Most Powerful Porsche 911 Turbo S

The Porsche 911 is already known as a high-powered sports car that’s both stylish and comfortable. Now, though, the brand is going the extra mile to blow enthusiasts away. The new Porsche 911 Turbo S will be the most powerful model to date, but there’s a catch.

The 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Coupe will be limited to a production run of just 500 units. Porsche Design will commemorate the car with a Chronograph 911 … Continued

Spotlight on the All-New 2016 Porsche 911 R

Porsches are for racing–but they’re for the road, too! The all-new 2016 Porsche 911 R reflects exactly that. After its premiere at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, it was clear that Porsche was tipping its hat to its past. The first road-homologated race car bore the “911 R” name in 1967 (The “R” stands for “Racing”). The original was entered in rallies, in world record runs, and in the Targa Florio.

This car is truly “unfiltered” and you wouldn’t believe how streamlined it is. This light, simplified 911 R comes without the “luxuries,” so there is neither air conditioning nor radio! But don’t worry, those can be added … Continued
