Why Porsche’s GT Boss Doesn’t Care About Nurburgring Lap Times
Apr 20, 2017 - 9:00 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Trying to one-up each other must be a favorite past time of automakers, especially when it comes to Nurburgring lap times.

Although it was once considered the holy grail of performance specs, Porsche seems to be stepping back from setting record Nurburgring lap times for one simple reason: it’s just not that fun.

During an interview with AutoGuide.com after the North American debut of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3, which is now available with a manual transmission option, Porsche GT boss <span class="s1">Andreas Preuninger shed some light on why they brought back the manual.

'There are a lot of people who aren’t looking at the stopwatch when they’re on the track and they just want the interaction and they want a driver’s car,' he said at the New York Auto Show, saying that making the GT3 more fun was the main goal. 'This is the reason why we left the route of being the quickest on the Nurburgring and only thinking about lap times. I don’t care that the competition is a little bit faster around the ‘Ring.'

Next Porsche GT Model Could Go Hybrid, Electric or ‘Whatever’

Seeing as Porsche 911 design has been essentially the same for decades, the German automaker is certainly stubborn about some things.

It seems that powertrains, however, is something Porsche can actually be flexible with.

Speaking with AutoGuide.com during the North American debut of the new 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 at the New York Auto Show, Andreas Preuninger, head of the Porsche GT department, said that as long as the German brand is better than its competitors, it doesn’t matter what’s powering its cars.

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.
