You could spend the weekend of June 18th mowing your lawn, lazily watching the Golf Channel on the couch, or avoiding talking to your spouse. Or you could come to New York and party with us for 24 hours straight during the greatest race in the entire world—the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Ever since Porsche launched the Boxster, people were awaiting the time it would surpass the lady of the house, the 911. Or at least the road testers were. It almost happened a few times, but not quite. Then last Wednesday I drove a few Porsches, so now it’s my turn to chime in on this.
This is one of them, so far. I hate desk work, but at least the view is ok sometimes. The 951 is a really clean one, in for the belts, oil leak repairs, and a steering rack, and the 964 Turbo has 40,000 miles and is in for a valve adjustment. Pretty cool. I miss working on cars full time on days like this.
Finally shot an automotive video last week, here is the result...
Matt Hummel’s love for vintage automobiles has led him to many interesting places, but no car has captured his imagination quite like his 1956 Porsche 356.
Saw this while I was on a walk around the neighborhood this evening. What year, model is it?
Puff approves. (Best packaging ever? Best packaging ever.)

So I used to work at a parts store here in NH that used to be a Robbins that was in a building that used to be a Studebaker dealership. Well, this poster was wedged between the parts shelves and a support column that held up a newer mezzanine.
About a week ago, I got an unexpected early morning message from a man I’d spoken to, but never met in person.
Almost everyone I talk to says it as one syllable, but sometimes I hear it pronounced like “Porsché” with two syllables.
Old or new, don’t worry: Porsche has got you covered. They’ve just released new tire recommendations for everything all the way back to the 356 B!
I didn’t know you could still get Porsche 968s for as little as this. You see 944s all the time but I can’t remember the last time I saw a 968.
It finally happened this Saturday. I’ve been running on adrenaline all weekend. For an idea of how the this weekend went.
