Neo-Vintage: Ferrari 250 GT Lusso Morning Ritual (Petrolicious)

We love vintage sports cars and one of our favorite marks of yesteryear is Ferrari and the lovely, small-displacement, high-revving, sonorous V-12's that found their way into the engine bays of various hand built coupes and GT's five decades ago. This short film looks at the ownership experience of a very fortunate Ferrari 250 GT Lusso owner; there aren't many of these late 60's beauties out there anymore and he bought at the right time. Absorb the lesson here from James Chen on taking advantage of those future classics out there that are still very affordable. Carpe opportunitas.

For the love of P: Porsche 911 at 50: Seven generations of 911 (Autocar)

Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe gathers one of all seven generations of 911 to see where it started and where it stands right now. I want an air-cooled 911 in my garage more than ever these days. I wouldn't be mad if it had carbs either.
