Dreaming of Owning a Porsche Becomes a Reality
Fifty years ago, the 911 hit the streets and was everything a driver or engineer could ever hope for. The 1964 Porsche 911 was a definitive sports car – then and now – with its distinguished shape, singular dynamics, and authoritative wail from the air-cooled flat-six. Generation after generation of 911s have become stronger, leaner and more beautiful than their ancestors without ever losing that timeless silhouette.
This is Jim Goodlett’s 28-year journey to own a Porsche 930. His 1984 gray market 930 Turbo is an exquisite example of a classic Porsche 911, but it also represents the accomplishment of a goal he set for himself as young man who could only dream of one day owning this supercar. For Jim, nothing on four wheels even comes close.
