Here comes Blue Arrow, a Porsche 911 (991) Turbo S tuned by Edo Competition that is even quicker and faster than the 911 GT2 RS. Moreover, it is definitely the most powerful, quickest and fastest 991 Turbo S there is so far.
There is no denying that any Porsche sports car is an epitome of quickness and speed. Among the current generation (seventh) of the Porsche 911 – the Porsche 991 – the 911 GT2 RS takes the cake. But when the 911 GT2 RS is taken out of the equation, the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is definitely a serious monster.
Edo Competition has toyed around the idea of creating the most powerful, quickest and fastest version of the Porsche 991 Turbo S. Of course, a standard 991 Turbo S is not, in any way, underpowered. Sitting at the heart of the 991 Turbo S is a 3.8 liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that could provide up to 580 PS (427 hp) in output and up to 700 Nm in torque, thanks to turbochargers with a larger impeller. At this power level, the Porsche 991 Turbo could accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 330 km/h.Read the entire article Edo Competition’s Blue Arrow is the quickest and fastest Porsche 911 (991) Turbo S

The Porsche exclusive configurator provides a Paint to Sample scheme with 15 various shades to choose from. This includes the very stunning Miami Blue that costs 4,220 USD.

Porsche’s official configurator also gives its customers a choice between four different wheel finishes for the new 911 GT3.

The Adaptive Sports Seats on the other hand costs around 2,640 USD.Read the entire article Porsche releases 2018 911 GT3 official online configurator
A lot of heads turned in Austria when a police car pulled over. Not because there was an accident, but because it was a new Porsche 911. For decades now, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Interior has been known to drive around the nicest cars, as Porsche used to supply cars to the country's law enforcement agencies.
This partnership first began in the 1960s and now has been taken to the 21st century. Therefore, the automaker provided the agency with a brand new 911 Carrera to ensure the country's safety, as they pull over traffic offenders.
Naturally, Porsche had to give the Carrera a little bit of customization to make it look like a police car. The 911 was designed with a police livery, and blue flashing lights to match. Not to mention the radio system required by police. We learned that the Porsche is a free loan and will also be used by the local Federal Ministry of Interior until the fourth quarter of the year.Read the entire article Porsche 911 Carrera revealed in police livery in Austria
Last month, we witnessed the reveal of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS at the E3 video game expo. It was a surprise for many to see it at that event instead of an auto show, but everybody was ecstatic to finally see the actual model after countless spy shots, reports, and previews. And again, it attended this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, with more power, and complete specs to share with us.
The 690 horsepower (515 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-metres) of torque that the supercar produces comes from the 3.8-liter, flat-six engine the same as the 911 Turbo S. The engine has been paired with large turbochargers and extra cooling system, and only weighs a total of 3,241 pounds (1,470 kilograms) when the gas tank is filled. The newly revealed Porsche 911 GT2 RS is way more powerful than its predecessor which was down by 79 horsepower (59 kilowatts) and 37 pound-feet (50 Nm) of torque.
With that engine found under its hood, the 911 can sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 2.7 seconds, and a few milliseconds to get to 62 mph (100 kph). It has this ability to max out at 211 mph (340 kph). Paired to that engine is a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox that gives power to the 21-inch rear wheels. The new extra-light titanium exhaust system is in charge of its loud roar, this upgrade is 15 pounds (6.8 kg) lighter than what the 911 Turbo had.Read the entire article 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS takes the spotlight at Goodwood
Earlier this month, Porsche introduced to us the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. The car wore a Golden Yellow Metallic paint. The same time it was launched, the company said to interviewers that a “range of other carefully selected exterior colours” will be offered for the same model.
They did not mention when the new shades will be revealed, but the company has just shared photos of the special edition 911 Turbo S in other liveries. The most eye-catching of them all would probably still be the one in gold, but the other two, in gray and in white, are also looking good. All three models have matching accents - that is a pair of carbon strips on the front hood and the roof.
The company ensures that the Exclusive Series looks distinct from the standard Turbo S, by adding more carbon fiber accents all over. What makes it even more unique though is that only 500 units will be produced, and each of them features a special plaque mounted on the passenger’s side to prove its exclusivity.Read the entire article 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series shown in new photos
Porsche definitely adores variety. You’ll see what we mean if you browse through the official company's website that shows a plethora of various 911 models. And now, the German marque will add one more to the collection: the new high-powered, limited version of the 911 Turbo gets a bright yellow finish and it definitely is premium looking.
