The one millionth Porsche 911 is superb

By Deeq on 20 May 2017 in Super cars

Attached Image Porsche has made one million 911s. Car number 1,000,000 rolled off the company’s Zuffenhausen production line today, trimmed specially to reflect the first 911 from 1963, with Dr Wolfgang Porsche behind the wheel.

So it’s painted a very smart Irish Green colour, with trim and badging picked out in gold and some tremendous houndstooth seat trim inside. There’s even a wooden steering wheel. And yes, purists, you can breathe easy. It’s a manual.

Ferrari continues to print money as demand rises

By Deeq on 08 May 2017 in Super cars, Sales report, Other News

Attached Image Ferrari profit skyrocketed 36% during the first quarter of 2017, according to a financial report published by Bloomberg.

Demand substantially increased for Ferrari's V-12 powered offerings, up 50% during the first quarter. Interestingly, buyers shied away from the V-8 powered Ferraris, whose sales slumped 35%. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation totaled in at US$265 million(S$372m), up from US$195 million(S$273m) this time last year. Demand for Ferrari's priciest models, like the LaFerrari Aperta, and its 70th-anniversary special editions certainly helped boost profits.
