James Bond meets Mad Max in this cool, custom-built Porsche 911. It’s stylish, fast, and outfitted to escape the bad guys in a rocky desert.
For the car lovers over at the YouTube channel The Smoking Tire, getting behind the wheels of dope rides is just another day at work. And even from the cockpit perspective inside an absolute ripper, they’re technicians at heart.
But there’s no faking the pure joy of this test driver of the Russell Built Baja 911, as captured by the car builder and copilot T.J. Russell. They drive the souped-up Porsche “over whoops, jumps, sandy washes, and up a comically narrow and sketchy trail,” the video says.
“This was one of the most fun videos we’ve ever made!” Watch the action oscillate from loud desert fun to cerebral gearhead analysis.
