Put Your Porsche on the Perfect Slice of Metal

I’ve never fancied myself much of a wheel guy. Always seemed like too many choices and potential screw-ups when choosing wheels. Choose the wrong ones and your sweet ride turns into a hideous bomb. However, driving the Giveaway Porsche and looking at lots of exotic cars has started to give me an appreciation for what […]

Porsche RS Spyder Coming?

I know people want to see more Carrera GT related posts. For some reason, I don’t have a huge interest in the GT. Maybe it’s because I’m still stuck in the 80’s and the 959. Guess it’s time to man up, get rid of the mullet and give the Carrera GT some serious thought. For […]

Unique Interior Color Feature

I ran across this today on Craigslist. It’s not really Tempting Porsche quality for me because of the price, but it made me stop long enough to show it to my family who all had the same reaction I did, “oh wow.” It’s a 2003 911 Cabriolet for $42995 (too much IMO). Check out the […]

How Fast Can You Test Drive a Porsche?

I’ve been thinking about this for a while and Deanna’s little “experience” in the Giveaway Porsche yesterday got me to thinking about it again. I’m wondering how fast a person could go during a Porsche test drive? It’s kind of a spin off of Kramer’s experiment with the Saab salesman on Seinfeld. I can hear […]
