I did a quick search and didn’t see previous history- so here goes a Garage Envy thread.

The image I attach of it a garage and it is in Carlton. I’ve known of it for a few years now. I always go down this street when getting through town just to look at it. 

It houses Jaguars and that’s ok. But the glass, the height, the minimalist styling including cupboards that I only just noticed today ooze inner city modern. 

Yeah maybe a little obnoxious and you may feel scared of being robbed, but geez would love to have this garage! With a Porsche inside!

Perhaps being a bit conservative but a one way  window tint or a tint in colour of choice on those bottom glass panels for a bit of privacy  would look pretty good.

Totally agree ... although it does look like a fairly fresh build, so perhaps yet to be finished off?? ...

Been like this for years. You would think heat would be a bit much in there too? But I’m sure this is worked out.

As an aside VIN can I ask what type of wheels they are?  I'm going to assume FUCHS but they are not like the others I've seen.  They're cool.

Nice pat on the back for Tomnus' ego .... wonder if he's long forgotten this masterpiece with his well earned bags of gold after all that effort and moving to Braboy country. How's that 5 story council flat going Tom? An internal lift for each Porsche with a glass showroom at street level?

They are the Magnus Walker 52 outlaw wheels ..

cheers, I wonder if they're as good as the modern FUCHS that you can get here through a few distributors.  At a thousand US per wheel plus freight they'd want to be as good as they look.

^^^ just to clarify, the OTLW garage is not mine... but I might have a little garage envy when seeing it- just a little ;)

Owned by a distinguished member here Vin ... lots of effort and endurance in creating that.

@hugh can you kindly remove these vehicles and then take a picture of your garage? The heading was garage envy not car envy. Geez! 🤣

i believe you have a beaut carport correct? And if you know if any neat architectural garages please add!

This one has been a fav for a long time.

Apologies, I'll try and dig up an empty shot..................Carport (whilst not a garage) is still partially enclosed (I'm a bit of a fan of the old carport too!)
