The Porsche I Fell In Love With After Sitting In
One night at the auto show I sat in a 991.2 Turbo S Cabriolet. And I fell in love
My first impressions
The 991 generation Turbo S is one of my favorite modern Porsche 911s. From its striking design to its breathtaking performance, it really had an impression on me. Especially when I got close to it at the auto show. It was a nice evening in January. I was with my best friend and we were exploring our local auto show. I discovered a GT Silver Metallic 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. It had a glamorous red interior with a seductive overall design. Another person had been sitting in it. I believe he was one of the people actually running the show. He stepped out and noticed me admiring the 911. He said to me "There you go buddy. You get to sit in a $200,000 car". I laughed and said thank you.
So as he walked on by I opened the door gracefully and took a seat in a brand new 911 Turbo S. As I sat down I noticed I was in a very highly configured 911. It had Bordeaux red leather everywhere. Practically everything was in leather. The Bordeaux red interior worked in harmony with the GT Silver exterior. I gripped the steering wheel and imagined I was cruising along the coast at 99 mph. I was so excited to be in this car. It just felt so special and I always wanted to experience something different from a Ferrari or Lamborghini. It was truly unique. As the 911 is. I could just dream of blasting by the roaring ocean, with the sound of the turbos spooling up. And the 3.8 L flat-6 revving high.
GT Car Lot
I think the fact it was a cabriolet, had so many options with iconic interior and exterior colors, it was a very emotional experience just by sitting in it and admiring it. It was truly a sight for sore eyes. I can't imagine how incredible it would be to drive. Especially with and AWD system, 570 horsepower and 516 lb ft of torque. Not to mention a quick shifting transmission. Am I being overly dramatic about sitting in a car? Maybe. But The Porsche 911 has ignited the kind of passion in us enthusiasts that only a 911 can. And it is an expression of who we are. Sitting in the 991.2 Turbo S was one of the coolest experiences I have had at a car show. And I dream of not only driving one, but owning one.
