Weekend WallpaperPut these on your desktop to look cool and awesome.

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve had a few Porches in the realm of Jalopnik photography over the weekend. It only makes sense to end the weekend on that note, so we decided to give you all a rather subtle way to display your love of cars on your computer desktop.


This weekend’s wallpaper comes from Ryan Wilkinson and features a badge on a Porsche 916, built only as a prototype in the early 1970s. There were a total of 11 prototypes made between 1971 and 1972 with a flat-six engine from the 911S, and the car didn’t make it to production.

With that said, may your energy supply for the week ahead make it farther than the Porsche 916 did. If you have a few photos of your own that you’d like to send in for a weekend wallpaper, feel free to send an email to the address below.
