I don’t know what it is about Porsche and artists, but the iconic 911 seems to spark some strange ideas. Take this chocolate covered Porsche that would even have Willy Wonka asking, “why?” That’s right, a chocolate covered Porsche (at least they covered it in plastic first).
According to a story on Autoblog.nl, a Porsche dealer in the Netherlands (Porsche Centrum Gelderland) hired chocolatier Jan Blancken and his crew to drown an already delicious 997 Carrera S in almost 400 lbs (175 kilos) of chocolate. The car now sits in the Porsche dealer’s showroom amongst other just as sweet models.
When I first read this story my immediate reaction was, why? Now I know. Google “chocolate covered porsche” and look at all the references (and the story is just starting). Say what you want, but someone knows how to get attention to their dealership. 🙂
