911 50th.

Both Audi and Porsche are finally embracing their roots.  Hardly an advertisement can be found in the last year or so without an early 911 in Porsche's case and an ur quattro in Audi's case (see June 3 post for Audi's latest).  It's about time they pay homage to the 2 cars that single-handedly transformed each of them into serious players in the automotive industry.

This new 50th anniversary edition 911 even steals the early cars' popular 'slate gray' paint and houndstooth seat inserts!

After 50 years, only a few similarities remain!
