The 911 is one of the most iconic cars going around and on this cold day in Melbourne, about 25 nicely preserved 911’s turned up for a display that was 3 years in the making, because when you book a spot at Federation Square, be prepared to wait up to 3 years for it!
There was a wide assortment of cars on display on the day but this was the only Carrera RS, the subtle differences made this car completely stand out amongst the crowd.
Keeping cars like this in immaculate condition is no easy feat and when you consider that these cars are 40+ years old, it makes you really appreciate them even more.
it was good to see that many of these cars were road registered and are not just hidden in garages and only driven on the occasional weekend.
Only a nice set of Simmons wheels can make a porsche look even better!
The shape that started it all! Its no wonder the 911 Porsche is so popular to this day.
I don’t know what it is about these old school stickers but I think they add a lot of character.
The amount of people I saw taking photos in front of the Porsche’s was staggering, It is almost like these cars are the thing of boyhood dreams and that the only way people can live out those dreams is through displays like this.
The rare badges and fine details are something you don’t see on the cars of today.
i love the brass springs and bolts on the throttle bodies, they show the type of quality and prestige this legendary car is known for.
Even the club stickers are classic and well designed.
This looks to have seen some track action in its day.
Nothing says race like a fuel filler right in the center of the bonnet.
Although this my look like a toy cars interior it is not! Just the bare basics is all that was needed back in the early 1970s.
This isnt the place you would expect to find good fitment and stance-like ride height but this Carrera RS was doing it very nicely.
A rainbow of Porsche’s!
Targa top! Looking at this makes me think of the Audi A1 silver highlights and whether this was the inspiration for it.
This colour probably started the frog label for Porsche, but damn it looks good.
With these wheels the car almost looks like the 356 Porsche!
just another cool badge!
This is one of two cars sporting funky little fog lights.
Even children where getting a kick out of seeing these cars.
Engine stickers! These should be remade for all types of cars! They are great and make it much easier to identify the engines in these Porsche’s.
The TYP901 club put on a great display and really showed the public how beautiful these classic cars really are.
