Vintage Top Gear Review of the Porsche 911 (964) Turbo – Video

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

The Porsche 911 (964) Turbo was quite a car in its day. In fact it is a car that is still very fast even by today’s high standards. This video of Old Top Gear shows Tiff Needell reviewing the 1993 Porsche 911 (964) Turbo. Tiff takes the then new 911 Turbo to the Millbrook proving grounds and puts the car through its paces.… Read More

Vintage Porsche 928 Advertisement – Video

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

This video is an early ad for the Porsche 928 S. The vintage video is from the early to mid-eighties and shows a different time for advertisements. The ad is slower moving than modern advertisements but has a lot of great footage of the Porsche 928 S. The 928 was a very different car for Porsche, with its powerful engine (especially for the time) in the front and a trans-axle in the back to give it great handling (essentially the same layout as the 924, 944 and 968, but with a V8).… Read More

A Tribute to the Porsche 917 – Video

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

This video is a tribute to one of the all time great race cars, the Porsche 917. The video features some vintage footage of the Porsche 917 in action on the track as well as some very nice still images. The video is pretty well done and it will make you long for the era when these Porsches ruled the track.… Read More

Five Vintage Porsche 928 Commercials – Video

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

This video is of some vintage Porsche 928 commercials. The video features five commercials from the 1980′s all of which feature a Porsche 928 model. The 928 is possibly the best GT car ever built, although because it isn’t rear or mid-engined some purists are not big fans of it. However, many more Porsche enthusiasts are fans of the Porsche 928 and can see that the front engined V8 sports car made by Porsche is a great car, even if it isn’t a more traditional Porsche.… Read More

Porsche 911 History Commercial – Video

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

My Halloween Treat

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

Yesterday was Halloween and the wife and I took our two little ones Trick or Treating. At one of the houses just down the street from where we live was an nice older gentleman that spoke with an European accent (I believe it was Irish, but could be wrong). This gentleman was wearing a Porsche Parade 50th Anniversary shirt.

The shirt prompted me to ask (after the kids got their candy of course) if he was a member of the Porsche Club of America.… Read More

Top Gear Porsche 968 vs Jaguar XJRS – Video

Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Blast from the Past

Today I am posting an old video about the Porsche 968. If you are a Top Gear fan you will find it interesting to see Jeremy Clarkson when he was a few years younger.

All Porsche owners are a big family, no matter what model each person chooses to drive. Please remember to flash you headlights whenever you pass another Porsche to acknowledge this fact.Read More

Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Blast from the Past

With the 24 Hour at Le Mans race being run yesterday it seamed like a great time to post a video reminder of what has help make Porsche the marque that it is. There is no double that Porsche’s 16 wins (the most of any automaker) at Le Mans helped make the marque the high performance marker that it has become.… Read More

Top gear Testing Porsche 959 and 993 Turbo – Blast from the Past

Posted by: David Hurth  /  Category: Blast from the Past

In today’s “Blast from the Past” we have a video from an old episode of Top Gear that tests the Porsche 959 and 993 Turbo. While you have a much better chance at getting a 993 Turbo than a 959 (although, I recently saw one for sale in the Porsche Club of America’s Panorama Classifieds), it is always fun to see one of Porsche’s greatest supercars.… Read More
