4Porsche planning Cayman GT4 racer

To say that Porsche is big in racing is like saying that Warren Buffett dabbles in mergers and acquisitions. But while it fields the 919 Hybrid at Le Mans and in the FIA World Endurance Championship, the bulk of its racing activities are undertaken by private teams that buy customer racecars from the factory. Those in turn are largely based on the 911, but the latest intel from the motor racing world indicates that Zuffenhausen is planning a more accessible customer race car.

8Porsche moving on from 911 GT3 RSR Type 997, new 991-based racer will be ready by 2014

The 991 Porsche 911 is already on the streets, but we're going to have to wait until 2014 before we see the car in race form on the track.

102008 Porsche 911 GT2 introduction: The world's best seats

Even with the world-class handling and amazing power of the 2008 Porsche GT2, a relatively mundane component stood out - the seats. Yeah, we didn't expect to come back from Daytona and do an entire post just on seating technology, but yet here it is. Then again, maybe it's OK to be so fascinated by these chairs, as they're they #1 interface between driver and vehicle.

18Pinch Us: Autoblog drives the 2008 Porsche GT2

var digg_url = 'http://digg.com/offbeat_news/Autoblog_com_drives_the_2008_Porsche_GT2'; It's just before noon on a Thursday morning as I saunter down pit row at Daytona International Speedway and slide into the supportive sport bucket seat of a 2008 Porsche 911 GT2. I fiddle a bit with the seat and steering column adjustments until I'm comfortable, then double-check that my seatbelt is secured.
