It’s good to stay active.
In “things I have a hard time believing because Porsche fans would riot,” a Porsche engineer told Edmunds that it’s hard to make a business case for offering the next 911 with a manual transmission. I don’t know, man. See this vat of tar and that bucket of feathers over there? There’s your business case.
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.
One solitary, forlorn wheel was left on its own on a big, scary racetrack during the 12 Hours of Sebring. The heartless jamokes at Alex Job Racing didn’t secure the wheel properly onto the No. 22 Porsche. Left to its own devices, the wheel lashed out against the sick, sad world which had rejected it, interrupting the…
The No. 3 Corvette of Jan Magnussen and No. 911 Porsche 911 of Kévin Estre were battling for the GTLM class lead at Sebring when they took each other out in the eighth hour of the race. The 911 went nose-forward into the tire wall just past the pit straight, but Magnussen was able to fire the ‘Vette back up and limp…
In our slider tool below, you see two almost identical Grand Prix White 1989 Porsche 911 Speedsters. One sold for $209,000, the other for $363,000 at the same auction. The only major difference between these rare 1980s wonders? Jerry Seinfeld.
The dream car purveyors at Singer Vehicle Design are back with not one but two new bespoke Singer-ified 911s, and one of them is the classiest thing I’ve ever seen with the name “Florida” attached to it.
Once you see the face in the Porsche 911 GT3-R, it cannot be unseen. It’s particularly noticeable on Michael Schein’s No. 16 Pirelli World Challenge car, as the entire “face” is one big expanse of red. It’s one big :D smiley in car form. This is the happiest race car known to mankind.
The Porsche giveth, and the Porsche taketh away. In this case it’s reversed; the new 911 GT3 RS is a deeply amazing track-ready machine, but enthusiasts balked at its lack of a true manual gearbox. So here’s Porsche to giveth what we asked-eth for: a GT3 RS without the zany bodywork and a proper stick-shift.
When your dying uncle doesn’t want his greedy ex-wife to sell his Porsche 930 Turbo for scrap after he can’t protect it anymore, you can end up with one of the very few original Porsche Turbos in Australia. “MAD 930" is a fitting plate.
Rather, it shows the charming lack of evolution.
What could make a wide-hipped, big-winged classic Porsche 911 even better? Situating it within a bright red outline of itself. It’s like a magical halo of Bruce.
In the car world today, nothing is more desirable than a vintage Porsche 911. And this owner knows it.
Here’s Patrick Simon driving the Rothmans Porsche 911 SCRS at the snowy Grand-Prix circuit of the Nürburgring. The lucky bastard.
The No. 73 Park Place Motorsports Porsche 911 somehow got routed through the infield access roads to reach its own garage for service. Patrick Lindsey had to be push-started before heading in for repairs, at which point he battled several fans’ cars for position.
I guess the best thing about a Porsche 996 RSR is that with a little effort, you can turn one into the most hardcore road legal GT3 RS ever. With a six-speed manual, naturally.
Two cars that are ostensibly the same -yet very very divergent to the discerning enthusiast. Two diecast manufacturers that aim to faithfully recreate these two legends-in-their-own-rights, and in some ways they succeed in accomplishing this is very different way. On this Saturday, shall we compare these two 1/18s?…
Porsche 911s are more commonly seen in sportscar racing series today, so it may come as a surprise that the first 911 Porsche ever raced participated in the Rallye Monte-Carlo—an event that is now part of the grueling World Rally Championship! Yes, Porsche 911s even look fantastic with a spotlight for a hat.
