Default Jay Leno Mentions the 928 While Driving a 959

From his latest episode. The whole video is pretty good, but if you want to skip forward to where he talks a little about the 928 skip to the 23:38 mark. I hope Jay reviews a 928 one of these days. Hopefully if he does it will be with someone on RL that we all know. I nominate Rob Edwards!

Okay, this is weird but I watched this randomly just last night.

It it sounded like Leno is a 928 fan. I donít know if he owns one.

Was I the only guy disappointed when the 959 guy didnít know if it was difficult or not to change the spark plugs on his car?

The 959 was, or is, a phenomenal vehicle. A true testament to the Porsche engineers.

Plenty of people who own supercars woudn't know a sparkplug if it fell on them from the sky.

It's shiny, it's red, it's fast. I bought it. Spark plugs are for mechanics. lolz...

A lot of these cars on his channel get there by the owner sending him a note about their car and requesting a segment about it. We need to start an email campaign from Rennlist members to do a 928 episode, with someone from S Cal offering up a good example for him to drive.

I ran into Magnus Walker at the Porsche Experience Center last month, wanted to offer him a drive in the stroker but we were sort of gridlocked in the middle of the show. Would love to do a 'Youngtimer' episode with Jay Leno, that would be totally awesome. I'd have to do a _lot_ of detailing first, though.

Owner looked like Steve Jobs when it had his glasses on in the garage
