A New Porsche Dealership Just Opened!

Now don’t get too excited because it’s not in the

Dallas Fort Worth area, it’s in Hamburg, Germany.

During the summer, Erika and I were in Germany

for a month visiting her relatives. On August 6 her

cousin Soeren told us that a new Porsche dealership

was opening that day. Knowing how much I am into

Porsches, he asked if I would like to go to the opening.

That day we went to the Elbe, the new performing

arts center in Hamburg. It is a huge building that has a

walkway (about 15 stories high, accessed by the longest

escalator I have ever seen) around the outside of the

building which offers a great view of the city. Then we

took the train to the dealership.

The dealership had around 80 new cars inside. There was

every model that Porsche makes. They had all sorts of food

and drink. I went up to one of the salesmen and said that I

had come all the way from Dallas just for their opening. The

salesman did not even smile and returned to his computer

screen with no acknowledgment. I tried another salesman

with the same result. I asked someone if they had any

Porsche shirts with the dealership name and city on it and

was told no, but they had the standard Porsche shirts that

every other dealership has. They had a huge video display

showing Dr. Porsche with one of his cars.

We looked around and noted that a new GT3 was

only 117,000 euros and a standard 991 was 127,000

euros. For some reason Erika would not let me purchase

the GT3. We spent about an hour looking at the cars and

finally it was

time to leave. I

had never seen

so many

Porsches in a

show room. It

was great to see

so many great

Porsches! I left

drooling . .
