This Modern Porsche 911 Is The Spitting Image of Its Ancestor From 1965

The first Porsche 911 in Australia with its matching grandchildren

Porsche’s 911 is a true staple among sports cars as well as being a benchmark in terms of both performance and the driving experience. It all started more than five decades ago and merely months after the 911 was put into series production, a Stone Grey example arrived on the shores of Australia. That was the first 911 to drive on the roads Down Under and now, Porsche Center Melbourne and Porsche Center Sydney South have joined forces to build two 992-based tributes some 55 years on.

Paying tribute to the old Porsche 356

The 2020 Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is a limited-edition version of the 911 Targa, which the German automaker unveiled in late May 2020. Initially showcased on the 911 Speedster in 2019, the Heritage Design package makes its debut on the 992-generation 911 through the Targa model and Porsche says that three more models will follow. The series will also be joined by a Heritage product line, as well as a limited-edition chronograph.

2020 Porsche Panamera 10 Years Edition

2020 Porsche Panamera 10 Years Edition

The Panamera is a decade old, and here’s to more decades under its belt

Ten years ago, Porsche launched a model that was derided far and wide for running counter to the German automaker’s spirit and ethos. Like the Cayenne SUV, the Porsche Panamera upset a lot of people, not the least of which were the so-called purists who scoffed at the idea of Porsche broadening its appeal beyond its two-door, mid-engined sports cars. The Cayenne was a big enough departure from tradition on its own and the Panamera was looked at with the same level of disdain. It’s funny how things have turned out, right? Today, the Porsche Panamera is one of the most popular models Porsche has in its lineup, lasting long enough to earn a special edition model that’s dedicated solely on its 10th anniversary. This, folks, is the Porsche Panamera 10 Year Edition, and, if for nothing else, it’s a symbol of validation for Porsche to show to those who scoffed at the idea of a luxury four-door sedan wearing a Porsche badge. The Porsche Panamera 10 Year Edition hits the market in the first quarter of 2010 at a starting price of $104,650.

A Roofless Porsche Cayman Is Here To Remind You Of The Bergspyder, a 847-pound racer

A Roofless Porsche Cayman Is Here To Remind You Of The Bergspyder, a 847-pound racer

The Porsche 909 Bergspyder remains the lightest Porsche ever, lighter even than the Porsche 804 F1 car, and this Cayman follows in its footsteps

Porsche likes keeping secrets. With a vault full of priceless cars and many projects ongoing at the same time, we sometimes get surprised when something new comes out of Wiessach, and this is just such a moment. What you’re looking at is a roofless Cayman with one seat and a minimalistic roll hoop or, to be more pedantic, a Boxster from the third generation modified to be lighter than ever. It’s inspired by the 909 Bergspyder from 1968, and it only weighs 2,422 pounds, a whopping 741 pounds lighter than a Boxster GTS with the PDK transmission and 476 pounds lighter than the Boxster Spyder.

Now, all of you Porsche fanatics out there, don’t jump on your computers dropping emails to Porsche asking about this thing, officially known as the Boxster Bergspyder, because it’s not really real. I mean, it is real, the car in the shots does exist, but that’s it. Porsche built only one to mark the 50th anniversary of the 909 Bergspyder and, due to potential registration issues, decided to break the mold after that. So, yes, if you want an ultra-light Boxster you still have to wait for the 718 Boxster Spyder but you can already be sure it won’t be as light as this one because it can’t be. Also, what’s cool about the 981-generation Boxster Bergspyder is that it’s powered by the 3.8-liter mill from the 2016 Cayman GT4 so there’re no turbos. Oh, how we wish Porsche would change its mind...

2019 Porsche Panamera GTS

A space filler between the standard Panamera and the Panamera Turbo

The 2019 Porsche Panamera and the Panamera Sports Turismo get some extra pizzazz with both being offered with a GTS badge. This is not the first time Porsche has used the GTS moniker on its cars; the second-generation Panamera and the Panamera Sport Turismo have gotten the same treatment and have been quite successful. The GTS versions have always been a good bang for the buck, as you get performance specs and features that are optional on other models, without actually costing a bomb.

As before, the latest Panamera GTS looks to combine a sporty attitude with the luxury and utility of a four-door body style, offering both weekend thrills and daily-driving comfort.
