Electric Porsche 928 DIY Video

Jeff McCabe decided to build his own electric car. He gutted a Porsche 928, taking everything out he could to save weight, then slowly added things back in. It will take him between 120 and 150 miles before needing to be recharged and has a top speed of 85 mph. An interesting video and even […]

Jet Engine Powered Porsche 928

An email from Brad usually means something interesting. This week was no exception. He sent me a link to a blog post titled “Asinine or Awesome?”. I’ll answer the question before I give you the reference: ASININE! In fact, I don’t see much difference between this and the hicks beating the crap out of the […]

Porsche 928 Successor?

Several car sites are asking the obvious question about the sketch of the 2 door Porsche Grand Touring car above. It’s an image used on the Porsche Consulting home page. Of course the speculation is that this is a representation of a 2-door Porsche…a 928 successor perhaps. We’ve had a number of rumors float around […]

Porsche 928 S4 GTE

I’m a bit of a sucker for cool Porsche stories. I still think about one I read in a copy of Excellence a long time ago about a pristine 356 hidden in a mountainside in Cuba (I think it was Cuba). Never was able to find the story again, despite a lot of hours of […]

Tempting Porsches #7

Here’s the latest findings that tempt me to go out and find some cash to buy. Tempting Porsche #1 “Get Your Sweetheart a Porsche This Year!” At least the ad title was catchy. I’d love to find a 928S or 928S4 to buy some day. This one is tempting because even with the crapola pictures, […]

928 GTS Owners Smokin Something???

Up until tonight, I couldn’t stop wondering what I was missing about 928 GTS models. There is one floating around on Portland Craigslist. It’s pictured above and is a 1993 928 GTS 5-speed. It was recently serviced and has 99,300 miles. Also has 12-way heated seats. I didn’t know you could heat your butt 12 […]

Memory Lane: Porsche Magazine Covers #1

I was rearranging my garage last weekend and ran across a box of old Porsche magazines that I’ve hauled around for the last 10 years. My wife relentlessly hassles me every time we move, which consequently has been about 16 times in the last 18 years, about this “stupid heavy box” of old magazines. She […]

Tempting Porsches #1

I’ve primarily been checking Craigslist.com for used Porsches online. Time has prevented me from looking too seriously for a car at this point, but I’m trying to at least get an idea of what’s out there. I’ve seen a fair number of decent cars, but aside from Boxsters and Cayennes, screaming deals have been a […]

928 Pickup aka The Utility Porsche

Although this isn’t going to make my Ultimate Car list, this is certainly….well….interesting. I thought it was funny at the end when he talks about not being able to haul anything with it. He should have put a hot tub in the back instead of the bed of the truck. Now THAT would have been […]
