Would You Spend $1,000,000 On A Porsche 918 Spyder?

I was looking back through some old threads on a couple of different blogs, one of which was Champion Motorsports’ The Werk Shop blog. They posted the following invoice:   I’m curious. Any readers out there, if you had a million bucks hanging around, would you spend it on a Porsche 918 Spyder? As heretical […]

Drive A Ferrari For Free (Or Close To It)

It’s no secret I have a fascination with the idea of driving an exotic car for free. “Free Ferrari” just has such a great ring to it! I wrote about an investment idea a few weeks ago (Forget Stocks! Invest In A Classic Porsche Or Ferrari!), and I swear I think about this topic at […]

Cool Audi A5 Photo

I downloaded this photo from a couple of days ago. Such a great picture. I love the look Audi A5. The A series, particularly the A8, is absolutely amazing! I suppose Transporter 2 had something to do with that. [Image Source:; Photo Credit: Raphael Orlove]

New Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 991) Feature Site

I happened to be rummaging around on the site today, and came across a great feature section about the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car coming this year. I particularly like the Technology and Concept page, with breakout pages and corresponding videos for each major section of the car. This is one heck of a […]

Double The Porsche 911 Turbo Power

Curious how you can double the power your current first generation Porsche 911 Turbo puts out? It’s easy…buy a new one! Before you cast me off in anger for the dumb opener, check out these stats I came across on Philip Raby’s blog tonight: I’ve just been doing some research on the Porsche 911 Turbo […]

One Man’s Treasure Porsche 911 Is Another’s Object Of Desire

I found this video on Jalopnik today, and have to say it is probably the coolest video I’ve watched since the Magnus Walker stuff that floated around a couple of months ago. Jack Olsen built what many consider to be the perfect Porsche garage. It’s a small, 2 car garage that Jack has built out […]

Porsche 979K – A Modern Day Porsche 959?

I keep looking at the pictures of this car, trying to digest what I’m seeing and where the connections are to the Porsche 959 wündercar from the 1980’s. A Porsche enthusiast in Japan named Takeshi Kitano, created a one off car using a Porsche 911 Turbo (997) as a starting point. As far as I […]

McLaren P1 Video Released

I’ve really come to love McLaren cars over the past year. I find myself dreaming about them as much as I do other exotics, sharing space in my mental dream garage. This new McLaren P1 video just continues to bolster the love affair. I had the video sound cranked up when I played it and […]

Is Porsche Working On A Ferrari Killer?

I saw this come across my scan late last night, but didn’t have time to post it. Several automotive sites are whipping us back into a frenzy over what Porsche may or may not be working on. Last November, the Internet was abuzz about a possible new model to fill the gap between the ultra-exclusive […]

4 Cars Take On The 200 MPH Mark

Most car guys are also speed freaks. At least the modern day car guys. That’s not to say there out breaking the law and driving dangerously on public roads. No, but many of them, if not most, do dream about the ultimate mark our modern day supercars chase after. Topping the 200 MPH mark. I […]
