2021 Porsche 993 Speedster by Gunther Werks
Gunther Werks’ remastered 993-generation Porsche 911 now has a drop-top sibling. The new model, called the 993 Speedster Remastered, is the latest bespoke creation from the California-based tuning firm. It’s more powerful than its coupe counterpart, and with the roof get lopped off, it also looks like a true speedster. Only 25 units of the 993 Speedster Remastered will be built. There’s no word yet on pricing, but with the coupe version fetching $565,000, expect the speedster to carry a price that’s closer to $600,000.
You know what’s amazing? The sound of a naturally-aspirated, four-liter, six cylinder boxer engine that can rev up to 9,000 rpm and makes a whopping 502 horsepower. And it’s under the hood of the all-new, 2022 Porsche 911 GT3. And that’s what we’re here to talk about today – this amazing engine and how Porsche managed to make yet another non-hybrid, non-electric supercar in a world where everybody else seems to think electrons are the way of the future.
Oh, and did I mention that it has a manual gearbox and it lapped the Nurburgring in under seven minutes?
Can A Tuned, 490-HP BMW M240i Take On the Porsche 911CS and BMW M3?
Sometimes, the best drag races are those that have some form of handicap. Take this race hosted by YouTube channel Track Day, for example. It’s a three-car throw down involving an F80-generation BMW M3 Competition, a 992-generation Porsche 911 Carrera S, and a BMW M240i. The latter is the obvious underdog in this race, but this isn’t your stock M240i that comes into the race with significant modifications, none more important than an engine upgrade that helps the turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine produce more output than both the M3 Competition and the 911 Carrera S. The scales tip differently now, do they? Does the modified M240i have what it takes to beat the M3 Competition and the 911 Carrera S? Let’s find out.
The Evolution of the Porsche 911 Turbo - A Video Packed With Nostalgia
More than 50 years old as of 2020, the Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars ever built. But not just for the fact that it has been produced continuously since 1963 with pretty much the same design cues, it’s also because the modern version is as quick as a full-fledged supercar in Turbo trim. Porsche takes great pride in this version of the 911 and set up an emotional video in which seven different generations of the Turbo are being drag raced at the same time.

Porsche cars are known for being some of the most reliable high-performance machines ever built. That wasn’t always the case, however, as some models, especially in their earlier versions, were anything but reliable, especially if some of the known (by some) problems are left unattended. And although it can be a nightmare to work on a broken engine, it can be surprisingly relaxing to watch someone else dismantling one and then putting it back together.

2021 Porsche 911 Dakar by Delta4x4
The Porsche 911 has been a capable performer for decades. Moreover, pound for pound, very few cars can match its on-road performance.

There are more than a few specialists who can turn your 911 into an off-road adventure machine and the German tuner Delta4X4 has the latest offering on the market.
A New Porsche 911 Is Coming But What Is It?
Remember when the folks over a Bring a Trailer teased an upcoming Porsche GT model? It happened back in September 2020, when the website started a bidding auction for the mysterious car, through which the will had the opportunity to secure a build slot. The auction has since been suspended for unknown reasons, but the ad featured a concealed car that looked a lot like a 911 with some sort of spoiler at the rear. Come February and Porsche released a statement that this "new member of the 911 GT family" will be unveiled on February 26. Is this the new-generation 911 GT3 or some sort of limited-edition model?

Porsche and TAG Heuer Collaborate on New $6,000 Timepiece
Porsche and TAG Heuer have collaborated in the past in various capacities, but the two brands have never formalized that partnership until now. Porsche and TAG Heuer are now official strategic partners, and to consummate the marriage, the two are launching the delightful — and expensive — TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph.

2022 Porsche 911 Safari
The 2022 Porsche 911 Safari is a rumored, upcoming variant of the company’s iconic sports car. Far from confirmed for production, the 911 Safari has been spotted testing on public roads a few times since late 2020, a sign that Porsche is considering some sort of 911 with a raised suspension. The Safari name isn’t official either, it’s just based on a nickname given to a handful of rally-spec cars that Porsche built in the past. The German company also created a 911 Vision Safari concept in 2012, but it kept it hidden from us until November 2020, when it unveiled numerous never-before-seen show cars and designs. Is Porsche actually working on a production 911 Safari. If so, what will it bring to the table? Let’s try and answer these questions in the speculative review below.
