Feature Flick: Porsche 911 Transforms Driveway Into a Racetrack

porsche-driveway

McMansions and long driveways go hand in hand, but few could double as a racetrack.

The following video is a display of how a massive and excessive driveway is transformed in to a playground for a 2010 Porsche 911 (with PDK).In addition to the meticulously manicured lawns and babbling brooks, the driveway is complete with elevation changes and hairpin turns. At one point, the driver manages to pick up enough speed and gets the 911 airborne. Overall, it’s not a bad way to get in some practice runs between days at an actual track (if the driveway does indeed belong to him, of course).

While the driveway makes for an admirable racetrack substitute, we’re not quite sure if it’s up to par with the purpose-built driveway Rod Millen unveiled last April at his property in New Zealand. Millen’s driveway/track is one-mile long and took three years to complete. The track contains dramatic elevation changes and hairpin turns that mimic stretches of Millen’s favorite tracks around the world.

So if you got an invite to pilot your car at both driveways, which one would you choose?
