Porsche Keychain FINALLY Gets Put To Use

There used to be a store in a local mall that carried nearly every enthusiast accessory you could think of for cars. Keychains, leather goods, driving gloves, driving shoes, model cars, posters, signs, etc. You name it, they most likely had it. Back in the day (too long ago), that was one of my favorite stores and I spent many an hour perusing the shelves and glass cases for things to spend my hard earned dollars on.

One of the things I bought was the simple Porsche keychain pictured above. It was one of my favorite Porsche trinkets and I decided to save it for when I actually purchased a Porsche. Needless to say, I’ve been saving this thing for 20 plus years and I finally have had an opportunity to use it!

Although it only made it about 2 weeks attached to the Porsche key before replacing it with something else, it was cool to finally have a dream come true.


  1. I know *exactly* how you feel! I experienced the same thing this summer, when I finallllly bought my first Porsche, a 1996 993. 🙂

    I was recently reminded that when I was a boy, just starting to drive, I had the local hardware store make me a Porsche key, by just nicking it up a bit to look like a real key. (They sold metal keys with the car’s name on the key itself and I asked the guy to cut me a key, even though I did not have one to copy from! He must have thought I was crazy! Ha!)

  2. Ryan, that is a great story that you kept the keychain for 20 years! True dedication. I’m sure it was an amazing feeling after all those years…

  3. That’s exactly the kind of stuff I geek out on too. I’ve got drawers of stuff I’ve kept along the way waiting for just the right moment to have a trinket meet it’s destiny.

  4. Cool story..That little keychain that stayed with you, Finally gots its ride too 🙂

  5. That is cool. I have just collected a few Porsche pictures and small toy cars over the years. Maybe not real exciting, but still keeping the dream alive.
