Weekly Porsche Wrap

The Gold-plated Porsche – Evidently this has been around for a bit, but I just stumbled across it and figured it had to be reported on here along with a pic. I don’t really have anything to say other than “sweet mama!” [Via LuxuryLaunches.com]

Two Porsche RS Spyders to Compete at Le Mans – For all you racing buffs out there, you’re going to get double the Porsche fun this year at the Le Mans 24 hour race. I can’t say that I’ve ever watched a Le Mans race, but maybe I’ll have to this year. [Via PlanetLeMans.com]

Porsche Design Releases 911 To The Core Line – For the hard core Porsche enthusiast, Porsche Design is taking care of you. They’ve just released a Driver’s Selection range of attire known as “911 To The Core”. Just what us 911 owners have been missing (yeah, right). [Via TheMotorReport.com]

Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition Porsche Carrera GT – I don’t know that this is new, but I hadn’t seen it before. This baby has 670 bhp, 630 lb/ft of torque and a 0 to 60 time of about 3.6 seconds. That’s freakin fast! Probably more than you need for the quick run down to the grocery store. Oh, and that’s a picture above this entry in case you hadn’t figured that out.


  1. I my be in the minority on this one but I think those wheels need to go. They are flat out ugly. If you are going to go all gold on the car, please do not on the wheels.

  5. the core line looks sweet. i can get my niece 911 baby clothes. Sweet!!

  6. not sure what to think about the gold plated car. it looks cheap to me, not in price but looks obviously

  7. Hmm off topic but what happen to the post counts? Did they get reset or something?

  8. Yea, I really need a porsche to be diamond studded before I will even consider driving it.

  9. At the bar at the bottom of the page it has top commentators, archives, and links.

    • Ahhh, that’s a feature built into the theme. I’m guessing they reset automatically at the start of every month.

  10. Joe, Ryan hates us and threw all of our entries into the toilet bowl. The fix is in… some chick named Amy is going to win. 😉

  11. Haha, there is only one problem if a chick wins the contest. Girls don’t know how to drive :-p

  12. that’s awesome joe, i’m glad you said it

  13. The gold plated Porsche only works for someone with too much time and money on their hands. No good if you can’t drive a Porsche.

  14. mitchell says

    if i gold plated my honda – i dont think it would look quite as cool….


  1. […] the interior (Strangest Porsche Upgrade I’ve Ever Seen), and the gold plated Porsche Boxster (Weekly Porsche Wrap) came to mind when I saw pictures of this car. “Someone with whacked out whims and too much […]
