Hidden message on Porsche 918 RSR video – In the video below, you can see “…im CAD hat’s passt” inscribed on the new Porsche 918 RSR in handwritten script. Translated in English, it means “it fits in CAD!”. It evidently referred to the unwelcome discoveries that pieces shown to fit during the computer design phase […]

Porsche Revive The Passion Project

I mentioned this project a while back, but didn’t realize until recently that they were tracking it’s progress through a special site. Over the next 12 months, Porsche will restore a 1973 Porsche 911 T Coupe. The finished car will be raffled off among PCA members. It seems Porsche isn’t the only one following a […]

Comforting Porsche Panorama Article

I was catching up on some magazine reading a few weeks ago and read an article in Porsche Panorama magazine about the future of Porsche and specifically it’s autonomy in the wake of Volkswagen’s takeover of the company. One of the scarier moments for those who follow the company from an executive standpoint was when […]

Porsche searches for oldest Porsche in the U.S. – Brad, a long time PorschePerfect.com reader, sent me a link to this last week (thanks Brad!). I’d just read the same thing myself. This is a great little celebration Porsche is doing in honor of their 60 year anniversary of their cars being in America. They’re […]

N. Technology Porsche Panamera scores a debut win in the series round – I’ll admit, when I first mentioned this car a couple of weeks ago, I was a naysayer (Three…ummm…interesting Porsches). It seems the people over at N. Technology knew what they were doing turning their Porsche Panamera S into a race ready machine. […]

New Porsche CEO – I guess I’ve been living under a rock for the last week. I didn’t realize that this inevitable transition had already taken place. Looks like Michael Macht got “promoted” (I didn’t realize moving a person from CEO to a lesser position could be considered a promotion) to Volkswagen AG’s production chief […]

Porsche GT3 R Hybrid takes 3rd in only it’s second race – This time it was the Nurburgring Long Distance Championship. The drivers Joerg Bergmeister and Wolf Henzler reported the car ran like a dream. Here’s the really cool part…they said they shaved off one pit stop due to the hybrid drivetrain. They saved fuel […]

Porsche U.S. Sales Celebrates the BIG 6-0

This isn’t exactly breaking news given that we’re already 3 months into 2010, but I thought this press release from Porsche had some cool little historical tidbits in it. I love the conversation between Max Hoffman and Ferry Porsche below. Spoken like a true salesman! The love affair between Porsche and U.S. motoring enthusiasts began […]

New Porsche 911 Turbo S web special – This isn’t Porsche’s best effort at a web special, in my opinion, but it’s got a couple of cool videos definitely worth watching and some opportunity to explore excellent, Porsche-quality pictures of the car. I’m excited about seeing this car in person. Check out the site for […]

PorschePurist.com At Daytona!!!

I posted about the Guardian Angel Motorsports car racing at this year’s Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona to raise money for several children focused causes. What I didn’t realize was that PorschePurist.com was going to be a sponsor with a logo on the car! John over at PorschePurist.com sent me the picture above. Notice the […]
