Last week we published our third annual Christmas Gift List for the Porsche lover on your shopping list. Admittedly, that list is quite long and, for some, possibly too long. Over the last four (4) days we received more than 100 emails asking for specific gift recommendations from the items on that list. While we don’t mind answering, and we’ll always do our best to get back to you quickly, we though it might be worthwhile to list the gifts we know sell the best. Below is a list of the 10 Porsche related items that seem to sell more than any others. Please take a minute to “like” this post on Facebook by using either the button above or below. It would be greatly appreciated!
The 8 Most Popular Porsche Related Gift Ideas
1. It would seem a lot of Porsche owners are like minded. Either we have a love of gadgets or we’re still kids at heart. In my case it’s a bit of bother. Either way, Porsche RC cars sell more than anything else we recommend. Specifically, the Tamiya Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car ’08 White and the Porsche 911 GT3 VIP 2007. Both of these Porsche RC cars are “Ready to Run” meaning once you add a a 7.2v rechargeable battery for the car and batteries for the remote you are good to go. We have one in our collection and recommend it without hesitation. If you want, check out our video review from last year.
2. Objects in Mirror Are Losing Decals. These decals replace your existing side mirror decals. They sell well for two simply reasons. They are incredibly cheap and they are fun.
3. A subscription to a printed Porsche magazine is still big on everyone’s wish list. While Excellence: The Magazine About Porsche is the most popular here on PorschePurist, Total 911 while pricey in the US, is a very close second. You can’t go wrong with either one.
4. Porsche related books are always popular. However, with so many available, how do you decide? If past sales are any indication, then one of these three (3) books might be a good idea: The Allure of the Automobile (Our Review); Porsche: The Fine Art of the Sports Car (Our Review); A French Kiss with Death: Steve McQueen and the Making of Le Mans (Our Review).
5. A DVD of the ultimate racing and Porsche movie, Le Mans.
6. After watching the premier of Top Gear USA, it’s pretty easy to see why Complete Seasons of the original Top Gear on DVD featuring Jeremy Clarkson and company are so popular.
7. It’s getting easier and easier to make and edit home movies. Now, documenting your days at the track or scenic rides in your Porsche is simple using the GoPro HERO3: White Edition.
