In today’s PorscheCooled Podcast Michael presents episode 57 of owner stories with Geoff from Sydney, Australia. Growing up in Brisbane Geoff has been surrounded by cars since he was a kid. His father was a car enthusiast – owning Jaguars and even an Aston Martin DB4 when Geoff was in his teens. Not to mention his uncles who also had some special cars including Jaguar E Types and MGB’s. Iconic sports cars that Geoff fondly remembers admiring and riding in as a kid. All great cars but it wasn’t until his dad’s friend turned up one day in a new 3.0 litre 911 Turbo that Geoff knew Porsche was his dream car. Geoff’s early car journey included an MGB when he was 17 as well as the original Mini Cooper S. Porsche ownership was still out of reach. In his early 20’s Geoff almost purchased a 1973 911E, a car he wanted (and could afford) but his father objected to. Fast forward a few years to the ‘90’s and Geoff starts his Porsche ownership journey with a ’82 911SC Targa. Since then, Geoff is now well and truly a ‘Porsche guy’, having owned 19 Porsches to date. His current Porsche garage is very special. He has a 1956, ’57 model year 356A speedster under restoration, a well optioned ’73.5 Australian delivered RHD 911 TE and a ‘67 SWB 912 in RHD. All with a great back story. Geoff loves to search the history of all the Porsches he owns. This includes documenting the heritage of all the cars and tracking down and connecting with previous owners. Geoff really does uncover the hidden history of his cars. Geoff’s passion and knowledge of Porsche is evident and a reason why I love recording the owner stories episodes.
