Following an impressive Scottsdale Auction at the end of January, Bonhams is offering an extraordinary single-owner private collection of a dozen air-cooled Porsche Turbos.
Porsche Design will auction two very special design icons that are inseparably linked to the brand’s founder and designer of the Porsche 911, F. A. Porsche, and Porsche Design’s founding year 1972.
After 6,000 miles of true off-road testing complete, along with a total of 300,000 miles of “extreme conditions”, Porsche is ready to debut the 911 Dakar next week on November 16th.

They said it would never happen. They said Porsche would always dumb down the 718 (Cayman) so that it didn’t cannibalize the 911. Well, in a way, “never” just happened. Porsche has announced that the GT3 motor is now available in the 718. It isn’t called the 718 GT3; instead, they’ve dubbed it the 718 GT4 RS. Okay, whatever.
Fellow Porsche nerds, this is a must-see: Top Gear’s Chris Harris chats with Andreas Preuninger about every generation of the Porsche GT3, with a light introduction of the new one at around the 28:20 mark.
Split into three classes, of which each contains a spec car that’s already well-raced throughout the world, Porsche Sprint Challenge North America events will team up with IMSA, IndyCar, and SRO to offer eight events next year, at a great selection of tracks. Sadly, none of the events will be on the West Coast. Regardless, we’re keeping an eye on this one
Porsche has broken another Nürburgring lap record, this time utilizing the portlier end of their lineup: the Panamera Turbo. Clocking in a lightning-fast 7:29.81, they’ve set the record for production cars in the executive car segment. These might be larger cars, but they’ve got the power and chassis to match.
It’s a sad day in North American motorsports, as Porsche has announced they are ending their factory GTLM effort in IMSA starting in 2021. This leaves just BMW with their M8 GTE (who won at Daytona a few months back) and Chevrolet with their brand-new C8.R to duke it out in this class.
The Porsche 911 GT1 barely needs any introduction, especially here on WR. One quick glimpse instills instant excitement; one can imagine how much of a thrill it was roaring through the world’s most iconic racetracks with its twin-turbo, 3.2-liter flat-6 and sequential gearbox.
Watch out VP, Ignite, Sunoco, and other popular racing fuel brands: a name that hasn’t been around for a while is making its way back into motorsports: Gulf.
Porsche will be storming Le Mans 4-liters-a-blazin’ this Summer at the 88th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. With four 911 RSRs putting out around 515 horsepower apiece and a whopping dozen drivers, they’ll be seeking our victory after reaching the podium in 2019 and not being too far beneath it in 2019.
While we’ve been posting a ton of content and footage covering this weekend’s 2020 Rolex 24 At Daytona, we haven’t forgotten about the form of racing we truly cherish the most: club racing.
The GT3 is the closest one can get to a loud, stiff, purpose-built 911 GT3 Cup Car without having to put on a helmet, slither into a roll cage, and snap a 6-point harness together. Or is it? What if one wanted to go a tad further and build something even closer to a Cup Car, to see how much they could tolerate before it became too much to bear for street driving?
Porsche has introduced a new T variant for the 718 Boxster and Cayman featuring a handful of standard features that improve an already excellent chassis.
