The Giant Killers

While most automotive designers of the era were focused on creating slippery body shapes in order to cheat wind resistance, 22-year-old German-born engineer Michael May believed there was great potential to harness the air flowing around the car to channel horsepower to the ground more effectively, simultaneously improving handling characteristics in corners and adding stability […]

Four Cam Jam 2022 (short film)

Our first Four Cam Jam began five years ago as a celebration of Porsche’s early competition history and focused specifically on the early Four-Cam equipped Carreras and Spyders.

1951 Porsche 356 Split-Windshield Coupe Chassis 5511

Without question, the 356 Split-Windshield coupes are an integral milestone in Porsche’s history and are arguably one of the most beautifully styled examples of the 356 models. The production cars made in Stuttgart prior to March 1952 were distinguished by having a two-piece windshield.

Cam speaks about his race day run to the summit of Pikes Peak

Surreal. A single adjective that encapsulates our first experience at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

The 959- Sport vs Komfort

When Porsche debuted the 959 in 1986, it was quite easily the most technologically advanced car in the world.

RS Invitational 2022

Back in 2020, while attending the 23rd running of Petit Le Mans, the idea for the RS Invitational was born while sitting at lunch in the Podium Club of the newly constructed Michelin Tower.

The RS That Never Was: The G-Body 911 Carrera Club Sport

By the late 1980s, the 911 had grown heavy and soft. Power windows and seats, powered sunroofs, more powerful audio systems with multiple speakers, extra sound deadening, climate control- all items that made the 911 Carrera substantially more luxurious, but at the cost of the agility and visceral driving experience that had made the 911 […]

2021: A Year in Review

The Biblical account of David and Goliath is a lesson of courage, faith, and overcoming a monumental feat that seems to be impossible.

Critical Stages of a full Concours-level restoration- 1964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet 160790

One of the many critical stages of a full Concours-level restoration is the disassembly phase.

The Ingram Collection 904 Carrera GTS at Monterey Car week

In the pitch black of the wee hours of the morning, the stillness was disrupted by the 904’s engine roaring to life. The ruckus from the Sebring exhaust seemed to resonate for miles and certainly served as an early alarm clock to the residents of 17 Mile Drive. It was just after 3 am on […]

Preserving a Family Legacy: Glenn Jividen’s 356A 1600 Super

The Road To Pikes Peak: The Race to the Clouds

It’s an incredibly difficult task to attempt to describe the intensity of emotion on race day at Pikes Peak, let alone whittle down the 4,000+ images taken at the starting line to just a handful to support those words. The mountain has gravity and a power that can be felt as soon as you reach […]

Fresh Brewed & Air Cooled: Grant Larson

“Every time we do a car, we break it down into three phases, starting with architecture which is the proportions of the car and its visual message, the styling or design look, and finally the details, “the small things that make a Porsche a Porsche.” Grant joined Porsche in 1989, a period where the company […]

RS Invitational 2021

“Automobiles are not just static blobs of the material past. They are kinetic. They are phenomenological.

The 930: Porsche’s First Supercar

The 930 came into existence in perhaps one of the worst possible time periods for an auto manufacturer to debut its first supercar, yet the 911 Turbo that was still in its infancy became one of the most impactful models in the 911 lineup and one that continues to set performance standards year after year.  […]

From motorsports to the motorway: The Fuhrmann four-cam engine and the 356 Carrera

The Road to Pikes Peak: Road Scholars 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport delivery

We pulled into the monochromatic valley of light grey concrete, punctuated only by the white doors and green numbers of the loading bay doors and the white trucks neatly arranged in the vicinity.

Genesis and Omega: The 356A Carrera GS GT & the type 980 Carrera GT

Side by side, the Carrera GT of 1957 and the Carrera GT of 2004 are a world apart.

A Rennen Retreat- 911R & Sports-Purpose 911 drive

Piëch to Peak had left us with a lingering buzz of adrenaline months after its conclusion. Of course, it wasn’t long before the participants began asking “What’s next?”.

The Audrain Collection’s 10k Mile, All-Original Speedster

The Unsung Hero: 924 GTS Clubsport

It might not typically be the first model that comes to mind when it comes to Porsche’s motorsport lineage, but the 924 proved to be a serious competitor in multiple classes once engineers were tasked with massaging Porsche’s first front-engined, water-cooled offering to be ready for competition. The 924 homologation examples were particularly exciting, although […]

Jeff Zwart Places 2nd in Class at Pikes Peak

If the famed Nordschleife was disconnected at the start/finish line and laid out along the side of the mountain, the two courses would be eerily similar.

COVID-19 and the Collector Car Market

It seems like just yesterday that I was sitting in a room full of smart people during the Scottsdale Auto Auction Week this past January and the topic of Black Swan events predominated the discussion. Black Swan became the hyperbolic buzz phrase during the week. There was much speculation about the economic ramifications for the collector car market if such an event transpired.
