Grinning Ear to Ear
I've dreamt of having a Porsche 911 since my best friends dad took me and him for a ride in his in 1976. It seemed fitting that I should finally have my own to celebrate both the 911 and myself turning 50 last year. Few things give me more pleasure on an on-going basis. Every time I walk into my garage, every time I start the engine, every time my hands make a turn of the wheel, I grin ear to ear. It doesn't get any better!

Just purchased my first Porsche this summer. 911 Cabriolet 4S, triple black. Amazing the amount of happiness she provides.

I had a 1979 Porsche 928 and it was an outstanding car. The only bad thing was that a baby seat would not fit in the back seat! I still miss its V-8 burble, its instantaneous acceleration, its precise handling, and the safe, cocoon-like feeling it gave you.

Functional yet supremely desirable
I think the Porsche 911 is a design classic which lasted in its basic form for over 30 years yet still manages to be top of its class. Functional yet supremely desirable. Great engineering combined with great design. Great drive, great brand. And it’s unique - there’s nothing quite like it.

I couldn't beleive that I sold it...
Never thought I would own one some day, but finally, I did... Then, after a long relationship I couldn't beleive that I sold it. Not even two weeks had passed until I began to look for another Porsche.

The best noise
As a kid my agenda was full of Porsche pictures from news papers. Now I am the proud owner of the same one as in my agenda, but in real metal. Dreams can come through. It's even better, as it makes the best noise of the whole world.

The lifestyle that is me
I do not yet own the 911 but one day I will. It is the car of my dreams, it is the lifestyle that is me, it is the design that I love. It is the status of success that you get when you own one.

MY 911 Turbo is my baby. If you live in a cramped city like London, don't buy a dog buy a Porsche instead. And when your faithful Porsche breaks down or starts to look a little dog-eared, just trade it on for another one. Now I've had a Porsche I'll never go back...

Makes Harleys sound like toys
I have had a Porsche 928S4 for 3 years now and, not only is it the only car with a J-Lo back end, it is the most under-rated and magic secret I have ever driven. This after having had a BMW 333, a 735, a 740 and I still have a Lotus Europa and a Lotus Seven. That 5 litre exhaust note makes Harleys sound like toys!! All the best from South Africa.

Look and listen
Some things just make you smile. Getting into a car in the morning to start your hour long, 14 mile, commute to work, isn't one of them. My answer: Get a Porsche. Look and listen - beautiful.
