Taftster - this ad brought back some good memories:
I've had the pleasure of owning more than a few European cars. Nothing exotic, mind you, but something a bit more exciting than a downline 4-door domestic sedan. A '67 911, a '74 914, and an '88 924S - so as I say, pretty entry-level as Porsche standards go. But I'll say one thing: I didn't own three of them because I was disappointed in the first one...
Even at the least expensive end of the scale, those folks put together some pretty zippy little automobiles. The fit and finish was "very good" to "excellent" on all of mine, and I could easily find a curvy road or even a long straight and experience the best of what those cars were built to do.
I'm an old stoplight-to-stoplight and 1/4-mile drag racer...a guy who cut his teeth on rumbling American V-8s, but I'd be happy to own a Porsche any day! 😋
Agreed! The 1923 Jordan Playboy "Somewhere west of Laramie" ad was the first to sell a car's image rather than its substance. It is still considered one of the greatest car ads of all time.
