Air-Cooled, Water-Cooled - What's Your Porsche?

Many of us have at least two Porsches in the garage; an air-cooled Porsche and a water-cooled Porsche.

The Classic Porsche of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s that introduced us to the brand is fun and nostalgic, but it is sometimes hard to beat the modern conveniences offered by a 21st Century Porsche.

When do you use which Porsche?

I’ll be honest, I love my original 1986 Porsche Carrera as it brings up so many emotions every time that I drive it, but sometimes I just want the powerful air conditioning on the hot day, or the warm heated seats on a cold day that my 2009 911 offers. My modern 997 Porsche has become my daily driver Porsche while my Classic Air-Cooled Porsches are my special drivers for those special moments.
