Porsche 911 on the world’s largest artificial island.
Finding unique locations to create good content is one of the biggest challenges faced by original content creators. Especially in a place where the “outdoors” is only brown in color with some bits and pieces of green sprouting here and there.
So when I get a Porsche 993 Turbo S where do I create content around it? Dubai has made the world’s biggest ferris wheel on a smaller man-made island. I racked my brain trying to think of any picture of a car with the ferris wheel in the background and nothing came to mind. I thought to myself will I be the first to publish this picture? Well, I did make the photograph but still do not know if I am the first. I guess time will tell.
We decide on the date and time for the shoot. We meet at the location at 5:30 am in the morning thinking that it is early morning and it should be pretty much deserted and we can do as we please. We were wrong.
There is a lot of construction going on at the Palm Jumeirah with 5-star hotels being constructed all over the place. So the construction workers start early in the morning and the drivers of their buses and vans are homicidal and suicidal maniacs. While we were doing rolling shots of the Porsche in the 1.4km long tunnel connecting the trunk of the Palm to the outer crescent we had these minibus drivers tailgate us, harass us, flash at us nonstop, undertake us, overtake us and make last-minute lane changes and swerve all over the place. This is all after we had our hazards on at 80kph and gave them signals on as to proceed. In a 5 or 6 lane tunnel, they would enjoy passing us as close as possible. My heart was in my mouth I swear to god!
Now the car in the pictures here is a 1997 Porsche TurboS. It is an air-cooled Porsche. That by itself is enough said.
Enjoy the pictures and video.
Oh and yeah apparently the new Porsche Gold is based on the above model
Thank you to Tomini Classics in Dubai for bringing out their valuable 993.
