Out of the hottest red Porsche 911 4 I have ever seen steps a woman with such panache and charm that I have to approach her. I simply ask if I can take some pictures of her car and got a resounding “of course!” At 70 years old she is a stunner with her matching red jacket and scarf to compliment her red Porsche 911 4 perfectly. She begins to describe her issues with day-to-day shopping in the Targa and just how impractical it is.
“The trunk is in the front, it has no space, it basically holds one bag of groceries and that’s it. I carry an extra bag in the passenger side for shopping.” And then the story get’s interesting. “For shopping I use my four door Porsche I bought the Porsche Targa and the Porsche Panamera at the same time. The Panamera is great, I use it for big trips for groceries, except with it being a hatchback it get’s extremely hot inside.”
As she was describing her love affair with Porsche, her keys were waving around in her left hand. The Porsche logo with gold keychain glistening in the mid-day Florida light. I was hypnotized. Around her neck a gold amulet to match her earrings, her fingers waving around with big rocks on her fingers.
Money is no object for this retiree from the beach area. But what is most surprising is her choice of car for a seventy year old woman who clearly has good taste. “I don’t drive it like it needs to be driven.” she says. Secretly I was hoping she might just hand me the keys so I could, while she browsed the plaza. I began taking photos and got completely lost in the sea of Porsche red.
Just the fact that this woman chose a red Porsche Targa over everything else, and needed a “practical car” the Panamera four door Porsche as backup, says just how cool and interesting she really is.
