The observant among you will have noticed a change of hands as I have taken over from previous editor Dan Furr, who has done a fine job in delivering your bi-monthly Porsche reading fix. My earliest Porsche fix has to be in the form of a close family friends’ 1978 911 SC, which years later he sold on for a song, and it’s something I regret not buying to this day. I won’t divulge what the dealer offered him, as you could regard me as an idiot. Since missing out on that SC I have been lucky enough to experience all manner of 911s, new and old, each one leaving a lasting impression. In 2016 I got the opportunity to race an early SWB 911 at Le Mans Classic. A once in…

simple pleasures

On paper it’s easy to be drawn in by power and torque figures, especially when it comes to 911s, as the most powerful often look most menacing on the road, with their hunched arches and aero. Longstanding Porsche enthusiast Simon Moore has come to the realisation that for him, there is more joy to be had in extracting all 60bhp from his 1958 356 A. ‘I got my first 911 20 years ago, a Grand Prix White Carrera 3.2 on Fuchs with a whale tail. I had that for 18 months, and started doing European road trips, including going to the Austrian Grand Prix. I changed it for a 993 C2, which I really enjoyed, then moved onto a 964 3.3 turbo, which we did the Cannonball Run with,’ Simon said. The…

new panamera models announced

The Turbo S has a V8 petrol/electric powertrain developing 700 PS (514 kW) and the capability to deliver over 30 miles of all-electric range. It combines a 571 PS 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with a 100 kW (136 PS) electric motor. The new battery and optimised driving modes has increased range by up to 30 per cent. The same electric motor has also made its way into the new 4 E-Hybrid, which uses a twin-turbocharged V6 for internal combustion, bringing overall power output to 462 PS. The gross capacity of the high-voltage battery has been increased from 14.1 to 17.9 kWh, thanks to the use of optimised cells, and the driving modes have been adapted for more efficiency. Thi gives the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid an all-electric range of up to…

taycan claims ev drift record

Porsche has taken its spot in the Guinness World Records™ with the Taycan for the longest drift held by an electric vehicle. Held at the Porsche Experience Centre (PEC) Hockenheimring, it was driven by Chief Porsche Instructor Dennis Retera. Retera held the Taycan in a drift over a period of 55 minutes, which equated to 210 laps on the 200-metre drift circle. Covering a total distance of 42.171 kilometres, Retera set an average speed of 46 km/h which was good enough to earn a place in the record books. ‘When the driving stability programmes are switched off, a powerslide with the electric Porsche is extremely easy, especially of course with this model variant, which is driven exclusively via the rear wheels,’ said Retera. Guinness World Records™ official record judge Joanne Brent commented ‘We’ve…

911 rsr takes 7th imsa title

With the RSR already having achieved success in the FIA WEC, it also proved to be the car to beat in the IMSA series. At the first six meetings of 2020, the two RSR Core Autosport / works cars set pole lap times four times and lead the field over a distance of nearly 2,200 miles. The first race victory was at the ten-hour Petit Le Mans, then again at Laguna Seca, which was a first for a factory entered 911. For the season finale at Sebring, Britain’s Nick Tandy, Frédéric Makowiecki from France and Earl Bamber scored a victory with the No. 911 Porsche 911 RSR. The New Zealander celebrated twice after he clinched second place in the No. 912 car, which he shared with teammates Laurens Vanthoor from Belgium and…
