Oktoberfest at 311 RS = Lots of beer, hammers and nails, not to mention a few Porsches….
The Uber driver laughed as we arrived at our destination. My excitement had been palpable all through our short journey and I was akin to a child on the way to a toy shop on his birthday. Why did I feel this way?
A few weeks back, I had my first experience in an aircooled Porsche, a Carrera RS no less. Here are my thoughts.
It’s 5 a.m. and I’m rubbing my eyes as the rising sun turns the sky into beautiful shades of blue and gold. I’m standing in a residential community in Dubai, waiting for a car. I haven’t gotten much sleep the previous night, so to say I’m excited is an understatement.
A few minutes later, a white Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS materialises before me, shattering the silence with its aircooled loping idle. The red font on the doors, the ducktail and the foglights all say the same thing; this car is anything but ordinary.
