Protecting Your Porsche from a Hidden Danger

Protecting Your Porsche from a Hidden Danger

I like many Porsche enthusiasts enjoy older Porsches. Part of the reason for this is that many of us Porsche Enthusiasts prefer the feel of a car without all the computer assistance. However, these cars are often well over 30 years old and there could be a silent issue happening without your knowledge. One issue […]

Everyone Should Drive a Porsche at Least Once

Everyone Should Drive a Porsche at Least Once

From meeting people and talking about Porsches I have come to find that in general there are two types of People. Those that have driven a Porsche and those who wish they had driven a Porsche. Because of this I have come to one conclusion, everyone should get the joy of driving a Porsche at […]

Will the New Porsche Cayman Threaten the Porsche 911 Carrera’s Performance

This past week Porsche unveiled the new Porsche Cayman and it looks to be quite a car. The new base Porsche Cayman will be powered by a 2.7 liter 275 hp engine that, coupled with the Sport Chrono package, will be capable of a 0-60 mph time of just 5.1 seconds. As good as that […]

The $200 Porsche – Is There Really Such A Thing?

The $200 Porsche – Is There Really Such A Thing?

About six years ago I bought my first Porsche. It was not the nicest of Porsches or the fastest (in fact it was one of the slowest), but it was one of the cheapest Porsches that one could buy. The car was a 1977.5 Porsche 924 and it was sold to me for just $225. […]

Front Engined Porsches from a Porsche Purist Perspective

Back in the mid 70’s Porsche started to take a different direction with the addition of two front engined sports cars, the Porsche 924 and the Porsche 928 (they would later release the Porsche 944 and Porsche 968).

Buying a Genuine Porsche vs. a Reproduction Porsche

The September/October issue of 9Magazine has an interesting article about a reproduction Porsche 917 that is perfect for track days.

Porsche and Driverless Cars

Porsche and Driverless Cars

I live in California and California is one of a couple of states that recently allowed driverless cars to be used on public roads. These driverless cars are largely being pushed for development by Google. The reason for driverless cars is an attempt to make accidents less likely and to better control fuel efficiency. This […]

More Horse Power versus Weight Reduction?

More Horse Power versus Weight Reduction?

Porsche has released some special models that feature weight reduction and/or more horse power. The Porsche Boxster Spyder, Porsche Cayman R and the Porsche 911 GT3 RS are just a few that come to mind. These Porsches are great track day toys that come with the minimum creature comforts possible (at least unless you decided […]

Why I Work on My Own Porsche

Why I Work on My Own Porsche

This past weekend I found some time to work on my daily driver, a 1983 Porsche 944. While working on the car and getting a difficult nut onto a bolt, I started thinking about why I work on my cars myself whenever possible. From getting to know other Porsche owners, I’ve found that there are […]
