All Porsche 911s Will Be Turbos Soon, Says Cray Cray Magazine Report

The original Porsche 911 Turbo was one of the primary cars that pushed turbocharging into the modern era, establishing forced induction as a way to add crazy performance to a modest engine. But times are changing, and turbos have a lot more to do with downsizing and efficiency now, so the rest of the 911 range may get… » 10/17/14 10:40am 10/17/14 10:40am

2014 Porsche 911 GT3 - Classic Car Club Review

The Porsche GT3 has long been regarded as a driver's car. While the results are always staggering, the recipe for GT3 pie is very simple – take a normal 911, ratchet up the cc's and revs, strip out the weight while exaggerating the width and wheelbase, give it cup-car stiff suspension, strap on a huge wing and use… » 10/09/14 1:21pm 10/09/14 1:21pm

Video: Porsche 991 Turbo S vs. Dodge Viper GTS

The SRT Dodge Viper hasn't been doing so well recently, despite its nearly complete ground-up redesign. It's fast, brash, light, and raw, and is seemingly what everyone on Jalopnik wants: a supercar with a manual gearbox and the minimum number of nannies required by US law. The Porsche 991 Turbo S is the exact… » 5/23/14 11:39am 5/23/14 11:39am

Porsche Won't Make A Flat-Four After All Because They Hate Joy

I don't ask for much in life. A good job, happy family, and all of my idiosyncratic automotive desires made real. That doesn't seem too much to ask, right? For a while, it seemed to work, as Porsche was working on a new flat-four engine. Well, that may not be true. And there's no Santa, either, because he's dead. » 5/07/14 4:41pm 5/07/14 4:41pm

7-Speeds Of Manual Goodness, Then What?

We talk often about the "death of the manual", but is it really dead? Or is it just momentarily dormant as the 6-speed slowly peters out and the 7-speed ramps up? I wish. More than likely, these +1 gear'd anomalies will remain just that; anomalies. Beautiful looking, amazing handling, anomalies. » 3/01/14 8:25pm 3/01/14 8:25pm

The Best Porsche 911s Ever Come From This Magical Workshop

We've all got favorite cars. One of those cars exists in our minds as a hypothetical über-favorite car, one built from all the best traits of every year our favorite car was made.

The Porsche 911 Is 50 Years Of Pure Evolution

This year marks the 50th birthday of the most iconic sports car of them all, the Porsche 911. Now you can go the Jeremy Clarkson way and start bitching about how the whole idea of putting the engine in the rear was stupid, or start an argument about how it is only a tuned up Volkswagen, but no matter what you think,… » 2/08/13 3:00pm 2/08/13 3:00pm
