We're not sure what's in the water in Alabama, USA lately, but we've just received word that the YellowHammer State is getting its second Porsche police car in about a month.

Back in late February, it was announced that the Hoover PD had obtained a newer 911 thanks to drug seizure laws. This time, the car in question was a donation and the constabulary recipients are the boys and gals in blue at Homewood Police.

This time, new cruiser is a bit more interesting than a garden-variety 911, too – it's a 1981 930 Slantnose (the source article calls it a 935) – and reportedly it's a genuine example, not a conversion.

As with Hoover's 911, the 930 has been given a police-spec stripe job, and it will likely lead a reserved life on parade and school tour duty. One interesting note is that Police Chief Phil Dodd is hoping to get the two patrol Porsches together for charity events – and potentially even dice it up at Barber Motorsports Park.

Alabama authorities, we'll be happy to get pulled over when you get yourselves a 917.

Nice one, at least when pulled over for speeding it would not be so hard to put up your hands and utter the hackneyed words for the appearance in court: "Its a fair cop Guv you've got me banged to rights".

PS with my last post I went a little retro ie "928"

Big Bob bye
