More Than Meets the Eye: Unpacking The Performance Of Porsche's Heaviest 911

Porsche's "safety” droptop may be the heaviest of all 911 variants, but there are a few reasons why it shouldn't be overlooked

Porsche has made it a point to offer a 911 for every taste. Between the different body styles, engines, and drivetrain options, there are well over 20 variants of the rear-engine sports car you can choose from. The Targa form factor goes back to the ’60s and Porsche is one of the few carmakers to continue offering this unique body style with the 911, even today. Most car companies are offering, either fixed-head coupes or traditional convertible models with retractable tops. The Targa is neither a coupe nor a convertible, making it one of the most distinctive 911 variants you can buy, without resorting to the very expensive, limited-edition models. Unfortunately, this versatility also makes the Targa the heaviest Porsche 911 you can get, but there are a few reasons why this shouldn’t deter you if you are considering one.

Discount Dakar Dream: The Perilous Proposition Of A Budget Porsche 911 Safari Turbo

Tyler Hoovie takes the cut-price route to find out how much of an off-road 911 can you build for $40,000

Who needs a Porsche 911 Dakar when you can have the same amount of fun for a fraction of its eye-watering price? This is the question that Tyler Hoovie from Hoovie’s Garage YouTube channel set out to answer. While Safari 911s have been popular in the aftermarket for a while now (and cost a pretty penny), Porsche too caught up on the action with the 911 Dakar, a spectacular machine that was purpose-built to be taken off the beaten path. Unfortunately, it costs $2,25,000 before options and markup when new. They are also very rare since Porsche only made 2,500 examples.

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.

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.

What The 2025 Carrera GTS Can Tell Us About The 992.2 911 Turbo S

Hybridization is the 911's new gospel, but can the upcoming 992.2 Turbo S truly sing its praises?

The Porsche 911, an icon of automotive excellence, is on the cusp of a revolutionary transformation. The 2025 911 Carrera GTS emerges as a trailblazer, the first-ever production hybrid 911 to grace the asphalt. This electrifying marvel heralds a new era, whispering secrets of the rest of the forthcoming 992.2 generation of cars, including the highly anticipated Turbo S.

Here's Why The 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera Should Make A Lot More Power Than Advertised - image 186159

Here's Why The 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera Should Make A Lot More Power Than Advertised

For 2025, Porsche is giving the base 992.2 Carrera some 992.1 GTS hardware, but claims minimal power gains

Porsche sports cars have always punched above their weight, and most people who have driven one will testify that nothing handles and launches from a standstill quite like a 911 does. The 992-generation Porsche 911 finally gets a refresh. Despite the first production hybrid 911 being introduced for the 2025 model year, the 992.2 facelift will not be bringing radical changes to Porsche’s rear-engine sports car. It will be business as usual, meaning more power for each of the 911 versions, along with a few special-edition models.

The Last Production Porsche Model To Feature The Iconic Mezger Flat Six Engine

The Last Production Porsche Model To Feature The Iconic Mezger Flat Six Engine

The last Porsches to feature this race-bred engine is also what many believe to be the purest of all 911s. Here's why

We can all agree that amidst all variants of the Porsche 911, there are those that truly stand out. One person who is largely responsible for shaping Porsche’s identity as a builder of epic sports cars is Hans Mezger. The German engineer started working for Porsche as soon as he graduated from the Stuttgart Technical University and would stay there until his retirement in 1994. Now, that’s what I call a dream resume. Porsche has since moved away from the Mezger design, making all cars featuring these powerplants desirable collectibles. We are taking a look at what many Porsche fans consider to be peak 911. The last Porsche 911 to feature the iconic Mezger engine - the 2011 Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0.

