The Porsche 911 Turbo S Is Stupid Fast, And That's Good

Before the Porsche 918 Spyder was the mind-bogglingly quick car in the lineup, there was the Porsche 911 Turbo. But even before the 991, 997 and 996 became relatively civilized performance cars, the Turbo was a lunatic and proud of it. » 3/31/14 8:00pm 3/31/14 8:00pm

Let Porsche Slowly, Carefully Explain Active Aerodynamics To You

Though the Porsche 911 kinda, sorta, maybe looks like its original progenitor (okay it looks exactly the same), it doesn't function exactly the same.

This Porsche may be the most detailed Lego car ever

Remember Zach the Legomaniac? He was a rank Lego slacker compared to the guy who built this unreal Lego Porsche 911 Turbo Cabrio. The details are OCDifying: The steering even turns 2.6 rotations lock-to-lock, just like a real 911. Amazing. » 7/08/11 4:30pm 7/08/11 4:30pm

Honey, The Porsche Is On Fire

What catches your eye here, aside from the flambe'd New Jersey Porsche 911 Turbo, is the slovenly business-type on the phone. ("Man, I don't know what happened. Maybe the hooker's cigarette fell between the seats?") [MyJerseyCentral] » 6/24/10 9:30am 6/24/10 9:30am
