PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT3 with Touring Package

Say what you will about Porsche’s tendency to get a little carried away with its niche variants for the 911, but credit should be heaped on the company for being aware of what customers want. Take the Porsche 911 GT3 for example. By every sports car metric, the 911 GT3 is a shining example of the best of Stuttgart engineering. The only problem with it is that it’s far from being the most understated 911 in the market, no thanks to its attention-grabbing aero bits. Then there’s the 911 R, the answer to prayers coming from Porsche purists who were crossing their fingers for a manual transmission 911. The 911 R was the answer to those prayers, except it was limited to just 991 units. Enter then the Porsche 911 GT3 with Touring Package. Think of it as the love child between the 911 GT3 and the 911 R, carrying elements from both models and wrapping them all up in one scintillating package.

The car’s name may not roll off the tongue as smoothly as I’d like, but remember, there is a precedence in Porsche’s history of the “Touring” name being used on a 911, specifically the 1973 Porsche Carrera 911 RS Touring. So we’ve established the roots of the 911 GT3 Touring. But far more than just being a product of Porsches-gone-by and previous iterations of the current-generation 911, the 911 GT3 Touring is a car of its own devices, understated in appearance yet ferocious in performance. In my view, this is the Porsche 911 variant that purists have been waiting for.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT3 Goes Stealth Mode In Frankfurt

With its enormous rear wing and track-bred attitude, the Porsche 911 GT3 is not traditionally the sort of car you want if you’re looking to fly under the radar. Now, however, Porsche is offering a stealthier alternative in the form of the new Touring package for its high-strung two-door. Following in the foot steps of the updated 2018 911 GT3 introduced earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, the Touring package promises a purist’s approach to going quick. For starters, the old look-at-me aero in back was replaced with a far more understated trailing lip, drawing its design inspiration from the 911 Carrera. Inside, there’s oodles of leather added everywhere. What’s more, the GT3 Touring is only offered with a six-speed manual transmission. Cue enthusiast celebration.

This latest Touring Package is a nod to the past equipment package offered on the 1973 Carrera RS, but adds a touch of modernization on top. “This variant is aimed at fans of high-quality sports cars who particularly value an understated appearance and classic driving enjoyment,” says Porsche. The GT3 Touring Package is offered in conjunction with practically every other option on the 911 GT3 table, with the exception of the Clubsport and Alcantara lines. That means the branded ceramic brakes, Chrono Package, wheel options, and similar stuff is all fair game. The Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package is available now for 152,416 euros in Germany, or $143,600 in the U.S., matching prices for the standard model.

PostHeaderIcon A Sad Sight: Cars Victimized by Mother Nature as Hurricane Harvey Ripped Through Texas

News surrounding Hurricane Harvey has been constantly flowing since the Category Three storm poured trillions of gallons of rainwater onto the coast of Texas over several days. Metro Huston and its surrounding areas are among the hardest hit. Among the more than 66 people dead and an estimated 44,000 homes flooded, nearly a million vehicles were lost to flood waters.

Images tell the clearest story, with photos of submerged cars lining once-busy Interstates and the aftermath of muddy water soaking into every nook and void within a car’s interior. Of the photos we’ve seen, the saddest are of antique and performance cars, including a vintage Porsche 911, several Corvettes and Vipers, and even a few late-model Ferraris. Of course, a flooded vehicle is legally required to be listed as such on its title, warning would-be buyers about its time under water. While we’re happy to see vintage and high-dollar vehicles get restored and retitled appropriately, some flood cars will be shadily repaired and sold on the pre-owned market with no indication to the buyer. This is most commonly done with average vehicles like pickups, SUVs, and family cars. The most recent large-scale case of this happening was Hurricane Sandy that hit New York and New Jersey in 2012. Hurricane Harvey will undoubtedly see the same illegal activity in its wake.

Unfortunately, we expect to see similar photos from Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

PostHeaderIcon Missed Out on the Cool Porsche 911 R? You’ll be Able to Buy One Soon

Introduced in 2016, the 911 R is arguably one of the greatest sports cars Porsche has ever built. Essentially a wingless GT3 with a manual transmission, it was designed as the ultimate purist 911 and it was received with great enthusiasm. Interest was so high that all 911 units were sold before the car’s official launch, despite a $184,900 sticker that was $9,000 higher than that of the 911 GT3. What’s more, the 911 R began to fetch more than $1 million on the used-car market after only a couple of months on the road. All told, it was way too exclusive to become a proper purist sports car since only a few rich customers had access to it. But things could change in the near future.

