A few weeks ago, I decided to visit the regular Porsche Club Coffee and Cars in Dural, New South Wales. The run down the M1 motorway at 7 am was extremely quiet, although I did spy a Tesla Model S with the registration plate YOU8ME. Now what sort of nasty moron has this as the plate on a premium car? It’s upsetting to think that people like that are roaming free.
There was a big turnout of Porsches at the cafe but, disappointingly, merely a handful of early model cars. A very high proportion were the latest cars. I knew only about six people. I have been a Porsche Club member for 20 years but I felt very much out of place. The world has moved on. The new members with their immaculate, complex and very expensive new model Porsches are on another planet to me.
