Porsche 911 Turbo Becomes a Lamborghini in Apocalyptic Mobile1 Ad

There are so many forms of art depicting the apocalypse that we lost count of them and yet we haven’t seen one that portrays the end of the world as far as the automobile is concerned. Until now that is.

No, we’re not here to drive you aficionados into depression by talking about how the dinosaur juice is going to end. Nonetheless, if a day comes when Porsche will become Lamborghini, that should be the end of the supercar world.

Before you say anything, you should know the idea doesn’t come from us. In fact, this is somehow the topic of the aforementioned lubricant commercial. We’re not entirely sure this is the message here, but let’s get to the details that made us understand that.

The clip’s description tells the story rather well: “In this spectacular film a mean and aggressive machine bull is conceived and brought into being by the blood of Porsche, the Mobil1 motor oil. The concept of this co-branded piece is to show how Mobil 1 motor oil is the most hi-tech and durable oil available for Porsche's high performance cars.”

You can really blame us for thinking about Lamborghini when a mechanical bull is the topic here, can you?

As a brief reminder, Porsche actually attempted to take over the entire VW Group

The Zuffenhausen company may be a small volume manufacturer, but it almost managed to take control of the Volkswagen Group in 2008. The scheme, which was backed by “financial engineering”, backfired after Porsche failed to acquire the 75 percent stake required for the move.

Nonetheless, Porsche was left with massive debts and, in an unexpected plot twist, it ended up being taken over by VW. Lawsuits regarding the matters are still ongoing.

Now that things have settled within the VW Group, there's no reason to fret - Porsche won’t turn into Lamborghini anytime soon, at least not on Audi’s watch.
