On Valentines Day, it is appropriate to think of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s famous sonnet when thinking of your Porsche: “How do I love thee Porsche? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the shape, speed and handling that my Porsche can achieve…”
I am not a poet so instead I turned to Air Brigade Anonymous to borrow the famous prose of Ms Browning’s to create a version to describe the love of a Porsche.
How do I love thee, Porsche?
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the speed and handling and might
My soul can reach, when feeling all your flight
For the ends of being and the ideal race.
I love thee to drive each and every day
Cruising quietly, by sun and dusk just right.
I love thee freely, as men take plight.
I love thee purely, as we turn the wheels up raised.
I love thee with a passion put to good use.
Soothing old grief’s’ and fulfilling childhood’s blaze.
I love thee with a love that I did choose,
A love I could not loose.
I love thee with the breath, smiles and tears, of my life;
and, if God should choose,
I shall but love thee better even after death.

Happy Valentines Day air-cooled Porsche owners, drivers and admirers.
Go to the garage today and give your Porsche a little love; perhaps a rub down, a drive or just a sit in the driver’s seat. Rekindle that love for Porsche that created the desire for you to buy it.
Enjoy it, drive it, love it.
My personal Valentines Day gift is a new battery for my ’86 Carrera, a polish for the 914 in preparation for its showing at the Amelia Werks Reunion and stretching the legs of my 997 TT with a mountain run.
How do I love thee Porsche? Let me count the ways on this special day of love.
