Borrowing A 912 Porsche In France Is Highly Recommended

Vincent Perraud is someone I’ve been personally following on Instagram for ages. We’ve featured his work in our Instagram roundups before, but when he shot me over a dropbox full of stunning images from a recent road trip in a 912, I had to know more.

He rented the car from Roadstr.FR which is apparently a bit like AirBnB for classics. What he loved about the service most is that you are connected to passionate classic owners who are excited to share their ride with you for a short period of time. Vince and his girlfriend took what they called the “little spaceship” on a weekend trip to Bourgogne where they cruised the countryside on crispy winter’s morning.

At any rate the photos turned out just beautiful and I’m excited to share them with you.

Fantastic photos. Pure envy.

A German sportscar and a French girlfriend: the right combination. Do not reverse the equation.

beautiful pictures, a great combination of a car and a place. I know Petrolicious is a car website but would love to hear about the wines of this trip, too.

Seriously, someone will rent me their 912? What an absolute dream come true to rent a 912 to drive around Europe and through the Alps. If I’d done better in 8th grade French I might’ve been able to read the web-site. Damn….

Tried Google translate? ?

Seriously? Someone will let you rent their 912? That would absolutely be my dream come true to rent this car for a vacation through the Alps. Oh man! Wish I remembered more of my 8th grade French class and could translate the roadstr website!

This is quite serious 🙂 The website works the same way as airbnb. Here is the link to the 912: https://www.roadstr.fr/cars/porsche-912-1967-paris
You can use google translation to have the website in english.

Love the shot from behind of the lady, the 912, and the sun streaming through the trees. Beautiful.

Hell Gushue .. borrowing a well sorted 912 much of anywhere [ well maybe not in downtown Manhattan , LA , SF etc ] is highly recommended . Fact is the 912 if my favorite of all the 911 bodied Porsches due to the superior weight distribution and handling . Fact is … my ultimate mid life crisis dream car [ assuming I were to succumb to such a thing ] … would be a resto modded 912 complete with a POLO Porsche flat four in the back . Hmm … just like the one Alois Ruf built for himself… Read more »
