You may recall our story last month about soccer star David Beckham selling his modified Porsche 911 Turbo. We can now reveal why: it appears Beckham is using part of the $217,100 garnered from the sale of the Porsche for a new 2011 Chevrolet Camaro.

The V-8 powered Camaro SS, which in the spec Beckham ordered retails for about $55,000, is finished in a matte gray paint scheme and has been fitted with glossy black wheels and tinted windows and lights.  

Beckham has just started driving the car as he has been at home in the UK for the past three months and only returned to the U.S. in the past couple of weeks to start training for his current team, LA Galaxy.

Other cars in Beckham’s collection include a Cadillac Escalade, Jeep Wrangler, a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, another Porsche 911 Turbo and a Range Rover Sport.

  1. The paint job on the Camaro is interesting, it gives it a lot more mystery than it would get otherwise. I like that Beckham is embracing American culture.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Hmmm.......tired of my 911 Turbo, so I swap for an Australian, Holden-derived (see Pontiac G8), American cultured Camaro?
    And Beckham starts drug rehab when?
    Australian expertise is fine, not to mention that platform's been beat up & battle tested in the V8 Supercar and DTM series'.
    But let's be serious.
    American car culture ain't that desirable....and I've got the wasted U.S. dollars to show, having - in the past - trusted "American" car culture more than they have earned (aka, earned then deserved).
    Leaves a bit to be desired. (TRANSLATION UAW workers are no the cream of the crop.)

  6. M.M you clearly have no taste for vehicles of any "culture" if you feel American Car Culture is not desirable. Its the birth place of the muscle car and apart from high end pasta rockets from Italy, presents some of the most presigous car designs and performance records on the planet Earth. I have a 2010 Camaro SS and i wouldnt trade IT for a Porsche 911 turbo, no way no how. Nice choice in upgrade David Beckham

  8. I have never had the pleasure of owning a Camaro but at the age of 67 I still say the Camaro is the car. If I ever own a car it will one of them. They are awesome.

  10. I doubt David Bechkam is "trading" his 911 for a Camaro. The Camaro is undoubtedly a nice car, but comparing a chevy to a 911 turbo is laughable.

  11. Oh and the Camaro is actually a Holden VXR with Chevrolet badges, there is more Australian "car culture in the Camaro than American.

  12. Love all the comments about American Car Culture....And Agree that comparing a Camaro/GM to any Porsche is very laughable. I have tried the american cars and sorry for every penny (I am american by the way). I currently own three Porsches and a BMW (that was built in Europe)...One of my Porsches is a new 997 Twin Turbo. Have only added headers, DME flash, and BMC intake and can assure you I could smoke any Camaro or any Corvette with no trouble. I think my Cayenne S family SUV will beat most Camaros :)....So to the comment "I own a 2010 Camaro SS and wouldn't trade it for a Porsche 911 Turbo" I fully understand...You would need to sell your car and come up with another $100K to even touch one....And until you have owned/or driven one...You can't really knock it with any credibility....But to each his own.......ONly thing I do not like about his custom 997 is the matte paint....You rub it too hard and the paint never matches again! Yikes...
