  • Porsche Carrera GT Gemballa Mirage GT

    The plate on the back may be from Massachusetts but, per the video description, the car is being driven around Beverly Hills. That just means it's come home to its natural habitat--or at least the most natural habitat that doesn't happen to be a race track.
