Popular car YouTuber Thomas George, who runs the TGE TV channel, has given fans a first-look at the newest set of wheels added to his collection. That’s right, he’s finally a Porsche Carrera GT owner. 

The internet personality finds a way of juggling both content creation and investment banking on a weekly basis, pulling in thousands of videos each time he uploads to his channel – which boasts an impressive 196,000 subscribers at the time of writing.

Thomas has put out a number of videos in the past featuring impressive vehicles, whether it be a 2020 Mercedes AMG GT, a McClaren P1, or something a little less flashy like a Range Rover.

He’s been wanting a Porsche Carrera GT for a long time and finally he’s bought one.

However, flashy was definitely the look he was going for in his March 17 video, after revealing he had finally went out and bought himself a brand-spanking Porsche Carrera GT – showing it off at the Good Wood Motor Circuit, which was apparently his for the day.

According to Autotrader, this type of car can be priced anywhere between $700,000 to $1 million, depending on the seller and condition.

It’s a car he’s wanted for a long time, too, revealing it had been a 15-year wait to get to this point. Now that he could finally get his hands on it, the YouTuber revealed something interesting about the design of the one he chose.

He said: “This is actually a very rare spec. The color on this car is jet black. It is a UK car in jet black, one of only two examples – I believe,” before joking that people in the comments may prove him wrong.

(For mobile readers, the related segment begins at 1:01)

“The majority of black GT Carreras you see are actually a basalt black, which is a metallic fleck. It’s almost a dark gray in sunlight. This is a solid black, a very very rare color.”

George then decided to take viewers all around the car, giving everybody watching a closer look at different features. He added: “Around the back of the car then, all very standard stuff as this car is completely stock, as a Carrera GT – I think – should be,” before revealing one thing he did decide to customize.

The content creator has added the TGE TV registration plate to the new vehicle, which had previously featured on his Lamborghini Aventador. To round things off, he gave a big shoutout to Charles and Dean for helping fund the hypercar, which he says is particularly difficult to do in the current market as many come with a sketchy history.

What the future holds for TGE TV and whether or not he will try to top this latest addition with something even more impressive in the future remains to be seen. Until then, we’re sure he’ll have a hell of a time driving his new Porsche.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
