TechArt’s Porsche 911 Targa Is Ready To Respond To 911 Calls
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."
2023 Porsche 911 Safari Prototype Surfaces Yet Again
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Is the Fastest Street-Legal Cayman Ever
The Porsche 718 Cayman EV Won’t Lose That Mid-Engine Driving Dynamic
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
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?
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
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.
2022 Porsche 911 GT3 956 Edition
The Porsche 911, in all its versions, is one of the most definitive sports cars of all time. With this in mind, Porsche’s “Sonderwunsch” (special request) program occasionally spawns some truly epic versions, based on the rear-engine sports car. Such is the case with this Porsche 992 GT3 “956 Edition”.
The Invincible Porsche 911 GT3 RS Gets Beaten By A... Volkswagen Beetle?!?!
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
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.
Porsche 911 GT3 Looks Amazing In 956-Inspired Livery
Paolo Barilla, overall winner of Le Mans in 1985, is celebrating his birthday in style. In cooperation with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, he designed his dream car. He wanted to drive a car that will remind him of the car he drive back in 1985. He opted for a Porsche 911 GT3 and went for the same color scheme found on the Porsche 956, but also went for unique wheels and a redesigned interior.
Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring
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
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.
Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Is Damn Impressive on the Nürburgring
It is no secret that a new 718 Cayman GT4 is being thoroughly tested before its November debut. It’s the top-tier RS variant that has been caught numerous times by spy photographers, and now, Porsche has announced that it is 24 seconds faster than the standard GT4 around the 12.9-mile Nürburgring circuit.
This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess
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.
The Taycan Is Porsche’s Best-Selling Non-SUV So Far This Year
In a world where crossovers and SUVs reign supreme, it is no surprise that the Porsche Cayenne and Macan continue to be the brand’s best-sellers. For the rest of Porsche’s model lineup though, the all-electric Taycan sits comfortably in third, making it the best-selling non-SUV Porsche so far this year.
Drag Race: How Much Quicker Is A Porsche 911 GT3 Than A 911 Carrera?
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?
