Cobb's Porsche 991 Turbo tuning development continues and they are moving rapidly. Below are results for Cobb Stage I and Stage II OTS (off the shelf) tuning. These numbers are results anyone can expect with the OTS tunes and of course they can be further customized if one wishes. ...Published on 07-28-2015 06:43 PM
That is the report from the Germans at Autobild.de. It certainly is interesting and they have good German sources so we do not doubt them but it is an odd decision. We expected the 991.2 Carrera to get a smaller 2.7 liter motor than the 3.0 liter in the Carrera S. ...Published on 07-25-2015 12:21 AM
Porsche released their own photos of the 2016 991.2 prototypes they are testing just the other day. The car is getting some cosmetic changes the most noticeable of which appears to be a center exit exhaust setup for the Carrera and Carrera S models. ...Published on 07-23-2015 05:04 PM
Perhaps the worst kept secret in the automotive world is that Porsche is testing the upcoming 991.2 update for the 911 range. Usually with upcoming models manufacturers go out of their way to camouflage the cars while testing and we rely on irregular spyphotos to get an idea of what is going on. ...Published on 07-21-2015 07:23 PM
The comparison everyone has been waiting to see with laptimes included. Car and Driver compared the AMG GT S to the Porsche 911 GTS and Jaguar F-Type R but what everyone really wants to see is the AMG GT S squaring off against the 911 Turbo and Nissan GTR. ...Published on 07-21-2015 03:02 AM
This era of engine efficiency is bringing with it turbochargers and smaller motors. With naturally aspirated high revving motors being slowly phased out (with exceptions) redlines have dropped a bit. This affects even lofty producers such as Ferrari who historically managed to offer some of the highest revving motors seen in production cars. ...Published on 07-20-2015 05:53 PM
The pictures tell the whole story here. What is there really to say? The Porsche 918 Spyder is absolutely stunning inside and out. It is one of the highest performance vehicles ever produced and it successfully merges hybrid technology with high performance. ...Published on 07-18-2015 03:21 PM
Inconsistent performance is the name of the game with 991 generation Porsche 911 Turbo and S models. GIAC unofficially confirmed this issue and PorscheBoost member @sdg1871 demonstrated power loss running at events as well as on the dyno after repeated WOT blasts. ...Published on 07-17-2015 09:31 PM
Porsche 991 Turbo versus Porsche 991 Turbo S action here. The 991 Turbo is tuned by PP-Performance with their RS650 package. This package is not detailed on their website but from what we understand it consists of bolt on tuning including a piggyback box. ...Published on 07-15-2015 06:41 PM
It is not every day you can get four cars of this caliber side by side and going at it at the same time. The camera car is a stock Lamborghini Huracan which captures the action. The big brother Lamborghini Aventador is also stock. The Germans are not as they feature tunes. ...Published on 07-14-2015 12:52 AM
Interesting race here between two cars that have six cylinder motors with the same displacement. The execution of those motors and the drivelines they are mated to are completely different. The Porsche 991 GT3 has 475 horsepower from its naturally aspirated and direct injected 3.8 liter flat-6 that revs to 9000 rpm. ...Published on 07-07-2015 11:01 PM
You should know by now that the Porsche 911 range is going completely turbo with the exception of the 911 GT3 and GT3 RS. Rumors are flying about but we have what we believe are some solid details on the engine specs and output figures from close sources although specs are still being finalized.

This Audi RS7 we have seen in action before going up against a tuned BMW F82 M4 where it performed very much like a stock RS7. The tuner VAG-Doctor (no gynecologist jokes please) must have actually done some work to the RS7 this time as it does much better going up against a PP-Performance tuned Porsche 991 Turbo. ...Published on 07-06-2015 05:30 PM
Trying to interpret foreign dynos and converting their units to provide meaningful data is somewhat of a headache. For Americans, putting it on a good old Dynojet produces numbers that provide the greatest context. Still, what we can see here is that Porsche is providing exactly what they said they would and maybe a couple extra horses. ...
