The Ultimate Find: 356 Roadster

Up on eBay is a 1960 Porsche 356 Roadster that had been parked in an airplane hangar in 1985 and left there for 24 years. The owner was 63 when he parked the car. The car appears to be complete and original, although a build sheet will need to be obtained to verify that the […]

The Only Porsche 911 Police Vehicle in the US?

It pays to be a police officer in Hoover, Alabama. They’re droppin’ it like it’s HOT in their drug bust Porsche 911. The Porsche 911 was being used to transport over $300,000 worth of cocaine when it was seized by police two years ago. Rather than auction it off, they decided to turn it into […]

Uber Porsche Geek Stuff

I was on the Porsche site yesterday looking for something for a post and stumbled across some sweet Porsche downloads. Each model (at least in the 911 lineup) has a Gallery section where you can download different lifestyle and motion images of the car in various sizes. Now I know this is hinting at what […]

Porsche Panamera Pricing Info and Interior Shots

In case you haven’t come across these on another car site, I thought I’d share some of my favorite Panamera shots to date. Jury is still out for me on the Panamera. It does promise to be a great ride in true Porsche fashion, but I suppose, like most people, I am initially adverse towards […]
