A retired Capt America I believe is the pilot of the E9 in the upcoming "Knives Out" film.


Ten bucks says they did it with a candle stick in the library ;)

That’s 2 e9’s in 2 major movies this year, I like the trend. Maybe people will eventually stop asking me if my car is the same one 007 drove.

I assume the ref is to Racing in the Rain, not out yet, I think...If you have a dog, and an e9, you should read the book before the flick comes out...

Quite like the look of that film…just saying…and even better that it has an E9 in it.

As a late teenager I watched the likes of Highlander, Top Gun and 48 Hours etc and fell in love with Porsche 356's, which I subsequently bought, restored and loved.

Now I'm getting closer to owning an E9 so think I better find and watch some movies with E9s in so I can rekindled that feeling :)

Michael, check out "When a Man Loves a Woman", Andy Garcia/Meg Ryan (before her questionable facial restoration..); he drives a nice Polaris coupe, albeit with evil US bumpers. Caution for the squeamish: she gets drunk and smashes eggs all over a neighbor's 911..

IMDB says filming location was Boston so a New England coupe?
I used to know a guy who ran a movie car business out of Nortth Central MA. He was also a state police chief.

Not one of the greatest movies of all time, but 'The Karen Carpenter Story' had one of our Coupes in it. It shows her manager driving my 2800CS into her driveway when they got their first big break. From what I was told, he owned a Coupe and they wanted to be as authentic as possible.

I saw an ad on TV out of Philadelphia this morning about 6:30 that stated 'Racing in the Rain' would be showing in local theaters starting 8/9.

Loved the book, and will see the movie.
