En Mars 1993, Porsche présente au salon Auto de Genève la série spéciale du modèle “30 Jahre 911”, basée sur une 964 coupé C4 avec les ailes larges et limitée à un total de 911 exemplaires.
Considérée comme une des plus belles Porsche de tous les temps, elle est actuellement une voiture de culte.
La voiture que nous présentons est une des plus intéressante du marché car malgré ses 175.000 km, le moteur vient d’être refait avec la garantie Porsche. La voiture est donc en rodage et dans un état extérieur/intérieur exceptionnel.
Cette Porsche est matching numbers et matching colors et a un dossier complet.
Venez la voir, vous tomberez amoureux!
Nine Porsche works drivers and two Porsche Young Professionals will contest the Nürburgring 24-hour race with the Porsche 911 GT3 R.
Porsche is back again with another video featuring one more gem plucked from their private warehouse facility. This time around it is a short story about the original Boxster prototype that is disguised as a Turbo Body 964 Targa with it’s rear window tinted so you can’t see it’s mid engine hiding behind the front seats. Somehow, we don’t think these rough test mules get displayed at Porsche’s museum just up the street from them, so it is a treat to get a chance of hearing their interesting stories in what would otherwise be a car tucked away in obscurity unable to tell it’s tale about it’s part in automotive history. Enjoy: Also, be sure not to miss /DRIVE’s video look inside the Hidden Workshop of Porsche Classic.

This 1987 Porsche 959 arrived at TuneRS Motorsports in Florida straight from Germany after being recently purchased by it’s new owner. He requested it be freshened up mechanically and cosmetically inside and out, top to bottom, and seeing that this is the same shop that built this 1995 993 RS clone, we have no qualms about the quality or ability of their work. The 47k kilometer super car appears to have been well used by it’s previous owner, who looks to have rode it hard and put it away wet, not that there’s anything wrong with that. We’d rather see them having been used as intended than never driven. Back in ’87, these vehicles were technological marvels far ahead of their time with twin turbos, all wheel drive, tire pressure monitoring sensors and slippery futuristic aerodynamic styling allowing a .31 drag coefficient. They were originally produced for Group B homologation purposes before the race series was ultimately canceled for being deemed too dangerous because of too many deaths of both drivers and spectators. While most existing examples of the rare road version models have been pampered and rarely driven, it’s nice to see one that has been properly used throughout the past […]
Porsche présente une version allongée de la Panamera de base au salon de Shanghai.
Karl J. Pojer is the boss of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises – and a racing driver. Porsche Classic met the high-level executive in Hamburg.
This 2002 Porsche 996 GT2 “RSR” is the subject of an on-going, 4 year active project by 911Design in an effort to build one of the most extreme street/track 911 GT2’s, possibly of all time. The custom fabrication craftsmanship and attention to detail in the suspension, engine and brakes, and all of it’s associated hardware is just absolute art. No posing here. In it’s final iteration, the 3.8 Twin Turbo engine was dynoed at 843 rwhp at 1.1 bar while running 100 octane race fuel. The transmission of choice to handle all of that power was a sequential gearbox from Cartonics in Germany, with steel synchros and revised ratios. Since engine rebuilds are not cheap at an estimated $40k-$50k, the redline was set to “only” 8600 rpm. Loren Beggs, of 911 Design (www.nine11design.com) in Los Angeles, California and suspension guru Cary Eisenlohr of ERP are legends in the Porsche 911 race car world who can be given credit for creating this particular beast for car owner and 6speenonline.com member “1badGT2”. Over the course of approximately 4 years, the discussion of this monster has grown to 55 pages, and counting. With a street car build as wild as this it can be expected to ask why he […]
As we all know, there are many great models of 911 making up the fabric of the Neunelfer’s rich tapestry. However, some get more exposure than others, and when it comes to eras of 911 Turbo in particular, enthusiasts are quick to mention the recent good fortunes – in terms of values – of both the inexorable 993 and value-for-money 996. Meanwhile, the 997 Turbo, including both Gen1 and Gen2 cars, is largely forgotten about. Until now.
That’s because in the new issue 152 of Total 911, out now, we’ve taken a close-up look at why the 997 Turbo’s stock is set to rise, with ownership secrets and a Gen2 buyer’s guide to help you get into a good example of arguably the best-ever era of 911 Turbo. We also sample the modifying potential of the Gen1 997, pitting a 550hp car against Porsche’s current 991.2 Turbo S.
Elsewhere in issue 152, we’ve a double dose of Martini magic for you, first testing an incredible, road-legal version of the Le Mans Turbo RSR 2.1, before embarking on a road trip in a gorgeous SC complete with optional factory Martini decals as we sample the generation that saved the 911 from extinction.
We also delve behind the restricted gates at Weissach to bring you a definitive history of Porsche’s secretive research and development centre, plus there’s a mouth-watering twin test as the Turbo takes on the C4S in the battle of the 996 wide bodies.
