Watch the Gunther Werks "Remastered 993" Porsche 911 Lap Laguna Seca in 1:30.99
1998 was a big year for the Porsche 911. That’s when the German company introduced the 996. The first major redesigned since the 911 came to life in the 1960s, the 996 also marked the end of the air-cooled era, as the popular engine was replaced by a water-cooled flat-six. The switch was controversial and many purists considered it to be the end of the true 911. If you like air-cooled power, you can still find older 911s on the market. But what if you also want the modern technology that did not exist back in the 1990s? Well, Gunther Werks will give you the best of both worlds through its remastered 993. And you can check out how fast and dynamic it is on this footage from Laguna Seca.
This 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car Has a Very Ironic Camo
Porsche is about to launch the first race car based on the 992-generation 911. It’s called the 911 GT3 Cup and will be raced in the company’s already iconic and popular one-make series. The latest 911 GT3 Cup is still being tested, so Porsche is only showing us a camouflaged version. But while the car may appear wrapped in the usual swirly camo seen on most prototypes out there, it actually hides abstract maps of the race track on which the one-series is held.
Sports Car Supreme: Discover the Magic of The Porsche 911 2.7 Carrera RS
One of the many cars to stem from Ferdinand Piëch’s ambition of making Porsche profitable through racing achievements - aka race on Sunday, sell on Monday, the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 rose quickly to fame. Unlike the 911 R, which had a hard time making a name for itself with the public, the RS 2.7 was a hit.
This LEGO Porsche 911 RSR In the Desert is More Than a Mirage
Porsche’s partnership with LEGO isn’t exactly new and while so far it has involved the churning out of stunning brick-made cars under the Speed Champions and Technic monikers, the two brands just switched it up to a more laidback, slowed-down vibe.
Sure, you won’t see a real 911 RSR on public roads because race cars aren’t allowed there. But if you happen to know a skilled photographer like Tomek Makolski, then you’re in for a treat. One that’s not a mirage, by the way.
This Classic Porsche 911 is More Modern Than You Think
One of the most iconic sports car ever built, the Porsche 911 is an impressive 57 years old as of 2020 and went through six major redesigns. While all seven generations are revered by Porsche enthusiasts, some models don’t get as much love. The 996-gen, produced from 1997 through 2005, is one of them. Whether it’s the "fried egg" headlamps or the fact that it was the first water-cooled 911, the 996 isn’t as sought-after or as valuable as other 911s from the 1990s and 2000s. The Spanish folks over at Ludic, a Porsche shop, are among those that don’t fancy the 996 and converted a Carrera model from the era into a first-generation coupe. Weird? Yes! But also cool at the same time.

By 2024, Your Porsche 911 Might Not Run On Gasoline Anymore
Earlier in November 2020, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume revealed that the German firm is developing a new synthetic fuel as a strategy to keep its old sports cars on the road. With emission regulations becoming stricter and with most automakers now shifting toward electrification, cars with internal combustion engines may no longer be road-legal in 20 years. Porsche wants to solve this problem with a new synthetic fuel that will replace gasoline in internal combustion cars, reducing CO2 emissions and keeping them on the road longer. While this isn’t exactly news, the fact that Porsche will convert the 911 to this type of fuel in 2024 is!

You Have To Check Out This Video Review of the Porsche 993 GT1
When talking about Porsche supercars, we mostly remember the 918 Spyder, the Carrera GT, and the 959. We often forget that Porsche built an even greater supercar in the 1990s, most likely because it was extremely exclusive and it was essentially a road-legal Le Mans prototype. I’m talking about the 911 GT1, arguably the most extreme Porsche 911 ever designed. Racing enthusiast Tiff Needell just got his hands on one and put together one of the greatest driven reviews.
