Porsche and Ferrari are rivals, but how did it get to be that way? Most models are marketed to different segments, but from a performance stand point they are extremely comparable. We have made this documentary style video that covers the history of the two makes and just how they became rivals.
Who will be the next great Porsche race car driver? The Porsche Young Driver Academy is a place where select promising young drivers are put through their paces to see if they are the future of racing for the German performance car maker. Racing is very important to the brand’s image and development, so choosing and grooming young drivers is very important.
This video is the full documentary of the trailer that we posted last weekend. The academy tests the young drivers on everything from slick conditions and track driver to how to deal with the media. All of the young drivers in the documentary come in as winning racers in their chosen racing series.
The documentary follows the young up and coming racers of Sean Johnston, Cooper McNeil, Kyle Marcelli, and Spencer Pigot. All of these young drivers are under the age of 25, but already show a lot of promise and poise. The documentary also features Patrick Long, Andrew Davis and Hurley Haywood as they help test the young drivers.
Keep an eye on these young drivers as any one of them may be tomorrows endurance racing star.
Luciano Rupolo is quite a car guy and car collector. He has been involved in many races featuring historic cars and in many rally races as well. His collection includes some interesting cars such as a Ferrari 250 GT/E, a Corvette Stingray, an Alfa Romeo, a Porsche 356, a Brizzarrini and much more. This video features a short documentary about Luciano and shows off his historic car collection. It also has pictures of some of the races that he was involved in and features images of Ferrari GTOs and Ford GT40s just to name a few great cars.
The cars in the collection are all incredible, but there is one car that really stands out. The last six minutes of the video covers the finding and restoration of the earliest Porsche known in existence, Porsche #004. You may say, wait, there is a #003 known to exist and this is true, however because that was built in Gmund (Austria) and had to be sent to Switzerland for coach work it was actually registered a year after #004.
The video is in Italian, but has English subtitles so that we English speaking people can enjoy the video as well.
Porsche has made some of the greatest sports cars of all time. From the 356 to the 911 every Porsche sports car has been special in its own way. While Ferdinand Porsche made cars for many other manufactures (who could forget cars like the VW Type 1, a.k.a. the VW Bug) it was the car that bears his last name that most people think of.
Well, the above video is a trailer for an upcoming documentary about one Italian gentleman that has a very early Porsche. The Porsche is Porsche #004 and is one of the earliest Porsches to be known to still be in existence. Since the video is a teaser trailer, we’ll have to wait a little while until the full documentary is released.
