at the door sills, the paint looks like glass. Hell, I'll take it anyway...excessive self-indulgence as a spotty teen has left me nearly blind—I won't even see the orange peel in a few years.

highball!

I've seen factory orange-peel on low mile 928s too.
