The Porsche 911: If you ask me, it’s the quintessential sports car, and defines a genre. It’s also undeniable in both its form and figure; wholly unique and unmatched by any rival. The 911’s shape is its own and nothing but, and both enthusiasts and laymen alike know it well. Today, we take a quick look at the presence of a firmly-planted example, photographed by the talented Alex Pfeiffer, perched in the hills of Austria.
Rob Dern’s infatuation with Mercedes’s C126 platform began early: through movies and pop culture, the 560 SEC rose quickly to prominence as an end-all in automotive prowess through the ’80s and ’90s. Gangsters and rockstars alike turned to the massive coupe as a catchall for performance and poise, and understandably, Rob’s attention was fixed on the coupe for years and years to come.
When it comes to Stateside car culture, it’s difficult to remember the Audi marque much further back than the 1980s, with the Audi Fox standing as one of only a few prior examples most enthusiasts might be familiar with.

Roman Goldberg considers himself well-versed in classic BMWs, and understandably so. In his garage, you’ll find a stunning example of a Dakar Yellow E36 M3, and an E12 528i. Parked between them? This gorgeous M635CSi, one of just 5,859 BMW Motorsport-developed 6ers built for a worldwide audience. That tidbit, though, was part of a lesson learned by Roman after discovering the car in an online classified ad.
“Pictures don’t do it justice.” It’s a line we’ve all heard before, and these days, it’s to be taken with a grain of salt. When it comes to Mateusz Karwowski, though, it’s something to be heeded, for in 2016, Mateusz dragged this 520i home on a flatbed, in dire need of “TLC.” Truth be told, it appears to have been a nice car: nice enough for the likes of you and I, most likely. A layer of dust sat atop the car, the windshield hardly anything past translucent.
