What do you get if you take one of the most capable cars and keep refining it and refining it? The answer is sophisticated and beautiful. The Porsche 911 GT3R. 480 horsepower in a car that weighs only 2646 lbs. WANT.

About Post Author
Drifting: Sideways from Japan to America," the first book ever produced on the topic of drifting. One year later, I was contracted to create the first mass-produced and internationally distributed calendar on the topic of Drifting (2008 release). These projects were just a labor of love for me, so I never expected them to be as successful as they were; I certainly didn't expect to randomly see my book on bookshelves and coffee tables in other countries. That book certainly opened a lot of doors for me! In fact, one of the many doors that my book opened up for me was that of a big video game company in Canada - Electronic Arts. One of the art directors stumbled upon a copy of my book at the local Chapters Bookstore, and they eventually decided to contact me. I was shocked and honored when they told me they used my photos and stories as a reference to add authenticity to their video games. Soon enough, I found myself getting flown up to Vancouver to consult EA on the Need for Speed franchise's marketing/brand extension projects. I became one of the presenting hosts on camera for EA's Birth of Pro Street documentary film that aired on SpikeTV and Motors TV internationally. Soon after, we formulated some plans and began working to create one of the biggest corporate-owned car culture blogs on the internet - Speedhunters. A few years later, I was headhunted by a company called Cie Studios to spearhead a similar project - to develop and launch a content website for Nitto Tires. Soon thereafter, a new media outlet called Driving Line was born. The success of that project led to the website winning top advertising awards from the Content Marketing Institute, but soon thereafter, I left the project so I could team up with a few close friends to develop new automotive events as part of the overall MotorMavens Movement. In 2012, we launched a car meet for Toyota, Scion, and Subaru enthusiasts called 86FEST when the Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ were announced, and it grew to become the largest 86 event in North America. This year, we are launching an all new event for Forced Induction vehicles called Boost Bash! Our website and brand has come a long way since it first started in 2009. MotorMavens is driven by the passion and hard work of each of our contributors. Thank you to everyone who has supported us in our mission to share our website and our authentic passion for the automotive scene! -Antonio Alvendia Founder of MotorMavens, 86FEST, and Boost Bash. www.ANTONIOALVENDIA.com Connect to me on Facebook!
