Is This Low-Mileage Porsche 911 Dakar Overpriced Compared To The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato?

While this example packs all the bells and whistles, here's how it stacks up against the high-riding V-10 Lambo

The Porsche 911 Dakar nameplate was revived in 2022 as an homage to the legendary 911 953 rally car that was victorious in the Paris to Dakar rally in 1984. Based on the 992.1 Carrera 4 GTS, the modern reincarnation of the Dakar has been modified to venture off the pavement. Upgrades from the factory include an adaptive lifted suspension which gives it 6.3 inches of ground clearance (with an additional lift of 1.2 inches), chunkier Pirelli Scorpion All-Terrain Tires, and metal skid plates which help protect the underside on rough terrain. As for propulsion, the Dakar carries over the engine from the Carrera 4 GTS, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo flat-six making 473 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The transmission of the Dakar is an 8-speed PDK automatic sending power to all four wheels.

Is The Upcoming Toyota MR2 A Budget Porsche 718 Slayer In The Making?

Find out how Toyota's upcoming mid-engine sports car has the ideal ingredients to be a cut-price 718

Toyota is hard at work reviving iconic nameplates, and luckily for enthusiasts, this also extends to the brand’s sports cars. We have been hearing about Toyota MR-2’s return since 2019, but until a few months ago, we didn’t have any concise information. Reports from Japanese outlets were gradually revealing details about Toyota’s soon-to-be-revived, mid-engine sports car. In stark contrast to what we initially believed, the new MR-2 will not be a budget-friendly model, co-developed with Daihatsu and Suzuki. This turned out to be Toyota’s S-FR, which will also be sold as the new Suzuki Cappuccino and Daihatsu Copen and would compete with Mazda’s MX-5 Miata. This puts the MR-2 in a whole other league, and judging by the performance figures revealed, it would also likely be able to keep pace with most variants of the Porsche 718. Maybe even outperform it?

Pushing The Forbidden, Non-Euro Porsche Cayenne At The Nürburgring

Ever wondered what an unhinged Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT would be like? This little-known version of the SUV answers just that

I am a firm believer that you cannot extract supercar performance from an SUV. Maybe in terms of straight-line acceleration, but not when it comes to cornering. Apparently, I am wrong since Nurburg’s resident YouTuber/ test driver and Norschleife dweller, Misha Charoudin recently published a video with a very exclusive Porsche Cayenne. The SUV in question, is the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, but it is not the Euro-spec variant, you might expect. Instead, a viewer from Mexico imported the range-topping version of Porsche’s performance SUV, as it is sold on the Mexican market, for and naturally, he had to visit one of the most iconic racetracks for a couple of laps. Porsche has proven over and over again its performance models can take the physics rulebook and throw it out of the window. This spiced-up Cayenne Turbo GT is no exception. Here’s what makes this one special.

Track Battle: Is The Porsche Taycan Turbo GT Quicker Than A Cayman GT4 RS Around Hockenheimring?

With both models equipped with optional light-weight packages, find out if the EV can beat the gas-powered sports car around the famed F1 circuit

Believe it or not, the all-electric Taycan Turbo GT holds the prodigious title of the "most powerful road-going Porsche ever". This 4-door road missile combines a 1019 horsepower powertrain with sharp handling, giving it an edge over its EV competition. When optioned with the Weissach package, the Taycan Turbo GT can hit 0-60 MPH in 2.3 seconds and achieve a top speed of 190 MPH. All that power from the Taycan’s dual motors is channeled through a 2-speed direct-drive transmission to all four wheels. The GT4 RS is a track fiend with the same engine that powers the 911 GT3, albeit detuned a little to make 493 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of Torque. Interestingly the same engine produces 502 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of Torque in the 911 GT3. This flat-six engine sits in the middle of the car and directs all its power through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to the rear wheels.

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?

