1 of 13: Gemballa Avalanche/Cyrrus Porsche 911 Turbo - 1988
November 14, 2015
Turns out I've happened upon a very rare and special Porsche. The car is a Gemballa Cyruss (or is it Avalanche?), one of just two in Japan.
This 911 Coupe was built in 1988. It has a 3,400cc flat 6 engine.
I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way,
which would be not cool! <More>
