Default a true thing of beauty...

visited dover castle today, and parked inside the grounds was this gorgeous, porsche speedster. my jaw was dragging on the floor as i glided over to it, camera in hand, eyes fixed on a car ive loved for many years. oh to own one of these rare classic beauties!

IQ to one side, there cant be a man on here that doesnt love her and all her well polished curves (drool)

please excuse the crude use of ms paint to delete the reg plate, i wished to preserve the owners privacy.

regards,
john

Thanks a cool looking car and you did a nice job on the shot. Do you know about what year this would be from?

I should be able to find out Jim, from the reg plate. Letters and numbers here will tell us the year the car was first registered. I'll look into it. Thank you for your kind words

Thanks John. It has to be a few years old.

this one is a later model but still dates as first registered in 1964. this model was originally released back in 1948 and discontinued in 1965 so what we have here is a young one, all be it older than me!

trivia moment: Eddie Murphy drives one in the movie 48 Hours. only his was a '57... oh, and it got blown to pieces!

Registered in 1964 that is a classic.

I still think my Honda CR-V will do better in the Ohio snow.

Thanks for the information John.

Wow wow these are such gorgeous cars. So often the ones I see are fake kit cars. This one appears genuine.
