Looking for Porsche posters for my garage

I have been searching the web but can't seem to find a good resource for Porsche posters. Does anyone know of a good place? Looking for promotional posters of the Boxster S or 911 that I can use to decorate the garage walls. TIA

See if your dealership will give you some.

I always see a lot on e-Bay too.

Oh brother, have I got the solution for you!

You want a cool Porsche poster? How about one of your own Porsche?

This is one of the coolest things I've seen on the net. Forgive the weird name, but it's called "The Rasterbator."

It creates a rasterized image of your photos. Essentially, what you do is upload a photo and it spits back a .pdf file that you print out. The pages all line up to form one large image. It looks cool visually because each print out is nothing but large dots (relative to pixels anyway). From close it's hard to make out what it is, but step back and you see the image.

It's free.

Here's the link:

Play with it for a while and mess with the settings.

Here's my example:
I took it a step further and put each printed out sheet in a cheap Wal Mart frame to class it up a bit. (A tip: if you're gonna get frames, don't make the image print on more than 15 sheets of paper, it can get large [and expensive])

Thanks bmussatti.

Here's more cool mounting ideas:









Check out the Rasterbator Gallery for more ideas...

Those frames that you put letters or normal paper-sized certificates in would look good too... the ones with no borders.
