#706 Fascination Porsche – S1 E9 – A burning desire

If you don’t get it, you don’t get. The end of the story.

A Porsche is just that, a car. Something you can drive from point A to point B. But that’s not why we all want a Porsche, right? The thing about a Porsche is this, it brings us from point A in life to point B. It follows us wherever we go, whatever we do. 10 years ago I have started to to develop this desire. But it’s not just the car, it is way more than that.

Owning a Porsche, driving a Porsche, talking about Porsches, it’s the whole package that makes it so special. With a heritage in motorsport, Porsche tries to keep up with this ever changing environment we are all living in. The company wants to implement a brand, a lifestyle, something we all are looking for. We see successful and good looking people wearing expensive watches and living the dream. But for me, this has little to do with the world I am living in. I am not one of them. I do not want to be one of them. I just want to drive, to look, to share the passion for cars and driving.

As I get older day by day, my Porsche comes closer, day by day.

But with that being an unavoidable fact, there comes also something else. Fear. Is this all just an illusion by itself. Will nothing change once I own the car? I have those images in my head. I have these dreams. But will I enjoy it as much as I think? Will it really be as awesome as expected? Or is this all just an ignorant dream?

I have overdone it to such an extent, that I do not just live the idea, no, I am the idea. Owning a Porsche is no longer just a question of money, but instead a question of time. But do I fit into the profile? Will I be a good Porsche driver? Will I loose the connection to the ground? Am I focusing too much on this goal?

I guess, I am just different. I haven’t learned the lessons in life that I should have learned. My life is a struggle, a fight, an ongoing battle. I haven’t learned to take a break. To enjoy. To stop setting “unrealistic” goals. Am I a dreamer or a realist? Can I actually achieve all my goals? Can I live the dream?

At the end of the day, it is all just up to us. What do we want? What do we need? What do we want to achieve?

I will buy a Porsche, because I want to buy a Porsche. I want to experience the thrill. I want to be a part of the community. I want to give myself something back after all those years of sacrifices.

See you next time!
