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

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.

Just as we share an attitude of looking forward in linear and lateral fashion this is edition 992 of Exchange Invest which coincides with the “under development” 2020 version of the iconic 911 series… Hmmm to enhance my fund to buy one I may have to make this newsletter subscriber only before then. Food for thought.

Issue 991 of Exchange Invest coincides with the 7th generation of the Porsche “911” Carrera unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show, perhaps counterintuitively as a replacement for the 997. Magnificent motor car albeit I still scratch my head at how the 911R was essentially a GT3 without a rollcage – strikes me somebody forgot what that “R” stood for….

Welcome to another week with Exchange Invest Issue 989 corresponding to a stillborn 4 door Porsche saloon developed between 1988 and 1991 with a 3.6 litre V8 engine…the Porsche 989 is thus the spiritual parent of the current Panamera.

Exchange Invest issue 988 is here today whereas the Porsche 988 has been delayed. A Ferrari 458 competitor with a 600 pony 4 litre 8 cylinder boxer engine, or perhaps even 700 hp and…well the mid engined supercar has yet to see the light of day but here’s hoping…
