Set aside for a moment the glaringly obvious suggestion that Pampers should've sponsored a Porsche Boxster, not a Carrera, to promote their new diaper caddy, the Porsche Box. No one in the fast-paced worlds of diaper marketing and motorsports drives by looking in his rearview mirror. And besides, there's no Boxster Cup in Germany.
And while it's true that if Eichin Racing's rookie driver Adam Blair had done a little better earlier in the 2002 season of The Carrera Cup, there probably would have been fewer photocaptions for the Pampers Porsche like "his pants are full," Pampers deserves full credit for taking a chance on a marketing channel most babygear companies ignore.
Blair rallied at the Cup's last race, gaining the pole position at Horkenheim. But his Google results since then are a little spotty. Live fast, retire young, become a mortgage broker, that's his motto now.
As for the Pampers Box, which was able to hold an entire package of Pampers, a case of wipes, and various other lotions and potions, it didn't fare so well, either. There are a couple of pictures lingering in the Google Image results for German etailers, but there IS at least one still for sale--in Hungary. It'll set you back 6,900 forints, or about $US35, coincidentally about the same as the Pampers Porsche's 2002 winnings.
