The Porsche 911 has always been a fantastic sports car, but the GT2 made it something more.

Launched in 1995, the GT2 was originally conceived as a racing homologation special for the GT2 class, […]

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. However, it didn’t take very long for German executives to tire of the even […]
Many people believe that the air-cooled Porsche 911 market is inflated to the point that they have become unaffordable. I beg to differ. In the past 9 months, the prices on those sports cars have fallen quite a bit, and if you spend time shopping, you can find a nice 911 for less than $30,000. […]
