Here is a video of the godly Porsche 911 R singing its heavenly song at the hands of tester Christian Gebhardt. He canes the thing good and well on the Hockenheim “little” course and the up the Col de Nivolet alpine pass. Then, for good measure, gives us the viewing pleasure of a 318 kmh (198 mph) acceleration run.
I don’t care that all of Singer’s reworked 911s all look the same. I would buy one in a heartbeat if I got some massive windfall of money. And for the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Singer has a new addition called the “Newcastle” that is both gorgeous and wicked fast.
Porsche trademarked the ‘960' name back in September, and we’re just now finding out about it. The new trademark could mean the automaker is working on a new car. Or not. But if it is, what could the ‘Porsche 960' be?
When the brains behind Luftgekühlt—a celebration of all things Porsche—decided to build a car to auction off for charity, it was like they tapped into that really crunchy part of my brain that just wants to see 911s go sideways and splash through the mud. I need it. I need it so much.
In order to allay any fears that the 2017 Porsche 911 with its new fangled turbocharger is pissing on decades of marvelous atmospheric flat-six tailpipe sounds, I fastened my GoPro to the rear bumper and let’er rip.
The modern Porsche 911 still retains the basic layout of its ancestors, a direct line you could trace back to the 1930s if you really wanted. But it’s gotten wildly complex and sophisticated, for better and for worse. Porsche is stripping away some of that and the result is the very appealing, lean, raw 2017 Porsche…
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!
