  1. Coupé or Cabriolet? Targa: The Best of Both Worlds Porsche completes its sports car trio in time for summer: following on from the Coupé and Cabriolet, the third body variant of the new 911 generation now makes its debut with the all-wheel drive Porsche 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S models. The distinguishing feature of the Targa remains its innovative, fully automatic roof system and, just like the legendary original Targa model from 1965, it features a characteristic wide roll hoop, a movable roof section above the front seats and a wraparound rear window. The roof can be comfo
  2. Porsche Offers Modern Infotainment Systems For Classic 911 Models source: https://www.motor1.com/news/414490/porsche-modern-infotainment-classic-models/ First-generation Boxsters can get an upgrade, too. There’s no denying that Porsche has some of the most passionate auto fans in the world. Credit for that legacy certainly falls to the 911 – these owners love their cars and they love to drive them, be it a new 911 Turbo S or a classic air-cooled model from decades past. A few years back, Porsche Classic offered a neat upgrade for classic 911 owners in the form of a single-d
  3. Hey all, I am doing a survey to understand more about the local luxury car rental market, and will appreciate your help with the poll above and comments. Will you rent a Porsche 911 (Type 997) or an Audi R8 (V8) for the above prices? Thanks in advance! Here are some photos of the respective cars: Audi R8 (picture below shoule be a V10 model but the V8 model is similar looking): Porsche 911:
  4. The original 911 was revealed to press and public at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show as the 901. 50 years have since passed. To commemorate its golden anniversary, Porsche has created a limited edition 911 Carrera S and only 1,963 units will be built. Set for a world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the '911 50' will be available in two unique colors - the darker Graphite Grey and a lighter Geyser Grey metallic. The limited edition coupe is 44mm broader across the rear wheel arches, a feature typically reserved for AWD Carrera 4 models. Other exterior updates includ
  5. You know what they say, "Do whatever you want, just don't get caught!" Unfortunately (or thankfully, perhaps), these teenage car thieves in the United Kingdom don't seem quite knowledgeable about such a saying. Instead, these thieves just seemed so proud of their 'stealing' ability that they even shot pictures of themselves with the cars they had successfully stolen. What amazes me more is that they even posted the pictures on Facebook, a world renowned social media, and on their phones! This led the local police to catch them red-handed, or should I say, 'bread-handed' (you'll see why). It's
  6. The Porsche 911 will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and Porsche kicks-off the celebrations with the introduction of the new 911 GT3. Back in 1999, the 911 GT3 became the fastest ever production car to lap the legendary Nurburgring-Nordschleife circuit and hence after set the benchmark for road legal sports cars. Over the last four generations a total of 14,145 GT3 cars have since been built and now there is another based on the 991 series - Porsche 911. The fifth generation 911 GT3 debuts at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show and aims to set the benchmark among tho
  7. Porsche has issued a recall in the US involving 2,263,911 Carrera and Carrera 4 models over exhaust pipe issues. The affected vehicles were manufactured between 7th March to 12th November 2012. "The exhaust tail pipe may fracture and separate from the rear muffler," said Porsche through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The problem affects the Carreras that were fitted with the standard exhaust system. The German brand added that the fallen pipe may become a hazard for other vehicles on the road, increasing the risk of a crash. This is certainly true especially
  8. Recently, British magazine Auto Express pit the Audi R8 against the new Porsche 911 on a race track. These two supercars are actually distant relatives considering that both brands are under the Volkswagen Group's umbrella. The Audi R8 received a facelift in 2012 with the addition of a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission that replaces the six-speed automated manual R-tronic. At the other corner, the all new Porsche 911 has a rich heritage that dates back to 1963 and has been acclaimed as one of the world's benchmark sports cars. The Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is propelled by a f

    911 meets its peer

    As Porsche is celebratign the 50th Anniversary for the iconic 911, Car Magazine looks back and brings a 48-year-old car out of retirement for a comparison test with the current 911. What has changed?
  10. Just a few days ago, I stumbled on a Facebook page that would interest many car enthusiasts. Known as Hive, the pictures you see here are actually car posters. There are designed by a New Zealander guy who goes by the name of Joel Fletcher. Joel Fletcher (who I strongly believe is a graphic designer) uses his designing knowledge to create these rather incredible looking automotive posters. There is even a video on the page which shows how he makes them and he has mentioned that he uses the Adobe InDesign software. Some of his creations are grouped in one poster, for examp
  11. [extract] One of the most important people in the automotive industry has left us. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche has passed away on Thursday, 05 April 2012, at age 76 in Salzburg, Austria. The cause of death was not revealed. Alexander Porsche is the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, the man who was responsible in founding the famous sports car marque. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche is the son of Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche (commonly known as Ferry Porsche) and was nicknamed
  12. [extract] The turbocharging of engines in modern cars today is getting pretty common. You can see all sorts of forced induction set-ups, from a small-sized single turbo and up to a twin-turbo set-up. But a triple turbo set-up is something new and two German automakers are venturing into that foray. The rumours of BMW
  13. [extract] When we watch racing competitions on the telly, regardless whether it is GT racing, rallying and etc, we would see track versions of production cars that we like or own. Many automakers built or prepare higher performance versions of their cars to be used in racing events. When people buy a similar base model, they would usually modify their rides
  14. [extract] The Porsche 911 was first released in the mid 1960s as a replacement for the now classic Porsche 356. With its distinct body shape and ever increasing engine performance, the 911 has become a code number for sports car excellence and the new generation Porsche 911 has not deviate from its traditions. Even though Porsche has revealed that ninety percent of the car
  15. Porsche held a launch event at Prive at Keppel Bay, for the ultra-exclusive Porsche 911 Speedster. Just 356 of this limited edition sports car will be built, and Singapore gets just the one unit. This white one you see here is the only example available locally, and it has already been spoken for. The Sppedster is an iconic part of the Porsche's history, with the first one being based on the classic 356 (hence the numbers). Subsequent Speedsters were based on 911s, but they all have that unmistakable Speedster look, such as the double-bubble tonneau cover for the (manually-folding) roo
  16. Whenever Porsche comes out with a 911 that is designated a 'GT2' almost everyone gets nervous. The GT2 moniker is usually reserved for a high performance version of the 911 Turbo. It is lighter than the Turbo version as Porsche threw away the all wheel drive system and made it rear wheel drive. The 996 version of the GT2 became known as a 'widowmaker' as it channeled more than 500bhp from its rear mounted engine only to the rear tires. The recipe of the engine at the wrong place and too much power to the rear wheels made it even worse than the usual 911 type of scary, pendulum-like oversteerin
