At various times in my 20s I owned both 1.7L and 2.0L 914s. During that time I always thought, man when I'm pulling down serious money, I'm going to have a 914/6. Never did come to fruition however. Many sports cars, including some other Porsches, graced my garage over the decades but never a 914/6.

In late 2016, I started looking for a car to replace my recently departed Jaguar XKR and, frankly, owning another Porsche never entered my mind. Was mostly considering an Aston Martin Vantage v8 coupe or Lotus Evora. Happened across a couple of Boxsters while doing some random 'what other cars might be interesting' perusing and I remembered my promise to myself about the long forgotten 914/6. For me, the Boxster was a modern day version of the car I thought I would someday own, and it was a circle of life kind of thing that brought me back to the marque that started me on my long and satisfying sports car journey. Started looking for a 2009 or 2010 PDK Boxster S then came across the ad for my 2004 986 550 SE. Love at first sight and the rest is history
