2011 Porsche 911 Speedster first drive
Edmunds Inside Line    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The story of the 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster goes back well over a half century, although the legend took only a matter of months to establish. So eager is Porsche to invoke the spirit of the original that the company has guaranteed that just 356 examples will be built. Philosophically, however, this fourth-generation Speedster is worlds apart from the original 1954 version. More

Porsche is likely to win appeal in 2009 meeting dispute, German judge says
Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Porsche SE, the maker of the 911 sports car, is likely to win an appeals case over a shareholder meeting during its failed bid to take over Volkswagen AG, a German judge said in a preliminary assessment of the case. Minority investors may not win their bid to invalidate shareholder votes over directors' approval of an "unconscionably" high salary for chief executive officer Wendelin Wiedeking and other officials, Presiding Judge Eberhard Stilz said at a hearing at the Stuttgart Higher Regional Court. The failed bid led to Wiedeking's ouster in 2009, regulatory probes, and lawsuits in U.S. and Germany. More

Jalopnik    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Mythbusters crew and Popular Mechanics will test later this month the old claim that the Porsche 928 could go faster if driven backwards.

Porsche 928 enthusiasts have long questioned whether its design caused enough aerodynamic problems to affect the performance relative to other sports cars. Find out the answer when the episode airs on Nov. 17. More

Hype concerning a very limited edition collector's watch by TAG Heuer for the Porsche Club of America.
PCA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
Just very short time ago TAG Heuer and the Porsche Club of America (PCA) celebrated the PCA's 55th anniversary by manufacturing a limited edition watch. As the edition was limited to only 55 pieces worldwide, watch collectors and Porsche fans worldwide have been fascinated by this ultra-rare limited TAG Heuer edition. The overwhelming demand surprised the PCA board.

"We knew that this would be a true collector's timepiece due to its rarity, but we were totally overwhelmed by the hype," said executive director of the Porsche Club of America Vu T.H. Nguyen and Georg Bartkowiak, the prestigious project's innovators. "We are sorry that so many interested PCA members and collectors did not get a watch as the limited run of 55 pieces is already sold out and has been shipped to 55 lucky new owners."

The official retail price at launch was $5,500, though certainly the value of the exclusive edition will explode in the collector's market. The PCA board has one surprise left, however: it is going to raffle off the most prestigious watch of the edition -- the watch numbered 01/55. More info to come.
