The Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid, Porsche’s latest technological advancement for the track, showed it’s stuff recently with a win in a preparation race for the Nürburgring 24 hour race.

Onboard Lap 1 of the FALKEN 997 in the VLN Series Video

Nick sent this in last week and it’s a heck of a great video. The perspective is just behind the driver’s head, complete with audio. One of those mesmerizing videos to me.

How Would You Modify A Porsche 968?

One of our readers, Don, emailed me a couple of days ago asking what modifications he should make to his Porsche 968. Here’s what he asked: I would like to know what updates and modifications are possible for my Porsche 968?  Examples: engine (more power), dual exhaust, exterior headlights, fenders, side air ducts, hoods, […]

New Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Video

This is a great video of the new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS. I love it when they work footage of old cars into videos like this.

How To Make Your Laptop 100x Faster

This cracked me up. I ran across this picture on an SQL Server blog. The editor, Steve Jones, decided he was tired of his slow laptop and wanted to speed things up. His solution is quite ingenious. Reminds me of the scene from Vacation where Clark Griswald forgets he’s tied grandma’s dog to the bumper. […]

I found this press release from a few weeks ago an interesting one. It’s from TECHART about a new model they’re producing. Literally…a model. It seems TECHART wanted to provide a Porsche even those of us without the means of the top 1% of the world’s population could afford. The TECHART limited edition GTStreet model […]

Today I was checking out a site in the United Kingdom called Gumtree. It’s a Craigslist of sorts, only for the U.K. There’s all sorts of deals to be had in all the usual categories, but I was mostly looking in the used car category. One thing I like about the site is the number […]

What Do You Get When You Cross A Porsche Boxster With A Volkswagen Bug? Bugster

Ahhh, what people with too much time on their hands get themselves into. Although this would be better fit for a Volkswagen or Bug site, there are solid connections to Porsche making it fitting for PorschePerfect. It seems an Austrian man, Siegfried Rudolf, the owner of CarMaxx which specializes in restoring and customizing Porsche and […]

Porsche 911 Turbo S vs. Nissan GT-R Video

Not our normal video, but I found this one entertaining and some great driving footage. Seems a bit scripted, but still a cool video. I think in the hands of someone NOT wearing a suit jacket (who IN THE WORLD wears a suit jacket to track cars???), the Porsche 911 Turbo S would have fared […]
