Taycan. Rhymes with icon.
With life getting back in motion, now is the perfect time to discover a classic in the
making: Taycan. It’s the first all-electric Porsche sports car, with two permanent-magnet
synchronous motors generating up to 750 hp and acceleration faster than a skydiver in
free fall. Plus, an 800-volt battery that can be partially recharged to add up to 62 miles of
range in just over five minutes. And at Park Place, this new Porsche icon comes with a total
commitment to sanitation, safety and comfort every time you visit the dealership.
That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.

Like many people these days, our vacation plans have
been cancelled or put on hold. But, for those who still
have jobs, vacation time continues to accrue. And in
Frank’s case, he had accumulated nearly two weeks of
vacation time he needed to use or lose by the end of July.
What to do . . . .
Neither of us really wanted to fly anywhere at this
point. But we both have mothers who live out of state:
one in Tennessee and one in Indiana. They both have been
focused on staying in the comfort of their homes as much
as possible, but had dropped hints that they were getting
kind of lonely. So, we decided to take a road trip!
Friday, July 3: Dallas to Collierville, TN. Our typical
route over the Christmas holiday is to drive to Frank’s
parents’ house just outside Memphis, then drive the second
day to my Mom’s house in Fort Wayne, Indiana. On
this trip, we followed that path, but Frank’s mother was
actually out of town for the weekend, visiting her sister, so
we would see her on the way back.
Saturday, July 4: Collierville, TN to Fort Wayne, IN. A
full day on the road, with a stop for lunch at White Castle
in Bowling Green, KY. No inside dining available that day,
so we went through the drive up window and ate in the car
(sorry, VW!). The bridge across the Ohio River at Louisville
looks kind of like the Dallas bridges to nowhere. Arrived at
Mom’s house in time for dinner. Outside temperature: only
79 degrees at 5:02 pm! When’s the last time we saw temps
like that here?
5: Spent the day
at my brother’s
lake house on
on the Indiana/
Very relaxing day
- apparently I fell
asleep outside, on a lawn chair in the shade overlooking the
lake. I was told by one of my nephews that I was snoring
(no photo available).
Monday, July 6: Checked a few things off the list around
Mom’s house, and later had dinner with my mother and
godmother (best friends since high school). We couldn’t
find a restaurant open that evening, so we picked up a pizza
and took it over to Judy’s house - thankfully, she tends to
be well-stocked on wine.
Tuesday, July 7: Looking through some old photos,
found one of me and my grandfather checking out a mid-
60s Corvette; not sure if that was before or after we admired
the Porsche 356 next to it. Then after a pre-birthday sushi
lunch for Frank, we headed south to visit my sister and
Board Botschaft: The “Moms” Tour
by Chris Flaugh, Region Treasurer
her husband at their home in Noblesville, IN. Grilled pork
chops for dinner, and more wine!
Wednesday, July 8: Frank’s birthday - he received the
traditional birthday greeting my sister bestows on her four
boys. Then we departed from Noblesville to Collierville,
TN. Arrived in time for Frank to enjoy a southern birthday
dinner of his mother’s homemade fried chicken, okra, and
mashed potatoes (and some champagne). Back to Dallas at
the end of the week.
