Sleepless in Switzerland.
Going to bed at 2am, and getting up at 5.30am. Why? Car-related shenanigans... The last time I felt this tired was on the Touring Trip, only difference being (really small detail), after driving Eva at 6am I didn’t have to go back to my desk...😭 @killsbugsfast#flatsixmemories#porschemoment
A long and memorable journey to get to ownership for good friend @uni.kaat but Wow Wow.
So glad to finally get to see his simply stunning Porsche.
He gave me the keys 🔑 too @oakgruenmetallic xx
When Lila met Eva...
Soon I’ll be able to share some spectacular shots from an impromptu photo shoot with a fellow Porker, whom I met through a mutual friend (@killsbugsfast ) Luckily, two of us didn’t mind disrupting our beauty sleep schedule (looking at you @killsbugsfast ) 😂. The result will be worth the three hours I slept before #fos2018 💚💜
A weekend I won’t forget, not in a hurry, not ever. Endless moments to recount, a great many laughs and too much excitement. What summed it up like little else could: a GT department legend, who I’m proud to call a friend, clarified that Eva is from one place, and one place only: Flacht.
For the 2.7RS, Porsche had two versions: the Lightweight (M471), which was a stripped out homologation special, and the Touring (M472). Some 2.7RS even had the rare factory ducktail delete (including one development prototype and one family car), so I guess you could say, Eva has some pretty big shoes to fill. #flatsixmemories#porschemoment#fos2018
Probably the question I’ve been asked most about Eva. The genuine answer: help, luck and dogged determination (verging on a diagnosable condition) at every stage. Within the large listed company that is Porsche AG, I have come across some of the most passionate petrolheads anywhere! From my dealer who took a chance to the passion of some bearded dude (🤔), everyone did what they could to see Eva through (and to stop me bugging them). To me it was always about more than a car, and for a small part of this journey, each person made that possible. Eva has already introduced me to new friends, made old ones smile, reminded me of those who should be riding shotgun, and prompted me to focus on my passions. Goodwood, here we come...👍 #flatsixmemories#porschemoment
If you know your Porkers, you know. If you don’t, please don’t be the guy that asked me “couldn’t get 911 or 991...?” As a young kid I inherited a pre-owned box of toy cars, the crown jewels were some battered Siku models - including a Polizei 993 👮♂️ - another had the following model designation on the underside “Porsche 901”. I guess I just play on a bigger carpet now...#flatsixmemories#porschemoment
Beyond excited for this weekend - meeting old and new petrolfriends from all over the globe - reception for Eva has been somewhat overwhelming (including senior figure at PAG saying “are you the owner of Eva?” 😱😂). Will be parked in Supercar Parking - maybe not alone 😉! Otherwise message, DM or send smoke signals...! #flatsixmemories#porschemoment#fos2018
As a child (who am I kidding...😅) I played a game called “if you could only have one car...” Sure, there are rarer, faster and more expensive cars, but as one of my friends observed during our Touring trip “that car is him, it’s Tino”. So I guess, I’m no longer allowed to play. Lucky bugger...#flatsixmemories#porschemoment
