Porsche’s new subscription service gets you your perfect car for $2,000 a month

Porsche

When you think of subscription services, media-based companies like Spotify and Netflix are probably the first ones to come to mind. Interestingly enough, now comes word that one of the world's premier luxury automakers wants to roll out a unique and forward-thinking take on the subscription model. According to a report from Bloomberg, Porsche is launching an intriguing new subscription program that will enable car aficionados to get behind the wheel of various Porsche vehicles for relatively little money -- with relatively, of course, being the operative word.

Dubbed Porsche Passport, the program has multiple tiers, with the most wallet-friendly option starting at $2,000/month. At that price, subscribers will have on-demand access to a Porsche 718 Boxster, Cayman S, Macan S or Cayenne. If you're willing to splurge, say to the tune of $3,000 per month, you'll have unfettered access to 22 different Porsche models, including a Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Panamera 4s sports sedan. It's not exactly chump change, but if you have an affinity for luxurious performance vehicles, this seems like a great way to enjoy the Porsche experience without having to shell out six figures. It's worth pointing out that the subscription fee includes detailing, maintenance, insurance, and any applicable taxes. Notably, a  one-time $500 activation fee will also be charged to subscribers.

T-Mobile Netflix on Us

Last month, T-Mobile debuted a new perk for its customers: a free standard Netflix subscription. It's not the best offer in the world, since it requires multiple lines on the account to work, but for anyone who qualifies it's difficult to turn down free stuff.

Less than a month after T-Mobile announced Netflix On Us, the streaming company turned around and hiked prices on its cheapest plans. Luckily for T-Mobile subscribers, your cell carrier is picking up the tab.
