A while back, the Cantonese-speaking members of my local car club started a group chat to shoot the bull in our ancestral tongue.
The familiar smell of race exhaust greeted me warmly as I entered the grounds of Sebring International Raceway this past Saturday. Old race cars screamed by at incredible speeds below Fangio Terrace and I had all day to shoot.
As I write this, I’m eagerly anticipating the moment I can get my hands on Brandon Sanderson’s new work, Oathbringer. It’s the third book in The Stormlight Archive, his epic fantasy series taking place on the Cosmere (the collective universe where many of his works take place) world of Roshar. Looking to my left, I…

It was about time we went car camping in the 911 again. It’d been 2 years since our 3500 honeymoon roadtrip.
As I have done in the past four years, I spent the first weekend of November out at Portland International Raceway shooting for Audi Club Northwest’s Quattrofest event. While it was wasn’t quite a rainy as the last few years, it was a little bit nippier in the morning.
Base price of $55,000 and I ended up at $93,000. Mind you, this was WITHOUT many options such as air suspension, higher end audio and other crazy options.

My mom’s car got a nail in the tire some months back, and it has been leaking to the tune of about 3 psi a week. She’s out of town so I’m tasked with getting it fixed, along with the annual service.
This of course (although the first few were 901s until Peugeot had a hissy fit). Note how thin the pillars are and how much glass there is.
It was a good weekend. 800 miles, 2 nights camping, Highway 666. So many turns... More later. Must sleep.
I have driven a 2007 Porsche 911 in the past, far before I discovered it would be cool to make car reviews. Luck would have it that the owner who’s BMW 335is I reviewed also had access to a 2012 Porsche 991 Carrera S. He said he would ask the owner. The following question came a little while later:
They also liked maximum parsh.
This four door 928
Because why not. Now that there are 22 “different” 911s to choose from....
As stated before, not a fan of how they’re selling the 911T (and not a fan of the brand’s tactics), but can’t argue that this video captures its essence really well.
Porsche’s very own teaser. Driver looks like he want’s to eat a baby after driving the T to the top of a hill.
While the 911 Carrera T is no doubt going to steal the headlines over the next few days with its tried and true “remove the radio and charge more” recipe, here is something else I noticed while perusing Porsche’s website.
