In conjunction with Tuesday's Outlaw Porsche video, we wanted to share more information about the wonderful bathtub Porsches. So we've created a Petrolicious infographic that is chock full of interesting tidbits about the iconic car. For instance, did you know that the 500th Porsche was built in the fourth year of production?

Modern cars with airbags, traction control, anti-lock brakes, sensible weight distribution, seatbelts and crumple zones can still be dangerous. Remove one or all of those components, add power to the equation, and you get a car that could kill you at any moment...

The Original Rush of a Porsche

The Original Rush of a Porsche

The 911 was in amazing shape, featuring only 37,000 original miles, and included everything that it did when it was first sold new, including the window sticker and even a packet of disposable gloves intended for roadside emergencies. Additionally, it’s completely stock and has never been altered or modified. Gary simply enjoys the rush of driving a Porsche convertible.

I ran into this beautiful example at an auto show outside Stockholm in 2008. The owner was an old man who had been driving and restoring 356s for decades, a true Porsche connoisseur. Close to mint condition, narrow original body and the sexy black optional sports seats. Delivered new in Sweden, known owner history–and only 45,000 miles on the meter, bingo!...

Earlier this month, we featured Mr. Antoine Gaslais's work and received such as great response that we reached out to find out more about this Parisian-based artist and classic car enthusiast. He obviously keeps very busy, but he says that his most important current job is working on his car, "because it is my favorite subject. In particular posters for my club or my travels with my Porsche."

Take, for instance, Mr. Steve Hogue's shop in Torrance, California. Housed in a nondescript industrial area of the city and with space for only a dozen cars, the garage appears at first glance to be one of the many small-scale body shops that populate the local streets. Wander inside, however, and you’ll find yourself standing next to an original Cobra...

Unbelievably, walking into the cavernous garage revealed seven (!) 959s, Canepa's personal McLaren P1, Outlaw 356s, a Maserati Birdcage, and a Porsche 917. The facilities are extensive and include countless jigs for full racecar rebuilds. What was the best part? The car wall. Oh, you don't have a car wall?

What is the Greatest Classic All-Wheel Drive Car Ever?

Four-wheel drive has been around for quite a long time. So long in fact that by 1900, several companies were making vehicles with some variety of 4WD. And in that very year a certain Dr. Ferdinand Porsche built his first system. But as cars developed, four-wheel drive saw limited use only in vehicles that were designed to operate off-road for very specific purposes...

Petrolisti Unite! Time to Rewrite a Foolish Law

For those of you who aren’t familiar, the United States has an almost blanket ban on importing all vehicles younger than twenty-five years old. Land of the free, my foot! With very few exceptions, you can’t just import a car from another part of the world until it has turned twenty-five years old. And it's about protectionism. But not about protecting occupants or even the environment.

Why the Porsche 914 2.0 is Collectable

By whatever fractious means it came to exist, the Porsche 914 represented something very special when it graced American showrooms in 1969. The Detroit horsepower wars were going great guns when this unusual and beautiful Targa-roofed, mid-engined sports car arrived from Germany. It was like a tiny Ferrari or Lamborghini, approximately the kind of thing Lotus had pursued with the Europa, exotic and a bit delicate-looking.

Taking off again was agonizingly slow as the 3.3-liter engine struggled to respond to my planted right foot, that was until the turbo spooled up and the forced induction shoved me squarely into the leather sport seat, by which time the car was barreling into a corner, boost and all...