Total miles driven: 2,292. Average MPG: 40.2. No
speeding tickets. Sorry, we didn’t take a Porsche on this
road trip, drove the VW Passat TDI. Next road trip will be
in a Porsche. Meanwhile, this was a great opportunity to get
out for a change of scenery and to see some people we had
not seen for a while. Phone calls, Zoom calls, Facebook
group calls, etc. are all great, but sometimes you just need a
bit more personal interaction. Everyone has their own
comfort level, but this worked for us! We travelled at our
own pace, in the safety
of our own car, avoided
as much as possible,
and wore a mask when
appropriate. Stay safe
COVID-19 Updates for Maverick Region
Maverick Region COVID Communication Chair, Wendy Shoffit
Well, as you know, there has been good news and
bad news this past month related to COVID-19. First
the bad: apparently, we Texans have been “bad puddy
tats” who haven’t been properly socially distancing,
wearing masks, and keeping healthy. So, positive test
results for this have been spiking since the latter part of
June. I think everyone has been tired of being cooped
up and are desperate to get out, not always making the
best decisions. So now Governor Abbott has mandated
mask wearing and is closing some businesses again. We
will see if more closings will happen or if we can reverse
The good news is that we Mavericks have successfully
had a few events and we’ve generally had good luck
with people behaving. People haven’t minded signing
the communicable disease waiver, as we have 128
people who have signed to date. I think it’s a small price
to pay to be able to gather with your PCA friends at
tours and happy hours. The one thing I ask for future
signers: pretty please with sugar on top print your name
LEGIBLY. Your signature can be on par with doctors,
but the printed version needs to be readable. Take your
time. You just need to sign it once. Please and thank you!
The future of events depends largely on the local
governing bodies and their restrictions. If they ban
large events outright, we obviously need to cancel
some. Just know we will do everything we can to meet
government regulations to meet safely and to protect all
our members. We will do our best to keep you informed
about events that can happen and which cannot.
Be healthy and well!
COVID Communications Chair
MAV OF THE MONTH:
Julia has been with the PCA a little over 4 years. Julia has been a true
Porsche fan dating back more years than I’m sure she’d like to say. When
going to any of the club events, she’s not content with riding as navigator in
her husband’s 911 SC, no she gets behind the wheel of her 1988 Guards
Red 944 and drafts behind him. Other times you might find her in the
driver’s seat of her Macan. Julia is always helping out at many of our Social
events putting her loving touch on what she does with that friendly smile.
Most recently she has teamed up with JimmyG our Charity Chair and his
wife Phyllis on a great cause. They have worked together to organize a fund
raiser in conjunction with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
Julia helped design and organize the sales of the New Porsche logo t-shirts
substituting the O in Porsche to the pink ribbon. You may have seen a few
of these great looking shirts at the June Mavs & Mochas where she helped
raise close to $600. If you haven’t purchased yet or made a donation, visit
http://mav.pca.org/go/hope to help the club reach their goal of $2,500. This
amount will allow us to pack 50 “Hope Kits” that each include a personal
note from the packer with all the necessary items to support and care for
someone battling breast cancer. I’m always so happy to see the different
roads we take to help others while Driving Friendships. These are
outstanding examples of how our club stays Fueled By Volunteers. Please
join me in Congratulating Julia as our Maverick of the Month.

Tech session recap: Fifth Gear (via Zoom)
by Micheal Baynton, Tech Sessions Co-chair
photo provided by Fifth Gear and Bill Kruder
It’s too bad that Mazda has trademarked the phrase
“Zoom Zoom”—it would have been the perfect title for
this month’s tech article. So just close your eyes for a sec
and imagine that I usurped it anyway…
Yes, even our tech sessions have been drastically affected
by Covid, so for the safety of our members and vendors,
we went online in July and held our first-ever virtual tech
session on Saturday, July 11 via Zoom. Our host was Fifth
Gear in Lewisville (FYI--they also have a facility in Argyle.),
and it was a resounding success based on feedback from
our members that signed up and watched.
Fifth Gear presented a comprehensive overview of
Porsche maintenance facts and myths, covering everything
from oil change schedules and suggested brands, fluid
replacement intervals, IMS concerns, and a variety of
other topics. The online chat feature was used to great
success to answer members’ questions in real time, and
Fifth Gear even had a garage full of Porsches available
for hands-on show-and-tell. Their experts were able to
climb into and under cars to highlight various aspects of
maintenance requirements and offered a lot of practical
tips and tricks. They answered as many questions as
possible during our allotted time, and even stayed late
in the chat to answer additional questions. To top things
off, they awarded premium gift certificates for the four
best online questions PLUS $100 gift certificates to lucky
members who signed up for the session—a very gracious
gesture! Many thanks to everyone at Fifth Gear that
accepted this challenge and committed to moving this
tech session from shop to screen.
