Creepy or Clever marketing? Porsche dealer puts your house in direct marketing material
Pfaff Auto in Toronto has taken credit for creating the world's first piece of instant direct mail - a variation on the regular direct mail that goes from the doorstep straight to the waste basket. The dealership took a white Porsche 911 Carrera S to well-monied Toronto neighborhoods and photographed it in front of various homes. A print production crew in a cargo van nearby then took those photos and, right on the spot, created individual postcards using each photo that invited homeowners to a test drive.

PCA Photo of the Week
This is a picture of my two Porsches, both are 2006s and both are "S." I ordered the Boxster S in March 2005 and took delivery in August 2005. It was built on my birthday! The Cayman S was bought used from a dealer in Denver. I did the deal over the internet and phone, then flew out and drove it home in April 2007. The Boxster is my summer car and gets stored over the winter. My Cayman is my track car, cold weather summer and winter car.
