Ami James and Porsche Tattoos

Last week on NY Ink Ami James went back to his old stomping ground, Miami, and was seen in a Porsche Panamera (thanks Ray). I didn’t catch the episode but I will keep an eye out for it on TLC. I haven’t seen a clip or a picture of Ami in this Porsche, but this sighting led me to the idea of Porsche tattoos [along with Ray asking about it]. So I did a Google image search and here are some tats that popped up.

This is one cool dude.

Hank Moody and his Porsche 911 Carrera

Hank Moody (David Duchovny) is the main character in Showtime’s Californication. He’s a writer, a bad ass, and a father struggling to keep his life together; all in one thirty minute episode. Hank doesn’t spend a lot of time on material things, he is much more into drinking, smoking, and having sex. But there are a few pieces he keeps close, such as his typewriter and his Porsche.

Hank’s Porsche parked on the curb gives a great front view.

Celebs Get to Have All the Fun

Now I’m a newb when it comes to Porsche, or even cars for that matter. When I hear Porsche, the first things that pop into my head are: car, fast car, boys, hot boys, and Patrick Dempsey. I’ve hear lots about boys and their fast sports cars, but I think there’s something else to be said about how girls pair hot boys and hot sports cars. The first things I Googled after thinking of my father’s Porsche preferences were two celebrities and their Porsche sightings in films. Examples include Matthew McConaughey in Failure to Launch and David Duchovny inCalifornication.

Alec Baldwin, Capital One, 356A Speedster?

So there I am, channel surfing and what do I behold?

Why it looks like it might be a Porsche on primetime. Thank goodness for modern technology. For a very brief moment, that I had to rewind and pause to actually confirm, Alec Baldwin, in an almost gymnastic move (his body was nearly horizontal), jumps from what I believe is a 356A Speedster.

Off to the cloud I run to see if someone has already identified the model and year. I quickly find the Capital One commercial on You Tube , where I’m able to pause it in HD to properly analyze the situation.

I’m not fluent in 356, but with help from the 356 Registry Spotter’s Guide, I begin some analysis.Continue Reading

2011 Dallas Auto Show

I was back in Dallas last week in time to catch the end of the 2011 Dallas Auto Show.  All in all it was a fair size show, with the American and Japanese manufacturers providing the larger presentations.  Park Place put together a modest display of seven 2011 Porsche models in their overall luxury display which include the big hitters like Rolls Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, etc.

A Meteor Grey Metallic 2011 Porsche Carrera GTS Cabriolet was the main attraction sitting atop a rotating display.  However I think the Panamera and Cayman were getting more attention.
