Will 944s ever be collectible?
By Jason Gonzalez
A question I get asked frequently is, "Do you think 944s are going to go up in value?" Every time — and it really is often — I still find myself pausing and scratching my head before arriving at the same conclusion. I do believe that the front-engine water cooler is the collectible Porsche car for the next generation of enthusiasts. Are they going up in value? To me, it doesn't matter much because I just love the cars. However, for someone who is looking for a special interest hobby to undertake, I think viewing a sports car with an investor's eye might be more important.

6 luxury hybrids that are more mean than green
Bold Ride
You may have heard of the Porsche 918, the Ferrari LaFerrari, or perhaps the McLaren P1. The triumvirate of gas-hybrid hypercars can claim otherworldly press acclaim and legions of fans, but there’s a good chance that you don’t own one. That being said, the high-performance hybrid isn’t out of reach to normal man — if that’s the type of thing you’re into. Don’t believe us? Here are six of the highest horsepower, performance-tuned hybrids that you’ll find on the road today.

Porsche Macan Turbo vs Cayman GTS in track battle
Autoblog Canada
"Well this is stupid." On the surface, that was Autoblog Canada’s reaction to this video, as well. Why would you compare the hottest Porsche Cayman with a crossover of any kind, even if it is the 400-horsepower Macan Turbo? We're guessing because it'd be bloody good fun, as evidenced Auto Express' latest track battle. To be fair, there is some interesting stuff here. The two do have a similar starting price, separated by less than $4,000 in the Canadian market.

Rare Porsche 917 put up for sale with a $20 million-plus price tag
Yahoo Autos
Few vehicles invite anthropomorphism — the assignment of animalistic qualities to an inanimate object — more than Porsche’s 917 race car. Low, fast and merciless to other automotive prey, the 917 helped make Porsche’s name in late-’60s and early-’70s endurance racing. Though it needed no help securing its legend, Zuffenhausen’s baby-blue-and-orange Gulf-liveried beast became a poster-plastered icon after it starred in Steve McQueen’s 1971 celluloid Porsche elegy, “Le Mans.”

A Porsche 918 Spyder caught on the track
The Sports Car Guys
The Porsche 918 Spyder is a technical achievement. The hybrid supercar is able to get amazing gas mileage and yet can lap the Nurburgring in record time. While the 918 is a very good road car, it really belongs on the track. That is the only place that one can really get to use the up to 887 horsepower.
