We are looking for a car sponsorship for the summer
We are now looking for a car sponsorship for the summer.
Now, we’re not going to be unreasonable about this sponsorship. We understand the whole summer might be stretching it a bit, so if we could just have the car for the month of July, that would be great. And not too much to ask, right?
Also, since we are all about Finnish design we’d prefer a Finnish car. Of course we understand that’s impossible since such cars don’t exist. But there is Valmet Automotive who have been manufacturing foreign makes of cars since the 1960s, so that’s what we are going to settle for.
Here’s our preferred Top 5 Finnish-made cars we might consider:
1. Saab 900 Convertbile, 1986–2003
The obvious choice for summer, and such a classic. Only problem is that Saab kind of went bakrupt at the end of last year, so sponsorship looks unlikely at this point. But still our number one choice. No air-conditioning needed.
2. Euro Samara, 1996–1998
This “Eurofied” version of the Soviet/Russian economy car Lada Samara looks like a fine automobile, and is thus our second choice. We understand that Ladas are no longer sold in Finland, so sponsorship could be tricky. But maybe you are a private owner who wants to sponsor us?
Talbot Horizon, 1979–1985
A classic compact car, and probably real nifty to navigate around town. And judging from the picture above you can even drive it on some kind of moore. If Talbot as a brand didn’t cease to exist in 1986 this would so be our number one choice.
4. Porsche Cayman, 2005–2011
We’re going to be honest here: we are not really feeling the Porsche Cayman. Not really our style, and looks unpractical if we want to head out in the countryside. But if Porsche really wants to sponsor us, I guess we could drive this for a month. But we won’t be happy about it.
1. Fisker Karma, 2011–
The only car Valmet Automotive is manufacturing at the moment, so I guess this is the one that makes sense from a sponsorship perspective. Although we have to say that while we’re not usually that sensitive about these things the advertising for this car really is a bit much. Sure, the slogan goes “Pure Sensuality”, but to us it looks more like the driver just killed a prostitute and threw the body in the backseat. But maybe that’s just us.
Anyhow, Fisker people, get in touch for that sponsorship: you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And it’s going to be July pretty soon you know, so please hurry.
