A very Happy Ascension day to one and all. Incredibly despite being popular across much of Europe (and naturally a lot of ‘ponting’ is taking place in the parts where they rarely translate “work ethic” into the local lingo), it seems not to be a holiday in Malta…

Old habits die hard, but instead of looking at Weissach’s finest today, over to Maranello where issue 1002 corresponds to the magnificent in the ex-Scuderia Montjuich Ferrari 512M chassis number which amongst… Continue reading

Hello and welcome to Issue 1001 of Exchange Invest. To celebrate yesterday’s modest milestone, I published a post on LinkedIn last night briefly describing the history and development of this very newsletter. Lest you are interested in “back stage” discussion about Exchange Invest you can read it here.

Good Morning and welcome to Monday’s Exchange Invest. It’s Issue 999…smart money may now even be banking on a big figure change (apart from the HFT fraternity who naturally see a million milli-chances before we have to actually change a big digit).

At the same time, our delightful 900 series review of many of the greatest Porsche models has now alas, concluded… I’ll miss it too. Thanks for all the feedback throughout – pics of readers’ Porsches and those spotted… Continue reading

It will disappoint many correspondents that there is (sort of) a Porsche 998. The number was first deployed for the design of what became the 911 series successor to type 997. However, given the weight of parish correspondence, predominantly from the UK, it would be remiss of me to omit from correlating this issue with a great British engine! 998 is indeed the cc of the engine used in all manner of wondrous machines from Mini Coopers (and indeed the… Continue reading

Welcome to Issue 997 of Exchange Invest which coincides with the 6th generation 911 in Porsche type number terms… All human life can be easily divided in 2 by the way: the time before you drive a Porsche 911 (of whichever vintage) and the time after….it’s a kind Zuffenhausen Zen experience.

I am Finance Malta’s 10th anniversary conference today, my keynote is coming up this afternoon just before the finance minister, Professor Scicluna provides the closing address. I’ll be running… Continue reading

Good Morning and welcome to Issue 996 of the Exchange Invest daily bulletin which coincides with the Porsche type number for the 5th generation 911 where water cooling came in and most everything was changed, apart from the basic layout/silhouette of the legendary rear engined sports car. Type 996 was produced between 1998 and 2004. A stunning motor car in every respect and imho highly collectable.

Incidentally, tomorrow’s issue 997 will be sent from the 10th anniversary Finance Malta Conference… Continue reading

Issue 995 of Exchange Invest coincides with the Porsche 995 a 3 litre V8 low drag aluminium body study for the German government dating back to 1979 which when squinted at reveals a clear relationship to the 928…

Good Morning and welcome to a whole new week! Viewed through the lens of Exchange Invest issues, it’s 994 which in Porsche terminology relates to the original design number for what later became the 964 Turbo (part of the 3rd generation 911 series). Fabulous machine.

Issue 993 of Exchange Invest coincides with a remarkable moment in Porsche design history – the last air cooled 911, the series 4 produced between 1993 and early 1998. A delightful machine and the last to have a direct lineage to the original 911 in design terms, albeit this was a 3.6 litre machine which rather dwarves the original 911/912 at 2000 and 1600 cc respectively.