Place Your Bids: Ultra-Rare 1 Of 77 Porsche 935 Race Car Shows Up For Sale On SBX Cars

Built to celebrate Porsche's motorsports legacy from the '70s, this pristine example only has 37 miles on the clock

The Porsche 935 is a track-only racecar unveiled to commemorate the brand’s 70th anniversary at the Rennsport Reunion VI in 2018. It is based on the 911 GT2 RS and is finished in matte carbon over black to give it a raw carbon fiber appearance. It is a modern homage to the legendary 935 K endurance race car and is one of only 77 units made. When it came out, Porsche offered its customers a choice of eight exterior wraps with a selection of classic racing liveries. Now the cost of these cars varied depending on the livery and other options chosen, however, they did go upwards of a million dollars if you wanted to own one new. The 935, and the racecar to which it pays homage, has a famed aerodynamic body that earned it the nickname ’Moby Dick’, thanks to its sweeping ’Whale Tail’ rear end.

'80s Icon: Rare Porsche 959 Goes Under The Hammer For An Eye-Watering $1.8 Million

Having held the title of fastest production car in the world in 1986, this pristine example is one of 292 ever made, and represents Porsche royalty

The Porsche 959 is a halo supercar from the ’80s, that was ahead of its time for a number of innovations. Essentially, a predecessor to the 918 Spyder and the iconic Carrera GT, the 959 started out as a Group B Rally car, known internally as the 953. The 953s were initially entered in the 1984 Paris-Dakar Rally, finishing 1st, 6th, and 25th. Porsche built the 959 as a road-legal version to satisfy F.I.A. homologation regulations, which required a brand to make at least 200 units.

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.

A Legacy Revealed: Decoding The Porsche Logo & Its Modern Makeover

Here's taking a look at and past, present and future of the revered Porsche crest and what it symbolizes

The Porsche crest is one of the most iconic automotive brand symbols ever, even to non-car people. The red and gold badge with the leaping horse has adorned every Porsche model since 1951. Interestingly, one of the rare times the crest was replaced by a painted-on badge was on the 911 GT3 racecar, acting as a weight-saving measure. Initially, only Porsche lettering appeared on the hoods of sports cars from Zuffenhausen as early as 1948, but a formal trademark wasn’t conceived until 1951. That year, Porsche teamed up with a loyal customer, Dr. Ottomar Domnick, to launch a design competition among German art schools. The prize? A cool 1,000 Deutsche marks. Unfortunately, they were unable to come up with a design that appealed to everyone.

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.

Redline Revelation: Hear Cosworth Push Bugatti's All-New V16 Engine To The Absolute Limit

If you weren't a fan of how Bugatti's old quad-turbo W16 sounded, the sound-profile of this naturally-aspirated V16 will give you goose bumps

Top Gear’s Tom Ford recently spent a day at Cosworth’s high-tech facility where he spent some one-on-one time with the Bugatti Tourbillon’s brand-new V16 engine. Cosworth and Bugatti worked together to produce the V16 engine which makes 1000 HP on its own. This engine will be paired with three electric motors and have a combined output of 1800 horsepower! The Tourbillion is estimated to go from 0-60 MPH in under 2.0 seconds and attain a top speed of 277 MPH. In the video, we get to hear what the V16 engine sounds like and how it compares to all the different V-engines from years past.

The Secret Limited-Edition 918 Spyder That Only REAL Porsche People Know About

Deciphering Porsche's mysterious undervalued 911 Turbo S and what makes it so special

At first glance, this looks like a run-of-the-mill 997.2 generation 911, but there is an interesting story behind the existence of this "Acid Green" accented 918 911. Back in 2010, Porsche introduced an exciting hybrid concept sports car known as the 918 Spyder at the Geneva Motor Show. There was a surge of interest in this upcoming hybrid supercar which Porsche capitalized on and collected initial deposits of $200,000, by as early as 2011. However, it would be nearly three years before Porsche would deliver the 918 Spyder in December 2013 for an MSRP of $645,000 In the meantime, Porsche felt that their exclusive clientele shouldn’t have to sit around twiddling their thumbs and offered a companion 918 Edition 911 Turbo S. For each of the 918 examples of the hybrid 918 made, they offered a companion 918 edition 911.

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.
