2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo Redesign

2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo Redesign

The retractable rear spoiler, while cool as f*ck, is not a new concept. VW had an active spoiler on their Corrado all the way back in 1988. But, with the introduction of the 2017 Panamera Turbo, Porsche is taking things to a whole new level. At the designated speed, the spoiler n...

LuftAuto

While the German word luftgekhult literally translates to “air-cooled,” to two-time LeMans winner Patrick Long and Howie Idelson it means much more. Specifically, a brand that combines historically important (and air-cooled) cars as well as like-minded individuals in events c...

Porsche Cayman Black Edition

Porsche Cayman Black Edition

Fact: Of all the colors available for your brand new ride, none say subtle sophistication and confidence quite like black on black. Not Big Bird yellow or "look at me" red. Black. Porsche already offers a black on black “Black Edition” for several of their models, and now, th...

FB1 Race-Taxi

FB1 Race-Taxi

For all the love the VW bus gets, little to none of it is earned from its killer performance. That's what makes the FB1 Race-Taxi so wild. What appears as just a freshly painted 1962 Volkswagen T1 Bulli Van, is actually a beast with 530 horsepower and 558 pound-feet of torque. T...

Porsche's New Atlanta HQ Is An Adult Amusement Park

Porsche just spent $100 million (their largest investment outside of Germany) to build a new Porsche North America Headquarters and Porsche Experience Center that includes a laundry list of things in Atlanta (we had no idea that they've called the city home since the late 90s) th...
