When professor Ferdinand Porsche launched his iconic line of cars back in 1938 with the Model 64, he instantly won the hearts and respect of many of the world’s most powerful men—and the ladies who loved them.
For the next 75 years Porsche was known far and wide as one of the most recognizable and respected (some might even say, manly) automotive brands in the world. Heck, guys like Steve McQueen, James Dean, and just about anyone who was known for their bravado and liked to drive fast, had one…or two.
The company’s testosterone-driven image remained strong and was know throughout the world…That is, until they started cranking out cars in the early 2000’s like the ultimate grocery-getter, the Cayenne SUV, and the not-so-manly Panamera. It was during this pivotal period that many were left wondering if Porsche had become just another pretentious toy for metrosexual, urban dwellers?
Well, have no fear. We recently ran across video footage from the Klaperjaht off-road competition in Estonia that clearly shows Porsche owners haven’t all gone soft.
As you will see in the video clip below, this little beaut’ of a Porsche 924 has been mated with what appears to have been a Soviet GAZ-66 military vehicle to create what is most likely the manliest Porsche ever to get stuck in a mud bog.
