If you're not familiar with Ken Block or the sport of Gymkhana, then take a minute and check out first link at the end of this post. Basically, Block has the ability to defy physics, gravity and other laws with his amazing driving skills. He does things in (and with) a car that just don't seem possible and he does a lot of them in a Ford Fiesta. Yes, it's a heavily modified Fiesta, but it's still a Ford.
What Does Gymkhana Look Like in a Porsche?
Up until now we haven't seen any real attempts a Gymkhana in a Porsche. We've seen lots of drifting videos and rides on the track, but none of the full scale, high quality productions that Ken Block is known for. The video below changes that.
Admittedly, the driving in this video isn't on par with what Ken Block does, but it's the first real attempt we've seen at Gymkhana in a Porsche. While it is a bit painful to sit through some of the bad acting (and the intro is quite long) the production value is top notch. Here's hoping that we see more of Modesto Martin doing Gymkhana in his heavily modified Porsche 996.
