Hi

Since I collect b&o stuff , I met many b&o fans and I was surprised to see that they often drive a Porsche or have driven a Porsche in the past.

I wonder how many beoworlders are in the same situation.

 

 

4 beolab 5,  beolab 9, beolab 10, beolab 5000, beolab 8000 mk2, beolab 6002, beolab 3500, beovision 7 55 mk2,  beovision 11 46 mk4, beotime, beosound ouverture, beosound essence, beomaster 900 RG de luxe and the collection continues...

pointless cars imo , if you're going to take impracticality to that level why not go all the way and buy a superbike ?

 

 

I wouldn't say a 911 is impractical. Far from it in fact.

I drive an Audi. Porsche have Bose Sound System. B&O is available only with Audi, Aston Martin, BMW and Mercedes.

No need for a radio in a 911. Just listen to that flat six.

As a fan of quality old Mercs are still top of the line from my point of view but Porsches are also pretty well-built cars. Still way too much money for a car. There's nothing that burns money like cars do - especially a) expensive premium cars and b) cars that are either manufactured in England or Italy Stick out tongue or c) even worse: both like Lambo or Jaguar for example. If you can afford driving those you better be rich so that you can afford the maintenance without having to make too much compromises at the expense of the more important things in life. Still cool cars though. Would have always wished to own a Countach one day but that's pretty far away, considering that you better take it to a mechanic every time before and after a ride and not to mention the regular super expensive maintenance that has to be done. Porsche probably is a very good compromise between quality, affordability, fun, value and style.

Yes. Since 1965.

Bang & Olufsen, Porsche, and Rimowa.

All good investments, although some models are certainly better than others.

for Germans who are so renowned for their brilliant efficiency the 911 has always seemed a conundrum to me

the engine's in the back where the luggage belongs , so at the front ? the spare tyre !!!??

Oh man, that Austrian accent is just absolutely beautiful! Love it!

To add to the conversation, I was really pondering getting a 944 (the only one I could really afford or motivate bar the ugly 924) although the dream car would be a Carrera 4S but time went by and now I have a one year old son and a 15 year old Volvo... I guess that's life. Perhaps in twenty years I'll get back to the Porsche idea. The Volvo is excellent btw, swallows any amount of stuff and runs like new, wouldn't trade it for a 2(ish)-seater at this stage.

Nope. Volvo XC70 for me. Need the space for work and play, and love the Scandinavian interior. Not going for flash cars for a while. B&O, and designer furniture all comes first, along with travel. Love fast cars though!
