Owner stories

Not all cars are created equal and not all owners feel the same way about their cars. Porsche owners are a bit of a “crazy” bunch, especially the die hard fanatics. And in most cases they feel very strongly about their prized possessions.

If you have an interesting true story about your Porsche and would like to share it with the world, write it down and send it to story@stuttcars.com. If we like it, we will publish it here. As a little thanks from us, the published writer will receive a 12 months subscription to Stuttcars' paid content or an extension to the current membership.
