New Porsche 911 GT3 RS on the Autobahn

  New Porsche 911 GT3 RS on the Autobahn That's 186 mph. At night. On public roads.Porsche took the new GT3 RS to the Nurburgring a few weeks back, where it set a wildly quick 6:56.4 lap time, beating out cars like the 918 Spyder, Aventador SV, and Viper ACR. It's worth noting the GT3 did all this without the assistance of all-wheel drive or forced induction.

“Most cakes look tasty with a little icing on top,” says Paul Stephens, “but only by cutting a slice, and trying the ingredients inside, do you discover if it’s really a good cake.”

Повторите попытку позже. Опубликовано: 5 июл. 2018 г. The Paul Stephens Le Mans Classic Clubsport is a bespoke Porsche 911 that pays homage to the legendary 1973 2.7 RS . We head down to Apsley Tailors to take a look at this stunning example.

That’s the philosophy behind the (deep breath) Paul Stephens Le Mans Classic Clubsport: a bespoke, British-built Porsche 911 with some very appetising ingredients indeed.

Here’s a taster: a 300hp flat-six, lightweight composite bodywork, a stripped-out interior and a £250,000 price tag. Think of the PSLMCC (as it shall henceforth be abbreviated) as a half-price alternative to the money-no-object Singer 911 and you’re on the right lines. Only 10 examples will be made.

We attended the car’s London launch and chatted to Paul about the project. Read on and watch our exclusive video to learn more.

Like many custom Porsches, the PSLMCC has been ‘backdated’ to make it look older than it is. The styling is inspired by the iconic 1973 911 2.7 RS (and related RSR racer) but each car starts life as humble late-1980s 3.2 Carrera.

Valet Wedges Porsche 911 Under Subaru, Creates Tower Of Boxer Engines

  Valet Wedges Porsche 911 Under Subaru, Creates Tower Of Boxer Engines Some poor, poor valet in Sydney, Australia somehow managed to stuff a client’s Porsche 911 Carrera under the end of a parked Subaru Crosstrek, creating a lovely mound of boxer-engine goodness. This happened outside of the Hyatt Regency Sydney, and actually resulted in the valet getting stuck inside the Porsche, The Sydney Morning Heraldreports. The news site quotes the hotel’s director of sales and marketing, Matthew Talbot, who described the extraction process, saying: “Luckily the car underneath had a soft top, so [emergency services] were able to cut open that soft canopy and [they] got our diver out of there.

This particular Porsche 911 , which was sent to Singer for modification by Scott Blattner, won't be the only one to benefit from the work. According to Singer , it will offer parts and technology developed on this project to 75 other clients. Those vehicles won't be like Blattner's though, since Singer works

Job one is the body shell, which is rebuilt to “as new” condition. Paul Stephens’ workshop – based near Sudbury, Suffolk – de-seams the roof panel, removes the sunroof (if fitted) and bolts on fibreglass composite front and rear bumpers.

The engine lid is also composite, shaped into a ducktail spoiler that, again, pays homage to the 2.7 RS, although its profile is actually modelled on the 997 Sport Classic. An aluminium bonnet and tiny, aerodynamic door mirrors help trim vital kilos, too.

Air-cooled cool

The heart of the PSLMCC is an air-cooled flat-six, bored out to 3.4 litres and modified with an ITB injection system, GT3 RS plenum, RS-spec cams, a lightened and balanced crankshaft, new conrods and a lighter flywheel. Modern engine management comes courtesy of a programmable ECU, which is mapped in-house.

Driving the rear wheels via Porsche’s proven G50 five-speed manual gearbox, plus a limited-slip differential, the 911 hits 60mph in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 175mph.

However, straight-line speed is hardly this car’s raison d’être. Compact dimensions (shorter and narrower than a current Cayman) and a kerb weight of just 970kg (a new 911 Carrera is 1,505kg), should make it sublime on rural roads.

Lightweight or Touring

That quoted 970kg applies to the Lightweight version of the PSLMCC and, incidentally, is near-as-dammit identical to the 2.7 RS Lightweight. There’s also a more luxurious Touring spec – as per the car in our photos – which tips the scales at 1,075kg. In a nod to the original factory option codes, Paul refers to the cars as ‘M471’ and ‘M472’ respectively.

The Lightweight is a no-frills driving machine, with thinner carpets, minimal sound proofing, manual front windows, Lexan plastic rear windows, no central locking, non-tilting seats, no glovebox lid and a single sun visor. The Touring gets electric windows, plusher trim and a full complement of sun shades. Air conditioning is available on both versions at extra cost.

Porsche 911 Mission E Rendering Imagines An Enticing Electric Coupe

  Porsche 911 Mission E Rendering Imagines An Enticing Electric Coupe It's the electric 911 you never knew you wanted. While we patiently await the arrival of the Mission E, Porsche's first electric production vehicle, talks of an electrified 911 continue to build. Reports suggest we could see the plug-in Porsche as early as 2022, but the potential for an electric version remains. Until then, we'll have to make do with concepts; one artist has imagined that battery-powered 911 of his dreams.Dejan Hristov has created what he calls the 911 Mission E; basically a 911 with Mission E-inspired cues. By all accounts, the concept looks beautiful.

Much of the interior, including the dashboard, is custom-made and the standard of finish is exceptional. The ST-style seats are trimmed in unique green, black and white houndstooth cloth, while the green theme also extends to the dials, carpets (black is optional) and RS-style fabric door pulls. A fully trimmed storage box takes the place of the rear seats and each car comes with a bespoke Le Mans Classic leather luggage set.

The connection between Paul Stephens and Le Mans goes deeper than a neat logo on the ducktail and a 24-hour clock on the dash. The car is an officially licensed product of Le Mans Classic, created in collaboration with event organisers Peter Auto.

Paul’s plan is that all 10 lucky PSLMCC owners will collect the keys to their cars in a special ceremony on the start/finish straight at Le Mans Classic in 2020 – the 10th anniversary of the event. We’d call that having your cake and eating it.
