Porsche Quits IMSA For Remainder of 2016

I first heard about this situation from a post on Cooper McNeil’s Facebook Page and assumed it was one team that was tired of losing and decided to quit. Which is sort of what it is. The team made the following statement about their withdrawal. “The decision to stop racing…
Incredible RWB Video

Incredible RWB Video

I’m still not sure how I feel about the bolt on fender revolution but I do like the RWB Porsches and love this RWB video. I love even more that the the RWB Porsches are hand built by one guy with basic hand tools for fitting the body parts. Akira…
DIY: Porsche 911 Cup Holder Repair (997)

DIY: Porsche 911 Cup Holder Repair (997)

The Porsche 911 sold from 2004 to 2012(997) is a great car, but the cupholders suck and constantly stop working. Generally they fail to open when you push the button. Sometimes they fail to close. The good news is that it’s an easy fix. The problem lies in this little…

Porsche GT4 Clubsport Video

Porsche GT4 Clubsport Video

The new GT4 looks incredible. Every build has been spoken for. The Clubsport option, with it’s stripped out interior is so cool that I’m sure these will sell out too. Even at $160,000. Porsche just released this promo video and its good. We don’t see the stripped out racing interior…

Porsche GT4 Clubsport

Porsche continues to dominate the sports car/ race scene with announcement of the Club Sport GT4 Cayman. Other manufacturers have track ready versions of their car, but they all fall a little short. Dodge makes the Viper ACR, and Nissan has the Nismo version of the GTR, but almost no…
1971 Nurburgring 1000km

1971 Nurburgring 1000km

The early 70’s produced some of the best race cars on the planet. Porsche was going nuts with the 908 and Ferrari was still running the 512 and had just unveiled the 312PB but it was no match for the Porsche’s. Alfa was competing with the T33 but Porsche still…

Is Vintage Racing Real Racing?

BMW Loses at the Nurburgring…Again!

BMW Loses at the Nurburgring…Again!

To quote a racing legend, “If you ain’t first, you’re last!” BMW qualified on Pole of the 2015 24hrs of the Nurburgring and finished 2nd last weekend so I guess I should be happy they are on the podium. But they lost to an Audi. “So what?” you probably say?…

EVO Ultimate Track Car

EVO Ultimate Track Car

This is the best video for determining the ultimate track car. It starts out with 80hp Caterham’s and quickly moves into “bonkers front wheel drive hatches” but then we move to the sweet spot. One of a kind bizarre track day weapons that are generally only available in the UK…

Porsche GT4: First Look

Is this the Porsche that finally beats the 911? People said the 928 with its V8 or the 944 Turbo would run with the 911, but they never really did. And here we are again 30 years later with the GT4. It's faster than the 911. The GT4 knocks it…
