Porshe's special edition models may soon only be available through subscription service

When Porsche announces a new special edition car, it usually sends collectors into a frenzy trying to snap up a piece of history.
It is these limited editions that have put Porsche in the spotlight in recent years, ranging from the 918 Spyder, back to the 911 GT.
This immense demand sometimes leads to buyers flipping their new cars and selling them for a tidy profit just months after they purchased the vehicle.
A few years ago when the 911 R hit the market, there were reports of collectors spending over five times the car's retail price just to skip waiting lists.
To counter buyers that are only looking to make a quick profit on these incredible machines, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume has been looking into possible solutions, and has potentially found the perfect one.
“Our interest is to sell cars for drivers, not dealers,” said Blume. “We put so much love into them, with the goal of people driving them not to put them in a garage.
“One thing we could do is look at leasing models to try to avoid this kind of dealing, so the car doesn’t get sold on for a period of time. It is one solution.”
Porsche retailers sell these limited edition cars to regular customers for the most part, but unfortunately, this hasn't stopped speculators from making a quick buck on them.
Porsche isn't the only brand that has looked into using a subscription service in recent times, but usually the service is offered to customers to help them make up their mind rather than prevent them from owning the car.
