There's something about an aircooled flat-six that sounds positively rowdy. Perhaps it's the mechanical roar it makes. Maybe it's the reverberation off the trees and the combination of engine noise with tire squeal. Either way, this car is fantastic, and driver Willi Jenni drives the wheels off of it.
Welcome to Onboard of the Week, a feature where we spend that pesky time between race weekends looking at awesome footage from inside the car.
This video shows everything awesome about driving a classic 911 hard. Sure, it'll wiggle a bit under hard braking as the car figures out where to shift all that weight behind the rear axle. Once it's back on sure footing, though, it can rocket out of a corner, on power before most mid- or front-engined cars can even think about it.
That's why I love that this onboard features both exterior views as well as the view inside the cockpit. See sideways hillclimb 911. See inside of sideways hillclimb 911.
There's also the matter of that sound. No music. No sound effects added in post. Nada pumped into the cabin via speaker. Just pure flat-six joy.
Have an awesome onboard video to share? Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or post it in the comments below.
