2015 Porsche e-mission

September, 2015 § Leave a comment

At least a gorgeous 4 seats Porsche! No need of create such an ugly car as Panamera and Cayenne!

A sexy concept, with two electric motors with more than 600 bhp, zero to 62 mph only in 3.5 seconds, with 310 miles of range.

I hope Porsche decide to built this concept to fight against Tesla models.

1981 Porsche 935 Street

Porsche 911 has a very recognizable design among other things because their front lights. What if… we want a flatnose 911? You’ve got the 935 Street.

Only one was built, for one of the McLaren owners! Inspired by the 935 racer that won Le Mans, Porsche Exclusive created this car from a Porsche 930 bodyshell, and take the brakes, suspension and wide-body aero from the 935 racer. A lovely BBS wheels and a nice deep metallic red colour.

Enjoy this special car.

1960 Porsche 718 RS60 spyder and 2008 Boxster

April, 2014 § Leave a comment

Porsche linked the past and the present with this 2008 limited-edition Boxster RS60 spyder. I´ve always thought that Boxster design has lost part of its essence passing from concept to real car.  I´m not a big fan of Boxster design but I like this pics so much, comparing with the silver 1960 Porsche Type 718 RS60 spyder piloted by Hans Herrmann and Olivier Gendebien. They took on and defeated the much larger and more powerful competition, this led many to begin to refer to Porsche race cars as “Giant Killers”.

The Porsche 906 Carrera 6 it’s a street-legal racing car with a 1.9 six-cylinder boxer engine and only 675kg.  But it’s special because a model of this car was my first toy, I’ve started to dream about cars with this Porsche.

1970 Porsche 917

One of the most iconic racing cars, that gives Porsche its first overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This car also is the first 12-cylinder engine from Porsche.

The blue and orange Gulf colours has turned iconic for race. Probably the most famous racing colour after the red and blue from Martini.

Of course, this car is also famous for being part of “Le Mans” film by Steve McQueen.

1986 Porsche 959

A legendary car, a passion for car’s lover, in 1986 was  the world’s fastest street-legal production car with a lot of hi-technology:   first sequential twin-turbocharger on a production car, run-flat tires equipped with a pressure monitoring system, all-wheel drive, adjustable electronically-controlled ride height, kevlar and fiberglass-reinforced plastic body panels, aluminum doors…

450bhp of driver-focused engineering distilled into its purest form!