As we look to the rest of the year, we hope to get back to “live”
sessions as soon as it is safe to do so. If we can find additional
informative topics that we can practically and thoroughly present
via Zoom, we will definitely bring those to you as well. We will
update our tech session calendar on our site and will keep you
informed via social media. In the meantime, stay safe and Zoom!

You might have seen some “pop-ups” posted on social media. These are
not club affiliated events, just enthusiasts that have gotten together with
friends to create a safe place to share stories and get some relief from the
day to day grind. Coffee and cars, but not Cars and Coffee; think much,
much smaller. Some meet every week and others happen more
spontaneously. They all have Porsches in common but they aren’t
exclusive, come as you are and meet some new friends.

Never Say Forever . . .
by Robert Turner
What defines a “keeper,” a forever car? What makes
you want to hold on to a rolling piece of steel, rubber,
plastic, and fabric when the rust sets in, the trim sags, the
motor is telling you it needs some TLC, or it’s just begging
you to take it out on the road and thrash it? What make
you want to keep it? Is it sentimentality or an investment
or has it become part of the family? Porsche AG tells us
that over 70% of Porsches manufactured are still on the
road. So, for many of us, the Porsche sitting in the garage
is our forever car.
Me? Not so much. I’ve never been the sentimental sort
when it comes to cars. Do I miss several of the Porsches I’ve
bought and sold? You bet! That ’76 930 Turbo Carrera?
Yep! Or how about the slate-gray metallic ’93 968. Oh
yeah. Or LMNHED (Lemonhead) 1 – the ’02 Boxster S in
Speed Yellow with factory speedster humps. Definitely. I
want that one back for sure. But every time I have declared
a car a keeper, a forever car – well, its days are numbered.
I’ve owned a lot of cars; seems like there is a new one
in the garage all the time. Funny thing though: a majority
were used (or maybe it’s more politically correct to say
“pre-owned”). What does this list say about us and our
automotive choices? Well except for Porsches, we get tired
of cars pretty fast. We say we’re going to keep them forever,
but don’t, and for the most part have owned a little bit of
everything. But I will say that when I sell a car, it’s usually
in much better shape than when I bought it. Not bragging,
but buying one of my cars is a good idea. Why? It will be
spotlessly clean, the maintenance will be up to date and
(especially with the Porsches) it may have some very tasty
You see, when it comes to Porsches, I have a problem.
I call it the Slippery Slope — I can’t help myself, I just
have to make the car better. My wife commented about my
“hobby” and noted that my automotive excess tended to
be very expensive. “But at least I’m not addicted to golf!”
I proudly pointed out, and then went on to say that at least
she was not a golf widow. No, she countered, she was a
garage widow – which amounts to same thing and based
on the cost of Porsches plus mods, she pointed out that we
would probably come out ahead if I started playing golf
2-3 times a week. Hmmm, she had me there . . . .
So I thought I would compile a list of all the vehicles
we have owned or been assigned (meaning company cars)
since my first 1965 Ford Mustang (listed in chronological
order from first vehicle owned to most recent). This list
includes the cars my wife drove up to and when we met, as
well as the cars that I have purchased for my two sons (but
still held the title). It is quite a long list. There are some
pretty bad vehicles along the way - but some really good
ones too - so enjoy.
