The Farmer continues his daily duties, while running his popular ‘Harry’s Garage’ YouTube channel.
For all car enthusiasts, there is a specific model that holds a special place like the one that started the passion and fascination for anything automotive. While most agree that it would be a poster car like the Ferrari F40 or Lamborghini Countach, for British Farmer Harry Metcalfe, the Porsche 930 Turbo S stands at the pinnacle of his love of cars. Now recognized as a successful automotive YouTube star with more than 500,000 subscribers, Metcalfe began his life as an aspiring engineer born into a family of hardworking farmers. Before starting ‘Harry’s Garage’, the 63-year-old spent all his time running a 122-hectare farm in the English countryside while dedicating a small portion of his earnings to his car collection.

Harry’s obsession for collecting cars came with the purchase of his first Porsche, a black 993 generation 911 Turbo used solely as a daily driver after co-funding Evomagazine in1998. The hobby of acquiring rare Porsche examples quickly became a second profession, as British motoring press caught wind of his growing garage that now included an early Porsche 930 and another 993 Turbo converted to a GT2 spec. After searching for the perfect example to compliment his fleet, Harry Metcalfe finally found a unique 1998 Porsche 911 Turbo in late 2021 courtesy of the carmaker’s Sonderwunsch personalization program. The Guardsred 930 Turbo S featured a Group-4-inspired front spoiler with an updated oil cooler, quad exhausts, and the seats and steering wheel from a 959. The car also left the factory with 17-inch RUF alloys and a 3.4-liter Motorsport engine making more than 400 horsepower. The newest addition to Harry Metcalfe’s collection now holds the title of his prized possession, even making an appearance on Harry’s Garage during a 1,250-mile road trip through southern Europe. Harry Metcalfe explains his love for the Porsche 930 Turbo S by stating “You can chase perfect handling or refinement, but sometimes the car you actually want to own is the one with the quirky nature.” View all of the current Porsche 911 Turbo S examples for sale on duPont REGISTRY by clicking on the link below.
