In connection with our membership in and advertising relationship with Porsche Club of America Upper Canada Region (PCA-UCR), we were treated to a social event put on by the club and held at a Porsche dealership. For a small admission fee, we were also treated to a light but scrumptious dinner – compliments of a highly recommended caterer, check its branded truck below. We were promised attendance by a couple of VIPs, which turned out to be a gag as the VIPs were very impressive Porsches. No joke there – conspicuously displayed in the showroom were a Porsche 959 and a Porsche 918 Spyder. We will not try to describe these two cars here – there are not enough superlatives and your web searches will do the two more justice. We will say that we love both and they have been impeccably kept – the 959 being approximately 35 years old.

The food truck of the splendid caterer. Don’t be fooled by the “COFFEE” branding because dog-gone it, they make a fine meal for brown-baggin’ it. Thanks, Fleets!
Let Us Know What You Think… post a comment! Can anyone pick out a model year or other detail we don’t have? What do you remember about the release of the 959? And the 918? What other car(s) would you put in their class?
Spectacular group of cars and a spectacular venue.
When the 959 was released, I seem to recall it was mentioned that there was going to be one at a Porsche dealership downtown in the showroom. Fairly late on a Saturday night as I was driving home with my wife and 8 year old son I realized we were passing that dealership. I pulled in and we peered through the window at a silver 959.
