5 letters for $450, more letters are extra.

Credit to them for thinking of the idea, I'm sure there are people who would pay $450 to have their name on their Porsche.

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

I don't think I would want to get rid of whatever was there before. Maybe the Boxster...

I saw a Mercedes the other day with the license plate 'MRCEDES'. Perhaps that was for the people that couldn't see the logo?

Yes, but the Porsche wasn't wide enough so thats the short version!

A Cayenne is the closest thing to a perfect road-going SUV around. They are very nice, and when you drive one, it is impossible to not know that you're driving a Porsche. Same with the Boxster.

I like fast, even if it is ugly. I still love the Subaru Impreza WRX STi.



That grill makes me want to vomit. But I still likes it.

Yeah, still. Doesn't make a 911 a bad car. Expensive maybe, a bad car not so much.

I'd go with:

"Pinch Me"

Because I'm pretty sure if I had a Porsche to put it on, I'd be in a dream.

Of course. 911s are amazing cars (well, maybe not so much with the 997 - it's a bit watered down these days).

I know enough.

When it comes to a sports car, what's important?

Looks, comfort, performance. Not necessarily in that order.

Comfort? Sure, it's probably nice inside. Comfort isn't hard to do.

Performance? I'm sure it goes okay. No better than a GTI for 1/4 the cost, mind you.

Looks? Jesus ****ing christ, they are the ugliest mother****ing things I've ever seen. I wouldn't be caught dead in one.

Anyway, gimme a 4.5" jacked TJ sitting on 35's any day - something actually recreationally useful, as opposed to "ooh look, I can do 0-100 in 4.3 seconds - wait, wait, another red light...".

A true sports car has only 2 seats.
4 seats is a family car.

Oh and on the Porsche, My Other Car Is An Airplane
