How are you?
Oh, not so bad. You?
The Porsche 911 in three words?
Always absolutely startling.
Which simple things can make you happy?
A private joke. Blue sea glass. An organized drawer. A car interior that looks like a rocket ship.

Help a friend move a couch.
What’s your favorite road?
My new favorite is Little Tujunga Canyon Road near Los Angeles. But really, anywhere I can feel alone.

And what couldn’t you?
The Sport Chrono package.
