Ever shopped for a private jet and thought to yourself: This jet sure is nice, but it just doesn’t seem worth the expense without a matching sports car? If that sounds like you, then you’re in luck.
The Porsche Esports Supercup will enter its third season with a couple of significant changes. There are 20 open spots.
Chloe Chambers, at the wheel of a 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder, set a new Guinness World Record for Fastest Vehicle Slalom, going around 50 cones.
The 2021 Porsche Panamera is getting a lot of new powertrains, including a Turbo S model capable of producing 620 horsepower and setting new Nürburgring records. Replacing the outgoing 2020 Panamera Turbo, the Panamera Turbo S features a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine rated at 620 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque, a substantial upgrade enabling […]
Earlier this year, Porsche declared 2019 to have been a record revenue year, with vehicle deliveries up 10 percent and sales revenue up 11 percent to €28.5 billion. At the time, we wondered if Porsche would repeat its habit of rewarding employees with a bonus. In 2019, the company granted employees €9,700 for the record […]
Is anything quite as pointless as owning a convertible car, only to virtually never drive it with the top down because the weather is either too hot or too cold? Making a climate control system that works well inside a closed car is straightforward enough, but the same unfortunately can’t be said for open-top vehicles. […]
Larry ten Voorde, the 23-year-old Dutch racing driver, has been crowned the victor of the Porsche Supercup Virtual Edition, the short substitute series for the usual Supercup season. Want A Real Porsche? PFS can make that easier Ten Voorde, who won six (real) races in last year’s Porsche Carrera Cup Germany series, performed strongly in […]
The Porsche Taycan is the only car to have been recognized not once but twice in the prestigious 2020 World Car Awards. The German automaker’s new electric sports car was named the 2020 World Luxury Car as well as the 2020 World Performance Car, claiming two of the five available awards. A total of 86 […]
We already knew that Porsche increased vehicle deliveries by 10 percent in 2019, so it comes as no surprise that Porsche has now also declared record revenues for the year. The German luxury automaker says that sales revenue rose 11 percent to €28.5 billion, with an operating profit going up 3 percent year-over-year to €4.4 […]
More than 4,900 simracers have already participated in the qualifying rounds for the Porsche Esports Supercup, an online competition that will span 10 races over the course of five months in 2020, using the iRacing video game. This is already more than twice the amount of people who attempted to qualify for the inaugural season […]
In an auto industry struggling to maintain the sales numbers of the last few years, Porsche is doing quite well. The German automaker reported that, mainly thanks to the Cayenne and Macan SUVs, 2019 Porsche deliveries had grown 10 percent globally, breaking the record that 2018 sales figures had set. Porsche delivered 280,800 vehicles in […]
The last 991-generation Porsche 911 has rolled off the production line, marking the end of a major era for the German automaker. First launched in 2011, the 991 generation was one of the biggest steps forward for the popular sports car, which boasted an aluminum-steel composite body, a new high-tech roll stabilization system, and almost […]
In October, I reported the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film would feature a new starship designed by Porsche. At the time, I thought we would have to wait for the premiere to discover what it looks like, but the automaker revealed it about a week early. Developed over the course of two […]
It’s no secret that the automotive industry is rapidly shifting toward electrified powertrains, but some manufacturers — in particular, those selling luxury sports cars to rich enthusiasts — have provided a safe haven for drivers seeking old-fashioned, high-performance internal combustion engines. But that may not be the case for much longer, as even Porsche, arguably […]
Thanks to the instant torque provided by its electric motors, the Tesla Model S was famous for its initial acceleration and ability to beat even the quickest supercars in 0-60 mph acceleration tests. But the new Tesla Model X SUV doesn’t seem to have the same advantage over its non-electrified rivals, as recently exemplified in […]
Porsche has teamed up with Lucasfilm, the production company behind Star Wars, to create a starship that will be featured in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the last film in the sequel trilogy and the one that will mark the end of the Skywalker saga. Porsche’s design team will meet regularly in Stuttgart and […]
Porsche introduced Monday the new Taycan 4S, the third and most affordable version of the automaker’s new, all-electric sports car. The Taycan 4S joins the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo in the lineup, mirroring the trim level names from the 911, though because they are electric cars, neither of the Taycan Turbo models actually […]
Porsche presented a new VR experience at the Next Visions Day at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, giving attendees a taste of what the next generation of in-car entertainment could entail. When getting inside a Porsche equipped with the technology, passengers would be able to choose between 2D and 3D experiences. In one of […]
