We don’t always agree with YouTube influencer Nick Murray, but on this, we see eye-to-eye: people often erroneously consider the 718 Porsche Cayman to be “the poor man’s 911.” In fact, as Nick asserts, the light, mid-engine machine may be “the very best sports car that Porsche makes.”

Nick Murray is our kind of car enthusiast: thoughtful, humble, articulate, and, most importantly, passionate about beautiful cars. About four months ago, Nick sold his BMW M4. In its place, he ordered a tailor-made Porsche 911 991.2 Carrera 4S. Many of his fans shared his journey and his excitement with him from when he initially placed his order all the way up to his recent pick-up. Check out his videos on this page dedicated to the process. We’re thrilled for the man, and we wish him many miles of fun and adventure in his new baby!

Sam Fane (Seen Through Glass) has finally selected his new TrackWorthy car. And what an awesome choice: the McLaren 540C. For Sam, beholding his very own supercar for the first time is dream-come-true moment, and his excitement after many sleepless nights of unbearable anticipation is palpable!

Tim (Shmee 150) is in Dubai amidst a fleet of all sorts of McLarens. He shares his thoughts in depth with us on what it’s like to live with the “baby McLaren,” the 540C. He does an excellent job comparing all important aspects of the car to others in the McLaren lineup. Also, given the impressive company he keeps in Dubai, the video also includes some awesome coverage of the more powerful McLarens, including the McLaren P1.

Sam is not pleased when he discovers that Paul Wallace (Supercars of London) has rented a BMW M3 to drive down to Las Vegas for SEMA 2016. Although Sam admits that the M3 is both very quick and pleasing to the eye, convincing him to admit any deep positive sentiment for the car is an uphill battle. For Paul, however, the M3 is a winner.
Sam shows up at the airport in a stunning Lamborghini Huracan Spyder to pick up his mate, Paul, from Supercars of London in style!
Paul cares not that there’s no space for his bag — he gladly uses it to protect his clothes from drool as he enjoys his first rays of California sun coupled with some restless Italian horses.
Sam drives from San Diego to the Grand Canyon in the company of three beautiful young women (“Modball Girls”) who help him review his orange Dodge Charger Scat Pack.
Sam flies from Los Angeles, California to Seattle, Washington to explore the City of Goodwill and some of its highlight destinations in a striking, orange Lamborghini Huracan. His first stop? You guessed it: Starbucks! But this time, not just any Starbucks. Sam hits up the original of the coffee empire at the famous Pike’s Peak Farmers’ Market! Sam makes the most of his day in Seattle with the Huracan. He hits up Beecher’s Mac and Cheese shop, tests the Lambo’s sport suspension on a cobbled street, tests the limits of his fear of heights up the Space Needle, and visits a romantic waterfall (surrounded by great driving roads).
Sam crashes, but in a good way. Following up on word of a secret Lamborghini Aventador meetup in Orange County, Sam finds himself in an epic situation!
Sam turns down driving a Lamborghini Huracan because he got a more enticing offer: spending the day behind the wheel of a Ferrari F12berlinetta.

Exclusive: Best Road for a 2016 Aston Martin VanquishView Post
TrackWorthy and Sam from SeenThroughGlass take a magnificent Aston Martin Vanquish to a remote road in the California canyons to film some content with YouTube star Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire. In addition to capturing Sam’s first impressions with the Vanquish, we capture some of what goes into making the epic content that ends up live online!
Exclusive: Behind the Scenes With an Aston Martin Vanquish and SeenThroughGlassView Post
The Corvette Z06. The quintessential American super car. Supermodel looks and top marks for crowd appeal. Superb handling. A sublime soundtrack that reverberates its quad exhaust so violently that it threatens avalanches and rock-slides when driving near mountains. A 6.2L V8 engine that blasts the beast from 0-60 mph (0-100 kph) in 3.1 second.
Who could possibly turn all of this down?
Sam hops into a beautiful Corvette Z06 convertible, first to meet Matt Farah of the Smoking Tire, and then to zip down to Palm Springs for some rest. And zip he didn’t. Even with all of the Z06’s horses, a tolerable 1.5 hour drive became a torturous 4 hour crawl. Thank you L.A. rush hour…
Sam shares some of what he has learned about the Cadillac CTS-V over the week that he’s had it.

Exclusive: SeenThroughGlass – U.S. versus U.K. DrivingView Post
Meet Sam’s carbon-clad, astonishingly-quick ride for the next two weeks: the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V. Don’t let its size, in-car WiFi or copious alcantara mislead you — this 640 b.h.p. monster is seriously track-worthy. Over the coming weeks, she’ll star in several exclusive TrackWorthy videos, and she’ll gallop up and down nearly the full length of the Golden State!
Sam describes the Corvette Z06 as “America’s Supercar,” and most enthusiasts will agree. And then there’s Damian Gryzelko’s green satin monster. With his modifications, a car that was already at the upward threshold of controllable power goes mental. Sam has an absolute blast tearing through the California mountain roads, shattering nearby windows with every rev, and shifting through this puppy’s gears. But does this Chevy deserves mention in the same sentence with a Ferrari 488?
Sam reviews his go-to car for the next seven weeks, shares his honest reactions to its drive and “useability” while giving us a small taste of LA’s magnificent scenery. He also nearly melts in SoCal’s scorching mid-September heat. Good thing the top has a “closed” position too.
