That shape. It’s what your grandfather dreamed about. It’s what your father dreamed about. It’s what you dream about. What do you need to know before you buy a Porsche 911? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
Believe it or not, there was a time not that long ago when modifying a Porsche for any reason was considered a travesty. Keep in mind that this is at a time when most Porsches, 911s and 356s alike, were worth a fraction of what they are today. One of the men who changed the Porsche community’s perception of the…
Remember the 1967 Porsche 911R? It’s was a stripped-down, lightweight 911 with racing in its name, and rumor has it Porsche is celebrating the model’s 50th Anniversary by selling a limited run of throwback-styled 911s - and they’re already sold out.
A lot of vehicles get much more hate than they deserve. I’m not talking about the PT Cruisers and Corvairs of the world, although I have opinions regarding them as well. No, today I’m talking about the 996 generation of the Porsche 911. Porsche, as a company, tends to not change its ways without dutiful consideration.…
Okay, we get it. Cars are fun, the suburbs are boring. But these two pinheads are driving recklessly, almost ruining two beautiful cars, and not even really looking that cool doing it:
Many lessons were learned the hard way on 9/11, but one of the biggest was just how unprepared our defenses were for an internal attack. While the Federal Aviation Administration did an incredible job landing all planes, the problems with communications and decision making and lack of flexibility in procedures when it…
No more naturally aspirated engines for the ordinary Porsche 911.
Porsche offers its facelifted 911 as sacrifice to skygods, with pictures of the funny mishap and details on what to expect from the 2016 model over on LeftLaneNews.
Beautiful, just, beautiful. That’s the only way I can describe this Aventurine Green 993 Turbo. It was by far my favorite car hanging out at Period Correct last Saturday, a title not easily won. In addition to this final edition of air cooled wonderfulness, there were a number of other interesting vehicles on hand, or…
Just over 350 never-before-seen images of Vice President Dick Cheney on 9/11 have been released by the National Archives. They span the entire day, from him seeing the twin towers burning on a tiny TV in his office, to leaving to “an undisclosed location” (aka Camp David) that evening.
We’ve covered Magnus Walker’s insane treatments of the original Porsche 911 many times. And every time we think he’s outdone himself, he comes right back and outdoes himself again. And this month where did he show up with his 277 numbered 911? My backyard.
What to even say about this car. It’s silver? It’s loud? It’s like a Singer, but wider? It’s like a Rauh-Welt, but with a better spoiler?
Remember when the Golf used to be called the Rabbit? Well, meet the Killer VW Rabbit of Caerbannog: twin-turbo, all-wheel-drive, 740hp, rip-your-head-clean-off insanity in the body of a 6th gen Golf. Run away! Run away! Somebody fetch me the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch!
This weekend SkyPixel Media released this video of Anthony Taylor’s Porsche record-setting half mile. From the video’s description:
Very appropriate since I'm sitting here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, this late 1980s Ruf Automobile modified RUF CTR Porsche 911 Yellowbird is hanging out in front of some long cacti. Most likely desert kept, I would love to wind this through the gulches and atop the mesas of the New Mexican landscape.
Suppose you are in the market for a million dollar supercar, but are underwhelmed at the current selections with their hybrid wizardry and electronic gizmos. You want something collectible, but allows you the opportunity to cheat death every time you clip an apex. You need a 1996 Porsche 993 GT2.
TrueDelta's Michael Karesh breaks down risks associated with dealing with the Porsche 996 naturally aspirated, flat-6 engine. He looks at long term reliability studies and has determined that it is not of matter of if this motor will fail, but when. He also provides a nice alternative.
It's my first blog entry. Never had a blog before. But I've always admired those who can write, and make it sound interesting. My blog won't be that good for sure. At least not because of my writing. But I love cars, and I love photography, so you're more likely to see here more images, then words - just like in comic…
