I spend a good amount of time each week on-line researching articles, looking for content, etc. Occasionally, I find some really good stuff that I just can’t wait to share. I’m sure most of you are familiar with the most recent Porsche commercial for the Cayenne GTS. The concept of the commercial is based on the idea of Porsche bloodlines and how no matter what type of Porsche you are driving, it’s still a Porsche. While I agree with the concept and I even like the commercial, it simply doesn’t compare to some of the older, vintage Porsche commercials.
In my search, I’ve come across a treasure trove of old Porsche commercials. The one below is my favorite as it quotes Professor Dr. Ferdinand Porsche directly and as it relates to Porsche, I don’t think truer words could be spoken:
For something to endure it must be unique yet so universal anyone can appreciate it. Timeless Design is wasted if it can’t survive. This is why we race and test our cars so hard. Creating something that time can not erode, something that ignores time both physically and in concept. This is the ultimate victory.
