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 2017 Six Hours of the Nurburgring – Race Report

After a shorter-than-previously post-Le Mans break, the World Endurance Championship returned with the German round hosted, as ever, by the legendary Nurburgring. This time around, the race came amid looming concerns regarding the top LMP1-Hybrid class which is potentially in jeopardy. In spite of ACO’s early-year announcements that it will stick with hybrid technology, as stated in the new-for-2020 rule book, factory teams might step out as early as next year. Porsche is poised to take a decision on whether they will commit to their original plan – that of also doing the 2018 season – or if they will pull the plug one year short, at the end of 2017. Toyota, which had previously confirmed its commitment all the way through 2019, might, in the wake of a potential Porsche withdrawal, reconsider its position as well.

This means that, in the worst case scenario, we could be left with no works teams to fill the P1-H class next year and with a very uncertain P1-L presence to round up the debacle. That’s because, despite announcements from Dallara, Ginetta and Perrinn, there have been very few firm confirmations from teams that will actually run these new cars. Thus, the optimistic ACO-fueled figures of 6-8 cars might actually be just half, and with no P1-H, we might witness a very sorry sight at next year’s Le Mans.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 718 Boxster GTS

First introduced in 1996 as the company’s entry-level sports car, the Porsche Boxster is now in its third generation, which was launched in 2012. Redesigned to include styling cues from the 911 and 918 Spyder, the third-gen Boxster also received a new, more rigid chassis, revised engine, and a small weight reduction compared to its predecessor. The engine lineup included three flat-six units at first, but this changed in 2016 when a comprehensive facelift replaced them with smaller, turbocharged flat-four powerplants. The update also brought a new name, with the “718” denomination added to the “Boxster” badge as a tribute to Porsche iconic race car from the late 1950s. With both the base model and the higher-performance S version already in showrooms, Porsche has two more variants to launch before the fourth-generation car steps in to replace the current one, one of which is the GTS.

Spotted testing in the wild since 2016, the GTS is one of two higher performance versions of the Boxster. While not as aggressive and exclusive as the Spyder, the GTS is indeed a significant upgrade over the Boxster S. Lighter, more powerful, and fitted with extra gear, it gives owner access to more speed and quicker sprint times. Not much is officially known about the upcoming 718 GTS at this point, but its design is far from a mystery given that the test cars are lightly camouflaged. However, the engine is a different story with two scenario discussed in recent months. Will the GTS continue to use the naturally aspirated six-cylinder or will it get a turbocharged flat-four? How much extra power will it get over the Boxster S? These are the two most important questions that revolve around the new GTS and I plan to answer them in the review below.

Updated 07/18/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming 718 Boxster GTS out for a new testing session, this time completely uncovered.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Panamera Stingray GTR by TopCar

It’s been a while since we last saw a prominent aftermarket company develop a program for the Porsche Panamera. In fact, ever since the Porsche unveiled the second-generation Panamera this time last year, the tuning world has been surprisingly quiet on this front. Well, consider this one of the first tastes of a heavily modified, second-generation Porsche Panamera. And to the shock of no one, it comes from TopCar, one of the most prominent Porsche tuners in the business.

The Russian tuner has worked on Porsche models longer than most tuners have been around. It’s responsible for the Stinger program for the 911, the Vantage program for the Cayenne, and a host of other works for other Porsche models, including the Macan, the Boxster, and the Cayman. Now, TopCar is setting its sights on a next-generation program for the next-generation Panamera. The kit is what you’d expect from TopCar. It’s got extensive aerodynamics that borders on over-the-top. It’s got a lavish interior offering that includes all the premium materials a customer can think of, including 24-karat gold. And it’s got a significant engine upgrade. In other words, it’s a TopCar tuning kit for the Panamera that owners of the luxury saloon will have a hard time saying no to, provided that TopCar’s tuning methods are in sync with what they’re looking for.

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 Porsche Cayenne

Porsche ushered in the second-generation Cayenne for the 2010 model year, and by 2013 the Cayenne lineup had expanded to include hybrid and diesel-powered models. By the time we turned the calendar to 2015, it was time for the Cayenne to take on a facelift, bringing lots of visual changes to the exterior, updated powertrains, and several interior upgrades. Despite that extensive facelift taking place, Porsche has been busy developing the next-generation Cayenne, and we just received spy shots of it doing some cold weather testing with very little camo.

The most important thing about the next generation is that the Cayenne will be underpinned by the new MLB SUV platform that has already been used on the Audi Q7 and the Bentley Bentayga, which means we should see a significant drop in weight over previous models. Outside of the new platform, the Cayenne shouldn’t change too much. We expect so see more of an evolution of the current design language as opposed to a complete redesign, and we should see some updated technology on the inside.

