Porsche Celebrates the V8 and its Need for Speed

Porsche has always delivered performance through technology and that’s not about to change


  • Back-to-back videos remind us why Porsche is great.

  • One video signals the return of the Top Gun and Porsche team.

  • The other goes over 45 years of the Porsche V8 engine.


Few automakers can make auto enthusiasts long for the past, love the present, and crave the future all at once. Among the handful, we have Porsche, a brand that straddles attainable dreams and impossibly exotic. In a pair of videos, the German sports car maker puts a smile on our faces.

First, Porsche and Top Gun are back. The return of the Top Gun: Maverick movie, 36 years after the original, reunites Tom Cruise and his “need for speed.” Throughout the brief trailer, we see the Mission R, a 992 Targa, a Taycan, and a pristine 70s 911 SC on which Jennifer Connelly is leaning.

If a new Top Gun movie wasn’t motivation enough to return to movie theatres, the promise of lots of Porsches should do it. The movie lands in theatres on May 27th.

The second video is possibly even more compelling and emotion-packed for die hard Porschephile. Entitles “A Love Letter to the Porsche V8”, it embarked on a 2-minute journey through 45 years of Porsche’s V8 engines.

From the gorgeous and still achingly desirable 928 to the Cayenne, all the way to the 918 Spyder and latest prototype hybrid V8 race cars, this video will give you chills.

These two videos are very much worth 2 minutes and 40 seconds of your time.
