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.

Jay Leno chats with Magnus Walker about his 1972 Porsche 911 72STR

Tue, 26 Mar 2013 19:58:00 EST

Magnus Walker has stopped by the Big Dog Garage again to pay Jay Leno a visit in the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage. This time, the Porsche builder brought along his 1972 911 72STR 002. Walker calls the machine his best build to date, and the car is a rolling "best of" from Porsches past, rocking some of the more attractive elements pulled from a wide arc of 911 model years. Of course, the machine also wears a few signature Walker touches, including flush-mount turning indicators, a center-hood fuel filler and plenty of louver work.
Unlike some of Walker's other creations, the 72STR 002 is clean enough to lick. Leno seems suitably impressed with the creation, and while apparently isn't typically a fan of Porsche models in general, Walker's tastefully modified 911 has him singing a different tune. You can check out the car in the video below.

NHTSA closes probe into 2011 Porsche 911 coolant leaks

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 18:30:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced that it will end its investigation into rapid coolant loss in 24,635 Porsche 911s built between 2001 and 2011. The models affected included the standard 911, GT2, GT3 and Turbo, as well as their variants (GT2 RS, GT3 RS and Turbo S).
NHTSA was investigating for "rapid coolant loss caused by coolant pipe-fitting failure, allegedly resulting in vehicle disablement and/or loss of vehicle control due to reduced traction for the affected vehicle or following traffic," according to the regulators website. "Most of the leak complaints did not appear to involve complete separation of the fittings and many were detected when the vehicle was parked," said NHTSA's statement.
There were 63 complaints and 336 warranty claims, although the investigation was initiated after ten complaints from customers. There have been no reports of crashes or injuries attributed to rapid coolant loss.

Porsche 918 Spyder gets tiny recall for rear control arms

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 11:01:00 EST

As the recent US recall of a single Koenigsegg Agera shows, even low-production supercars aren't immune from safety campaigns. Now, there's another example that even the fastest cars can have their faults. The Porsche 918 Spyder is a pretty fantastic vehicle for its ability to mix hybrid fuel economy and incredible amounts of power, but Porsche has a problem on a few units of its halo model.
According to the recall document from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Porsche needs to inspect and possibly repair five 918s in the US because the rear axle control arms may break, which could cause a loss of control while driving. In the full defect notice, Porsche says that it first noticed the problem on June 26 when the parts failed during "heavy duty durability testing (extreme race conditions)" at the Nardo test track in Italy. It transported the components back to the company's lab for inspection, and on July 18 it issued a stop-sale to inspect the suspension parts on the supercar. The automaker also contacted owners by phone to warn them not to use the car on track, until repaired.
The affected 918s will be inspected, and if the cars have the bad parts, the control arms are will be replaced. Obviously, this will be done at no cost to owners. According to a Porsche spokesperson speaking to Autoblog, in addition to the five US cars potentially affected, there were 45 worldwide. All of the cars have now been checked.
