PostHeaderIcon If You’re Waiting for a 992-Gen Porsche 911 Hybrid, Don’t Hold Your Breath

Were you excited to see the new Porsche Carrera S and Carrera 4S at the Los Angeles Auto Show? Who wasn’t? The eighth-generation of the 911 is more refined than ever and is all set to carry the rich legacy of this renowned model. However, another bit of news that grabbed eyeballs is that there might be a hybrid version of the 911. Before you get your hopes high, the 911 hybrid is still at least four years away.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911

Just like its predecessor, the 2020 Porsche 911 992 is a mix of old an new. While it rides on new underpinnings and features state-of-the-art technology, its design harks back to previous generations, including the original 911. The new sports car brings a few innovations to the market, but its most notable feature remains the fact that it’s the first 911 to not have a naturally aspirated engine.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Porsche 911

It’s been a long time coming, but the new, 2020 Porsche 911 992 is finally here. Sure, it hasn’t changed dramatically compared to the 991 generation, or the generation that came before it, but that’s kind of the beauty of it. It’s still every bit a Porsche 911, and the legacy remains intact for another seven years or so. Or at least until, arguably, Porsche develops a hybrid version of the 911 in a few years or so. But, we’ll leave that for another time. For now, we want to honor the 992-gen Porsche by showcasing our favorite wallpaper. You can download it for free to display on your home or work computer. Or, if you don’t like our favorite, we’ve included a decent gallery down below with even more cool wallpaper choices.

PostHeaderIcon Performance Comparison: 2019 Porsche 911 991 vs 2020 Porsche 911 992

The new-for-2020 Porsche 911 992-gen has finally been unveiled in L.A., and it’s impressive, although you might not be able to tell with the naked eye. That’s why we’re taking a decisively geeky look at the performance stats that make up the 992-generation of, arguably, Germany’s most famous sports car and we pit them against the numbers of the old 991 model. Here’s a hint: the new one is better!

PostHeaderIcon Apparently Porsche is Considering a 911-Based SUV

Would you be ready for Porsche to make a high-riding 911? Well, it turns out the idea is something being considered, according to a report quoting a Member of the Executive Board of Sales and Marketing.

PostHeaderIcon The All-New Porsche 911 Proves That The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

There aren’t that many cars in the world that are as important to an automaker as the 911 is to Porsche. When you think of Porsche, you think of the 911. It comes as little surprise then that Porsche pulled out all the stops when it officially debuted the eighth-generation 911 at the Porsche Experience Center, days ahead of its appearance at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Orders for the eighth-generation Porsche 911 Carrera S are already open, though don’t expect deliveries to take place until the summer of 2019. The price of the 2020 911 Carrera S starts at $113,200, while the 2020 911 Carrera 4S will be offered from $120,600. Expect an extra charge of $1,050 to account for delivery, processing and handling fees.

PostHeaderIcon Quick Visual Comparison: 2019 Porsche 911 991 vs 2020 Porsche 911 992

The 992-generation Porsche 911 is nearly upon us. Set to break cover at the2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new-generation 911 will bring a new yet still familiar design forward, new technology under the skin, and a crop of revised turbocharged engines. While the oily bits are still being kept under wraps, the exterior design is no longer a mystery. What has changed for the new generation styling-wise? Find out in the comparison below.

PostHeaderIcon Check out the 2019 Porsche 911 Before You’re Supposed to see it

What you’re seeing in these pictures you weren’t supposed to see just yet, although you’ve already kind of seen it in numerous other spy shots. It’s the new-for-2019 Porsche 911 992 that will finally be revealed before the L.A. Auto Show tomorrow. These are, apparently, the first official pictures of the new car and they’re here because, obviously, they were leaked.

We usually aren’t taken aback by the design of a new 911 and this eighth embodiment of the German sports car is no different, especially since we’ve seen so much of it in the past couple of years. Basically, every inch of the bigger and bolder 992 has been photographed by snappers around Europe and beyond so these official pictures bestowed upon us in poor quality, won’t set the world alight, but they’re still worth a few looks, like anything 911-related.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Le Mans Classic Clubsport by Paul Stephens

Porsche specialist Paul Stephens recently unveiled his latest creation called the Le Mans Classic Clubsport. It is a bespoke Porsche 911 based around the Porsche 911 G-series chassis and remodeled to take the shape of possibly the most astonishing restomod you can imagine.

