In 1985, Porsche built an experimental model with the identification “911 F 22, prototype sports package 2”. Porsche Classic retrieved the prototype from the vaults and let it loose on the tracks where it was tested and honed 31 years ago.

Modern Race : Porsche Cayman versus… drones !

Y’en a ils doivent quand même avoir les fils qui se touchent… Je veux bien que chez Porsche on cherche à justifier un ADN sportif aux derniers Cayman et Boxster. C’est qu’il faut faire avaler la pilule d’avoir sacrifié le 6 à plat contre un 4 cylindres à plat aussi et aidé d’un turbo… Du […]

Five Porsche 911s I want to drive in 2017 – Editor’s choice

As I mentioned last week, 2016 was a very good year for bringing you a very high calibre of Porsche 911s in Total 911 magazine. Under a mantra of ‘onwards and upwards’, I’ve picked out five more models I’m intent on personally covering for you loyal readers in 2017. In reverse order, they are:

5) Porsche 964 Turbo 3.6

For me, the later 930 Turbo with G50 gearbox is one of the most enjoyable classic 911s to pilot. The 964 3.3 after that was merely a cosmetic upgrade for Porsche’s Turbo, but the later 3.6-litre was a different beast entirely. It still lags behind the twin-turbocharged 993 in terms of values, but there’s a reason Porsche wanted a second crack at the whip of the 964 Turbo. I’m betting this is going to become an all-time great, and a test drive will show if my money has been well placed.

4) Porsche 991.2 GTS

To be revealed early in 2017, The new 911 GTS will utilise a rendition of the new, turbocharged 9A2 flat six engine currently used for the Carrera and Carrera S models. Whether or not the new GTS coincides with a long-awaited Powerkit for the 991’s second-generation remains to be seen, but what is guaranteed is a superb sportscar for those who don’t want (or can’t get!) a new 991 GT3. Speaking of which…

3) Porsche 991.2 GT3

The first generation’s story was as spectacular as its spec: revving all the way to 9,000rpm, the car also stole headlines for incidents involving the odd fire and a worldwide recall. I’ve no doubt the Gen2 car, which has already been confirmed as naturally aspirated, will be just as scintillating to drive, though its redline will likely be more in line with the 991 GT3 RS’s 8,600 maximum revs.

2) Porsche 911 2.0 SWB

With all the 2017 talk surrounding new tech on new cars, a revisit to where it all began with the short wheelbase 911 2.0-litre will remind us of the 911’s more humble beginnings. Famed for its supposed snappy handling (a lengthening of the car’s wheelbase in 1968 helping to alleviate that), the early cars are rocketing in value as they become automotive antiques. We’ll get one on the road for you before they all disappear into collections.

1) Porsche 997 GT2 RS

2017 looks set to mark the return for a fearsome GT2 with the famous Rennsport moniker, but it was the 997 GT2 RS that started the legend. With 700Nm of torque going through the rear wheels only, this won’t just be the best drive of the year for me, it’ll likely be the most, well, interesting, too!
