The Germans have a way with aluminum. Sometimes it is engineered to cradle passengers at neck snapping speeds down the autobahn, and other times to carry passenger belongings through airport security check points at mind numbingly slow speeds. The Porsche 959 was produced from 1986-1989 and, at the time, was largely regarded to be the world’s most technologically advanced road-going sports car. No style or swagger was sacrificed in achieving such a title. For over 100 years Rimowa has been making discerning travelers look cool in airport terminals all over the world. Their slogan, “Handwerk meets Hightech” (Handcraft Meets High tech), can just as easily be carved under the hood of the 959.