The Stuttgart-based company has gifted us once again with another 911 automobile, and this is the most expensive-looking automobile coming from Porsche to date. We welcome the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. How exclusive… you may want to know. Only 500 units will be produced worldwide.
But this 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series will not only flaunt its unique yellow aesthetic, it also comes with exceptional power. In fact, it’s the most powerful 911 Turbo S ever.Read the entire article 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series gets the Midas touch treatment plus 607 hp
The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS that made its debut not so long ago at the E3 video game expo in Los Angeles has already been sold out according to reports. That’s surprisingly quick and highly impressive for the 700-horsepower (521 kilowatts) sports car. It sold so fast that you probably didn’t even have enough time to consider it.
AutoBild says that Porsche’s plan is to produce 1,000 units of the 911 GT2 RS, and that every single one of them had already been accounted for. The company did mention that some of those examples will be reserved for 918 owners, as they get priority access to this model. Apparently, the 911 GT2 RS has a starting price of €260,000 or €289,000 in Europe. Deliveries will begin by fall this year. However, the company has not confirmed any of these details shared to us yet.
To make a more aggressive vehicle, the sports car has been provided with an aero package that is noticeable in the front and rear fascia - with a wide body kit as well as a massive rear wing. Throughout the inside the cabin, you’ll find carbon fiber trimmings, and to keep the weight down, a set of lightweight wheels has been put in.Read the entire article Limited edition 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is now totally sold out
The E3 video game expo this year isn’t just about video games. During last weekend’s expo at Los Angeles, Porsche surprised many with the new 911 GT2 RS. Not only does it look visually stunning in person, but it left people talking about the car’s horsepower.
Before it made its appearance, we heard rumours that the new 911 would be producing more than 640 horsepower. But during the event, it was confirmed by Automobile Magazine that the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS can produce 700 horsepower (521 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet of torque (749 Newton-metres), as they were one of the first few to hitch a ride in the sports car. However, Porsche does not confirm the publication’s statement and calls it a “speculation”.
Whether that is true or not, what we know is that the power comes from a 3.8-liter biturbo inline-six. In just 2.9 seconds, the 911 GT2 RS can speed up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour), and it has a top speed of 212 miles per hour (341 kilometers per hour). And for the record, the RS only weighs 3,306 pounds (1,500 kilograms). Supposedly.Read the entire article 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS will arrive with 700 hp and 749 Nm of torque
Porsche has created some of the world’s most iconic and timeless vehicles. One of them is the oblong-shaped Porsche 911, a timeless beauty impossible to duplicate. The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS is one of these timeless beauties and is particularly famous (and coveted) amongst collectors. The 911 was a big hit in the early 70s because of the 2.7 RS, Porsche’s “hardcore homologation special” which ultimately became a fearsome track contender. The year after the release of the 2.7 RS, Porsche wanted to do something out of the ordinary and thus released the 3.0-liter RS, stepping its game up in the race track.
This super rare 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RS is considered to be more special than its 1973 predecessor and is quite a sight to behold for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
To know that these collector’s items still exist is quite thrilling especially for fans and collectors alike. Recently, it has been reported that one of six examples of the right-hand drive Carrera 3.0 RS can be found in the United Kingdom. Let’s take a look.Read the entire article Rare Mexico Blue RHD 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RS up for grabs in the UK
Just when we concluded that all the best in line Porsche vehicles have been hauled up by the savvy collectors and aesthetically doubtful resto-mod outfits, an uber rare 1993 Porsche Carrera RSR 3.8 with only six miles, let me repeat, only six miles (10 km) on its odometer was up for auction in RM Sotheby's Villa Erba. But if you’re only hearing about this now, your chance is now gone as this air-cooled 911s was sold for an awesome $2.25 million at the said auction. What a lucky, lucky collector!
Last week, the dapper 1996 Porsche 911 GT2 Evo hauled an impressive $1.45 million at an auction, and only recently another Porsche 911 commanded a remarkable 6 figure price following a fierce bidding war. The vehicle we are talking about is the one-of-a-kind 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 '93 that was just used for a mere 6 miles (10 km). In the early 90s, an interested customer cannot just go to a local Porsche dealer and purchase an RSR right then and there. You have to be a serious purchaser that is backed up with serious cash in your bank account.
