No music. No British car reviewer screaming in your ear about steering feel. No commentary whatsoever. It’s just the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, flat out.
No more naturally aspirated engines for the ordinary Porsche 911.
You can only drive a 911 GT3 RS properly on a public road if you manage to wake up earlier than the people who start bloviating on the radio at 6 AM. But Evo’s latest proves that it’s worth doing for the sound alone.
Very effective would be one way to sum it up. We called the Turbo S terrifyingly fast, Evo thinks it’s a force of nature. It also might just be the best all-rounder money can buy.
To celebrate the first six decades of the largest Porsche club in the world and to add almost $20 grand to the GTS' base price, Porsche North America put a sexy ducktail on the car and gave it a very nice color too. Meet the GTS Club Coupe.
While the Porsche 991 GTS was just launched a week ago, the company is pretty much finished already with the 991.2 Turbo S facelift as well. And they push those prototypes very hard indeed.
What looks like an average Porsche 991 Carrera at first has a surprise in its back seat that looks like some kind of electrical engine or battery pack. Is this the 18th 911 'hybrid' variant we've been waiting for?
Porsche came out with the new 991 GT3 Cup car over the weekend. With flared fenders, more power, and a stripped interior it's impossible not to love, but at $234,273 (not including tax) is it the best car a gentleman racer can buy?
Really, he didn't, because he's dead. True story: Champion Motorsport of Pompano Beach, Florida does an annual art-car collabo for the mega artsy confab, Art Basel Miami Beach. This year the shop teamed with "neo-pop" artist Romero Britto on a new Porsche 911 Cabriolet (991). Whimsy. So much whimsy.
The 997's seven years are now officially over. The new Porsche 911 — 991 to Jalopnik readers — is very much like all 911's over the past 48 years. Only a little better at everything.
Specs from the 2012 Porsche 911 either show a slight improvement for the new generation (codenamed 991) or mark the end times. Changes include new transmissions, longer wheelbase, launch control and and a more Panameraesque interior. Oh, and an optional hybrid drivetrain.
