In today’s PorscheCooled Podcast Michael presents episode 73 of owner stories with Dan from New York in the U.S. Dan grew up in the age of the posters on the wall but it was the Porsche 928 scene in the movie Scarface that left an impression. in college his roommate’s dad coincidentally owned a couple of Porsche 928s. Dans Dad had a few cool cars when he was growing up including a manual Chevy Nova, Nissan 240Z and an early 80’s Camaro. The Camaro Dan would drive when he his dad was away and really enjoyed driving. His dad also gave him a ‘71 Mercury Cougar XR-7 convertible, which gave Dan the ‘convertible bug’.
Moving to New York straight out of school the need for a car diminished. It wasn’t until Dan got married and moved to Long Island that he needed a car again. His Jeep came first, but Dan really wanted a convertible. A few test drives later he decided on ‘97 986 Boxster 2.5. This was in 2002 and is a car that still puts a smile on Dans face 20 years later. A car that opened Dan up to the unexpected and enjoyable Porsche community.
Just under a year ago Dan decided to purchase a 911. A Porsche he has wanted for some time. After a long search Dan found just what he wanted, and in the right specification and options – a 2010 997.2 C4S manual in Carrara White. A car he is really having fun with and enjoying to the fullest.