The German automaker only produced 51 units of this model and each one was factory ordered. Furthermore, what sets it apart from its fellow units is that it's the only one of 2 that flaunts a fully trimmed interior. Best thing is that the exclusive automobile was finished inside with an eye catching red leather upholstery. The lucky to-be owner specifically requested from the German automaker to paint the car in Polar Silver Metallic, and color the wheel's spokes in Amethyst Metallic with its brake callipers adorned in gold to showcase an incredible contrast. The unique RSR boasts of a 3.8 L engine that is able to create 350 hP and 284 lb-ft (385 Newton-meters) of torque through its enhanced 5 speed manual gearbox.Read the entire article Practically new 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 fetches $2.25 million at Sotheby's Auction
Silverstone Auctions revealed that its May Sale raked in a total of £3.6 million with its sales rate at 72%. In fact, the highest value breached the half million mark with the 1993 Porsche 911 (964) Turbo S Leichtbau being sold for £556,875, which is £81,000 higher than that of the lower estimate.
This is the same model that made the auction all the more exciting as it was the site of a strong bidding war. Tension became high when the bidding was eventually brought down to two. The air was also full of excitement as the two bidders initially were so bold and didn’t want to give up the vehicle. It eventually ended when the price reached more than half a million.
According to Silverstone Auctions Managing Director Nick Whale, it was indeed remarkable to see such excitement and drama and this was highlighted further with the excellent results for the vendors.Read the entire article 1964 Porsche 911 (964) Turbo S Leichtbau sold for more than half a million at Silverstone’s May Sale
The one-millionth unit of the Porsche 911 is here. Fifty-four years after the iconic 911 was first introduced, Porsche has finally reached the one million count on the 11th of May at their factory in Zuffenhausen. It rolled out of the production line as an Irish Green Carrera S - and this is actually what Australian race car driver Mark Webber teased us with.
Though one million in a span of over half a century does not sound much, the 911 is actually quite popular considering that it is an expensive model. In comparison, that number is already impressive for a sports car, but then again, it is unusual for automakers to keep the same model line alive for 10 years, even more in this case. In fact, the company says that 70 percent of all 911s are probably road worthy still. In other words, there are about 700,000 units of the 911 that are still in good shape all over the world today.
So, what makes this one extra special apart from its production number? This 911 is a rear wheel drive Carrera S, equipped with an upgraded flat-six engine that produces 450 horsepower. It’s similar to the very first model but it’s better as it comes in a seven-speed manual transmission.Read the entire article One millionth Porsche 911 rolls out of the production line
Packing a wholesome amount of 450 hp (335kW), a brand new Porsche 911 GTS has enough push to drive from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds before topping off at 193 miles per hour (310 kilometers per hour). That’s almost the same amount of power as with other competing brands.
Like all GTS models, the latest 911 model is a step ahead of the entry level model but it doesn’t go too far when compared with the GT3 or Turbo variants. SpeedArt Automobiledesign on one hand came up with a tuned version of a Porsche 911 Carrera S that is unbelievably faster than a 911 GTS. Come to think of it, we’ve got something here that stands right at the middle of a GTS and the more powerful Turbo or GT3 models.
Behind this comes an added power of 30hp (22kW) plus 37lb-ft (50Nm) of torque under the hood. With now a total of 480hp (358kW) and with a torque output of up to 442 lb-ft (600Nm), the German tuner’s version can accelerate to 60mph (96km/h) in as short as 3.4 seconds--- beating the record on any Porsche GTS or any normal 911 Carrera S for that matter. But of course, you can always thank the additional 30hp for that same reason.Read the entire article Speedart Porsche 911 Carrera S could beat the 911 GTS on the clock with a new tuning package
Many automotive companies bring their cars to the Nurburgring with hopes that their cars would achieve records and beat out their rivals or even their predecessors themselves. Doing laps at Nurburging is a terrific way of gauging how far they’ve gone when it comes to performance.
Recently, Porsche took out its brand new 2018 911 GT3 for a test ride at the Nurburgring. The 2018 model certainly is more powerful than its predecessor knowing that it comes with an upgraded engine. So how much more powerful is it compared to the older model? Well, in just one day, it was able to beat the outgoing model by over 12 seconds around the Nurburgring, now making it one of the fastest cars to ever lap the ‘Ring. That is all thanks to the additional 25 horsepower (18 kilowatts) it is packed with.
