2005 Porsche 911 on 2040-cars
Hitchins, Kentucky, United States
This beautiful one owner Artic Silver Metallic Porsche Carrera 911 Coupe was
purchased new in 2005 from Blue Grass Motorsports (Porsche Dealership),
Louisville, KY. The dealership performed all maintenance. I purchased this
car to compliment the Cayenne Turbo SUV as a pampered weekend sports car.
Always garaged and never driven in rain or snow. In addition, it has never been
smoked in and even retains some of that new interior leather feel.
This is a luxury Porsche Carrera 4S line up that includes factory built-in
Sport Exhaust System, Storage Lid Bin W/Porsche Crest, Thicker Racing Style
Steering Wheel, Sport Speed Shifter, Custom Tailoring, and Special 20 inch
aftermarket Wheel Package.
With a keen eye, the only thing you could find beyond all the sleek 911 beauty
is a barely visible shopping cart mark.

Porsche marketers are having a field day with the 918 Spyder after some last-minute tuning improved the car's performance. They now say that it's so fast it's already beaten itself. Let us explain: Using a Weissach package-equipped 918 as an example (which reduces the plug-in hybrid supercar's weight through the deletion of some interior items, more generous use of carbon fiber and magnesium wheels), the car's previous official 0-62 miles-per-hour time of 2.8 seconds has been cut to 2.6. Additionally, 0-124 mph takes 7.2 seconds and 0-186 mph is dispatched in 19.9 seconds, times that were reduced by half a second and 2.1 seconds, respectively.
In all-electric mode, a non-Weissach pack 918 does 0-62 mph in 6.2 seconds (with the package, 6.1 seconds), down from 6.9 seconds. Efficiency is also improved thanks to the final tuning. The New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) rating of a Weissach pack-equipped car equates to 94 miles per gallon, up three mpg compared to before. That's pretty good for a car with 887 horsepower!
Check out the press release below for more details on how Porsche's final tuning measures improved its flagship supercar.
The Porsche 911 GT3 is a very, very good performance car. Yes, we know this is like saying fire is hot and a shovel to the head hurts. What's different about this proclamation, then? Well, we bring up the 911 GT3's inherent goodness because our friends at Road & Track have named it their 2015 performance car of the year.
This is, our joking aside, a big accomplishment for the 911 GT3, due largely to the field of cars it beat out. There were many equally track-focused wonders in attendance, including the Ferrari 458 Speciale, Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 and Dodge Viper SRT TA, as well as more capable everyday vehicles, like the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, BMW M3 and Ford Mustang GT.
But it was the 475-horsepower, rear-engined track star that R&T fell for, with editor-in-chief Larry Webster calling out the Porsche's ridiculous, howling, 9,000-rpm redline, while other editors cited its phenomenal handling character.
