Default A dream come true...

When I was a teenager, I called Porsche and pretended to be a doctor interested in learning more about their 911s.

A few weeks later, a package containing a VHS video and a brochure for the 993 arrived. The way the pamphlet was stapled, it opened to a Polar Silver with Black Interior Carrera 4S.





My heart sank. I fell in love. I set out on a mission to own it and fortunately, years later, I did!

I watched various Porsches come and go, but none of them ever moved me in the same way...until the Carrera GT.

I would regularly and frequently watch the Top Gear episode and take delight in Clarkson's expression of how much he enjoyed this car. I dreamt about owning a machine that is art, mechanical ingenuity and... soul?

Today, that dream came true.

Silver, black, 8600 miles.

I plan on driving it every opportunity I can.... and sharing the experience with everyone who asks for a ride!


Waiting for it to be unloaded!




All the Canadian customs agents wanted to take a look



The Canadians in the Porsche community will appreciate the irony of having Canadian Tire perform the Federal inspection... »\_(ツ)_/»

Where did it come from? Why didn't you go for the ones already in Canada?

Love the story...one to which we can all closely relate for sure.

The car is stellar and you will find it hard to believe that they actually sold these to anyone who wanted one!

Congrats and thanks for sharing the very special story. Amazed that you still have the 993-4S catalog in hand.

You will absolutely not be disappointed in the CGT.
