DeMan Motorsports Builds A GT3-Beater Out Of A Porsche Cayman

Porsche has a bit of a Cayman complex. You know what that is, right? The Cayman, being a mid-engine car, is a great platform for big power and track performance. Unfortunately, Porsche has to keep it down a little bit lower than its ultimate potential, because it can't be faster or quicker or lap any given track better than a 911 can. The rear-engine 911 is Porsche's ultimate, and has to maintain that top tier status. The mid-engine Cayman might actually be a better foundation from which to bui...

Spied: Updated 2023 Porsche Cayenne Spotted with Aggressive Updates

Photo credit: SpiedBilde Porsche doesn’t usually do extensive design changes for its vehicles’ mid-cycle refresh. In most cases, you need to look hard or get a magnifying glass to even see what’s been tweaked. This doesn’t seem to be the case for the updated 2023 Porsche Cayenne because there’s a lot more going on. Spy photographers caught the refreshed 2023 Cayenne testing in Germany near one of Porsche’s secret facilities and its changes are quite obvious. The front fascia in particular gets ...

Porsche And Penske Team Up For IMSA And WEC Effort

Photo: Michelin Racing USA Team Penske has been kicking butt in racing for decades, and for a lot of that time the team has been powered by Porsche. Way back in the 1960s Roger Penske himself was racing various four-cam Porsche prototype sports racing roadsters. By the 1970s, Penske and hired driver Mark Donohue were a global force, and their Porsche 917/30 became known as an all-conquering machine in the Can Am series. More recently, from 2006 to 2008, the bright yellow DHL-sponsored Penske Po...

Gooding & Co. Is Selling This Impossibly Orange $1M Porsche 968

All Photos: Gooding & Co. This week famed auction Gooding & Co. is launching an online listing to coincide with the incredible Amelia Island Concours. While Gooding traditionally has a physical presence at the concours weekend, it decided that it would be best to avoid indoor in-person shouting while the coronavirus pandemic still rages around the world. Aside from the fact that many of the company's traditional customers wouldn't be able to travel to the U.S. for the auction, I'm sure they wan...

The Rauh-Welt 997 Turbo Looks Like A Fat Cayman And I’m Here For It

RAUH-Welt Begriff, colloquially known as 'RWB' has revealed that it is working on body kits for the 997 generation of the Porsche 911 Turbo. On the tuner’s Instagram page, a post shows a black 997 Turbo with wide fenders, lower side skirts, and new bumpers. In addition to the cosmetic changes, the car that RWB is working on has custom gold wheels shod in wider tires. Compared to a stock 997 Turbo, the RWB 997 Turbo is significantly wider with massive 993 GT2-style bolt-on overfenders, plus a ma...

Here’s What Makes The Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo So Great

Porsche recently invited FlatSixes to drive its latest creation, the all-electric Taycan 4 Cross Turismo. As great as the standard Taycan sedan is, we actually prefer the wagon version, as it gives up very little in dynamic enjoyment, while providing much more daily livability for you and your family. In addition to hauling butt, you can also haul everything you need for a long weekend away, or even a cross-country road trip for four adults and maybe even a dog. Other companies are trying to bu...

Porsche Takes Dramatic FIA WEC Season Opening 6 Hours Of Spa Victory

Spa-Francorchamps is a legendary track at which Porsche has earned truckloads of history and race victory trophies. Adding to that total this weekend, Works drivers Kevin Estre and Neel Jani paired to take a commanding victory in the number 92 Porsche 911 RSR at the first round of the FIA WEC's 2021 season. The GTE Pro class is packed with heavy hitters, and you can bet that both Ferrari and Corvette came to the Ardennes dreaming of victory. Despite one of the factory Porsches being taken out b...

Making Sense of Porsche Brake Colors

Porsche was not the first company to offer disc brakes. That honor goes to the lowly Crosley Hotshot back in 1948! Indeed, Porsche began offering disc brakes in 1962, the same year that Studebaker introduced a Bendix system on the Avanti. Porsche had been using rotors and calipers on racing cars for a few years by the time it introduced them for consumer road cars in 1962. Despite being a bit late to the game, Porsche has always taken disc brake development very seriously. Beginning with the som...

Porsche 911 RSR Fastest In FIA WEC Pre-Season Testing At Spa

It's time for Porsche's factory endurance racing efforts to begin anew in 2021, as the company again partners with Manthey Racing for a two-car assault on the FIA WEC. Ahead of the season kicking off this weekend at the 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps, the series ran a two-day four-session test to get an idea of BOP and speed for the newly-updated cars. Every car in the series was represented, and Porsche kicked a whole lot of butt in the GTE categories with its long-serving 911 RSR. The two facto...

