      I don't know if anyone's heard of The Facebook, but Porsche did this promotion where they put peoples names on their race car to promote the fact that they had a million 'fans'.

      Anyway, I got my name is on there. Anybody else?

      Also - needs bigger rear wing!

      No, my name isn't on there but me and my dad both got to sign the New Beetles at the NAIAS in Detroit when they were released. They're pretty much the same car, right?

      if it is, cool.
      but not sure how it would have got there.

      maybe it is since i think i am a fan of that page.

      I'm confused, I typed in names that you can clearly see on the car (when you use the zoom function) and it says "Sorry your name is not on the car." Something's wrong.

      I definitely registered in time and it's telling me I'm not on their either.
