Top 4 Things I Learned at Porsche Camp4 Winter Performance Driving School
Feb 10, 2017 - 3:41 PM - by AutoGuide.com

I’ve never been a 'winter person.'

I’ve lived in Canada my whole life, and not once have I woken up in the winter to a frigid, dark and dreary day feeling like I could conquer the world. I thought that taking up a winter sport like snowboarding or skiing would help fight my winter blues. Nope. I just ended up getting injured and hating winter even more.

Porsche seems to have a cure for people like me who love driving, hate winter, and might be tired of skiing injuries: Porsche Camp4 is an immersive winter performance driving course/vacation that teaches people how to drive when grip is rarer than a January heat wave. The program not only teaches how to be safer drivers in the snow, but also how to properly get sideways in it. It takes a driver’s worst winter enemies—snow and ice—and turns them into their best friends.

Porsche Opens New ‘Experience Center’ in Los Angeles
Nov 15, 2016 - 10:22 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Love Porsches? Well, plan on booking a trip to Los Angeles as soon as possible.

The legendary German sports car maker is opening a brand new Experience Center in the heart of this California megalopolis. Equal parts racetrack, luxury retailer and playground, the facility will call Porsche faithful to worship like church bells on Sunday; it’s also certain to win legions of new converts to the religion of Zuffenhausenism.

Spread across 53 acres of land in the city of Carson, this venue took the company about two and a half years to construct at a cost of some $60-million. It includes a 50,000 square-foot building, more than four miles of test track and even a fine-dining restaurant.

Its central location ensures easy access to Los Angeles International Airport, downtown L.A. and practically every other corner of Southern California, a boon in this town scorned for its unbearable traffic.

L.A. is home to the second Porsche Experience Center in America, which is following closely behind the first one that opened in Atlanta early last year. The United States is the only country with two of these facilities, catering to strong Porsche demand in the land of liberty. Underscoring this fact, California accounts for 23 percent of all the vehicles Porsche sells in the U.S.

The first Experience Center was opened in Leipzig, Germany, 16 years ago, though a handful of others are found global locations including Silverstone, United Kingdom; Le Mans, France; and Shanghai, China.

It’s September which means we’re back in Europe to take in the hottest new reveals and concept cars. In Paris you can expect cars from your favourite luxury automakers like the new BMW 5 series sedan and X2 crossover, or the new Mercedes GLC43 Coupe or AMG GT Roadster. Even Land Rover is getting in on the show with a new Discovery. There are also rumors of a new VW EV to hit the show, in order to distract people from that whole TDI scandal.

You can also expect many high end cars and exotics to make a splash, with Ferrari looking to make a big deal about its 70th anniversary. Keep your eyes peeled right here for all the details.

2017 Porsche 718 Cayman and Cayman S Review
Sep 22, 2016 - 2:18 PM - by AutoGuide.com
718Forum.com - The Largest 2017+ Porsche 718 Forum And Community!

Porsche’s 919 Hybrid race car just scored a major victory in the World Endurance Championship over the weekend at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

You don’t have to like or even understand motorsports to appreciate that it takes a lot of automotive ingenuity to win a gruelling six-hour endurance race in the harsh Texas heat. The 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman and Cayman S are direct beneficiaries of a lot of the research and development that goes into a winning race car like the 919. These Porsches are bred from race cars, a pedigree that becomes obvious when you drive them.

This 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman boasts the biggest increase in performance a Cayman has ever seen from generation to generation, but isn’t any less friendly or usable. Porsche engineers have made a ridiculous amount of enhancements and they will bore you to death with all the minutiae, but all you need to know is that it results in a dramatically better car. They looked at every single detail and didn’t leave anything out.

Starting with the new engine, the 718 family is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter flat four-cylinder engine with 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. S models get an upgraded 2.5-liter unit that boasts 350 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque. Interestingly, the smaller engine gets more boost, as the bigger one doesn’t need it because of the increased displacement, and Porsche needs to save something for the upcoming 718 Cayman GTS.

Porsche doesn’t like to use the word 'downsizing,' preferring the term 'right-sizing' for this engine choice because downsizing might lead people to believe that performance has decreased, when, in fact, the opposite is true.

With a more linear torque curve than the flat-sixes they replace (meaning that there’s usable power available whenever you want it), the new free-revving four-cylinder engines boast far more performance and are much more efficient. Power doesn’t drop off as sharply and there’s still plenty of power available even in the higher rpm range. Turbo lag is barely evident, and the smart seven-speed PDK reacts fast enough to get you up to speed faster than you’d ever need, even without using the
