This is day one of the Wolfsburg tour, where your BS returns to the scene of his former crimes. I came in on a 12 hours JAL flight from Tokyo. I was picked at Hannover Airport by an Iranian driver with a black Multivan. Imagine, this is the place where I was running through the parking garage in the olden days, looking for a Phaeton with the keys hidden in the exhaust pipe.

Johnny Lieberman of Motor Trend however …

… shows up in a 911, which he drove up all the way from Stuttgart … in a little less than my 12 hours. Well, the car had kind of a shitty color. But the license plate was apropos.

    I dunno, I kinda like the bronze Porsche. Sort of an old-school color.

    The Germans have a word, “Schokoladenfreude” that roughly translates to “Vaguely-expressed joy towards another person’s car, insecurely manifested through making fun of its color”

    Is MT so relevant that they get a Porsche to drive?

      MT are arguably the most successful adopters of new media of any US print magazine, so they are as relevant as any outlet. See their (very popular) Youtube channel; Johnny Lieberman has done a great job with this.

        ^^ This. As much as I love to hate on MT from an out-of-touch print rag perspective, they’ve done a great job of using new media as a means to stay relevant. I personally think that Lieberman does a great job with his video segments. Of course, I was also very happy to learn that there is someone more OCD about car interior details than I am (ref. chrome climate control vents in Volvo S60 Polestar vs. Audi S4 comparo on YouTube here: http://youtu.be/0ou34WouliA?t=11m19s )

    So the object lesson is that VAG treats sychophants in the generally accepted manner. why waste money on a sweet ride for someone who’s gonna lick the VW corporate boot when they show up, anyway? save some cash and send a cab.

    Go Johnny go. It is great to see one of TTAC’s early writers having fun, making money and making BS jealous. Perfect.

    I hope VW put you up in a corner suite or a balcony suite at the Ritz! I miss owning a VW dealership.

    The Porsche looks like it has Hot Wheels color changing paint and is in a transitional phase. On a hot day, it would be pink. On a cold day, purple.
