Simply thirteen years past, it had been revelling in a very triumphant Olympic Games amid claims it had been the best town within the world. London has since snatched the “best-ever Olympics” title. currently Melbourne, long-time second fiddle to Sydney, has been voted the world’s most inhabitable town for the past 2 years.

One US columnist said ‘women fell for him like ninepins and when he went to Hollywood, male film stars went and sulked in Nevada.

It shouldn’t be a surprise in a very country with such competitive instincts that the 2 cities are slugging it out for thus long (Melbourne hosted her own successful athletic contest in 1956). within the nineteenth century, Melbourne enjoyed a gold rush and therefore the world’s highest per capita champagne consumption and, despite the Victorian grandeur, was a busy port choked with high-rollers adopting fairly low morals.

The 911 has been at the very heart of the Porsche brand for the past five decades.  Few other sports cars in the world can look back on such a long tradition and continuity as the Porsche 911.

Goodwood honoured the 50th anniversary of one of the world’s most versatile and popular sports cars – the Porsche 911 – at the Festival of Speed 2013.

Today the truly versatile 911 is considered by its many devoted fans to be the quintessential sports car, and the central point of reference for all other Porsche series, as each of the marque’s other models carry a piece of the 911’s philosophy.
