The pair of famed commedians are going head to head in tomorrow night’s episode of Jay Leno’s Garage on CNBC. Jay will be driving a Lamborghini, as evidenced by his ‘typical Lamborghini owner’ outfit, and Foxworthy will be taking the more dapper approach with a tweed jacket and keys to a Porsche. The two marques have been playing in the same sports car arena for decades, but the two manufacturers tend to attract an, ahem, different clientele. The German sports car manufacturer is a bit less brash and in-your-face with their approach to speed, while the Italians are, well, typically Italian.
What you may not have known, however, is that both Porsche and Lamborghini were once quite well known for their farm tractor production. While Porsche hasn’t produced a tractor in decades, Lamborghini continues to make brand new units, generally for Italian farming needs, though some make it further afield through Europe. Jay’s twist on this Porsche vs Lamborghini battle is that both he and Foxworthy will be driving the brands’ respective agricultural offerings.
This showdown will take place on Thursday night at 10PM Eastern on CNBC. So check your local listings for appropriate viewing times or set your DVR.

Lastly, as fun as this was, lest you think the idea was/is new, think again. WorldChallengeTV on YouTube did a very similar stunt back in 2013.
