New-generation 911 arrives with vintage-inspired looks and high-tech features

The 2020 Porsche 911 is the eighth-generation of the company’s iconic sports car. It was unveiled in late 2018 as the 992, a replacement for the 991 generation. Just like its predecessor, the 2020 Porsche 911 is a mix of old an new. While it rides on new underpinnings and features state-of-the-art technology, its design harks back to previous generations, including the original 911. The new sports car brings a few innovations to the market, but its most notable feature remains the fact that it’s the first 911 to not have a naturally aspirated engine.

The 911 is one of the longest-running and most successful sports car nameplates in the world that has been redefining the rear-engined formula since 1964. Its origins can be traced back to the original VW Beetle. Over 58 years, the 911 has seen over seven generations, each perfecting the rear-engined formula, and now in its eighth generation, the 992-generation 911 is better than ever.

It sounds aggressive and sporty!

Porsche will unveil the new 911 GT3 RS before the end of 2022, although we don’t have an official launch date just yet. However, a prototype of the future RS model was caught testing around the Nurburgring free of camouflage.

Porsche 911 HLS Is A Weird And Futuristic Car Forgotten By Time

Porsche 911 HLS Is A Weird And Futuristic Car Forgotten By Time

Is this the weirdest Porsche 911 you have ever seen? The 196 Porsche 911 HLS is a one-off with a canopy cockpit

During the 1960s and 1970s, Porsche was experimenting with the 911 platform. At that time, the people at Porsche were yet to realize what an icon the rear-engine sports car would become, and decided to experiment with a sportier version that featured a one-piece canopy. The only issue was that Porsche did not really want to bother making the car. As a result, Porsche sent a 911 to the Technical University in Aachen and asked the bright minds there to have a go at it. They obliged, and one of the weirdest, one-off Porsche models was born.

Rendering: This Widebody Porsche 911 Turbo From The 1980s Has Had A Serious Makeover

From a design standpoint, it is definitely a “Widowmaker”

Manufactured between 1975 and 1989, the 930 Turbo was the first Porsche to inherit a turbocharged flat-six engine. And Porsche made only 400 units of this masterpiece of a car in 1975, after the FIA homologation. Nevertheless, the 935 Turbo, based on the 930, was a massive success in motorsports as it won the 1979 Le Mans’ 24-hour endurance run, Daytona, Sebring, and the 621-mile Nürburgring. So when we came across these renderings of the “widowmaker,” we were instantly impressed. Moreover, these renderings show how a retro Porsche could bring a more futuristic approach to the design of the 911, and for that, we thank Alexander Hemoglobin.

Porsche is apparently already working on a facelift for the 911 GT3

It’s been a little over a year since we’ve seen the new 911 GT3 and it seems that a facelift version is just around the corner. While all eyes are focused on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS that is supposed to be unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, our spy photographers caught the Porsche 992.2 GT3 out for a first testing session around Nurburgring. Of course, these are just some early prototypes, which means the official debut is not going to happen until later in 2023.

The Porsche 911 996 From "Gone In 60 Seconds" Goes On Sale

This Porsche 911 stunt car from Gone in 60 Seconds hides a dirty secret, as it poses as a much younger version of itself

Car enthusiasts likely remember the movie “Gone in 60 Seconds”. While the original movie was from the 1970s, the remake from 2000 featured some impressive vehicles, more familiar to the younger audience. Among them was a Porsche 911 "996" Carrera, which was actually, the first car “boosted” in the movie. Now, that very car is for sale, but there’s more to this “996” that meets the eye, as it pretends to be a much newer car than it actually is.

Porsche is hard at work on the more track-focused Porsche 911 GT3 RS (992)

With the “regular” 911 (992) GT3 out and official, all eyes are now headed towards the GT3 RS. As expected, the more hardcore version of the already hardcore GT3 will feature more of everything - except for the weight, of which it will have less. The most important thing is that the latest most track-focused normally-aspirated 911 is underway, and here’s what we can expect.

Updated 6-21-2022: The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been spied one last time prior to its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Check out the spy shots below!

Tracing the genesis of race-bred 911 designed for the road

Ferdinand Karl Piech, the ex-VW group CEO and the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, is an icon who turned Volkswagen into the automotive giant that owns a multitude of prestigious brands. As he famously stated "All I ever wanted to do was build cars" and his early days at Porsche proved he was pretty damn good at it. One of the best examples to prove the same is the 1967 911R - the lightest 911 ever built!

Porsche offered its first open top model designed specifically for America back in 1952. It was a 356 Roadster and only 16 units were offered. 40 years later, the idea was revived with the launch of the 964 America Roadster. After another 30 years, Porsche brought back the idea and announced the 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet America. This time Porsche will build a total of 115 units and each one starts out at $184,920.

