421Roger Rodas' Widow Suing Porsche Over Carrera GT Crash

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department cleared automaker of all wrongdoing

Investigations undertaken by local law enforcement may have vindicated Porsche from any wrongdoing in the crash that killed actor Paul Walker and racing driver Roger Rodas last year, but the latter's widow is apparently not convinced.

53Porsche confirms "compact sports car" reveal for LA

Porsche, like the rest of the automotive world, is gearing up for the Los Angeles Auto Show at the end of this month. While for us that means carefully calculating our staggered chow-runs to In-N-Out Burger in-between press conferences, for Porsche it involves prepping two more world-class sports cars with which to dominate the competition.

Honesty time: Much like Editor-in-Chief John Neff, convertibles aren't really my thing. Oh sure, I love having a good droptop for a week every now and then, but I just can't see myself ever plunking down the cash to own one.

33Porsche 911 prototype caught sporting real Targa roof

No, that's not a Type 991 Porsche 911 Cabriolet – look closely and you'll see the first true Targa since the model variant disappeared from the Porsche 911 line in 1995. Oh yes, we know Porsche has been selling one in the interim, but to purists, the giant sunroof models of the past 17 years have been Targas in name only.

8Porsche recalling 2012 911 Carrera S over possible fuel leak

Porsche is recalling 1,232 examples of its new 911 Carrera S over potential fuel leaks. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration filing, routing of a coolant line could interfere with the fuel line, causing the latter to to become disconnected. Naturally, a loose fuel line is no small matter, as it could lead to stalling problems or even a fire.

522012 Porsche 911 hits U.S. dealerships

The 2012 Porsche 911 has been soaking up its share of plaudits, now its ready to soak up its share of your bank account. The "longer, lower, wider, 100-pounds lighter, faster" 911 has finally reached dealerships in its two initial guises: 350-horsepower Carrera and 400-horsepower Carrera S.

362012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet gets unique power wind deflector

Automakers have been integrating wind deflectors into convertibles for years now, though in many cases, they're a do-it-yourself, manual affair. The idea is to disrupt the wind enough to eliminate that obnoxious swirling effect that kills conversations and hairstyles in equal measure.

212012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet brings warm weather to Detroit [w/video]

The Motor City has been blessed with unseasonably warm weather and mostly clear skies this week, so consider it fortuitous that Porsche has gifted the Detroit Auto Show with the global premiere of its 911 Carrera Cabriolet.

55EVO gets sideways in the new Porsche 911

We just can't get enough of the new 2012 Porsche 911. Earlier this month, we had our first stint behind the wheel of Porsche's new icon, and since then, we've been reading (and watching) what others have to say about the 991 911. EVO magazine's Chris Harris recently took a Carrera S out along the twisty backroads of California, and in addition to giving the car a proper critiquing, Harris manages to get the car sideways once or twice, for good measure.

9Stanford wiring up vintage sports cars and their drivers to help develop new cars

Stanford has taken to playing with vintage Porsche racers as part of the institution's research on the interaction between driver and vehicle. By swaddling a 1960 Porsche Abarth Carrera in GPS antennae, motion sensors and laser measuring equipment to monitor the vehicle's suspension geometry, distance from the road surface and well as the position of the steering wheel, Stanford scientists are collecting a massive amount of data about how a non-computer assisted vehicle handles at the edge of co

462012 Porsche 911 Carrera S is seven shades of awesome [w/video]

We like the new 2012 Porsche 911 so much that we thought, heck, why not show it to you twice. This time, however, we bring you the more powerful 911 Carrera S from the floor of the Frankfurt Motor Show. It's the more powerful sibling to the standard 911, and a German sports car that we're eager to get some seat time in.

Things happen in an orderly fashion in Germany. And so they do with the unveiling of new cars. The Porsche 911 most of all.

6Brumos Porsche honors Hurley Haywood with exclusive 911 Carrera GTS B59 Edition

Settle on buying yourself a Porsche 911 and you've still got a ways to go, narrowing it down to the exact model you want. That's because – with various drivetrain, transmission, body-style, aspirations and other parameters to specify – the iconic rear-engined sports car can be had in about two dozen different variants.

67Mini reveals track for Porsche challenge, not really Road Atlanta

Last we checked, Road Atlanta was a famed professional 2.54-mile racetrack, not an oversized autocross layout on a training skidpad. Somebody may need to remind Mini USA, as the maker of famously small cars has just announced the "track" (their word, not ours) for its overly-publicized "Rumble on the Racetrack" (their title, not ours) challenge pitting the Mini Cooper S against the race-bred Porsche 911 Carrera S.
