The Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet is one of those often forgotten oddities of the automotive world. The recipe was simple: take the best, most powerful, final non-turbo iteration of the Porsche 944, and ruin it by chopping off the roof. Still, I sort of love seeing these things because they’re such rare, odd cars.
This car went up in flames a few days after this photo was taken, but let’s not think about that. Let’s think about how hot it’ll look on your desktop instead.
The same model of brand-new Porsche 911 RSR race car that has run without major issues so far this year in the United States had a major engine failure at the FIA World Endurance Championship’s 6 Hours of Silverstone, belching flames out of the engine cover that replaces its back window.

Relax, this Porsche Cayman GT4 decked out in police livery is not for pulling people over or engaging in highway chases.
We all know what happened the last time Audi and Porsche came together to make a vehicle. It was the legendary RS2 Avant and now the two automakers will again work their collective magic on a range of upcoming cars.
Like any upstanding human, you’ve been wanting a Porsche station wagon for pretty much as long as you can remember. That’s healthy. Happily, Porsche now actually has one, and even if you don’t have the large piles of money needed to own one, you can build a virtual one and pretend for a few moments before the sobbing…
In Porsche’s 911 lineup, it’s hard to argue against the Turbo S. But it’s also hard to swallow the $188,000 starting price tag, so, um, let’s just appreciate how pretty it looks for now.
Everyone knows how Hollywood legend James Dean died—young and badly, crashing his Porsche 550 Spyder on Sept. 30, 1955. More than half a century later Dean, his image and the few movies he made are far from forgotten, and the mystery of his supposedly “cursed” Porsche is as compelling as ever.
The 2017-spec Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 car was spied out in the open testing at the end of a GT car test day at Paul Ricard, reports Daily Sportscar. The car only took one or two laps according to those who saw it, but that was just enough to get a good look at one of the two contenders for the top LMP1 class in the…
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.
Engine goes where? Racer caught Porsche’s mid-engine 911 RSR chassis out in the open at Sebring, with nothing installed. Yes, it’s that car that they’ve been bizarrely secretive about despite already racing it at the Rolex 24. Check out Racer’s pics here, if you’re curious about just where everything bolts in.
DriveTribe sent Henry Catchpole to Sweden’s Below Zero Driving School, where they teach you how to drive rally-prepped air-cooled Porsche 911s on ice. Everything about the phrase “rally-prepped air-cooled Porsche 911s on ice” sounds like paradise to me. Holy crap, I need this in my life.
When Porsche confirmed that the 2018 911 GT3 will indeed come with a manual gearbox, we were all very excited about a car that most of us can’t afford. The only problem is that Porsche is going to charge you the GT3 premium for what should be the cheaper gearbox.
A mid-engined Porsche 911? Yeah, sure, it’s a possibility. Everything is. But this Porsche 911 right here is a reality, and it sure is beautiful.
Will they or won’t they have a manual transmission on the 911? What about the engine? Will the next 911 be mid-engine or no? But Porsche told an outlet “maybe” or “we’ll consider it” last month and they took it as the supreme gospel truth? Let’s face it, everybody, Porsche is the world’s biggest troll.
There was a really weird phrase in one of my German textbooks from back in high school that has stuck with me through its unintentionally-poor translation: “Germans live behind closed doors.”
Right after Porsche got our hopes up by adding a manual transmission as an option for the 2018 911 GT3, their head of GT cars brought us right back down by saying that six-speed won’t be used in the more hardcore GT3 RS. I thought you understood us, Porsche? I thought we had a thing?
Long before Singer and other outfits were reimagining classic Porsches, there was RUF. Now the standalone automaker has unveiled what looks like a restomod 911 but is actually a completely unique, all-carbon fiber car on its own (not-Porsche) platform with 700 horsepower and a top speed of 225 mph.
