Porsche vs. The World Video

Lyndon sent me this video, and I couldn’t stop laughing. I felt like I was watching an episode of I Survived A Japanese Game Show. That aside though, there are some interesting side by side comparisons. Especially the braking tests. Never seen that done before.

Sweet Porsche Driving School Options

A couple of weeks ago, while surfing around on the site, I ran across some of Porsche’s driving school options I didn’t know they offered. I’m not sure if they’re new for this year or if I just missed them. All of these are track based trainings. The first is Porsche Sport Driving School […]

Porsche Number 1 – Where It All Began

I ran across this old press release and photos about Porsche No. 1 as it was headed to Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance a couple of years ago. This is great history lesson on the first Porsche ever build (and driven) way back in 1947/48. For those of you who don’t know the history of the […]

One 15 Year Old’s Porsche Dream Comes True

I’m always on the lookout for good Porsche stories. Some of them can be pretty inspiring and it’s cool to see what kind of memories are built around the brand we love. Nick, one of our younger readers, has been emailing me about a trip he planned to take to see his grandfather and […]

Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid Frist Drive Video

This is another great Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid video. This time with some driving footage. The video was shot in Monterey California a few days before the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Man o man I can’t wait to see this car in person!

GEMBALLA Brand Coming Back To Life

An interesting press release landed in my box this morning. It was titled “A Fresh Start for the GEMBALLA Brand” and was from a PR firm in Germany. They got me there and I read the entire thing. It seems someone has snatched up the GEMBALLA name and some of the assets and hopes to […]

Porsche 918 Spyder Sound Video

This is a short little video in which you can hear the sound of the new Porsche 918 Spyder. What a great note. Will sound even better on the open road I bet.

1957 356 Cabriolet Restoration – Part 10

James sent over an update last week on the 1957 Porsche 356 Cabriolet restoration. From James… In the last report we did the right side rocker. After it was welded, we had a run of bad weather, so we couldn’t get out for sand blasting the inside of the left rocker. That got put on […]
