do you guys get the stares

while driving you box?
i dont know if its the color of the car, the fact that its a porsche, or just peoples curiosity, but its constant stares at the car, trying to race me, people turning and still looking back at me/car, and other obvious things
today i spent like 3 hours claybaring, polishing, and waxing the car, and i had a couple take a picture of the car at the light.

does everyone lelse experience the same thing?

Yep, especially with the top down. It's because it's a Porsche. The look of a P-car is so distinguishable most people know what it is so they can't help but stare.

For you, it might be more color than any thing else. Its a very unique color. Never seen another Porsche with that color. Only KIAs .. no offense intended. I know I would slow down to get a good look.

Funny you should mention this. Yesterday I drove and caught a hot mom with her son crossing my path at an intersection. I saw mom's mouth (reading her lips) clearly say to her son "Look there's a Porsche." Son looks at me and googles.

Another cool scenario is waiting to turn left at a traffic light. YOu see a lot of stares then as well.

Kind of a cool feeling every now and then.

Dude, it has got nothing to do with the car. I'm just a good looking chap.
