    How much do you like the Porsche Brand?

    Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays.

    Just wondering....counting your presents for Christmas and new year, do you have any Porsche/Porsche Design branded items? (non automotive).

    These could include sunglasses, watches, shoes, blackberry, etc. & why did you choose the said item?

    Re: How much do you like the Porsche Brand?

    I got a Porsche motor sports jacketicon from my in-laws. They have 2 Porsches and we do rallies together so we all thought we would get one because.....well, it just looks cool.

    Re: How much do you like the Porsche Brand?

    Just bought a hat and I have some posters. Everything else is way overpriced for the quality and design. I'm not a stranger to luxury goods, but Porsche Design is not worth it.

    If you visit your local dealer, you can often find discounted giftsicon and scale models.

    I'm all loaded up on PD gear...nothing under the tree this year though with the Porsche or Porsche Design brand on it.
    The best item from Porsche Design is the reading glasses; look great, fit well, super lightweight. Can only buy them in a PD store unfortunately...not available at any dealer or online.

    Re: How much do you like the Porsche Brand?

    I just bought this. Porsche Bike - Bike - Sports - Porsche Driver's Selection

    Seriously? NO. I think I have given all the money I wanted to for my BS and will be happy to part with some more of my hard-earned moolah (poor scientist) when/if the time comes for another sports car with the Porsche badge. Used 911.
    Regarding the above bike, I bought a carbon road bike, a madone 4.5 from Trek for $ 2500 with the Shimano Ultegra groupset and upgraded the wheels to aura 5 carbon/aluminium wheels. For a total of 4500 in investment. Porsche should stick to sports cars. Those I love. Other badge-conscious types with money should buy plenty of Macans and Cayennes ( high end ones) so that Porsche continues to make sports cars. Muchas Gracias.

    Re: How much do you like the Porsche Brand?

    the Trek Madone 4.5 is a great ride..
    I'm still on my (now retro) 5200 OCLV frame (everything else has been changed/modified)..
    There was a great video about comparing the old 5500 OCLV to a modern Madone ... interesting to hear the review.. (I think it was on GCN).

    Agree - I use their prescription frame glasses - good design, light and fit is fantastic. Makes my other glasses feel er... dated.

    Re: How much do you like the Porsche Brand?

    My "contribution" to the "Club".....Numerous Porsche shirts. Numerous 1/43 Porsche models on my model train layout. Several Porsche posters on the "train room" walls. A "10 pound" book entitled "Porsche, origin of the species. (got that as a birthday gift). Lots of Porsche literature. Visited the Porsche factory and museum in Zuffenhausen on our last vacation a few months ago. Membership in the PCA. Some people have pictures of their family members (kids, wives, grandchildren, etc), when they open to their desk tops on their phones, computers, etc......I have a picture of my Porsche. And of course the required "Porsche Parking Only" sign in the garage. Been a Porsche fan for many years and an owner for about two years. Never too old to enjoy your childhood! Still very enthused. Phycologists, and/or Psychiatrists can feel free to comment!

    Re: How much do you like the Porsche Brand?

    Got a diecast model as a Christmas gift. Pretty nice. I was sort of hoping for a hat. Probably will not buy that for myself. I also got some Chevy shirts. I will wear them while sriving my non Chevy Cayman.

    Re: How much do you like the Porsche Brand?

    hmmm... I kinda thought that more would have purchased items which had a similar design language and brand....

    I saw the Porsche design phones but the extra premium over the standard phones didnt make sense to me....

    Bought a Martini Racing full size umbrella I use when I take my kids to their school bus stop in the morning. Ended up getting another one for free for my wife from the dealer when we picked up her Macan GTS.