1. 1965 Ford Mustang (my first car, light green, 289
V8 with factory 4-speed)
2. 1975 Ford Thunderbird (my wife’s first car)
3. 1972 Chevy Vega (I drove this for six months until
the motor let go)
4. 1980 Puch Moped (really awful college
transportation, but dirt cheap)
5. 1976 Honda CB 400F (upgrade from Puch; rode it
from upstate NY to TX)
6. 1979 Fiat Strada (car parents gave me to get me
away from the cycle)
7. 1972 Porsche 914 (1st Porsche; whole stories about this one)
8. 1985 Suzuki GS550E (after Porsche 914 rusted
away, it was my main ride)
9. 1980 Ford Thunderbird (wife’s second car)
10. 1965 Ford Mustang (different from one listed
above; split time with Suzuki)
11. 1986 Acura Integra (1st new car! Yeah, traded in
the Suzuki on it)
12. 1990 Acura Integra ES (2nd new car)
13. 1986 Nissan Pulsar (ouch, we had one of those –
actually was my wife’s car)
14. 1987 Porsche 944S (2nd Porsche; our first son
rode around in this)
15. 1990 Ford Aerostar Minivan (company car; yuck,
16. 1993 Mazda 626 (leveraged a poopy diaper to get
a deal on this)
17. 1993 Dodge Caravan (company car, meh…)
18. 1990 BMW 525i (our first Beemer)
19. 1996 Dodge Caravan (company car, meh x2)
20. 1999 Ford Explorer (great story about this one.
Look for the new e-book Kindle release)
21. 1999 Dodge Intrepid (company car; it was purple
and we had it six weeks)
22. 1999 BMW 528i (another great story included in
upcoming Kindle release)
23. 1976 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera 930 (BAD BOY,
what ‘cha gonna do!?)
24. 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo 951 (1st track car)
25. 2001 Ford Excursion (needed to tow track car
above to the track – duh)
26. 1999 Porsche Boxster (Bad Boy=Garage queen,
951=Track Car, Boxster=Fun)
27. 1992 BMW 525i Touring (another great story in
the upcoming Kindle eBook)
28. 2001 Volvo S60 (another short-timer; it came and
29. 1983 Mercedes 230E (Bullet; great stories abound)
30. 2005 Honda CR-V (meh!)
31. 2006 Audi A3 (answer when told to get rid of
930, 951, and Boxster)
32. 2007 Honda CR-V (meh x2!)
33. 2004 VW Touareg V8 (nice SUV if we could keep
34. 1992 Mazda Miata (1st Miata track car)
35. 1993 Porsche 968 (yeah, I know, should have kept
36. 2001 Porsche Boxster S (1st yellow one, totaled at
Boxstoberfest no less)
37. 2007 Ford F-150 (older son’s 1st car)
38. 1995 Jeep Wrangler Sahara (younger son’s 1st car)
39. 2007 VW Passat (answer to Touareg, was
supposed to be a keeper)
40. 2006 Porsche Cayman S (properly set up for track events)
41. 2008 VW GTI (older son’s 2nd car)
42. 2004 Porsche Cayenne (new tires for Passat meant
its days were numbered)
43. Porsche 944 Turbo (another 951 track car; fun to
drive, but always broken)
44. 2007 BMW 530i (replaced the Jeep, younger son’s
45. 2002 Porsche Boxster S (the red one; strangely I
never bonded with this one)
46. 2013 Mini Cooper Countryman (traded GTI for
47. 2006 Mini Cooper S JCW GP Kit (#1393 of 2015
built; loved this Mini rocket)
48. 1999 Mazda Miata (The Beast; test platform for
Track Dog Racing)
49. 2013 Ford F-150 Platinum (towed The Beast to
and from track)
50. 2015 Jeep Cherokee (oldest son’s current car)
51. 2002 Porsche Boxster S (LMNHED 1, I want this
52. Hyundai Elantra GT (youngest son’s current car)
53. 2014 Porsche Cayman S (Lemon Head 2, not
labeled a forever car;-)
54. 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel (replaced Mini,
So, a couple of observations.
My first company car was a Ford
Aerostar minivan, which for some
reason my father-in-law insisted on
calling an Astroloid. Nowadays,
when I see a clapped-out Aerostar/
Astroloid creeping down the street
I wonder how it’s still on the road.
