Built on a modified 911 body that was lightened and tuned for extreme handling. The suspension upgraded, brakes improved and a short-shifter installed for rapid gear changes. Let us know if you are in Miami, New York, Chicago or LA and ready to feel the power and prowess of a Porsche!

Porsche Says Enough Horsepower Wars—500 Is Ample

It seems that Porsche is calling for an end to the never-ending horsepower war, stating that continuous increases are unsustainable in the interest of daily driver comforts. Does that mean that companies should save their main muscle flexing for the track? Porsche GT-car leader Andreas Preuninger shared in an interview that “I’m not a believer in this horsepower monster, up, up, up, more, more, more. For my personal tastes, around 500 horsepower is enough, because 700-800 horsepower calls for bigger brakes, sturdier suspension. It gets heavier and heavier logically.” Preuninger shared that the future of Porsche sporting cars will focus … Continue reading
