"100 Porsches and Me" is a road movie about the obsession of driving a Porsche, a journey into the dreams and fantasies of those for whom a Porsche has become the purest expression of who they actually are. A film about the myth of a company and a brand which has fascinated people like Adolf Hitler, Andreas Baader, James Dean and, of course, myself. A film about a car which has become the synonym for my own ambivalent relationship with Germany, a country which can come along so conservative and bourgeois, but was still capable of producing this car - an icon of perfect design, a high-tech-toy, a retro-looking piece of the swinging 60s and a revolution in the most untypical of German fields: universal good taste.
