New Porsche Billboard Spots You Driving and Posts Ego-Stroking Messages

Yes, there is now an interactive billboard that will detect Porsche's driving by and then post an ego-stroking message.

And yes, I have lost some weight recently, thank you.

"Boxster? Couldn't afford the 911?"

"You paid what for that Cayanne and could have bought a Touareg for how much less??"

That's Melbourne airport in Australia - at current pricing, you are looking at probably at three quarters of a million dollars ($750,000) worth of Porsches in that first picture....
Believe me, the billboard won't be recognising many Porsches driving by.
I don't know what its stroking, but its not only ego's.....

Would think that billboard would be great in LA. But do Angelinos need their ego stroked any higher than it already is?

At least Porsches are recognizable. Can you imagine the confusion of the system trying to tell the difference between most of the cars on the road?

I want to test this. Someone needs to go run a 924 under it. How about a 914? What if the boxster is deambered!

What if a beetle goes by.......

If the beetle had a male driver it would certainly ask about gayness and the whole little flower holder thing......

"944? We do not recognize those any longer. We made a terrible mistake. Please accept our sincere apologies.."

Let me get this right: it's not ok to text while driving (rightly so) but it is ok to have flashing electronic billboards over and beside the roadway?

We almost mistook your Audi for a Porsche.

Yes, people here multi-task all the time and get very bored driving. I hear the X Games are going to have a new event called Competitive Driving While Talking On A Cell Phone.

I give it about a month before hackers have a field day with this...


"everyone knows you have a small penis".

"what's the difference between a porcupine and a Porsche?".

"you know she only wants your money geezer".
