PostHeaderIcon Here’s Why Porsche will Bring back the 959 in 2019

 The Porsche 959 was an icon o fits time; it was luxurious, sexy and downright fast. It is arguably responsible for the awesome supercars that we see today.

In 2018, Porsche took us by surprise with a 935 race car for the modern era. Although based on the existing 911 GT2 RS and built using parts from the 919 Hybrid, 911 RSR, and 911 GT3 R, the modern 935 looks incredibly similar to its sibling, produced between 1978 to 1981. With Porsche now making tribute cars from the past, what if Porsche decides to create a modern rendition of the 959 in 2019?

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT2 RS – From 444 to 700 Horsepower

Porsche has been offering high-performance versions of the 911 since the early 1970s, with the most iconic model being the Carrera 2.7 RS. But once the Germans adopted turbocharging, the traditional RS stepped down, making room for a new range-topping sports car, the 911 GT2. First introduced in 1993, the GT2 is now in its fourth generation, which is based on the 991.2 model. It’s faster, more powerful, and more aerodynamic than its predecessor, while also boasting more technology than ever. Thenew GT2 RS is a massive departure from the first GT2 from more than two decades ago under the skin, and we’re going to look at those changes in a drivetrain comparison for all four generations.

The GT2 was born out of the 993-generation 911 as a homologation vehicle for motorsport purpose. Built to meet GT2 class regulations, the road cars were named accordingly and the nameplate survived to this day. The first GT2 was discontinued in 1998, but Porsche revived the badge in 2002 for the 996 model. After three years, it was again discontinued, only to return as the 997 GT2 in 2008. The 997 was also the first GT2 to get an RS designation, which was offered in very limited numbers from 2010 to 2012. Come 2017 and the GT2 returns to the market as an RS model only. Since 1993, the drivetrain not only swapped air-cooled for water-cooled engines, but also gained more displacement a lot more power. Let’s find out more about that below.

PostHeaderIcon Valentine's Day Special – Spread The Car Love

There’s really one good reason you’re reading these words right now – you love cars. Non-car people don’t get it. They laugh and roll their eyes, calling it a waste of time to fix up that old beater, a waste of money to get out to the track for another weekend. That’s ok – let ‘em. Of course it doesn’t make sense to them. They don’t know the joy of finally getting an engine to spark back to life. They don’t know the thrill of setting a new personal best lap time. Too bad for them.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we’ve assembled five videos that are sure to remind you why you love cars. We’ve got a little bit of everything here, from Euro speed to Japanese tech, ground-up rebuilds to expansive muscle car car collections.

So sit back, hit play, and when you’re done, treat yourself to a drive.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 997 Turbo By Wimmer RS

Porsche ended production for the 997 Turbo Cabriolet back in 2012, having replaced it with the current generation 991. But, even if it has been close to four years since we last saw the 997 Turbo Cabriolet, German tuner Wimmer RS still took time to build an impressive kit for the previous-generation 911. If you think about it, any kit that promises up to 840 horsepower of performance is incredible, even if the model has been gone for a long time.

That’s what we have here with this kit from Wimmer. It’s not one of those overblown kits that come with a grocery list of aerodynamic components and interior upgrades. In fact, it has neither of those things. But, anybody who does avail of this program will have no trouble accepting the absence of these items because the engine upgrade that it does have has the capacity to bring the car’s performance capability to a whole new stratosphere.

Think this Wimmer kit is dated? Let me be the first to tell you that you’re not going to feel that way once you step inside a 977 Turbo Cabriolet with this program firmly entrenched in it. On the aesthetic side, it even has a unique body wrap that’ll ensure that all eyes will be glued to this 977 Turbo Cabriolet when it’s on the road.

There are a lot of things to like about this program for the 997 Turbo Cabriolet by Wimmer RS. I’m sure those who end up getting it will have no problems agreeing with that sentiment.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT3 by Vollkemmen Design

This sick 991 GT3 is up for sale on Rennlist. It’s not cheap, but well worth the money.

When the 2007 GT3 997 hit the streets, it bore the most powerful atmospheric engine Porsche had ever created. With 415 horsepower on tap from a howling 3.6-liter, flat-six motor that revs all the way a lofty 8,400 rpm, there’s plenty of straight-line speed. Complimenting this is a suspension setup that’s clearly well designed for attacking split times. However, that ferocity on the track belies the GT3’s docility around town. The amount of practicality Porsche managed to get away with in the 997 is quite surprising, given the pure performance intentions behind the car’s design. While not necessarily a daily driver, the 997 is still capable of picking up a gallon of milk without completely curdling one’s innards. But really, who cares about all that? This speed weapon from Stuttgart is beyond such menial tasks. Instead, owners should shower it with full–throttle salutes, at-limit cornering, and expensive go-faster parts.

Clearly, the current owner of this particular 997 agrees.

Listed for sale at Porsche enthusiast website Rennlist, this GT3 is simply dripping with high-end modifications. It’s also an award winner, collecting such accolades as Car and Driver’s45 Cars You Must See from SEMA 2014”, and “Best Aftermarket Porsche” from DrivingLine. And with only 14,450 miles on the odometer, it’s practically brand new.

The owner clearly picked a good platform for his project. The 997 is one of the best-selling Porsches of all time. Even renowned Porsche-hater Jeremy Clarkson can’t deny it’s tantalizing appeal.

With such a good starting point, how can anyone expect to make improvements without utterly ruining it? Make the jump to find out.
