Mini/Porsche showdown a lot like 'Rocky IV'


Mini won't let up with its challenge to Porsche. First, it challenged Porsche to a race (the Cooper S against the 911 Carrera S). Porsche said no. So, Mini flew a taunting banner over Porsche's North American headquarters. That didn't get a rise out of Porsche at all. But now, the tension has reached Cold War proportions with the release of the video below—a spoof of Rocky IV, with Mini cast as Rocky and Porsche in the role of Ivan Drago. It's an amusing parody, though it could use an Apollo Creed character. Maybe Mercury? Via Jalopnik.
