I've seen all those videos, and I can't tell you how.

You know what's more interesting.

I live in a small town, about 40K people. My boss just got one and he has only had 3 Porsche vehicles, so I'm not so sure those videos tell the whole story.

I'll be driving/photographing it soon .

The internet is really good at exaggerating two things: how much people like wagons, and how hard it is to buy desirable Porsches.

he's the carwow guy. from what i understand he doesn't own carwow but works for them in advertising.

he probably gets paid good money. and since the car is technically part of his work/business he can use the tax laws to his advantage.

plus, porsche is getting advertising out him. he's putting out videos watched by millions. its more advantageous for companies to give a halo car to someone who like that over a guy who will just tuck it away and not create content.

He has been flogging Porsche in his videos for ages. Not surprised he moved to the front of the cue.

Mat.

I just watched his video on the GTS Heritage Edition today and he teases that he might cancel his GT3 order. Anyone know if he’s actually taken delivery of the GT3?

It’s a long video and it will leave you wanting one!! Tons of detailed information about the car!

Why would you want this bumpy teeth knocker and nerve strainer that you probably can't get anyway LOL, latest 911 turbo does it all and you arrive in comfort and refreshed.

Yes. He has multiple millions of followers, predominantly in the UK. His videos get millions of views. Manufacturers lend him cars, and in return get free advertising to a car enthusiastic bunch of followers. He also runs an Audi RS6. Again, same MO.

Not reading all of this. Was the deep mystery of why someone who is well connected in the auto industry who was able to get a high demand Porsche solved? Hard to believe.
