I saw the picture of the matte black Porsche on the U.K.”s Sun website, and instantly thought of the junker featured on American T.V. show Californication. I thought surely this vehicle was vintage with its spray-painted looking exterior. But no, it’s a 2008 model with all the trimmings. There is a house in my neighborhood that has two vehicles parked outside poorly spray-painted a matte gray. I have often thought of donating money to them to get decent paint jobs. Now I can make the same offer to the dealers selling David Beckham’s vehicle.

Its ebay auction end date is set to be Dec. 14 (off from Dec. 12 a few days ago) and no longer features the soccer legend’s name in the listing.

It never ceases to amaze me how cheap-looking can be extremely expensive and lucrative to those involved. I can’t be resentful. I can only be envious.
