Originally released in 1963, the performance-focused Porsche 911 might just be the single most iconic sports car ever made. At the very least, it’s been the truest to its original intent — a driver’s vehicle made almost exclusively for the joy of the ride — since its inception. And while there have been subtle stylistic variations over the years, every single member of the 911 family is distinctly recognizable as a Porsche. This purity of purpose and styling, we believe, has played a huge part in the timelessness of Porsche’s flagship car and helped it to cultivate a cult-like following that’s as strong today as it ever was. It’s this fanfare and automotive excellence that has inspired us to put together this week’s everyday carry pocket dump. Whether you just want to show off your allegiance or you need a loadout fit for your favorite ride, this pocket gear will suit you just fine.
