Episode Summary

EDIT

Richard, James and Jeremy are set a challenge to buy a working Porsche for a maximum of £1,500. Richard buys a 924 (the one with the van engine) for £750, James a 944 for £900 and Jeremy - predictably a 928S for £1,500. They are then set a series of challenges to see who has bought the best car.

Jeremy also drives the new Golf GTI and described it as a sensation (even though it weighs the same as "South Africa").
A Mini is featured in Restoration Rip-Off and Billy Baxter, a blind man, tries to set a faster time in the Liana than Richard Whiteley and Terry Wogan.

Cliff Richard is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • While Jeremy took over seven hours ("and six breakdowns") just to get onto the Motorway, a 'normal' drive from London to the Brighton sea front [about 55 miles] should, take about 90 minutes (assuming no major traffic problems).

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Now I'm guessing that you've got kind of monogrammed electric gates. Am I right? Cause mine break all the time.


        Cliff Richard: Don't buy cheap gates!

      • Jeremy Clarkson: [Jeremy's lonely heart ad for the Porsche Challenge] Porsche 928 driver - (that's the V8 one) tall, slim hips, likes books with speedboats on the cover. Would like to meet someone for friendship - maybe more.

      • Richard Hammond: [Richard's lonely heart ad for the Porsche Challenge] Porsche 924 owner, good-looking, mild-mannered, snappy dresser, 5' 11"...

      • James May: [James' lonely heart ad for the Porsche Challenge] 41 year-old man with sensitive hair, drives Porsche 944 Lux, seeks brewery heiress or similar. Must have liberal attitude to motorcycle components in the bath.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: [referring to the Golf GTI] This car does everything you could possibly want from a car. I mean, you can take the children to school comfortably and safely and practically. And then after you've dropped them off, you can drive home like you've sat on a wasp.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Stig's Lap Times:

        Golf GTI: 1.33.7

        Cliff Richard has sold over 200 million records... none of them to me.
