    "There is no substitute"....quote from where?

    It just dawned on me, that my old favourite teen chewinggum movie, "Risky Business" may have provided my favourite car brand their unofficial payoff..
    Is this really true?
    Is "Porsche- there is no substitute" the Tom Cruise quote, or did he merely quote the original Porsche slogan at the time?

    Heeeeeeeeeeere's Tommy!!!

    Enjoy!

    "Okay! ... Who's the U-boat commander?"

    Laughed my a$$ off for five minutes after hearing that line.

    Well, I liked the part where live fish jumped out of the front seat when the service mechanic opened the doors.

    I was watching this movie with my girlfriend about 3 weeks ago (first time seeing it) and she said...just wait to the dock scene. Man was i nervous! I love the Porsche poster in his room though. Anyone remember the 928 in Scarface?

    Did u ever see the movie, Mike?...or were you beyond the target audience back then?
    It's a classic, cheesy, platitudinal and all-round stereotypical teenage flick, but it also has its moments...and of course Tom Cruise.
    I remember it with great fondness...although back then Rebecca De Mornay switched on other buttons of mine than the "fondness" button
    Even Tom's awkward, adolescent voice made us all relate...aaah, those teen years. Pimples, pubic hair and Porsches. And of course the fourth, unmentionable "P"

    The "I'll borrow my dad's Porsche...and drive it into the lake" scenario was actually copied by a classmate of mine a couple of years later, when he "borrowed" his dad's brandnew Jag (and believe me, it was new), took a girl out for a romantic stroll in the forrest...forgot to pull the handbrake...and had to get a towtruck to pull it out of the local lake.
    Risky business, indeed

    SO WHERE IS THIS QUOTE FROM?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Re: "There is no substitute"....quote from where?

    The quote is from 1974 when it was used to introduce the newly restyled 911's.

    One of their marketing headlines from the eighties was "Kills Bugs Fast"

    Aha! Thx!
    "Kill bugs fast"...sounds like something out of "Men In Black"...
    Where can I find examples of those original ads and pay-offs from the seventies that you refer to?

    Re: "There is no substitute"....quote from where?

    I don't know where it is online, but I do have the original brochures and marketing materials in my files.

    Yes, ... I saw the movie. I think my wife and I rented it from Blockbuster when we had seen all the other recent releases of the time.

    I don't know if I was the target audience or not. But, I did watch it on my home system.

    Never realized that was said by Cruise, I thought the quote was made up by the ad agency.
