Woman Mistakes Porsche 918 Spyder for Corvette, Asks Owner the Wrong Question

 It’s difficult for me to imagine an automotive enthusiast who doesn’t take pleasure in using a Corvette’s cammed V8 as soundtrack for various activities. Nevertheless, to enjoy the ‘Vette up to the point where you mistake a Porsche 918 Spyder for one, that’s something unexpected.

This is what appears to take place in the footage below, with a woman thinking the Porsche halo car in front of her is a Chevy’s finest sportscar. She even went ahead and asked the owner about the model year of his Corvette.

Not even the massive aero pack present on the Porsche thanks to the Weissach package option, managed to tip her off. Zora, mid-engine thoughts, anybody?

The man showed an attitude that has to be suitable for a Zuffenhausen machine driver. He must’ve realised how far off the lady was, so he didn’t bother explaining. A “2015” was enough and, come to think of it, he couldn’t be accused of lying. This is one man that drove away into serenity, which suits the hybrid powertrain of his machine perfectly.

You see, Porsche drivers stopped explaining their cars ages ago and it’s all connected to the diversity of the 911 line-up. Let’s say you own a modern-day GTS. In order to let everybody who asks about your Porsche know the truth, you’d need a good plan.

The first requirement is to come up with a brief explanation on how the GTS is halfway between the normal Carreras and the track-savvy GT models. From this point on, you can improvise depending on the sub-version you own.

Returning to the ‘Vette Lady, she might have been sitting inside a Cehvrolet Corvette or close to one at the time of her inquiry. The soundtrack of the video has determined us to believe that, and you can check it all out behind the "play" button below.
