Kills Bugs Fast

Bugs get on your paint, glass, chrome, rubber, and whatever else faces the front of the car, depositing their dead, rotting carcasses and releasing all kinds of hellish chemicals. Here is a quick, easy, cheap solution.

We Like To Drive…

 I mean, I like to drive, and that means that I control it all…and I want everyone else to be in control of their vehicles, too.  While I don’t ever see myself consciously getting into an autonomous vehicle, the thought that there will be fleets of these things out there with me is a little troubling.

Is There Already a NEW 944 Out There?

On April Fool’s Day, we posted a fake announcement that Porsche was bringing back the 944, and the response to that joke was off the scale.  Stories are still circulating online with people reading that story, referred to us through online forums and social media – even today.  It was by far our most popular story.  Conclusion?  People want a new 944.
Well, it may already be out there.

Dieselgate, Bosch, and the Series 1 Porsche 944

Nearly every early 944 has “The 944 Shudder.” When lifting off the throttle from any position, the revs drop below idle, and then the engine recovers.

So what’s that got to do with the surprising, unsettling, completely unprecedented mass deception event that is dieselgate? More than you might think.

The Answer is Always 944

“But I want to do all of it.”
This is where the 944 shines. This is why the 944 is the perfect enthusiast’s car.
On Saturday you can go to the PCA autocross, and embarrass a Boxster or two. Sunday morning, you can go to Cars and Coffee, and park your classic Porsche up front.
On Monday, you can drive your 944 to and from work, read some forums when you get home, and order that coil-over kit you’ve been looking at. Next weekend you’ll embarrass three Boxsters.
When – especially when – you want to do all of it, the 944 has you covered.
