This is a bitter sweet video for me to watch. No, it’s worse than that. it’s actually a little painful. The video itself is a lovely piece, telling the really nice story of a guy who managed to buy himself a Porsche 930 Turbo thirty years after he first saw that very car. It’s a cool story, so grab a coffee and take a load off.
For me, it’s a reminded of the 930 Turbo I used to own. The same body style, the same deep front spoiler that houses an additional oil cooler, nornally a tell tale sign of a factory engine upgrade, as mine was. The soundtrack gets me too. The crackling burble on the overrun as he [asses the camera and the raw growl of the drive by noise. For me, it’s that feeling you get when spotting your ex-girlfriend across the room, but with her new partner. Only the memory of the aroma isn’t perfume, it’s that red hot oil smell you get through the vents after a good blast along your favourite road.
I love this video and I miss my 930 Turbo. I hope it doesn’t take me thirty years to find a way to buy her back.
