Poll Results & New Poll Series

It’s always interesting to me to hear people’s opinions on Porsche related topics, especially when it’s a quick hit anonymously via a poll. We’re wrapping up the poll from the last month. Here are the results: Which of these Porsche experiences would you like to have? * Rent or borrow a Porsche and drive the […]

“Daily Driver” Porsche 356

Paul sent over several pics of a Porsche 356 he spotted in McMinnville. He said it was packed with luggage (it also had Texas plates). Looked like they were travelling in it. Last Saturday (the day he took the pics) was a rainy day. I love that these 356 owners were driving their car in […]

Porsche Design Contest Winner’s Bounty

Since neither of the people I sent Winner’s Bounty to for our little Porsche spotting contest have responded on the blog with thoughts or comments about what I sent them (Andrea, our winner, and Ruthless Bookie, who put in a day taking pictures to make this happen), that means either they didn’t receive what I […]

Porsche Family Tree Commercial

I actually had a different video queued up for today, but James O. reminded me about the Porsche Family Tree commercial that aired this weekend (thanks James!). This has got to be one of my favorite commercials Porsche has ever put together…from start to finish. Unbelievable to see all those old cars mixed in with […]

Weekly Porsche Wrap

2 more lives saved by a Porsche – What is it about serious crashes in Porsches? Lots of dumb drivers I’m sure. Fortunately a number of them end with serious injuries being avoided (which I’m unresearchingly chalking up to driving a Porsche). This time a couple of teenagers were out joyriding in daddy’s Boxster, took […]

Janis Joplin’s Porsche

It’s always interesting (and sometimes downright scary) to see what people do with their cars to imprint their personal style and tastes on them. This is especially true of people with money, which is often where the scary part comes into play. To be honest, I’m not really sure what I think of Janis Joplin’s […]

Tempting Porsches #23

Today is Tempting Porsche 944 Edition! Found a couple of 944s I would love to own. Tempting Porsche #1 The first Tempting Porsche is a 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo. It’s black on black with 139,000 miles on the odo. 5-speed manual (of course!) and “almost completely stock”. Sounds like a relatively solid car that needs […]

Techart’s Take On The Porsche Panamera

Last month, along with a number of other front runner tuners, Techart released word of their “individualization program” for the Porsche Panamera. Phase 1 of the Techart program will include exterior components which will improve aerodynamics while offering a striking appearance (pretty typical Techart stuff there), 21″ and 22″ light metal wheels, a multifunctional daylight […]

Porsche Panamera Luuuuuuv

Had something waiting for me from Porsche Cars North America when I got to the office this morning. I made a little unboxing video for you to enjoy with me.

Singer Porsche 911

Singer Vehicle Design, a California based company, is taking a new approach to the usual tuning game. Instead of chopping up, completely changing and oftentimes overdoing the styling of the vehicle, Singer is approaching their vehicle customizations as Restored, Re-imagined and Reborn designs. So far, their customizations have focused on classic cars (well, one really […]