The 2018 911 GT3 finished with a lap time of 7:12.7, exactly 12.3 seconds faster than its predecessor. It is now also considered the second fastest Porsche in the Nurburgring, following the 918 Spyder with a 6:57 lap time, which packs a whopping 887 horsepower (661 kilowatt) engine. The 918 took the crown way back in 2013.Read the entire article Another Nurburgring record is set: 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 is 12.3 seconds faster than outgoing model
The already iconic 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 race car (Type 964) is a rare classic to come by. After all, Porsche only built 51 examples of the Turbo-bodied racing version of the Carrera RS. Now, an example of the 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR will be placed under the hammer at an auction by RM Sotheby’s in Villa Erba, Italy. It will be an ultra-rare classic, considering that this 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR is literally new once cleaned up.
While this particular Porsche 911 Carrera RSR was built around 25 years ago, this race car is as good a pristine. Its odometer has logged only 10 kilometers, which is basically the distance covered upon delivery. It has never been driven for nearly two and a half decades and has been in the hands of a private collector who opted to store this classic race car instead of parading it on the streets. In fact, its Polar Silver Metallic exterior finish and factory-applied Cosmoline coating remains untouched. Images show that dust and dirt have already accumulated in many areas of this Porsche 911 Carrera RSR; however a thorough cleanup should reveal a beautiful classic race car with the body of a Turbo.

Loyal Porsche fans, behold the imagined successor to the Porsche 918 and 911 GT1 we have all been craving for. And this needs to happen guys.
While the car enthusiasts around the world are anticipating the GT3 RS successor, sports car diehards became ecstatic with the recent unveiling of the brand new Porsche 919 Hybrid Le Mans endurance racer which is fitted with an enhanced 2.0 Liter V4 gasoline engine that delivers around 900 pure hP- a setup we rarely see nowadays. Porsche claimed that the new engine is the most efficient combustion engine to date in the history of Porsche, also paired with an 8MJ hybrid system like the LMP1 rival squad of Toyota.
The German automaker legend has a long history of modifying engines from its line-up of race cars and of applying its state-of-the-art tech to its road cars. Then here we are being treated to an eyeful of street legal prototype of the Porsche 919 LMP1 by automobile renderer veteran Jan Peisert, and man it does make our hearts race with excitement.Read the entire article 2020 Porsche 911 GT1 rendering by Jan Peisert makes our hearts race
The recent Porsche 911 is definitely considered one of the most elite sports car to grace the roads worldwide. The task of producing its successor is challenging enough for the German automobile manufacturer but it now has to put up with rendered images of the next-generation Porsche 911 due to be unveiled in 2019, likely coded as the "922".
Late last month, 2019 Porsche 911 prototypes were seen braving the cold and snow for a run, sporting a variation of the current car frame's 911 series. From the spy photos seen online, the upcoming replacement of the 911 looks to lean towards the further evolution in terms of its body style.
The front part of the super car is diving forward and is more angular, and its headlights and hood closely resemble the upcoming Mission E fully electric vehicle Porsche unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show. The Porsche Mission E, also known as the all electric 4 door sports car, has been given the go signal for production and will be the first official fully electric hybrid Porsche. It’s also unlikely to be the last.Read the entire article Rendered speculation: 2019 Porsche 911
Last year was probably Porsche’s best year ever in terms of sales. Their factory in Stuttgart delivered 237,778 cars in total, which represents a six percent increase compared to the deliveries in 2015. And as we all know, each 911 sold gives them a net profit of $17,250, making it the company’s cash cow.
Porsche decided to share the success with their hardworking employees. The company will be rewarding around 21,000 employees with a really fat paycheck this time. Now, the amount isn’t random. In case you were wondering, Porsche decided to make this incentive match the figure on its iconic 911 model.
But no, they aren’t just offering €911, instead, each employee gets €9,111 (or $9,830), not a trivial amount at all. Wow, it must be pretty awesome to work in a company that is so generous. The employees won’t get the sum in one instance. The bonus will be divided into two components. A contribution of €700 ($755) will go to the Porsche VarioRente pension scheme or to individual pension schemes, while the bigger amount at exactly €8,411 ($9,075) will go directly into their bank accounts. That’s still a pretty good deal I say, particularly since it adds to the employees’ vital retirement fund.Read the entire article Porsche employees get record-high €9,111 bonus after very successful year
