Krautrock Meets Porsche - A pairing of German cultural touchstones

Krautrock Meets Porsche: A pairing of German cultural touchstones

Prestige Imports and Oktoberfest: An Annual Tradition On 08 October 2016, Prestige Imports held its annual Oktoberfest celebration. The dealership’s twenty-sixth iteration of the event highlights the German heritage of both the Porsche and Audi brands through traditional song, dance, food, and drink. In honor of Prestige Imports’ successful, 2016 Oktoberfest, I thought it would…

Audi and Airbnb at the Emmy’s A few weeks ago, Audi was the official automotive sponsor of the 68th Emmy Awards for its sixth consecutive year. In a press release leading up to the event, the German automaker announced a business collaboration with Airbnb in which the companies would offer an exclusive “travel and driving…

Porsche Crest, Audi Rings, and Prestige Imports Badge - A Rich History

Porsche Crest, Audi Rings, and Prestige Imports Badge: A Rich History

What’s in a Badge? Badge. Crest. Logo. While the emblems on the hood, rear, or steering wheel of a vehicle may be spatially small, they symbolize something much larger: international, automotive corporations and the traditions upon which business magnates founded them. If you’re reading this article, then you’re most certainly aware of the Porsche and…

Porsche 912 - Of the Self and the Universe

Porsche 912: Of the Self and the Universe

Petrolicious Won’t Stop Making Amazing Porsche Videos I’ve written about my love for the videos created and hosted by Petrolicious in a previous post. In that article, I mentioned that what I found “most compelling” in these features were the “personal stories of the owners” and, likewise, how the vehicles “function as emblems for individual…

Scenic Colorado Detours for Porsche and Audi Drivers

Eat a Palisade Peach Earlier this week, I went to King Soopers in Capitol Hill and purchased a couple of pounds of Palisade Peaches. We’re nearing that time of year in which these delicious fruits from the Western Slope achieve peak ripeness (From what I’ve gathered from personal experience, the last two weeks of August…

Porsche Stuff on the Internet

Porsche Stuff on the Internet: A Video Round-Up

The Internet is Filled with Stuff Every week, content-producers pump out article after article, meme after meme, and video after video in endless succession. The perpetual landslide of content competes for that fraction of a second from an audience in hope of sending their content viral so as to achieve fame, notoriety, acclaim, money, or…

Porsche and Art: “It must be unique; yet universal”

Porsche and Art: “It must be unique; yet universal”

Porsche and Art: The Marketing of a Masterpiece Art. It is both an act(ion) and an end-product. It is a tangible, aesthetic engagement and an ineffable, abstract concept. These multifarious and oftentimes contradictory descriptions of art are exactly what makes it so compelling: the lack of a singular definition or rigid parameters force us to…

Porsche Pairings - A Cocktail for Every Car

Porsche Pairings: A Cocktail for Every Car

An Evening at Bar Fausto in Denver’s Rino Art District A few nights ago, I walked from my downtown apartment to Bar Fausto in Denver’s RiNo Art District. Bar Fausto is a proper cocktail club, serving both classic offerings and improvisational concoctions by the folks tending bar. When I was there, I ordered house drink…

1993 Porsche 911 Turbo (930)

It’s Great that the 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo is Still Alive!

It’s Great that Jerry Seinfeld is Still Alive For many people, Jerry Seinfeld initiated his slow slide into obscurity the moment his eponymous, situational comedy program signed-off the National Broadcasting Company on 14 May 1998. Of course, for those of you who enjoy vintage cars and vintage comedians, you’re well aware that he’s kept himself…

Petrolicious, the Porsche 356, and Personal Narratives

Petrolicious: A Cornucopia of Classic Car Videos Even a cursory search through the annals of YouTube will reveal a treasure trove (or, for the more pessimistically-minded metaphor lovers, a cesspool) of car videos. One of my favorite channels in this vast storehouse of vehicle streams, though, is Pertrolicious. At their official website, the Pertrolicious team…

The Audi A8, Transporter 3, and Some Super Rad Stunts

The Audi A8, Transporter 3, and The Old “Clearing The Gap Between Two Train Cars With Your Audi” Trick Recently, I walked down to Rock Bottom Brewery on the 16th Street Mall to watch Game 1 of the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Atlanta Hawks series in Round 2 of the NBA playoffs. After a brief scare…

Audi Advertising: A Then And Now Comparison

Vintage Magazines: Advertisement Museum, Collage Treasure Trove When I’m not churning out content at my computer in Prestige Imports’ Marketing office, I spend a great deal of time paging through old magazines in service of my collage practice. My favorite source for raw materials (and, without fail, laughs) tends to be the advertisements. Specifically, I…

Search and Destroy: Iggy Pop and the 2017 Audi A4

Iggy Pop and the 2017 Audi A4 – “Look out honey, ’cause I’m using technology!” After David Bowie’s passing a few months ago, I posted an article about Audi’s use of Bowie tunes in their television commercials. Shortly thereafter, the German automaker released a Super Bowl spot, titled “Commander,” which featured The Thin White Duke’s…

Porsche Panamera

Porsche Panamera: Luxurious Darling of Pop Culture

Porsche Panamera: Darling of Pop Culture The Porsche brand has long been glorified in pop culture, particularly within the hip-hop world. With last week’s release of Future’s new mix-tape Purple Reign, that trend appears to be alive and well. At the 1:38 mark in the title track, he sings: “I bought a couple coupes, I…

