The marketing division of Porsche international has been thrown into disarray after it was revealed last week that a 944 Carrera was purchased from a German dealership by a man with a large penis.
Suspicions that the Porsche's marketing strategy was missing its target were raised as much as three months ago when it became clear that two of the company's cars had been purchased in Europe by males whose penises were of a relatively normal size.
The disturbing trend suggests that millions of dollars have been wasted in creating the image of Porsche as a mechanical and emotional prosthesis for men suffering with comically small members.
The "Surrogate Strategy," as it is know at the Leipzig headquarters, has been the foundational marketing thrust for Porsche since the early fifties, when researches noted a sizable correlation between men with large incomes and smaller than normal genitalia.
To correct the flagging image Porsche is currently looking at a raft of options including making future models ribbed, black and with V8 engines that actually throb.
