The year's coolest new cars debut at the Paris Auto Show.  Fans of the Great Places Blogmaster will recall a recent post on the subject of the 50 worst cars in the world a week or so ago. 

Today, however, your Blogmaster recommends that you check out this link, which illustrates eight of the coolest cars in the spotlight at the Paris Auto Show.

There, you'll find this beauty, the 911 Porsche Speedster, the throwback to the amazing Porsche 356 that ended production in 1965. 

The Speedster 911, offering a 408-horsepower, six-cylinder engine with a seven-speed automatic transmission. 

Production will be limited to just 356 cars, which will have lower windshields than other 911,s as well as a "double-bubble" hardcover that can substitute for the manually-operated cloth top.

And the paint color?  "Pure Blue," developed specifically for the Speedster 911.

"I am fed up with seeing 20-year-old models advertise anti-wrinkle creams for women aged 60," he tells London's Metro. "Beauty does not end at 40 or 50."

Elderly women, according to Duyos, are 
"just as beautiful as 20-year-olds."
