McLaren has released a teaser image of the new McLaren 675LT that will make its world debut at Geneva. The new supercar will sit above the 650S (and 625C in Asian markets) in the model lineup.

Apparently, the devil has left Georgia and has gone a across the pond as the 675LT puts out a beastly 666 horsepower. You may wonder why it is called the 675 instead of 666 and that is because it is named after the power in PS instead of HP.… Read more

Porsche 911 Turbo (930)

The Porsche 911 Turbo (930) is one of the all time greatest cars made by the German performance car maker. The 930 was incredibly fast for its time, but it was a tricky machine to drive. It received a reputation as a widow maker thanks to its combination of the rear-engine layout and the noticeable turbo lag.… Read more

This past weekend was the running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The 24 hour endurance race was a hard fought one with plenty of action.

The race include strange happenings such as the two factory backed Porsche 911 RSRs hitting each other. For fans of the German marquee it wasn’t quite the success as has happened in the past few Rolex 24s in the GT Le Mans class.… Read more

Porsche Cayman GTS

The Porsche Cayman GTS is a well balanced and quick car. It is a bit like a baby Ferrari 458 Italia. It may have less power but it is no less fun to drive.

The 340 horsepower mid-engined sports car has performance that comes uncomfortably close to the base Porsche 911 Carrera. While the 911 is still the King of the lineup (outside of the 918 Spyder), the Cayman (and Boxster as well) has moved up to become more on par with the rear-engined sports car in performance.… Read more

The reason for the date change is a scheduling conflict with the World Endurance Champion (WEC) racing series.… Read more

Porsche Boxster

The Porsche Boxster is one of the best handling cars on the planet. The well balanced mid-engined sports car can take corners at very high speeds and it offers an open air experience.

The Boxster is a joy to drive and a wind in the hair experience is a wonderful thing. However, it has come to the point that many now believe that any small convertible is thought of as a “girl’s car”.… Read more

We asked you to help us choose our European Performance Car of the Year (2014) and after comments on this blog and social media we had narrowed it down to two cars. The Ferrari 458 Speciale and the Porsche 911 GT3 (991).

Choosing between the two was very difficult. With the Ferrari you have a car that has a soul and a bit of a temper, but with the Porsche you have a precision tool.… Read more

Recently, we have heard a lot of news about the future of Porsche. For example, it has been confirmed that the Boxster and Cayman lineup (outside of the GT4) will use turbocharged flat-4 engines. So, now Subaru sales people will likely say that their boxer engine is essentially the same.

Beyond this it appears that future 911s will have a turbocharged flat-6 engine that is considerably smaller than the current naturally aspirated engines.… Read more
