Porsche has always been my favorite sport car company for as long as I can remember. This small collection of Porsche automobile images mostly highlights the iconic Porsche 911 and most of the photography (but not all) took place at a location 3,000 feet up on Cypress Mountain (in West Vancouver, BC) from mid September to mid October, 2013 as the weather and schedules permitted. I really enjoyed the experience and that great twisty drive up and down the mountain was enjoyed by all of us driving Porsches!
With everyone talking about 2013 being a celebration of 50 Years of the Porsche 911, I wanted to publish a book containing 50 Porsches owned by our local Porsche Club members. Many of the images in this collection can also be found in my book, “PORSCHE CLUB OF AMERICA-CANADA WEST REGION”. The 50 cars in my book are from every one of those 50 years of Porsche 911 production; a truly amazing collection of automobiles owned by a group of very fine people that really like their Porsches.

The Porsche Carrera GT is a mid-engine supercar that was manufactured by Porsche between 2004–2007. Sports Car International named the Carrera GT number one on its list of Top Sports Cars of the 2000s, and number eight on Top Sports Cars of All Time list. The Carrera GT is powered by a 5.7 litre V10 engine producing 605 hp (450 kW). A road test in June 2004 by Car and Driver showed that the car can accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and 0-100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.8 seconds. The Carrera GT came equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.
