    by Bradley Brownell on 22 January 2019 at 9:00 pm

    Porsche's 935/78 is an iconic car in the history of the brand's motorsport development. Perhaps the ultimate extension of the 911 silhouette, the long tail, huge wing, wide fenders, and long front overhangs make this car difficult to see as having come from a road car at any point, but the center section is pure… The post Porsche’s Iconic Whale Has Been Tailored For Speed At Le Mans appeared first on FLATSIXES.          &nbs […]

    When the Cayenne debuted in 2003, Porsche was mired in controversy. The 996 defied Porsche convention, abandoning air cooling and gaining both radiators and amorphous headlights. Hot on the tails of sharpening up the 911's lighting in 2002, Porsche launched in to yet another controversy. In 2003, Porsche released an SUV. Though sharing a platform… The post Doug DeMuro Dishes on the New Cayenne Turbo appeared first on FLATSIXES.          &nbs […]

    by Bradley Brownell on 18 January 2019 at 6:34 pm

      Porsche's 1998 GT1 is a little more hardcore than the 1997 version. It has bodywork that is more aggressive, the suspension completely divorced from the road-going roots, the engine boosted to within an inch of death. This thing had one purpose only, and that was to win at Le Mans. Luckily, it did just… The post It’s Time To Watch A Couple 911 GT1s Roar Their Hearts Out appeared first on FLATSIXES.          &nbs […]
