you see, you see? it was only a matter of time before the frontmotor gang got some recognition; and it happened back in 2007. I was about to scream bloody murder, suspecting the marketing department being on flüssig's shirttails, but we weren't even a thought back then.

I think these came out a bit too soon, though. merely 12 years after the last 968s and 928s were squeezed from the bowels of the factory never to be produced again is too short a time; 20 years hence would've been a bit more apropos dropping it neatly on this year's lap.

imagine this for a moment. someone who's just a year shy of drinking age never saw the 968 or the 928 in the showroom, a recent graduate, Master's Degree in fist, never knew what sitting in a brand new 944S2 was like, a 30 year old who's possibly a father or mother changing soiled nappies in between reruns of Wife Swap or Game of Thrones had missed the last of the 2,0 liter 924s rolling off the trucks ready to be checked in and prepped for a new owner.

so what's my point? well, unless you're a bit thick, there's a direct correlation with the three age groups-give or take-that will soon have a bit of expendable cash to pursue a life long dream of owning a vintage Porsche; what better way to whet the appetite than these four bantam Wassergekühlt Porsches smartly packaged and branded by a company whose name evokes dreams, mystique, and above all else, desire, lust if you like.

precisely why two decades is the perfect amount of gestation for a group of Porsches so called Millennials never really knew but are eager to find out. 

highball!
