Porsche Junior Is My New Favorite Nürburgring Nordschleife Conquerer

What, you thought I was talking about a Porsche Junior driver? No, no. I love Carrera Cup as much as the next 911 fanatic, but think older. I don’t know if it’s the jet lag or what, but there’s nothing funnier in the world right now than Walter Röhrl setting a Nordschleife lap with the Porsche Junior tractor.

Hey, don’t knock it. Tractors are great! I couldn’t convince my parents to let me drive anything else as a kid, but I could convince them to unleash me on the John Deere riding lawnmower under the guise of “mowing.”

Behold: here’s a Porsche legend driving, well, a Porsche legend—and it’s the one that is the least likely to send you into the wall.
