Porsche

Porsche is known as the purveyor of rear-engined sports cars and GTs but, in the past two decades, it has greatly extended its business and, now, the backbone of Weissach’s lineup is made up of SUVs like the Macan and the Cayenne and the ultra-luxurious sedan that is the Panamera. Of course, there will always be more fans of the mythical 911 that’s been in production since the mid-’60s but two-door cars are hardly the bread and the butter of the company nowadays, although they will always remain the stars as Porsche’s motorsports-bred DNA is embedded in each and every model that leaves Stuttgart.

A Super-Rare Porsche 964 "Flachbau" Has Come Up For Sale

One of only 10 Porsche 964 slant Nose is currently for Sale

There’s hardly been a more consistent sports car over the years than the Porsche 911. The 964-generation, in particular, made between 1989 and 1993 is one of the most sought-after generations, especially in its ClubSport RS and Turbo variants. However, there was a peculiar situation in 1993. The last 93 examples of the Porsche 964 had remained in inventory and the Porsche 993 was due. The only option was to make them more outlandish-looking, faster, and exclusive. Enter the 1994 Porsche 964 Turbo 3.6 S – arguably the most sought-after version of the 964 and this particular one, listed for sale on “RM Soeheby’s”, is even more special than the rest.

Porsche Denies Rumors About a New Halo Hypercar, But That Doesn't Mean It Isn't Happening

Porsche Denies Rumors About a New Halo Hypercar, But That Doesn’t Mean It Isn’t Happening

Is Porsche really cooking a mid-engine GT1 successor?

Porsche’s sports car lineup is quite diverse, having numerous high-performance models based on both the 911 and 718. That said, the German carmaker currently doesn’t have a proper flagship model. Previously that role was filled by the hybrid 918, but its production was ended back in 2015. Of course, Porsche brought back the 911 GT2 RS, which was based on the 991 and they even did a homage to the 935 Moby Dick, based on that GT2 RS. With this in mind, we’ve been getting mixed reports about a potential “GT1 successor,” some of which are quite interesting.

The Marc Phillipp Gemballa Marsien is a throwback to the Porsche 959 Safari with epic design cues

Watch A Tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S Obliterate A Lamborghini Aventador SV and A Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti On The Drag Strip

The tuned 911 Turbo S shows no mercy to the 488 Pista Piloti and the Aventador SV in a series of straight-line races

The team at Carwow brought three fast cars to the drag strip. The contenders include the Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti, the Lamborghini Aventador SV, and a Porsche 911 Turbo S. The Pista Piloti and Aventador SV make more power than the Porsche in the standard form, but the latter is tuned to make 150 horses more for a Hulk-like transformation. Courtesy of this, it absolutely annihilates both the 700+ horsepower cars in a series of drag races! How often do you see a Ferrari and a Lamborghini get treated with such utter disdain?

Jay Leno Has Never Driven A Porsche Boxster - Until Now, That Is

Jay Leno Has Never Driven A Porsche Boxster - Until Now, That Is

On the 25th Anniversary of the Porsche Boxster, Jay Leno comes off surprised at what he’d been missing out on

It’s hard to imagine that the Porsche Boxster is already 25 years old this year. On his show, Jay Leno’s Garage, the talk show presenter and host takes a look at the new limited edition version of the Boxster.

In the video, Jay states that he was present at the 1993 Detroit Auto Show when the Boxster concept was originally presented to the public. He went on to add that he had never driven one before filming this edition of his popular show.

Do you have any idea why? Jay claims that when he inquired at the Porsche booth if he could see the engine, he was told that he couldn’t since the car was mid-engined. As a result, Leno has been unconcerned about the Boxster line since. Until now that is.
