It’s not a secret that I am very interested into cars, especially Porsches. And what I see out there is a lot of people pretending to have a clue about cars without actually having a clue. Some cars get sold way too cheaply while others get bought way too high. Of course not everyone can be an expert, but that is not the point. The point is that we all do the same mistakes. Mistakes that are avoidable.
One of my hobbies are Porsches. It’s fair to say that I know quite a lot about them. That knowledge is worse something? Not to everyone of course. But definitely to someone who already owns or wants to own a Porsche. But how do I get in contact with those people? How can I do the first steps? Without owning a Porsche myself this seems to be an impossible task. Why should anyone listen to this little kid? True, I have a masters degree in engineering, that’s at least something, but it takes more to get a good reputation. What I need is to get in contact with likeminded people. What I need to do is to get into the “scene”, club, or however you want to call it. I need to help someone who tells others about me and so on. Can’t be that difficult, can it?
Well, where should I find those people? The Porsche community is a different breed. Nobody likes to talk openly about money, especially if the possibility is high that they did something wrong in the past. You don’t want to get reminded of your past mistakes. You do not want someone to tell you what you did wrong. Therefore you shut your mouth and trust the Porsche dealership guy. A tricky environment to get going in. Agreed! But not impossible.
My homework is clear. I have to learn even more about those cars. I have to get my own Porsche. I have to get into the Porsche community talking with people as much as possible.
See you next time!
