There’s no doubt about it. Porches are the coolest, most eye-catching cars of all time — so it just makes sense that movie directors would want to see them in their movies! Of course, as Porsche repair specialists in Encino and Pasadena, we always get excited when we spot a Porsche on the big screen.
Whether it’s the Porsche 944 in Sixteen Candles, the 911 in Red 2, or the 996 in Gone in 60 Seconds, there’s nothing wrong with the cars we love getting a little screen time. That’s why we’re breaking down a handful of our favorite Porsche appearances in movies below. Keep reading to learn more, and if your Porsche is in need of service or repair, schedule an appointment today.
Porsche 911 Turbo – Bad Boys
When you think of 1994’s Bad Boys, do you think of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence? Or do you think of the super-cool black Porsche 911 Turbo? It’s hard to deny the appeal of such a tough looking car — and it’s hard not to be jealous of the stars getting to drive it in the movie.
Porsche 911 GT3 – Fast Five
If you’re not up to speed with the latest Fast and the Furious movies, you’re definitely not the only one. Although the many sequels in this franchise have gotten bigger and more over the top over the years, they’re certainly entertaining. That’s especially true of Fast Five, when the beautiful blue Porsche 911 GT3 shows up, putting an end to the franchise’s disappointing lack of Porsches.
Porsche 911S – Le Mans
When it comes to old-school cool, Steve McQueen is pretty hard to beat. Combine McQueen with the undeniable coolness of a 1970 Porsche 911S in a color of gray that’s cooler than McQueen himself and you’ve got a movie that’s really something to behold. Best of all, the car that appears in the movie is that actor’s personal vehicle which sold for nearly $1.5 million at auction after the film had wrapped.
