Ever since I was a child, enthusiastic about automobiles and later supported by the car and motorsport passion of my father, Josef J. Schmitz – we always watched Formula 1 and sports car races together in the early 70s – I have been involved with sports cars: After my first "great love" for the Alfa Romeo brand and a few wonderful years in the Bertone GT and Spider Fastback models, I quickly found my way to Porsche and of course only the 911: A 911 SC 2.7 was 21 years old my first Porsche and thus also the first real contact with this cult car. This was followed by various 911 3.2 Cabrio, Turbolook and Turbo 1 – 3.3 before I in 1996; already in the car business, bought the first 964 RS.
Since then, the enthusiasm for this type of vehicle and its direct offshoots has not waned, in fact it has grown steadily: On the road as well as on the racetrack, these vehicles are the ultimate driving pleasure for me; pure – pure and unadulterated, still real Porsche, just as it should be for me. As a logical consequence of this, it was also clear that I should specialize in this small segment of the market, this niche of the rare lightweight Porsche. Because only what is done with passion has a real chance of success and so I was able to infect many other car enthusiasts with this RS virus.
