Porsche unveils a high-performance hybrid version of their iconic 911. This new GTS T-Hybrid prioritizes power over electric-only driving unlike most hybrids. It features a 3.6L flat-six engine producing 478 horsepower on its own, but the real innovation is in its two electric motors. One motor eliminates turbo lag, while the other delivers an extra kick. Combined, they unleash a mighty 534 horsepower and propel the car from 0 to 62 mph in a mere 3 seconds! Porsche debuted their […]...
The Porsche 911 Type 964 RSR, designed for international GT racing by privateers, represents a significant evolution in the 911 series, first introduced in 1989. Available in two versions, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 2, it marked Porsche’s first use of four-wheel drive in a production model, drawing on technology developed from the 959 supercar. The 964 series featured extensive mechanical updates, with 87% of parts newly designed. Both models shared a 3.6-liter flat-six engine, with innovations such as power-assisted […]...

The legendary Porsche 911 gets a high-tech makeover with the introduction of the new GTS T-Hybrid. Unlike traditional plug-in hybrids, the new 911 GTS prioritizes performance over pure electric driving. The GTS is equipped with a 3.6L flat-six engine churning out 478 horsepower on its own. But the real magic lies in the integration of two electric motors. One eliminates turbo lag by rapidly spooling the turbocharger, while the other provides an extra boost of power. The combined system delivers […]...

The diversity of model lines driving the growth stood out in Q2. For example, the 911 posted strong […]...

The controversial Panamericana concept car was another birthday “gift” for Ferry Porsche in 1989. Ulrich Bez was behind and Branitzki had hands in pockets.
It all began with a decision that Ferry Porsche would long regret. Beginning in 1970, the familial tensions described by Ferdinand Piëch were: “In our family there’s a kind of unspoken law: Porsche is Stuttgart and Piëch is Salzburg.” Porsches were taking the top jobs in Zuffenhausen and some Piëchs were heading there as well. In 1971 a new management board convened that included members of both sides of the family. Created on April 1, 1971, Ferry Porsche was its […]...
Porsche Decades book
All images: © Dalton Watson Fine Books There are so many books that have been written on just about every Porsche model and motorsport achievement over the years, that it would be a fair to ask why we need yet another one. But therein lies the opportunity, because the subject of Porsche is so vast, that to write up the company history and its products in one publication is quite difficult. There are some great multi-volume publications out there that […]...
The Porsche 906 was officially marketed as Carrera 6 and was a racing model. Like the 904, the Porsche 906 was to receive homologation for the sports car class of the sports car world championship. The  906 was produced for the 1966 World Championship of Makes. It was designed for the FIA’s Group 4 regulations, whilst modified variants of the car, using larger engines and/or cut-down Spyder bodywork, were entered in Group 6, the  Sports Prototype category. The 906 became the last […]...
Designed by Ferry Porsche, the 356 was based on the Volkswagen created by his father, Ferdinand Porsche. Like the ‘Beetle’, the 356 used a platform chassis with a rear-mounted air-cooled engine and torsion bar independent suspension. The 356 saw constant development, with its engine growing to 1.3 and then 1.5 liters, the split windscreen replaced by a one-piece, and the adoption of a Porsche synchromesh gearbox. A cabriolet followed the original 356 Coupe, and in 1952, US importer Max Hoffman […]...

Special features include embroidered details, painted brake calipers, a front axle lifter, and a spare set of lightweight matte black wheels. With performance figures like 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h, it’s lauded for its agile handling […]...
Background Since the 1960s, Porsche has been optimizing the aerodynamics of future racing and production vehicles in the wind tunnel with the help of special miniature models. The example of the legendary Porsche 935/78 shows how this works. Model vehicles feature in many a display case as diminutive dream cars. There is a rather special collection in the Porsche AG company archives that documents research objects – in a variety of scale sizes. Such as the concept for a 1:5 […]...

