A documentary set in Ontario, Canada, focused on the local sports car, supercar and exotic car clubs and community. Despite its northern climate, Toronto is the 1# location worldwide for McLaren sales and second only to Beverly Hills for Porsche and Ferrari sales.
Local Award Winning Filmmaker and Porsche enthusiast James Hergott examines this phenomenon and looks into the unique personalities within the culture, as well as the various clubs and passion behind this culture.
The city will serve as a character itself. The title is a play on words, serving as both the type of engine in the popular Porsche 911 and the 6ix as a reference to the city of Toronto, as made popular by musical artist Drake.
This is the last generation of sports car enthusiasts, before electric cars take over.
The film will also show aspects such as rallies, meet ups, drives, racing and the individuals and passion behind it.

James Hergott's lifelong passion for storytelling, combined with his vast experience as a filmmaker, writer, director, producer, creative consultant and bodybuilder, culminated into the Radical Body Transformations documentary series and fitness/weight-loss movement. Seasons 1 and 2 have been released via Google Play, Apple TV and Amazon Prime in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand and is now filming its third season as the RBT fitness movement gains new worldwide participants and momentum each day.
His first feature film, All That I Need, debuted at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2005 and secured a limited theatrical release with Regal Entertainment Group. The film gained critical acclaim, and symbolized the moment in which Hergott was recognized as a 'filmmaker to watch'. The San Antonio Express News commended Hergott for 'showcasing gumption and creative sleight of hand, sure to take him further as a director and writer’.
Off the back of his Cannes success, from 2005 to 2007 Hergott served as president of publicly traded Beverly Hills entertainment production and distribution company, Imperia Entertainment. Under James' management, Imperia produced a number of multi-million dollar films and television entities including Say It In Russian, a film starring Academy Award winner Faye Dunaway with a budget of $5 million. In
2008, Hergott wrote, directed and produced the MMA reality show MMA Worldwide which was distributed nationally on Mark Cuban's HDNET (now AXS TV). Gaining an insight into the world of MMA inspired James to learn more, and to share social awareness of the sport. This brought him to Iraq, in which he produced a documentary about the first ever MMA Fights in Iraq, titled A Fight For The Troops. This documentary film was extremely successful, and James was awarded a Greywolf Medal by the US Army for his contribution to sharing valuable and engaging content that had largely been dismissed by mainstream media.
In 2010 he headed back to Canada where he wrote and executive produced a documentary feature film focused on UFC Champion, George St.Pierre, entitled, The Striking Truth, which was distributed globally.
Due to his success in film, James sought to combine his work with his passion for fitness. After winning national awards in bodybuilding for the Canadian Physique Alliance (CPA) and competing in the IFBB World Qualifiers, in 2013 James was given the opportunity to work as Business Director and Creative Consultant for the multi-award winning documentary Generation Iron. The film had become the number one sports/fitness film in the world to that point.
In 2015, James independently founded Radical Body Transformations, an inspiring documentary series. It features people from all walks of life who are on a weight loss and fitness journey to better their lives both mentally and physically and was distributed by Amazon Prime in more than 3 continents. In 2016 he produced SWOLE distributed by VICE media. Around this time he also went on Dragon's Den and secured a deal with a top investor.
In 2019, Hergott joined forces with New York real estate mogul Anthony Lolli, after Lolli had tremendous success with his own radical body transformation. Hergott and Lolli produced the full length feature Documentary, From Fat Lolli to 6 Pack Lolli. The movie quickly became the top fitness film on Amazon Prime and won film festival acclaim including the LA Documentary Film Fest for most Inspirational Documentary and 2021 Best Documentary in the Katra Film Series.
Hergott has interviewed some of the world's most elusive and influential figures including Dr. Jordan B Peterson and has appeared in global media coverage from Fox News to Costco Magazine. He promotes an annual stage show alongside the IFBB Toronto Pro SuperShow that allows people to showcase their transformations every summer and is filming a movie about the sports car community in the GTA entitled "Flat 6ix" to be released in 2023.
A GTA native, Hergott is a member of Porsche True North and Saturn Drives and is long time Porsche owner who has owned six 911’s.
