Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has decided to get rid of his Dodge Challenger for the hefty price of $150,00 US dollars.

For anyone in the market for a new car from a Super Bowl-winning quarterback, one has just become available with Wentz’s 2018 Dodge Challenger.

This isn’t just your run of the mill Challenger either as the Eagles QB has made a bunch of enhancements to it, so it’ll feel a lot more personal if anyone does decide to splash the cash and pick this up.

In fact, it might even feel a bit too personal as it has Wentz’s jersey number etched into the seats, so this will definitely appeal diehard fans the most.

Wentz’s green Challenger SRT Demon Coupe has just 3,689 miles on the odometer, so the buyer will be getting a lot of life out of it, and with a top speed of 199 miles-per-hour, it promises to be a very speedy vehicle.

While there are next to no situations in your everyday life where you’ll be able to reach that speed, just knowing it’s possible is all the rush you can get.

For those on the fence about a car this expensive, it might help to know that a portion of proceeds will be going to the Wentz AO1 Foundation, which is a religious-based charity that helps various groups of people, according to TMZ.

With Wentz’s wife now pregnant, it’s sounding like the family might have decided that this isn’t the best car to raise a family in. Considering he signed a $128 million extension to remain with the Eagles, finding a new vehicle shouldn’t be too difficult for him.

Unfortunately for him, his NFL season finished prematurely as his Eagles were eliminated by the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card round of the playoffs on January 5. In that game, Wentz went out with an injury and backup quarterback Josh McCown had to finish up.

Matt LeBlanc’s classic car collection is nothing short of extraordinary

While many were surprised to see Friends star and sitcom actor Matt LeBlanc as one of the hosts for BBC’s Top Gear for a stint, it turns out LeBlanc is in fact a massive petrolhead, and has a collection of classic cars that is the stuff of dreams.

Anyone that has watched Friends knows the scene where Matt’s character Joey pretends to own a Porsche. Well, it turns out that there’s a degree of truth in that scene — LeBlanc is a massive fan of the Porsche brand, and has a number of their cars in his fleet.

Unlike most celebrity car collections, however, Matt’s is a lot more classic-oriented than most. From early air-cooled Porsches to unusual Jeeps, he has a classic for almost any occasion, as well as a number of cutting-edge supercars for good measure.

Matt’s fastest car is his Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

Matt LeBlanc’s incredible Porsche collection

Porsche clearly hold a special place in Matt’s heart. From the air-cooled ‘widowmaker’ 930 911 Turbo to the cutting-edge 911 GT2 RS, his collection spans a number of decades and styles.

There is a noticeable bias towards the classics here, too. Prior to the 996-era of 911 launching in 1997, Porsche’s engines were mostly air-cooled, and this is where most of Matt’s collection is focused. While there are no doubt some hidden gems that are kept away from public eyes, we do know he owns the following:

  • 2012 911 Carrera GTS
  • 1988 964 (911) Carrera
  • 1987 930 (911) Turbo
  • 2014 911 Turbo S
  • 2016 911 R
  • 2017 911 GT2 RS

Despite his love for Porsche, there’s one he’d never buy: A 914. In an interview with Men’s Journal, he said “I’m not a fan of the 914, though I know there are some die-hard fans out there. I’ll get letters about that.”

As a well-known car enthusiast, Top Gear was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for LeBlanc.

Matt LeBlanc’s exotic cars

While his biggest love is Porsche, Matt also enjoys dabbling in other brands of four-wheeled transport too.

Satisfying his ‘hot hatch’ requirements is his Ford Focus RS, an all-wheel-drive hatchback complete with ‘drift’ button. He also has a classic American muscle car in the form of a De Tomaso Pantera, complete with its room-shaking V8 engine.

Good friend and previous co-host Chris Harris also revealed that Matt has bought himself a Ferrari Testarossa, which will sit nicely alongside his Pantera, and his other Ferraris — a 360 Modena and 458 Italia.

Perhaps the most unusual car in his collection is a Fiat X1/9. This diminutive, rear-engined Italian sports car must’ve struck a chord with LeBlanc, as it’s totally different from anything else in his collection.


With its mix of iconic classics and modern supercars, Matt’s collection is enviable – just don’t tell him you’re a fan of the Porsche 914, whatever you do.
