When someone asks if you’d like drive a Porsche 993 for a classic Porsche/Ferrari morning run, what should you say? You say “Yes!”. Which is how i found myself behind the wheel of the Yellow Banana a couple of weekends back.
Our little 993 Cabriolet was the acting camera-car for the morning and i was happily camped behind the wheel with pilot duties. Which was also why i managed to grab a brief solo drive session prior to this event.
Kudos to the organizers of this drive for assembling together what i think is the largest convoy of old-school Stuttgart and Maranello sportscars our little country has ever seen, i’m guessing that took some bits of gentle persuasion.
A trio of lovely white beauties. With a special shout out for that sexy Speedster. 1 of 2 remaining in Singapore.
Speedster 2 of 2 soon joined in the waiting area.
When i was a young kid, i used to think that Porsche 911s had a strange shape with a windscreen that just looked too upright, the Speedster changed that view totally with it’s ridiculously short and raked windscreen, and i was enthralled. I remember buying a Tamiya 1/24 kit of one of these, it was a “Snap-Loc” model kit, for people like me with not much talent or luck for putting those things together.
Slowly, more and more Porsches and Ferraris started entering the carpark and it really was a sight to behold.
F355, one of my hero cars. Oh what a glorious noise these machines made when on the move.
They’re all about that bass, bout that bass…
The first Ferrari i laid eyes upon as a kid. Been in love ever since, still can’t afford one.
While the Ferraris are just sex on wheels with many causing Love-at-first-sight syndromes, i find that classic Porsches and 911s on the other hand, sort of grow on you more and more every year.
The Dirty Martini sporting some spiffy raised white lettering tire stickers.
Sexy Challenge Stradale. Lady driven. (With heels)
I had no idea there were all these Stradales around in Singapore. Where are they hiding?
One last bum shot before we took to the roads.
Mid-way pit stop for a photo-op.
Like the Challenge Stradales, i have no idea Singapore has all these 356s.
Sexiest 911 imo. (Unless you count in the uber-rare 964 Speedster)
Closest we have to a Singer.
Another F-car we don’t see very much nowadays, the 550/575 Maranello.
Pure 80s excess.
Look at them strakes.
Another 308. I want one so bad.
Gated shifter. Love it.
Not a bad lineup right?
Soon after, we hit the end of our drive and the final rest stop.
Some last parting shots. Please excuse me for not going crazy snapping away as i usually would. Driving around with the roof down with the tropical sun giving us a nice tan does get rather tiring.
For those interested, here’s a little video of our drive. Till next year! (Hopefully)
