Jeremy Clarkson

Jeremy Clarkson Driving a Porsche 911 Targa

These pictures were taken by a Reddit user (by the username of DublinItUp). They appear to show Jeremy Clarkson driving a new Porsche 911 Targa (it looks like it is a Targa GTS to be more exact).

The image started a bit of a debate on the social network as people started talking about why Mr. Clarkson would be driving a car from the German marquee. After all the former Top Gear presenter (and future host of a new automotive show on Amazon) is known as someone that isn’t a huge fan of the brand.

Saying that he isn’t a fan of Porsche may be putting it mildly. He tends to dislike most of their cars for not changing their styling and generally for not being a Ferrari.

Having said this, he is a big fan of the 928 and he also said some very good things about the 911 Turbo (996). So, is it just that he plays a part on TV and deep down he likes the cars from the German performance car maker?

That could be it, but we feel there may be a simple answer that is overlooked by many. Him driving the car may say nothing about if he likes the 911 or not. It may very well just be a press car.

When we have had a media vehicle manufactures normally give it to you for a week. This gives you time to learn about how it drives and to get a good idea of what to say about it for a review. This car is very likely a press car for an article and/or video footage on his new car show. That is if it is actually Jeremy Clarkson and not someone that looks a bit like him.

    I’m not sure that’s Jeremy Clarkson. Looks like a bit too much hair.
