I remember it vividly. I saw Jack Olsen’s 1972 Porsche 911 in a magazine at my father’s house during the holidays. I saw the same car again in a forum a few months later. The “Black Beauty” had the stance of a linebacker, ready for whatever came toward it. It was simply the closest thing to a perfect, vintage Porsche 911 that I had seen.
Ferrari has built some of Italy’s most impressive machines. But a prancing horse badge isn’t required for an Italian car to be simply incredible. Most of the cars that follow aren’t inexpensive, but compared to Ferraris they are absolute steals.
