I've always loved the 928. I was 3 years old when Porsche built it in the late 70's. At that time, I received that friction car 928 made by Joustra as a christmas present, and it quickly became my favorite toy.
To my eyes, it looked like a spaceship, and it still does. It was nearly ten years before I saw a real one. I was sitting on a bus in Germany during a school trip and I saw it parked in front of his German owner's house. It was white, just like a dream come true.

Many years later, I realized I had money enough to buy one, mainly because prices had become ridiculously low, and so  that's exactly what I did in late 2007 ! I searched for a white one, but settled for a black one in the end. It had very low mileage and was in nice condition. His previous owner was a real estate agent who only used it to go to the golf club on Sundays and drove less than 500 miles a year for the twelve years he owned the car.

One day, I drove it to a raceway and realized how I'd be sad if I crashed it. Some guys there ran three 924 and seemed to have more fun than me, so I bought a 924 too and prepared it for racing, and it was actually pretty good at it. Unfortunately, I had to sell the 924 recently, but I still have my 928. I can’t imagine my life without it!

More and more people have to look at this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you aren't more popular since you certainly possess the gift.

    Porsche 928

    The first "clean sheet" design made by Porsche. From 1978 through 1995, this world-class GT was created to replace the 911 but went on instead to offer a more sophisticated alternative to its air-cooled brethren.