According to Porsche R&D boss Michael Steiner, the German firm plans on launching a purist version of the 911 with a regular production run. Speaking to Autocar at the launch of the new Cayenne, he said that Stuttgart sees “potential for more purist versions of sports cars with no limitation” on production numbers. This could mean that Porsche might introduce a model similar to the 911 R as a regular member of the Porsche family instead of a highly limited edition that would send prices through the roof and leave many enthusiasts out of the picture.

PostHeaderIcon Budget Direct Renders 9 Everyday Cars With F1 Style

We love it when we get our hands on a fresh batch of renderings. Sometimes, it’s lifelike speculation on some hotly anticipated next-gen model, while other times, it’s an imaginative mash-up of the unexpected. This particular set of renderings (nine of ‘em total) falls firmly into the latter category, mixing everyday rides like the Toyota Prius and classic Ford Mustang with the styling cues inspired by Formula 1. The images come courtesy of our friends over at Budget Direct, and long story short, we think they look awesome.

Of course, this opens up possibilities to a whole range of F1-themed rides. Never before has a Smart car looked so good, or a Jeep looked so quick, or a Prius looked so desirable. Of course, there are a few sports cars tossed in for good measure, like the Audi R8, Porsche 911, and Subaru WRX, all of which make the transition into the world of high-performance a little more easily. Read on for a breakdown on each, and don’t forget to post your favorite in the comments below, plus your suggestions for other street models that need the F1-treatment.

PostHeaderIcon Expensive Braided Carbon Wheels for Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series

As if Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, costing several hundred thousand Euros including an 80 grand paint job, wasn’t exclusive enough, the German sports car maker announced the launch of a new high-end option for this model. It’s a set of 20 inch braided carbon fiber wheels, available as an option from the beginning of 2018 for 15,232 EUR!

You don’t spend that 15 grand on looks, that’s for sure. We know of 500 Euro rims that look nicer than these things. No, with braided carbon fiber wheels you pay for technical excellence, namely less weight and greater strength. The wheels in the20 inch set built for Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series are around 8.5 kilograms lighter than standard alloy wheels, which is a reduction of 20 per cent. They are also 20 per cent stronger, meaning they provide better grip and stability greater agility, and improved acceleration and braking performance.

Though its technologically advanced, Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series’s braided carbon wheels are structurally simple. It all comes down to material really. You got the rim base which is made from braided carbon fibre by what is currently the world’s largest carbon fibre braiding machine with a diameter of approximately nine metres, and the wheel centre  made from carbon-fibre fabric featuring cutting and assembling over 200 individual components. The assembled wheel is impregnated with resin and pre-hardened at high pressure and high temperatures. After it’s properly cooled, the center lock is assembled and a protective layer of lacquer is applied. The new carbon wheel is made from a total of 18 kilometres carbon fibre or eight square metres of carbon-fibre fabric.

PostHeaderIcon Would You Pay Nearly $100,000 For A Paint Job?

The price for vanity can run deep, especially when we’re talking about a car like the Porsche 911 Turbo S. The base price for one here in the U.S. already adds up to $190,700, and that’s without all the bells and whistles that can run costs up to comfortably north of $200,000. Now if you really want your 911 Turbo S to stand out, there is a color option called Phyton Green “Chromaflair” that will no doubt get the job done. The only caveat is that availing of this color option will set you close to an extra $100,000. Do the math and that price tag is more than half the cost of the actual 911 Turbo S. Vanity, ladies and gentlemen.

Porsche Exclusive didn’t say how it got to that specific price tag for the paint job, nor will it ever, given the number of trade secrets that are likely involved in creating that exclusive color. What we do know, thanks to an Instagram post by PTSRS, is that the “Chromaflair” treatment is also available in three other color variants, including blue, gold, and violet. According to PTSRS, the violet Chromaflair version had been on display in the past at Porsche’s factory in Zuffenheisen, joining the Phyton Green version that was showcased at the Nurburgring recently. These exclusive paint finishes may not be the most expensive add-ons in the market – imagine the options Bugatti’s offering for the Chiron – but they’re no less going to burn serious holes in your wallet.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow by Edo Competition

Just in case it isn’t abundantly clear by now, the Porsche 911 Turbo S is a legend. It’s regarded as one of the most iconic models in history, as it has been ever since it was launched in the market 54 years ago. The sports car’s appeal is unlikely to lose its luster anytime soon, and it’s that particular timeless quality about it that has made the 911 such a popular model in the aftermarket tuning circle. The current-generation 911 has seen its fair share of programs from tuning heavyweights like TechArt, TopCar, and Gemballa. Now it’s edo competition’s turn to get in on the action and the German tuner didn’t disappoint with a 675-horsepower creation called the 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow.

