If you could choose a sports car to drive for work, what would you pick?

I once had a French brother-in-law, who didn't want to believe the National Police, drove around in a Porsche, he laughed at us, until he came across a police Porsche on the highway, you should have seen the look on his face 😄

A lot of European countries should probably use Porsches. The French could use them for efficiently backing up during retreats. In Poland, Porsche's history speaks for itself. I mean back in the 30s Porsches raced through the entire country in days; the criminals would have no chance.

I remember having toy police cars as a child, which were indeed Porsches. It never occurred to me until now that it is indeed a bit unusual.

To add to the introduction story: yes the Dutch police in Holland like everywhere also used local produced cars for the police, they used the Volvo 343 a lot which is the last car designed by DAF (as DAF 77) before the takeover from Volvo, and manufactured in Eindhoven. The Porches were exclusively for highway patrol.

i think crime would've taken a real flight if we would've used DAF's

My dad who served in the highway patrol in the 60's and 70's and had a lot of fun and action driving that Porsche, even got married in one.

That's like when you were persuading your dad as a kid to buy you something (like a game or a computer etc.) . "Dad you can do homework faster and more efficiently, it also boosts your confidence."

Well 911 isn't our number, it's 112

Hammond is lucky to be alive, but I think WE are even more lucky he's still around.

I was in Amsterdam many years ago, late 80’s. About six of us were enjoying a drink on a pavement outside a bar. We heard the unmistakeable sound of a European siren and a car came to a halt just across the road from where we were sitting and a white 911 with Politie written on the side.

So true! Saw it myself in 1988. They ran them with T tops and the roof open even in winter, and with white leather suits and Italian submachineguns

@johngledhill2970

True, I got stopped by one for speeding in my truck in the 80's, my excuse was that I was trying to get to the ferry on time, he let me go! The Dutch are brilliant!

@tooyoungtobeold8756
@tooyoungtobeold8756

I remember seeing them, The guy was parked, roof off, and he was wearing a leather coat, crash helmet and goggles.

Im pretty sure that the police commissioner just wanted to have a sports car but it cant be out of his pocket so he just asked for it for the entire force.
