The power unit featured in the new Porsche 911 GT2 is a high-performance evolution version of the six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine first appearing in the 911 Turbo. The two turbochargers now have an even higher air throughput allowing an increase in charge pressure under full load to 2 bar. Output of the 3.6-litre power unit is now 340 kW (462 bhp) at 5700 rpm, that is 10 per cent more than on the 911 Turbo. Maximum torque of 620 Newton […]... Read More
Porsche Of The Day: 1967 Porsche 911 S 2.0
The 911 S was introduced to increase the performance potential of the very successful 911. It had a more powerful engine along with a number of chassis enhancements that made it very desirable. The 1966 2.0 S was the first high performance 911 variant and it came just two years after the first 911 was sold to customers. The changes were significant. The engine got a higher compression ratio, new camshafts, bigger valves and ports, Weber 40 IDS carburetors (instead […]... Read More
Porsche Of The Day: 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS
The Porsche 718 family recently welcomed a new flagship model, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS which has been designed for maximum driving pleasure. Porsche let the GT department, their skunkworks team, at Stuttgart go slightly (read: completely) insane. The result is a $145,000 USD Porsche Cayman that carries a 4.0L flat-six engine from a Type 992 GT3 with the wick turned up to 11, has exhausts with the bare minimum of baffles to pass road legality making it the loudest […]...

Porsche Of The Day: 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Leichtbau
The rarest 964 RS variant was the awesome 964 C4 Lightweight. Known as the 964 Leichtbau it made use of surplus parts from 953 Paris-Dakar project. A handful of specially prepared lightweight 911s were fabricated by the Porsche factory and called the Carrera 4 RS Lightweight. The idea was to combine the 964 RS body with the more sophisticated all-wheel-drive system from the 959. The 964 C4 Lightweight was powered by the same 3.6 liter flat six as the normal 964 RS, but […]... Read More
Sporty, stylish, and a super-fast all-weather grand tourer is how would you like to best describe this 2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS currently offered for sale on Collecting Cars. The Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS delivers very safe driving enjoyment with all-wheel drive and a rollover protection bar; it also delivers open-air fun with a targa top that stows fully automatically.

Theon Design, to those that are deeply intertwined in the world of bespoke Porsche 911 restomods and customs, is a name that is up there alongside the likes of Singer and Straat. Through the application of engineering and aesthetics, they transform what was already a spectacular car into something truly special, often in the arena of it being a one-of-one custom. In that vein, Theon Design was commissioned by a customer in Belgium to create a one-off bespoke Type 964 […]... Read More
Box set for Ultimate Works Porsche 962 - The Definitive History on white background
The Porsche 962, following in the footsteps of the already massively successful 956, was introduced in 1984 in response to specific regulatory requirements as laid down by the American IMSA GTP Championship. IMSA’s refusal to allow the 956 to race in the US championship was based on the rule that required the driver’s feet to be positioned behind the front axle centre line. This posed no problem for Norbert Singer and his team, as they simply relocated the front axle […]... Read More
In the 50th anniversary year of the 911, Porsche opened a new chapter in race track performance sports cars. The 991.1 GT3 wasn’t without controversy. The famous motorsport-inspired Metzger engine made way for an all-new 3.8-litre flat-six, while electric power-steering replaced the traditional hydraulic set-up. Most controversially of all, there was no manual box – the GT3 is offered exclusively with a seven-speed double-clutch PDK set-up. Porsche promised that with the all-new engine, transmission and chassis, this model extends the breadth […]... Read More
Theon Design has revealed its latest bespoke commission, a fully restored and enhanced Porsche 911 (964) that blends a number of exciting company firsts with Theon’s core values of world-class design and engineering.

UK-based Theon Design firm is a small shop that is currently in the spotlight for their partially carbon fiber-bodied Porsche 964. Like many similar businesses, Theon Design started as a personal passion. Adam Hawley decided to build his own perfect 964 as a hobby, though his bread and butter was working as a car designer for big auto companies which included Jaguar Land Rover. Eventually, he was able to finish the car in a standard that got the attention of […]... Read More
The 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS once again blurs the boundary between road-going sports cars and race cars. It is equipped with the maximum degree of motorsport technology currently possible in a street-legal 911, yet retains supreme suitability for everyday driving.  Extensive modifications to the drive system, aerodynamics and lightweight design enhance performance beyond that of even the 911 GT3. Indeed, the RS has set a lap time around the 14 mile Nürburgring Nordschleife of 7 min 20 secs; an achievement […]... Read More

The Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition showcases what is possible with Porsche’s Exclusive Manufaktur program and what to expect from Porsche’s Heritage Design Strategy. Inspired by the 356 and previous generations of the 911, Porsche’s Heritage Design Strategy is bringing period-correct design cues from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s into the current 992 generation 911. Cherry Metallic is a color exclusive to the Heritage Design Edition, and contrasts well with the white decals and ‘PORSCHE’ script recalling […]... Read More
If you are lucky enough to get an allocation on a 992 GT3, you should do whatever you can in your power to buy it. It is that good. What is sad of course, is that getting an allocation is almost impossible and the slots are selling for $50-$100k over sticker.  The 992 GT3 becomes the seventh iteration of one of Porsche’s most established and beloved automobiles and it continues to embody the spirit of previous GT3 models by amalgamating all […]...

The Targa 4’s main feature is its unique sunroof panel that allows you to enjoy this Porsche almost all year round. Add all-wheel drive and the sexiest design in the business, and this is the posers Porsche 911. The Targa 4 gets the same powertrain as the base 911s, a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six mated to Porsche’s bulletproof eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (7-speed manual is optional).

Porsche Of The Day: 2023 Porsche 911 Dakar
The Porsche 911 Dakar is a high riding crossover coupe designed for off-roading. Its ride height is exactly 50mm higher than a 911 Carrera model equipped with Sport Suspension. Aside from that, the Dakar has a standard lift system that allows its front and rear to rise up by another 30mm — giving it a level of ride height and ramp-over angles that are similar to conventional SUVs we see on the road. It has all-terrain Pirelli tyres with a tread […]... Read More

Presented at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the 997 GT3 is like those before it. A more track biased version of the 911. It is the first GT3 to feature active chassis components. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) offers two different modes; normal and sport. A 6 speed manual transmission transfers power from the 415 bhp flat six mounted in the rear to the rear wheels. The latest race-bred 911 sports coupe features a 415-horsepower naturally aspirated engine with an […]... Read More
When automotive enthusiasts are asked to describe the pinnacle of the Porsche 911, the GT3 RS overwhelmingly dominates the conversation. In terms of outright performance metrics, it slots in below the new GT2 RS in the pecking order. While it may not be Stuttgart’s king of lap times, the GT3 RS is still the people’s champion. The beloved GT3 RS is certainly no slouch at the ‘Ring either, clocking a 6:56.4 minute lap time – just 9 seconds behind the […]... Read More
