Porsche 959

Porsche 959

The Porsche 959 is the car remembered for integrating the still relatively new world of technology into the automotive drivetrain – making it an elegant alternative to the Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari F40 which both relied on traditional thundering engines and hairy-chested drivers to set competitive lap times.

Singer: Porsche 911 Re-Imagined

Singer Porsche 911

Singer Vehicle Design is a company that produces what is inarguably the greatest reimagining of the Porsche 911 ever attempted. Rob Dickinson, the founder of Singer, describes his 911s as being like four-wheel cafe racers and I think this analogy is quite apt – they’re lightened, more performance-oriented versions of the mass produced originals with a…

It was ordered by the South African Porsche factory-backed driver, Ian Fraser-Jones who is thought to have fitted it with the Type 547/3 Carrera 4-cam race engine,…

Porsche 928 Cutaway

The Porsche 928 was originally developed as a replacement to the 911, and while many of us are exceedingly glad that this never eventuated, the 928 is still an excellent and quintessentially German motor car. The styling of the car was groundbreaking and it caused quite a stir at the 1977 Geneva Motor Show where…

Porsche 911 RSR Tee

The Porsche 911 Carrera RSR is considered by many (including me) to be the most beautiful 911 ever produced, the model was introduced in 1973 and was built in very limited numbers. The successes enjoyed by the RSR on the race tracks of Europe and North America are now legendary, with perhaps the most famous…

Vintage_Porsche_911_4

This Guards Red 1977 Porsche 911S is a thing we aren’t seeing that often anymore – an affordable 911. Although a smidge over $25K might not be affordable for everyone, it certainly isn’t expensive for a vintage Porsche, especially the 911 – a model that’s been seeing an extraordinary sales boom since the mid-2000s. I know…

I sometimes wonder what car designers would turn out if they were given carte blanche to create whatever they wanted – with no thought given to affordability, ease of production or CO2 emissions. Every now and then a car comes along that gives us a glimpse behind the curtain into what a car designer’s mind might…

1967 4-Door Porsche 911

4-Door Porsche 911

In 2009 Porsche released the Panamera, a 4-door sedan with a design very closely related to the Porsche 911. Many thought this was the first 4-door Porsche sedan ever made but it actually wasn’t, thanks to a slightly offbeat Texan named Dr. William Dick who was a Porsche dealer in San Antonio in the late…
