    What Gender is your Porsche?



    When you think about your car, when you talk to it as you drive along a quiet road, when you talk about it to others, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Does he/she have a name? Is it more like your first love? Or your best buddy that you want to go on a great adventure with, and let it all hang out?

    Is your Porsche a virile partner in crime? Or a delicate beauty requiring tender loving care? Let's see what you all think.

    Re: What Gender is your Porsche?

    Its a personification.An inanimate object is referred to as a female,When given a name."And to all that sail on Her" etc etc etc. Christine.Eleanor. I do not as of yet have a name for my car,eventually she will name herself. Maybe it might even be refered to by a just a name that fits and not nescesarily by the book.She is definetly a refined machine so as of right now i would probably lean towards something along those lines.

    Just ask my wife . . . she's convinced it (she ) is my mistress.

    Hey OP, this might be a good topic for a poll (which I just took the liberty of creating).

    Female... But then again, I think all cars are!

    Re: What Gender is your Porsche?

    Thanks for the feedback. And for creating a poll. I think that is an excellent idea. I'll be writing an article for my blog about the topic, so this is great stuff.

    There seems to be a lean towards 'lady love'. I personally think of mine as the woman I will never find. The one that will always be there for me. The one that responds every time I push down a little bit. The one that never complains when I take her out for a ride. The one that is always up for a trip. The one that doesn't ask for anything in return (though we are happy to give it some love).

    My father's view of his Porsche is the complete opposite. It's the Goose to his Maverick ... or wait ... is it the other way around? Ha.

    With a name like Sassy, it better be a female.
    Whatever you do, wherever you go, enjoy the drive.

    I love this:

    Re: What Gender is your Porsche?

    Mine is named Sarah. I was interested in a mid engine platform Porsche, but had no interest in a soft top. I didn't take the time look at the Cayman when it was first announced. It so happened that the first CaymanS that I saw in person was at my hotel on vacation in Hong Kong. I liked it and found myself at the dealer a month later. The introduction was therefore serendipitous. Kate Beckinsale's character in the movie Serendipity was named Sarah. It seemed like a perfect fit for her.

    Bit of both. Car seems so very feminine as I wash her down and caress every sensuous curve, but tough and masculine when I'm driving.

    The female of many species is often the larger and more aggresive speciman.
    Good analogy to explain the dual personna of the Cayman.
