This Porsche Speedster Turbo is likely the only configuration of its type in America.  It has the svelte Speedster body combined with something the Speedster never had - power.  This 2900lb missile is insane fast once the boost hits.  First gear is so intense, I had to install street drag radials to put the power down.  The car looks spectacular with a $5000 midnight blue (with a hint of purple) paint job, whaletail wing and gorgeous rims.


The dash is perfect (looks new) with no cracks whatsoever.  The seats are ubercomfortable.  There is a 10-speaker custom stereo system nicley integrated into the interior - looks factory.

The engine features the best of everything including a fully-balance rotating assembly (by Total Engine Concepts in West Palm Beach), Kokeln ball bearing turbo, Evo cam, huge intercooler, chrome-plated intake tract to reflect heat (unlike the black version that absorbs engine heat into the intake tract), Tial 1.0Bar wastegate, Borla exhaust, and perhaps the best part an ultralight  aluminum flywheel/clutch that makes the car rev like a superbike.  This machine is an absolute missile.

I now own a Mosler, and am out of garage space, so my Speedster has to find a new home

On the negative side, the rear window is fairly clouded, there are a few rock chips in the paint from high-speed (always below the posted speed limit) adventures, and the base of the driver's seat is cracked,

The car isn't concours, but it's a gorgeous, wild, and truly unique ride that will surely bring a smile to your face every time you crank over those huge Evo cams.

Porsche busts out new Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS

Wed, 19 Mar 2014 05:33:00 EST

Baby 911. The poor man's Porsche. That's what they called the Boxster when it debuted some 20 years ago. They said the same of the first Cayman when it arrived a decade later, but they stopped saying it when the latest iterations hit the scene two years ago. That's because Zuffenhausen's entry-level models have long since stepped out of their big brother's shadow and into their own. And that's all the more true of the new Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS.
Based on the Boxster S and Cayman S, the new GTS models benefit from an enhanced 3.4-liter flat six that produces 330 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque in the roadster or 340 hp and 280 lb-ft in the coupe - representing an increase of 15 hp and 7 lb-ft in either model. Both also come with the Sport Chrono package as standard, along with adjustable suspension and 20-inch alloys, blacked out to match the dynamic headlight surrounds and other muted trim.
Those disappointed by the unavailability of a manual transmission in the fire-prone 911 GT3 will be pleased to note that a six-speed manual comes standard, but those enamored of letting a pair of clutches shift themselves seamlessly will want to spring for the optional seven-speed DCT. So equipped and with launch control engaged, the Boxster GTS will rocket from a standstill to 62 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds, while the incrementally lighter, more powerful Cayman will hit it in 4.6. Either way you're looking at a third of a second quicker than the Boxster/Cayman S. There's also a 20-millimeter lowered suspension on offer for track-day enthusiasts.

J.D. Power: Vehicle dependability at all-time high, Lexus and Porsche lead

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 19:15:00 EST


Each year, J.D. Power and Associates surveys original owners of three-year-old vehicles to find out what kinds of problems they have had experienced over the last 12 months, and then it uses this data to create its annual Vehicle Dependability Study. This means that the models in the 2013 study are 2010 model year vehicles, and J.D. Power rates each make as well as the top individual models based on how many problems were experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100).
Debunking the idea that carryover models are more dependable than new or updated models, the 2013 study found that the average carryover model experienced 133 PP100, while all-new or redesigned vehicles for the 2010 model year had 116 PP100; vehicles that received minor changes fared the best with just 111 PP100. The overall average for all makes was 126 PP100, which is the lowest figure since the findings were first issued in 1989.

2015 Porsche Cayenne S

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 11:57:00 EST

Oh, Porsche.
Just as the dust settles over the 911 GT3's no manual gearbox kerfuffle, the Germans have gone and yanked the yummy naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V8 from the Cayenne S and replaced it with a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6. Is nothing sacred in Porscheland?
Perhaps not... but that's not necessarily a bad thing. After all, Porsche famously once said they'd never build a diesel, but when they did, it was actually rather stellar.
