I've got something of a confession to make. Despite being an all-out movie buff, a Porsche fanatic, and a co-founder of Radwood, the festival that celebrates all things 80s and 90s automotive, I've never seen the early-career Tom Cruise vehicle Risky Business.

At this point a Panamera-based two-door car is purely theoretical. All we have to work with are fresh grindings from the rumor mill.

Last July, Porsche hauled a few of their large-and-in-charge off-roaders into the museum for a special exhibit on the history of Porsche's jacked-up four-wheel-drivers.

Germany’s Answer To The Muscle Car Question Is A Porsche 928
This 1980s Grand Touring icon of Porsche history has served its owner well in all its years. It's stacked up 220,000 miles, and he's regularly driven the 928 as a daily driver both before and after the Rotrex-style supercharger was added.

What Kind of Porsche Could you Buy for $180k Twenty Five Years Ago?
Wait, there was a Porsche for sale 25-years ago that cost $180k? No, not really. Instead, in 1994, the 928 GTS had an MSRP around $88k.
