1. Porsche Carrera GT worth $440,000 left neglected in Canadian parking garage
What was once a gleaming, $440,000 masterpiece is now covered in dust — and has been for over a year. It sits in a Canadian parking garage, neglected and unloved. The battery is dead, and the registration has expired. The passenger's window reads "Clean Me," as bemused passersby wonder why on earth this rare supercar is being left to die. You might assume that the owner of this Porsche Carrera GT had no choice but to leave the car behind.
2. Even a Ferrari can't replace a Porsche
Torque Affair via Oppositelock
Drive a 911 and you will mostly likely understand what the fuss is about. Torque Affair did. And if you happen to own one or have driven one, then what you're about to read will resonate with you.
3. Mourning a dying friend: The manual transmission
By Jeff Coe
When I purchased my first Porsche, it had a five-speed manual, of course. A true sports car combined with a manual introduced me to another level of enjoyment. All four of my 968s have also been six-speed manuals. In my eyes, a proper sports car should have nothing else. But times have changed, and here we are in 2014. Thanks to technology, the automatic has caught up and surpassed the many advantages of the manual. And that brings me to the reality that I'm facing. My next new car could likely be an automatic, whether I want it or not.