Keanu and Porsche

Keanu Reeves and Porsche: A Prestige Profile

Keanu Reeves and Porsche: A Prestige Profile I have a shameful confession to make: on Monday night, I stayed up super-late to watch Constantine on Netflix. In bed. On an iPhone. And when I say Constantine, yes, I mean Keanu Reeves’ 2005 box-office dud that, subsequently, received a 46% on the Rotten Tomatoes‘ TomatoMeter. Here’s…

David Bowie and Audi: "Progressions"

Flashback: The David Bowie Audi commercial “Progressions”

David Bowie, surprising and delighting his fans right up to the end Last week, rock n’ roll legend David Bowie passed away after an eighteen month battle with cancer and two days after his 69th birthday. In what turned out to be his swan song, Bowie released the wonderfully experimental but totally listenable album Blackstar.…

Porsche 918 Spyder: Monday’s Prestigious Sounds

Porsche 918 Spyder: Monday’s Prestigious Sounds The past few Mondays, I’ve focused on the exhaust sound of the Audi R8 V10 Plus. The naturally-aspirated engine possesses a formidable and distinctive growl that has been worthy of consecutive week features. This week, though, Monday’s Prestigious Sounds features the Porsche 918 Spyder. This supercar runs on a…

2014 Audi R8 V10 S-Tronic: Monday’s Prestigious Sounds

2014 Audi R8 V10 S-Tronic Another week, another Monday morning. It never stops, does it? Of course, that also means another chance to start your week by popping in your headphones and losing yourself in the exhaust sound of a gorgeous supercar. Last Monday, I shared a commercial by Audi that featured the 2014 Audi…

Porsche on XCar: An Historical Perspective

Porsche on XCar: An Historical Perspective A plethora of car review videos exist within the ether of the Internet. Some may even go so far as to say that a veritable cornucopia of videos overfloweth upon the World Wild Web. Indeed, for every make, model, and year of vehicle, there are, no doubt, at least…

Porsche Television Commerials: “For Something To Endure”

“For Something To Endure”: A Porsche Television Commerial The new year, typically, encourages us to reflect back on the recent past, while, concomitantly, attuning ourselves more closely to the immediate future. In other words, it provides us with the perfect opportunity to meditate upon the passage of time. And so, I am reminded of an…

2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus: Monday’s Prestigious Sounds

2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus: Monday’s Prestigious Sounds A couple of weeks ago, I posted an article about the Audi R8 V10 Plus. It looks to be a rather amazing update to the Audi fleet and, frankly, one helluva supercar. This morning, which, I assume, is your first work day of the new calendar year,…

Transitions: Audi, Somerville, Myles, and Technology

Transitions: Audi, Somerville, Myles, and Technology During the summer of 2013, I spent a few months “between places.” Luckily for me, I have a friend who, at the time, lived in Somerville, MA. Whether out of kindness or pity, she let me stay at her place for a couple weeks. I recall very little about…

Porsche 911: Monday’s Prestigious Sounds

Porsche 911: Monday’s Prestigious Sounds I’ve extolled the sheer, acoustic brilliance of the naturally-aspirated Porsche 911 exhaust sound in previous posts. So what better way to inaugurate another work week than to immerse yourself the classic rumble of the Porsche’s flat-6. I suggest plugging in some headphones and let the sonic brilliance of the below…

Porsche Lyrics in Hip-Hop Songs: A Prestige Primer

Porsche Lyrics in Hip-Hop Songs: A Prestige Primer Lil Wayne dropped another mix-tape on Thanksgiving evening, no doubt an attempt to tide over his fans while they wait in (what seems to be) perpetuity for Tha Carter V. While some critics lauded the collection, titled No Ceilings 2, others panned it. Regardless of what you think of…

Audi, Porsche, and John Hughes: Three Movies

Audi, Porsche, and John Hughes Recently, I posted an article about films in which Porsche vehicles appeared and played a prominent role in the narrative. Specially, I referenced Risky Business, Sixteen Candles, and Bad Boys as prime examples of such movies Over the course of the past several weeks, though, I’ve been knee-deep in 1980s-era…

Audi and 3D-Printing

Audi and 3D-Printing

Auto Union, the predecessor to modern day Audi, manufactured a series of grand prix race cars during the 1930s, endearingly called Silver Arrows. These long, tubular vehicles leveraged their superior technology into twenty-five victories between 1935 and 1937, dominating the racing scene. The design legacy of the Silver Arrow serves as an emblem to the…

Porsche in the Movies – Performance cars on the big screen

Porsche in the Movies The other day, I posted a tribute to Patrick Dempsey and his first racing victory with Team Porsche. I concluded the article with a brief list of my favorite Dempsey films.

The more things change - Still frame from famous Audi Ski Jump Commercial

The More Things Change – a look back at two classic Audi television commercials

Prestige Imports’ print ad in this month’s 5280 highlights our thirty-one years of community involvement. To accomplish this, we took a digital photograph of the dealership’s facade, foregrounded by a photograph shot from the same location in 1984. The ability to view these two photos at the same time magnifies the passage of time since…

Today is is 21 October 2015: the date made famous by the now-classic film Back To The Future: Part II. In the movie, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) travels from 1985 to 2105 in order to save his children from the devious schemes of archrival Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson). With the help of Doc…
