I am passionately driven for Porsche since I was a child. Its an essential element that triggers my instinct constantly in pursuit for an adrenaline rush; a feeling that tends to revive my senses everytime I strive for an ultimate satisfation...with no compromise

'My tale of passion and obsession for Porsche and Motorsport'







Highlights of MY 'Porsche Platz'
'Platz': A German word for Place or Plaza.

This is my garage lounge area. A place where I can kick back, relax, and self indulge on the panoramic view of my Porsche Platz.


This is an example of one line showcase...
A countless collection of limited edition cast Porsche models, Porsche memorabilia, and other motorsport memorabilia displayed all over the garage.



Precious collection of autographed memorabilia of Ayrton Senna (primarily) and others...

"And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high".

"If you have God on your side, everything becomes clear"
Ayrton Senna

Monaco
Some pics of my Motorsport related visit and more...
Monaco is synonymous with Formula one (F1), Its dedication to motorsport dates back to nearly eight decades.
The Monaco (Monte-Carlo) Grand Prix Circuit is recognised to be the shortest, most dangerous, and yet THE place where most pretigious motorsport races take place in the world. Named by many motorsport icons as the "Jewel of the F1 Crown"...



1991 Virginia USA
This was my first Porsche. This pic was taken 8 months after I had bought the car; a 1990 944S2 Cabrio. It was an exhilirating feeling when I first got the car to the extent I was in denial for months till I realized that it was truly MINE! :)

Harriet Tubman





Driving the Trabi in Berlin - Germany
"The name, meaning 'satellite' or 'companion' in German. It was inspired by Soviet Sputnik. The cars are often referred to as the Trabbi or Trabi.

Due to the long waiting period between ordering a Trabant and actually taking delivery (in some cases years passed as scarce materials were obtained), people who finally received one treated the car gently and were meticulous in maintaining and repairing it. The lifespan of an average Trabant was 28 years. Used Trabants would often fetch a higher price than new ones, as the former were available immediately, while the latter required the infamous long wait."

A concise explanation:

On
e who is addicted to Porsches to the extent of owning one or many. Yet, one that possess a great deal of 'know how' and broad-based knowledge about anything that relates to Porsche.

"Comedian Jerry Seinfeld proclaims himself as a Porschephile" .
"Jerry Seinfeld loves Porsches. No, actually, he adores them. He craves and yearns for all of  all 46 or so of them he owns, Seinfeld the popular comedian and former star of his longtime, self -titled TV sitcom, even has a word for the disease"

Interview with Automobile magazine May 2009

Nevertheless, many more Porschephiles live and indulge on the obsession...



Welcome to MY Porschephile website

I'm a fortunate avid Porsche collector; I own several race bred Porsches, each of which is a unique and yet a modified variant.

I try to occasionaly fine tune this site in order to share my 'Porsche love affair and mystique' story with Porsche enthusiasts/community.

Regards,

Eng. Yousef Fittiani
Founding member/VP Porsche Club Kuwait

With Dr. Frank Walliser
The over all project manager for the Porsche 918 Spyder during a VIP invitation for an exclusive preview.

A quote from Top Gear Magazine about the 918 Spyder:
"The performance headlines are this. Acceleration from 0-62mph in ‘less than three’ seconds. Zero to 125mph in a time that almost matches a Bugatti Veyron. And a Nürburgring lap time (so far verified only on Porsche’s supernaturally accurate simulators), of 7.22. That’s 10 seconds faster than the old Carrera GT."

http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/top-gear-porsche-918-spyder-first-ride-2012-03-19

Personally, I would NOT refer to a Carrera GT as being "old". Rather its the predecessor to the 918. It is a marvel to date and shall continue to be one...
A Porsche is never OLD. You may regard one as being older model BUT not old.
"The older it gets, the more it becomes it self"

MY ENDORSEMENTS

 The Royal Automobile Museum Jordan

One of the most fascinating car museums in the Middle-east region is the late King Hussein Royal Automobile Museum in Jordan. It's beyond just mere a precious car collection, it documents and yet illustrates one king's passion for cars, his milestone, and more. It really touched my heart. What I would call a 'palliasse of an auto museum'.

DVDs/Movies:

To truly undertand ONEs' Porsche obsession or rather what a Porsche Obsessive Disorder (POD) is all about, I would Suggest watching the following movies:
"100 Porsches and me".
"Urban outlaw" by Magnus Walker.

"SAVE THE RING"

My visit to Nurburgring: The longest racing circuit in the world and yet the most dangerous with nearly 87 years of racing history.
I had an exclusive orientation and a visit to the entire facility including the VIP paddock, winners podium, media rooms, garages, and lots more. Nevertheless, staying over at Dorint Nurburgring hotel which overlooks the F1 segment of the
circuit...a very unique experience.



 

The obsession does NOT end with me. Even my pets inherited their names from Porsche
 


I am a pretty Macaw. Many say that I resemble the logo of the renowned German auto paint company "Glasurit" :)
My name is "CARRERA" and my tiny friend in the cage beneath me. his name is "CAYMAN"...We love Porsches!

I am a Sphynx cat; a unique exotic cat.
I am quick and thats why I was named "SPYDER".
