    Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, Porsche Porsche typically keeps to a suitably fast schedule when it comes to rolling out increasingly hard-core performance versions of the 911. After the 997 Carrera debuted in 2004, the GT3 version followed in 2006, and by the end of the 2007, Porsche had rolled out both the GT3 RS and GT2 versions. Then the facelifted 997.5 came out in 2008 and it was back to the start: the GT3 came in 2009, the GT3 RS and GT2 RS in 2010, and the GT3 RS 4.0 in 2011. But things have slowed down some with the latest 991 generation. The new Carrera came in 2011 and…

  • One Of Five Porsche 911 Carrera GTS “B59″ Offered For Sale

    Bradley Brownell
    23 Apr 2014 | 7:00 pm
    A few years ago, Porsche wanted to do something special for Hurley Haywood as he entered retirement from professional sports car racing. In commemoration of his long career with the Brumos brand, predominately with Porsche, the factory assembled five special edition B59 versions of the 997 Carrera GTS. Five cars were built to commemorate Mr. Haywood's five wins at the legendary 24 hours of Daytona. The B59, ostensibly commemorating Hurley's third win (1977, Ecurie Escargot 911 Carrera RSR with John Graves and David Helmick), #3 of 5, has come up for sale. Being offered at $159,000, this…
  • Here’s A Video Explaining Exactly How To Convert Your Porsche 993′s Headlights To HID

    If you own a Porsche 993 and aren't fortunate enough to have factory Litronics then you know just how weak the factory lights are for night driving. In fact, in my opinion, they're down right dangerous. One of the fastest, easiest and best upgrades you can do for your 993 is to convert to High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs. Not only is it a simple and practical project, but completing it on your own will make your 993 more enjoyable to drive at night and give you the confidence to tackle larger and more complex projects in the future. On a scale of 1 to 5 wrenches with 5 being the hardest,…

On Sunday the 20th Porsche returned to the World Endurance Championship with a double victory in the GTE-Pro class and a podium finish for the 919 Hybrid. While the race wasn't without issues for the 919 (one of the two cars had to retire early and the 919 that landed on podium did so 2 laps down) it was still a successful first outing for Porsche's factory teams.

    History was made back in 2011 when Brumos Porsche announced the creation of five rare, factory-built 911 Carrera GTS B59 Edition coupes built in honor of racing legend Hurley Haywood's amazing overall Daytona 24 Hour victory record. At the time, Haywood was the only racer to achieve five overall wins. "In creating the 911 Carrera GTS B59 Editions, we honored the close working relationship Brumos has enjoyed with the factory over the years," explains Ray Shaffer, Brumos Porsche general manager.

    By now you've probably heard that Porsche is finally launching GTS versions of both the Boxster and Cayman. However, chances are you didn't get to see the introduction of these newest models live. With China as Porsche's 2nd largest market in the world (and 2-door sports cars make up nearly half of all the cars they've delivered there) it's no wonder Porsche chose Beijing for their introduction. However, more importantly, in addition to the Cayman and Boxster GTS, Porsche unveiled new a base Macan (lower down the model lin than the S model) and built specifically for the Chinese market.

    Filed under: Car Buying, Coupe, Performance, Videos, Porsche When Nick Murray took delivery of his 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S in June 2013, he had saved for it for the past five years. He didn't just pluck a random 911 off a dealer lot. He specially ordered his car with thousands of dollars in extras tailored just to him, and he captured all of the options on his YouTube channel. The love affair didn't last long. Eventually the channel became a place for Nick to air his growing list of grievances about his deteriorating 911. Eventually, his mix of righteous indignation and sarcasm went viral.

I've concluded that only a German automaker - Porsche, to be more specific - would go through the trouble of engineering a roof system that essentially lifts the entire greenhouse off a vehicle, rearranges its components like a sliding-tile puzzle, and then reassembles all of them seamlessly (sans roof panel) to accurately recreate one of its most famed…

This is a hot lap of the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX, with Porsche Works Driver Patrick Long at the wheel of a Porsche 918 Spyder. The camera is basically showing us everything that Long sees, making this not just one of the coolest 918 videos we've seen, but also one of the neatest laps of CoTA. As Long peers through the bends, so will you. You'll see him fight the wheel, and find out just how difficult it is to hustle this hybrid hypercar around a world-class track at speed.

I have been having issues with smooth delivery of acceleration and it has been suggested that it could be the EVOM intake causing turbulent flow and giving the MAF false readings. Any thoughts by those who have an aftermarket intake? Anything that can be done beyond replacing the stock intakes.
