Driving a vintage 911 is a real conversation starter
By Noelle Talmon
While cruising down the highway on the Connecticut shoreline this summer, a teenage boy in a souped-up Honda drove up next to me in my 1976 911S and blew me a kiss. I smiled, knowing it was the car, not me, who was the object of his desire. Quirky things like that happen often when I get behind the wheel of my nearly 40-year-old Porsche, whom I affectionately call "Smokey." People are fascinated with classic cars, and there's something about a vintage 911 that makes them do a double take.

CarBuzz
Porsche Cars Australia has presented the police force in New South Wales, Australia, with a Porsche 911 Carrera cop car. Replacing the Panamera it donated a couple of years ago, the 911 will not be used to hunt down the bad guys.
