Porsche of the Week

      This Porsche of the week is a 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster in white. The white is pretty cool and the car sort of feels 80s, at least to me. The black trim is a great classic accent and with the top down this thing is looking pretty fly. The curves in the wheels accents the rear curve, and the round headlights are always a favorite. From the rear the car looks even better, in my opinion, with the black grate and bumper accents. The bar lights in the rear add a new element to the car that is missing in the front.

Inside a Cubicle at Porsche HQ

      I've never been inside Porsche Cars North America, but given the photo above it must be a trip. I mean look at the chair mat, it's a chair mat! And it's got a great Porsche scene on it. If they're spending that kind of money on simple mats, I can't wait to see the walls, desks, and buildings and how they scream Porsche while being classy. Maybe she purchased this one herself, but I'm leaning towards the company providing things like this. It's just a quick snapshot but it's definitely a great window into the company.

Porsche Pencil Drawing

      Porsches are fun to doodle, if you can draw. This Porsche 911 is a little accentuated but overall is a pretty cool piece. It's done in pencil with great shading and color despite it being black and white. The car seems to bend a little which is an interesting feature, and the rear seems more rounded than an actual car, but overall it's a fun piece to share and definitely a cool find.

The Classic Porsche Accessory: The Coffee Mug

      Ah the coffee mug. Every house isn't a home without at least one, and most probably have five to eight in the cupboard. This Porsche mug exhibits the brand very well. It's simple, elegant, classy, and gets to the point. A coffee mug is a great way to support a cause or brand in the office as well as at home without having to pay for the whole car. I know this isn't most Pfanatics favorite Porsche piece, but it's helpful and can be a great start to your Porsche collection and style.

Race Ready Porsche?

       This is a Porsche, at least I think it is. The caption said so, so I'm going with that. The caption reads: "Drilled for weight reduction and banged up to race. #porsche #550 (at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca)". It's unclear if this Porsche is currently race ready but I'm assuming it is. It's not the prettiest but will work, and it still looks cool. I'm a fan of the duct tape headlights myself. Very cool that they shared the vehicle and explained what they did to it.

Porsche with Leather Strap Feature

      This Porsche is awesome. It's got shine for miles and class for years. The silver pops like no other, the crest is looking sweet on that accent, and the cage around the headlight is icing on the cake. But that leather strap, that's where it's at. It's a great feature and a nod to the old school feel this car is screaming. The leather strap or belt is holding the hood down. Obviously there's a reason hoods are held this way anymore, but it's a great addition to the car and really completes the look and feel of what I'm guessing is a restoration. Great job.

Porsche Design Glasses

      The Porsche Design collection has been around for a few years at least, and this is the first time an item has been out of the box. The Porsche Design glasses are simple, elegant, and carry the Porsche flair. Here the label is being shown but we can see most of the pair. The arms look black with either silver or black framing, and there's a pop or red all too similar to the brakes in many Porsche wheels. Very classy and a great way to support the brand without wearing a logo.
