The Raddest Pikes Peak Racer Is A Porsche-Powered Hot Rod That Never Won The Raddest Pikes Peak Racer Is A Porsche-Powered Hot Rod That Never Won

In the late 1970s, Pikes Peak saw an influx of small lightweight open-wheel Neaman-Dreager roadsters powered by Porsche 914 aircooled flat-fours with barely 100 horsepower. These little under-1000 pound cars were taking the fight directly to the larger and more powerful USAC-style front-engine sprint cars and Indy…

The Best Looking 911 Won The 24 Hours Of Le Mans As Porsche Owns Both GT Classes The Best Looking 911 Won The 24 Hours Of Le Mans As Porsche Owns Both GT Classes

Porsche celebrated its 70th anniversary this year with utter domination of both GT classes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Porsche’s beloved “pink pig” livery finally redeemed itself with a commanding win of LMGTE Pro, and that’s on top of the No. 77 Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche 911 RSR winning the LMGTE Am class.

This Badass American Porsche Team Pulled Off A Heroic Rebuild To Make The 24 Hours Of Le Mans Start (UPDATED) This Badass American Porsche Team Pulled Off A Heroic Rebuild To Make The 24 Hours Of Le Mans Start (UPDATED)

Racing the 24 Hours of Le Mans is such a monolithic effort that just getting to the starting grid is a challenge. That was especially true for Core Autosport this year, which had to pretty much start over at the last minute after one of its cars got wrecked in qualifying.

The Fake Sounds Produced By The Jaguar I-Pace Make Me Weep For The Future The Fake Sounds Produced By The Jaguar I-Pace Make Me Weep For The Future

There’s nothing worse than discovering that your car pumps in fake or weirdly amplified noise. Sure, I know isolation from other road sounds is a luxury, but it just sounds completely fake. Unfortunately, many electric cars have picked up this baton of sadness and ran with it, as Jaguar’s new I-Pace makes some of the…

This Artist Imagines What A Future Electric Porsche 911 Could Look Like  This Artist Imagines What A Future Electric Porsche 911 Could Look Like 

With the Porsche Missi... errr... Porsche Taycan on the horizon, the famed German sports car brand is preparing for its electric future. But I’m impatient and don’t want to wait for the all-electric 911 that could take years to arrive, so for now I’m glad that renders of such a thing exist.

I'm Driving To The 24 Hours Of Le Mans In This Porsche 911 GT3 I'm Driving To The 24 Hours Of Le Mans In This Porsche 911 GT3

I’m about to scratch a major item off my photography bucket list: I’m covering the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend for Jalopnik. And in addition to shooting the race and tracking how Porsche’s team in particular wages war on track for a day straight, I have a good ride in the form of this 911 GT3.

The Porsche 911 Speedster Concept Is A 500 HP Throwback Designed To Perfection The Porsche 911 Speedster Concept Is A 500 HP Throwback Designed To Perfection

As part of the same 70th anniversary celebrations that gave us the tragic new name of the Porsche Mission E, the automaker immediately made everything better and revealed a new Porsche 911 Speedster Concept.

The Porsche Mission E Is Now, Uh, The Porsche Taycan The Porsche Mission E Is Now, Uh, The Porsche Taycan

News of Porsche developing its gorgeous Mission E concept into an all-electric sports car lineup has been very exciting, at least up until this point. According to a presentation by the CEO, the production version will unfortunately be called the “Taycan.”

The Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Doesn't Exist, So This Shop Created It The Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Doesn't Exist, So This Shop Created It

Everybody loves a 911, but—and trust me on this—the Porsche Cayman GT4 is the best road car the company has ever delivered. The mid-engine layout gives it incredible balance, the six-speed manual makes it highly engaging. So when you add $20,000 in upgrades to that brilliant base, you’re pretty much into a superhero…

My Porsche 964 Road Trip Went Very South In West Texas My Porsche 964 Road Trip Went Very South In West Texas

Two weeks ago Friday, I kicked off what was planned to be a badass drive from Austin to Los Angeles, delivering my friend’s Porsche 964 to him. I’ve driven from Austin to LA a few times, even in another Porsche, back when I had a 997. I drive across Texas once a year, as I have a habit of buggering off to Marfa to do…

Porsche's Unrestricted Le Mans Car Is At The Nürburgring, Maybe To Obliterate A Lap Record

Porsche was spotted today turning fast laps at the Nürburgring with their now-unrestricted 919 Hybrid Evo Le Mans prototype. Now that they’re no longer running the car at Le Mans, the 919 is now attempting to dominate lap records across the world—and let’s be honest, it’s about time they give us a ‘Ring time. Could…

Both the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS and its convertible sister the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS are built around angry little mid-mounted engines juiced to make more noise and power than they have a right to. If that sounds like a good recipe for great driving... Yes. Yes it is.

Please Tell Me Why This Madman Put A Chevy 350 Engine In A Porsche 914 Please Tell Me Why This Madman Put A Chevy 350 Engine In A Porsche 914

Just because you can do something doesn’t necessarily mean you should do it. This is how I feel about this 1971 Porsche 914 with a 350 Chevy V8 engine selling on Craigslist right now for $9900.

Porsche Has Already Won Le Mans Porsche Has Already Won Le Mans

Celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, and probably something like a thousand Le Mans entries, Porsche is out to prove that Germans can occasionally be nostalgic about something. While practically every car on the grid for the last decade has been some combination of red, white, and black, Porsche has painted up…

Valet Wedges Porsche 911 Under Subaru, Creates Tower Of Boxer Engines Valet Wedges Porsche 911 Under Subaru, Creates Tower Of Boxer Engines

Some poor, poor valet in Sydney, Australia somehow managed to stuff a client’s Porsche 911 Carrera under the ass-end of a parked Subaru Crosstrek, creating a lovely mound of boxer-engine goodness.

Call me crazy, but I believe if you’re going to do a long road trip, you should do it in some style. So I’m driving this tastefully touched-up Porsche 964 from Austin to Los Angeles this weekend. I’m going to enjoy it immensely.
