After a bad riding accident Lisa Taylor swapped horses for Porsches, and built up a secret collection worth drooling over. Though she had owned Porsches since the early 1980s, a 911 replaced her first-generation RX-7 in 1981, it wasn’t until later that Lisa caught the collecting bug. Her current collection is nothing less than impressive. In addition to a handful of air-cooled Porsches, including an Oslo Blue 2.7RS, Lisa’s collection includes numerous modern GT-series models. After giving up horse racing Lisa purchased a black and orange 997 GT3 RS from no less than Patrick Dempsey, and things only spiraled from there.
Lisa is a car enthusiast through and through. She and her father built her first car in the 1970s, an Aztec kit car (which looks like this, for the uninitiated), and has owned performance cars of one sort or another ever since. Lisa won’t confess exactly how many cars she owns, preferring the secret to overt bragging. She does allude to Mclarens and Acura NSXs also in the collection, and what is on display ticks all the right boxes.
Lisa’s tastes run towards high performance models in extremely extroverted colors. While mint green, Rubystone Red, Amethyst Metallic and vivid oranges might not be best for keeping a low profile, they certainly suit the cars in her collection beautifully. One 911 even appears to be color matched to Bianchi Celeste Green rather than a Mint from the Porsche catalog.
Did we mention that all of Lisa’s cars wear Michelin tires? Kudos, Lisa, and we certainly wouldn’t mind if you kept showing off your collection a little bit at a time for a long time to come.
