A 3.2-Swapped 911T is One Man’s Golden Ticket To Car Culture
2019-11-10 06:31 UTC by Chris Cushing


Before we even discuss the car, let's take a moment to behold Bark Kuyken's garage. We definitely love a good garage- somewhere where each car has some room to breathe. Somewhere that offers the flexibility to hang out, display, or work on your cars is about as good as it gets. To top it all off, Bart's garage is on the upper level of his...

Ride Onboard With The Legendary Walter Rohrl As He Puts A 718 Cayman GT4 Through Its Paces
2019-11-08 20:49 UTC by Tommy Parry


Though he's now a septuagenarian, Walter Rohrl hasn't slowed down much. He's as wiry as he was in his prime, and he still takes every outing on track—even one with a passenger sitting shotgun—very seriously. Yes, a smile occasionally breaks across his stern visage, but his focus never fades.

His famously precise driving is the result of five...

Legendary California Porsche Shop Benton Performance Suffers Fire Damage
2019-11-06 19:35 UTC by Bradley Brownell


If you don't know him personally, allow me to tell you that John Benton is an incredibly kind person, a deeply devout Porsche enthusiast, and has built some incredible cars since kicking off in 1986. While the shop is perhaps best known for building some of the best 912 and 356 flat fours in the country, John will be quick to tell you that they...

All Of The Porsches Of SEMA 2019
2019-11-06 08:06 UTC by Bradley Brownell


Going into SEMA 2019, I knew that there was going to be at least one Porsche that was worth seeing. I've been following the Baja 911 build on social media for the better part of two years, and to say I was excited to see it in person would be an understatement. This car absolutely knocked it out of the park in terms of fit, finish, and...

This Is What It’s Like To Own A 996 Turbo For A Year
2019-11-06 07:48 UTC by Tommy Parry


No creaks, no rattles, no sagging headliner, and no cracked leather. Even the interior lighting shines bright—don't expect that from BMWs of the era. There aren't many indications that this gaudy orange 996 Turbo has been rolling around this planet for the better part of two decades. It's a resilient car to say the least, though somehow it's...

2019-11-01 21:29 UTC by Bradley Brownell


Despite many other manufacturers struggling in a difficult car sales market right now, PCNA continues to gain momentum across the 2019 fiscal sales year. October 2019 saw an extra 630 units moved in comparison to the same month of 2018. That is also the most successful sales month that Porsche has seen in North America across the year thus far....

Updating The Porsche Bible: The New Edition Of Excellence Was Expected Is Bigger, Better, And More
2019-11-01 20:13 UTC by Bradley Brownell


Karl Ludvigsen is simply in his element when it comes to the history of the Porsche brand. This epic set of tomes is the most complete history of Porsche that has ever been written by anyone, bar none, end of discussion. Since I started here at FlatSixes, I've relied on the old 2008 edition of this book to provide historical context and deep dive...

This 991.2 GT3 RS Converts A Porsche Fan For Life
2019-10-31 19:33 UTC by Tommy Parry


Though Marcus Vandenberg's Roads Untraveled tends to focus on Japanese performance cars, he occasionally highlights the odd domestic or European car. He's admitted to having a soft spot for 911s in the past, but they're not exactly within his wheelhouse.

He's sampled quite a few turbocharged 911s, and a 991.1 GT3 RS, but this is arguably the...

GMG Helps A 991 GT3 Sound Better—Not That It Needed Much Help
2019-10-29 16:42 UTC by Tommy Parry


When I say that the Porsche 911 GT3/GT3 RS—particularly the 991 generation—makes one of the best sounds in the entire automotive kingdom, that's not brand loyalty talking. The scream of the 3.8/4.0-liter six is enough to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, and that's with the factory exhaust setup.

When the engine is fitted with...
