Of all the cars that Porsche makes, none of them say "Porsche" quite like the venerable 911. The 911 production run spans all the way back to 1964. Over its lifetime, the car has certainly changed significantly underneath, yet it has maintained very similar styling with a focus on driving engagement and performance. The car's styling has continued to evolve over the decades, and that practice has continued with the new Porsche 911 (992) that has debuted at the LA Auto Show.  Power for the new 911 comes from a next-generation flat-six turbo engine that is "further developed and more powerful" making 450PS (about 444 hp) in S models. The new engine uses an improved fuel injection process along... Read more...
While BMW is hitting all the right notes with its all-new G20 3-Series for the compact luxury sedan market, Porsche is going straight for performance glory (with gorgeous looks to match) via the new 911 Speedster. This 911 Speedster represents the swan song for the 991 chassis, which was first introduced in 2011. The 991 will soon be replaced by the all new 992 chassis next year. We can't possibly keep up with all of the gazillion variants that Porsche has crafted for the 991, but the 911 Speedster in Guards Red is easily one of the best looking. Porsche created the car to mark the 70th anniversary of the company's birthday, and there will only be 1,948 produced (which almost certainly... Read more...
Porsche is no stranger to rip-roarious supercars; just look at the German marque’s 918 Spyder, which pumps out a combined 887 horsepower and a staggering 944 lb-ft of torque courtesy of its hybrid powertrain. On a slightly more “sane” level, there’s the 997 911 GT2 RS, which launched in 2011 with 612 horsepower and a top speed of 205 mph. Porsche is hardly a company that stands still technologically (even if its vehicle design evolution moves at a glacial pace), which is why the company is officially spilling all the beans on its all-new 997-generation 911 GT2 RS. Porsche gave us a sneak peek at the new supercar at the Xbox One X unveil to coincide with a Forza Motorsport 7 showcase, but now... Read more...
Modding a Porsche 911 to serve as the controller while playing the original Doom game on the car's infotainment system sounds like a really bad idea. The same is true of modding any vehicle to be the controller for game, but it sounds especially dangerous for a sporty vehicle. That might be one reason why nobody's ever made such a mod, though if it were to exist at any point, YouTube user vexal shows what the experience might be like. By all means, vexal (real name Matt Swarthout, according to his YouTube profile) is a smart dude who writes software, enjoys gaming, and plays piano. He is also a bit of a prankster, as evidenced by his latest video clip. His nearly 3 and a half minute video explains... Read more...
