    1. No. He has cars offered to him. Does this on video then posts on his channel so people like you like subscribe, and post ironic “DOUG” comments.

    1. Doug has a glove box collection for his glove collection. Doug is wealthy. Doug has a matching pair of driving gloves for different cars. How ironic. Doug is the type of guy to make millions on YouTube and does whatever he wants with his life. 💙✌️

    2. ​@@pauliegualtieri1282well using hand sanitizers can be also vital on keeping anything that we touched clean.

  1. My favorite all-time car. I had an opportunity to get an ’80 (in the early aughts) for $8000, but I felt like I couldn’t justify owning a car like that living in the Northeast without a garage.

    When I finally had a garage to put something like that in, they are just completely unaffordable 🙁

    1. You made the right choice. It wouldn’t be right to buy something like this only to have it sit outside in the elements. That shows some real respect and maturity to pass on a dream car because you know you can’t properly care for it.

  2. Honestly, I miss when Doug gave his Doug Score out with his specific reasons for each category. It just helped justify his opinions.

    1. There is a reason why he doesn’t do it that way now. Cause most people didn’t watch him giving reasons and directly watched the score.

  3. Doug, you missed a quirk! There is a switch under the instrument gauges that you couldn’t figure out allows you to adjust either the driver or passenger’s mirror.

    1. I was wondering about that, doug said only the driver side mirror is power adjustable, but that would be useless, right? I mean, only the easily reachable mirror would be powered, and you’d have to reach for the passenger side to adjust the other. Thanks for clearing the confusion

  4. My dad had a brand new white factory 930 slant nose turbo in 89. First thing he did was take it to Andial in Orange County CA and had it modded. Twin turbos, larger intercooler, new exhaust and a tune. He swore that car would lift the front end shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. Was a beast.

    1. I always wondered where that car ended up.
      My dad was also friends with Bruce Canepa. Talk about a guy with unicorns.

    2. Yeah well my dad was a professional drag racer so if he swears the front end came off the ground then I have a tendancy to believe him.

  5. I believe the passenger side mirror is also adjustable using the same side mirror stock. There is a toggle switch just above the
    key when switched to the right allows the same stick to adjust the right side mirror

    1. tasteful indeed, nothing irks me more than people jamming cheap chinese head units into classic cars at their local mexican owned audio shacks. Ruins the experience of a classic car.

    2. Meh – it’s over $1000. I’d rather keep my original radio and just not listen to it because why? You have a symphony behind you already.

  6. Hey Doug, great video as always. To answer your question, that switch that you weren’t sure what it does is the selector to adjust the driver side or passenger side mirrors. You select which mirror you want to adjust and then use that mushroom to adjust the mirror.

    1. @@williamcarnero9595 Was actually common practice from the time for the passenger mirror to be manual. Some cars the passenger mirror was an option.

  7. Doug – the unlabeled button switches which side of the electric mirror adjustment you are controlling with the joystick on the door. Yes, both mirrors are electrically adjustable, and yes, that’s the least intuitive mirror adjustment I have ever seen on any car. Also even though you can lift the engine lid without lifting the rear wiper first it’s not recommended since it may damage the gears in the wiper motor. I have been lucky to have owned this car for over a year and there are still quirks I can’t figure out.

  8. The central switch for the heater controls the amount of air blown over the engine.
    It heats the car really nicely.

    1. Can confirm. Setting it to “1” will make you start sweating on a cold day, so I can’t imagine setting it to 5 or above

    2. @@savethechildren287 no if anything it would cool the engine as its taking heat off of it, it uses the engine heat instead of a heater element.
      Plus generally you are only using the heater on a cold day anyways.
      Run mine on 35 degrees C days in traffic and it’s fine. (Obviously with the heater off on those days 🙂

    3. Repent to Jesus Christ ”“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?“
      ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭25‬ ‭NIV‬‬

  9. While everyone else is explaining to Doug about the passenger side mirror switch, I’m still thinking about that heat/defrost control between the seats… I’m guessing it had something to do with the fact the 911 was air-cooled and lacking a traditional heater core, heat was taken directly from the engine exhaust like on old VWs so maybe that switch somehow regulates how much heat the regular dashboard climate controls have at their disposal? Or maybe there’s some other purpose behind the seemingly redundant switch? Anyone in the know, feel free to comment below!

    1. ​@@cmkrcs1 yeah, I thought about that too, by ruled it out since it has electric elements in the window for defrosting, and I doubt it has rear climate controls for the tiny back seats, LoL!

      But maybe it has both electric and air vented rear defrost? With German engineering, who knows? 🤷

    2. My VW bugs had something similar between the seats to allow hot air from the engine into the passenger compartment. Hopefully you didn’t have an exhaust leak at the headers! 😀

    1. @@linehandibew6205 he could at least bring one of the other two with him and make them do it. the largest one, preferably. what’s the point of having employees?

  10. Some other minor quirks on these 911’s is that many of the parts do go back to 1964 and once in a while when ordering I see a “901” part number prefix. The fuse panel in the front trunk and engine compartment are right out of the 60’s and use the old torpedo fuses. The glove box light is not visible and most owners don’t know it’s a rocker switch as well and can be turned off. It’s usually out of scope for these videos, but just how the air cooling works is interesting with baffles around the cylinders to direct air to the heads The dry sump oiling is pressure regulated and routed through a thermostat to a large engine mounted oil cooler then once that heated up there’s another thermostatically controlled oil cooler up front. Amazing. All of the old air cooled engines are designed to be race ready from the factory.

  11. I had the chance to drive a 930 Turbo. It was a 1979 model, black with tan interior, with the 4 speed manual and 260 HP, if I remember correctly. My brother bought it with a friend — each one paid half for it. I’ll never forget the sensation when the turbo kicks in. It was marvelous, even for an old car like that. I wish I could do it again, but my brother sold his share for his friend and he sold the car right before the pandemic. Pitty. I really loved it — specially because I wasn’t responsible for any maintenance costs — not that it broke a lot, it never had any serious problems. But I could just borrowed it and drive it around, you know 😊 For a guy that drives a Honda Fit, that was car heaven on Earth 😂

  12. I absolutely love Porsche’s stereo resto-mods. They look so clean and it’s so lovely to be able to have OEM Nav or even Carplay in a classic 911.

  13. love the 80’s-90’s turbo cars! I think people that have not driven them don’t understand, they have moments-of-pull that are harder than they same 0-60 thats an N/A has. The turbo has to make up for the lag, low end off the line, so when the boost hits full the turbo cars pull harder then the n/a cars. ie. 1989 shelby daytona vs 5.0 stang, same 0-60 but the dodge pulls harder <3

  14. Im in love with Porsche, I just cant stress enough how mezmerized I am with their designs, it is a brand that managed to create a design so perfect that whenever you ser those siluettes and curvy body you already know it’s a porsche, the years pass and even though they manage to polish and update the design, its escence is still in, what a perfect car the Porsche 911 are, totally in love, thanks for bringing this video to us Doug.
