Porsche 911 GT3 Drifting Video

This video is in German, but the footage is well worth watching. The driver does some crazy drifting on some mountain roads. Some of the gutsiest footage in an expensive car that I’ve seen to date. Oh, and I want to learn to do that!

Weekly Porsche Wrap

Porsche owner sues Bridgewater Circuit City over $50,000 damage to his car – This is just crazy to me. A guy who lives in Green Brook, who also owns a 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo is saying an employee caused $50,000 worth of damage to the car (depreciation, busted wheel/tire and broken suspension) when he hit […]

This is another one for under $10k. Here are some of the ad details: 86,XXX miles, Blue metallic/gray leather interior 5-speed tiptronic transmission,keyless entry,power […]

Sportec – Swiss Missile Producer

There’s a reason Sportec is considered one of the best, if not THE best Porsche tuner in Switzerland. Their designs are well thought out and their components are of the highest caliber in both fit and finish. The 911 GT2 based car pictured above was dubbed “The Swiss Missle” by one blogger. The Performance stage […]

Techart’s Rolling Art Gallery

I first saw a Techart treatment on a 1982 911 SC (I think I’ve actually had it in one of my Tempting Porsche installments). The owner had applied a 1997 993 Turbo S factory OEM steel body conversion to the car and it looked amazing. Just like a late 90’s 911 Turbo. As it turns […]

Mansory – Learn from the Swiss

It’s not a surprise with quality and designs like the one above that Mansory is one of Germany’s top tuners of Porsche cars. They have a broad range of capabilities that stretch from the subtle to a step above insane. Mansory recently acquired Rinspeed’s Porsche tuning division. They have continued the tradition of Rinspeed quality […]

Are You A Flasher?

I’m a guy who likes comraderee (WordPress is trying to tell me that’s not even a word!). One of the mystiques of the Porsche brand, for me, was the kinship that you share with other Porsche owners. The one or two finger wave. Flashing your lights. Giving a little honk on the horn. It was […]

9ff – Fastest Porsche Tuner

Today’s 7 Days of Porsche Tuners features 9ff. I didn’t realize it until I started looking for more info on 9ff, but they have some pretty amazing accomplishments racked up. The biggest so far has to be the world record for “fastest streetlegal car in the world”. They accomplished this, for the second time, in […]

Gemballa: Super Tuner for the Porsche Stars

I’m continually amazed at what people will spend on a car like a brand new Porsche, only to dump sometimes 2x or 3x more into customizing the car. I haven’t ever really gotten into the gross excess that a lot of tuners tend to bolt on to cars to justify the outrageous prices they charge. […]

Porsche 914 Comeback???

I’ve heard rumblings (along with grumblings) about a possible comeback of the Porsche 914. And by comeback, I mean re-release. It kind of reminds me of the year we started seeing 280Z’s start to disappear. What I heard was that Nissan was buying them up to rebuild, then re-release. Kind of a cool concept although […]
