Out goes 2020, and here comes 2021. Man, what a crappy year… 😣 I’m more than glad it’s over, and probably everyone feels the same. The pandemic hit us hard, but thankfully me and all my family stayed healthy. On the other hand my income was drastically affected, so things got a lot tighter around here. I think you all certainly noticed from the very few new model reviews I’m posting. The passion is the same, and so is the interest, but since money is shorter… Even so, I should not complain. Everyone I love is healthy, and that’s all that matters 🍺.
So let’s hope that things get better in 2021. Happy New Year!!!
The great Alain de Decadent, in this Petrolicious video, talks about one of my favorite cars from Maranello, the 288 GTO. Not as polarizing as the F40 and definitively less famous than its ancestor the 250 GTO, in my opinion the 288 GTO is THE best-looking Ferrari ever made after the 1980s.
Only in 2023, but then we will have a Porsche LMDh (Le Mans Daytona hybrid) car! I read the news on Jalopnik this afternoon, when they posted a link to Porsche’s Twitter page. According to both sources, Porsche will indeed be back to La Sarthe, with a brand new 1000 kg hybrid car with around 680 hp of power. After all the bad news lately with the LMH (Le Mans Hypercar) class, I confess I was feeling a bit bleak about the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But with the recent good news coming from Audi and Porsche, things look a lot brighter.
Last year, Jay Leno produced a video about Ruf’s CTR, also with an interview with Alois Ruf himself. Not only did he show the three generations of the CTR models, but also Alois Ruf and collector Bruce Meyer reveal very interesting tidbits about the cars. Being an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, it is a well-produced video and a very enjoyable watch.
