What's Wrong With This Picture: What Porsche's Been Smoking Edition

As the Porsche brand has expanded in recent years to include sedans and SUVs, and as overpriced special editions and cynically neutered products propped up an increasingly bloated pricing structure, Porsche fans have had plenty of opportunities to wonder “what are those guys smoking?” And now, thanks to Autoblog, we have part of the answer: we may not know exactly what Porsche is smoking, but we know what they’re smoking it out of. According to Porsche Design’s presser

The extraordinary Porsche Design Shisha combines high-quality materials such as aluminium, stainless steel and glass with the timeless and unique design approach of the luxury brand. Puristic and stylish at the same time. The Porsche Design Shisha is made in Germany and stands at a height of 55 centimetres. It only shows a discreet branding on the aluminium top of the Shisha and comes with a long flexible tube made out of TecFlex material, which is also used for the classic Porsche Design TecFlex writing tools.

So… when is Chrysler going to get in on this cross-branding opportunity?

    Dave's not here. He's gone to the Porsche dealer to buy a new bong.

    If they break, how many dead hookahs can you fit in the trunk of a 911?

    Chris Bangle and the BMW board that signed off his designs must have had some of that too. It was clearly good stuff, but far too strong for them. The 1-series is the proof of that. Especially in five door hatch form. Some other BMW employees has been at it for years. Yes, engineers that designed the cooling system for the inline sixes, it's you that I'm talking about. Plastic is not nearly as heat-resistant as metal. So why do you use everywhere? Didn't you learn about that in college? EDIT - as you can see I'm working hard on my love-hate relationship with a certain German marque. If you will excuse me, there's a bunch of guys in white coats at my front door. I wonder what they want with me. Is that what a strait jacket looks like?