This Porsche Is A Highly Underrated Forbidden Fruit That The U.S. Never Got. Here's Why

Often touted as one of the most analog 911's ever made, find out why this track focused Porsche never made it Stateside

We can all agree that the 996 was the most controversial Porsche 911 generation. Yet, the 996 ushered Porsche into the modern age by being the first water-cooled Porsche 911 and the first (and last) to do away with the iconic, round headlamps. Like all 911 generations, the Porsche 996 had its fair share of hardcore variants. The most track-focused, naturally-aspirated Porsche 996 was the 911 GT3 RS, which was as close to a racing car as it could be. Sadly, the 996 GT3 RS was never offered in the US, and there is a good reason why.

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.

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.

Porsche Vs. Singer: A Legal Showdown That Shifts Gears For Restomods? - image 185102

Porsche Vs. Singer: A Legal Showdown That Shifts Gears For Restomods?

Unpacking the Lawsuit and its potential impact on the Porsche outlaw scene

In a legal battle with potentially industry-wide ramifications, Porsche initiated legal proceedings against Singer Vehicle Design in February 2024. The German automaker sued the Californian restoration firm, accusing Singer of trademark infringement on their DLS and DLS Turbo models. Porsche took issue with Singer’s use of Porsche branding and design elements, even though Singer has become renowned for its high-end, meticulously crafted resto-mods of classic Porsches. Early on, Porsche saw Singer’s potential impact. In 2012, a mere three years after Singer’s founding, Porsche negotiated a binding agreement with the Californian firm. This contract outlined the boundaries of Singer’s modifications to ensure they wouldn’t infringe on Porsche’s trademarks, and all the parts used in Singer models had to be sourced from Porsche.

Besides the evocative soundtracks, find out how much performance you gain, when you equip your Porsche 911 GT3 RS with either of these aftermarket exhausts

It’s safe to say there is a Porsche 911 for everyone. Whether you need an Autobahn missile, a high-performance convertible, a track weapon, or even an off-road-suited sports car, the iconic, rear-engine model from Germany has got your back. Back in August 2022, the 992 generation got its most track-oriented, most lightweight, most radically styled variant – the 911 GT3 RS. I think we can agree, that Porsche’s high-revving, naturally-aspirated engines like the GT3 RS’ 4.0-liter unit, are the last Porsche engines that need audio enhancements, but two of the leading exhaust system manufacturers have come up with their own exhaust systems, designed to give Porsche’s 992 GT3 RS an even more appealing soundtrack. YouTuber NM2255 Raw car Sounds recently got the chance to compare how the two systems sound.

Unconventional Masters: Here's Why RWB Porsches Turn Heads Everywhere

Delve deeper beyond the Japanese tuner's crazy aesthetics to uncover the engineering genius behind RWB's wild creations

In the world of custom Porsches, everyone has heard of RWB and Akira Nakai. The renowned Japanese tuner has been modifying 911 with dramatic fender flares, exposed rivets, and double wings, since the late 90s. Before he established RWB he was the leader of a wild drift crew, aptly named Rough World. Rough World drifters mainly altered and raced with the legendary Toyota AE86, making changes inspired by widebody endurance racecars. However, Akira always had an eye for Porsches and got to work on several while working at a body shop during the ’90s. One day as luck would have it a very damaged Porsche 930 came into the shop, and Akira was able to strike a deal with the owner. This midnight blue Porsche became his first muse, which he cut up extensively to reduce weight, upgraded the engine, and installed the first version of his iconic wide-body kit. He named his first car after his favorite beer- Stella Artois.

A year since the historic run which was an emotional tribute to the late Ken Block, we reflect upon how his daughter Lia conquered the infamous Pikes Peak

The late stunt and race car driver, Ken Block inspired millions of racing enthusiasts, none more so than his daughter Lia. His family and brand Hoonigan are working hard to carry on his legacy exactly how he would have wanted. Back in May 2022, Ken unveiled yet another ridiculously powerful project car, which he intended to take to the 100th running of Pikes Peak.

The team’s first time taking the car to Pikes Peak was plagued by mechanical issues which forced them to pull out of the event, However, they did not give up and wanted to come back with Ken the next year.

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.

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.
