@Jack if you're lookin for motorcycles, you got the wrong app :P no offense
Jack Howard Feb 27, 2013
I wish there was an app that had more motorcycle and dirt bike stuff
Patrick Schalk Feb 27, 2013
Shoot I wish there were more offroad articles on here. There's hardly ever any.
Jordan Nishida Feb 26, 2013
Porsche is a legend. It's more reliable and cheaper than a Ferrari.
Andrew McNeal Feb 26, 2013
It's also much easier to afford a Porsche than a Ferrari.
LarryandStephanie Espana Feb 26, 2013
@ nick...yes. It's kinda amazing how they are sort of giving the biggest motorsports Marques from Italy, US, Germany, and possibly Japan....???maybe England? Who knows?
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
I love Porsche. I don't know why they go under appreciated on Carbuzz. They are like Ferraris that you can drive on the road and not break your spine. Plus they are more practical and affordable.
Mohamed Alhasan Feb 26, 2013
But add more Russian dash cam videos cause there hilarious
Oscar Galvan Feb 26, 2013
No I think both is good, not one over the other.
Drew Humphrey Feb 26, 2013
Me too. I wish that carbuzz would focus more on competitive Motorsport and less on tuner creations
Oscar Galvan Feb 26, 2013
I am liking these segments
Josh C. Williams Feb 27, 2013
Iv'e heard some creepy stories about Jimmy Dean's 550 after the accident.
Dylan Gomes Feb 27, 2013
550 <3
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
Sweet!
Description: The first proper Porsche race car was the 550. Small-capacity Porsche cars had grabbed some class wins in races prior to this, but the 550 was first to really establish the Porsche name in internation...

Arguable. Remember that Enzo only sold street cars to fund the Scuderia Ferrari. To add, SF had been prepping cars for Alfa decades before Ferrari street cars.
LarryandStephanie Espana Feb 26, 2013
Yes in number of wins and competition but not of years...Ferrari banner was in racing officially before Porsche.
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
They should bring this back.
Description: But it wasn't just prototypes which had success in rallying, as production versions of the 911 would win the Monte Carlo Rally in 1968, '69 and '70. When the turbocharged 930 variant of the 911 was in...

So cool
Dylan Gomes Feb 27, 2013
one things for sure, it's not street legal and it won't pass emission tests XD
Jack Howard Feb 27, 2013
Why would it scare the shit out of them? I don't understand why people would be frightened or exclaim WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT
Justin Routh Feb 27, 2013
Im pretty sure everybody would know a fucking porsche if they saw it on the street
Jake Dula Feb 26, 2013
Ignore Jack, he doesn't know what he's talking about.
Jackson Michael Feb 26, 2013
How could people be confused its so Porschey
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
Take off the livery and I'll take it.
Description: Its first win at Le Mans came in 1970, just after the reign of the Ford GT40. The car which took the win was the 917, one which has since become almost as big a legend as Ford’s Le Mans car. But it wa...

Dylan Gomes Feb 27, 2013
i would say that the 917 is more of a legend than the GT40 considering the drivers who drove them
Jean-Paul Grenade Feb 27, 2013
Porsche will compete in LMP1 next year, so Audi's dominance may not continue.
LarryandStephanie Espana Feb 26, 2013
Now that's legendary stuff! Something tells me that Audi will get there unless Porsche comes back to racing LeMans and competes against it. Who knows? Maybe Ford can come back also! Nah...that's far fetched. Lol. 917 is one of the legendary race cars
Description: Porsche participated in Formula 1 as its own team only briefly in the late Fifties and early Sixties. But through a partnership with TAG, it would become a reasonably successful engine supplier. As a ...

i found it a little ironic as Senna and Prost were arch rivals and yet they became teammates eventually lol
Ken Lee King Siang Feb 27, 2013
It's Prost.
Lou Guerrero Feb 26, 2013
Lauda and Probst. Two legends although people may remember Alain Probst as Senna's arch nemesis haha
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
Love the 959
Dylan Gomes Feb 27, 2013
917 <3 just one of the great reasons i love Porsche
Dylan Bruder Feb 26, 2013
Beautiful
Jordan Nishida Feb 26, 2013
Love it. Saw that car at the Porsche Motorsport reunion in 2011 at laguna Seca raceway
August Burrichter Feb 26, 2013
Pulls up next to you? Shit, this thing will blow right by you, and it would be awesome.
LarryandStephanie Espana Feb 26, 2013
@ Tara, I know. It still is crazy if you are on a track and this thing pulls up next to you!!!!
David Gray Feb 26, 2013
Doesn't age well? It's almost 45 years old! The carrera is only 10 years old if that. How can you compare the 2?
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
How much would one of these cost?
Mohamed Alhasan Feb 26, 2013
I agree with janko
Janko Danis Feb 26, 2013
This car doesnt age like the carrera gt
Tara Fitria Feb 26, 2013
Imagine first seeing this in 1970, woulda been crazy.
Dylan Bruder Feb 26, 2013
I like these obscure little cars
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
These are so sexy!
Description: But as significant as Porsche’s contributions to motorsport have been as a factory team, it is currently most visible as a supplier to privateer and amateur racing teams. This has tended to mean any o...

i just cant wait for the 2014 Le Mans race next year!
Dennis Choong Feb 27, 2013
Cup car isn't that expensive... very similar mechanically to the road going version GT3 except for the sequential gearbox. RSR will cost a bomb though
Lou Guerrero Feb 26, 2013
Absolutely. 996 or 997 GT3 or whatever I can afford when I'm ready. Garage kept, trailered, track only. It's still a while away,
Ryan Lopez Feb 26, 2013
Wait what lou r u serious
Lou Guerrero Feb 26, 2013
With an assload of hard work maybe one day I'll be in my own GT3 Cup car on a Sunday.
Dylan Gomes Feb 27, 2013
super car on the street, the track, AND offroad
Jake Dula Feb 26, 2013
I agree it'd be cool to see Porsche in rallying again, but the prospect is so far fetched its depressing to think about. Porsche would pretty much have to start with a new car to even think about qualifying.
Jordan Nishida Feb 26, 2013
959 legend
Lou Guerrero Feb 26, 2013
Get some!
LarryandStephanie Espana Feb 26, 2013
Porsche should go back into rallying. Like the good old days!
Oleg Odessit Feb 26, 2013
I grew up on this)))), best ever
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
They need to bring this back as one of the fastest cars in the world.
Jackson Michael Feb 26, 2013
I definitely agree
Jack Dransfield Feb 26, 2013
Best Porsche to date : )
Jordan Nishida Feb 26, 2013
One of the best racing teams
LarryandStephanie Espana Feb 26, 2013
This car decimated the competition. Oh Porsche...the cars you create when you try!
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
Holy shit!
Lucas Raggio Feb 26, 2013
What an air intake
Drew Humphrey Feb 26, 2013
Martini Racing! How legendary
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
This should be brought back also.
Janko Danis Feb 26, 2013
Sexyy
Drew Humphrey Feb 26, 2013
Downforce
Dennis Choong Feb 26, 2013
Holy shit... too much downforce at the rear? Lol
Noah Roberts Feb 26, 2013
Poppa wheelie!
Adam Beiersdorfer Feb 26, 2013
When this front end comes back down... That moose better be off this road and gone or someone's about to get a beating!