They all have a rusted patina that
just screams “please take me to the
nearest junkyard.” Come to think
of it, back when I drove mine, I
wonder how it stayed on the road.
It was beyond terrible. The shortest
time I “owned” a car? Six weeks. A
colleague ordered a purple Dodge
Intrepid and left the company
shortly after he took delivery. Since
my lease was up, I got stuck with it.
I left the company six weeks later.
My about-to-be ex-boss asked me if
I was leaving because of the purple
car? I said yes – paused – then
laughed. But really, that car was
cursed. The longest we have owned
a car? My wife’s Mini Countryman.
It stayed with us over five years.
But, good news, it was replaced
with the Cayenne Diesel.
Wow, that is quite a list! Over
50+ cars in a lifetime. And I have
no doubt that 60 is easily attainable
(I am sure my wife is cringing as she
reads this). So tell me, what should
our 55th car be? What Porsche will
I be adding to the collection next?
Oh, and I have the contact info of
the couple that bought LMNHED
1 - just saying.
And on that exhaust note . . . .
Porsche Service: Water Drain Service
by Steven Taylor, Porsche Dallas
photo provided by Mike O’Hare
At Park Place Porsche in Dallas, we recognize your
vehicle requires factory-certified service expertise.
That’s what you’ll find at Park Place. With specialized
technicians using state-of-the-art equipment in advanced
service bays to keep your car running like new.
To keep your Porsche running at a high-performance
level, it is important to understand your vehicle’s needs-
such as a drain clean service. This includes clearing and
testing all of the water drains in the vehicle.
Steven Taylor, Shop Foreman Park Place Porsche,
breaks down how significant a drain clean service is for
“This service is important to get done because over
time leaves, pollen and general debris will clog the
drains. Once the drains are clogged, water will begin to
back up. When this occurs, there is a high potential that
the water will begin to enter the interior of the vehicle
because of the inability to runoff. This generally will
lead to costly repairs of not only drying the interior, but
replacing electrical control units.”
A drain clean service is recommend as an annual
or semi-annual service depending on how susceptible
your vehicle is to debris. Neighborhoods with heavy
foliage are more susceptible to creating this issue for

Covid-19 Pandemic directives remained throughout
June in the DFW area. For the most part, everyone on site
was courteous and respectful, followed the special rules
appropriately and adapted to make it work for all of us.
Equipe Rapide managed to fit 600 timed runs into a little
over six hours!
P0 - 'PCA Zero'
This course was made up of a tight and technical first
1/3, and very fast middle section, and a fast, technical
slalom final 1/3. Of a total of 136 entrants, we had 18 preregistered
Porsche drivers, but only 11 made it to the event.

Maverick Marktpreis: 911 SC
by Peter Wen
In the September 2018 issue of Slipstream, we reviewed the then, red-hot 911 SC. The second generation 911
Super Carrera had an incredible 10-year run, more than doubling in value from 2008 to 2018. Since then, the market
has stabilized. According to Hagerty, the average SC value is now $33,000, down from $33,500 two years ago.
The Super Carrera, or SC, was produced from ’78 to ’83, in the middle of the impact-bumper generation 911
production. With its superb 3.0L engine, a total of 57,890 SCs were produced.
SC Coupe 1978 - 1983 $22k-$50k
SC Targa 1978 - 1983 $20k-$45k
SC Cabriolet 1983 $19k-$44k

Porsche introduced 911 SC Cabriolet in 1983. It
was Porsche's first convertible since the 356 of the
mid-1960s. Cabriolet versions of the 911 have been
offered ever since.

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by Robert Kendrick
Sometimes friendships take a
while to form. This person and
I first met at Cars & Coffee back
in 2009. Both of us would show
up early, chat for a bit, and walk
the cars; then, when it was over we
would go our separate ways. Next
month we’d do the same, until one
month he wasn’t there. Several
months passed, and then like out
of nowhere, one month he’s back.
