  • A Cold Start but a Smooth Idle

    I think I’ve been to more Porsche meets and events over the last few years than any other kind; so much so that it now feels like very familiar territory. Before that I didn’t care for the brand much more than I do, really, any other sports car brand. Granted, I’m still learning about the cars, the company and their history so there are always new things to see, but…

  • Early Morning Porsche

    Early mornings are great, especially for us car people: it’s quiet, relaxed, there’s seldom another soul on the road. And because most would rather be tucked tightly in bed at 6:30am on Sunday, it also means only the most dedicated are out to enjoy it. It hasn’t been that long since my last Porsche foray, but once again I headed out at sunrise with the expectation that it would be…

  • Dem Trinker kommt der Durst

    I like to believe I’m on the minimalist side of life moreso than the opposite. Social media has been a great tool for the last decade or so, but I’m hearing of more people who have ditched them all and haven’t looked back. While I’ve thought about doing the same, there is one thing preventing me from going cold turkey: social media continues to allow me to discover good information…

  • Let’s #SportscarTogether

    If you have even only one eye on the international Porsche scene, it shouldn’t be news to you that a few short weeks ago Luftgekühlt 6 was held at the Universal Studios backlot in California. A wealth of air-cooled Porsches have bombarded my social media feed over the past few weeks since and, as I didn’t have the luxury of attending, I’ve been at a loss. Not all was lost…

  • TCR: A New Horizon

    I don’t think I can remember the last time a new motor racing category has stirred up so much commotion in the industry or the public eye before the cars had even hit the track for a race. But for many, myself included, there was a new glimmer in the eye as the new TCR Australia Series got under way for Round 1 at the Shannons Nationals at Sydney Motorsport…

  • Porsche Rennsport Reunion VI

    I said it last time: I’m slowly becoming a Porsche guy. What better way to immerse oneself in the wide world of Porsche than in the self-proclaimed largest gathering of Porsches in the world: Rennsport Reunion VI. Set at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca for the 6th installment of the triennial event, it was my first stop in a month-long motorsports sampling trip across the USA. The most prominent attendee –…

  • PCNSW Concours d’Elegance 2018

    I’m slowly becoming a Porsche guy. I don’t even know why. Maybe it’s their motorsport heritage. Maybe it’s the timeless design. Maybe it’s the sound of those aircooled boxer engines. Whatever it is, I’ve been drawn more and more to the brand over the past few years. So much so that when I saw the details of the Porsche Club of NSW’s annual concours d’elegance pop up on my social…
