Porsche 904 Living Legend - The Ducati-Powered Track Car That Never Happened
When a brand has a history as long and as proud as Porsche, there are bound to be plenty of iconic models. While the Porsche 911 has been the brand’s signature model for decades and the basis for many special models, including competition models, the 1964 Porsche 904 was just as capable in its own segment. In 2020, Porsche revealed a series of previously unrevealed concepts that show that the 904 almost got a spiritual successor back in 2013. It was called the Porsche 904 Living Legend (LL), and here’s what it would have been had Porsche decided to make it.
This Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Sets a Guinness Record For The Highest Number Of Donuts
It’s safe to say that the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is the first all-electric, high-riding station wagon. It’s also pretty quick with the power output ranging from 476 to 761 horsepower, depending on the version. This means that, if the driver so chooses, it can kick its rear end out without much effort, which is why it managed to set a Guinness World record for the highest number of donuts executed on ice.

A certain percentage of car enthusiasts lust after the Porsche 911. The rear-engine sports car from the 1960s is currently in its eighth generation, the 992, but for many, it was the Porsche 997 that’s considered the last truly old-school 911.

Confirmed: The Porsche 718 Goes All-Electric in 2025!!
It’s been two years since Porsche’s R&D Chief, Michael Steiner, told us that the electric 718 wouldn’t happen anytime soon, and in the time since then, there have been some developments. A year after his statement, we learned that Porsche was still undecided about what to do, but eventually we learned that an electric 718 Boxster Concept was going to be revealed “sometime soon.” With rumors floating around about the electric 718 since 2019 and the assumption that it would be based on the Mission R Concept, we’re happy to report that Porsche has finally confirmed that the 718 EV is happening. But, you might not want to get too excited just yet.
The Porsche 911 Hybrid Is Coming into Focus as New Details Emerge
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.

This Tesla Model X Plaid vs Porsche 911 Turbo S Drag Race Is Modern-Day David vs Goliath, But With A Twist!
Brooks recently got a Tesla Model X Plaid on his YouTube channel and did some quarter-mile sprints to see how quick it is. As expected, it scored some pretty good numbers. In its best run, it recorded a 0-60 mph time of 2.36 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.754 seconds.

Porsche To Run a Twin-Turbo V-8 On Renewable Fuel, At Le Mans
With the advent of electric propulsion and the search for “greener” alternative fuels, it’s safe to say we live in interesting times.

Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Makes a Strong Case For Manual Cars At The Autobahn
The Porsche 911 GT3 is the ultimate, normally-aspirated 911 and the YouTube channel AutoTopNL recently got its hands on a 992 GT3 Touring – the more street-oriented, “less shouty” version of the normally-aspirated track weapon, without the crazy aero. And while race tracks are the home of the GT3, here, we see how capable the wingless version is, on the Autobahn. Is the “purest 911” capable enough, in the age of turbocharged performance cars?