Heck, I thought he moved away
(laughing), but no, he had hip
surgery, not just once but
twice. Needless to say, we
picked up where we left off.
Fast forward to spring
of 2014: I had brought a
cigar to the event and as we
were leaving he said, “Hey,
I enjoy cigars - maybe we
should do that some time.”
Well, guys being guys, we
don’t exchange numbers –
heck, you have to be careful,
he could be crazy (laughing).
It’s not until the next couple
of C&C’s that we actually
do exchange numbers,
and as they say, the rest is
friendship history. As I often
kid, most people aren’t this
So here is the next in my
series of “conversations” I would
like to share with you . . .
Robert Kendrick, member since 2015
Owner, 2005 996 Turbo S and
2016 Macan Turbo
Bill Kruder: So I usually start with
where are you from, but frankly
everyone wants to know: how the
heck do you fit (mind you he is 6’
9”) in your 996?
Robert Kendrick: Ha, yes that is
always the first thing people ask me
when they see me climb out of my
car! The secret is manual seats. My
red 996 had power seats, and I had
to have Stuarts move the rails back to
get me the extra three inches I needed.
My 996 turbo comes with sports
seats, which are manual, and they
have plenty of room to move back.
BK: Well ok then! Now that we
have that out of the way, where are
RK: I was born in Paris - yes that
one in France. I lived there until I
was four years old. We then moved
to North Carolina, where my dad’s

family was. From there we moved
to Pensacola, Florida then finally
settling in Jacksonville, Florida
when I was six years old.
BK: Paris, France huh?
RK: Yes, my dad was in the Air
Force, then called the Army Air
Corps. He was actually stationed at
Pearl Harbor when it was attacked.
He then was deployed to the Pacific
and eventually sent to Paris as part
of the reconstruction of France, and
that’s when he met my mom.
BK: So your dad spoke French?
RK: Oh no, not a word! Matter of fact, I
didn’t speak English and my mom didn’t
either (laughing). When we moved to
the states it was pretty strange as my
dad brought us home to his family, and
for the life of me I don’t recall how we
BK: But Jacksonville is what you
RK: It is! Like I said I was six years
old when we moved there so I went
to Catholic grammar school and
high school there. I didn’t
stray far for college either,
attending University of
Florida in Gainesville, which
is only about 90 minutes
southwest of Jacksonville.
BK: We have something in
common about our college
years and our job in college
RK: Yes we do! I worked at
the local JC Penney Store in
the catalog department. Had
I stayed I could have been
BK: Yes, I worked at a JC
Penney store in Chicago during
college and retired from the
company 40 years later.
BK: What did you study in college
RK: I received my degree in
Advertising with a minor in Business.
BK: I know you enjoy drawing - is
that why you chose Advertising?
RK: I think that had something to
do with it. I have always enjoyed
sketching. I had an uncle who
taught art at Piedmont College
in North Carolina, and I think I
picked up that gene from him. As it
turns out I really do enjoy drawing
or sketching, and still do to this
day, using color pencil and acrylic
BK: So that’s what you went into after graduating?
RK: No, I never did. I wasn’t really sure what I would do,
so my first job out of college was as an insurance adjuster in
Rome – no, not that one (laughing) – Rome, Georgia.
BK: How did you end up in DFW?
RK: Well it sure was a winding road, but after living in Rome,
I found myself taking a job in Jacksonville. Then it was off
to New York City, Orlando, Dallas (the first time in 1994),
Greensboro, and then back to
Dallas in 2001.
BK: Why did you leave and
RK: Well I was here for three
years, but then my dad became
ill so I took a job in Greensboro
to be closer to my parents. It
went from a 14-hour drive to
about six hours.
BK: So when and how did you
and your wife Laurie meet?
