A Decade Apart: Manual 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S vs. 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S

The Porsche 911 gets better by the generation and here’s the hard proof

With every new 911 generation, Porsche doesn’t forget to mention that it is the best 911 to date and equally important, the best 911 it can be at the moment of launch. This, however, doesn’t make past-gen 911s weak, for the simple reason that Porsche wholeheartedly invest all its know-how into its core sportscar, regardless of the age they came to be.

So when Throttle House dropped a video that compares the current 2020 911 to the 2010 911, our interest piqued.

How The Porsche 959 Rally Legend Redefined The Nature of Supercars

How The Porsche 959 Rally Legend Redefined The Nature of Supercars

Porsche looks back on the 959’s historic win at Paris-Dakar

For most of its long and illustrious career, the Porsche 911 acted as the brand’s range-topping sports car through turbocharged models like the Turbo, Turbo S, and GT2. But the 911 was at times superseded by supercars like the 959, Carrera GT, and 918 Spyder.

The 959 was Porsche’s first supercar and it’s by far the most intriguing when it comes to the reason it was designed. Unlike its spiritual successors, the 959 was born out of Porsche’s desire to join Group B rally racing. But development took longer than expected and by the time the 959 was ready for production and homologation, Group B was cancelled. Porsche eventually raced it at the Paris-Dakar Rally, winning the grueling event in 1986. It’s been almost 35 years since the 959 won the race and Porsche is celebrating with a special "Top 5 Series" video.

What You Really Need To Know About the 1997-2004 Porsche 996 911

Is the 996 911 really inferior to all the 911s that came before it?

The Porsche 911 has had a long and illustrious history that dates all the way back to 1963. Basically becoming the posterchild for performance and what a true sports car should be, it has quite the cult following. One could even argue that it’s one of the most loved sports cars in the world. But, despite all of this love, there’s one generation that stands out as inferior, and that my friends is the 996 generation that was built between 1997 and 2004. Well, technically it stayed in production to some extent until 2006, but we’ll talk more about that later. So, was the 996 911 really such a bad car, and should you risk buying one today? It’s not as bad as you might think, although, there are some things you need to know about it.

A Porsche 911 Turbo S and a McLaren 720S Roll Onto the Drag Strip - Can You Guess Who Wins?

Is AWD more important than power at the drag strip?

Quarter-mile times were a big thing back in the 1960s when the big American companies were operating by the motto "win on Sunday, sell on Monday." It’s no longer used as a business model nowadays, but quarter-mile times are still a cool way to measure performance. In today’s comparison, we take a look at an exciting drag race between the Porsche 911 Turbo S and the McLaren 720S thanks to Carwow.

The most important thing is that the latest most track-focused normally-aspirated 911 is underway, and here’s what we can expect.

Can the 991 911 Turbo S beat its successor, or will the new model win the bragging rights?

Porsche replaced the 991 911 Turbo S with the 992 model and it came with quite a few changes on the outside, inside, and in the mechanical department. The 992 came with better specs on paper and was a step up over the 991. But, does it reflect the same on a drag strip?

Porsche Spent 3,100 Miles At Full Throttle Trying to Make The New 911 GT3 Fail

Reliability doesn’t come easy and Porsche’s motorsport experience shaped that concept in the 911 GT3

Today’s sports cars and race cars are a lot more reliable than those of the previous decade. In part, this is due to advances in technology and assembly techniques, but carmakers are also more poised on torturing their cars before they finally release them on the market. Case in point: Porsche and the grueling reliability tests that the new 911 GT3 had to endure.

Porsche 911 GT3 - A Complete History

Porsche 911 GT3 - A Complete History

The story of a legendary nameplate sitting next to another legendary nameplate

Porsche is known for continuously bringing race-bred technology into its road cars. The Stuttgart-based manufacturer that has been perfecting the rear-engine formula for over five decades now is also famous for its homologation specials, road-worthy counterparts built by Porsche to race thoroughbred competition machinery in production-based classes of sports car racing. 20 years ago, Porsche introduced the latest model that would spawn a myriad of racing versions: the Porsche 911 GT3, a track-oriented 911 that could be used as a daily driver (if you dared). It came at the same time as the not-for-the-purist 996 generation but, in spite of this, can you now imagine a world without the 911 GT3 in it?

Where were you in 1999 when Porsche unveiled the 996.1-generation Porsche 911 GT3? Well, you probably weren’t at the Geneva Auto Show where Porsche took the wraps of what was, in essence, the road-legal version of the newest Porsche 911 Cup car that would compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany and later in the Porsche Supercup sharing the bill with the Formula 1 World Championship. The first 911 GT3 looked a bit tame but, as years rolled by, it evolved, growing bigger, more aggressive, and more insane and overshadowed with ease the 911 GT2, a model we originally thought it’d replace before Porsche decided to continue making GT2 models, somewhat as even more extreme versions of the 911. This is the story of the GT3, a model more famous than all of the track-focused 911s that have come before it, even the Carrera RS 2.7 of 1973.

RUF is one of the select few automotive institutions in the world that can take a Porsche, tear it apart, tweak it, glue it back together, and the result is a better car than the stock vehicle. The Pfaffenhausen-based company’s lineup saw no shortage of extreme builds over time, but few can surpass the RUF BTR.
