  • A concise history of the Porsche 911

     A concise history of the Porsche 911

    Any Porschephile worth his salt could immediately differentiate a Porsche 911 of one generation from another despite its constant tear drop shape. For 52 years, the 911 has accumulated a lot of engineering and racing successes as it has accumulated a legion of fans. For those who are just beginning to get engulfed by the Porsche mystique, here’s a brief history lesson. Words by Lester Dizon and photos courtesy of Porsche AG.

  • No Hybrid/Electric Porsche 911 for foreseeable future

    2030 Porsche 911 Electric

    This was to be the issue in which I would have reported on Porsche’s activities at the Geneva motor show, though as we all know the virus put paid to that. But it didn’t stop me having a chat with Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser over the telephone about the future of the 911. As you may also know, he is the man who used to be in charge of the motorsport department but has not replaced the retired August Achleitner as ‘line director, Porsche sports cars’ or, put another way, Mr 911.

  • 2015 Porsche 911 991 - total new turbo era

    2015 Porsche 911 991 - total new turbo era

    Porsche 911 991-series to go turbo across the range? To combine acceptably low CO2 emissions with the power that its customers desire, Porsche will extend turbocharging to the 911 Carrera (the current model is pictured), always normally aspirated up until now. It is expected that for the “Gen 2” 911 – the mid term engineering update on the 991-series – both the Carrera and Carrera S will receive new turbo engines.

  • 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T 991.2

    2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T

    ADMITTEDLY, IT’S BEEN a while, but when I learnt the alphabet, T definitely came after S. Not so at Porsche, which has slotted the new 911 Carrera T in below the Carrera S. Then again, Porsche is notoriously contrary: until recently its hardtop Cayman cost more than the convertible Boxster, and then there’s the mechanical layout of the 911! The confusion continues.

    2019 Porsche 911 992 - новая информация

    Меняться, но не изменять… За верность идеалам этой модели впору ставить памятник — жизненное кредо канонического Porsche 911 не меняется с 1963 года. Эссенциальный шарм не оттенили ни водяное охлаждение, ни наддув, ни полноуправляемое шасси. И будущая серия 992 проделает тот же фокус, даже если станет гибридом plug-in.

  • 2019 Porsche Macan facelifted and all new 911 992

    2019 Porsche Macan

    In a busy month for Porsche, the firm has released images of the second-generation Macan. This is a lightly facelifted version of the original but with more modern powertrains and minor suspension and steering revisions to go with modest cosmetic enhancements. The basic Macan comes with a 2-litre four cylinder engine based on that used in the VW Golf GTI and it is likely to play a far larger role in the car’s future now Porsche has purged its ranges of diesel engines for the foreseeable. The Macan S will drop its old 3.6-litre motor for a more modern 3.0 V6 with far better fuel consumption and around 355bhp, while the Macan Turbo will have a 2.9-litre version of the same engine (the reduction in capacity resulting from a beefed-up crankshaft) with approximately 434bhp.
