Is Porsche Spelled S-T-U-P-I-D?

March 25, 2008

Although this isn’t technically about sports, since my musings started in the Wachovia Center parking lot on the way out of a game, I’m going to slide it in.

So I’m walking to the subway after the Flyers victory Sunday night and pass in front of a guy driving out in his Porsche SUV. HUH? What in the world does Porsche–fast, performance, sexy Porsche–have to do with SUVs?

Then this morning I get out of a cab in front of my office and pass a Porsche station wagon. A really ugly grey monstrosity of a Porsche station wagon.

Honestly, if you have the money to buy a Porsche, why aren’t you in a little red two-door convertible coupe? Because these big dumpy Porsches aren’t giving you the bang for your buck. You’re junk does NOT look bigger in the Porsche SUV or station wagon. You don’t look sexy, or cool, or even rich. You just look stupid.
