Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo EPA range goes official

Photo credit: Porsche U.S.-bound Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo models are about to arrive and head to customers, so we now know the EPA-estimated range that owners will get on their new models. It’s right in the ballpark of what we would expect from a car like this, with this utility, but it does come with a caveat that might make it more enticing. All Taycan Cross Turismos are 4 models, with all wheel drive. The base Taycan Cross Turismo 4 is rated at 215 miles. Coincidentally, that’s the same ...

Rod Emory is working on a hard core off-road Porsche Macan Baja

Screenshot: @rodemory on Instagram It seems like off-road Porsches are all the rage these days. We’ve seen totally rad Cayennes from E-Motion Engineering, awesome off-roading in Moab, and even Porsche themselves are getting in on the Cayenne craze.

EV startup Fisker sets moonshot goal of making a climate neutral EV by 2027

Electric vehicle startup Fisker Inc. has set a moonshot goal of creating its first climate neutral car by 2027.

Instead, this will be another yet to be announced v...

Enduring style: Giving the Street Triple a classic race vibe

The Triumph Street Triple is one of those rare bikes that have been a universal hit with riders all over the world.

The 911 GT1 is the pinnacle of Porsche awesome

Screenshot: Hoonigan AutoFocus / YouTube Following what was more or less an outright ban on Porsche’s dominant 962 in sports car racing, Porsche looked at the new regulations for GT1 road-based sports cars and decided to build something to fit in there as well. The rules of the day required a certain number of street cars to homologate for the class, so when Porsche decided to build what amounted to a 962 wolf in 993 sheep’s clothing (wolf im schafspelz), it needed to build a few for the street...

Porsche Commemorates the Mercedes-Benz 500 E’s 30th Anniversary

Photo credit: Porsche If you thought Porsche’s first sedan was the Panamera, you’d be wrong. The brand isn’t a stranger to four-door vehicles because it has a history of collaborating with other automakers building fast sedans, wagons, and hot hatches. The Volvo 850 T5R and Audi RS 2 were just some of the vehicles that Porsche helped develop. One of the most recognizable, however, is the Mercedes-Benz 500 E, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary Its blend of comfort and performance made it ...

Adding A Truck Bed To A 914 Makes The Best Sports Car Of The 1970s Even Better

Photo credit: Bradley Brownell / FlatSixes Dick Troutman and Tom Barnes are no strangers to building magnificent cars. They combined to form one of the best known coachbuilders in Southern California, creating legends like Lance Reventlow’s Scarabs, Jim Hall’s first Chaparral, a weird four-door 911, and many other racing and roadgoing contraptions. Some of their designs were beautiful, others purely functional, but everything served a purpose. In the early 1970s Troutman and Barnes found a rear...

Watch Nicolas Hunziker Paint This 356A In Timelapse

If you’ve ever seen Nicolas Hunziker’s work, you might think he’s slashing paint across canvas as fast as a flyby Porsche, creating automotive beauty where there was blank canvas in no time flat. But in reality he’s a methodical and plotting artist, knowing exactly how the finished result will look, and where the shading should go before even starting the first brush stroke. He manifests the Porsche and extracts it from the canvas in a way I have never seen before. It’s truly something special,...

On the other hand, Mercedes learned a lot about drivers and their wants and needs. For example, Mercedes learned what a lot of us know: our cars...
