      In honor of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche and creator of the original Porsche 911, this past Saturday at C&C we had Porsche day.

      Throngs of fans and cars showed up in order to honor the man. The area in the parking lot known as "The Corral" was packed full of all kinds of variations of Porsche's. Amongst those present there was an ultra rare 1961 Porsche Carrera Abarth GTL, and two Porsche Carrera GTS's.

      At the back row of the Cars & Coffee lot, which was full extra early on this day, you could find a row of Ferrari's. Then there was the pretty cool looking C63 AMG Blackseries parked next to a CLK Blackseries. Heck, there was even a Ferrari Dino mini-meet on this day. The quality of cars was certainly out there and MOSTLY everyone behaved.

      I hope you guys enjoy this weeks pics:

      Wow, can't believe I missed this. Was it for real Leo? Picking up a body kit and slapping it onto a 190e 2.3 isn't easy to do with that car.

      I don't know what the rarest car that's ever shown up would be, but I'm sure that Porsche Abarth would be top 5.

      Comparable to the e30 M3 if he did a proper replica (doubt its a real one, just a very well done up replica [aka my dream car from the late 80s/early 90s])

      Does anyone know if that 190e Cosworth Evolution II is real? I could have sworn the wheels on the real-deal didn't have a machined finish like the one at C&C. All the pictures I have ever seen have been of cars with silver-painted wheels:

      If this is real..it would be the rarest. 1 of 15 Porsche 937 (924 Carrera GTS Club Sport). 270HP, 2332LBS.



      If it is a standard Carrera GTS, it is a 1 of 44 car with 245HP/2466lbs

      Although it could be a Carrera GT modified to look like a GTS Clubsport. Still a 1 of 331 car.

      Well, there were no NSX's in the OP....let alone a 1 of 5 NSX-R GT.

      Going through the pics in the link...i did stumble upon what looked like an NSX-R Clone...unless it was the real thing..

      Yeah - the State of CA recognizes it as a 1986 190E 2.3-16 with smog check records dating back to 2009.

      TCL has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things automotive. Someone on here can shed light on just about any automotive question.

      I'm a Porsche enthusiast who is partial to 70's, 80's, & 90's Porsches....especially the front engine variety....

      Oh, you were talking about the rarest car ATTENDING. I was talking in the world

      That NSX was an R clone:

      1) No RHD (NSX-R's were JDM only.)
      2) No red Recaros

      Still sexiness though.
