This Texas Event Has An Absurd Name But It Means Air-Cooled Porsche Heaven

Fact: all generations of Porsche 911 are good, but the 964 is epic, and anything air-cooled offers a brilliant sound and driving experience that can’t be replicated with a water-cooled model. As it turns out many people agree with my wisdom, and they gather each year in Houston for an event called TejasTreffPunkt to…Read more… […]

Vintage Borbets Are Some Of The Raddest Wheels You Can Stick On Your ’80s Car

I’m an absolute sucker for aftermarket wheels, and most especially those from the 1980s and ‘90s. Prior to that era most aftermarket wheels were designed for motorsport prowess, but by the ‘80s, wheel designers seemed to be allowed to design primarily for style. The market for items to provide a unique look exploded…Read more… Continue […]

Surprise, Surprise, Porsche Probably Won’t Put A Manual In Its RS Models

When Porsche started favoring its dual clutch PDK gearbox over traditional manual transmissions in its high-performance RS models, purists everywhere let loose a thin, reedy wail that reached the unanswering clouds.

Singer And Williams’ 500 HP Air-Cooled Flat Six Sounds Amazing

One of the few good things to happen this year was Porsche perfectionists Singer teamed up with William Advanced Engineering (yes, the Formula One Williams) to make a new air-cooled, naturally-aspirated, 9,000 RPM, 500-horsepower 4.0-liter flat six.

Even SEMA Knows Off-Road 911s Are One Of The Coolest Things On Earth

SEMA cars don’t usually do it for me as they tend to be more show than go, but Kelly-Moss Road and Race built a ridiculous 911 that’s meant to go everywhere. Words cannot express how much I want to hoon a 911 through the dirt, and the car that won SEMA’s “Best Off-Road Vehicle” is […]

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Shares An Extremely Useful Feature With A Hearse

Some things are really heavy and awkward to load in a vehicle, like engine parts, coolers, caskets, and festive but delicate gourd centerpieces that you don’t want to break in two.

The Man Who Convinced Porsche To Save The 911 Died This Weekend

The fact that you can still buy a brand-new, rear-engine, opposed-piston Porsche 911 today is just about entirely due to one man: Peter Schutz.
