On Sept. 12, 2001, Mike and the Mad Dog host Mike Francesa drove to his local gas station to fill up the tank before coming into work. The station was owned by an “Arabic family,” and he said he could tell that the man working was understandably nervous given the previous day’s events, so he “gave him a slap on the…
Why buy a Bugatti Veyron when you can have a fancy Beetle with green stripes and half the power for the same price? Just when you thought the 911 R pricing reached its most ridiculous point, a dealer down under has one listed for 1.19 million AUS (aprox. $920,000 USD)
Taking risks in life can sometimes lead to great things. If you took those risks and they made you rich enough to buy a Porsche 911 R, congratulations. I’m just not sure the risk of drifting that 911 R on a snowy mountain road is worth it, though.
Only 76 Porsche 911 Turbo Flatnoses were ever made for 1994. It was an option so rare on this 964-generation 911 that Porsche themselves didn’t acknowledge it existed until 2004. I’ll tell you exactly why: not only did it require a $20,000 deposit to reserve one, but it’s downright creepy looking with the headlamps…
Some of you may not be aware of this, but Porsche has apparently made a model called the 911 R. It is a car that some would say is quite adequate if you like that kind of thing. Top Gear’s Matt LeBlanc shares his thoughts on the new “fancy Beetle.”
When Aston Martin dropped the manual from its V12 Vantage in 2014 leaving only a seven-speed automated manual, the world became a darker, sadder place. Then Porsche showed us an automatic-only GT3 RS, and all hope was lost, sending car enthusiasts around the world searching for therapists.
On Sept. 11, 2001, an employee working the ticket counter at Dulles International Airport checked two passengers onto their flight. He didn’t know those two men would soon hijack the flight and crash it into the Pentagon, and he certainly didn’t know how much guilt he would carry for years to come.
Can you tell what this melted blob of steel and despair used to be? There’s a hint in the title. And maybe you can guess from the wheels.
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…
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…
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.
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.…
