    Hmmm. . could be. definitely a cool car.

    Actually surprised that we all like the 355. that was a random consensus. Peak Ferrari?

    @Dino944 's car is dope. and a really interesting look into the mind of the Car guys a decade before us. I guess the 80's was the poster car generation, and we were the Game car Generation. . . :eh:

    Yes.

    You’d probably get dissenting votes favoring the RS, but that would be it, I’d think. Unless Singer is considered a 911.

    My fave, but prolly not. You’ve got the GTO, F40, GT California...

    IMHO, yes. The highest performance, final version of a US spec air cooled 911 Turbo. Also the last 911 before Porsche went to the Boxster parts bin. In its day, not much could touch it short of an F40, 959, or an F50, and those were all substantially more expensive.

    If you are speaking of the 993 RS...I don't believe any of them were US spect cars...might be a great car, but its definitely not a car I new much about until years after it was out of production.

    Perhaps...the F355 is the peak of V8 Ferrari production (without getting into million dollar cars)...as it traces its roots to the 308. With the 360, 430, and 458 etc...much like with later 911s we saw much larger, heavier, more complicated cars.

    Very nice Euro spec 930 Turbo...although not my favorite color. Still, I could live with it ;)

    Thanks Thrift :)

    I would agree completely. :fistbump: My generation was largely a paper goods generation. We had exotic car posters on the walls (the parents were understanding and let me put up the really trashy ones from Spencer's Gifts with girls barely wearing anything, and with silly sayings). In addition, as a teen I had subscriptions to Road & Track, Car and Driver, and Automobile (never really a Motor Trend fan). I would also grab catalogs from any dealer I went to with my parents. I had a huge appetite for car info, and without the internet and dedicated car forums...those were the only ways to get my car fix while growing up. Video game systems were in their infancy when I was a teen (Atari, Intelevision, and Colecovision). The first really great video game systems weren't until I was in grad school, Sony Play Station and then Xbox.

    Today, we have great car forums, car magazines have websites, and with things like XBox One X and Forza 7...its so much easier to get your car info fix. Even the Porsche dealer I visited with friends who were buying a Macan Turbo had XBox and Forza 7 with set up for people in the waiting area. Cheers!
