41 Comments on "1969 Porsche 911 T: Maximum Pleasure, Minimalist Package"
I’ve watched this 10 times now since it aired, can’t get enough. The stance on the car is killer. It sounds spectacular. Wish my 69 ‘merican muscle looked and sounded half as good. Gives me something to strive for. Thanks for sharing your story.
Pretty damn cool, Mr. Gerhardt. I am 80% done on a 4-year bare-metal full restoration of a ’69T, also tangerine. Mine required an engine rebuild, so we’re building to S-spec, which should jazz up the bottom and midrange quite a bit. Mine will be too pristine to take on the Beijing-Paris run, but you got me thinking about maybe refitting my ’67 911S racecar as a rally-car…
I was watching this week’s installment of “KEEP DREAMING” when it was done last weeks video was next up so I gave it another watch. This is by far in the top 5 videos I have had the pleasure to watch. The car and the man were perfectly paired in this relationship. I can’t even see that guy behind the wheel of any other. I believe the way he drives the damn thing has everything to do with the envy this is receiving. Keep on Keeping On Mr. Gerhardt
I was half expecting him to pass Magnus Walker headed back from the coffee shop as this was filmed in his hood. The values on these early 911’s seems to have peaked, but they are still way beyond what I can afford, one day maybe!
Great video, beautiful car, wonderful color. The paint is mentioned, but I couldn’t find the name either in the video or with the photo essay. Is it tangerine? It looks a bit different from the other tangerine Porsches I’ve seen, but time of day and other lighting conditions, camera equipment, and image processing methods can all affect how a color looks.
I would LOVE to know where they filmed that sequence in and around those industrial buildings in East L.A. Looks like a private racetrack on a Sunday morning. It feels impossible to find a place like that in L.A. I need to go do some searching for these sites, which are pretty close to where I live.
A true car guy. Great clip. I’m digging the period music in your clips lately.
You guys nailed it with this one and Kurt is a hell of a no B.S. car guy. His car is a reflection of his matter-of-fact personality. Once again the steel wheels are the icing on the cake. None o’ those fancy-ass mags for this car, no sir!
Great, keep up the passion !
Back to great Petrolicious films!
This is living the dream and hauling…Perfect. What an adventure!
This guy gets it! Period! Good luck with the Paris-Beijing rally!
What? No criticisms from the peanut gallery of the very obvious product placement of the U S Bank building in all of the LA cityscape shots?
Definitely one of the very best!
Great street-driving shots in LA! But, a sad reminder that you have to get far away from downtown to find pavement that doesn’t beat up your car. I’d nominate this video as one of your top-5 of all time – great shooting, editing (great sound mix) and a story well-told.
Love your Porsche and love your enthusiasm. Hope one day I come across that Porsche with my name on it.. Keep us updated with your venture in 2019. So enjoyed your commentary and video
Awesome! So well produced. Love it!
We need a similar E39 video!
Wow, the fast and tight cornering plus front tire in the air are expertly captured on film are terrific. Please bring that to future films. Awesome!
Driving shots are outstanding. Your vehicle mounted shots have stepped up.
No need to turn on the radio on a 911, specially if it’s got headers. Great film as always.
no radio, just the purrr of that engine
Great film. If the owner is monitoring comments, what size are the wheels and tires? I love the way the car works on them.
The wheels are custom-offset 7×15 steelies with 205/55/15.
I’ll join the chorus that I really like the effort put into the cinematography on this one, some really lovely and dynamic shots.
Great film! My brother had a black ’68 911 T with a targa top. I still remember my first ride in it. I was probably 13 or 14 years-old at the time. Totally spoiled me for any other sports car brand. The feel of the wind overhead, and the wail of the flat six out back…heaven! Thanks for the memory!
Well lensed and edited … convincing in motion dynamics. Story grabs as told by likable main character – Kurt and his 911T.
True: LA Sunday sunrise, jour fix road time.
Made to Drive is by far my favorite series. Lovely Porsches that I am glad are being used to their full potential.
Amazing video. I love the way Petrolicious brings out the owners passion in these videos. Never pretentious, always real down to earth with amazing goals!
Well done. I would say the best driving scenes outside of a Hollywood movie; better actually, because its real.
You guys are constantly pushing the limits of your craft, there’s only one thing missing to go to the next level and I’m sure, as innovative as you are, you’re already working on it.
What a great video! I enjoyed seeing how the car behaves in average, around-town driving, with all its dust and uneven pavement. The sudden right-hand turn away from the chase car was a fun surprise as well. Keep up the good work!
That was cool. I really appreciate that he treats it like a car, especially considering the stupid money that those things are fetching right now.
That was quite fun seeing a car thrown around like that.
And the sound!
And the tracking shots at speed.
Loved this one.
Nice car and film, love the 911T, great stance and wheels, looks properly sorted. Good luck in the Peking to Paris Rally, sounds fun. Btw, and I may be out of line, but not too cool blasting through downtown homeless areas at speed, save it for the canyons ^*
.. well I don’t concur,for most of my kid-time at home,&thru my marriage it was typical of me to lift out of bed and strain my ear to catch the rev of an approaching neighbors Ducatti,Ferrari,Chevy Bel Air,Saab V-4,912-Abarth… if it was me curled up in my Sears bag under one of those bridges.. I’d be doing the same. Plus us peddle-biker’s prefer the canyons to our own huff’n and puff’n
The cinematography on this one was exceptional. I wouldn’t mind seeing a behind the scene article around how you rigged cameras for this shoot. The opening Pretty Things track was icing on the cake!
Finally is Tuesday!!!! your films are amazing!!!
First of all- its good to see that Glen Frey is still alive..
– Love how you know to drive that car, and throw it around the corners.. you should put a roll-cage in it, fuel cells, and go vintage racing.
– Never turn on the radio .!. just listen to that flat 6
– Love that you’re doing PtP rally.. good luck
– May I ask what vintage car you parted with to get the 2 P cars ?
all the best- Kurt
Great pics, great sound, great car, well done. Thx.
Loved the (flat-six) soundtrack in this film!
