"The Heist" - Porsche's Super Bowl Commercial
Last week Porsche leaked their first Super Bowl in nearly 20 years.

The title for this commercial is "The Heist". It first takes place at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. The "bad guy" is shown seemingly stealing a Porsche Taycan.

What then insuess is a high speed chase with all of the security team from the museum hoping in various other Porsches trying to chase down the "bad guy". This is a brilliant commercial set in a beautiful picturesque german city feature the greatest cars in production today. Amongst the commotion Porsche managed to sneak one easter egg in the commercial. Shown in the background is the yet to be released 992 GT3.

As you watch the big game keep an eye out for this amazing work of art produced by the Porsche marketing team.
