TechArt’s Porsche 911 Targa Is Ready To Respond To 911 Calls

Will it actually join the fleet of the German police?

TechArt got its hands on the Porsche 911 Targa and turned it into a police car. Don’t expect it to enter actual police duty, though. This tuned and dressed-up 911 Targa is a project between TechArt and TUNE IT! SAFE!, and it serves as a sort of symbolism for a worthwhile tuning initiative. That’s because this special Porsche 911 Targa is a showcase that, according to TechArt and TUNE IT! SAFE!, "shows that appealing creative tuning does not have to be in conflict with legal requirements."

The Porsche 718 Cayman EV Won't Lose That Mid-Engine Driving Dynamic

The Porsche 718 Cayman EV Won’t Lose That Mid-Engine Driving Dynamic

Porsche is, quite literally, setting the standard for electric sports cars

When Porsche revealed the electric Mission R Concept, it was billed as a preview of a one-maker racer, but it also previewed – to a small extent – what we can expect from the upcoming electric Porsche 718. In fact, the Mission R Concept was based on a highly modified version of the current 718’s chassis and even featured similar dimensions to the current road-going sports cars. And it’s because of this car that the next-gen electric 718 Cayman and Boxster will set the standard for how a modern sports car can transition into electrification without losing what matters the most – its driving dynamic.

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.

Can The Taycan Turbo S Pull A Win Over The Unconquerable 911 Turbo S?

Can The Taycan Turbo S Pull A Win Over The Unconquerable 911 Turbo S?

If history suggests anything, then the EV should win this race; but will the 911 Turbo S bow down so easily?

When EVs take on internal combustion engines, they win almost always. Cars like the Tesla Model S Plaid have beaten some of the beloved heavyweights, like the SF90 Stradale, the Nissan GT-R, the Lamborghini Huracan, etc. However, its chief rival, the Porsche Taycan, hasn’t had the same impact. So, how does the Taycan, in the top-spec Turbo S trim, perform against one of the best internal combustion-engined cars on the drag strip, the Porsche 911 Turbo S? Let’s find out.

New Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Prototype Reveals Fresh Secrets

New Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Prototype Reveals Fresh Secrets

One of those secrets is that it will be coming to the U.S, but how do we know that?

Porsche is about ready to reveal the new Cayman GT4 RS, and rumor has it that it’s going to happen on November 17 or 18. The date actually makes a lot of sense, considering those are the media days for the 2020 Los Angeles Auto Show. We’ve already seen some official photos released by Porsche when the GT4 RS was doing some testing on the Nürburgring, so these spy shots might not seem that interesting, but there’s actually more here than what meets the eye.

The Invincible Porsche 911 GT3 RS Gets Beaten By A... Volkswagen Beetle?!?!

The Invincible Porsche 911 GT3 RS Gets Beaten By A... Volkswagen Beetle?!?!

Can a 1972 Beetle with an electric powertrain beat a stock 991 Porsche 911 GT3 RS on the drag strip?

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is arguably one of the best internal combustion-engined cars on the drag strip. It has even beaten the likes of the Audi R8 Spyder. So, why even bother to put it up against an old-school, 1970s Volkswagen Beetle? Well, because this Beetle has been electrified and makes 450 horses! The Porsche makes more horsepower, but can the instant torque of the Beetle prove to be too much for the sports car?

Porsche is Developing a 911 Hybrid, and This Video is Proof

Porsche is Developing a 911 Hybrid, and This Video is Proof

This Porsche 911 Hybrid was caught running on the Nürburgring and may be called the 911 Turbo E-Hybrid

For years now, we’ve been told to patiently wait for an electrified Porsche 911. Back in 2018, Porsche’s 911 Product Line Director, August Achleitner said that an electrified 911 in any form definitely won’t come soon, with the plan being 2022 at the very earliest. Later on, we found out that Porsche was struggling to electrify the 911 without ruining its iconic nature, and finally, back in 2020 Frank-Steggen Walliser, the man in charge of Porsche’s sports car line, said the 911 would be the last Porsche to go electric. Things clearly haven’t been looking up for an electrified 911 – hybrid or full-on EV. All of that is about to change, though, and the video we have for you today is the proof – it’s a hybrid 911 kicking ass around the Nürburgring.

Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring

Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring

Singer has made the ultimate air-cooled 911. Now, they take on the Nurburgring with it

A few months ago, we talked about the Singer 911 DLS, which is a 500 horsepower, air-cooled, rear-engine, masterpiece, based on the 964-generation of the Porsche 911. We’ve been hearing about the car since 2018, but it was just a few months ago when the first customer car was finally ready. To say that the 911 DLS is the ultimate interpretation of an air-cooled 911 is a bold statement, which is why Singer decided to take it for a spin at the Nürburgring for some real testing.

RUF Made A 911 EV Long Before Porsche And Everyone Forgot About It

RUF actually made the first fully electric 911, before Porsche even considered it. They called it the eRUF Model A

Porsche is a brand mostly known for the 911 – a car everyone seems to have the habit of trying to reimagine these days. RUF has been quite successful at doing that and, even before Porsche started dabbling with the idea of a hybrid/electric 911, RUF went on to make their own – the eRUF Model A.

This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess

The 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" is a 600+ horsepower one-off that could be yours

The first automobile was invented in 1886 and since then many great cars have emerged. But even nearly 140 years after the automobile’s invention, there are very few cars that have a cult following as zealous as that of the Porsche 911. This is especially true for the air-cooled models, which are all-time classics. If we combine the significance of an air-cooled 911 with the cocaine-snorting excess of the 1970s, we can see how a one-off 1979, guards red, modified Porsche 911 Turbo can be listed for $599,000 by a Florida dealership.

Drag Race: How Much Quicker Is A Porsche 911 GT3 Than A 911 Carrera?

How close can the Porsche 911 Carrera get to the 911 GT3’s Performance? Carwow gives us the answer in a drag race

Our UK colleagues from Carwow have come up with another interesting drag race. This time, two versions of the Porsche 992 go head to head. You can probably tell, which of the two is going to win since we are talking about a base Porsche 911 Carrera and a 911 GT3. Racetrack performance aside, the question here is how much quicker the GT3 is, and will it be able to justify the enormous price difference?
