What’s Like To Take The Driving Test In A Sports Car: Video
Imagine learning to drive in something as mediocre as a Chevy Cruze or a Ford Focus – they are safe and easy to drive. But, what if you showed up for your driving test, and found out that you would be testing in a 400 horsepower Porsche Carrera?
That’s exactly what happened to a few people in a new video released by Porsche. In the video, the poor victims of this cruel prank are at a loss. One is confused as he looks for the engine and oil dipstick under the front hood, and the poor female driver doesn’t even know where to find the ignition switch. The video goes on to show these inexperienced drivers attempting to accelerate and stop smoothly, and negotiate turns. Some of the reactions and expressions of the drivers may be acted out, but I have a feeling they really are amateurs when it comes to driving high-end sports cars.
The video is an advertisement for Porsche’s Experience Center where newbies to the high-end, sports car segment can learn to properly control a Porsche on the Le Mans Circuit. Multiple courses are offered from beginner to mastery, and you can learn to properly drive cars like the Porsche Boxster GTS, Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS, and Porsche Cayman GTS.
Normally commercials are annoying, but this one is actually funny and well worth the watch. Seriously, though, what isn’t funny about watching a newbie try to find the engine in the front of a Porsche or the clutch on a dual-clutch transmission. Watch the video and have a few laughs yourself.
