I’d ask “Which one would you take?” but I already know the answer.
The inside of the Porsche 911 factory looks exactly the way I thought it would: surgically clean and meticulously orderly.
Last month, we ran a photo of a GT2 RS mule testing at the Nürburgring. Fat tires, yellow brakes, vast wing—it couldn’t have been anything else. We wondered whether or not it would have a manual gearbox to boot.
Sometimes you don’t have to have the bright-red sports car to get everyone’s attention—the calmer, more serene colors can be just as charming. The same goes for your wallpaper, if you’re into the free version of that feeling rather than the one you’d get with a $1 million car investment.
The havers of profoundly bad taste at Singer Vehicle Design create cars that others would consider “museum-worthy art,” but come on. Bespoke coachbuilders are so Jazz Age.
I try not to valet park my car. I don’t see the point of paying for something that I could easily do myself and then walk a little extra. I especially don’t see the point when it involves someone else driving and parking my car away from my beady-eyed glare. The risk of scuffs and dings is just too great. Also, I…
A few months ago, Akira Nakai-san was in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania building the latest Rauh-Welt Begriff Porsche for Porsche enthusiast, Ben Harmony. The newest addition to the fleet, known as “Prince”, took a surprising two days to finish (he typically completes builds in three) and was the first Porsche to receive…
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.
In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve had a few Porches in the realm of Jalopnik photography over the weekend. It only makes sense to end the weekend on that note, so we decided to give you all a rather subtle way to display your love of cars on your computer desktop.
Many people were not thrilled when Porsche revealed that the updated 911 Carrera would be getting some turbo action because it makes the actual 911 Turbo (capital T) less special or something. Chris Harris is among that camp, and says if you’re going to bother with the finance papers, get the actual Turbo.
The Cayman R was not a big car, but compared to a vintage 904 it was huge.
Most everyone knows that automakers buy competitors’ cars to test and take apart to see how they can make their better and faster. But when Porsche caught Honda in the act, they left a sassy little note.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
If you’re feeling the artsy—and the old-school—vibe heading into this week, it’s only right to pass it along to as many people as you can. With a tweak to your desktop, you can do that without even having to hold a conversation. (But if a passerby wants to have one, these cars are a good place to start.)
The hotly contested GTLM class—the top GT class in American endurance racing—makes its triumphant return to Lime Rock Park this afternoon. Here’s a Porsche blasting through the Connecticut woods, as it should be. Today’s race starts at 3:00 p.m. ET on Fox.
Porsche in the 1970s and 1980s was struggling to determine its future. Would it keep the beloved 911, which was getting long in the tooth? Or would it replace it with an all-new grand tourer, the 928? Fortunately for fans of the timeless 911, these front-engined coupes saved the company’s bacon.
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.
There was some concern in the 911 purist community regarding Porsche’s decision to twin-turbocharge all Carreras moving forward. You see, purists hate turbos on sports cars because of turbo lag. Here’s an explanation of what that is and what it does.
Driving on Germany’s network of speed-unrestricted roads known as the autobahn is an experience that every gearhead around the world should try at least once. However, here are a few things that no one tells you before getting into the left lane and smashing the loud pedal.
