In today’s PorscheCooled Podcast Michael presents episode 54 of owner stories with Zander from Adelaide, Australia. As a kid Zander had an interest in Porsche. Not to mention growing up in Adelaide with The F1 and watching Motorsport on TV left a lasting impression. In particular, seeing Jim Richards and Peter Fitzgerald duelling it out in Porsches. This is when he realised that one day, he needed to have one. Zander’s pre-Porsche car journey included a Fiat Abarth 850 TC, a few Japanese imports, BMWs including a couple of 2002’s and a 90s Mercedes 180E which he still dailies.

Zander's Porsche passion is strong. His first Porsche was a ’66 912 which he spent 7 years restoring. This car is now owned by Steven from Owner Stories #38 having purchased it from Zander earlier this year. After selling his prized Porsche, Zander needed another one. He searched out a 996 GT3 road car which fell through, but his love of Australian Motorsport ultimately led him to a 2003 996 GT3 Cup car. Not just any 911 cup car, but one raced by Peter Fitzgerald. 

Zander had only had his new 911 a few days when we recorded this, but his enthusiasm was contagious. Some of you may recall this GT3 as it was previously owned by James @porschplatz - a friend of PorscheCooled and from Owner Stories #8. James had done an amazing job of finding and restoring this 911 with period correct ’04 livery. Zander is the new custodian of this amazing track day 911 GT3 and couldn’t be happier.
