Pedro Mota is taking motovlogs to a whole new level

I recently stumbled across #PedroMota on Youtube.

911 Owner Stories: Dan and his 993 Carrera 4S

I just randomly stumbled across this little video from Porsche. It’s an owner story of a chaps passion for this Porsche 911 – my fave model the 993. He loves it!

His description of the driving process and visceral feel of driving one of these machines is spot on!
