Porsche Wins 2015 24hr of Le Mans

Jun 14, 2015 - 10:00 AM - by K-Man S
Rain threatened near the end of the twice around the clock endurance classic, but it didn't dampen the resolve of the No. 19 Porsche Team 919 Hybrid shared by Earl Bamber, Nick Tandy and Nico Hülkenberg who took victory for Porsche. It was the first Le Mans win for all three drivers, while Bamber and Hülkenberg were both rookies!

Their sister car, the No. 17 wheeled by Mark Webber, Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley were right behind them in second. Audi still made the podium; defending race winners Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer were third in the No. 7 Audi Sport Team Joest Audi R18 e-tron quattro.

After a dominating performance, the No. 47 KCMG Oreca 05 - Nissan piloted by Matthew Howson, Richard Bradley and Nicolas Lapierre win the LM P2 category. It is the first win for a Chinese team at the legendary Le Mans race. The defending race winners, No. 38 Jota Sport... [Read More]

Planet 9 helping in Nepal

Jun 08, 2015 - 12:29 PM - by K-Man S
Recently it came to my attention that one of the developers who assists me with this site was not as reachable as he once was. A couple of projects that we had scheduled to be done on this site had fallen behind schedule. When I was finally able to reach Steven I discovered why. Rather than me tell you about it I thought I would simply share Steven's words with you directly:

981 Boxster Spyder is out!

Mar 31, 2015 - 6:51 PM - by subshooter

Atlanta. Porsche is highlighting the 2015 convertible season by celebrating the world premiere of the new Boxster Spyder. This pure sports car will make its debut at the New York International Auto Show. The new top model of the Boxster range retains the unique and unmistakable character of the previous Spyder, which has already attained cult status. For example, the classic roadster top is still opened and closed by hand, and the Boxster Spyder is only available with a manual transmission, benefiting both weight savings and driver enjoyment.
Staying true to roadster DNA, the Boxster Spyder offers a traditional sports-car driving experience combined with truly exceptional performance. This includes a firm sport suspension with a 20-mm lower ride height, brakes taken from the 911 Carrera S, more direct steering, and a 3.8-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with an output of 375 hp, culminating in a...

NY Auto Show: Apple Acquires Porsche for 55.0B €

Mar 31, 2015 - 1:33 PM - by K-Man S
NEW YORK (March 31, 2015) - Tim Cook and Matthias Müller will take the stage in New York tomorrow to announce the acquisition of Porsche AG for approximately 55.0B€. Rumors of a forthcoming Apple Car may have been premature as it appears now that Apple will acquire all Porsche AG assets which include Porsche's soon to be released new hybrid electric Panamera sports sedan and Cayenne SUV. Preliminary indications are that all upcoming Porsche models will feature Apple's CarPlay system that can be operated via voice, touchscreen or physical controls. The first such vehicle will be the new just announced Porsche Panamera Edition Panamera. Hans-Gerd Bode briefly responded to initial press requests with the response that "Porsche will be integrating Apple technology and services while Apple will gain access to Porsche engineering and design to develop future transportation systems." Examples given include that Porsche Roadside... [Read More]

Thoughts on Forum Changes

Dear Members,
With the recent changes to the Google site ranking formulas as well as the greater number of mobile users we receive I am contemplating some changes to the site and wanted to solicit feedback from you our member population. First let me state where we are at the moment. We are currently using Vbulletin version 4.2.2 (newest in the 4 series) which was a nice upgrade over a year ago from the old 3 series that we used for a number of years prior. The problem with VB4 is that it isn't current, VB5 I believe is the current platform, and it was never designed for mobile, anything mobile related is an add-on. For example Tapatalk is an add-on, Topify (mobile web view of the site) is an add-on, in essence trying to patch up Vbulletin to be more with the times. In addition Vbulletin is owned by Internet Brands, Internet Brands is a competitor to Planet-9 in that IB owns other automotive websites like rennlist and 6speed, etc. So when I am talking to a prospective...
