Porsche 356 Speedster Replica in 90210
Now when it comes to 90210 you have to go with the original. The theme song sends you back to that time and you can see the colors and characters on the screen. While I did watch from time to time back in the day, I steered clear of the new show when it came out. I just wasn't interested in a copy cat style show, especially when I knew that I couldn't get the images of the original cast out of my head.
This 356 Speedster Replica was in the premiere episode. Clearly it's emanating the core of the show, life in California, especially that of rich high school kids that can afford to take a 356 to the beach, surfboard and all. The car itself isn't my favorite, the matte black looks really washed out in the "June gloom" beach haze, but it's nice to know that it can hold a surfboard when the time comes. I think taking a board with a convertible looks a bit silly, but if that's your thing at least you know it's possible. I think the colors here do match the setting, the car isn't flashy which is a nice change at least body wise, but I don't know how I feel about the 356 being used in the premiere. It clearly suggests money, I mean who takes a replica out on the town, let alone to the beach?
I can't say that I saw this episode, but the shot is both eye catching and Porsche worthy. I hope that it got a few more shots in the episode, but as Porsche fans know most of the time we're lucky to get a glimpse let alone an action scene.
