As it’s New Years Eve and the majority of you guys out there probably cant be bothered to read anything in the dying hours of 2013, I thought I’d post a bunch of pictures of Porsche’s. These pics are just some of the many that relate to my recent trip to Porsche’s Museum in Stuttgart, you know the one I wrote an article about yesterday? Looking back through these pictures is doing nothing to help with my crippling obsession. Enjoy!
The car above might look like a 924 in race guise, but really it was Porsche’s way of testing the oily bits for its new 944. And what better way to test a car than the grueling Le Mans 24 hours? It was a huge success, the cars new engine just kept on going and broke records for endurance reliability in the process. The achievement meant the 944 was green lighted for production with one of the most reliable engines Porsche has ever made rammed under its bonnet.
Nope don’t twist your neck. This car is actually mounted on the roof. The theory? At 321.4 kilometers per hour (200mph) the downforce created by the 956 means it could technically stick itself to the road so well it could drive upside down. An interesting way to put your point across Porsche!
Thanks for looking and I must say full credit to my girlfriend for firstly taking the pictures and secondly actually accompanying me around the Porsche Museum, I know it must have been tough!
