Porsche 912

The Porsche 912 is a wonderful classic car. The sports car looks like the 911 of the time period with its classic sleek lines and chrome trim, but there is something different in the rear.

Where the 911 has a flat-six engine the 912 has a flat-four. The engine was taken from the last generation of the 356, which gives a nice driving experience but it doesn’t quite have the power of the 911.… Read more

A Porsche 918 Spyder After A Gasoline Fire

You must be careful whenever filling up a car to avoid making a spark as gasoline will ignite and catch your car (and possibly you) on fire. This is the reason why we are told to touch the metal of the car before fueling as it will get rid of static electricity.

However, owners of the Porsche 918 Spyder have something else to be very careful for.… Read more

Ferrari F40

The Ferrari F40 is perhaps the last great analog supercar. It doesn’t have all the computerized gadgets that help make you a better driver. When driving one it will expose your skill (or lack of it) for what it is.

It may be from the ’80s, but it is still a very fast and brutal car. Unlike modern Ferraris, the F40 isn’t a refined work of art when driving it.… Read more

Porsche 918 Spyder

The Porsche 918 Spyder has a very nice V8 engine that, combined with the electronic motors, puts out 887 horsepower. However, the plug-in hybrid supercar can also use all electric power and emit no pollution from the tailpipe.

The range using all-electric power is claimed to be 12 miles. The Island of Manhattan is a bit over 13 miles from one side to the other, so it makes for perfect test of the cars range.… Read more

Porsche Cayman (987)

When the Porsche Cayman (987) was first introduced it was made to fill the sports car model gap between the Boxster and the 911. Many think of the Cayman as a hardtop Boxster partly because it has the same engine layout. The fact that the Cayman’s shortened internal code of 987 was also the same as the second generation Boxster also led to this thought.… Read more

Out New Dodge Challenger After an Accident

About a month ago my family purchased a new Dodge Challenger. The American Muscle car is fun to drive and yet has plenty of space in the back seat to fit children (in fact I have sat back there with plenty of leg room).

But about a week ago something happened to remind me that any car (including something special like a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7) is just a possession.… Read more
