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

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.

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.

Imagine a World Where Cupra Had Porsche Technology and Underpinnings

Imagine a World Where Cupra Had Porsche Technology and Underpinnings

There’s a good chance it will never happen, but could you imagine if future Cupra models had a significant amount of Porsche DNA?

Cupra was launched before the calendar switched to the 2020s to serve as SEAT’s in-house and resident performance arm – similar to the way Genesis is the luxury arm of Hyundai, for example. However, as SEAT and its Cupra arm fall under the Volkswagen umbrella, you can imagine there’s not a lot that separates them from other lower (as in Non-Porsche and Bugatti) VAG brands. The Cupra brand has expressed interest in separating itself from SEAT and other VW products, but so far, little movement in that direction has happened. After all, the Cupra Born, the company’s first EV, looks so similar to the Volkswagen ID.3 that it might as well be a fancy rebadge job at best. But, with so many brands under the VAG umbrella, what if the company borrowed technology from other brands, like say… Porsche?

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.

Not Even Porsche is Immune to the War in Ukraine

Not Even Porsche is Immune to the War in Ukraine

As it turns out, Porsche buys something very important for its cars from the region, and it’s had to halt production on its two most important models

If I were to ask you what Porsche’s most important model is, it would be one of two answers. You’d either say that it’s the Porsche 911 because it’s so iconic or you’d say it’s the Porsche Taycan because you’re head over heels in love electric cars. Neither of these are the right answer, though. Porsche’s most important models are the Macan and the Panamera, mainly because they are at the top of the brand’s best-selling list. This has turned into a problem, though, as Porsche can no longer continue production because it’s missing a very vital component for both models, and it’s all because of the Ukraine-Russia war.

A Porsche IPO Could Be Closer Than We All Thought

A Porsche IPO Could Be Closer Than We All Thought

The IPO could see Porsche valued at anywhere between $50-100 billion

Word of Porsche going public has been circulating for quite a while now, but back in November, we learned that the whole idea was being put on hold. Now, three months and an invasion of the start of another war, and here we are talking about a Porsche IPO once again. This time, however, it seems as if it may be closer than we all expected.

A Cargo Ship Carrying Thousands Of Porsches, Bentleys, And Audis Is Burning At The Atlantic Ocean

Fortunately, the crew has been evacuated and is unharmed

That Audi, Porsche, or Bentley you’ve ordered might probably arrive a lot longer than expected, or maybe not at all. Chances are, it could be a casualty of a fire that just broke out at the Felicity Ace, the cargo ship that’s handling your precious German luxury car.

Nearly 9 Out Of 10 Cars Sold In This Country Were EVs

Nearly 9 Out Of 10 Cars Sold In This Country Were EVs

This nation has embraced EVs much more than everyone else

Electric vehicle (EV) sales in the United States still represent a drop in the bucket. Based on the data released by Cox Automotive, 487,460 EVs were sold in 2021. While that only accounts for 9.7-percent of all the vehicles sold last year, that still represents a 79.9-percent increase compared to 2020. The situation for EVs is vastly different in Norway, however, where nearly nine out of 10 new cars sold last month were EVs.

You can make a cheap Porsche look insanely expensive with this body kit.

This collaboration that could result in more amazing and cheap(er) body kits

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.

2023 Porsche 911 Turbo Facelift spied for the first time

An updated Porsche 911 Turbo has been spotted testing. It brings subtle, but interesting exterior updates

The Porsche 911 is currently in its eighth generation, internally dubbed the 992. The current generation debuted in 2019, with the 911 Turbo debuting in March 2020, and as always, followed the philosophy “evolution, not revolution”. Fast-forward to the end of 2021 and we have spy footage, which shows an updated version of the 992 Turbo testing in the snow. Here’s what we see.

The Porsche IPO Isn't happening Just Yet

The Porsche IPO Isn’t happening Just Yet

Porsche’s IPO plans have been put on the back burner for now, however, should it be offered in the future, the German Marques valuation might exceed that of its parent VW

If there’s one brand that’s catapulted EV ambitions within the Volkswagen Group, it has to be Porsche. While Audi may have been the first to bring their e-Tron to market, it wasn’t until the Taycan came along that several brands within the VW Group started making the shift to electric mobility.

Porsche Is Paying Tribute to the Past With Three Retro-Inspired 911s

Porsche Is Paying Tribute to the Past With Three Retro-Inspired 911s

Porsche is coming up with three very special 911 versions and they are all inspired by legendary 911 models of the past

It’s safe to say that Porsche has a version of the 911 for everyone. Currently, there are 21 versions of the iconic rear-engine sports car available, and that’s before we get to the special editions like 911 Speedster or anything Porsche can cook up for you, through their “Sondewunsch” program. But apparently, this isn’t enough and Porsche is coming up with more special versions – three of them to be exact – and here’s what we know about them.
