    OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    yesterday i went out to get the mail and mixed in with the usual drivvle was a "priority mail" communique from porsche along with christophorus...well i assumed it was a recall notice or something like that... nope it was a rather nice black piece on the gt2...offering to go to a porsche web site and enter a rt specific code # and receive in 7 to 10 business days a hard cover book on the gt2....which i naturally did sooner rather than later...did every turbo buyer get one, cause i have a launch car who knows

    whats with this on a car you apparently cant buy due to the limited production... i would ( mistakenly of course ) take this as an offer to go order one at my local friendlyish dealer....much as dodge did for initial buyers of the viper roadster when the coupe came out and was in short supply

    sorry the pic is fked up ill try again

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Yep, I got the same thing yesterday! I can't wait to see the book! I think that they're just trying to whet our appetite for the things that we can't get!

    What's with this Christophorus magazine? Other than a few pictures of Porsches it seems to be watch catalog. Does anyone actually pay money to subscribe to this?

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    the christophorus just shows up until your warranty runs out

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    I got one too, can't wait to check it out.:)

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    I recieved the book Wedesday. Each book is numbered. Mine is #54 of 2500. The book is composed of pictures of the GT2 in the round so to speak.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Ditto here.....Hlisk, how do you know what number you are?

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    I got one too, but I do have a GT2 on order.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Wonder are these US only? More than likely we Canadians got SHAFTED again.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    I got one too but tossed it...now I feel bad!

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Larry, of course you can look at mine. I'm sure yours is on its way too.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Each book is hand-numbered. The first page is black on each side. The next page is gray with "LIMITED EDITION" in the middle of the page with 54/2500 hand-numbered below it. My letter stated that my dealer had recognized me as a valued enthusiast with a passion for the type of performance only a Porsche can deliver. Of course I will be getting the only GT2 my dealer has coming for 2008.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Did'nt get a GT2 book but got a turbo book, brown hard cover with brown turbo cab inside,its not numbered though,,it came in a black fabric case.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    We got one too. Seems like a pretty nice book from the web special.

    Does anyone think it might have a dvd in there as well...maybe...?

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Just the book.

    You guys are talking about the book, right?

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Very funny, Chris.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Looks like Porsche didn't forget about us the Canadians, I got the notice over the weekend, only about 2 weeks AFTER the Americans

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Funny, I just called Porsche about this very same book. I still haven't gotten mine. The nice lady at PCNA told me that they're still waiting for their shipment of "360" books to arrive and will be sending those out soon. When I asked how it was determined who would receive this "offer" she explained that it's done completely at random based on whatever "online" information that was given to them. I guess that signing up for online notifications of Porsche news might have had made a difference. I should be getting mine within a week.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    I signed up with them and was emailed that I would be getting the actual book in 7-10 days.

    I think the offer was mailed to all current TT owners and those who responds gets a book.

    I think I am in trouble already, my son is ALL OVER the GT2 pic in the notice.........

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Why would you guess that? Larry didn't get one and a couple other TT owners I know also didn't get one. Like the lady at PCNA said, it was sent out at random.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    not everyone get a notice? hmm

    let's try again, early buyers get one?

    early buyer here, have not received anything

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    scratch that again.

    How about people born on odd number months then

    Maybe that lady was telling Jason he truth that people get selected randomly. But I doubt Porsche's marketing department do things randomly, it's so un-German.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Got the GT2 book in the mail today....very, very nice. #1153/2500.

    Wife says "I wonder how much of the $145K went to pay for that book"

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Maybe you'll believe me Nick when I say something from now on. Straight from the horse's mouth dude...we're randomly chosen good folks.

    Good one, Mr. FSU-997TT.

    Re: OH MY GOD ! - got a porsche freebie

    Jason still waiting for mine? Got my Certificate of Authenticity though, only problem is they left out 12 options! I talked to the nice lady today and she will fix it.
