Type 7 – the beautiful Instagram channel powered by Porsche and led by Ted Gushue – has made a name for itself by providing lifestyle and design coverage geared towards Porsche owners and enthusiasts. And after expanding into the world of coffee table books with two slick volumes, they're now stretching the brand into film.

Their inaugural short, titled Shakedown, comes from director George Howson and features a leadfoot wheelman taking a vintage Porsche 911 rally car going through the English countryside on a rip-roaring route. It's paired with the track "VSOD (Velvet Sky of Dreams)" by Hudson Mohawke and Tiga, adding to the cinematic flair and visual fun.

No other Type 7 films have been announced just yet but we'd be thrilled if Gushue and co. channeled BMW Films with a narrative piece next. We've got a few Porsche-filled screenplays lying around here somewhere, after all....
