Who needs good ad copy when you have a car that sells itself? I mean, who doesn't want to buy a 2003 porsche TUBOR from someone with the linguistic skills of a special needs preschooler?


It's TUBOR and everything!!!

I was able to decipher everything in the post with a bit of work except the last line. "What i can said now is my porsche waist better if u get one in dealer."

WHAT THE F*CK DOES THAT MEAN?!?!?!?!

There's something just... really... off about that car.

Can't put my finger on it. (Other than the body colored trim, obv.)

Joe, why do the first5 two ///M's you posted both have just embossed emblems on the steering wheel? I was of the understanding that all post '95s had the pretty ones.
