Nostalgia to Lebanon glory days with the Classic Porsches trip

ADVERTISEMENT

On the 8th of April 2018, a group of Porsche Classic Car Owners wanted to take their classic cars back to the glory days where these cars roamed the streets.

The day started at early morning with more than 7 classic Porsches from all ages got together for a trip down the memory lane. After the first sip of coffee at “Paul” coffee shop, the owners were ready to roll and headed straight to the old Train Station of Tripoli visiting this classic landmark that marked the era of prosperity in the Lebanese North Capital.

An array of colours and history was being created on that day with the 964 Cabrio and 993 Cabrio owned by Assaad Raphael, 911 Targa owned by Fouad Matta, 944 S2 Cabrio owned by Jean Pierre Kebbe, 964 Cabrio owned by Michel Nassif, 944 owned by Michel Chahine and the 930 owned by Henri Azadian.

Each and every one of these cars is a legend by itself. The 964 was the first car to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as options and was considered to be 85% new as compared to its predecessor. The 993 Cabrio is Porsche’s last air-cooled 911 and also Porsche claims that every part of the car was designed from the ground up, including the engine and only 20% of its parts were carried over from the previous generation, in addition, the car was promoted via its role of safety car during the 1994 Formula One season. The 911 Targa is considered to be the newcomer to the Classic scene of Porsche and is now among the highest in demand. The 944 S2 Cabrio covered heavily in our articles is one of those often forgotten oddities of the automotive world. Its recipe is simple: it is the best, most powerful, final non-turbo iteration of the Porsche 944. And finally the 930 or as we would like to call it the Widow Maker and this car truly lives up to the legend which it carries its name.

The trip back in time was a refresher of memory for many of us and what is better than these amazing machines to feat your eyes on and remember the great days and the superb history of Porsche since the 1970’s.

A BMW Classic Love Story

ADVERTISEMENT

Image Credit : K8 Car Photography

Make : BMW
Model : E24 M635csi
Year : 1980

Owner : Alaa al-Shami
Country : Lebanon

Each and every one of us has a true love in his life, love can be defined in many ways and can include a passion for cars, hobbies, brotherhood, family and that special someone.

Our love story goes back to many years before when Alaa had a beyond compare love story with his future Mrs. Alaa and another love affair that dominated his passion.

Out of his passion and love affair, Alaa couldn’t help but to spread his love on the most important things in his life.

He needed to be ready and absolutely be sure about the most important decision of his lifetime, “do I keep my love affair or do I pop the question of lifetime commitment with the person I love the most?”

Usually, a decision like that is easy, but what we didn’t tell you is that his love affair is with a classic BMW from 1980, so yes it is an important question.

So, Alaa waited till he was done with the BMW and decided to keep both relationships and got down on his knees on that snowy wintery morning to make a lifetime commitment.

Obviously, the future Mrs. Alaa couldn’t say no as she was getting the deal of her life, a gentleman with love above infinity and a classic car to stamp their love.

And that is how a love story like no other began and will continue to an ever after.

As for the Classic BMW, well it is a 1980 BMW E24 6 series M635 csi.

The BMW E24 is the first generation of BMW 6 Series grand tourer coupes and was produced from January 1976 to April 1989.  The BMW E24 6 series replaced the E9 coupes and the German manufacturer took a break for 16 years before bringing the E63 6 series back again in 2004.

The E24 was produced solely in a 2-door coupe body style which generated lots of interest among the bimmer lovers.

The M635CSi is the first of the BMW M6 model line and is the second true “M car” produced after the BMW M1.

The E24 M635CSi (called the M6 in North America and Japan) is considered the start of the M6 model line.

It has a 3.5L engine M90 engine generating 215 hp coped with a 304 Nm torque and reaches 222 Km/h

In 1980, the fuel-injection systems changed from Bosch L-jetronic to Bosch Motronic. And also The 635CSi central locking system could be operated from the passenger door and trunk, a new option at that time.

There’s no doubt, that this car is a true classic icon irrespective of its market value as it defined the “M” direction of the BMW and became one of the most desirable cars of the 1980’s era.
