Porsche oldies have for long been in the radar of restorers who passionately resurrect several monikers that have left numerous hearts of its purists throbbing.

Roughly 18 months ago, when McLaren replaced its 650S with the achingly-beautiful 720S, we couldn’t ask for anything more than a drop-top version.

Ford’s Mustang is more than just a nameplate in its line-up. A moniker only becomes heritage if it retains the very principle on which it was built on. And the Mustang falls nothing short of it.
