MINI refuses to take 'no' as an answer from Porsche concerning its proposed challenge, and now MINI has stepped its efforts into overdrive with a Rocky IV parody.
MINI wants Porsche to risk complete humiliation...with really very little to gain, and put their Carrera 911 up against the much less sophisticated, less pricey MINI Cooper S in a race at Road Atlanta located near Porsche's U.S. headquarters in Georgia.
Porsche took the time to consider the challenge, but after consideration, decided there was more to lose than to gain by accepting the challenge on MINI's terms, suggesting instead MINI come race Porsche at a real sanctioned event, such as "Sebring, Le Mans, Daytona or any other sanctioned race where there is more at stake than T-shirts and valet parking space." Ruh-roh, themz is fightin' words!
Naturally, MINI refuses to take no for an answer, has bombarded Porsche with taunting messages, included the latest: a parody video of Rocky IV that places MINI as American underdog Rocky Balboa against the steroid-infused Russian Ivan Drago - except in this case, it is German vs German.
