Here Is a $200,000 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Tearing Through a Gravel Pit

The cars: they are meant to be driven. Not stuffed away in a garage to “collect value,” not treated like priceless objects never to be touched. Driven! That includes sideways through a gravel pit, especially if the car is a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Why the hell not?


You may remember those Tax The Rich videos from a few years back, where crazy rich dudes would film themselves hooning a Rolls-Royce across grass fields, doing fiery burnouts in a Jaguar XJ220 and drifting a Ferrari Enzo across a dirt road. It was all delightful stuff, but we haven’t heard from them in a couple years. Maybe they want to jail for tax fraud. It happens.

Now two Jalopnik readers, Jack Lumber and Adam Forbes, have done a video tribute of sorts to Tax The Rich in the former’s GT3 RS. It is delightful, insane, well-shot fun all around. (They’re on Instagram here if you like.)

See here:

Just listen to that naturally aspirated flat six scream as the car gets sideways, flinging dirt and rocks everywhere. Who cares if it has a price tag of around, if not more than, $200,000?

Cars are meant to be driven! Tell this to everyone you meet.

...Check out my gravel pit
A mystery unraveling
Wu-tang is the CD that I travel with
Don’t go against the grain if you can’t handle it...
