GO GET YOUR OWN PORSCHE

October 18, 1959

"As long as you can get into a Porsche and out of it you are still young," Stuttgart's lord mayor told 165 traveling Americans on the lawn of Württemberg's Schloss Solitude (above). Most of his listeners were Porsche fans already, and they had crossed the seas for two good reasons: 1) to junket with fellow members of the Porsche Club of America and 2) to bring home a new car at a bargain rate. Their presence was also a tribute to West German enterprise in the briskly competitive fields of sports cars and foreign travel.

By ordering new cars in the U.S., taking delivery in Germany and driving them around a bit, Porsche pointed out, owners could have cars delivered home as "used," with a saving in import duties. What Porsche did not stress was that junketing through the Rhineland would wipe out the saving, but nobody seemed to mind a bit.
