Memory Lane Bonus Edition

Alright, I couldn’t pass this one up. I was putting away the magazines I had used for this series and ran across this one. Of course it HAS to go into the series since it has a 911 Turbo Slantnose on the cover! Another issue of Excellence (obviously) from June 1988. Here are some articles […]

Dry-Sump on 2009 Porsche 911

Before you dismiss this as “too technical”, you have to watch the video. Porsche rigged up a test system for it’s engine that looks like it’d be more at home at your local carnival than at the Porsche factory (think tilt-a-whirl).

Porsche Winter Fantasy Camp

I have a confession to make. I’m sure it’s not going to surprise any other 911 owners out there. With all of the rain we get in the Northwest, it’s pretty common to have wet streets most of the winter. I have a buddy who used to have a 911, and he was a master […]

Porsche Convertible Sliding Off the Road

I can see driving a Porsche on the snow. No problem there. But driving a convertible, on the snow, with the top DOWN?! I don’t know that the heaters would be enough to make that enjoyable. I had to watch this a couple of times. Just great how they swing around the corner and slow […]

Weekly Porsche Wrap

Wendelin Wiedeking made the cover of Fortune Magazine – One site called him “Europe businessman of the year”, but I wasn’t able to confirm that title. He’s all the talk in investment circles…both good and bad I’m sure. I love this quote: “While the rest of the industry swooned, Porsche CEO Wiedeking outsmarted the hedge […]
