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.
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.
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.
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)
Frank Honsowetz of Ed Pink Racing Engines doesn’t even consider himself a “Porsche guy,” and specializes in building drag racing motors. But he is the only man that Singer Vehicle Design trusts to assemble their drool-worthy flat-six motors.
Porsche already improved the Panamera from a fast and capable but awkwardly styled four-door into a stunning sedan. Of course, every sedan is automatically made better if it becomes a wagon, and the Panamera Sport Turismo “shooting brake” (wagon) is coming soon.
Many of us have Porsche dreams, but suffer from the problem of having Hyundai budgets. But what if we rolled the dice on a Craigslist special? Will a cheap Porsche still leave you broke? One man in the UK tallied up his costs over a two-year period.
There are two ways to think about the four-cylinder Macan: either as the least expensive way to get a Porsche, or a really overpriced, lifted hot hatchback. It turns out, a lot of Macan buyers don’t care about the number of pistons under the hood.
The Porsche 911 has only one problem, if you want to travel with passengers in the back seat they can’t have legs. Someone decided to “improve” the 911's cockpit by moving the steering wheel to the middle, like a McLaren F1. This creation can be yours for $53.491.
Dieselgate put a downer on anyone who needed an oil-burning Porsche to tow their Porsche to a race track. With a fix in the works for the Volkswagen Group’s 3.0-liter TDI V6 motor, Porsche will soon be able to sell you a “new” diesel Cayenne—but only by making them used cars with a hefty discount.
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.”
Since Mr.Regular decided to be the most hated man on Oppo, here a lovely vehicle to go against him. 1987 Porsche 944 “Race/Rally Car”
Having a rough week? I’ve got just the cure. Take a break from your tasks, turn up the volume, and bask in the glory of some of Porsche’s finest vintage and modern machines drive the breathtaking mountain passes in the Swiss and Italian Alps.
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.
Just when you thought the rare Porsche 911 market couldn’t get any more ridiculous, someone has listed a 2016 911 R on eBay with a reserve price of over one million dollars. Or you can buy it now for the low, low price of $1.25 million.
Please note that AMA could abruptly end at any moment if kids wake up. :)
So the Powerball has reached $800 million. I figure what the hell...and bout a few tickets. I know I’m not going to win, but I call it “two dollars to day dream” and I drive home fantasizing about all the awesome cars I would buy if I did. Singer would probably be the first on my list.