I know that right now the Singer name from Rob Dickinson rings in your ears, but this is a slightly different piece of engineering compared with anything coming from Dickinson kitchen. Now, I was particularly curious to find out what actually makes this Le Mans Classic Clubsport so special, so I reached out to Paul Stephens who told me a thing or two about his newest car.

First of all, let me tell you that Paul is a proper car guy. Not only that, he is a proper Porsche enthusiast. All the way back from 9 years of age. I am not joking. His first miles were in a Land Rover he drove when he was 6. Three years later, he sat in a 911. A friend of his dad lent him the keys, and he just went for it. Love in an instant!

That was the start of a long love story that got him into race cars, into Porsches and now into making exceptional restomods based around the Porsche G-series chassis.

PostHeaderIcon There Are So Many Variations of the Porsche 911, Even Porsche Had to Make a Video to Explain Them

Porsche sells a wide array of different versions of their 911 sports car, and the sheer variety may seem daunting for somebody not intimately acquainted with their naming strategy. But the automaker has stepped in to address this by putting out an informative video detailing the way they name their cars and how to more easily understand what 911 you’re looking at based on what is written on the back of it.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 007

A Porsche Art Car isn’t something unheard of, but this is one of the strangest of them all. Designed by Peter Klasen, a German artist part of the ’La Nouvelle Figuration’ movement, it is an early 911 modified for racing with about 192-horsepower on tap and is named ’Project 007’. And no, there are no links to that secret agent.

Early 911s are revered for their purity in terms of the construction and the classic design of the body. The original 911 (901) is a Butzi Porsche design whose lines are still relevant on modern Porsches that we see and hear today. This particular 911, though, is something that we don’t see every day. Its colorful livery was drawn up by Klasen in 2009, and it’s similar, in terms of the color palette and some of the themes and elements displayed, with previous liveries he’s done.

Maybe Klausen’s most prominent work in the automotive world is a racing livery that adorned a Porsche 962 CK6 entered by German outfit Kremer Racing in the 1990 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The German artist also designed the red-white-and-blue livery of a Porsche 911 (993) GT2 entered by French team Sonauto in the French GT Championship in the late ’90s.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Carrera RS

The Porsche 911 Carrera RS is an exercise in reducing a formula to its purest form. It was built as a lighter, faster, and more powerful version of the 964-generation Carrera 2 and it stands as a spiritual successor of the magnificent 911 Carrera 2.7 RS from the early ‘70s.

The Benjamin Dimson-penned Porsche 911 (964) debuted in 1989 and featured a rounder body shape in tune with the times which was a clear, but not profoundly radical, departure from the design of the previous 911 that was still tracing its roots back to the original Ferdinand Alexander Porsche-drawn model launched in 1963.

For 1992, Porsche launched the Carrera RS in Europe which was, in essence, a road-legal version of the Carrera Cup racing cars. This single-make series was on the bill of the Formula 1 World Championship weekends as support races in between F1 sessions.

The 911 Carrera RS never officially made it across the Atlantic and into the U.S. market. With that being said, 45 cars that were meant to be used in a Carrera Cup U.S. series that never materialized did trickle down to dealerships and were quietly sold in 1993 in the shadow of the RS America which deserves its own review as it isn’t identical to the European RS.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR Become the Fastest Road-Legal Car to Tackle the Nürburgring

Nürburgring lap records are always en vogue amongst the big sports car makes, but nowadays, their popularity seems to be growing even more. The latest comes from Porsche, which just claimed the title of Fastest Road-Legal Car to ever lap the ‘Ring, with the 911 GT2 RS MR circling the treacherous German racetrack in 6 minutes, 40.3 seconds.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Classic’s “Project Gold” Brought in $3 Million at Auction – All For a Good Cause

