In Which Your Author Is Set Straight By The Porsche Club Of America
Earlier today, I published an article regarding the newest Porsche Club of America auction. Shortly after it went up, I received an email from Vu Nguyen, PCA’s Executive Director. In this email, Mr. Nguyen managed to refrain from calling me an idiot or implying that I could not read contest rules. But this is what he did say:
Just wanted to clarify (and hopefully make your prize decision easier) that the winner of the Grand Prize uses the vehicle spec listed as a starting point. Winner’s [sic] can change, within factory available options, the spec of their car. Unlike most raffles, PCA specs a fairly loaded vehicle so that the winner doesn’t get stuck with a base model. If you choose to spec a lesser cost car, then PCA actually gives you the difference. If you spec a more expensive car, you just pay for the difference in cost.
He then went on to say that PCA would be happy to provide me with the white manual Cayman S described in my article. But wait a minute. If I can run this cash register all the way to $99,000…
Visit my dream Cayman S on the Porsche website. Featuring:
- Paint to sample 1973 Lime Green, as with my old Audi S5
- Natural leather interior in Espresso, with full Carbon Fiber trim
- Premium Package Plus, LED headlights, 18-way seats
- High-gloss aluminum exterior trim for that vintage look
- Sport Suspension and Torque Vectoring
- Fire extinguisher
- Burmester sound
Now that is a frog I could live with. I’d just have to also live with not being able to keep up with Mrs. Baruth on a racetrack… but you’d be surprised what a low-power mid-engined car on Hoosiers can do. So what if it sounds like a WRX, right?

I'm with those who say skip the stupid 4 cylinder and buy that ace of base 911 with a proper engine for the same price.
