If there was ever a vintage advertisement that epitomize's Analog:Shift's weekly inspirational social media posts (every Friday afternoon for the past decade, if you don't follow us!), this amazing ad dated 1988 would be it!
Featuring a double-page spread rear perspective of a 930 Turbo with four wheels off the ground sailing off towards a darkening horizon with gravel flying about beneath it, this iconic image is about as uncompromising a message as the car is as uncompromising a performance machine.
Nicknamed the 'Widow Maker' for its propensity to sling unsuspecting drivers off the road with a healthy wallop of turbo boost kicking in at high rpm, the 930 in all of its whale-tailed glory is one of the most respected, feared, and downright awesome Porsche cars of all time.
We can't think of a better image to drive that message home!
ABOUT OUR COLLABORATION WITH AD PATINA
We're thrilled to be collaborating once again with our longtime friend Nick at Ad Patina to bring you a selection of the most-popular and hard to find original vintage magazine advertisements curated specifically for Analog:Shift!
Scouring the world for forgotten marketing treasures, Ad Patina's raison de être very much mimics our own - to hunt down these wonderful bits of history, preserve and restore them as needed, and share them with an enthusiastic community.
These documents of horological and advertising history have entered the collecting conversation as the ultimate accompanying accessory to go along with hobbies and passions. They have found themselves framed in homes and offices around the world.
Every one of these wonderful pieces is a genuine, vintage advertisement that has been professionally framed to ensure years of enjoyment to come - no reprints or reproductions here!
Much like a traditional piece of art - a painting or photograph - an original advertisement can be appreciated for its design as well as for its power to evoke nostalgia. Something vintage enthusiasts know all about!
