Stating that all Porsches are logical evolutions, and by merely talking about their latest in logicmobiles they were getting all goosebumpy, the affable yet precise Germans at the LA Auto Show rolled out the latest from Stuttgart. Porsche also showcased a less evolved example of Porsche racing history by putting a 908/3 on a pedestal. While the 908/3 kicked out around 300-500 hp in the 70's depending on race trim, the new-to-North America GT3 belts out 415 hp. That's 115 street-legal hp per liter of naturally aspirated displacement, kids. While driving a vintage 908/3 on the street would certainly be fun, spinning it ass-first through the plate glass window of the local Starbucks would likely land your ass in the hoosegow. The new 911 Targa 4S is pretty sweet too. More fast logic in the gallery.

DISCUSSION

I've always respected the 911 line, partly because they've explored the same general design through to icon status, partly because it's simply beautiful to behold in every generation, and not so partly because it's a sheer machine to be reckoned with. I can likewise appreciate the Boxster/Cayman to an extent, also a worthy machine, but still a 'baby' 911 as it were. However, I feel somewhat revolted by that SUC, er- SUV thing. And from what I've seen of the upcoming Panamera, I'm beginning to think that perhaps Porsche is more than a little retarded in the imagination/styling dept, and we just never noticed it before....
