On the train from Fenchurch Street to Shoeburyness on a chilly but gloriously sunny morning – I was full of anticipation. Not only was I collecting my repaired car but I’d also be able to have a look at ongoing projects at Sportwagen in the far east of Essex.
My 911 saga began with a dream of owning a Porsche 356 but much research and inspection of cars led me to the conclusion that:-
a) buying a decent 356 was beyond my means and
b) using a 356 as a daily driver wasn’t really very practical.
The 356 engined 912 became the next target until the now well established Porsche expert (Andy Prill) pointed out that restoration costs for a 912 are pretty well the same as for a 911 but the resulting value of the car would be very different.