It’s a fancy name for a fancy tuning program for a fancy sports car. It also happens to be potent beyond words, not to mention capable of achieving incredible amounts of speed and power that fits into the performance legacy of the Porsche 911. It’s fitting, too, that this program comes from edo competition, the same tuner that’s responsible for some of the most impressive tuning creations in history. Remember what it did to the Ferrari Enzo all those years ago? I don’t expect this creation for the 911 Turbo S to match that in power and performance, but I do know that it doesn’t need to. The Porsche 911 Turbo S is its own unicorn, and edo competition did it a solid by sprinkling its pixie dust all over it.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Cabriolet

Updated for the 2017 model year, the 991-generation is living its final years on the market, with the 992-gen version reportedly set to arrive in time for the 2019 model year. Not much is known about the upcoming sports car, but prototypes have been spotted testing on public roads as early as 2016. Arguably the biggest news concerning the redesigned 911 is that it will use a new modular platform with more flexibility as far as drivetrains go. Word has it the new architecture will also be used in the next-generation 718 Boxster and Cayman, as well as in the next-gen Audi R8 and upcoming Lamborghini models.

The 992-gen 911 will continue to use an all-turbo engine lineup – as introduced with the most recent facelift – but it’s also set to receive a hybrid drivetrain for the very first time. Although this rumor has yet to be confirmed by Stuttgart, electrification is a natural step for the 911, especially since Porsche is already offering hybrid version of the Panamera and Cayenne. Stay tuned for updates on the upcoming 911 Cabriolet and make sure you read the speculative review below to find out what we already know about this car.

Updated 07/17/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming 911 Cabriolet out for a new testing session during cold winter conditions in Europe.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Wants Us To Believe That Walter Rohl And Mark Webber Were Left Speechless After Driving The Porsche 911 GT2 RS: Video

Racing legend and Porsche senior race driver Walter Rohl has seen his fair share of iconic Porsche models over the years. Suffice to say, he’s not so easily impressed anymore. Same goes for former Formula One and Porsche racer Mark Webber. Together, the two combine for almost 50 years worth of racing experience, so for them to be left speechless and catching their breath at the same time must involve something completely epic and downright mental. Is it too early treat the Porsche 911 GT2 RS in those terms because both Rohl and Webber were left at a loss after taking the 911 GT2 RS out for a drive?

The reactions of both Rohl and Webber were captured in a promotional video for the 911 GT2 RS, so there is the possibility that they could have been instructed to react the way they did in front of the cameras. But it’s not like the 911 GT2 RS is a slouch to begin with. The reactions of the two racing icons could have been legitimate, especially because the 911 GT2 RS has been everything that Porsche has hyped it up to be. It’s not just about the car packing 700 horsepower and earning the title of being the fastest and most powerful production 911 in history. It’s not even about the sports car’s ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 211 mph. It’s about the intensity and emotion of driving a car that’s shaping up to become one of the most iconic Porsche models of all time. The looks on the faces of Rohl and Webber say it all.

PostHeaderIcon Have Wing, Will Travel – The History of the Porsche 911 GT3

To many, the Porsche 911 is the quintessential sports car, offering the perfect balance of grip, feel, downforce, and power. This is not a model for the timid or the foolish – the rear-engine, RWD drivetrain layout will quickly turn on any driver unfamiliar with handling eager rotation, and the output produced by the right pedal is more than enough to get you into big trouble in no time at all. But while the standard 911 is certainly an impressive machine, it’s the high-spec variants the truly make the nameplate shine. Enter the 911 GT3, a modern interpretation of the formula originally laid out by the legendarily good 911 Carrera RS. The specs on the GT3 read like a how-to for enthusiast cars – it’s lightweight, stripped down, and no nonsense, with a high-revving naturally aspirated powerplant behind the driver and even the option for a manual gearbox. The terms “track ready” and “race proven” come readily to mind.

The end result for the pilot is an extremely pure driving experience, like the distilled essence of performance, a machine that still feels mechanical, eager, and challenging. Not only that, but the GT3 is still driveable on the street, presenting relatively few issues when doing normal, everyday “car stuff.” And it’s for these reasons you can call us fans. Read on for a little background and history, as well as the facts and figures behind the badge.

