Motorweek is a show that is one of the first automotive television series that presents car reviews, features, and comparisons nationwide through PBS, Discovery Network, and Velocity and Internationally on the American Forces Network.

I had the exclusive privilege to be a guest interior tester for a 2018 Porsche 911 S Cabriolet on episode 45 of season 37 of Motorweek. This episode premiered nationally and internationally  on July 14, 2018 at 5:00 p.m Eastern time.  Click  to watch the episode for free here.

Behind the scenes moments.

For this guest starring role, I had to dress the part as a young woman who would actually own this car. The day before, I got my nails done and bought a Vince Camuto Spring dress and Italian made necklace and bracelet from Nordstroms. I didn’t have time to get my hair done so I crossed fingers that the Moroccan argan cream in my hair gave off a socialite vibe.

Here’s the moment when I said “Oh Snap” when the hood went down. I was too amazed and blown by how awesome this porsche 911 was.

Although my segment was only 50 seconds long, my shoot took between 1-2 hours.  The Motorweek team wanted to make sure the weather had a bit of a downcast to highlight this beautiful vehicle.

Much of what I did was manuevering the interior interface, playing around with the wheel, and adjusting the seat to my liking (I am as short as a leprechaun and I was able to adjust the seat well).

The longer I sat in the car, the more this felt like this could really be my car. I had a wonderful time working with the Motorweek production team and jamming out  acapella to 80’s rock jams. That was a definite magical moment in my life.

Here I am adjusting the seat to my leprechaun legs.

If you want to get in touch with nature, you can easily drive down back roads and take the scenic route due to the 2018 cabriolet body style of the car. I legit couldn’t stop grinning when I was in the car.  I really enjoyed the leather seats and the first class feeling of the interior. I love this car so much!

The launch control of the car is so great, you can leap of any line. The 2018 Porsche 911 costs around $204, 050, has 580 horsepower, and in just 2.9 seconds you can go 60 MPH.

What made this guest appearance even more memorable was that I get to use the same catchphrase Biz Markie used in the song “Just a Friend”. I only had one line, and that line was, “Oh Snap!”

I thought it was so awesome my catchphrase was promoted on Motorweek’s Instagram and Twitter account.

I hope I made Biz Markie proud…
