Porsche 911 Turbo Video w/a Little Something “Special”

Before you watch this video, if you’re prone to motion sickness, you may want to grab the trash can and have it handy. No need to watch this one all the way through, unless you’re really enthralled with the chase. The reason I had to put this one up was because of the Knight Rider […]

Weekly Porsche Wrap

Production Panamera – We’ve seen our fair share of photos around, but this is an actual production trim Panamera. Pretty surreal, at least in my opinion, to be seeing these on the street. Kind of reminds me of some chop shop’s version of a stretch 911 limo. I’m definitely excited, but the jury is still […]

Porsche Legends – Part 1

You may have already gathered this about me, but if not, I’ll come right out and admit it: I’m a bit of a dreamer. I suppose that’s why I enjoy the process of coming up with ideas, trying to figure out how to do things differently or better, etc. I have an easy time buying […]

I Think I’m In Love

I just got back from picking up a car being worked on at Gran Prix Imports in Wilsonville, Oregon. By the way, if you don’t know who these guys are, read this post: Dealership of the Century. While I was in there, I decided to take a quick walk through the showroom. “Why not?” I […]

Porsche 911 4S Pon Edition

Now this is a pretty awesome thing. I didn’t realize it, but Pon Porsche Import in the Netherlands was the first company to import Porsches. Their first Porsches arrived in 1949. The dealership in Leusden is still going strong today. To celebrate 60 years of importing into the Dutch market, Porsche has released the 911 […]

Tempting Porsches #11

Time for a couple more Porsches that I would buy in a heartbeat (or maybe two or three at most) if I had the money. As always, I’m sure I’m a bit of a glutton for punishment with one of them since it’s a bit older and probably a bit on the rougher side (you […]

A Tale of Two Porsche Pre-Purchase Inspections

Everyone always says you should get an inspection done on any used Porsche you’re considering before buying. The car can be expensive to purchase and even more expensive to maintain, so why take chances. While looking for a Porsche a few months ago, I decided to take one of the cars I was considering in […]

Drive the Porsche of Your Dreams

Ever think that owning the Porsche of your dreams won’t ever happen? After all, we’re talking in some cases about a car stretching upwards of $200,000. Heck, for a lot of us, thinking about buying a run-of-the-mill car in the $15k to $20k range can seem more than a bit daunting. I read an interesting […]

Porsche 911 Turbo vs. Ferrari 360 & Porsche 917

I realized this morning that I’m about a junior high boy age level when it comes to humor. This video made me laugh, mostly because it’s in Japanese and it just sounds karate-like. Kind of like a Bruce Lee version of a Porsche face-off. In honor of the Porsche 917 turning 40 last week, I […]

Weekly Porsche Wrap

Best Brand 2009 = Porsche Accessories – Auto Motor Und Sport’ magazine readers voted Porsche Design as a Best Brand in 2009. Quite an achievement, but nothing really surprising. Porsche Design has some pretty sweet stuff if you haven’t looked lately. [Via] Liz Halliday signs on with the Porsche Human Performance Centre – THE […]
