over and out…

Time flies almost as quickly as Icon Engineering’s superb 917 K replica. Indeed, it seems hardly possible I’m writing the introduction to my sixteenth issue of GT Porsche as editor. In particular, the past few months have whizzed by, the world in a united state of unrest. These are seriously fast-paced times to be living in. Writing this welcome piece is bittersweet. On the one hand, when so many magazines on the newsstand are closing, I’m delighted to be able to present you with pages packed full of Porsche porn, with special focus on the forty-fifth anniversary of the original 911 Turbo (930). On the other, it’s with a sense of sadness I announce my departure from GT Porsche. I’m off to hop into the editor’s chair of both 911 &…

standard setter

Put your foot to the floor and there’s a slug of forced induction power so potent it could out-accelerate a Ferrari. Knock it into top and you can cruise at 1,000rpm, enjoying four seats, the familiar 911 shape and class-leading luxury. The current 911 Turbo is the best of all worlds, continuing the legacy set by its predecessors — 992, 997 and even 964 alike all share a versatile skill set and take inspiration from the original icon: the 930. Turbocharging is a developing art when the firstgeneration 911 Turbo arrives in 1975. Porsche has explored the technology in its Can-Am and Carrera RSR Turbo 2.1 racers and develops the 930 road car to homologate a boosted 911 for Group 4 and Group 5 racing. The new arrival follows on from…

porsche club gb 911 challenge

For many of us, one of the biggest drawbacks of lockdown has been the obliteration of motorsport. Races have been postponed, rescheduled, even cancelled. Worse still, track attendance is the only way most series can be witnessed. Granted, our very own Tim Harvey does a grand job of commentating on the BTCC for ITV Motorsport each race weekend and, of course, we get to see Carrera Cup GB support races from the comfort of our own homes, simply by pointing a remote control at the tellybox, but if club-level racing is your thing, then getting a fix of fast fun on four wheels at many of the UK's favourite circuits has been something of a struggle. We can, of course, hope for a brighter future — one where talk of…

zef eisenberg dies in speed record attempt

Head of UK sports nutrition outfit, Maximuscle, Zef Eisenberg, has died whilst trying to break the British land speed record in his heavily modified 991 Turbo S. Through his MadMax racing team, Eisenberg was already the holder of many land speed records, all verified by the Guinness Book of World Records. As reported in the August 2019 edition of GT Porsche, he piloted his 1,200bhp 911 to 210.332mph at Pendine Sands last summer, the fastest a wheeled vehicle has ever been recorded travelling on sand. Additionally, Eisenberg achieved the fastest flying mile (one way) at 196.970mph, the fastest quarter-mile (one way) at 206.492mph and the fastest flying mile (two-way) at 187.962 mph. The Guernsey resident's latest attempt at making a dent in the history books took place at Elvington Airfield, the…

global esports series heads into new season

The successful Porsche Esports championship (run on the iRacing simulation platform) has been confirmed for its third year, kicking off on the 9th January. Treating fans and drivers to gripping sim racing action with the virtual 911 GT3 Cup during the winter months, ten rounds contested until late April make up the racing programme: in addition to storied circuits, such as the Nürburgring and Le Mans, the virtual Interlagos Grand Prix venue in Brazil, the Formula 1 street circuit of Montréal and the Hockenheimring are among the venues for the first time.

porsche presents 919 hybrid mock-up to aco

An exhibit straight from Zuffenhausen arrived in France on Saturday 19th September, when Fritz Enzinger, Vice President Motorsport at Porsche, handed over a 919 Hybrid mock-up to the President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), Pierre Fillon, head of the organisation responsible for organising the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The presentation took place on the start and finishing straight before the official start of the 88th edition of the endurance classic. “Le Mans has been essential for Porsche since 1951,” emphasises Enzinger. “The 919 Hybrid mock-up symbolises the last three overall victories that Porsche achieved in succession at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Following on from the sixteen overall victories between 1970 and 1998, Porsche was able to continue its exemplary success story with this technological masterpiece.…
