Normally, I associate 'The Price is Right' with sick days. It is that lone mid-day beacon of entertaining television to watch from the comfort of your couch swathed in blankets and the heater cranked up while your muscles ache and your head throbs from flu-like symptoms. I can't remember healthily watching an episode of The Price is Right since I was young enough to have summers off of school. That said, I may have to make it a priority to watch the show now that I know they'll be giving away a Porsche next week. Heck, California isn't that far away, I could probably go be an audience member.
More than $500,000 in cars will be given away next week. In addition to the beautiful silver 991 Carrera, they'll also be giving away an Audi R8, a BMW 640i convertible, a Jaguar XK convertible, and a Mercedes-Benz SL550 convertible. I can't help but notice that four of the five of those 'dream cars' are made in Germany. Obviously, there is a chance that none of these cars will actually be won, and of course, contestants would have to pay taxes on their winning, including any of these 'dream cars'. Read the full details from the CBS press release at the bottom.
