An interesting article worth reading is in the June, 2005 Road & Track, comparing designer Freeman Thomas' personal 246 GT and 1969 911E (modified). His passion for both cars is evident and perspective on design spot on. Of particular interest is the contrast between a German and Italian take on the same theme. Some great photos as well. I have to admit my bias, however, as I share Mr. Thomas' love of the same cars (1972 246 GT and 1970 911 S, also modified).
