So, When Somebody Asks You What Kind Of Car You Have, What Do You Say?

Recommended Posts

I was the guy that started that 'Stupidest Money' thread. I think that many Porsche owners take themselves too seriously.

Porsche mostly acquired its status baggage in the 80s, when it became the darling car of 'achievers'. Before that, Porsche's were more oddball and quirky than they were straight up status symbols. Since then, its image has been a product of the people who drove them, not the other way around.

I think if you can't just tell people what you drive, then either you hang around with the wrong people or you might not be comfortable enough in your skin to drive something so extroverted.

EDIT: I say this as someone who truly loves Porsches, by the way, including my own little plain-jane C2!

I do sales so it does make a difference.. If I am with customers that I know have a lot of $$ I am fine with discussing my 911. If not, then I say my jeep. Let's be real, it's not about being comfortable in your own skin it is more about the perception that people that don't have a porsche, ferrari etc.. have have when you pull up in a 100K ride..

What do you drive?  "A Porsche 911."   Porsche has never moved away from 911.  911 is and has always been the model.  The other numbers 996, 997, 991 are "internal designations" for various generations.

If it's a Porsche guy asking I say 996, otherwise I say 911.
