If you could have only one Porsche…

While looking for a Porsche, I’ve run across a lot of cars I’d love to own some day. Everything from an early 911 or 912 that has had a couple of minor updates to a 1995.5 or newer 944. From a 928S or S4 to a late model 911 Turbo. Seems like I’m always seeing […]

Tempting Porsches #6

I’m sure I’m a glutton for punishment, but I keep seeing these old 911s and 912s that are straight and relatively complete, and think “Wouldn’t it be great to buy one of those and fix it up.” I’m not necessarily looking for a car to restore, that’d require way more ambition than I have. But […]

Far Reaching Curse of James Dean Car

An unbelievable series of events has left many wondering if James Dean’s “Little Bastard” (it appears a more than appropriate name for his Porsche 550 Spyder) is actually cursed. Interestingly, not just the car as a whole, but any part of the car. Not only did the car kill James Dean, but it also killed […]

Memory Lane: Porsche Magazine Covers #2

This is the second installment in my little walk down memory lane. You can read the first one here. This all came about when I ran across a box of old magazines about Porsche cars in my garage a couple of weeks ago. This week’s magazine is one of my all time favorite magazine covers. […]

Buying A Used Porsche – Books To Check Out

I picked up a couple of Porsche books as a refresher on buying a used Porsche. Both are longtime staples in the book world on the topic of Porsche and worth reading. Even if you’ve purchased a used Porsche in the past, consider grabbing one or both of these to remind you of things you […]

Giants Fans Destroy Porsche 911 After Game

There’s nothing like video, and I have a feeling these fans will regret being on this video. This has got to be one of the saddest Porsche related things I’ve seen, not to mention the complete lack of respect for another human being. Get out your box of kleenex and get ready to sob.

Porsche Technology: Variable Turbine Geometry

I’ll be the first to admit I really don’t know much (okay, I don’t know anything!) about the mechanical workings of a car. I can stumble through a stereo install, maybe change the oil, and drive the thing. That’s about it. I wish I knew more, which is probably why I regularly dream about buying […]

“Rare.” Rare My Asphalt!

After running across the word “rare” for the hundredth time in Craigslist ads today while looking for a used Porsche 911, I have to say, I’m darn near ready to avoid ANY car where the word “rare” appears in the title or near the price of the car in an ad. My two cents worth: […]

Rocket Enabled Porsche 944 Turbo

This video cracks me up. Quite the tactic for avoiding speeding tickets.

Gemballa Cayenne & 2009 Commitment to ALL Porsche Models

I decided this morning, while reading the latest issue of Christophorus Magazine, that I needed to expand my love for Porsche this year to include all models in the family, not just the ones I grew up on. I suppose it’s a lot like the day you decide you should get rid of the mullet, […]
