Just in time for the 911 Turbo’s 40th anniversary, Porsche has decided to give its loyal customers and fans a special present for this important milestone by unveiling the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S models which will both serve as the range-topping performance models in the 911 model family.
The 2013 Shanghai Auto Show is not until later this month, but Porsche has given its loyal fans an early present by unveiling the 2014 Porsche Panamera which bestows Porsche’s popular four door with several updates for the new model year.
An almost audible gasp from the automotive world was heard when Porsche announced – unapologetically – that the newly revealed 991 GT3 will come equipped with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) only. It will be the first time ever in the GT3’s history that a manual gearbox will not be offered. Apart from the change of the Mezger engine to the new, completely unrelated direct fuel injection (DFI) engine of the lesser 911 models, Porsche’s decision on PDK has got to be the single most talked about controversy surrounding the 991 GT3.
Porsche has taken the wraps off of the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3, which is the fifth iteration of this race-inspired model and will once again serve as the range topping model for all naturally aspirated 911 variants when it arrives on dealer lots later this year.
Porsche has revealed the first 911 race car based on the current 991 platform. Known officially as the 2013 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, it was unveiled during a special “Night Of Champions” celebratory event in Weissach Germany. Long heralded as one of the most successful line of race cars in motorsports, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup first arrived on the scene in 1998 and has sold over 2,395 units during its production run. With the arrival of the 2013 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, Porsche aims to redefine what the GT3 Cup is all about while continuing the models tradition of success at the same time.
The 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show is only a month away, but Porsche has decided to give its fans an early present by taking the wraps off the latest and fastest addition to the Cayenne family the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.
Following a slew of tests on the famed Nurburgring race track in Nuremberg Germany, Porsche revealed Wednesday that a 918 prototype was able to lap all 13 miles of the iconic track in a swift 7 minutes 14 seconds. This new lap time is not only a significant improvement over the car’s prior lap time of 7 minutes 22 seconds (which was achieved during prior Nurburgring testing back in July), but it also crushes the time set by Porsche’s old Carrera GT by a whopping 18 seconds. The new lap time shows just how much progress the 918 has made during its development period.
With the 2012 Paris Motor Show only a month away, Porsche has decided to officially unveil the latest iteration of the 2013 Porsche 911 the all wheel drive equipped Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S.
Following recent spy photographs of the upcoming 918 Spyder hybrid, Porsche decided to not only reveal official photographs of the 918 Spyder prototype, but also key details that help shed light on Porsche’s latest hyper car effort.
EBay, Barrett Jackson, and Hemmings all abound with classic and veteran sports cars for sale and auction year-round, but why do so many people want to buy one – or even more than one?
What makes an otherwise-sane person sink exorbitant amounts of money into an obsolete piece of machinery?
I bought my first classic sports car in the 90’s – a decrepit and pitiful 1978 MG Midget. That was just the beginning; I was bitten as they say. Shortly after the Midget came home, I bought a 1977 MGB, then a 1973 MGB, a 1967 MGB GT, BMWs, Porsches, Triumphs and on and on. Let’s take a look at the reasons why folks might consider buying a classic sports car.
