This Porsche 911 Nurburgring "Drift" Is Downright Hilarious

We dare any drifter out there, from Mad Mike Whiddett to Vaughn Gittin Jr. or Daigo Saito, to replicate the accidental sliding stunt of the Porsche 911 driver in the video below without breaking the nose of his car in the process.

We also dare any stand-up comedian who wants to appeal to car enthusiasts to come up with a better gig than the one we can see in this clip. No, really, we do.

This piece is so damn good at giving an aficionado the giggle that we won't risk ruining the fun by throwing too many spoilers at you. Nevertheless, there are a few things we'll mention before inviting you to hit the "play" button and let hilarity have its way.

First of all, potential accidents are not to be taken lightly, but the part that made us smile has to do with the reaction of the driver once he entered the grass.

Secondly, while this rear-engined coupe might trick you into believing it's just a senior, air-cooled 911 that's not ready for the track, there are multiple elements on the car that could indicate the contrary - from the suspension and wheel setup, to the rollcage, this looks like a Neunelfer that has been thoroughly prepared for activities that involve flying from one vibrator to another on the circuit.

However, all the modding efforts in the world can't compensate for a driver who appears to be totally unprepared for handling a Porsche sportscar that has its engine at the back and lacks ABS.

Heck, we might just go ahead and call this an almost-autonomous drift, one that manages to take place without involving any electronics at all (fuel injection and other such basic paths don't count when it comes to this).

Thanks to sheer luck, the only consequence of this otherwise hardcore episode was probably a hefty laundry bill, so you shouldn't feel bad if you happen to join us down the dark humor path mentioned above.
