Porsche takes us inside of one of its factories to see how they create a bespoke 911 GT3 from their Exclusive Manufaktur division. It takes two days to build a car from start to finish, with 1500 workers touching each vehicle along the way. This particular specimen is finished in a gorgeous Gold Bronze Metallic paint.
Awesome Porsche 911
This 1458-piece LEGO Creator set lets you build a classic Porsche 911 from the late 1970s. You can choose to make either a 911 Turbo or open-top 911 Targa, and both cars have a detailed interior, flat-6 engine, steerable wheels, and tilting front seats. Pre-orders start on the LEGO website on 3.1.2021, or 2.16 if you’re a LEGO VIP.
This awesome Porsche 911 was built by Singer for its All-terrain Competition Study. Working with rally expert Richard Tuthill they created the car based on a 1990 Type 964, strengthened its core, upgraded its suspension, brakes, tires, engine, and gearbox to survive punishing off-road events like the Baja 1000 and Dakar Rally.
Porsche’s famed retractable-roof model now gets the sleek new front and rear seen in the latest 911 coupes. The Targa 4 gets a 380 hp 3.0-liter flat-6 that zooms to 60 mph in 4.0s, while the Targa 4S gets 444 hp and a 0-to-60 time of just 3.4s. Every car packs Porsche’s excellent AWD system, and the 4S can be equipped with a 7-speed manual.
Porsche’s understated supercar doesn’t look that different, but she’s got it where it counts. It’s wider, has staggered wheels, 10-piston carbon ceramic brakes, enhanced aero, and can go 0-to-62 in 2.7 sec, thanks to its massively-upgraded 641 bhp, 3.8L twin-turbo flat-6. With AWD and rear-wheel steering it’s precise too.
A celebration of 70 years of Porsche sports cars. Based on the chassis of the 911 GT3, this open-top 911 features a shortened window frame, dual humps behind the seats, and a stripped down interior to save weight. Its flat-six engine makes 500+hp with a 9000 rpm redline.
The ultimate incarnation of the 911, the GT2 RS packs a 700 hp twin-turbo flat-six, lightweight body materials, aerodynamic upgrades, rear-wheel steering, a 0-to-60 time of just 2.8 seconds, and a 211 mph top speed. It may not be the prettiest 911 ever made, but it is the fastest.
A very special limited edition of what is already a very special sports car. Porsche is making just 500 of this model, which packs a turbocharged flat-6 with 607 hp, wrapped in a Golden Yellow metallic shell, with carbon fiber aero, black tailpipes, and other exclusive upgrades.
The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S goes from Clark Kent to Superman faster than a Bugatti, Ferrari or Lamborghini. But is it just for the track? Our friends at DriveWithDave spent an afternoon behind the wheel of the fastest accelerating non-electric production car in the world.
The ultimate purist’s 911 features the 4.0L flat-six engine from the 911 GT3 RS, offering up an impressive 500 horses, an 8,250 RPM redline, a manual gearbox, an automated wing, and a top speed of 200 mph. Goes from 0-to-60 in just 3.7s, and sounds spectacular getting there.
You’d think the Nürburgring wasn’t exactly a good place to drive in the snow, but the green hell looks like it’s just as much fun when it’s covered with white stuff, as demonstrated in this video of a classic 911 being drifted around the track by driver Patrick Simon.
