Tony Mazzagatti and Ramon Montez are instrumental pieces of the Las Vegas-based Porsche restoration shop called "Carl's Place". In recent weeks it has come out that Tony and Ramon will be starring in a television series called The 900 Series on Velocity. While there is no further information on when the series will premier, or what exactly the show will be about, it's fair to reason that there will be plenty of Porsche content, and that's always a good thing. We want to see more Porsches on TV, and surely you do as well. Thus far, we have not been able to find an official statement by Velocity regarding The 900 Series, but the show's twitter bio says "The Velocity Channel introduces The 900 Series...a new TV series all about and only about Porsches. Watch us restore, design, repair and introduce the vehicle."
While the shop drama TV shows have been all the rage for channels like History and Velocity for the last decade or so, we hope that The 900 Series follows a more appropriate formula for the Porsche fan. That manufactured and falsified drama won't pass muster with the more discerning Porsche owner. We're willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and check out the first few episodes before passing a judgement. We've got our fingers crossed that Mazzagatti and Montez can produce a show that we love.
To give the show a little more credibility with Porsche fans, they've announced a partnership with Pelican Parts, including a sweepstakes in which you can win a trip to Las Vegas and a walk-on role in the television series. Check out the Pelican Parts website for more information.
