PCA—After decades of involvement in North American endurance racing, Porsche announced yesterday that it will pull the plug on its factory GTLM-class team at the end of the 2020 season, citing the economic effects of the covid-19 pandemic on the automaker.
PCA via YouTube—In Episode 6 of Tech Tactics Live, we're taking a deep dive into the new 992-generation 911 Turbo S with Frank Wiesmann, Porsche Cars North America Product Spokesperson for the 911, Boxster, and Cayman, and Rob
Sass, Editor-in-Chief of Porsche Panorama. We're also reuniting the 992 Turbo S with the 993 Turbo, which paved the way for all subsequent 911 Turbos with all-wheel drive and twin-turbochargers.
Episode airs June 10 at 8 PM EDT.
PCA—Father's Day is right around the corner, and perhaps this June 21 will be the day you don't give your dad a pair of PJs. To that end, we've assembled a gift guide filled with PCA and Porsche-related goodies that any
Porsche-loving father would appreciate. Of course, there's always a pair of pajamas.
PCA—A popular PCA member benefit is The Mart, the club’s classifieds section online and in each issue of Porsche Panorama. Mart Fresh is a bi-weekly column in which PCA media staff and guest contributors pick what they think are the "freshest" Porsches currently available, and then attempt to explain their reasoning. Up this week are a 1979 924, 1984 911 Carrera, 1998 Boxster, and 2001 911 Turbo.
PCA—Please Note: The registration date has changed to July 15, 2020 at 3 PM EDT.

We are very excited to report the sale of the One-Off GT3 RS formerly owned by Jerry Seinfeld that found a new home to a collector in California this morning. Bringing two enthusiasts together to find this extremely special GT3 a new home is not only exciting and rewarding, it is the very essence of why PCARMARKET was created. The Special Wishes Dept at Porsche commissioned this Liquid
Chrome Blue Metallic 911 for Jerry that features a never before seen bespoke ducktail-like wing that is reminiscent of and pays homage to the legendary 2.7 RS. If you missed the auction, it is worth a moment to log into the completed sales on PCARMARKET.COM and check it out. https://www.pcarmarket.com/auction/dealtank-2016-porsche-911-gt3-rs-1/
In effort to keep the excitement going, we are calling upon PCA members who are looking to sell their Porsche. Please visit

PCA—With the recent growth of PCA’s Sim Racing program, we have added a summer iRacing series before the fall Series 5 schedule begins. The Interim Summer Fun series is a great way to get started in PCA Sim Racing and will feature two weekly identical Wednesday night events, one on Eastern time and one Western time, allowing for more racer flexibility in their schedule. If you’d like to get involved in PCA Sim Racing, this is a fun and casual
way to get started and gain skills before the big fall Series 5 kick off.
PCA—As my garage door went up and the morning light began to bathe the car's taut and cohesive curves, I said to myself, "This would never get old." Instead of hopping into the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera, I paused to reflect on how simple, restrained, and unmistakable the Carrera
coupe's form is, yet how much thought and work went into its shape, gleaming in Racing Yellow paint.
PCA—The Mart will likely always be a work in progress. It’s a constant object of our attention to keep it as safe a space as we can, weeding out scammers and those posing as commercial sellers. Although it looks like little has changed for some time, we haven’t been ignoring the
presentation and usability of The Mart. In fact, we’ve been working on an improved version for well over a year. The online version made its debut on June 1, and the August issue of Porsche Panorama will reflect the changes made to the print version.
Leno's Garage via YouTube—Steve Davis joins Jay on a spirited ride in one of Singer's latest and exquisite restorations.
Motor1—Wait, how is this a Porsche? It doesn’t even have the famous crest. Surely there must be a mistake here. But it’s not – Porsche Engineering Services developed this simple sedan with the Chinese market in mind.
Electrek—The 2021 version of the Porsche Taycan electric car has leaked in the configurator in some markets, revealing that it will feature several beautiful new color options.
Ferro & Company—We’ve always been inspired by the things, people and places we admire, so for our latest limited-edition pieces, we decided to travel back to the 1960’s era car races.
From the sweet revving sound, to the exciting smell of petrol and burnt tires, to Le Man 24-hour race, where bold and fearless drivers race the unbelievably fast cars. This is where, everywhere is quite except you hear the extremely loud engines and your own heartbeat. Hands sweating, teeth grinding, eyes wide open and heads turning for 24 hours.
PCA—Due to the novel Coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19, automotive events around the world have been postponed or cancelled, and events held by and/or related to Porsche Club of America are no exception. Below is a list of PCA National and Porsche-related events and their current statuses. We will update this page as more information becomes available. PCA National-hosted events are in bold.
Road & Track—The air-cooled 1974 Porsche 911 was originally built to tackle gravel rally stages, equipped with long-travel suspension, fat off-road tires, and a 3.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine making 250 horsepower.
Autoweek—Last time I was in a Porsche 718 Spyder was on a crazy racetrack in Scotland, in the rain, and Mark Webber was driving. These things happen if you stick around long enough. Be sure and take advantage of them when they do. So when Porsche dropped off a beautiful bottomless-blue 718 Spyder, I immediately leapt into it and headed for my favorite mountain road just 15 minutes away.
Rich Builds via YouTube—Today I take an in depth look at the worlds first wrecked Porsche Taycan TURBO
Autoblog—In the 1980s, a new breed of high-performance sedans emerged letting speed-hungry motorists take all-you-can-eat turns at the horsepower counter. Porsche wanted a slice of the pie, and strong 928 sales encouraged it to look into adding a more spacious model to its range. Called 989, its answer to the BMW M5 was a 911-like sedan it spent over three years developing before consigning to the automotive attic. Here's what could have
& Track—Back in high school, my best friend managed to get the speedometer needle in his mom’s 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier— we called it the “Lier-Jet”—so far past the end of the scale that it twisted all the way back to zero. That speedo admittedly maxed at just 85 mph, but a wrapped needle meant the front wheels were doing about 125 mph. A grand accomplishment, given that the rest of the car wasn’t actually moving.
CarBuzz—Although current customer demand for them is very low, automakers and national governments see electric vehicles as the future of private transportation and are quickly adapting to that eventual reality. Take Germany, for example. The home of BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and
Volkswagen has just announced all gasoline stations across the country soon must offer electric vehicle charging as well.
Roadshow by CNET—If you want a big, fast, beautiful, luxurious EV, you have two choices. There's the ubiquitous, ever-evolving Tesla Model S and the fresh new Porsche Taycan. I've been lucky enough to spend a lot of time in both of these cars, so you know what question comes next: Which is better? Let's see if we can't find ourselves a winner.
Top Gear—Must be, ooh, about eight weeks since I agreed to look after the boss’s Panamera for “a few days”. It’s mine now (sorry CT), marooned on my driveway until we’re allowed out of our houses again, with only semi-regular trips to the supermarket for essentials to look forward
Top Gear—A Porsche head-to-head for you today. Which is the fastest road car the firm builds? The thumping twin turbo petrol power of the new 911 Turbo S, or the new age tech of the twin-motor Taycan Turbo S which, of course, contains not a single actual turbo?
Fact Check: Previous report of Porsche CEO Oliver Blume heading to VW was based on speculation
Ed.: Last week we shared a report by Reuters, which used Auto Motor und Sport as a source, that claimed Porsche CEO Oliver Blume was headed to Volkswagen to take the job of VW Brand CEO. Apparently that report was based on speculation, as there are now reports that Ralf Brandstaetter was chosen to take the position. We apologize for sharing an erroneous article.
