Not just the first Petrolicious film I haven’t watched repeatedly but the first I didn’t watch all the way through. I think the other comments sum it up pretty well. Good on you for trying something new but I don’t think it worked. Mainly the music but even the footage was a bit irritating too.

I agree with the other comments here. Terrible music ruining fantastic cinematography. You guys have mastered the use of the camera, but insist on covering the siren song of a flat six with music from a low budget film. As soon as the music started I was disappointed. If you need an example of your previous perfection, see the Triumph TR3A Morning Coffee from April 2017. Use that as a template. Find incredible/beautiful/significant cars, insert them into that style of video, rinse & repeat. In the meantime, remove the music from this video and the 250 California video and post… Read more »

I would love to see and hear more of this car but I had to put the video on “mute” due to the terrible cheap and aggressive music you have chosen. Why??

I sadly have to say this is the first time I have this will to stop watching a Petrolicious video halfway (long before the very last second of it which is how I am usually enjoying the content you create on this website). The obnoxious music being the main reason, it’s really killing the whole point of the video, which was to enjoy the pure sound of an engine. On a more personal note I will give my 2 cent : I am very disapointed in this video. As far as I love 911s, I don’t find any interest in… Read more »

Sorry to make my first review of your films a negative one – there have been so many I have enjoyed, but this…It’s really annoying. Previous films have given real insight into the owners and their stories. Told us about the history of the car. Given us a sense of what it’s like to drive and why the owner loves it so much. This film does none of that. We hear nothing from the driver and can barely hear the car itself behind that stupid soundtrack. The overall effect is like a trailer for a Transformers movie. It’s dreadful. Sorry.… Read more »

Thank you! The over-the-top score that would have been rejected by GOT as too cheesy had me reaching for the mute button within seconds. Good grief!! It’s a frigging car.

It wasn’t shot in Sydney, it was shot about 50 miles North of Sydney in the Hawksbury area.

Who was the poor sucker who shot it? Yet another film on this site with no credits to the talent behind the images.

Shame on you again Petrolicious.

Title should have been “Wake up to the music of music drowning out a 3.8L RSR tribute”.

Great film, but way too short.

Would have rather just listened to the car.

This film might work better if it had some context, like the driver suddenly realizes he left the stove on and is in a hurry to get home before the house burns down. Regardless, the editing style is just too ADHD inducing.

What was that folded piece of paper with the colored squiggly lines on it that he was looking at?

Haha.

Well this footage was shot in Sydney Australia. We drive on the left here and even have 7/11s! As well as 911s… it would be nice to have had a lot less drama and a lot more car and driver. All that quick pedal work cut in with the car being calmly driven across a bridge was a bit weird. Congratulations to the owner of the car though – looks beautiful and from the sound bites does sound magical too. Thanks for the video Petrolicious. 👏🏼

can’t even hear the car. IF I wanted dramatic movie music I’d put on Rambo!!! let the pistons sing please

Correction…if things weren’t digital…

Any one notice…going by the 7-11 and gas station, as well the map, it looked like he was Stateside. But he was driving on the left side of the road and getting in and out of his 911 on different sides of the car on occasions.? If things were digital these days I’d ask if the film wasn’t in backwards.

This is the first Petrolicious FAIL! Horrible “music” and all that quick cut editing and faux drama. Terrible. Let us see the car. Let us hear the car. If there’s an interesting back story, tell it. Keep it simple.

The soundtrack was really overdone. Bad choice IMO. Made it sound like a Michael Bay movie trailer 🙁

Less music, more engine sound.

And let us see the car please. You can’t see anything if you keep cutting it.

so, I suppose if we are to continue to see the great content o past we will have to become paid subscribers ?”

the video was excellent but the music really distracts from the experience.

Randy Foulds

You know what you are going to hear, over and over. Cut the music. I know you don’t want to be repetitive but, keep giving us what we want. He real sounds. No music. Anyone can cut stuff like this with epic music. It takes good editing to make an interesting film without music.
Now, launch your editing software, mute the music tracks, and re-output “clean audio” version please.

Why add the music when it says wake up to the sound of Porsche ???
That’s what I wanted to hear other than that great films guys.
