Jeff Gamroth has been building Porsche 911s since he was 15 years old. His shop, Rothsport Racing, is one of the preeminent Porsche preparers in the country. This year his team took the 911 way out of its comfort zone at the NORRA Mexican 1000 Baja race. Not only did two of his 911s finish, they made it back in decent…
Once again, Jeff Zwart’s flame-spitting turbocharged Porsche 911 GT3 Cup tackled one of the most beautiful places on earth: Pikes Peak. This year, Zwart aimed for a feat only 12 drivers had ever done in the 99 years of the 12.42-mile Pikes Peak International Hill Climb: a sub-10-minute time up the mountain.
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.

Yesterday Porsche pulled back the curtain on what is arguably their latest, greatest 911, the 2014 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. It's amazing, I'm sure, but when it comes to Porsches I prefer to go old school.
Porsche will campaign a new 911 GT2 RS at Pikes Peak at the end of this month in a Porsche 911 GT2 RS under command of seven-time champ Jeff Zwart. And to prove their cars are as awesomely reliable as they are reliably awesome, he'll do it in a car he drove 1,100 miles from Porsche Motorsports HQ.
Porsche's Jeff Zwart took his Pikes Peak record-holding 911 GT3 Cup car on the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation east of San Diego. The result? Awesomeness.
Rally driver, Road & Track photographer, and Porsche freak extraordinaire Jeff Zwart drove a 911 GT3 Cup road-race car up Pikes Peak last month. Is oppo-filled, high-res Porsche dirt video proof that Zwart is The Man? Yes, yes it is.
