Porsche Promotes the Practical Side of Its Sportscars

When you think of Porsches, the mind naturally wonders off to either sportscars with engines in the wrong place or the Cayenne. Let’s forget about the SUV and even the Panamera saloon for a second and focus on the performance side of things.

The German company has recently released a new commercial on its Youtube channel that has distinctive American touch to it. Called “Porsche. Engineered for Magic. Every day.”, it tries to show the practical side of a sportscar.

“Porsche. A car designed with a singular purpose, yet somehow it manages to be so much more. Porsche. Engineered for Magic. Every day. Visit to see videos and stories from owners making the mundane magical in their Porsche. While there upload your own story,” the video description read.

The 30-second ad is made up of four different video fragments. In the first one, a red 911 Carrera 4S is used as a ‘Snowmobile’ that doesn’t let the bad whether get the best of it. The second one is the funniest in our opinion -a Cayman two-seater becomes a ‘Pickup Truck’ as a man loads large bags of construction material into the front trunk of the car. This reminded us of the famous attempts of some 911 owners to make their cars safer by putting bags of cement in the front in an effort to balance the car.

The third fragment of the video shows a 911 Carrera GTS being used as a ‘Getaway Car’, while the last one shows the 911 Turbo used a a yellow ‘School Bus’. We don’t know about you but all of us would have loved to be taken home from school in a turbocharged flat-six powered supercar.

There’s a fifth segment as well, that didn’t make the cut for this video and is featured separately. It features a Boxster that is being used as a ‘Pet Carrier’ for a huge dog.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
