The Secret Garden

There’s a secret garden in a lush corner of the world where Porsches grow from the ground like weeds — but this ain’t it. This is a garden of despair, littered with the empty souls of long forgotten Porsches. We’d like to think that old Porsches that can no longer serve their original duty go to a better place, but that’s not always the case. If a Porsche hasn’t led a particularly good life, it may end up here, in the secret garden of despair. We stumbled across this sad site in the woods of upstate New York, where there were dozens of these ghosts melting into the landscape. All was not lost, however, as we were able to rescue the soul of a 1960 356 B Cabriolet from the soil that was steadily reclaiming it. With a little luck and a lot of ambition, hopefully it will rise again.
