When you think of Hollywood celebrities with a serious automotive bug, Joe Rogan dwindles further back in the pack behind the usual cast and crew – Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Ralph Lauren, etc. But hold on, because the guy has quite a storied sports car past.
Most of us have a hard time wrapping our heads around the idea of letting a half million dollar hypercar gather dust in some parking garage. For the mega rich who buy those cars, though, they are often just toys that get forgotten as other things (or newer cars) come up. Dubious or slightly illegal incomes also force people to abandon their exotics, but whatever the reason, the owner of this Basalt Black Porsche Carrera GT in Canada hasn’t taken it for a spin in quite some time.
Growing up playing with Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars, Matt van Wyk always loved the Porsche 911 replicas, a green one in particular. Today, van Wyk’s Porsche is less a pipe-dream toy and instead a reality: a green, somewhat-rare European model, which added to the feeling that he had found something special.
You may remember our first 6 Cars that Need to be Revived post from a few weeks back. A lot of people had their opinions on that, both good and bad. But there were some other cool cars that, for one reason or another, that just didn’t make the cut.
I’m sort of having a mild obsession with speed this week. Obviously, Hennessey’s Venom F5 is going to be one of the fastest cars in the history of ever. That’s cool bro, but have you ever heard of the 9ff GT9-R? No? Well take a moment and let me tell you about it.
Go-kart tracks, by definition, are tight and twisty circuits meant for one vehicle and one vehicle only, go-karts. But try telling that to Porsche. The Germans took their latest and greatest mid-engine sports car – the Cayman GTS – to a go-kart track in northern Italy, and frankly the results speak for themselves.
Like race numbers, helmet design used to be important in identifying who was driving a particular car. This was important not only for spectators and journalists, it was also crucial for race teams with multiple cars as well as for people in charge of timing and scoring. With the advent of electronic transponders, however, times and positions are all recorded via a computer.
If you’re a fan of Formula 1, you’ll undoubtedly remember or have at least heard of South Africa’s Kyalami racing circuit, which played host to 20 F1 races between 1967 and 1993. Well, today it’s under new ownership – Porsche South Africa.
A car crash can be an expensive thing, an inconvenient thing and even a deadly thing. Thankfully, the wreck shown here from WreckedExotics.com was only two of those. In this case no one was seriously hurt, but when a truck carrying eleven luxury cars turned over after running into the back of a Mazda sedan in Xiamen, China, it racked up $1.6 million in damages and completely obliterated the back of the Mazda. One poor passenger’s face has probably seen better days, but he’s still standing and appears to be just fine.
Sibling rivalry is pretty adorable when it involves two toddlers. It’s not as adorable, though, when it involves billions of dollars and three of the world’s most prestigious sportscar brands. Porsche, Audi and Lamborghini are all fighting over the future of multiple sportscars, all on one platform.
