This 987 belongs to a good friend of mine that is from Germany. His name is Lucas and he has an unabashed passion for anything Porsche makes. I first met Lucas at the Audi dealership here in Huntsville. When I first heard him talk I noticed he had a peculiar accent. So I started speaking to him in German – I can speak and understand German very well but I am not fluent. He was very surprised at how well I could speak the language with proper enunciation.
Long after that we followed each other on social media and developed a good friendship when we discovered our passion for German cars. Fast forward to present day, Lucas was very generous enough to allow me to drive his beloved 987. I was in shock when he joyfully told me that I should drive it. I took him up on the offer and took it for a spin. I was completely enamored by it. I had never driven a prestigious vehicle before! The rush of visceral emotion that I was feeling is something that cannot be described. There was no better way to preserve the emotions other than to take photos!
