The latest installment in Porsche’s official Top 5 video series features Wolfgang Porsche’s favorite cars from his personal collection.
Wolfgang, son of Ferry Porsche and brother of the original 911’s designer, is the Chairman of the company’s Supervisory Board and as expected, knows his Porsches really well.
His personal collection is home to a few rare classics, including an Irish Green 1962 356 Carrera 2000 and a 1952 356 America Roadster. More modern machinery is also present, including a 1993 911 Turbo S.
However Dr. Porsche’s collection isn’t dedicated to air-cooled classic models only, as he believes that the latest cars are also the better ones, as he proudly displays his Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
“My father would surely have wanted [the Panamera] because he said: ‘The newest car is always the best.’ That was the theme for me,” said Dr. Porsche. “Whenever I added an old car to my collection, [my father] would have said: ‘Why are you driving an old car? The newer one is always the better one.'”
Of course no Porsche collection is complete without having perhaps the greatest analogue Porsche of all time, the mid-engined Carrera GT. It basically ticks every box: naturally aspirated V10 race-derived engine? Check. Manual gearbox? Check. A chassis tuned by the gods of Stuttgart? Of course check.
