When I bought my first new turbo in 07, they sent out a similar turbo model, very cool.

I'm jealous over this.... I would love one. $210 is a little much, so fingers crossed I get one,

I'm sure Porsche's marketing group has very precise calculations on who to send these to based on lots of analytical data..

I guess they are not sure about me. I received the book only.

I received the book only as well and immediately sent a message to Porsche asking their consideration. The fact appears to be that the Cut Away Turbocharger is NOT available for purchase through a Porsche Dealer. So if you didn't get one in the mail, you are SOL and can't get one even for the 200 bucks! I could imagine sending them to current owners of a car that they had purchased from a Porsche Dealer. That does not appear to be the selection criteria. I would call sending the model only to a select group and sending the book to others a marketing mistake if both items are not available in some fashion from Porsche.
