Fiat 124 Spider Abarth, Porsche 911, Sports Car Personalities, Jamie Oliver's Land Rover
About This Episode
Have you ever wanted a Land Rover SUV that could churn butter, make toast, and dispense olive oil at the touch of a windshield washer button? Apparently Jamie Oliver did, because Land Rover built him one, a comedic gift for which we are eternally thankful on this week's episode.
We also talk about how poorly-executed the Fiat 124 Spider Abarth is - aka the Italian Miata - and have a deep philosophical discussion about whether a car that's so amazingly competent in every situation, like the Porsche 911, could ever truly win a driver's heart, or whether the most memorable sports cars - like earlier generations of said 911 - need to be at least a little bit weird/scary/rough around the edges.
