A new TTAC podcast feature is born: a conversation with a car salesman about what's going down on the front line. We begin with my go-to Porsche guy, Kirk Stingle. Kirk's been selling Porkers for 10 years, establishing a large fan base of devoted buyers down in Southern New England. When the Cayman S first arrived at the permanent construction site known as Inskip Porsche, Kirk told us that the mid-engined tin top confused a lot of Boxster and 911 buyers. According to the man with the million dollar smile, there's still a bit of a bun fight amongst the models. And it's getting worse, what with a smaller-engined Cayman and bigger engined Boxster due soon. But who cares? Sales are up across the board. You pays your money, you gets your Porsche.

    what do you people do for a living that you can afford to buy porsche, and rebuy them when you want a new one? Can't be all just lawyers and doctors out there. Any Gun runners? Maybe some lobbyists?

    I worked at Inskip as the Internet Manager for 2 1/2 years. You won't find a better guy than Kirk. I've got lots of respect for him.

    Really enjoyed the interview (and having worked with folks in RI as a lobbyist, I loved hearing the "draw-mur" of the dialect). I liked the way Robert asked about 911 owners buying "down" to the Cayman and how Kirk responded (essentially saying that the Cayman is a great car in its own right). I've never been a Porsche guy, but Kirk and the Cayman S are changing my mind. Thanks!

    Haha, My god, it really is a permanent construction site. And now they're expanding all up and down the road! They're bringing their gospel of neverending chaos to the whole town. Yes!
