Alex Ross of SharkWerks makes Porsches faster. Magnus Walker makes them look cooler. They first met at Jay Leno's Garage, dreamt up the 997 GT2 you see here and brought it back to where it all started to show Jay how it turned out.
A 911 dispatcher in Maryland is in hot water after repeatedly telling a 13-year-old to stop whining during an emergency call. She had just watched her father and his fianceé get hit by a car, while they were changing a tire on the side of the highway.
Last time we rode with Chris Harris we were shotgun in the tan leather seat of his used-yet-immaculate Ferrari FF. This time we're strapped into a black racing bucket of a filthy Porsche 911 rally car, one that led Harris to effuse, "I don't think I've driven a more exciting car this year, hypercars included."
Take a tour of the Porsche 911 engine factory in Zuffenhausen, Germany, as the company's flat-six mills are made in this video. The place is hypnotic in its efficiency to watch each part slowly come together to create these famously fantastic mills. Hardly any noise rises above the hum of the assembly line.
If you're looking for an automotive investment and have a few hundred thousand dollars to burn, then you might want to look away from Ferrari and towards Porsche. The 1973 Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS is the highest appreciating car of the last 10 years, at least in the UK. The value of these homologation specials is up 669 percent in just the last decade.
Motor Trend tests the Camaro Z/28 against the Porsche 911 GT3 in the latest episode of Head 2 Head. That's a 7.0-liter V8 versus a 3.8-liter flat-six, 505 horsepower vs. 475 hp, 3,882 pounds vs. 3,267 pounds, and an as-tested price of $76,150 vs. $145,785. It isn't exactly fair, but it's totally fun to watch.
Almost two years ago we wrote about the 12-Gauge Garage Jack Olsen built to house his multifarious Porsche 911 - its 1972 bodywork hides four decades of Porsche parts, like the transaxle from a 1977 911 and the engine from 1995 911, for example. It weighs 2,400 pounds and has 272 horsepower, and Olsen uses it daily driving and for track days, the latter excursions featuring homemade, bolt-on aero parts.
After a brief trip behind a pay wall, British auto journalist Chris Harris is back posting videos for free online, and shorts like this one are the perfect example of why his return is so welcome. Showing up at the damp Anglesey Circuit on the Welsh coast with the Ferrari 458 Speciale and Porsche 911 GT3, Harris ostensibly aims to find the better model. However, the final result really succeeds in showcasing the fun to be had behind the wheels of both supercars, particularly when initiating huge
