I was driving down the highway this weekend when I came across the sight you see above, which of course prompted me to quickly insist my passenger snap a photo. Yes, your eyes don’t deceive you: That’s a Porsche 911 GT3 on a trailer that’s being pulled by a Porsche Cayenne Turbo. This person is living the life.
I posted this photo on Twitter and people seemed very excited, so I decided to share it with my Oversteer readers, too. For those of you who don’t know exactly why this is happening, the basic situation is this person is returning from a track day in their GT3 — and going to a track day generally means switching to racing tires, which you can’t really use on the street. As a result, track day transportation generally means you have two options: You can change your tires when you arrive and before you depart, a laborious process, or you can keep the racing tires on the car and simply use a trailer.
The more serious the racer, the more likely they are to have a trailer — but most racers tow their trailers with heavy-duty pickups like the Chevy Silverado or the Ford F-Series. Not this person. This person was cruising along with a 550-horsepower Cayenne Turbo performing tow duties, which is an amazing sight to behold: One brand-new, monstrously expensive Porsche pulling another brand-new, monstrously expensive Porsche. I loved it.
Unfortunately, this isn’t in the budget for most of us — a GT3 to have for dedicated race car duty or a Cayenne Turbo, let alone both. But it’s cool to see someone else living the ultra-Porsche dream.
