Porsche 911: The Practically Free Supercar

I remember as a teenager picking up a special edition book from Road & Track called Used Car Classics: A Guide to Affordable Exciting Cars. It provided detailed buying advice on 70 different models of used cars the average person could afford. Of course I bought it and went through it cover to cover. Several […]

Porsche: A History of Excellence Review

When I first cracked open the package from Motorbooks containing a copy of Porsche: A History of Excellence, I knew I was going to like the book just from looking at the cover. On it was a rendering of the Porsche 918 Spyder prototype. Such a great looking drawing on the book. Crack open the […]

After my nearly 30 year love affair with Porsche, it’s interesting to look back over the years to see resources and individuals that continue to be the authority on the brand and it’s enhancement.

Top Gun 25th Anniversary Celebrated By TopGun Days Book

This summer marks the 25th anniversary of the movie Top Gun. It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years since many of us “strapped in” our movie theater seats for the Hollywood ride of our lives. The movie easily makes my Top 5 Porsche movies list (Top 5 Porsche Movies of All Time). I would […]

Porsche 911 Buyer’s Guide Review

I just finished reading through the Porsche 911 Buyer’s Guide by Randy Leffingwell. I’ve actually had the book for a while, but previously only referred to particular sections related to 911s I was considering buying. Now you may write this off as not applicable to you unless you’re in the market for a used 911. […]