One of the finest examples of the 911 has to be the 993 generation Carrera. The 1995 911 was a breakthrough for its handling prowess, increased performance, and styling improvements. It was also the very last generation of 911 to be sold with an air-cooled engine. A modified 1995 911 Carrera by Rauh-Welt Begriff, a Japanese Porsche tuner, is up for grabs, and there’s a few things that are quite interesting about it.

This Porsche 911 RS America May Have Travelled the World More than You

This is just one reason this 911 is especially unique.

Classic Porsches have always been a hot commodity among car enthusiasts, rarer and high-performance models have seen their prices nearly double, if not more, in recent years. This is partly thanks to Magnus Walker, the Porsche tycoon, and social media extraordinaire with a collection including literalyl dozens of Porsches.

Even without any direct connection to Walker, old Porsches fetch wild sums at auction, and another extremely unique 911 has just popped up for sale on Bring a Trailer, with plenty of money being thrown at it.

Manthey’s Performance Kit Makes the Porsche 911 GT3 one of the Top 10 Fastest Production Cars on the Nürburgring

Manthey’s Performance Kit improves the Porsche 911 GT3’s lap time by more than 4 seconds!

When Manthey Racing modifies a Porsche car it does it with one purpose in mind: to improve the car’s time around the 13-mile Nürburgring-Nordschleife track. It did it with the Porsche 911 GT2 RS - a car that after the changes broke the record and became the fastest road-legal production car around Nürburgring with a lap time of 6:43:30. Now, the same treatment was applied to the Porsche 911 GT3, and while the sports car broke no record, the changes still considerably improved its lap time.

Watch a BMW M5 CS Fight It Out With the 997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

Watch a BMW M5 CS Fight It Out With the 997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

10 years ago, the Porsche would stand a chance, but can it keep up with a modern BMW?

The folks from Carwow have brought an exciting drag race between two unique cars from different generations. On the left, we have a 10-year old 997.2-gen Porsche 911 Turbo S,. Next to that, a BMW M5 CS is in its current generation for the 2022 model year. They are “bonkers-hardcore-performance-thingy,” as Mat Watson wants to call them. But there are quite some differences between the two, since the M5 CS is a family sedan and the 911 Turbo S is a sports car. Also, on paper, the BMW has all the power to school the Porsche down the quarter-mile, but can the 911 Turbo S from 2012 really keep up? Let’s dive in.

This Porsche 930 turned RUF Cabriolet is one of only a handful that were actually made, and a bidding war could push it into the $500,000 range

The 1985 RUF BTR II Cabriolet needs no introduction, as it was a hell of a sports car with a ton of power and excellent handling behavior. It won the world’s fastest cars contest by clocking 186.2 mph as the top speed in 1984, which was insane. So here we have an example from the 1985 model year, and it is looking for a new home. There’s a good chance that it may go beyond the $500,000 mark before the digital hammer drops, but is it really worth it?

Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS: Celebrating 50 Years of the Duck Tail Spoiler

50 years ago, Porsche gave us the "Ducktail rear spoiler, after putting it on one of the greatest Porsche models ever made - the 911 Carrera 2.7 RS

The Porsche 911 has had plenty of epic iterations over the years, but very few of those can match the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS. This performance variant of the 911 was not only a homologation special but also the fastest German automobile of its time with a top speed of 152 mph (245 km/h). More importantly, the development of the car, which started back in 1972, gave birth to one of the most iconic design elements of the Porsche 911, known as the “Ducktail” spoiler. In 2022, we celebrate 50 years of the birth of this motorsport-inspired feature.

Compared: 911R vs 911 GT3 Touring - Looking Beyond What Meets the Eye

Compared: 911R vs 911 GT3 Touring - Looking Beyond What Meets the Eye

Comparing two of the most analog 911s of the 21st century to see what makes each of them so special

Jason Camisa beautifully articulated the fact that before the 911 R, VW’s typically German mentality dominated the cars that came out of Stuttgart. As a result, they were getting faster around tracks and quicker to 60 mph, all while losing the soul and essence that one desires from a sportscar like the 911. The regular 911s weren’t designed by engineers or purists anymore but by the accountants and board members who solely cared about sales figures. This is why the 911 R was such a big kick in the rear for that lot when it was met with unparalleled demand. This was a similar story for the 991.1 Speedster and every special Porsche with a stick shift and naturally aspirated engine.

It pays tribute to the legendary 911 ST race car from the 1970s

Back in the 1970s, the racing world was very competitive - maybe a little bit more than it is today. With strong competition coming from makers like Ford or BMW, Porsche really had to offer something better than everything else. That’s how the Porsche 911 ST was born. The new race car was built for just one year: 1970 to 1971, and there were only 24 units built. The ST entered various races from Daytona, Targa Florio, and Nürburgring, and even won the GT class at Le Mans. Now, 52 years later, Porsche will pay tribute to the iconic 911 ST and its success with a special edition. It is based on the current generation 911 but will carry the ST name.

