This is the Porsche 911 Turbo S, which starts at around $200,000 on its own. But buying a base model is for peasants, and you’re not really flaunting what you’ve got until you add a paint job that costs half of what the car did and enough options to never get the chance to use them all. That’s what cars are for,…
Top Gear’s Chris Harris stepped out of a loaner Porsche 911 R to kindly review the new 911 GT3 for us, so when he claims that the GT3 is one of the best cars on sale today, we’re just going to have to believe him.
You’ve worked hard your whole life, or you made your money the American way, by inheriting most of it. You like speed and deserve nice things. But the idea of a new Porsche 911 bores you, and buying a used one is for plebes—no matter how good it is. You need something better, more special. So you turn your eyes to …
If there’s one car that really, truly got me into cars, it has to be the Porsche 911. I have seen many very good Porsche 911s in my lifetime, but Leh Keen’s off-road-ready Safari 6 911 may just be the best 911 I’ve ever seen. Everything about this build is absolute perfection.
Considering an influential YouTube car guy was just talking about how underrated the 997 is, and the fact that I only had a grand total of two options to choose from for Weekend Wallpaper this week (so please start sending some to my email), we’re going to grace our screens with a 997 and a sunset.
The best gifts to the man who raised you should be thoughtful, kind, and cutting and grim reminders of dead cars they loved and held near and dear. NASCAR driver and Friend of Jalopnik Parker Kligerman gave his dad just that kind of perfect gift this past Father’s Day, with a framed chunk of the engine piece that…
Who’s up for a scavenger hunt? There’s only one thing to find, and it’s big and yellow. It’s a Porsche 911, and it’s in some parking garage near the Empire State Building. I have a hunch, if anyone can find it, it’s Jalopnik readers, because they have a history of finding yellow rear-engine cars.
I know it’s a bold claim to make in today’s era of hyper-collectible, ultra-rare 911 variants, but I would have been totally fine if Porsche had made more than only 20 of these Group B 911 SC/RSes. They look and sound awesome and I need more. Just watch this rare Porsche slide around and you’ll understand.
You know the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS? The one that’s supposed to be the most powerful 911 ever? Apparently it’s sold out, but if you ask the folks at Porsche, they won’t say. In fact, they won’t say anything. Porsche has yet to even acknowledge the new GT2 RS’ existence.
Yesterday was Father’s Day, so, Prestone, one of the leading makers of coolants, antifreeze, radiator flushing compounds, and other car-juices, put up some sentimental pro-dad content on their social media accounts. There was just one problem: the car they chose was one of the few that has no need for the products…
Ooh-aah, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The big, scary fast 911 to end all 911s. Just unofficially, for now.
The best Porsches are the ones that truly want to kill you. More power. Less weight. Exponentially less mercy. They’re the most desirable among a certain set of the Porsche faithful because they’re seen less like a car and more as a wild beast to tame. In other words, it’s about time they brought back the 911 GT2 RS.
Not at an auto show, not a special event, not at a concours: E3 is where Porsche dropped the 2018 911 GT2 RS, an absurdly ferocious-looking machine touted as the most powerful 911 ever. Why E3? Because it’s the cover car for the new Forza Motorsport 7.
Porsche-chu! No, wait. Pika-leven! Porsche-mon? Whatever you call this 1980 Porsche 911SC dressed up as everyone’s favorite pocket monster Pikachu, it rules.
So, Porsche made this car called the Porsche 911 R, right. And it was basically a 911 GT3 RS with no big silly wing and a manual transmission. There were very few of them made, and because it’s the only Porsche that purists actually want, they sold for silly amounts of money. And that was the end of that... maybe?
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…
