Beautiful.

I'm all in the name for driving cars and not collecting them - I loath it when people buy a sports/super car and keep them locked away as an investment, as it's crime not to drive them. I saw an original 964 Turbo S with delivery miles on it, and it was a crying shame...

But, with this one, I'm not sure I'd want to drive it. Being such a unique, one-off and important car within Porsche's heritage, surely there has to be a one-off sacrifice here where the car is made purely as a collectors item? If someone bought this and kept it tucked away, for this one time I'd actually be fine with it.

Then again, I think Porsche had it in their mind that this is going to be a collectors car.

Gorgeous nonetheless.

Pretty sure this will end up in their museum.
