Think of this as a drop-top 911 GT3 Touring

The last Porsche 911 Speedster was a limited-production special that marked the end of the 997-generation 911. We've seen spy photos of that car's follow-up a few times by now, each revealing a little bit more than the last. From what we can tell, the new model is essentially a drop-top version of the 991.2 Porsche 911 GT3, 500 horsepower naturally-aspirated flat-six and all.

Le Mans winner Patrick Long picks his favorites at Luftgekühlt 5

The factory Porsche driver walks off and weaves through the thick crowds waving smartphones at priceless cars. For every 10 steps we take in Ganahl Lumber's vast warehouse in Torrance, CA, there's someone who recognizes Long and greets him. In spite of all of his accomplishments on the track, he might become better known for co-creating Luftgekühlt with Howie Idelson, an automotive culture event celebrating classic Porsches. Without stopping, Long graciously acknowledges the guests and cont

Deep Dive

You don’t need to drive all the 911 RS cars to get it, but it helps

A line of Porsche 911 GT3 RS cars, spanning several generations, splays out along the narrow two-lane road. The Isle of Man is damp, rain sputters against the grassy hills, and as we climb Snaefell mountain road, each car in succession is obliterated by fog. Suddenly, I'm alone in the oldest and most precious of the lot, an original 2.7 RS, feeling my way up the mountain at a snail's pace, peering ahead at the massive RS wings swimming in and out of the mist. There'd be breaks in the weather in

Track Test

The track car that makes everyone feel like Mark Webber

While the advances on the previous generation are discernible, they are not revolutionary. Worth noting are overall tweaks to the already brilliant suspension, with higher spring rates and metal ball joints on all bearings on the chassis. The previous model had rubber joints up front. These small changes are alchemy, but as proved by the Ring record, they yield results.

Lightweight exotic parts have been highly popular — and profitable

Digital Trends interviewed Porsche GT-car boss Andreas Preuninger, and asked whether the lightweighting Weissach Package could find its way to non-RS cars. Preuninger might have loosed at least a few worms from the proverbial can when he told the site, "I won't rule out some lightweight package will find its way to other model lines in the future." Even though Preuninger added, "We have nothing planned yet, we're very busy; don't expect to see the Cayenne Weissach next month," the opening will h

The 992 generation is well into development

Although it seems like we're seeing a new variant of the Porsche 911 every month, the current generation is nearing its end. The 991 debuted in 2011 with the updated 991.2 model stepping in for the 2017 model year. We've seen photos of the new 992 model for a while, but this new batch of the 911 Turbo out on the Nürburgring might give us our best look yet.
