Check out the Porsche Video thread, I think there's enough videos to keep you entertained for a few days, if you watch every single video

Very well done. Derek Bell spoke at a PCA event I attended. He's a very entertaining speaker.

But this video in particular made it difficult to concentrate entirely on the cars.

That grin of his at the very end was awesome......

I met him once at Daytona. Super friendly. I was a little star struck!

Where is the 911? I went though pretty fast, maybe I missed it. Most of these cars 99% of the world don't even know exist. I do agree with the 550 at the end though.

I'm really surprised the 986 wasn't mentioned. Travesty.

Those are some nice cars, it would be amazing just to be in the same room with them.

the rain man

got a pic of his wreck back at Daytona in the 80's. I was told it was the first time he ever wrecked out of a race.
also got a pic of him in the pits after with a towel over his head.

one of my all time favorites, along with brian redman.
loved it when the Lowenbrau car was running - al holbert

First video list from porsche that is decent.
They made several lime this before that made no sense and focused to much on modern models

Somewhat agree. Though these were iconic motorsport models, not iconic street cars. Nevertheless, I can see the 550, 917, and 956/962. But that GT1 is a car known only to Porsche/car geeks. Maybe the 904, but even that's stretching Porsche history knowledge. But no 917-10/917-30? No 934/935?
