1. Facelifted Porsche 911 Turbo spotted after Nurburgring crash
Porsche is currently working on the mid-life facelift for the 911. While the facelifted car won’t debut this year, previous Porsche experience tells us that when it does launch, all 911 variants will receive the tweaked styling and any other changes set to feature in the facelifted model.
2. We all speak one language — Porsche
By Pablo Deferrari
I normally don't engage in posts on Facebook, but I made an exception the other night because it seemed like a provocative one. I went something like this: "What is your attitude toward non-928 owners who think anything other than a 911 is not a true Porsche? I like being different and feel that the 911 yuppies see their rides as status symbols. Your thoughts?" Now, I'm sure you've come across this sort of question before, possibly with different numbers in the equation, comparing one camp to another. I've lost count, but something about this particular question triggered an involuntary reaction to respond. Thing is, I was once one of those guys to whom the post was making reference.
3. An old 911 and the long road back
By Dave Hogan
Do you remember the feeling you had when you bought your first Porsche? Most Porsche people sure do. Now imagine having that same feeling for 40 years. That is what happened to PCA Blue Ridge Region member Keith Martin. It was 1973 when Martin first saw his dream car: a forlorn and neglected 911 sitting in the weeds. At the time, Martin was only 19 years old and did not know how rare a 1964 Porsche 911 would become, it was just his car. The car sat for many years, disassembled but properly stored and preserved. As the 50th anniversary of the 911 approached, Martin found he had the necessary resources to begin restoration.

By Dave G. Houser
America's network of 150 National Scenic Byways lead to the heart and soul of this great country of ours — from the rugged tip of Maine to the California coast and from the colorful canyons of Utah to the Florida Keys. The truly unique and outstanding byways are designated All-American Roads. There are currently 31 of them scattered across 28 states from coast to coast. Let's take a spin along six different All-American Roads to learn how and why these iconic motorways gained their lofty status. Whatever you and your travel companions might be seeking, these All-American Roads will meet your expectations and more.

The Sports Car Guys
It was just a few days ago that we reported that Porsche was planning to build a Cayman GT4. Apparently, the car is more than rumor as it has already been caught testing.
