Singer, the California-based company that “restores and reimagines” Porsche 911s made between 1989 to 1994, has been working with Williams Advanced Engineering (of Formula One fame), Michelin, Brembo, BBS Motorsport and others to offer new “lightweight services” for owners of classic Porsche 911s. The results are…
When Porsche started favoring its dual clutch PDK gearbox over traditional manual transmissions in its high-performance RS models, purists everywhere let loose a thin, reedy wail that reached the unanswering clouds. Honestly, though—did you people expect anything different to happen?
We love it when you readers send us your Weekend Wallpaper submissions. But you’ve been sending us too many damn BMWs lately! Listen, friend, I’m super glad you’re enjoying your M4. I like BMWs too. Even owned some. But there are more cars out there. Let’s celebrate all the good cars.
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.
Well isn’t this a nice Sunday evening surprise. I’m sitting at my computer, catching up on emails and getting ready to cook dinner, when lo and behold Porsche pops in to say “Look at this, it’s the lightest new 911 you can buy right now!” Meet the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T.
Computers will get better and take over our reality at some point, but until then, they’re good enough to virtually recreate every line, shape and texture of the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.8 in fully rendered 3D. It’s a relief knowing our virtual reality futures will still be populated by excellent cars.
I’ll go first: I don’t really like the Porsche 911.
The Porsche 911 flat-six is an iconic engine. This rear-mounted engine is the heart of probably the most talked about and praised sports car of all time. Let’s watch it get dissected!
Take the religious following of air-cooled Porsche 911s, then reduce that to the community of folks who are evangelists for the four-cylinder 912, and you’ve got a group of seriously passionate people. Like most passionate people that I’ve met, they want to bring you into the fold and show you why whatever it is they…
We could laugh at Porsche for creating a “new car” by just ripping the rear spoiler off the 911 GT3... but scheisse it looks good.
Hand-woven dashboards. Wide hips and wider tires. Explosive exhaust notes. Rebuilt flat-six engines with power to rival modern supercars. Painted any damn color you want. Unless you’ve been under a rock for years, you know Singer Vehicle Design as the company that performs exceptional work in restoring, tuning,…
It seems hard to believe today, but once, the very things that made an older Porsche 911 so desirable—the engine in the rear, the air-cooling, the noise, the raw driving experience—were once seen as liabilities. The Porsche 928 was created to fix that. It failed... or did it?
Can you believe it? Porsche has built one million 911s over a span of 54 years. That is a lot of freaking cars. And, to celebrate, it made the one-millionth 911 a special one. Here are some gorgeous photos of it cruising around Manhattan. The City that Hates Cars looks good on it.
No one wants to buy a used car only to have expensive problems pop up down the road. This is especially true if you’re dropping some serious money on a sports or luxury car with complex and costly components. The best way to avoid such problems is a pre-purchase inspection.
This is the Porsche 911 Turbo S, which starts at around $200,000 on its own. But buying a base model is for peasants, and you’re not really flaunting what you’ve got until you add a paint job that costs half of what the car did and enough options to never get the chance to use them all. That’s what cars are for,…
Top Gear’s Chris Harris stepped out of a loaner Porsche 911 R to kindly review the new 911 GT3 for us, so when he claims that the GT3 is one of the best cars on sale today, we’re just going to have to believe him.
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 …
If there’s one car that really, truly got me into cars, it has to be the Porsche 911. I have seen many very good Porsche 911s in my lifetime, but Leh Keen’s off-road-ready Safari 6 911 may just be the best 911 I’ve ever seen. Everything about this build is absolute perfection.
Considering an influential YouTube car guy was just talking about how underrated the 997 is, and the fact that I only had a grand total of two options to choose from for Weekend Wallpaper this week (so please start sending some to my email), we’re going to grace our screens with a 997 and a sunset.
