Porsche Boxster E: Do We Really Want An Electric Porsche?

I’ve been mulling over the Porsche Boxster E since the trio of cars showed up at the Michelin Challenge Bibendum in Berlin in May. Two Boxster E models were represented: one car containing two electric motors, and two cars with just one electric motor. The tests of the day were successful as far as Porsche […]

Porsche Underpinnings May Appear In Future Lamborghini Models

This is no surprise and one of the true benefits to large auto conglomerates like the Volkswagen Group. They’re able to take the best of the best and build out models much more quickly and efficiently under other brands.

Porsche Cayenne Lane Change Assist

Every so often, I’m just amazed at little technological advances we’re presented with. I was thinking the other day about when my kids hit senior citizen status, there will quickly come a time where younger people will be in awe that my kids were born in the last century.

Porsche Dynamic Cornering Lights

This is a pretty cool feature I was reading a little more about today. It’s called dynamic cornering lights and comes standard on the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo. The basics are when you come wheelin around a corner, the electronics account for a number of factors like speed and how hard you’re cornering, and turn […]

Dry-Sump on 2009 Porsche 911

Porsche rigged up a test system for it’s engine that looks like it’d be more at home at your local carnival than at the Porsche factory (think tilt-a-whirl). The video is short and it’s worth watching. In a nutshell, Porsche has put […]
