Car YouTuber Tom ‘TGE TV’ Exton has explained why his twin brother James is planning to sell his Porsche 911 Turbo S, despite admitting that he loves the car and thinks he will regret doing so.

For many, the idea of owning a Porsche 911 enters the territory of “dream cars,” with the Turbo S edition available as a sportier and faster version of the base sports car. James’ version of the car is a rare version too, complete with the full aero kit and a full carbon interior and a special set of side skirts that he claims he has “never seen on another 911.”

Despite him admitting that it is “the best spec available,” and that he doesn’t really want to, he plans on selling the vehicle and picking up something new, explaining his reasoning while appearing in a video with his twin brother.

After giving viewers a guided tour of the vehicle, TGE admitted it was time to get down to the real reason he was there, finding out “why on earth” his brother is selling his Porsche 911 Turbo S, even after repeatedly claiming that he thinks whatever car he purchases next will disappoint him.

“I know it sounds ridiculous, but I don’t even know the reason,” James explained. “Other than the fact I’ve had the car for over a year, we do a fancy trip to Monaco where we drive over the mountains, and I fancy doing it in something different this year. There’s not a realistic chance of having [the 911 Turbo S] and an additional car, because I don’t use this much as is.”

“I like change, I fancy a change. I know that sounds ridiculous. It might be the case that I think ‘actually, I’m going mad,’ but as you’ve done, when you like a car you can return to it. I can still experience the Turbo S again if I want it. ”

In terms of what’s next for James, he isn’t currently sure what he’ll pick up but thinks he won’t lose any money on selling his Porsche considering he’s looked after it so well.

TGE’s brother did hint at the possibility of picking up two cars with the money he makes back from selling it, but didn’t reveal any models that he has his eye on.

Musicians have one of the most intensive lifestyles in the world, touring the globe to promote their work to millions of people. Thankfully, hard work brings rewards, which rappers often spend on incredible car collections.

Luxury items such as exotic cars are seen as a status symbol. They’re a fantastic way to not only ‘flex’ wealth, but also make a statement wherever they go.

Successful rappers such as Drake and Travis Scott love nothing more than showing off their success with ultra-expensive cars, but they’re far from the only ones. Below, we’ve rounded up five of the most expensive cars ever to be owned by rap artists for your enjoyment.

Travis Scott has one of the most incredible car collections of any rapper. Featuring Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Bugattis, one of the rarest (and most expensive) cars is his Maybach G650 Landaulet.

With only 99 built, the G650 Landaulet is based upon the Mercedes G Wagon. Featuring a custom extended body with convertible rear section, the G650 puts out over 600hp from its V12 engine.

3. Post Malone’s McLaren Senna XP – $1.7 million

Post Malone is known for his keen love of custom and exotic cars. With his fleet ranging from a custom 1992 Ford Explorer (which he named a song after) to Rolls-Royces, the jewel in this rapper’s collection is undoubtedly his McLaren Senna.

His Senna is no ordinary hypercar, however, with Post having one of the ultra-rare prototypes from McLaren themselves. Dubbed the Senna XP, Master of Monaco, this one-off prototype is worth significantly more than a standard McLaren Senna.
