I’ve had this video on my hard drive for a couple years now… not sure why I haven’t shared it before now… I think it may still be available on the Porsche website, but it looks like there’s only a flash version of it up there. I was lucky to grab the Quicktime version when I did.

For those of you who may not have understood my excitement of getting to finally drive a Porsche 911 a few weeks back, this little movie does a pretty good job of showing what it’s like to be bitten by the Porsche bug. The quote that sums it up best is “There’s the moment you know you want one… there’s the moment you first own one… and for the truly afflicted, there’s the decade or two that passes in between.”

I’m TRULY afflicted. Porsche, there is no substitute.


Well, I’ve re-watched this movie at least a half-dozen times since re-posting it here the other day, and each and every time, I get goosebumps. There are two other videos that come to mind that have that effect on me: “The Shot” (video|audio) and the Jimmy V ESPY speech.
