There’s an adage that says “to love what you do means you’ll never work a day in your life.” On the other hand, they tell us that when a hobby becomes a career, fun becomes work. There’s a fine line to straddle, and few are able to turn “play” into “work” without a loss of passion.
Over the past year or two, the fervor surrounding the Porsche marque has reached an all time high. Prices have been soaring as even some of the once-undesirable models are now re-entering the spotlight as sought after commodities in the classifieds.
This year, I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside the team at Formula Drift to create a collection of limited edition art prints. To round out the year and celebrate the final fight for the championship, I have created 250 prints, each hand signed and numbered to commemorate the championship battle between Fredric Aasbo and Ken Gushi. With two Scions in contention on the challenging Irwindale Speedway, it’s sure to be an exciting event.
While it’s not a brand that dominated the racing world, Coca-Cola is arguably one of the most world renowned brands in our history. It seems fitting that such a brand would grace the body panels of one of the last Porsche 935s built for competition. Fabcar, in Tucker, Georgia, assembled the car from the most successful parts in its predecessors.
The Porsche 911 is, in many ways, the quintessential sports car. Upon its introduction, the world of motoring was changed forever. Still, the 911 continues to help the world of motoring evolve, more than 50 years on. At its core, the 911 remains little-changed from its original incarnation, despite technology’s advancement.
