    Porsche faithful, rejoice. The 2021 911 GT3 will very likely stick with a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-6. Porsche said in a Tuesday release about prices for the new 911 Speedster that the car's engine is, in fact, a next-generation flat-6. In the 2019 911 Speedster, the 4.0-liter flat-6 makes 502 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque. Those are slightly higher numbers than the current 2019 911 GT3, which uses the previous-generation flat-6 and makes 500 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. If we're reading Porsche's release correctly, "next generation" means the next GT3 will get the same...

  • Front-engined Hemi-powered Porsche 911 Photo: Danton Arts Kustoms

    File this one under modifications we'd never even imagine. French tuning company Danton Arts Kustoms revealed on Instagram it has a Hemi V-8-powered Porsche 911 in the works. If that doesn't sound mad enough, there's a catch. The V-8 isn't going in the rear where the flat-6 engine once sat. Instead, it's up front. What possessed the minds at Danton Arts Kustoms to dream up this creation is far beyond our comprehension. Purists beware, the photos and renderings will not please you. Others, though, may find the Hemi-powered 911 delightful. Since the rear of the car won't house an engine, the...

    Porsche Half11 is sure to shock classic car purists

    The Porsche 911 is a dream car for many enthusiasts. Yet, a lot has been done with vintage 911s over the past decade that moves beyond what came from the factory, despite how purists may feel.

  • 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S, Valencia, Spain, January 2019
    What to expect in a Porsche 911 hybrid

    The idea of a hybrid seems anathema to the spirit of the Porsche 911 at first blush. A hybrid aimed at fuel economy betrays the 911’s sports car mission, and adding motors and batteries to increase power would increase weight, which is a sports car’s natural enemy. Then again, one of...
