This forum has been sleepy these days, so it's nice to see you still keeping up the Hide-Out, Duell!

When do we think the air-cooled bubble will burst?

I've been thinking that it must be happening soon for a few years now, clearly underestimating the monomania and deep wallets of the contemporary Porch collector. It's not that I don't think Porsches are unworthy cars; they're certainly a staple of the sportscar landscape. I just don't really understand why they've been elevated to such a high status. Having known owners of formerly-attainable and slightly-rattly '80s 911s (both of whom, to their chagrin, unloaded their cars before the current hyperbole) and ridden in their cars, I enjoyed the rides in their cars with all the unique noise, smell, and vibration that that entails. I guess, because I fail to understand them, I cannot accurately predict how they will fare in the future.

I had initially thought that things were cooling off and that everyone who wanted one had one, but then I went home (to California) and found that the "Safari" trend of taking 911s from the iffier years and lifting them has fanned the embers a bit and begun lifting even the formerly-undesirable models out of many people's reach.

I know we've got some old-school aircooled folks around here. I'd be interested to hear their takes.

A good person to ask would be csl177, I think he races old 914s. When you step away from the forums, you start to forget things about members.

I think Magnus Walker and the Singer Porsches are really pretty and show high quality workmanship, but the prices he commands are ridiculous.

I think it's partly why Porsche offers the 911 R and the GT3 with a manual.


The safari trend is also stupid, just as stupid as the crazy camber/hellaflush crowd because they chop up good cars and roll fenders with no regard for car safety and suspension geometry.
