In 1976, Porsche introduced their first transaxle powertrain with the type 924 and embarked into new = and some might say murky - waters.

This Is What Happens When You Cross a Porsche 928 With An El Camino
I die a little inside when I see Porsches like this. I'm sure the owner had the best of intentions and it's possible that the conversion was even done well. It's just that no matter how good of a job was done, a Porsche 928 and a Chevy Elcamino should have never been mated. Maybe it would be okay for them to pass on the street. But, to swap parts …Continue to the full article

Is a Porsche a Recession Proof Investment?
The answer depends on the Porsche in question and who you ask. A few months ago I wrote an article about a 928 GTS that sold for the record price of $92,500.

How a Porsche 928 Saved a Life and Influenced a Career
I purchased my last Porsche from Michael Willhoit a little over two years ago (that's a picture of it below). Since that time Michael and I have become friendly and he even agreed to sponsor our site (hence his advertisement to the right over there).
