Also good to see Porsche family

I saw this guy parked solo on the far end of the parking lot so I decided to let BlackBox keep him company. #PorscheFamily

Cool photo. I like the interesting purple plants as the background. Worked well with the black cars.

Looks to be an '89 but what the hell wheels are those??? Look like hubcaps.

Edit: Looks like D-90 wheels on a 964.

An '89-91, biggest giveaway being the "flag" door mirrors. My '91 has the Design90 wheels. Not a huge fan but they're far from the worst OE wheels.

I had a 89 C4 and the first thing I did was put so turbo twists on and changed out the flag mirrors for the later mirrors. Same guards red and black interior combo as yours.

Looking at that mid 911 next to the Box, the 911 is actually quite an odd looking car.
It's reminds me of a frog for some reason, but maybe I'm just strange.

That's funny. He parked way way way over there so no one would do what you just did. Nice!

Yes, but notice how he took up only one spot. If that was a 'Vette driver he would have angled in somewhere taking up 4 spots.

The 911 needs to de-amber.

Ironically the owner and I came out of the mall around the same time so we spoke briefly as we entered our vehicles and he was glad that I parked next to him.

Nice shots! Two beautiful examples there. Always fun to spot and acknowledge another Porsche on the road or parking lot.
