16 Porsche Songs That Name Drop The Brand

Nazz – When I get my plane

This first one is one of the times when Porsche kind of gets slighted. Nazz talks about buying a plane and being more excited to fly the plane than driving their Porsche.

However, the emphasis on Porsche in the song highlights the class and supremity of owning a Porsche, and the implication is that flying a plane is only slightly better than driving a Porsche, which is definitely not a slight.

Fresh Prince – Parents just don’t understand

If you’re familiar with Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, it should not surprise you that Will is singing about growing up and testing boundaries.

In this song, he talks about his parents going out of town and leaving the keys to their brand-new Porsche behind. How could he not give it a test drive?

Janis Joplin – Mercedes Benz

Janis is also kind of slighting Porsches but, at the same time, kind of builds them up. She says that all of her friends drive Porsches, so she wants to be bought a Merc.

However, she does so to be different, not because Mercs are better. The fact she purchased a Porsche tells us that everyone else involved prioritized Porsche over Mercedes.

T-Rex – Calling all destroyers

The only reference to Porsche in this song is the line “driving in your Porsche coupe” the song isn’t about Porsche, and it is only a throwaway reference. Still cool though.

Joan Armatrading – Shape Of A Pony

Joan is a British artist that sang about the fact that he’d die for a chrome Porsche. Would you want a chrome Porsche? Probably not. But you have to credit his commitment.

Dru – Getting It In

Dru likes to talk about sex and uses Porsche as a metaphor for just that. Not surprising right? We are talking about some damn sexy cars. The line goes, “Oooh baby we can make this happen now. Like a Porsche 911”.

Rick Ross – 911

Unsurprisingly, Rick Ross is singing about driving around in his Porsche 911. A car which he was kind of famous for. At least, he was well known to be an avid Porsche lover.

Young Jeezy – Air Force

Young Jeezy has a few songs about Porsches, but we will only mention two. In the first, he talks about being old school cruising around in his Chevy and then swapping over to his drop-top Porsche.

Young Jeezy – All White Everything

Again we have Young Jeezy. In all white everything, he is mostly talking about his collection of all-white cars, including his all-white Porsche.

Frank Ocean – Come On World, You Can’t Go!

Frank Ocean sings about his unsteady emotional times and grief that he’s been through. The Porsche is mentioned in the middle of the song, where he sings about driving in his Porsche and letting the cops go by.

Lil Mosey – Grippin

Lil Mosey raps about his success and wealth, including his Porsche, which he brags about driving. This is another example of artists using Porsche as a sign of wealth and status.

Dave East – Prosper

This song by Dave is another rap song using Porsche as a sign of prosperity and power.

DJ Khaled – We Takin’ Over

This song by DJ Khaled loves telling the world about his wealth, as do all of the rappers he features on his tracks.

This one is no exception when one of the lines rapped goes on about “You could see me in that Porsche GT”. Rhyming it with the next verse almost as perfectly as a Carrera GT sounds.

This one is a personal favorite, as I remember when this came out 16 years ago, I couldn’t stop listening to it, and failed miserably at trying to rap as fast as the pros. But one part I distinctly remember the the

Freddie Gibbs – Gat Damn

Would you be shocked if I told you this song was about Freddie Gibbs he name drops the Porsche Spyder? The lyrics go like this “Porsche Spyder look like a spaceship”. I have to agree, as an owner of a Spyder, it does look like it’s out of this world.

Kid Cudi – Porsche Topless

Kid Cudi raps about how cool it is to pull up in a convertible Porsche, who can blame him, it is pretty damn cool.

Diddy & PartyNextDoor – Sex In The Porsche

The title of this one says it all. While it’s the most recent song on the list, Diddy has some interesting visuals and a somewhat catchy beat.
