2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S

A Wicked-Fast Street Legal Multi-Tool Walter Röhrl was carving up the circuit in the Porsche 911 Turbo S like a skilled Jedi Master – and I was sitting next to him, mesmerized by the breathtaking show. I had strapped myself securely into the front passenger bucket of the all-new coupe less than a minute earlier, expecting nothing more than a few quick laps around a track at the hands of another celebrated race driver. Been there, done that. Many times, actually. Yet this was different. Röhrl was not only calculated and methodical in his approach, but his rally-tuned... Read More

    eBay Find of the Day: Rinspeed Porsche 911 R69 is spectacularly Eighties
    1318118460

    Nothing communicates the Miami Vice-era coke-dealer ethos like a slantnose Porsche 911 Turbo. Nothing, that is, except this 1986 Rinspeed Porsche 911 R69. The loony Swiss outfit put its twist on the Flachbau by adding hot pink paint, color-matched wheels, the requisite body kit, and Testarossa-inspired side slats. Inside, Rinspeed installed power seats, ...

    Quick: What's the world's most practical supercar? We're sure some Corvette and GT-R fanatics would answer otherwise, but we're going to go with the Porsche 911, in one of its many fantastic iterations. Narrowing it down a little further, we'll go with the 911 Turbo coupe, which offers at least vestigial rear seats, all-wheel drive and several hundred ...

    Silly Porsche, rivers are for boats. As the story goes, this particular Swiss Porsche owner had to learn that the hard way when his 911 Turbo was driven by a friend off a boat dock leading to the Rhine River. We assume this "friend" will forever be mentioned at cocktail parties in stories that start with "You won't believe..." and end with "... so I ...

These days, our eyebrows don't arch at anything less than Lego perfection, which is why we're head over heels for the ...

    Americans seem to be uniquely obsessed with drag racing in a straight line as a means of measuring automotive performance, but when British magazine EVO decided to line up the latest set of ultra-fast exotic machinery, not a single piece of American iron was present. Not that we have any complaints about EVO's chosen group of supercars. Representing ...

    If nothing else, the 2012 911 Turbo S Edition 918 Spyder wins the contest for the Porsche with the longest and perhaps clumsiest name ever. But after a day of driving it on good roads all around Stuttgart's farm country and blasting along the no-limit Autobahn, however, we break down like always and decide it's pretty damned cool to possess any 911 ...

Aside from giving us a comfortable buffer between ourselves and any irritating neighbors, a slice of earth that large would allow for one very entertaining driveway – a driveway like the one in the video after the jump.

    Porsche is being forced to recall a handful of its most sporting models. Certain Porsches equipped with center-locking hubs need to head back to the dealership for a new set of wheels. Why? The hubs can prematurely wear, which means the wheels could separate and take a vacation from the rest of the car. Affected model year 2010 and 2011 Porsches ...

It doesn't exactly take a keen eye to notice those two massive air intakes situated on the flanks of the vehicle, and a set of flared rear fenders do their best to hide some serious rubber.

The German speedmeisters at Ruf are fans of those cars, but they like to take them, lock them in their insane asylum factory and release them back into the world as roadgoing rocketships. The company's latest creation, unveiled on the 2011 Geneva Motor Show floor, is the Ruf Rt 12 R. Based on ...

With that in mind, the folks over at Hennessey Performance have released a video of their latest hopped-up Cadillac V650 Wagon taking on Porsche's venerable 911 Turbo. As expected, the ...

    The problem with physics is that it is largely immutable. Less mass plus more low-end torque and comparable power generally equates to better performance. Take, for example, the Porsche 911 Turbo convertible and the Audi R8 V10 Spyder. As much as we love the design of the R8, it is rather porky at 3,792 pounds. At 3,627 pounds, the Turbo convertible is ...

And while the automakers trust us to be extremely careful and avoid damage at all costs, sometimes the unavoidable happens. Usually it's a chipped windshield or a bit ...
