How to Drive a Porsche 718 Properly. We’ve been blown away by the positive response to our film featuring the 1960 Targio Florio-winning Porsche 718 RS 60 being driven tastefully by Derek Bell. But’s time to come clean, however: we’ve been holding a little bit of footage back.
Ever wonder what this lightweight mid-engined Porsche looks and sounds like from the driver’s seat? This is our uncut experience featuring one of Derek’s runs in the car, and once the Porsche is up to temperature it’s clear the car is begging to be driven faster and faster. The pair weren’t out to set speed records, but keep in mind how quickly they’re traveling given how harrowing and narrow the roads in Sicily are.
