The new pictures of Ryan Thomas driving a Mercedes-Benz SL convertible had been drawing much attention lately. So what’s the fuss all about? In 2013 Thomas filed for bankruptcy.

Video: Porsche 911 Turbo Vs Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe

What happens if you pit the Porsche 911 Turbo (991) against a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4? How about versus a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe (W204)? For the first question, it’s a no-brainer that the Lamborghini will dominate the Porsche.
