Jay Leno Gathers Two Of The Greatest Porsches Of All Time On the Track

/ Comments

An all-original 1973 2.7 RS and a brand-new 2016 GT3 RS.

Jay Leno is back on television with his show, Jay Leno's Garage, airing Wednesdays at 10:00 P.M. every week on CNBC. Last week, Leno met with a few celebrities like Gabriel Iglesias, Goldberg, and even Vice President Joe Biden. Even though the next episode has not aired yet, Leno has posted a sneak peak over on his YouTube channel. The new episode features actor and race car driver Patrick Dempsey. Dempsey, in addition to being an Emmy award winning actor, is also a professional race car driver for Porsche and has been on the podium at LeMans.

The two celebrity gearheads hop into a completely original 1973 Porsche 911 2.7 RS. Just 1,500 RS models were built in 1973, and the one in this episode is estimated to be worth around $1 million. Even though Dempsey is a race car driver, he was a bit hesitant to go all out in such an old, and valuable car.

Luckily, they also had a 2016 911 GT3 RS waiting in the pits. Once Dempsey gets Leno in the new 911 he really shows off his racing skills. Last week, Leno met with Ferrari collector David Lee who assembled his amazing collection. This week, we get to see two amazing Porsche models that span more than 40 years get driven on the same track.
