A Perfect Saturday Morning @ Period Correct w/ video!


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… »8/03/15 5:35pm8/03/15 5:35pm

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. »7/25/15 4:14pm7/25/15 4:14pm

Your Ridiculously Awesome RUF CTR Yellowbird Wallpaper Is Here 

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. »3/28/15 6:31pm3/28/15 6:31pm

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 10:40am10/17/14 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 1:21pm10/09/14 1:21pm

USS New York: The Navy's Floating & Fighting Memorial To 9/11

From Foxtrot Alpha: She packs over seven tons of reclaimed steel from the World Trade Center, an on-board memorial to 9/11 and her motto sends shivers down your spine: "Strength forged through sacrifice.

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 11:39am5/23/14 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 4:41pm5/07/14 4:41pm
