Porsche patina: Rejuvenating a 928
By Pablo Deferrari
I think it happened somewhere around 1983. I was bitten hard when a 911 Turbo whooshed by me, and from that moment I became an air-cooled 911 junkie. But something else infatuated me that, to this day, I can't quite figure out how it came to be — I secretly lusted after her younger, more Rubenesque sister. You see, there was something about her lines, her eyes and especially her rump that was very different from the 911, but yet inexplicably similar. It took all of 30 years for this attraction to be re-ignited because she had aged so gracefully and looked better than ever. I had to have her.
