Mystery Of The Missing Vent: Why Does the Porsche 911 GT3 RS Get More Air While The Standard GT3 Doesn’t?

We get under the skin of both models to try to decode why the GT3 doesn't feature the side vent and here's what we found

The 992.1 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a beast, no question about it. That massive wing and aggressive bodywork scream track monster. But there’s one detail that had me scratching my head: that side vent, or the lack of one. Unlike the standard GT3, the RS has a gaping maw right on the rear wheel arches. Why the difference between the two models? Let’s find out.

Porsche Engineer Sheds More Light On The 992.2 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

Get under the skin to find out more about the fascinating engineering behind Porsche's all-new performance hybrid sports car

In a recent interview with YouTuber Jack from Savagegeese, the lead product manager for the Porsche 992.2 911 Carrera GTS and base models - Clen, took the opportunity to discuss the car’s T-Hybrid system. Diving into the technical aspects, Clen identified the T-hybrid turbo setup as the most complex feature of the car. Their goal with this system was to create something that captured the essence of hybrid performance without the traditional weight burden of a typical hybrid. Achieving consistent performance was obviously paramount, and Porsche collaborated closely with their Motorsports division, drawing inspiration from successful cars like the 919 Le Mans racer. This collaborative effort yielded a new breed of hybrid if you will, one that balances performance with efficiency,

Honda's Prelude Reboot: A Toyota Prius-Porsche Taycan Mashup?

Set to hit the road by 2026, we go over why the design of the upcoming Prelude is a missed opportunity for Honda

For five generations, the Prelude was one of Honda’s most technologically advanced models, known for its agile handling and performance features from the 1970s through to the ’90s. Now, after more than two decades, the iconic nameplate is making a comeback, in a brand new avatar with a new hybrid heart. However, the web is abuzz owing to some of the design choices that Honda has made with its upcoming sports car. The front end appears to have borrowed cues from the new Toyota Prius and Crown. Looking at the rear, things once again look oddly familiar. The tail-end of the sixth-gen Prelude features a narrow light bar and strategically placed model and brand name, that appears to come straight from Porsche’s design studio. But why did Honda make these design choices when they had the opportunity to start from a clean slate?

This Porsche Design Gaming Monitor Is An Absurd Steal At $180 (But Only For The Next 10 Hours)

If you're a gearhead with a twitch stream, here's why this is an outstanding deal that you simply can't ignore

Let’s be honest, most "gaming" peripherals these days, are about as subtle as a neon pink Lambo rolling through a retirement community. But the AOC AGON Pro PD27S isn’t here to play those gaudy games. This 27-inch monitor boasts a QHD resolution, a silky smooth 170Hz refresh rate, and enough visual fidelity to make your in-game enemies weep. Oh, and it’s designed by Porsche. Yeah, that Porsche. Now Porsche isn’t a brand that you often associate with affordable, but for the next 10 hours, this gaming monitor represents just that, exceptional value. Here’s why.

The Enduring Impact Of Acid Green On Porsche's Hybrid Identity

A color used to showcase Porsche's eco-friendly innovations, find out how the significance of this vibrant shade

Porsche, a name that you usually associate with high-performance gasoline engines, surprised the automotive world when it entered the hybrid market back in the late 2010s. But the German automaker didn’t just introduce a new technology; they also subsequently introduced a new color – acid green (PTS Color Code: 2M8), which is now synonymous with plug-in hybrid Porsches. In this article, we’ll dive deep into this vivid shade and how this bold choice became a key element in establishing Porsche’s unique identity in the hybrid space.

The latest GTS gets a significant engine upgrade with an additional 40 hp and 30 lb-ft of torque while boasting updated exterior and interior enhancements and handling upgrades from the flagship Turbo GT

Porsche’s Cayenne is a high-performance, mid-size luxury SUV that debuted in 2003. It’s now in its third generation, which arrived in 2019. One year later, the GTS variant was unveiled, positioning itself between the S and Turbo models. For 2025, the GTS gets better than ever, thanks to an exterior facelift, new tech, handling, and power upgrades.

Recreating The Mission E Concept Look On The 2025 Porsche Taycan Facelift

Here's a list of the options that you need to check in the configurator, to achieve the aesthetic of one of Porsche's most futuristic looking concept cars

The Porsche Mission E unveiled in 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, was a futuristic concept car that was a showcase of an electric future for the German automaker. Four years later in 2019, that future arrived in production form with the Porsche Taycan EV. While it retained the essence of the Mission E concept in profile, it incorporated more practical considerations for the real world which we’ll touch upon in a bit. However, if you are an ardent fan of the concept and some of its distinctive design elements and wish to recreate the Mission E aesthetic on the Taycan, it certainly is possible. We’ve spent several hours on Porsche’s configurator going between several exterior and interior options and have listed out the ones that you need to tick, to get that much desired Mission E look..

