They do absolutely nothing for me christine, awful shaped things with disgusting interiors that sound like a bag of wank.

If you played top trumps as a kid, it was always good to have the 911 card though . Unless the other bloke had Lamborghini Countach... :D

Why is it that the modifiers always mess up nice rare examples rather than building their "individual" idea on a rough one.
Unfucked cars are easier to work on. You can set straight into sanding the paint off and cutting the springs without worrying about the floors falling out.
1976 Triumph Dolomite 1850HL - Long term fucked.
1977 Triumph Dolomite 1300 - Short term fucked.
1983 Triumph Acclaim L - Soon to be fucked.

A "My other car is a shitbox" sticker on the P̶o̶r̶s̶c̶h̶e̶ Caddy would have been better :-)

He said 928, not 911.

They're an absolute monster... I once had a go in a correctly-gearboxed (i.e. manual) one and it was a total flying machine.

I would destroy my tongue licking the absolute fuck out of a nice manual 928 nowadays.
On the road:
1998 Disco 4.0 V8 (manual)
1986 Honda CBX750F

Running but need fettling:
1994 Vauxhall Calibra 3.0 V6
1991 Maserati 222 SE
1990 Yamaha XJ900F
1982 Suzuki GSX1100SZ Katana

I used to get a lift to work with a contractor who had one of these 928 Porkers. A totally unmessed with basic one. I absolutely adored that thing. There is one in my fantasy garage for sure.
