For many people fast cars and the lifestyle that they present is a dream goal. Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin are the things of films, auto shows and magazines that offer luxury cars. Yet there are a few people that consider these sports cars an extension of themselves or a reflection of their personality encapsulated in a car.
Porsche is one such brand that leaves some people feeling just like that. A well produced film that follows the desire and love for the Porsche name is ‘100 Porsches and Me’.
