My heart was racing as I ran back to the hotel to grab my camera not only did I spot a perfectly decked-out 2013 Panamera with tan interior fully loaded but a yellow 1996 Porsche 993 pulled in right next to it.
The owner entered a women’s clothing store and conveniently left the windows down so I could get a closer look. I can’t say the car is in mint condition but for a 1996 Porsche 993 it is still in beautiful shape. I waited respectfully to ask if I could take some shots of his car and ask questions, when he returned carrying a pink bag.
He seemed to be in a rush, which took me by surprise considering the enthusiasm I had for his Porsche. Most people stop what they’re doing, take a minute and chat. He proceeded however to walk around the driver-side while I tried to get a few questions in. He opened the trunk to place his pink bag inside with other pink bags. He told me he was christmas shopping for his wife.
“I got it at a police auction for cheap. It is the last of the air-cooled engines” he said. He didn’t talk for long. Simply jumped in, as if embarrassed by all the pink bags, started the car, and drove off. The engine didn’t sound completely tuned, judging by a loud rumbling that followed as he pulled away.
