Car YouTuber Manny Khoshbin has owned some of the most exotic supercars in the world, including the Porsche Carrera GT which he recently sold. Now, he’s explained why it was the right time to get rid.

In February 2020, Khoshbin revealed the insane cost of owning his fleet of supercars, costing him hundreds of thousands of dollars each year – not including the actual cost of the cars, which can exceed $1 million.

He also revealed that there are three supercars he planned on getting from the Geneva Motor Show which total around $7m, but has actually sold his Porsche Carrera GT, which many would consider a dream car.

Khoshbin has had his Porsche Carrera GT for around seven years.

Khoshbin explained in his March 26 upload that due to the current crisis affecting the entire world, there is somewhat of a recession and, obviously, people are less interested in buying supercars.

For that reason, Manny said, he decided to sell some of his less-exclusive cars so that he wouldn’t lose too much value on them during the panic – and that includes his Porsche.

He said that it was simply the right place and the right time to finally let go of the car he had owned for seven years, explaining that if he had sold it two weeks later, he would have got around $100-150,000 less than what he sold it for at the start of March.

As Manny said, he doubled his money on that and “you never go broke making a profit,” which more than justifies why it was the perfect time to get rid of the Carrera GT – which is especially helpful considering how many cars he already has on order.

Khoshbin then explained that there’s going to be a big crash in the supercar market, and he might be tempted to pick up one or two for the right price since they’ll be cheaper than usual.

By Manny’s explanation, this definitely seems to have been the right decision, especially if it meant an extra $100k or more in the bank. He even hinted that he might buy it back if the price drops enough – which would be the ultimate power move.

Will Need for Speed Hot Pursuit be available in 4k?

Since the game has been in existence for ten years since its original release, players can expect plenty of upgraded graphics to take full advantage of the latest hardware.

Sadly, it seems that the new Hot Pursuit game won’t be optimized specifically for next-gen consoles. That doesn’t mean that it won’t look great though. Fully-overhauled graphics, new reflection technology, better textures, and updated particle effects will all feature as part of the remaster.

Despite not being optimized for next-gen technology, players can still have the option of playing in 4K, depending on their platform of choice.

NFS HP Remaster 3Some players will be able to enjoy the remastered game in 4K, but it is platform-dependent.

Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch players will not have access to 4K, but will instead enjoy the game at 30fps in 1080p HD.

Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro players will have the option to run in 4K though, being able to choose between either a 1080p 60fps ‘performance’ mode or a 4K, 30fps ‘fidelity’ mode.

PC players can also get in on the 4K action, with the ability to play in 4K resolution up to a maximum of 60fps. This frame rate has been locked to ensure there is an even playing field in multiplayer, especially when taking advantage of the new cross-platform capabilities.

Does Need for Speed Hot Pursuit support cross-platform gaming?

One of the biggest new features for the remastered Hot Pursuit is the inclusion of cross-platform capability. This means for the first time ever, Hot Pursuit players will be able to challenge their friends regardless of their platform.

Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Nintendo Switch players can all compete head-to-head in multiplayer races and challenges, bringing together the Need For Speed Hot Pursuit community like never before.

NFS Hot Pursuit PorschePrevious DLC such as the ‘Porsche Unleashed’ pack will be included with the base game.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit DLC packs

For the first time ever, the game will come shipped with all the DLC readily available for players to enjoy.

Featuring every pack that was made for the original game, it gives all players a bonus six hours of gameplay, along with a whole host of new cars. Included are the Porsche and Lamborghini Unleashed car packs, Armed & Dangerous DLC, and more.
