We were talking with friends the other day and the following hypothetical question was asked, “If you had an unlimited budget but space for only five (5) Porsches, which five Porsches would you buy?”
After discussing it for a few minutes, we decided that any Porsche could be included, even if there was no way it would ever be put up for sale. This is a hypothetical exercise after all.
It’s an easy question to answer, right? Not for us. We started right out and before we knew it, we had filled the garage and there were other cars we still wanted. What to do, what to do? You can’t build a bigger garage, you can’t swap out cars, this is a one time opportunity so you have to take you time and fill your garage accordingly. Do you want to drive these cars or just stare at them? Are you a racer, or do you want daily drivers?
Eventually we were able to distill things down and come up with a good mix that fits our taste. Here’s how we would fill the garage at 993C4S. How would you fill yours?
1948 Gmund No. 1
1973 Porsche 911 S
917/20 Pink Pig
2008 Porsche 997 Turbo Cabriolet
Our dream garage might not match yours, but here is our reasoning behind the choices.
- Gmund: For the history as this started it all
- 911 S: For the design and driveability
- 917/20: For the paint-job and really, really fast DE events
- Ruf CTR Yellowbird: Top speed of 211mph and street legal
- New 997 Turbo Cabriolet: Direct Injection + PDK = Daily driver
Now it’s your turn. Everyone has different tastes, and we think you’ll find it a challenging exercise. Take some time, remember anything Porsche goes and your budget is unlimited but you can only choose FIVE. Let us know how you would fill your dream garage.