Your Favorite Porsche Drivers Tell The Story Behind Their Helmet Designs

Porsche has entered two 911 RSRs in the 2021 running of the FIA WEC series, both of which will be piloted by experienced racers including Neel Jani who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 2016. Each driver has their own uniquely designed helmets that were inspired by multiple factors. A driver's helmet is an extension of their personality. Sometimes it's reserved and simple, while other drivers may prefer a bold and intimidating design. Porsche asked its drivers where they came up with their he...

Worried About Charging Your Taycan? It’s Getting Easier Everyday

Photo credit: Electrify America One of the objections to buying an electric car, such as the Porsche Taycan, I rear regularly is the lack of public DC fast charging. While it's only ever really critical for longer road trips, the North American EV buyer still wants to know that they can take a road trip and not get stranded. Thanks to efforts from Electrify America and others that's becoming less of an issue. In fact, Electrify America chargers are the chargers ideal for the Taycan. They suppor...

Porsche Santa Clarita’s Wunderground Museum Is An Amazing Sampling Of Porsche History

Why is there a hole in the floor of this Porsche dealership showroom? Oh, there's a brand-new all-carbon Porsche 935 down there. You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention. What is the Wunderground? In what was once used as underground storage for a Saturn dealership, there now exists a gorgeous mini-museum dedicated to all things Porsche. It looks exactly like Porsche Santa Clarita cut a sliver right out of Porsche's own museum in Stuttgart, transported it halfway around the world,...

992-Generation Porsche 911 Sport Classic Spied In Testing

Photo credit: SpiedBilde Way back in the stone age of the 997-generation Porsche 911, the company offered a model which was basically a variant on the GTS formula, a limited edition Sport Classic with the widebody arches of a Carrera 4S, a special ducktail spoiler, a model-specific double-bubble roof, and 19-inch Fuch-style wheels. This extremely cool and special ride was limited to just 250 units, and was never sold in the United States market. As with any limited-edition Porsche, the prices o...

Porsche makes its case for an all-electric Taycan wagon

Porsche has always gone its own way when it comes to creating new vehicles. It is, after all, the company that continues to stick to the wacky idea that putting the weight of an engine in the rear of a sports car is a great idea. (It is!) So, bucking the crossover trend to create an all-electric, soft-roading wagon with just 20 more millimeters of clearance than their popular electric Taycan sedan isn’t out of character for the brand. Instead, it’s another example of how Porsche approaches elect...

Let’s All Come Together To Help Porsche Legend Vic Elford In His Efforts To Fight Cancer

Where would the Porsche world be without quick Vic Elford? Most famously Elford took a 911 to victory at Rally Monte Carlo in 1968, then got on a plane, flew to Florida, and hopped in a long tail 907 to win Porsche's first ever 24 hour endurance race at Daytona. Among hundreds of other wins for the crested German brand of fighting racers, Elford is still known today for his legendary speed and car control. I was afforded a couple of opportunities to meet the chap, and he's just the kindest face...

Porsche Back On The Formula E Podium In Valencia

This weekend Porsche participated in the 5th and 6th rounds of the 2021 Formula E season, which took place on a real permanent circuit at a modified version of the Valencia Grand Prix track. It was an up and down state of affairs this weekend, to be quite honest. The team had an absolutely abysmal Saturday race, scoring zero points for the first time in this season, but on Sunday Andre Lotterer scored a resurgent second place on the podium in his Porsche 99X Electric race car. Here's how it all...

Porsche Taps Science Guy To Explain The Taycan Electric Sports Sedan

His interesting delivery style and an uncanny ability to make the science seem both palatable and interesting at the same time is the key to his success.

This Four-Cylinder Boxster Spyder Is Only Available In China For Now

Porsche's four-liter mid-engine drop-top has been a massive international hit for the company. With a reactive naturally-aspirated engine, gobs of torque, a sublime chassis, and open air motoring, it's one of the best sports cars to ever leave the factory. For the Chinese market, Porsche's biggest market, it holds a problem, however. Under China's current automotive sales scheme, any car with an engine displacing between 3 and 4 liters is hit with a 42.12 percent tax. For that reason, the big n...

One of the giveaways that this is a Sport Classic is the ducktail spoiler, which was also found in the 997-generation car, the first to offer this variant built by Porsche Exclusive. That design cue pays tribute to the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7, which also had a ducktail spoiler, meaning you won’t mistake it for anything else. A closer look shows wider...
