Happiness Is A Porsche 911 3.6 Turbo And Nothing Else In Sight

What’s your definition of badass car? For every cool American muscle car or Italian exotic you’ve seen, there’s a Teutonic equivalent, but few are as quietly sinister as the rare Porsche 911 3.6 Turbo. The 964.
Focus intensely on its Speedline wheels, deep black finish, large flexing fenders, and its iconic flat spoiler. When you look at it, there’s nothing else that could look faster and meaner…and still look kind of sedate. To go further into exploring turbocharged Porsches, here’s one the most awesome evolutions of the great 930: the 964 3.6. With fewer than 1,500 built and produced only between 1993 and 1994, this masterpiece is a rare , Bad Boys-worthy blackbird.
Even if this particular 911 didn’t have Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as an option, it was for bad boys only (and not bad drivers, either). As you can expect, you may look cool while driving it, but let’s hope no one sees your face when the turbo kicks in at 3,200 rpm, because you’re guaranteed to lose your dignity. You’ll either be scared to death or giggle like a clown.
If you grew up in the ’90s, the chase scene from the film Bad Boys between the black 3.6 Turbo and the Shelby Cobra was burned into your memory.
Nothing was cooler than seeing two of the meanest and rarest cars chasing each other through the streets of Miami. Except, maybe, how cool it was to rocket through Italy’s countryside in my very own Bad Boys Porsche.
