Surely Griot's could afford a REAL Porsche in that ad...... Their stuff is expensive enough. Good, but expensive.
Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints.....

Well, at least they made it clear it was a replica. One of the funniest things I've ever seen was a classic car insurance company (Not Hagerty) advertise their coverage in Panorama with a replica Speedster. Too funny.

There’s a mechanic that advertises his services in the magazine, for ages his ad had a replica speedster. I emailed him suggesting (somewhat politely) that a real one would be better. He gave me a very short reply and changed the picture.
