- Rob Dyrdek, MTV star
- 2010 Porsche Panamera Turbo
Robert Stanley “Rob” Dyrdek (born June 28, 1974) is an American professional skateboarder, actor, entrepreneur, producer, philanthropist, and reality TV star. He is best known for his roles in the reality shows Rob and Big and Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory.
If you think you’ve seen MTV star Rob Dyrdek cruising the streets of Hollywood in a 2010 Porsche Panamera Turbo, chances are it’s him.
Although Dyrdek owns a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, his Panamera satisfies his need for speed. He rates it a 10 out of 10. “For me, it’s perfect, man. The Panamera Turbo is a 10 because you plug your iPod in, your phone goes into the system, the dials in the pilot side of it is just so incredible, on top of the fact that it’s just so fast,” he says. “A very comfortable car to drive.”
The four-door Porsche turns heads on its own, and then gets a second glance as people realize it’s Dyrdek behind the wheel. “Absolutely, it’s more obnoxious to me than the Ferrari is,” he says. “I’ve got to get those tinted windows because half the people realize, ‘Oh, there’s Rob!’ Yeah, it’s ridiculous. I would prefer to be flossing in a nice set of rims behind a nice, dark tint.”
There are a couple of drawbacks to the Porsche. One is that he thinks everyone might also want to buy one, and the other is the car’s rear end. He describes it as “a bubble back. I just feel if they made a regular hatchback trunk it would be the best-selling car for Porsche,” he says. “I was waiting for two years for the Rapide and I was sick of waiting.”
