Porsche Zen: Find your inner peace behind the wheel
By Noelle Talmon
People decompress in many different ways — playing 18 holes of golf, sailing or going for a run. For me, Porsche is my Zen. When I get into the driver's seat of my 1976 911S, my mood automatically changes. I clear my mind and revel in the ride. I focus on the road, and the rhythm of the wheels on the pavement becomes my meditation. The sound of the engine, the air in my hair and the salty smell of the Connecticut shore take me to a metaphysical place unreachable in any other way. How can you find Porsche Zen?

Why air-cooled 911s continue to skyrocket, and the best Porsches to snatch while they're still cheap
Yahoo Autos
Porsche's now-iconic 911 will be one of the star models at a variety of auctions unfolding during Pebble Beach’s annual Concours d’Elegance week, Aug. 13-17. A glance at Mecum's catalog alone reveals glossy photos of candy-colored gems from the early '70s, including two Carrera RS Tourings and a few late '70s 935 IMSA standouts. Expect the bidding to be fierce and healthy six-figures high, reflecting this air-cooled car's growing status as a must-have collectible.
