In today’s PorscheCooled Podcast Michael presents episode 72 of owner stories with Amanda from Colorado in the U.S. Amanda’s car journey started when she was only 4 when her dad bought a Mitsubishi Eclipse. A car Amanda has fond memories of pretending to drive like a racing driver. Later in life, and inspired by a ‘Fast and the Furious’, Amanda wanted a Charger. In 2013 her wish came true with a Dodge Charger 100th anniversary edition. A car Amanda enjoyed for around 6 years and drove it all over the country.
Amanda mentions she knew little about German cars, but that changed after an Audi Experience Day at Circuit of the Americas in an R8. A BMW experience in M Cars followed and Amanda’s (and her Husbands) love of German cars began.
So, what followed? A BMW X3 M40i, a car Amanda took to the track. It was at these track days where she started noticing the Porsches. The inevitable followed. In 2020 the first 911 entered the garage, a 2002 Carrera 4 996 Cabriolet - manual and in Arctic Silver. This was going to be Amanda and her husbands’ ‘fun’ car. Not to mention it became the car Amanda learnt to drive stick in. It doesn’t end there. In late 2002, Amanda and her husband purchased a black 2007 911 Turbo in manual. Both practical cars were now gone, and the Porsches were daily driven with snow tyres when needed. Recently the 997 Turbo has been replaced with a very special 2022 Porsche 718 Spyder, Shark Blue, Manual with LWB’s.
