New Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Prototype Reveals Fresh Secrets

New Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Prototype Reveals Fresh Secrets

One of those secrets is that it will be coming to the U.S, but how do we know that?

Porsche is about ready to reveal the new Cayman GT4 RS, and rumor has it that it’s going to happen on November 17 or 18. The date actually makes a lot of sense, considering those are the media days for the 2020 Los Angeles Auto Show. We’ve already seen some official photos released by Porsche when the GT4 RS was doing some testing on the Nürburgring, so these spy shots might not seem that interesting, but there’s actually more here than what meets the eye.

Porsche Carrera GT on an unrestricted stretch of the Autobahn? Yes, please

Very few cars have the enigmatic presence of a Porsche Carrera GT. The mid-engine supercar debuted in 2003 and in its four-year production cycle only 1,270 were made. Despite the car appreciating in value, there are still people out there, who have the b”lls to use the car like it was meant to. With that said, the YouTube channel AutoTopNL is giving us a short, but epic video of the Porsche Carrera GT hitting over 186 mph (300 km/h).

Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring

Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring

Singer has made the ultimate air-cooled 911. Now, they take on the Nurburgring with it

A few months ago, we talked about the Singer 911 DLS, which is a 500 horsepower, air-cooled, rear-engine, masterpiece, based on the 964-generation of the Porsche 911. We’ve been hearing about the car since 2018, but it was just a few months ago when the first customer car was finally ready. To say that the 911 DLS is the ultimate interpretation of an air-cooled 911 is a bold statement, which is why Singer decided to take it for a spin at the Nürburgring for some real testing.

This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess

This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess

The 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" is a 600+ horsepower one-off that could be yours

The first automobile was invented in 1886 and since then many great cars have emerged. But even nearly 140 years after the automobile’s invention, there are very few cars that have a cult following as zealous as that of the Porsche 911. This is especially true for the air-cooled models, which are all-time classics. If we combine the significance of an air-cooled 911 with the cocaine-snorting excess of the 1970s, we can see how a one-off 1979, guards red, modified Porsche 911 Turbo can be listed for $599,000 by a Florida dealership.

What You Really Need To Know About the 1997-2004 Porsche 996 911

What You Really Need To Know About the 1997-2004 Porsche 996 911

Is the 996 911 really inferior to all the 911s that came before it?

The Porsche 911 has had a long and illustrious history that dates all the way back to 1963. Basically becoming the posterchild for performance and what a true sports car should be, it has quite the cult following. One could even argue that it’s one of the most loved sports cars in the world. But, despite all of this love, there’s one generation that stands out as inferior, and that my friends is the 996 generation that was built between 1997 and 2004. Well, technically it stayed in production to some extent until 2006, but we’ll talk more about that later. So, was the 996 911 really such a bad car, and should you risk buying one today? It’s not as bad as you might think, although, there are some things you need to know about it.

Porsche Spent 3,100 Miles At Full Throttle Trying to Make The New 911 GT3 Fail

Reliability doesn’t come easy and Porsche’s motorsport experience shaped that concept in the 911 GT3

Today’s sports cars and race cars are a lot more reliable than those of the previous decade. In part, this is due to advances in technology and assembly techniques, but carmakers are also more poised on torturing their cars before they finally release them on the market. Case in point: Porsche and the grueling reliability tests that the new 911 GT3 had to endure.

Porsche 911 GT3 - A Complete History

Porsche 911 GT3 - A Complete History

The story of a legendary nameplate sitting next to another legendary nameplate

Porsche is known for continuously bringing race-bred technology into its road cars. The Stuttgart-based manufacturer that has been perfecting the rear-engine formula for over five decades now is also famous for its homologation specials, road-worthy counterparts built by Porsche to race thoroughbred competition machinery in production-based classes of sports car racing. 20 years ago, Porsche introduced the latest model that would spawn a myriad of racing versions: the Porsche 911 GT3, a track-oriented 911 that could be used as a daily driver (if you dared). It came at the same time as the not-for-the-purist 996 generation but, in spite of this, can you now imagine a world without the 911 GT3 in it?

Where were you in 1999 when Porsche unveiled the 996.1-generation Porsche 911 GT3? Well, you probably weren’t at the Geneva Auto Show where Porsche took the wraps of what was, in essence, the road-legal version of the newest Porsche 911 Cup car that would compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany and later in the Porsche Supercup sharing the bill with the Formula 1 World Championship. The first 911 GT3 looked a bit tame but, as years rolled by, it evolved, growing bigger, more aggressive, and more insane and overshadowed with ease the 911 GT2, a model we originally thought it’d replace before Porsche decided to continue making GT2 models, somewhat as even more extreme versions of the 911. This is the story of the GT3, a model more famous than all of the track-focused 911s that have come before it, even the Carrera RS 2.7 of 1973.
