The Porsche Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition Comes With a Unique Surprise
Porsche never offered a special edition based on the electric Taycan. Well, at least, not until now. Today the German company announced the Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition (don’t worry, we don’t know how to pronounce it either) - a special model that marks the 90th anniversary of the Hockenheimring - a motor racing circuit built in 1932, that, since 2019 it is also the home of the Porsche Experience Centre.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Porsche 911 ST
Back in the 1970s, the racing world was very competitive - maybe a little bit more than it is today. With strong competition coming from makers like Ford or BMW, Porsche really had to offer something better than everything else. That’s how the Porsche 911 ST was born. The new race car was built for just one year: 1970 to 1971, and there were only 24 units built. The ST entered various races from Daytona, Targa Florio, and Nürburgring, and even won the GT class at Le Mans. Now, 52 years later, Porsche will pay tribute to the iconic 911 ST and its success with a special edition. It is based on the current generation 911 but will carry the ST name.

The Porsche 911 Sport Classic Is More Than Just Some Old-School Aesthetic Mods
Back in 2020, Porsche came up with the first of the four collector’s items from its Heritage Design Strategy. These would essentially be four modern models inspired by some of the iconic Porsche models from the past. The first model was the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition with design elements from the 1950s and 1960s. Fast forward to the present day, and the German automaker, in partnership with the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, has come up with the second model called the 911 Sport Classic.
The 911 Sport Classic is based on the 911 Turbo S model, and comes with a buttload of changes. Right from the exterior aesthetics, to the interior changes, to the drivetrain tweaks, the 911 Sport Classic is a living embodiment of the phrase ‘Back to the Future’. Feast on this gallery and learn everything you need to know about the car.
The Limited-Edition Porsche 911 Sport Classic Will Take You Back To The 60s - RWD, Manual Gearbox, and a Ducktail Spoiler!

This Porsche Taycan Coupe Shows What An EV Equivalent of The 911 Could Look Like

But what would a Taycan-inspired, EV equivalent to the 911 look like? Design studio 2NCS gives us an idea with this Porsche Taycan Coupe.
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?
