If you found it charming what a Porsche 911 is capable of, than this car will certainly make you sigh in admiration. A range of different Porsche models have served as a varied source of inspiration and lent some of their best details.
For example the chassis comes from a Porsche 914, while the chassis has been taken from a 914 and modified. The beautiful 3 liters engine with a capacity of 280 hp has been delivered by 911 RS, while 915 has been kind enough to offer the gearbox. The car has a fine design and it has some borrowed lines, as well. For example, the air vents come from 718 RSK Spyder, with brakes coming from 934. The interior preserves the retro theme, offering a wooden steering wheel, classical details and diamond plate floors. This car is a “take it or leave it” kind, since the passionate Porsche fans can either love the idea of comprising various Porsche models in one unique model, or hate it. You can pick your group.
Porsche Classic Center Gelderland is ready to open its doors for its first guests. Here the fans of the German brand will find not only the classic cars, antique sale, but will call for professional drivers and services to treat as delicate as posible their toys!
The Suttgart Sportscars manufacturer plans to build more such centers throughout the globe and the next countries covered are Australia, Belgium, Canada and the United States. Also, Porsche is planning to expand the partnership network of these centers approved up to at least 100 locations by the end of 2018. Many of them will be even Porsche dealerships, only that the employees will benefit from special courses for retraining.
The owners of classic Porsche models will appeal to the professionals trained in repair and maintenance of automotive collectibles that will help with a partial restoration, with access to over 52,000 genuine parts direct from the warehouse.
It notes that Porsche has 24 other such centers but all are located in Germany!
In a video surprised by a video camera installed by a store, we can see how this man is trying to steal a Porsche.
A man trying to steal a car is no news, but this one has a method that seems to come directly from the Stone Age. He cuts the Porsche’s roof with a knife and enters it. But apparently, there wasn’t a complete plan, because he doesn’t know how to start the car once he has accessed it.
The London Police says that this is the second attempt of the same guy to steal a Porsche in a span of just 20 minutes, but he failed in both cases.
Fortunately, we can admire his lack of creativity in the video below.
In anticipation of 2015 Essen Motor Show, TechArt posted official photos of their new Magnum based on Porsche Cayenne. The show in Essen is an international gathering of tuning houses where they display their wildest concepts and designs.
Judging by the images, the new Magnum will feature side air intakes, carbon fiber splitter, restyled bumpers and new grille. The Magnum wears 22-inch by TechArt and has lower suspension that improves handling.
Some sources say that it will also feature some performance upgraded, but there is not much info about it at the moment.
Paul Walker’s death sparked a lot of controversy and discontent among his family members. Shortly after the investigation was over and clearly identified the driver’s fault in the accident, the daughter of Paul Walker, Meadow Rain, sued the German company Porsche for lack of safety systems that would have saved the lives of the people inside the car.
Unfortunately or fortunately, Meadow’s legal action resulted in a rejection by the Germans, who in return blamed the exploitation of the machine, stating that the specimen in question, a Porsche Carrera GT, was modified and thus, its technical, mechanical and design features were altered. Moreover, the car was equipped with old tires produced in 2009 (the accident occurred in 2013), and the strongest argument was that the driver exceeded the speed limit in the area nearly twice!
Now, the father of the actor decided to submit the same charges against the German car manufacturer, hoping that this time his action will be satisfied! This is the third attempt to obtain a compensation from the company after an attempt on behalf of Roger Rodas’ wife, Paul Walker’s business partner and the one who was driving the car at the time of the accident.
The concerns raised by sustainable development will have their word in the automotive world and Porsche is no exception. The racing cars will work on electricity, which is pretty obvious.
The Korean designer Gilsung Park sees the future Porsche working on a advanced electric drive train, with delicate aerodynamic details and a design inspired from the 918 Spyder model.
An accumulator insures the power required for the races, while the main power comes from individual air hubs levitating turbines. Thus, there are no more electric engines. The lights are lasers, with intelligent glass integrated in the suspension.
Porsche 918 Spyder, one of the best performance cars in the world, is powered by a 4.6-liter V8 working together with 2 electric motors to produce an insane 887 hp and 944 lb-ft of torque. The supercar is also extremely balanced and has superior handling.
You would think that no other car could challenge it, and you’d be wrong. There is another beast in the wild and it is called the Nissan GT-R R35 which was tuned with Alpha 12+ package to deliver the ungodly 1,200 hp and 1,200 Nm squeezed from its 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo engine.

Anything that is near perfection comes in limited supply. Same thing happens to the people that are in line to buy the new 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4. Dealership availability is low and demand is high.
Well things were different for this lucky owner that managed to snag a brand new car finished in a perfect color and trim. And here’s the kicker…he’s selling it! Apparently he just can’t seat comfortably in his new toy. Those sports seats are rough on his back.
Accordion the owner, the sapphire blue 2016 GT4, has 1,426 miles on board of which only 700 miles are his while driving home from dealership. The car also features black leather with platinum grey stiches and a carbon fiber/leather package. The asking price is $105,000.
And since this guy seems to be lucky, the dealership announced him that another person cancelled their order and he can finally get his dreamy car with those comfortable seats.
Porsche Carma: One day, four students at the Superior Design University in France, decided to join forces and create an extreme sports car, which would be suitable for the everyday use, as well.
The team consisting of Julie Dicks, Pierre Delavault, Germain Baillot and Simion Meniu came up with the Porsche Carma concept, which presents some innovations in aerodynamics.
The Porsche Carma has an internal rear spoiler, which at high speeds floats back a couple of inches and creates a channel for the air to get to the flat-six engine, in the middle of the back. The floor of the car is also an important part of the aerodynamics, practically pushing it onto the road and helps it reach higher speeds.
Some old and present Porsche models have borrowed their lines to Carma’s exterior design. Remember the rear of 928? You’ll find it on Camaro’s back!
However, this is not an official Porsche concept, so we don’t expect to see it become real any time soon.
