This Rare, Low-Mileage Porsche 918 Spyder Will Sell For A Truckload of Money
The Porsche 918 Spyder was part of a hybrid hypercar triumvirate when it was unveiled in 2015. It sat alongside the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari, and it opened the doors for more electrified sports cars and supercars since. Unsurprisingly, the 918 Spyder was only produced in limited quantities, and if you weren’t able to line up for one, here’s your chance to own one.
10 Road-Legal Cars Powered By F1 Engines
The term “race car for the road” has been abused quite thoroughly by marketers wanting to make certain cars more appealing to car enthusiasts. With that said, few things scream “race car for the road” as loud as a Formula One engine, and these 10 cars are motivated by engines based on, or developed for Formula One racing.
Drag Race: Ferrari 488 Pista vs Lamborghini Huracan STO vs Porsche 911 GT3
Mat Watson from ‘Carwow’ is back with yet another drag race involving three supercars that have loyal fan bases of their own. But, no matter how desirable, this race is a tad bit stale. We had the same results with whatever kind of race that happened. Now, it’s not necessary that every race has to tug our heartstrings or give us the adrenaline rush, right? But, then why did we cover it? Well, the cars are eye candies and sound amazing. That’s it!
Superbike vs Supercars: Watch A Ducati Challenge A Porsche And A McLaren To A Drag Race
This video from the past deserves to get attention even today. It’s a drag race between two supercars and one superbike. The contenders were the Porsche 918 Spyder, the McLaren P1, and the Ducati 1199 Superleggera. The folks at Autocar pit these three against each other for a standing mile drag race. Believe it or not, the difference between the winner and the loser was 0.38 seconds. Mind-blowing, isn’t it?
A Widebody Porsche 996 Slant Nose Makes For An Epic Homage To The Porsche 935
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.
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.
To show that might over other cars, the Model X Plaid went up against the 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S. There’s no way the German is winning, and that shows how powerful and insane the Model X Plaid is. How often do you see a Porsche 911 Turbo S enter a race as the underdog?
The Most Ridiculously Expensive Porsche Models Ever Sold In History
Porsche has made numerous legendary cars throughout history. After all, racing was and still is in their blood. Each of the cars on this list has influenced the automotive world in one way or another. Another common ingredient with all these cars? All of these are extremely rare, and all were powered by a boxer or a flat engine, which is a signature engine configuration for Porsche even to this day. As such, the cars on this list have been auctioned at staggeringly-high prices, and we understand if the prices of the cars on this list will leave you mind blown.
You can make a cheap Porsche look insanely expensive with this body kit.
Custom car body kits from brands like Liberty Walk and RWB are notoriously expensive, and that doesn’t take into account the fact that they are only for supercars and classic Porsches, which cost as much as proper supercars. Now though, there is an alternative.

The Model S Plaid Once Again Proves That You Don’t Need A Zillion Dollar Hypercar To Do Breakneck Speed
We really do live in some strange times. I mean who would have thought about a decade ago that a family sedan could give zillion-dollar hypercars a run for their money. Back then most people would associate an EV with milk floats or those buggies or golf carts you see at a fancy resort. The Tesla Model S Plaid is a far cry from those days and Tesla is responsible for initiating a paradigm shift in the auto industry.
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?

Here are the most prominent culprits.
