The newest video from our friends at Petrolicious features racecar legend Derek Bell driving a Porsche 718 RS60 that won the Targa Florio in 1959. It’s 11 minutes of raspy exhaust noise, winding roads and Porsche poetry.

Bell goes on about how honored he was to be a part of Porsche’s history and to drive the Targa Florio route in a car that predates his time with the company. It’s an enamored history lesson of Porsche’s racing pedigree, beautifully shot by Petrolicious. And at the end, we find out it’s just a commercial for the new 2017 Boxster 718.

Yep, that’s it. Porsche and Petrolicious couldn’t pass up the synergy of putting Derek Bell in an old race car to promote a new car named after it that will do nothing greater than sit in the back of the parking lot at your local country club. Corner parked, of course. Enjoy.