The Real Reason Why MKBHD Is NOT A Fan Of The 2025 Porsche 911 (No, Its Not The Hybrid System)

Having swapped his Model S Plaid for a 911 Turbo S, Marques Brownlee had some interesting things to say about the latest 992.2 generation

Renowned YouTuber MKBHD, a.k.a Marques Brownlee recently jumped onto the Porsche bandwagon with a stealthy satin black 992.1 911 GT3 RS. As a tech YouTuber, it doesn’t come as a surprise that he has embraced electrification and has been an advocate of the booming EV space, to the extent that he even now reviews electric and hybrid cars on his Autofocus channel.

The Purist's Last Wish: Is This Porsche's Rumored Back-To-Basics MANUAL 911 Turbo?

Three pedals and a stick could be the ultimate analog surprise with the upcoming 992.2 Turbo

In a recent video, Porsche aficionado and YouTuber ARC Driver dove headfirst into a potential mystery courtesy of Porsche themselves. While configuring a 911 on the Porsche website, ARC stumbled upon an image that piqued his interest. Initially appearing as a standard 911 silhouette, a closer look revealed some intriguing details. Wider rear fenders, a prominent turbo intake, and a unique ducktail spoiler whispered "New car alert." Unlike the rest of the blacked-out silhouette, the entire spoiler was rendered in grey, fuelling speculation of a deliberate hint from Porsche.

Beyond Speed: Porsche Tops 2024 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study In Premium Category

Find out how the German marque scored top marks in the survey and how it compares to the competition

You know that saying "built like a brick"? You often associate that saying with old Mercs from the ‘80s and ‘90s. But it appears that Porsche apparently took that literally. J.D. Power just dropped their 38th Initial Quality Study results, and guess who’s leading the chart when it comes to premium and luxury car brands? Well, it’s none other than the Stuttgart-based automaker. The study surveyed 100,000 U.S. new car buyers between July 2023 and May 2024, covering over 20 brands and 200 models. Buyers were asked about 227 possible quality abnormalities across 10 different categories. Porsche came out on top as the leading premium brand with a score of 172 problems per 100 vehicles (PP100). Now for context, 195 PP100 is the industry average, which is, well, not great (the Lower the score, the better). It ranked seventh overall in the rankings.

Roof Box On A Porsche GT3 RS: Sacrelious Or Plain Genius? - image 182662

Roof Box On A Porsche GT3 RS: Sacrelious Or Plain Genius?

In what appears to be a Porsche purist's ultimate nightmare, we try to come up with the only possible reason for justifying this strange addition

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is probably the last car that comes to mind when you think about practicality. But the owner of this particular 992.1 example (as seen in the Reddit post below) based out of Dubai seems to think otherwise, as he or she has clearly tried to improve the usability of this track toy by mounting a Porsche-branded roof box, made by Swedish company, Thule. The GT3 RS does not have a frunk like other 911s, because additional aero elements have taken its place. So adding a roof box should help in maximizing space and the amount of stuff you can carry, however, it comes at a huge cost to the car’s capabilities and intended use. Regardless maybe, (and I’m just assuming here) this owner is stuck with a weird predicament, where this is their only daily driver. Let’s explore some of the pros (yes, there is one) and cons of mounting a roof rack on your GT3 RS.

Analog Aficionado? Porsche's Digital Surprise Goes Way Back (Can You Guess the Car?)

If the all-digital instrument panel on the new 911 annoys you, Porsche dabbled with the idea in the early 2000s

Be it road cars or motorsports, Porsche is a brand that is steeped in tradition and there are certain things about models like the 911, that the German marque should be very careful about changing or altering, or it could leave the Porsche faithful reaching for the pitchforks. Think stuff like the five-gauge instrument cluster with the big analog tachometer in the center, or the twist-and-turn Le Mans-style starter that sits to the left of the steering wheel.

Did Bugatti Just Reignite Every Porsche Fan's V10 Dream? - image 181692

Did Bugatti Just Reignite Every Porsche Fan's V10 Dream?

As Bugatti hangs on to internal combustion with the V16 Tourbillion, could Porsche do the same with it's next Hypercar?

With Automobili Rimac taking over Bugatti in 2021, the world expected the Chiron’s successor to be a rebadged Nevera. However, the French automaker just defied expectations and has instead stuck with internal combustion. Forget, turbocharged hybrids; Bugatti has ditched the W16 and in its place has worked with Cosworth to develop an all-new, naturally-aspirated V16 engine that revs to 9,000 rpm. It produces 1,000 horsepower. Additionally, there’s a tri-motor setup with 800 horsepower and a 37-mile all-electric range. Combined, this is an analog hybrid supercar with 1,800 horsepower on tap. For the first time, we actually have a modern-Bugatti that actually sounds good. This move begs the question: with Porsche holding a fat 45% stake in the recently formed Bugatti-Rimac, could we see a similar surprise approach from the upcoming flagship Porsche, i.e. the 918’s successor?

The $110 Hack That Finally Lets This $10,000 Porsche 911 Scream

Salvaged from Copart auctions, the transformation of Danny Z's cheap 996 continues with some nifty upgrades

Remember YouTuber Danny Z’s budget Porsche that we featured recently? Danny and his crew bought a beat-up 996 911 from Copart Auctions for $10,000. They completely transformed the looks of the stock car by throwing on a GT3 body kit. But the driving experience left something to be desired. It was time to make the car handle better, on a budget, of course. While this isn’t a full-blown tune to unlock more performance from the flat-6, the Copart Porsche did receive a few vital upgrades to improve its handling and more crucially, the way it sounds.

