WAS IT A PORSCHE? A DATSUN? WHAT KIND OF CAR DID LETTY DRIVE IN FAST & FURIOUS 6?

If you had the chance to watch Fast & Furious 6 this weekend, you were probably wondering what kind of ride Letty was driving when she made her return in the beginning of the film during the chase scene where Dom's 1969 Dodge Daytona was catching up to Owen Shaw's Flip Car. Was it an old school Porsche?  How about an old school Z?  Well after the recent unveiling of the Fast & Furious 6 vehicles at Universal Studios, it was revealed that Letty's car is a 1973 Jensen Interceptor.

The GT sporting class car was hand built in the United Kingdom by Jensen Motors from 1966-1976. Only 6,408 of them were produced into the market.  Let's check out the content of what was inside Letty's Jensen build:

The car that Dom drove was not a Plymouth Daytona...there is no such car. It was either a Dodge Daytona, or a Plymouth Superbird. Look it up.

Thanks for the correction Jason!  It was indeed a Dodge Daytona.
