Bought my first 911 in 1984, a 1978 911SC at 29. Bought my first brand new Porsche in 1995, a 993. At 63, and privileged to own most all the 911 models from 1968 to 2017, I have a 1997C4S as my keeper. A great blend of old and new in one package.

39. Bought the 993 at 34. First introduced to 911s at 16. Rebuilt a long hood and it's been with us since 1995. I got bitten by the air cooled cars at a young age and will always own at least 1.

Turned 30 a few months ago, but acquired my 993 7 years ago (when market values were much much more affordable!)

Thanks for participating everyone! I’m actually surprised by the fairly even distribution over almost 40 years! That is very good for the hobby long term. In the vintage motorcycle and muscle car hobbies, interest in people under 50 is very low.

53, bought my first 911 (3.2 sport) when I was 29 and got my 993 nineteen years ago. I still love it to bits and now have an E46 M3 to keep it company.

Default Age matters

Highly discriminatory,.!
I am soon to be 75, bought the car when I was 69, having sold a '94 monster machine, a ZR1 which I raced. Both cars 6-speeds and modified
I drive "aggressively"per others.
Where's the > 70-category? Discount on PCA dues, adult diapers?

Sorry FSA! I thought that I could only use 4 categories, so the 20’s and 70’s got left out in the cold!
