Great down to earth couple. I met them a few years ago during the Celebration Exotic Car Festival, FL, and they were a pleasure to meet. They had great things to say about the Delorean owners there. Being a Delorean owner myself, its great to see such ambassadors for a the cause and see them again on another adventure I see.

I own a naturally aspirated 991 2012. Love the feel and control on the engine. Previously to that had my first 911 as a 996, and what a roar that was too! I think he is correct, the generation will look back and miss the combustible 911. Values and appreciation may take off after full electrification starts. I understand electrification is inevitable across the industry; it's just more efficient and better technology. BUT it simplifies the automobile so much that it truly takes the "mechanical " feel of it completely. You're no longer riding on a complex piece of machinery with thousands of parts synchronized to give you the desired output, but rather you're now getting a "golf cart" plug and play automobile. In the future the appreciation of fast acceleration will no longer be a standard to measure anymore because electric motors will make it much easier to do that. You'll just enjoy a nice "hum" and take more appreciation for precise handling and feel instead. Just my opinion but I think the 911 will always retain its prestige as the world's best and most practical sports car.
