356 C [1964 à 1965]

’64 Porsche 356 Outlaw… Celle là, elle envoie du lourd !

Certains ont du mal à comprendre comment la Porsche 356 peut être considérée comme sportive. A une époque où des breaks filent à plus de 300 à l’heure, on s’dit que 40 ch et 140 km/h, même avec 500 kg sur la balance, y’avait pas de quoi se palucher… Les pauvres, ils n’ont rien compris […]

A 1964 Porsche 356C is a Ticket To Adventure

According to 356C owner Catherine Sutton, « the whole point of owning in old car is that it’s a choice rather than a chore. » Despite the work that comes with owning something antiquated, that is a truth that rings through for all old cars. What does not ring true for all is the feeling of harmony Catherine gets from her 356C. In a classic Porsche everything works together in a logical way. The floor hinged pedals are connected to a world of feedback. At every stage the Porsche is honest about what it is and what it can do. Excess girth isn’t concealed by electronic aids and a preponderance of power. With simplicity comes a purity of purpose and a sense of adventure many modern cars lack.

For those of us who regularly drive very old cars, there is something that makes every trip special. I daily drove a pair of Studebaker pickups for a while when I was in my late teens and going into college. The newer of the two, a ’56 Studebaker Transtar 1/2 ton, made Catherine’s 356 look positively modern. It also lacked the carefully engineered inputs and high minded nature of the little sports car. Its original intent was far more down and dirty. In the canyons of Southern California it would have felt about as in its element as a moose.

But like Catherine’s 356, it was never a means to an end. The journey wasn’t wasted time bookended by home and a goal, it was part of the adventure in itself. The world out the windshield was a panoramic vista vignetted by the hazy corners of the curved windscreen, and centered by the long, curving hood.

Like Caroline, the truck was never perfect. It was laced with the patina of age, and as she said it added to the story. It contributed to your own understanding of your role in this vehicle’s history, whether that history came from honest labor or from the joy of driving a Porsche.

Gorgeous Green Porsche 356C Stars In The New Season Of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee

Jerry Seinfeld’s show « Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee » combines two of my most closely held loves in the world; cars and comedy. Coffee is another thing I appreciate, but really only as a vessel for milk and sugar. In any case, this show has been around for a few years, and was recently drafted to a new season on Netflix. While Jerry is an avowed Porsche nut, he has a distinct appreciation for all models of cars, and this season showcases a bunch of cool non-Porsche automobiles. Everything from a classic Fiat Multipla to a Citroen SM takes center stage, but in Episode 8 the Porsche sheetmetal really gets to shine!

Episode 8 is an amazing 15 minutes from top to bottom, because not only is the car amazing, but the « real » subject of the show, incredibly funny comic Neal Brennan, is the perfect guest for Jerry to interview. Both worked on stand out comedic shows in their era, with Seinfeld’s titular sitcom breaking barriers for television, and Neal’s work on Chappelle’s Show as head writer is regarded as one of the funniest things of the 2000s. Neither of the two have spent any time watching the other’s work, but they both acknowledge and understand why that has to be true, and they both understand and revere each other for their accomplishments.

This gorgeous Irish Green 356 doesn’t spend much time on screen, but what time it does provides for captivating views. After picking up Neal from his home, Jerry and Neal take the dog for a walk before Neal describes the 356 as « being in a nice watch ». It’s initially taken as a complement, but later in the episode he reveals that he doesn’t understand the appeal of nice watches or nice cars. Jerry, in typical Jerry fashion, geeks out over a nice VW Beetle, and says he likes cars because they can take you places. It’s a simple philosophical turn of phrase, but he’s not wrong.

If you like cars, if you like comedy, check out the new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee streaming on Netflix now. If you watch the episode and like Neal Brennan, check out his stand up special ‘3 Mics’, because it’s an innovative new way to look at comedy, and I loved it to death.
