Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Porsche, Racing, Uncategorized

Today’s running of the Porsche 250 at Barber was a good day for Porsche, but not a great day. The race saw a lot of great action with some back and forth positioning for a large portion of the race.

Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Porsche, Racing

Tomorrow is the Porsche 250 at the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham Alabama. The race is the second race of the season for the Rolex Sports Car Series and should be another entertaining race.

2012 Nissan GT-R vs 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S – Video

Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Porsche, Video, Video of the Day

This video is of a track test of the 2012 Nissan GT-R against the 2012 Porsche 911 (991) Carrera S. One would figure that the turbo charged Nissan GT-R would get a much better time, but which is more fun to drive (not to mention that the 911 is actually the cheaper car)? This video answers both questions and for us Porsche fans, we can look forward to a more fair test once the new Porsche 911 Turbo is released and then that should be quite a match.… Read More

Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Blast from the Past, Porsche, Video

This video is from a commercial about the Porsche 911 (996). The video features a brief history of Porsche and a Porsche 911 (996) Turbo. It is interesting to me that they refer to a Porsche as “impractical” which is a bit different of a message from that of the recent Porsche “Everyday” ad campaign. Watch the video below and then let us know what you think about it and its message.… Read More

Using 48 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Cars to Spell Porsche – Video

Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Porsche, Video, Video of the Day

This video features 48 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Cars spelling out Porsche on the Estoril race track in Brazil. The video shows what goes into making all these cars spell out the words. One thing I found interesting was that this few minute video actually took 23 hours to shoot, so it was a big undertaking. The video is to help promote the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Challenge Brazil.… Read More

A Zero Emissions Porsche 911 GT3 – Video

Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Porsche, Video, Video of the Week

Well, we have seen a lot of on-off Porsche 911 GT3s. Most tuners try to get these already fast cars to the next level. However, for some people reducing emissions from an automobile is more important then speed. As a result of this one “tuner” (for lack of a better term) has built a zero emission Porsche 911 GT3. Due to its power source (which adds no weight to the car if you figure in the weight of the driver) it has made this very quick vehicle much slower.… Read More
