The Porsche 911 Targa with its integral roll bar was as much a product of necessity as creativity. Safety advocates in the 1960s were targeting convertibles as inherently dangerous at the same time that Porsche was planning to produce its new 911 with a drop top. The imaginative solution was… viola!… a built-in roll bar […]
The Porsche 911 has always been a fantastic sports car, but the GT2 made it something more. This year, the GT2 celebrates 25 years of terrorizing supercars (and some of its own drivers), so Porsche offered a retrospective. Launched in 1995, the GT2 was originally conceived as a racing homologation special for the GT2 class, […]

In 1978, Porsche updated and upgraded its 911S with a 3.0-liter engine that matched the displacement, albeit not the power, of its former Turbo Carrera model. Voila! The 911S became the 911SC, which was available as a coupe or with a Targa top. In 1983, its final year of production, the car was available as […]

It is now quite a few years ago that Porsche had its American headquarters in Reno, Nevada. With so many of its customers in nearby California, and from the perspective of corporate taxation, the move from New Jersey probably made sense.
