Japan is a country full of surprises. If you are like me and are always on a car spotting session no matter where you go, your eyes are sure to be kept busy and a sore neck is almost guaranteed. But while Japanese enthusiasts love to use their pride and joys, no matter how exotic, how rare or how tuned they may be, the car in this video is simply on another level. This video is the web version with English subtitles of the DVD that is included in Motor Head Vol. 5, the Japanese car culture magazine I reviewed last week. Hit play and I bet you won’t believe your eyes. As the saying goes, only in Japan…

Japanese are able to assess and appreciate manmade things better than anyone. Just listen to the guy describe his car: Zero owner bias, he sounds like he really knows what he's talking about, and it doesn't look like its all gone to his head at all. Moreover, props to the producers for making this about the car -and nothing else (*ahem* magnus walker *cough* *cough*).

And this is why I love Japan so much! Such a rich car culture, so much colors to it, you can't possibly not see a certain car there, absolutely mind blowing!

@8go8 その962C実車見ました。パンダでお世話になってるショップで一時預りしてました。あとそのコンビニも何度か行った事あります。余計に日常感が。

@8go8 しっかり停めてますね^^;まぁ気づかなかったとか?… しかしレースカーを街乗りなんかしたら痔になりそうですね。モーターヘッドってこれ雑誌ですよね。今度立ち読んで見ます。

There's been 10 features since this post and I'm still coming back to watch this. So many times, I lost count.

@ProPan_jp 元のロードゴーイングカーに国内基準の保安品をつければ公道走行は可能でしょうね。ただ、このドライバーがファミマの身障者駐車場に停めてるのはいただけませんがw

Love that idle and the way it slinks over bumps in the road.  This is a true supercar.

Motor Head needs to do some English based publications/blogging. I love everything I have seen from them so far, operative word being seen. Wish I could read the backstories/articles and subscribe to it in English.I hope Motor Head sees the potential in branching to an English market.

Intro on this vid makes this car even more beautiful. Who agree's? :D

when the road is as smooth as glass like over there, yea for sure. in the pot hole ridden road of north america... maybe not.

Amazing. An even crazier that it's in Japan which may be the most difficult place in the world to drive such a wide machine on the street.

Awesome! I may have seen this car in Shibuya about 10 years ago. Was it originally plain white with Schuppan Porsche banners on it?

What a beautiful video. The rumble of the 962C exhaust gave me chills.

あったあったw しかしまぁ(乗ったことはないけど)苦痛の痩我慢の面白さだよねぇ.遥か昔の夏の夜,初期型の Countach LP400 に出くわして,あのバグウィングドア開けて出て来たドライヴァが,これと同じ半パンTシャツだったのを思い出す @kanabow_tw

Cool car, but the owner could've acted a little more excited about it. Damn, if I owned a street-legal racing Porsche like that there'd be tears of joy in my eyes!

Maintenance for that must cost an arm and a leg and a handful of other body parts too. That's one lucky owner.

Truely a car to be passionate about! Only a small percentage of drivers could use this weapon to its potential. 

I love it that its used on the street and not in storage.

Love this. Also love how he parks up in a disable parking place @ 2.16! Lol

I wonder what it takes to get such an extreme race car street legal. Is it just a matter of turn signals for a 962 like this? Would it be registered as a kit car or something similar?

Very cool video, the shot rolling up to the family mart is killer. Somehow I still don buy the part about the car being "comfortable" though lol.
