The next-generation 992 Porsche 911 is coming, and to keep people excited, Porsche is showing off pictures of some of the torture testing now underway before the car’s European launch early next year. Here’s a look at what Germany’s most legendary sports car has to go through before hitting dealerships.
Nearly seventeen years after being destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the WTC Cortlandt subway station has finally opened to the public.
Some poor, poor valet in Sydney, Australia somehow managed to stuff a client’s Porsche 911 Carrera under the ass-end of a parked Subaru Crosstrek, creating a lovely mound of boxer-engine goodness.
Singer Vehicle Design, the California company that restores and “reimagines” older Porsche 911s to where they’re some of the most desirable vehicles ever cooled by air, just released images of its latest work. And the “Mulholland” car is the wildest one yet.
The Hill Country Rallye is an annual gathering for aircooled Porsches on the twisty roads of central Texas, and this year’s event brought out 130 of the best cars on the planet. Even with one of the most coveted cars on the planet, the siren song of a gravel parking lot must be answered.
If you spend all of your days agonizing over which 964-generation Porsche 911 to buy, RM Sotheby’s “Exclusively Porsche” collection heading to Amelia Island just gave you an easy answer. The 964 is good in all its forms, so you should buy all of them.
SEMA cars don’t usually do it for me as they tend to be more show than go, but Kelly-Moss Road and Race built a ridiculous 911 that’s meant to go everywhere. Words cannot express how much I want to hoon a 911 through the dirt, and the car that won SEMA’s “Best Off-Road Vehicle” is extremely relevant to my interests.
You’ve worked hard your whole life, or you made your money the American way, by inheriting most of it. You like speed and deserve nice things. But the idea of a new Porsche 911 bores you, and buying a used one is for plebes—no matter how good it is. You need something better, more special. So you turn your eyes to …
Why buy a Bugatti Veyron when you can have a fancy Beetle with green stripes and half the power for the same price? Just when you thought the 911 R pricing reached its most ridiculous point, a dealer down under has one listed for 1.19 million AUS (aprox. $920,000 USD)
Taking risks in life can sometimes lead to great things. If you took those risks and they made you rich enough to buy a Porsche 911 R, congratulations. I’m just not sure the risk of drifting that 911 R on a snowy mountain road is worth it, though.
Only 76 Porsche 911 Turbo Flatnoses were ever made for 1994. It was an option so rare on this 964-generation 911 that Porsche themselves didn’t acknowledge it existed until 2004. I’ll tell you exactly why: not only did it require a $20,000 deposit to reserve one, but it’s downright creepy looking with the headlamps…
Some of you may not be aware of this, but Porsche has apparently made a model called the 911 R. It is a car that some would say is quite adequate if you like that kind of thing. Top Gear’s Matt LeBlanc shares his thoughts on the new “fancy Beetle.”
When Aston Martin dropped the manual from its V12 Vantage in 2014 leaving only a seven-speed automated manual, the world became a darker, sadder place. Then Porsche showed us an automatic-only GT3 RS, and all hope was lost, sending car enthusiasts around the world searching for therapists.
On Sept. 11, 2001, an employee working the ticket counter at Dulles International Airport checked two passengers onto their flight. He didn’t know those two men would soon hijack the flight and crash it into the Pentagon, and he certainly didn’t know how much guilt he would carry for years to come.
Can you tell what this melted blob of steel and despair used to be? There’s a hint in the title. And maybe you can guess from the wheels.
Here is a video of the godly Porsche 911 R singing its heavenly song at the hands of tester Christian Gebhardt. He canes the thing good and well on the Hockenheim “little” course and the up the Col de Nivolet alpine pass. Then, for good measure, gives us the viewing pleasure of a 318 kmh (198 mph) acceleration run.
I don’t care that all of Singer’s reworked 911s all look the same. I would buy one in a heartbeat if I got some massive windfall of money. And for the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Singer has a new addition called the “Newcastle” that is both gorgeous and wicked fast.
Porsche trademarked the ‘960' name back in September, and we’re just now finding out about it. The new trademark could mean the automaker is working on a new car. Or not. But if it is, what could the ‘Porsche 960' be?
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.
