A story about a young man who strolled into his local Porsche dealership wanting to check out an expensive sports car has been making the rounds. The treatment he received was rude and unprofessional, but it could have likely been avoided with a simple phone call.
The secondhand market for Porsche’s specialty GT cars is insane. We’ve reported on 911 Rs selling for three or four times their original sticker price. Porsche’s not taking this lying down, and so the automaker says it will start getting tough on car flippers to ensure their sports cars are sold to people that will…
Before the advanced Porsche 918 and the insane Carrera GT, there was the Porsche GT1 racecar. Only 25 road cars of the famous racer were produced, but this example at Goodwood is actually a converted street legal racecar.
Now that Porsche has switched over to turbo-four motors for the 718/Cayman, this left the purists wondering what will become of the next Cayman GT4. According to some clues dropped by Porsche GT development boss, a naturally aspirated flat-six and a three-pedal setup is here to stay.
Adi is in a rather envious position: he can finally get his dream car, a Porsche 911. The only problem is even though all the 911s look pretty much the same, and there are so many variations and generations that it’s hard to figure out which is the best one. What Porsche should he buy?
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.
