The GT3 was Porsche’s first crack at a spicy, RS-style version of the 996. We drive both Mark 1 and Mark 2 versions – and, what-d’ya-know, they’re both Speed Yellow! How cool is that for two hot numbers?

So sleek, so purposeful; no other Porsche has quite the same shark...

In a bid to improve trackday driving standards, Johan Dirickx has prepared a trio of 944s - and issued the Sideways Challenge! We take an oblique view of the project…

How they miss one another I will never know! Two drift kings pirouetting their 944s in unison for the b...

Its owner murdered, this 2.7 RS languished in a Trinidad shed – till Autofarm’s Josh Sadler rescued it. Now the dilemma is whether to restore it, or merely recommission it.

Barricaded in its late owner’s Caribbean shed by his daughters to hide it from modern-day pirates...

Pounding the Nordschleife big dipper for 24 hours really is the greatest test of man and machine. We follow Falken Tyres’ 991 GT3-R’s steady rise up the running order, and greet the dawn with the crepuscular crazies in the forest.

It’s a seductive recipe. Take 180 assor...

The Giro di Sicilia is Sicily’s best-known motoring event after the Targa Florio. Johnny Tipler reports on the 2016 edition of the regularity rally.

What better way of seeing Sicily than a leisurely tour of the island in a classic car? Well, how about a little competiti...

I’m driving out of Las Vegas in a white-hot Elise S2 in blistering 110° sunshine, and the radio’s playing homegrown band The Killers’When You Were Young–“we’re burning down that highway skyline…!” Nothing wrong with a good cliché, and that’s what the Mohave mecca is ab...

With 65 units built, the Carrera Six – otherwise known as the 906 - was Porsche’s last street-legal racing car. On events like Tour de France Auto and Targa Florio it doubled as a road car too, so I put one to the test on the Hampshire downs.

Hollywood ruled the movies in the 1950s, but European sports cars were coolest - and none more so than Lotus. Emerging as the racer to have, it caught the eye of the era’s hippest star: James Dean. I tracked down his Mark X Lotus - and uncovered a few controversies in...

Much of Gerhard Berger’s competition career was founded on BMW racing cars and engines, but now he’s gone back to his roots, enjoying ride-outs on BMW motorcycles. I chatted with him at the Goodwood Revival.


A handful of F1 drivers started out on two wheels - John Surt...

Founded in the arena where Adolf Hitler once saluted his marching Youth brigade, the Norisring is a fast street circuit with a substantial history of Porsche successes. In 2014 I drove a 991 around its hallowed hairpins.
