    Look at this article

    Bill MacEachern has travelled 1 150 000 kilometres with his Porsche 911 Turbo 1976.

    In addition to being a real feat to accumulate as much mileage with a car, that Ontario has done with a car absolutely extraordinary. In fact, the Porsche 930 was the first car with a turbo charger to be commercialized by the Stuttgart manufacturer.

    It is also important to know that this type of car does not behave as a Corolla which leaves the dealer. A Porsche 911 Turbo 41 years old, it is driver! There is no driving assistance, the comfort is minimal and safety elements are archaic.

    In making the calculation, we find that he has travelled an average of 28 000 kilometres per year. When in the video presented by Porsche, Bill MacEachern explains us what is his work, everything is explained better.

    His next goal is to reach the million miles. The meter displays currently 725 000. He is confident that his son takes over, if it is necessary.

    This Porsche Turbo, he uses it daily or almost daily. Even in the climate of ontario sometimes perilous. This 911 is not his only vehicle. It also has a Toyota Supra Twin Turbo. Sir, you have a lot of taste and we will tip our hat to!