It’s not just about the cars and the people—it’s about the bikes, too. At the 68th Porsche Parade, held this year in Birmingham, Alabama, over 20 Porsche bicycles were featured. This included a display of 14 vintage Porsche bikes and test rides of the new Porsche eBikes for Parade attendees. When Parade organizers learned that a PCA member in the Birmingham area had the largest collection of Porsche bicycles in the world, they quickly decided to include a bike display […]...
Without question, the Porsche 550 Spyder is recognized as the first Porsche that was purpose-built for racing. This compact, mid-engine sports car significantly impacted events such as the Targa Florio, Mille Miglia, 24 Hours of Le Mans, and Carrera Panamericana, often outperforming larger and more powerful rivals from Ferrari and Maserati. Herbert Linge, a renowned racing driver and Porsche’s first mechanic after the company relocated to Stuttgart, meticulously documented the production of the 90 models of the 550 Spyder, named […]...
The Porsche 997 GT2 RS is best described as extreme. With a top speed of 209 MPH, it boasts a powerful 620 HP from its twin-turbocharged 3.6L engine, mirroring the Porsche GT1 prototype Le Mans-winning race car. Designed to reclaim Porsche’s engineering dominance, it aimed to surpass the Nürburgring lap record set by the Porsche Carrera GT. It achieved this by lapping the Nürburgring in a remarkable 7 minutes and 18 seconds. Only 500 units were produced, each based on […]...
The Porsche 992 Turbo S is an astonishingly fast and capable vehicle that blends exceptional performance, comfort, and everyday usability, perfectly aligning with Stuttgart’s philosophy. Powered by Porsche’s advanced 3.8L VTG twin-turbocharged and intercooled flat-6 engine, it delivers 640 HP at 6,750 RPM and 590 lb-ft of torque at 2,500 RPM. These impressive specifications enable it to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 2.6 seconds, complete a quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds, and reach a top speed of 205 […]...
The 1974 world premiere of the 911 Turbo at the Paris Motor Show caused a sensation. Half a century later, we return to a place that saw the dawning of a new era to tell a story of boldness, energy, and timeless elegance. The Champs-Élysées and the Élysée Palace are a stone’s throw away as we stroll where Paris is at its most stylish – très chic, one might say. An approving growl emanates from the rear. Level with the […]...
The Porsche 911 GT2, primarily built for racing but still road-legal, has a lineage tracing back to the iconic 1973 911 Carrera RS. Named after the FIA’s GT2 category, it debuted in 1993 with the Type 993 model, which many consider the most beautiful 911. First seen in prototype form at the 1994 Essen Motor Show, its 3.6-liter air-cooled flat-six engine produced around 424bhp, achieving a top speed of 301km/h (187mph) and reaching 100mph in 7.2 seconds, second only to […]...
To the untrained eye, the Carrera T may appear to be a bare-bones and sparingly equipped 911 at first glance. With a brief history lesson – and by taking a closer, more discerning look – it becomes clear that this really is not the case. The 911 has always been a car built to be greater than the sum of its parts, and the Carrera T is no different. The purpose of the T (which stands for Touring) is to create a […]...
In a world increasingly dominated by paddle shifters and electric motors, two manufacturers are bucking the trend with thrilling throwback machines: the Porsche 911 S/T and the Aston Martin Valour. The Porsche 911 S/T combines track-ready performance with the elegance of a six-speed manual gearbox. This configuration, cherished by enthusiasts for its direct connection to the driving experience, defines the essence of the 911 S/T. Powering the car is a high-revving, naturally aspirated 4.0 L flat-six engine, delivering 518 horsepower […]...
To provide customers with support in developing their ideas for their own personal dream car, Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur has configured a 911 Turbo S as an example of Sonderwunsch Factory Commissioning.

With many special features such as the extraordinary “Chromaflair”-effect paint in Urban Bamboo, painted design strips on the […]...
Unveiled in 2019, the Porsche 991 Speedster was the final edition of the 991 generation, built to celebrate 70 years of Porsche.
