Pic Of The Week


Friday 30th November 2012


Less a tell me I'm wrong, more a prove I'm right with this week's desktop delight

A lot of talk about Porsches lately on PH. Well, even more than usual. We've had Dan asking to be proved wrong about his anti-Turbo bias (more than a few were happy to help...), discussion of Porsche styling from both 911 designer Matthias Kulla and Porsche's overall head of design Michael Mauer off the back of the unveiling of the new Cayman over in LA.

Now, we could have chosen one of those pics for your desktop delight this week. Given that PH was there during the photoshoot it would have been appropriate. But in research for the Tell Me I'm Wrong we came across a more classic slice of Porsche design from an iconic period in 911 development. And demonstration, perhaps, of why Porsche design sticks to the 'ain't broke, don't fix it' school of conservatism.

Here, in all its whaletailed glory then, is your Pic Of The Week. Enjoy!
