A bit of 80's Porsche from Motorclassica 2014..

A couple interesting cars from the Porsche club display outside Motorclassica 2014. 
These were amongst a ton of great cars in that club's display.. but these's two you just dont see often (and being products of the 80's makes them obviously relevant to this blog..).
Same Marque, opposite ends of the decade, and really not a whole lot in common..

First up - a 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster. The low-screen version of the 911 Cabriolet.. and a throwback to the 356 Speedtser from decades before.

Available in both standard/narrow and widebody/'turbo' look. This car is clearly the latter.. and is by far more common.. for obvious reasons! 

The low screen looks awesome with its heavily radiused edges..

The large rear cover is also very neat compared to the standard car's cabriolet top..

Red over tan, with colour-coded interior details. Its definitely loud.. and I love it so much for just that. 

First time I've ever seen tan gauge faces too?

Next up, A 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GT.

..introduced the year before; as the flared, intercooled, racing homologation version of 1978's 924 Turbo..

Love the 'Carrera' down the front driverside fender/quarter panel.
The offset NACA duct and nosecone vents were standard 924 Turbo fare..

The subtle PORSCHE in the rear spoiler is a great detail; but that rear quarter view really belongs to those wheel-arch flares..

..as damn do they look cool.



As I said; totally different types of 80's Porsche. One I'd love to cruise in, and one I want to drive hard - as very likely they were both originally intended!