RK: We were kind of introduced by a mutual friend who
set us up on a blind date. This was in 1996 during my
first stay here. Then in 1997 I moved to Greensboro
and we did the long distance thing for a bit; then stuff
happened and we stopped. As it turned out, my dad
passed away in 2000 and Laurie came out to see me.
what I had earlier, but this one was modified. We would
refer to it as the “space shuttle” as it had some real
quirky things done to increase its performance.
BK: Ok, so most people don’t know about your hobby?
Time to tell.
RK: It would be my sports memorabilia collection;
specifically it’s a collection of full size football helmets.
Some years back Laurie gifted me a NY Giants helmet
signed by Pat Summerall, who
played for them as the kicker
from 1958-61, and which
happened to be his greatest
years (1959). From there it has
just kind of grown to 45-50 of
them, all signed by the players I
admired growing up or watching
in college or the NFL.
BK: So I have to ask, what is
your most prized helmet?
RK: Easy! It’s signed by Emmitt
Smith. Not only was he the
NFL’s all-time leading rusher,
but most importantly he’s a GATOR.
And there you have it . . . Driving Friendships!
BK: When did you get married then?
RK: We dated for about four years total; then in 2002 we
got married about a year after I had moved back to Dallas.
BK: Ok let’s switch gears and talk cars. What was your
RK: Oh geez - it was my neighbor’s 1968 Plymouth
Satellite; it had a 273 CI V8 and was metallic mint green.
BK: So why Porsche?
RK: Easy! What kid doesn’t dream of having one, and
heck, Brumos was in Jacksonville!
BK: First Porsche?
RK: That was in 1990. It was an ‘86 944 Turbo and it was a
Brumos dealer car. I actually had seen an ad for a 928; they
were sitting next to each other. My friend who was with me
said, “You know how expensive those water pumps are?”
Well I bought the 944; I had it for three years.
BK: Then what?
RK: Well I had several other non-Porsche cars, including
a Jeep. My next Porsche was the 1999 996, with a
supercharger of all things. From there I sold it and
bought a 2004 Signal Yellow C4S. During the same
time as the ‘04 I bought an ‘86 944 Turbo, much like

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
If you’ve ever seen Bring-a-Trailer (bringatrailer.com)
you know. If you haven’t, you probably shouldn’t. Its
founder describes it as a place where “every car you see on
the site is one we wish we could have”. Dangerous words
in some households. Just the other day while checking
my email I saw a car listed on BaT that resembled one
I owned earlier in life and was drawn in to peruse the
site I promise to quit over and over. It should be easy to
unsubscribe from the emails, but it isn’t. It’s kind of like
having junk food in the house. It did raise an interesting
question though: why do we buy the cars we buy? Why
do we want to even want to buy cars in the first place?
To many buying a car is terrifying. But I’d wager we
aren’t those people. It might get a little tense during
negotiation, and we might second guess the leather
wrapped climate controls, but by and large it’s an
exhilarating experience eclipsed only by delivery and the
drive home. But why do we buy what we buy, and why oh
why do we need more than one? We’ve all heard the
psychology of a collector: 40-60 years old buying what
they longed for in high school. But that really doesn’t
begin to explain why. For some collectors it is investment
and for others it’s the thrill of the chase, the thrill of the
deal. There are lots of other solid investments around,
although paintings don’t make good noises. I’ve spoken
to quite a few of you about why you chose Porsche. The
reasons vary but are repeated: heritage, engineering,
driving dynamics...but I think it comes down to one thing.
The looks drew you in
and the rest made you
comfortable. Lust makes
us do funny things. I
swear I once bought a
Volvo solely for the space
ball shifter. We don’t
shine up our new cars
because it makes them
more comfortable or
worry about the patina
on our old cars because it
makes them faster. It’s
because we just like what
they look like. And that’s okay. No matter what got you
into your Porsche, we’re glad you’re here. So go out there
and live out your best Sixteen Candles or Steve McQueen
Le Mans fantasy, we won’t judge. Just enjoy the drive.