Porsche turned 70 this year, and the automaker decided to celebrate it by auctioning off the Porsche 911 Turbo Classic Series – a collection of 51 vehicles – at RM Sotheby’s “The Porsche 70th Anniversary Auction 2018” event.
The highlight of the auction was a 993 that was finished in flashy Golden Yellow Metallic paint. After nearly 40 bids, it’s destined to go to a new home with a price tag of €2.7 million or about $3.1 million at current exchange rates.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Turbo By Manhart

In the good tradition of the German tuning scene, German tuner Manhart reached out to all four astounding Germanic manufacturers whose cars it is modifying. I am writing here about the likes of Audi, BMW, Mercedes, and Porsche. The last car Manhart put its magical touches on is a Porsche 911 Turbo. As Manhart usually focuses on tuning Audi, BMW, and Mercedes, the company revealing this Porsche project is quite surprising. Nevertheless, Manhart made it worthwhile. The new car is simply astounding.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 992 caught testing next to the 991

Porsche is good to us these days. Many people have been discussing the differences between the current 991-generation 911 and the upcoming 992-generation 2020 911 and, now, Porsche took both out for a spin. This means we’ve got pictures of them together we can analyze all the little differences since the 992 is basically not wearing any camouflage.

We’ve been talking about and seeing the new Porsche 911 992 for over a year now. We’ve even caught glances of the Turbo version and the GT3 version so there’s not much room for speculation before Porsche finally reveals their baby at the L.A. Auto Show which will kick off on November 30th.

But, before that, Porsche has offered us the chance to contrast and compare the outgoing generation with the new one. To make things easier for us, as the cars are almost identical, the old one is blue, and the new one is yellow. Thank God they didn’t go for two tints of opaque gray!

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Speedster Concept I vs Porsche 911 Speedster Concept II

Back in June, Porsche celebrated 70 years since it unveiled its first production car with a Speedster concept based on the current 911. Come October, and the German firm introduced a new concept car of the same variety, also stating that a limited-edition production car will follow in 2019. The two concepts are very similar, which made us wonder whether Porsche is trying to milk the Speedster ahead of its introduction as a production model.

Is this new concept a more production-ready version of the first car, which was already pretty close to a standard 911? Let’s find out by comparing the roadsters inside and out.

PostHeaderIcon Modern Porsche 935 attacks Monza Circuit

Porsche’s year-long anniversary party turned up an unexpected guest in the Porsche 935. The Stuttgart-based automaker reimagined the long-tailed 70’s icon with a modern design topped off by a retro livery, showcasing it in all its glory at Laguna Seca last month. Shortly after the 935’s debut, the racer took some test runs at the Monza racetrack in Italy where it was performing some test runs ahead of its highly anticipated launch. Porsche plans to build just 77 units of the reimagined “Moby Dick,” with each model priced at $817,000.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition

Porsche has added the 911 Targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition to its lineup. It’s got a huge name to go with a ridiculous price tag. This special edition comes as a surprise because the 2020 Porsche 911 is all set to debut next month in Los Angeles.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Turbo ’Ruf CTR’

The original RUF CTR, commonly known as the “Yellowbird”, outran the Ferrari F40 and the Porsche 959 from 0 to 100 mph and kept going all the way to a top speed of 213 mph. It was the fastest car of the ‘80s and, arguably, the most extreme road-going interpretation of the Porsche 911 Carerra at the time.

As a follow-up to the vicious BTR, the RUF CTR was even more insane. It used parts from the Porsche 962 Group C prototype racer, had lightened body panels, a gearbox built just for it, tires similar to those on the spaceship that was the 959 and a bright yellow paintjob that made it stand out and earned its nickname: Yellowbird.

Before Alois Ruf and the team set about building the CTR, the world’s fastest car was the Lamborghini Countach. Surely, with all the wings it had grown by the time it received four valves per cylinder in 1985, it looked the part. Sadly for the Italians, the more understated Ruf CTR blew by the Countach, and the Testarossa, and the 288 GTO and just about any other supercar you can think of. And Ruf themselves thought that they could’ve eeked more with longer gears.
