Memory Lane Bonus Edition

Alright, I couldn’t pass this one up. I was putting away the magazines I had used for this series and ran across this one. Of course it HAS to go into the series since it has a 911 Turbo Slantnose on the cover! Another issue of Excellence (obviously) from June 1988. Here are some articles […]

Whale Tail – “The sea was angry that day, my friends.”

As you may have guessed by now, I have a man crush of sorts on the 911 Turbo. Really any model or year of Turbo. It started many years ago when I first started loving Porsches. It didn’t take long before I discovered the wickedest Porsche of them all (at least from a kid’s perspective)…the […]

Memory Lane: Porsche Magazine Covers #4

We’re on the 4th installment of “Old Guy Looking At Old Porsche Magazines”. What can I say…I don’t get out much. If you want to see the first three posts, you can read them here: Memory Lane #1, Memory Lane #2 and Memory Lane #3. This week’s magazine is one of the few that made […]

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 […]

Top 5 Porsche Stylistic Icons of All Time

There have been a lot of things I’ve loved about Porsche cars over the years. What reminds us of various Porsche models or associated times in our lives is different for each of us. It’s always interesting to see which styling attributes people key in on when recognizing a Porsche and what drives them to […]

Tempting Porsches #3

In this latest installment of tempting Porsches, I have only one that really made the list. I’m sure I’ll be called crazy for even mentioning this as a real temptation. All I can say is it’s a dang good thing I have no place to actually put this project car, because I was ready to […]

Porsche 998 Turbo: Where’s the Tail? has some decent spy photos of the latest 911 Turbo set to hit dealerships in mid-2010. I know it’s undercover and whatnot, but where’s the classic Turbo spoiler on the back? Of course the car will be fast and filled with all of the latest technology we’ve come to expect from Porsche, but am […]

Old vs. New: 911 Turbo

Although not the most informative or detailed road/track test video you’ll come across, a pretty cool video showing a current model Porsche 911 Turbo (2008 997 model) versus an older model (1995 993 model). A couple of cool tracks shots to watch for. I’m such a sucker for a 911 Turbo of ANY year.

Tempting Porsches #2

I haven’t seen many tempting Porsches the last few weeks.  Cars I would seriously consider buying, but also are a bit on the bubble when compared to other cars on the market.  Lately these have fallen more into the questionable history (rarely a good thing with a Porsche) or need work (definitely not a good […]

Porsche 911 Turbo Convert Video

From, Jeremy may well be a former Ferrari “only” guy after driving the new Porsche 911 Turbo.  Great video, worth watching.  I don’t know if it’s true or not, but he states in the beggining that the exhaust coming out of the latest Porsche 911 Turbo is cleaner air than that in the larger […]
