In John Hughes's classic teen comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," the main character convinces his buddy that his father's sports car is not something to be kept on display like a museum piece. To enjoy it, one must drive it and put miles on the odometer. That car may have been a classic Ferrari, but the folks at Porsche seem to agree with Ferris Bueller.

Their "My Daily Magic" film competition invited those aspiring to follow in Mr. Hughes's footsteps to create a 90-second short film using the theme "everyday magic," showing sports cars as more than just occasional pleasures. Now Porsche has invited the public to go online and vote for their favorite .

After receiving hundreds of entries in the first round, Porsche selected ten finalists to create a second piece and compete for the grand prize. Before the second round began, though, Porsche sent the finalists to Porsche Sport Driving School for some creative inspiration. Apparently, this strategy paid off. The ten films, available for viewing at mydailymagic.com, include a wide range of interpretations from sappy to silly, but each has its own unique and imaginative take on life driving one of the world's most sought-after brands.

In "Small Town Race" by James Sangalan, a Porsche driver is excited by the thought of a drag race, even if his potential competitor is not. Edwin Eversole's "Beautiful Today, and Tomorrow" has its stoplight moment, too. His film takes a broad view of the sports car's role in life, with driving a Porsche as part of an adventure, rather than the adventure itself. "It's a Magical Life" by Michael Koerbel features a familiar Porsche attribute employed as a transitional technique.

All of the films have high production quality and include Porsche vehicles, so film buffs and car nuts alike will enjoy picking their favorite.

The winner will travel to LA for the film's premier, and will receive a one-year lease on a new Porsche 911. The winning film will screen at Landmark Cinemas nationwide and on the Reelz Channel.

Begging Ferris Bueller not to take his father's precious car, his friend Cameron says, "Ferris, he never drives it! He just rubs it with a diaper!" We all know what happens next. Perhaps if Cameron's father was a Porsche driver he would not have left his favorite car at home that spring day.