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 Exclusive Porsche Design 911 GT2 RS Chronograph Is A Nice Add-On To The Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS has been tipped as the fastest and most powerful production 911 in history. It’s also the most expensive one with a starting price tag of $294,250. The good news is that those 1,000 customers who managed to reserve a slot for the 911 GT2 RS will also get some freebies along the way for their trouble. One such freebie is the Porsche Design 911 GT2 RS Chronograph, the first-ever watch from Porsche Design whose clock movement was developed in-house.

As with most premium watches, the 911 GT2 RS Chronograph strikes quite an impression. Design elements from the actual 911 GT2 RS were used to highlight the unique look of the watch, from the tungsten winding rotor that was inspired by the wheel patterns of the sports car to the carbon fiber clock face and the display the takes from the design of the tachometer. Functionally, the chronograph features a caliber 01.200 that includes a flyback function and a load-path-optimized movement bridge. Oh, and it also comes with a titanium case just in case the level of premium exclusivity isn’t evident enough. The Porsche Design 911 GT2 RS Chronograph is a nice ancillary add-on to a car that packs 700 horsepower and is limited to just 1,000 units. Too bad then that even if some of you want one, you’ll be hard-pressed to get it now that the sports car that it comes with are all accounted for.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT2 RS – New Vs Old

The GT2 has been the range-topping model of the 911 range for nearly 25 years now, having been introduced in 1993. However, Porsche’s hardcore sports car hasn’t been around for every model year, with each generation discontinued after a short while on the market. So while the GT2 nameplate turns 24 in 2017, it was actually in production for some 12 years before the fourth-generation model arrived. Not only that, but it was also built in limited numbers that sold out extremely quickly, especially in recent years. All told, it’s not surprising that the latest GT2 RS was so anticipated and that its unveiling at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed created so much fuss.

But is the new 911 GT2 a significant improvement over its predecessor? Given that it’s based on the latest-generation 911, it’s safe to assume that the answer is yes, but is it notably different or are wee looking at a revised design with a more powerful engine? We will find out just that in the comparison below, where the 997- and 991-generation GT2 are going head to head for the ultimate 911 face-off.

PostHeaderIcon Configure the Porsche 911 GT2 RS you can’t afford

Expected to make a comeback after five years, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS returned to the market at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It took an unofficial unveiling at a tech show and numerous reports about its performance, but it’s finally here. And as it usually happens, the official launch came with a new online configurator. Sure, I could argue that the limited-edition GT2 RS is already sold out and the configurator is pretty much useless now, but we can at least have some fun with it.

Options are very similar to the 911 GT3, meaning you can customize a lot of features, both inside and out. You can also add performance-enhancing parts, as well as opt for Porsche’s already iconic Delivery Experience program, which delivers the car to Atlanta in the U.S. and Zuffenhausen or Leipzig in Germany. So whether you’ve already ordered your GT2 RS or you just want to build the dream car you can’t afford, let’s have a closer look at the features.

PostHeaderIcon The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Wants To Break The Seven-Minute Mark Around The Nürburgring

Whether or not you believe in the significance of the Nürburgring lap time record, what’s important is that automakers thing highly enough of it that they’re willing to make chest-puffing claims about their car’s ability to tackle the 12.2-mile race track. Porsche is no different and it has proven as much by being one of the most prominent brands to uphold the sanctity of the Nürburgring production lap time record. It once held that title with the Porsche 918 Spyder’s blistering lap time of 6:57, but now it’s calling its own shot by claiming that the new 911 GT2 RS will be able to join the hypercar as the only two Porsche models in history to post a sub-seven-minute lap time.

Frank-Steffen Walliser, the man behind Porsche’s GT program, dropped some hints of the new sports car’s performance abilities, telling Motoring that the new 911 GT2 RS is “no seven at the Nürburgring,” before adding that fans will have to “wait and see” and give the company “some time” to “check it.” It’s not exactly the most convincing way to call your own shot, but Walliser did say that the company will use the same exact specification of the engine and tires as the production car. No gimmicks here, apparently. There’s no timetable set for when Porsche plans to do the 911 GT2 RS’ Nürburgring run, but rest assured, all eyes will be on Stuttgart’s most powerful production 911 when it does set off for that lap.

