Great write up on the new 911

Any Given Reason

The launch of a new Porsche 911 is a special occasion. Probably the worlds benchmark sports car, each 911 is an icon of its time and is proof that constant refinement and re-engineering is the key to success. Since the 911’s introduction in September 1963 as the replacement for the 356, this new 911 is only the 6th generation from Porsche and only the third clean sheet design in almost fifty years!

Codenamed Type 991 (for added confusion), the new car is bigger, more luxurious and more comfortable than the Type 997 it replaces. But as an example of how technology progresses, the 991 is also lighter, faster and uses less fuel. It has an all new 3800cc flat 6 that loves to rev, and produces its peak power of 294kw some 900rpm higher than the old motor. That’s 24kw more and at the same rpm as the 996 GT3…

Volk Racing VR. G12 for Porsche

With Porsche moving to center lock for the ultra high performance cars, it comes as a mix blessing for tuners as this kind of system seems to have “weeded” out the bad wheels from the good (at least to some degree) but also limited choices. Used to be that any wheel company making 3pc wheels in the US could build wheels for such cars as the GT3 or the Turbo. With some great lighting and even better photography, they even made it look good.

The trick is really to build something that adds positive value to the car. That includes performance and looks. I don’t like the idea of one without the other and unless you drive your car really fast all the time and on the track and it’s visible only to a handful of car junkies for 10 weekends a year, I am quite sure that you’d like it to look good as well.

Volk Racing VR G12 brings tons of positive value. Built by Rays Engineering of Japan, the technology and research and development is not just a marketing punch line. Rays Engineering builds wheels that has graced the tarmac of the F1 circuit through the (now no-more) BMW Sauber F1 cars and endured the torture of the LeMans on the heels of the RLL BMW GT cars. Rays Engineering is also the wheel of choice for the Porsche Motorsport 911 GT3 R.

Volk Racing has not always been synonymous with Porsche or much of the European Marques. Over the past decade, Volk Racing has slowly been developing and designing wheels for the European cars. The efforts have been very successful. Within the 2012 line up, you can find multiple wheels specific to Porsche; Volk TE37 (TUV approved), Volk TE37 Super Lap, and of course the VR. G12 in both the regular lug bolt set up as well as the Center Lock variation.

Picture Perfect

This pictures perfectly captures the lines that make the 911 and perhaps I’d go as far as saying it has made “Porsche” what it is today.

RWB 964 Red and Yellow

Idlers Club RWB 964

I am a big fan of RWB cars and the livery has always been more than exciting. This one is no exception.  On the RWB Facebook, there was  a lot of reference to McDonalds. 🙂  I am not a personal fan but I admire the owners flair for a bold statement.
