Beverly Hills Porsche hosted a Hollywood premier-style launch of the all new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera.
From the moment guests arrived and strolled down the red carpet it was clear this was no ordinary new car debut.
The story of the iconic sports car’s evolution was told through a display of immaculately restored 911s starting with the very first production 911, Jerry Seinfeld’s 1964 "Number One". David Buhain’s 1973 right-hand drive RS was next in the line up followed by the Porsche Parade winning "Grey Ghost", a flawless 1986 930 Turbo owned by Joseph DeMeo. Mark Lever’s rare UN-optioned 1993 911 RS America and Ed O’Neill’s 1997 993 Turbo rounded out the air-cooled era display. Fine examples of the water-cooled 996 and 997 body types were displayed from the Beverly Hills Porsche inventory.
Many thanks goes to the owners of these fine cars for sharing them with us.
The star of the show was of course the 7th generation of the 911, type 991, the all new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe.
The all new Porsche 911 Carrera is now available at Beverly Hills Porsche! Visit us today at 8425 Wilshire Blvd. We are centrally located to all of Los Angeles!
The AMAZING catering, multimedia, valet parking and planning services were provided by Kitchen 12000.

BACKSTORY: COMMENTS/ANECDOTES: This was a great day for yardsaling! Multiple community yardsales, the Boy Scout flea market, a church rummage sale, this day had it all. We got a lot of stuff. 3 car-loads! A Russian Cyrillic typewriter. We actually made it through the entire route, surprisingly. We had talked about maybe skipping a section in the middle, but then we went ahead and continued on. Then later, we were like, "Damn, we should have skipped that stuff in the middle, but then we wouldn’t have gotten the stripper pole." Trade-offs! Our two goals were met though: we were specifically looking for floor lamps and power strips. By the way, Trump voters price stuff ridiculously.
SUMMARY: Got up around 7:05AM, made it out driving from McDonald’s by 7:48 and went out until 2:39PM for a total of 6 hours. Spent 4.24 plus ~.03 gas for 58.1 miles of driving (28.7 mpg @ .49/G), for a total cost of 9.27. We drove to 48 yard sales, stopping at 18 (38%) of them. We made 65 purchases (115 items not including the power blocks) for a total estimated value of ,207.61, leading to a profit/savings of ,038.34. So in essence, we multiplied our 9.27 investment by 6.13X. (Also, if you think about it, the profit counts for even more when you consider that we have to earn ,183 on the job, pre-tax, in order to take home the ,038.34 in cash that we saved. How long does ,038 of disposable income take to earn, vs the 6 hrs we spent here?) Anyway, this works out to a *post-tax* "wage" of 3.06/hr as a couple or .53/hr per person.