From 'Ring Champion To Endurance Glory: Manthey EMA Porsche 911 GT3 R Makes Winning Le Mans Debut

Find out Manthey's late-call and unorthodox strategy helped Porsche secure the win in the LM GT3 class

The 2024 Le Mans served up quite a spectacle in the brand new LM GT3 class, with Porsche’ #91 Manthey EMA Porsche 911 GT3 R taking the win. Piloted by Richard Lietz, Morris Schuring, and Yasser Shahin, the race-spec 911 GT3 R took the checkered flag, etching Porsche’s and the Nürburing-based tuner’s name into the history books as the first manufacturer to win Le Mans with a GT3 car.

The One Drivetrain Feature That The Boxster Cayman Pair DO Not Offer

Great to drive but a little short on grip? Find out why the entry-level Porsche sports car has never offered AWD

The Porsche 718 Boxster, alongside its hardtop sibling, the Cayman, has evolved into a performance powerhouse in the Porsche lineup over the past two decades. Even with the base 2.0-liter 300-horsepower turbo Boxer-four engine (which sounds similar to a Subaru Boxer four, in my opinion), the 718 not only offers performance that’s useable on a day-to-day basis but also has enough potential to carve corners with precision.

The Ultimate Cheap Fix For The Fried-Egg 996 Porsche 911?

If you're not a fan of the way the 996 looks, find out how this $400 hack can remedy that, while maintaining originality

The Porsche 996 generation, produced between 1998 and 2005, remains a controversial model in the 911 history. While it’s celebrated for being one of the most affordable ways to enter the 911 family, often priced below $30,000, it’s also garnered a reputation for its divisive design and reliability concerns. Many purists criticize the "fried egg" headlights, a radical departure from the classic round lights of previous generations, and early examples were plagued by engine issues related to the intermediate shaft (IMS) bearing.

Here's Why This 992 Carrera S Is A Budget Turbo S In Disguise

Here's a hack that will help unlock big performance from your 992 Carrera S, without breaking the bank

The Porsche 911: a sports car so ubiquitous, it’s as common as the Toyota Camry in some cities. For over six decades, this iconic model has held a steadfast position as the most recognizable sports car, captivating enthusiasts and status seekers alike. The 911 is a paradox, both a driver’s car revered by purists and a symbol of affluence coveted by many. Among Porsche 911’s model palette, the Carrera S serves as the perfect middle ground between the base Carrera and the bonkers Carrera GTS. But what if you crave the unbridled power of a Turbo S without having to spend a ridiculous amount of money? Well, the owner of this 2022 992.1 Carrera S had aspirations along similar lines, and with a tune, his 911 now produces almost 600 horsepower!

The Only Porsche 911 That You Can Buy New With A Manual

Here's why this limited-edition gem to offer a stick is a Porsche purist's dream

Porsche recently debuted the 2025 992.2 Carrera and the Carrera GTS models, with the latter sporting motorsport-derived hybrid technology. However, both forego the seven-speed manual gearbox option, at least for now. Even if you configure a pre-facelifted 992.1 GT3 and GT3 RS on Porsche’s website, you’d have no option but to choose the seven-speed PDK automatic gearbox. The only manual-equipped 911 Porsche currently available is the limited-edition 911 S/T, which debuted back in August 2023.

Here's Why This Custom Porsche 930 Is Possibly More Valuable Than A Carrera GT - image 179237

Here's Why This Custom Porsche 930 Is Possibly More Valuable Than A Carrera GT

While both are rare analog Porsche sports cars with F1-derived tech from a bygone era, there's one thing that separates the two in a big way

Remember the Porsche 930 Turbo, that 80s icon with a whale tail that earned the title of widowmaker? Well, U.K.-based tuner, Lanzante has cranked things up to 11 with their latest Porsche restomod creation, dubbed the TAG F1 Porsche. They took a featherweight Porsche 930 shell and injected a hefty dose of 1980s F1 fury – right in the middle of this whole "smaller engines are better" era. But this isn’t just any F1 mill, it’s the same unit that took the formidable McLaren-TAG-Porsche team to three straight F1 World Championships back in the 1980s.

Hybrid Showdown: 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Vs. 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray - image 179191

Hybrid Showdown: 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Vs. 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray

While both the Corvette and 911 now offer a hybrid variant, they have one fundamental noteworthy difference

Porsche recently introduced its first electrified 911 with the Carrera GTS as part of the facelifted 992.2 generation Porsche 911. It comes at a time when there are only a few two-door hybrid sports cars available in the market, and one of them is the Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray. Now, it is worth noting that neither of the two cars mentioned here are not plug-in hybrids and only feature very compact battery packs. This is why Porsche doesn’t refer to the new 911 Carrera GTS as an E-Hybrid (PHEVs in Porsche world) but instead calls it a T-Hybrid, which means Turbo Hybrid.
