Custom Paint Porsche 911

      This Porsche really stood out because of it's sleek look and fantastic color. The red is deep but has a pop to it, a really sweet custom color. Reds can be tricky because they can easily become fire engine or burgundy but here it's a great mix of tones to create a nice bright but deep red. The car is looking awesome as well. The rear really accentuates the curve while staying true to its model. It's an older model if I had to guess but still beautiful.

Racing Porsche Carrera



      It was difficult to figure out which Porsche model this one was because it's so decked out in racing stripes and decals. The Carrera logo is visible right in and after the right side of the red racing stripes. I think it looks cool, like the original car is shining through the paint. The rest of the car looks white but also blue, could be from paint but could be the sky reflecting on the white. The filter used in the photo makes the car pop off the screen and gives the tires and car super detail compared to the rest of the shot.

Porsche in the Rear View



      Sunday drives are a great way to celebrate the end of the weekend before another work week starts. This particular Sunday drive is with two twin Porsche 911 Carrera SCs in red. The way this photo was taken is great. It's a great look back on the road while showing the scenery and location. The way the yellow stripes are visible on the road going forward and the road looking back it brings a great extra pop of color against the red. The wooded area they're driving around suggests spring due to the brown grass, but could be any time. A great way to document a great drive.

Steve McQueen's 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo 3.0




      Slate grey is a great color, especially on a Porsche. This Porsche pops off the page and the color definitely helps. It's kind of muddy but clean at the same time, and definitely would be a custom color if you tried to get one now. The way the photo was taken makes the background blurry giving a sense of speed, and the angle only enhances this feeling. While I'm not 100% that this was Steven McQueen's car I'll have to take their word for it. Definitely a great car, a great photo, and a great experience.

Porsche of the Week


      This Porsche of the week is a 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster in white. The white is pretty cool and the car sort of feels 80s, at least to me. The black trim is a great classic accent and with the top down this thing is looking pretty fly. The curves in the wheels accents the rear curve, and the round headlights are always a favorite. From the rear the car looks even better, in my opinion, with the black grate and bumper accents. The bar lights in the rear add a new element to the car that is missing in the front.

Inside a Cubicle at Porsche HQ

      I've never been inside Porsche Cars North America, but given the photo above it must be a trip. I mean look at the chair mat, it's a chair mat! And it's got a great Porsche scene on it. If they're spending that kind of money on simple mats, I can't wait to see the walls, desks, and buildings and how they scream Porsche while being classy. Maybe she purchased this one herself, but I'm leaning towards the company providing things like this. It's just a quick snapshot but it's definitely a great window into the company.

Porsche Pencil Drawing



      Porsches are fun to doodle, if you can draw. This Porsche 911 is a little accentuated but overall is a pretty cool piece. It's done in pencil with great shading and color despite it being black and white. The car seems to bend a little which is an interesting feature, and the rear seems more rounded than an actual car, but overall it's a fun piece to share and definitely a cool find.