We expect the new Cayenne to debut next year as a 2018 model, but with the new model already testing without Camo, we may see it sooner than later. Until we get more details about the next-gen Cayenne, let’s take a closer look at these spy shots.

Updated 07/14/2017: Our spy photographers caught a pre-production Cayenne

PostHeaderIcon Mark Webber Calls Porsche 911 GT2 RS “King Kong”: Video

Mark Webber is certainly no stranger to fast machinery. The 40-year-old Australian boasts a long, illustrious career in motorsport, piloting top-tier rides in a variety of series and classes, including the Porsche 919 Hybrid in the World Endurance Championship and several bids at Le Mans, not to mention 42 podium finishes in Formula 1. With a record like that, mere mortals like you and I should take note when a car impresses Webber with its performance. The latest Porsche 911 GT2 RS is one such vehicle, bringing enough heat to hit 208 mph at the Nurburgring and earning some high praise from the championship-winning driver.

That’s the headline from this brief video from our friends over at Driving.ca. The rest of the 2-minute, 22-second clip includes Webber’s thoughts on life after racing, and what he’s doing to keep busy. “The adrenaline, the emotion, the team spirit, all that stuff, which of course, you love and miss to a degree, but I don’t miss the risk taking.” Although Webber is no longer in the cockpit, he’s sticking with Porsche and assisting with the brand’s street car development and racing efforts in other ways. Webber also offers his thoughts on the state of F1, saying “drivers still have to be the heroes, it’s about them, but they need to be rewarded. We can’t make the sport too safe and sterile. Its gotta be gladiatorial, there has to be an element of something that people just can’t do.”

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 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Launched in 2015, the 991-generation GT3 RS was a significant update over the GT3 and a big departure from the previous car design-wise, having borrowed base bodywork from the Turbo model. On the other hand, the 4.0-liter inline-six was pretty much identical to the 997-generation GT3 RS 4.0 model, as was the 500-horsepower output, a bit of letdown for those expecting a more powerful car. This minor inconvenience will be fixed with the upgraded GT3 RS, which should gain a more potent engine now that the standard GT3 has been updated to the same 4.0-liter engine.

Unleashed on public roads in early 2017, the upcoming 911 GT3 RS looks ready to hit dealerships by the end of the year. Although the rear section is still based on the pre-facelift 911, the front fascia has already been updated to the fresh design and Porsche is probably already testing the new underpinnings. Notable changes should include revised aerodynamics, new tech inside the cabin, and a more powerful flat-six unit. However, while the GT3 RS has been the most powerful iteration of the 991-generation 911 and will continue to sit at the top of the range with the revised engine, it will no longer be the most potent model at the end of the 911’s current life cycle. The new Porsche just launched a GT2 RS, which has significantly more powerful turbocharged engine. Nonetheless, the GT3 RS will remain the ultimate naturally aspirated track-toy with a Porsche badge at least until the next-generation model arrives in a few years. Expect the revised 911 GT3 RS to debut in September 2017 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Updated 04/07/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 RS out for testing on public roads close to the Nürburgring.

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.

GT2 RS Color

limited edition, top-shelf versions of any car do not usually get much in the way of options and trims. Sure, there is the ‘special’ treatment you can have through the brand’s exclusive department, but in terms of off-the-shelf items, their options list are usually pretty dry because,well, they don’t need to please people in order to sell. That is, however, not at all the case with the new 2018 Porsche GT2 RS.

Now, the new GT2 RS sure is an expensive car, with a starting price of $293K before tax and delivery and stuff. But Porsche is apparently not putting a cap on its production like they usually do with these high-end models such as GT3 or R or Sport Classic. That is in spite of the fact that the 2018 Porsche GT2 RS is the most vicious, most powerful, and most track-oriented version of the 911 to date. They have released an online configurator for this car that highlights the depth of personalization options available for the RS through one simple fact: by the time your are done putting bells and whistles on the car and get one of the fancy paint jobs (shown below), the bill could as much as $70K above the base price!

This probably won’t sit well with Porsche purists seeing as they believe an RS 911 is to be appreciated for its driving and handling and speed. These two-tone paint jobs and trendy wheels and fancy interior trim, those are for sissies who are more concerned about the appearances than substance. And if that’s the case, why get a 700 horsepower racing machine with an overwhelming rate of engineering excellence? No, cars like the 2018 Porsche GT2 RS should not pander to the customers. They should offer one, maybe two different trims and say that’s it, that’s all you guys get and you should be thankful. But obviously Porsche is running a business and what they ultimately want is to make fat stacks. And if they have to be all colorful and trendy in order to make them, so be it.

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.

Other cool highlights of the 2018 GT2 RS include a two-tone interior with red and black leather and Alcantara, PSM stability manager with ESC OFF and ESC+TC OFF functions, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), and an exclusive titanium Porsche Design timepiece, one for each buyer.

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.
