Cayenne ??? We don’t need no stinking SUV !

Check the video below from the Rallye Transsiberia 2007, especially after the 2:49 mark, when an aircooled 911 becomes watercooled for a brief moment…

It’s time for another Porsche night…

Once again, the Porsche Soundnacht took its place a few weeks ago, at the Porsche Museum.

Eleven fabulous cars and sounds. My favorite though, was the orange RSR IROC !

This 911 is not like they used to be…

The 911’s you’re about to see, circling around the Sebring racetrack, are a new kind of beast… It’s the long rumoured, and badly needed, mid-engined 911 (telltale: no rear window !).

Before anyone commits suicide, let’s just say that going mid-engine is the ONLY option that can allow the 911 RSR to fight for victory within the current LMGTE regulations.

And no, I don’t think production 911’s will go mid-engined in the future.

I bet…

…You didn’t know Porsche had made a Diesel Cabriolet in the past.

In the auto world, no one does subtle humour like Porsche.

The honest 911.

Very interesting review on the 911R (yes, another). This time by Jason Cammisa from Motor Trend. The more interesting bit is about noises…
