Thumbs up Porsche Philosophy

This is my own way to understand this philosophy

THE PHILOSOPHY
Porsche represents far more than just an unmistakable trade name. It’s maximun exponent is the 911. Porsche is fascination. The 911 not only promises a world of experience. The myth becomes reality. Only then you can feel the power that is unique to Porsche – both active and attractive. The brand thus embodies the epitome of sporty driving and thinking. That is a real philosophy for us, the 911 lovers, pure Porsche, pure 911. When you've had the chance to see a nine-eleven for the first time, it probably changes your way of thinking about cars. The 911 is not a simply sport car, it's the myth 911. The longing to possess a 911 could become to transform into an obsession, or a 'beautiful' chronic disease... When you are seated at the commands of a 911 and you'd switch the engine on, you'll know that there is something different. It's characteristic flat-six engine sound is telling to us that we are in a real sport car. The '911 personality', is caused by the rear engine configuration. If you want to extract the most from the car, just driving it wouldn't be enough, you'll have to ride it as a pilot. The 911-concept has been enchanting all the Porsche 911 lovers far more than 40 years, and it's really alive more than never been thought before. Its uncomparable silhouette is another one of the 911 concept's elements. There are no similitudes to any other sporty car. 911 owners don't enjoy just driving it. They have fun contemplating the car after parked indeed. In fact we are talking about a mental sickness... a chronic desease. Imagine a sunny Sunday morning, an unfrequented road mountain, both the 911 and you... It's harmony, pleasure, symbiosis, everytime closer to eden, the nirvana of senses. The fascinating sense enkindled by the myth is over the good and evil, and even the love to sport cars. It's probably something that nobody could define and the 911 drivers reach to feel when the car is being driven. Am I crazy about the nine eleven? May be, ... But God bless Ferry Porsche.

I agreed with you, until you drive a nine eleven, you don´t know whats the meaning of the pleasure. You think that you can guess what is the feeling but everything turns different when you drive one, you are infected by the 911 virus.

One of the things that get you crazy is the engine sound. The sound of the nine eleven, particularly the air cooled is great, it's a deep sound, not as sharp as a Ferrari, but a sound with a great personality. When the car is idle his sound is like a million bubbles just in the back. I love this sound. This is why most of the time the hifi is off.

Another thing is it's style. It's impossible to let him away without a last sight.

You can drive him hard or get him to go for a relax ride, it's indifferent, the pleasure of driving a nine eleven is all you can need.

It's impossible to describe the emotion of driving a nine eleven. When you are driving one there are only three things:
  1. The nine eleven
  2. The road
  3. You

Guys ,

I agree with you in every sentence. When I drove first time a 911 I was stunned by the precise steering, handling and braking. You really can feel all the details of the road via steering wheel, also I love the looks and the raw sound of air cooled flat six.
Today again I drove my Carrera to work and I keep noticing that I automatically select the longest route with less traffic to work just because I so much love driving my 20-years-old 911.

My friend has 996 with sport exhaust and it sounds very good too but it's missing the rawness of air cooled flat-6. In my previos 911 SC I had really loud pipes and now I'm running stock exhaust, hopefully during the Autumn I'm able to fix this "issue".

I think Porsche is more than the 911, although many people don't think so.

For example, the 928 was far more advanced than the 911 of that era, and nobody seems to remember.... The 951 was very able to go faster than the 3.2 carrera, the 928 was as powerful as the 930, but easier to drive. Around 30% of the Porsche sold were 928/924/944/968, a respectable amount to be forgotten.

This doesn't mean that the 911 is not a great car, but it's only one of the Porsche models, not the only one.

Of course, no body can tell you than these cars aren`t Porsche, i like all , but i love 911, is a matter of heart, the mind does not much to do in this choice.

Mig17,
you are right that Porsche has made many great other automobiles than just 911. I just fell in love for 911 when I was 7 years old on holiday trip in Italy in ´84 when I got this Burrago 911 Carrera 3,2 scale model. I´m Finnish myself and in our forum there www.9xxfin.com majority of enthusiasts are driving 944 turbos. One reason is very high car taxation over there and the other is value for money. It is so easy to get 350 hp out from those babies and when upgrading the brakes and suspension, you get a very quick car. Some of the guys went to Nordschleife 2 weeks ago and they lapped in just over 8 minutes BtG.
I would like to own one of those too but now I just don´t have space for and cash for it. It will be even more valued car in future, same will happen and is already happening to 968 CS and 928 GT. But when I have to select just one, I go for 911 with 70% of other Porsche enthusiasts.

In my reckoning the word "Porsche" means a lot more than a car manufacturer. It is a dream, a step forward in one's life, a goal that I have been aiming to for a long time... I may be biased, due to my own circumstances, and, therefore, I cannot expect you to understand what Porsche cars mean to me. Nevertheless, this dream is getting closer, I can even hear my long-awaited Boxster's humming...

For those of you who do not know what I mean, let me tell you one thing. I have been cramming for years to become a diplomat. Eventually, I am on the brink of achieving my dream. I have been very close to it, but I haven't obtained it yet. As soon as I overcome current year's last obstacles, my life will radically change. Getting a Porsche car is, hence, linked to many other events that I have been waiting for for a long time, such as getting married to my uncomplaining fiancée or buying a new flat. In other words, a step forward in my life...

That is the reason why, in my opinion, Porsche is more than a sports car.

After this "unsmokable brick" (as Lopez Socasau would write in his "From Lost To The River" book), you know a bit more about me now, and what Porsche's philosophy means to me....

Greetings!
