please tell me this hasn't happened......



Glen Fergusson - Sales and Marketing manager for a brand new Californian Porsche dealer. Has lost his job and faces possible legal proceedings as the company strives to reclaim the costs of the 18 Porches given away free under Glen's Opening day "buy one get one free promotion" "I admit I didn't really do the numbers properly on this one" said Glen who told reporters that he had "seen the concept work really well for coffee stores" and in terms of numbers you could argue that Glen's campaign worked. As the new Porsche dealer sold 18 Porches in the first hour of the store opening.



It took the head office a full hour to realise what was going on and subsequently shut the store.



Local man Bruce Stepper took out a second mortgage on his home after getting a promotional flyer in his mailbox. "I am ecstatic - I brought a shiny red Porsche today, got another one free and I have sold just sold it on EBay, all up I end up getting a Porsche 911 for $5000"



Jane Cameron was arguably even more entrepreneurial. The local Janitor purchased a Porsche using the dealers "no deposit finance plan for low income earners", sold both cars, paid off the finance account and walked away with $120,000 profit. The finance plan was another one of Glen's initiatives that has now been cancelled.



A red faced Glen stated "I have never really been too good at Math and I was sure the whole time we were making money - I was initially blown away by the amount of cars we were selling in that first hour. I had seen the "buy one get one free card" work extremely well for the new coffee shop down the road and thought what a great idea I will try it here."



National spokesman for the dealership chain was quoted as saying "We are just glad that the idiot didn't have time to run with his 'test drive 5 cars, get one free loyalty stamp card' campaign.

Nah, I just wear my cape and stand on the roof for our sales. it seems to bring people in, most of them drive blue cars and some drive white vans though.

The funniest part of the story might be that a Porsche dealership had a "finance plan for low income earners." 8p

Now that the guy is out of a job for his stupidity, he might as well announce his attempt to run for Congress, Senate, or even for President of the United States.

Don't know if it is true or not, but it is a "hot topic" right now--just Google "Porsche buy one get one free"