PostHeaderIcon Your Must-Have Porsche 911 GT2 RS Wallpapers

We’ve all been craving a new 911 GT2 since the 991.2 generation kicked off a couple of years ago. It took a while, and two debuts (if you count the E3 debut) to finally get here, but here we are, and we couldn’t be happier. Just look at it. Race-bred, road-going, German goodness at its best. The best aerodynamics in the game, with looks that would give any self-respecting car enthusiast a sizeable stiffy. And, if the looks alone aren’t enough for you, there’s that Turbo S-derived 3.8-liter flat-six that’s good for an astounding 700 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 553 pound-feet of pavement chewing, Nurburgring-terrorizing torque.
It’ll put you in your seat hard on takeoff and get your ass up to 60 mph in a matter of just 2.7 seconds while aiming for a top speed that is officially rated at 211 mph. For the record, that’s 0.8-seconds faster to 60 and 6 mph faster overall when compared to its predecessor. Time to trade in, folks!

In Honor of the finest 911 to roll out of Germany this year, or any year for that matter, we’ve decided to lump together the best wallpapers we have so far – just so we can all celebrate the greatness that is the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. And, that’s the best we can do, considering the word is that all 1,000 units have been sold. And, since Porsche is vetting its purchasers, there probably won’t be one on the used market for a while either. So, the next best thing is a sexy shot of it greeting you on your desktop every morning. You like the front end? We got you! You like the booty? We’ve got some of that too. Keep on reading to get your satisfying dose of 911 wallpaper goodness.

2018 Porsche 911 gt2 rs-0

So Porsche finally revealed the highly anticipated fastest 911 of all time today in form of 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS. It’s a 700 super GT with a factory price of $293,200 (which means it’s definitely a half a million dollar car out in the open market), but interestingly Porsche has mentioned no production limit for it. 

Still, there’s probably no more than 1,000 people in the world who would spend that kind of money on a 911, or want such ferocious turn of speed. The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is capable of accelerating form 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), and Porsche promises it is not that hard to drive, either, thanks to a racing chassis, rear axle steering and Ultra High Performance (UHP) tires.

2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is a lightweight car, relatively, tipping the scale 3,241 pounds (1,470) with a full tank of fuel. Still, there is an optional Weissach package which reduces weight by nearly 40 pounds, thanks to extensive use of naked carbon fiber (roof and anti-roll bars as well as the end links on both axles) and forged magnesium wheels. This package costs an extra $31,000. You can also opt for Chrono Package which adds a performance app for measuring lap times and such.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Ruined Porsche’s Big Day by Leaking Official Images of the 911 GT2 RS

Porsche has been pretty tight-lipped about its new 911 GT2 RS. Sure; we all saw it at the 2017 Xbox E3 event just a few weeks ago, but once everything was said and done, Porsche tried to pretend that it didn’t exist. This became more than evident when various publications tried to reach out for comment regarding rumors that all 1,000 examples had already been spoken for. With that in mind, the GT2 RS is set to make its “official debut” this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Before that could happen, however, someone decided to leak some official images, like the ones shown above, on Rennlist early this morning.

Now, it’s pretty clear that nothing has changed since we saw the new GT2 RS at E3, but this time around we get a look at the rear (the only rear shot we had before was from Forza 7 pre-alpha gameplay) and finally get to see what’s going on inside – at least to an extent, anyway. The most notable thing about the interior is the perfect split of red and black coloring. The headlights, A-pillars, B-pillars, central arm rest, seat centers, and steering wheel are all wrapped in red Alcantara, while the dash looks to get a healthy dose of black Alcantara mixed in with some leather and red contrast stitching. There are also red accents on the door trim panels and the gear shifter, while carbon fiber trim adorns the seat chassis, seat side bumpers, and the face trim of the dash. Finally, there is red embroidery on the front of the headrests and a pretty gnarly looking roll cage behind the front seats.
Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. But, let’s talk more about what else we can expect.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Ruined Porsche’s Big Day by Leaking Official Images of the 911 GT2 RS

Porsche has been pretty tight-lipped about its new 911 GT2 RS. Sure; we all saw it at the 2017 Xbox E3 event just a few weeks ago, but once everything was said and done, Porsche tried to pretend that it didn’t exist. This became more than evident when various publications tried to reach out for comment regarding rumors that all 1,000 examples had already been spoken for. With that in mind, the GT2 RS is set to make its “official debut” this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Before that could happen, however, someone decided to leak some official images, like the ones shown above, on Rennlist early this morning.
