Videos: A look back at Top Gear with Jeremy Clarkson

Thursday, March 26, 2015

Top Gear to many of us is the premier automotive television show, but after the series’ co-host Jeremy Clarkson was fired by the BBC yesterday, the show’s future is up in the air.

Will the show's other hosts, James May and Richard Hammond, share presenting duties with a new personality, or move on as a package with Clarkson to their next automotive endeavor? It’s hard to imagine the three apart, but there was a time when Top Gear existed before the trio made it the world’s favorite car show.

To commemorate some of Top Gear's better moments, scroll down to watch a selection of Porsche reviews through the years that feature Clarkson, including a couple from the mid-1990s when the show was co-hosted by former racing driver Tiff Needell. And yes, the Carrera GT review is first because it’s this author’s personal favorite. Enjoy!