Hoonigan has built some insane stuff, but the most extreme builds have to be the ones done with Ken Block. You are probably familiar with the 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn, and the more recent Audi S1 Hoonitron, which is an obvious throwback to the original S1 Quattro from the 1980s. While the latter was designed and built in Ingolstadt, Hoonigan has decided to one-up Ken’s current ride, by building an unholy Pikes Peak creation based on a 1970s Porsche 911.

Anyway, it seems that Porsche took the 911 Dakar out for some more testing, and this time, in a more appropriate environment: the Nürburgring race track.

Electric Porsche 911 – The Secret Lies in Solid State Batteries

Electric Porsche 911 – The Secret Lies in Solid State Batteries

Thanks to the success of the Taycan, Porsche has been forced to rethink its electrification strategy

Talk about an electric Porsche 911 has been circulating for the better part of a decade, and back in late 2017, Porsche’s CEO, Oliver Blume, straight up told us that it wouldn’t happen in the next 10 years. In 2020, Frank-Steffen Walliser – the head of Porsche’s sports car line – said that the 911 would be the brand’s last car to go electric. The 992-gen 911 has since been ruled out to feature any form of electrification, which was backed up by the fact that Porsche was struggling to electrify the 911 without ruining its iconic nature. Now, however, it looks like Porsche might be onto something, and we could still see an electrified 911 before the end of this decade.

The Porsche 911’s Race Against A Dodge Challenger Hellcat Is Nothing But A Glorified Squash!

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS went up against a Dodge Challenger Hellcat and brutally destroyed it!

Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ staged yet another drag and roll race, but this time, with two of the most intimidating cars to grace the drag strip – the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody. Both these cars are intimidating in their own ways, but this is one of those rare times where they’ve crossed paths and have come face-to-face. While it may have been an exciting exercise, to begin with, the race was nothing more than a glorified squash. The Dodge had its moments, but it had no chance of winning any race. But sometimes such squashes are exciting, right?

The Nürburgring test season has started once again and Porsche took its latest creation, the 911 Hybrid, out on the ring for some play.

A second prototype is testing in Sweden at the same time.

The Porsche 911 Hybrid Is Coming into Focus as New Details Emerge

The Porsche 911 Hybrid Is Coming into Focus as New Details Emerge

It’s all about performance, baby, and you won’t even have to plug it in

The concept of an electrified Porsche 911 goes back at least half a decade, but things have changed a lot since then. As an example, back in 2018, we were told that adding any type of electrification to the 911 wouldn’t happen anytime soon. Of course, part of the problem with electrifying the 911 is packaging it all together without ruining everything that the 911 is. The good news is that Porsche has managed to sort some things out and, while the 911 still won’t go full-on electric anytime soon, the hybrid 911 is coming faster than you think, and now we have some preliminary details.

A Widebody Porsche 996 Slant Nose Makes For An Epic Homage To The Porsche 935

A Widebody Porsche 996 Slant Nose Makes For An Epic Homage To The Porsche 935

A one-off 935 Flachbau homage, based on a Porsche 996 Carrera, is taking shape and it already looks like a million bucks

It seems the Porsche 996’s rise in desirability has made it a go-to platform for exciting builds. We recently talked about an epic collaboration between Porsche Club of America and Porsche Classic, which spawned the Porsche 996 Classic Club Coupe. From Crucible Coachworks, Pennsylvania comes another epic 996 project. The slant nose was a distinct option for classic 911s and this 996 makes full use of the design, along with a 935-inspired body kit.

A Free-Breathing Porsche 911 Carrera Isn't in Your Future

A Free-Breathing Porsche 911 Carrera Isn’t in Your Future

Yeah, Porsche does have another naturally aspirated flat-six, but it’s not designed for the 911, nor will Porsche try to make it work

Porsche dropped the naturally aspirated engine from the 911 lineup, with the exception of the GT3 models, which means even the base 911 Carrera is force-fed as much air as possible. Back in early February 2022, we spotted the very first prototype of the facelifted 2023 911 Carrera doing some cold-weather testing. Just a few days after that, a second prototype was spotted with some interesting changes that hinted the naturally aspirated flat-six would be making a comeback. With the 718 Cayman and Boxster GTS range being powered by a naturally aspirated flat-six, the rumors began to swirl out of control as it would, actually make sense. After all, the 394-horsepower, 4.0-liter mill definitely emits a nice soundtrack. Now we know that the 911 Carrera won’t be going back to its free-breathing roots, and the reason is a bit surprising.
