Los Angeles: Nate Hassler

Nate Hassler started off his summer with two very special Porsches. First, the overall winning car from this year’s Nürburgring 24 Hour endurance race; Nate shot Manthey Racing’s Porsche 911 GT3R in pit lane at the Nürburgring the morning following the race. With dirt, confetti, and empty bottles everywhere, not to mention lingering fog, the dirty “as raced” patina of the car was at home in this strangely serene setting.

Next up, Nate had a go with Manthey Racing’s specially modified Porsche 911 GT3 road car, dubbed the 911 GT3 MR. Headquartered at the Nürburgring and playing a major role in Porsche factory racing, Manthey Racing has done something truly impressive to make this amazing car just a little bit faster, cooler, more nutty.

Back Stateside, Nate checked one off the bucket list - Experience the Bonneville Salt Flats, with help from Mercedes-Benz' AMG C 63 S. Yes, it's fast.
