In today’s PorscheCooled Podcast Michael presents episode 71 of owner stories with David from Sydney, Australia. First Porsche memories? Well, apart from the model cars it was a 911 in a car book given to him by his parents. A book he still has and has now gifted to his daughter. David got to see his first 911 in real life at his dads panel shop – a 930 turbo.
David doesn’t miss any of his previous cars as ‘they were all pretty much shit boxes’, making his first Porsche even more special. In saying, that David was always into road bikes, especially riding sport bikes, having owned around 13 of them over the years.
David has a detailing business which he started straight out of school. Today David details a lot of nice cars, but it was until 2019 that he seriously started thinking the time was right to start looking for his ‘nice car’ - a 911. Originally David started searching for a 997 Carrera S but decided he wanted a 911 without any underlying issues, so he started looking at the 996 Turbo. A big decision as David has never spent that amount of money on a car before. Why the Turbo? Well, David thought why not go all in and buy a 911 with the bullet proof Mezger engine. At the end of 2019 David found his perfect 911 a well-documented 2001 996 Porsche 911 Turbo, manual in Meridian Metallic with RUF wheels and wing. It was a great day.
