Here's a 991.2 GTS painted in the historical Porsche shade of Birch Green (lichtgrun, Porsche color code 253) owned by RL user cherryblock with a quite special CXX option on it - the carbon door mirrors. Carbon door mirrors are offered as a "Exclusive Manufaktur" option on the configurator and is speccable on non-PTS cars. PTS cars, on the other hand, require CXX for carbon mirrors. Now, moving on to the color - Birch Green was formulated as a Safety Color for the F series 911 and still has the original color code from the 70s. Since then, 253 has been seen on many different cars and was later added to the PTS list later on. - - - Options on the GTS include (but are not limited to) Tinted rear lights (standard on the GTS), Turbo S wheels in Satin Black (also standard for GTS cars), the panoramic sunroof and the carbon mirrors. Thoughts on this spec? - - - #porsche#911#991#gts#997#996#993#964#930#911g#911e#911f#carrerars#911gts#911turbo#turbos#green#lightgreen#lichtgrun#birchgreen#253#cayman#boxster#carrera#911carrera
Wrapping up this rare air-cooled gem today. DP Motorsports ‘88 Carrera Widebody Slantnose that was treated to our Muffler Bypass, SW Chip, paint correction/interior detail and some custom powdercoating.
Something different about this Porsche 911, it’s a 1 of 1 prototype hybrid, it uses a Vonnen Performance setup which adds +150hp +150lb-ft to the crankshaft. And the Vonnen “Shadow Drive” system bypasses Porsche’s engine computers, so the car essentially drives the same as it would, but it’s much quicker, and more powerful with instant torque from zero rpm. Using a small 1kWh battery means it gets depleted but also recharges and cools quickly. You control the system via a smartphone app, which lets you shut it off if you want your car back to its “stock” form (+170lbs), or can choose from 3 modes, which you can see in the video. Street mode is for when you want a little extra squirt, feels like you’re driving a bigger engine car, Sport adds a little more, but both of these modes give you about 60-70% of the system’s power. Overboost mode, similar to Tesla’s Ludicrous mode, gives you all the electrons, full blast ahead for a few seconds (it’s *fast*). The biggest number? The price, at $75,000, is hard to justify on a modern Porsche, but definitely makes a more interesting case on air-cooled cars, that might feel sluggish by today’s standards. VSD is available first on the 991 generation (2012-2019), and then 981 Cayman/Boxster, 997 and 996 to follow, and air-cooled cars by the end of the year. If you’ve got the cash, it’d make for quite the conversation starter at the next cars n coffee, and the performance upgrade is significant years before you can get one directly from the factory.

What you see here is the 1993 Boxster (986) concept, Porsche’s first mid-engined road car (and first originally designed roadster) since the 550 Spyder. After the underwhelming sales numbers following the front-engined models; 924, 944, and 928, the Boxster almost had to serve as a ‘hail Mary’ in order for Porsche to avoid being heavily beaten out by competing manufacturers while also giving Porsche the ability to explore new ideas. Harm Lagaay (at the time Porsche’s newly appointed head of design) and Pinky Lai (studio chief) got to work on creating a sporty, mid-engined convertible to debut at the 1993 Detroit Auto Show, ultimately resulting in what you see here. Huge thank you to @johnnygriffiths for the images! #porsche#boxster#porscheboxster
