Piech's Hot Rod: Porsche 914/8

By Mark Zimmerman

You develop Porsche’s racing program in the late sixties, rewriting their racing history from race to race, win to win. Your team is developing faster and wilder racers, putting you in reach of the company’s first Le Mans outright victory. So what do you do when you are handed the responsibilities of developing the company’s new entry car platform? If you are Ferdinand Piëch, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, you jam the biggest racing engine in it that will fit.

Tested: Burns Stainless NHB Porsche 987 Cayman and Boxster Exhaust System

by Mike Kojima

The Porsche 987 Cayman has long been one of our favorite cars.  Built from 2006 to 2012, the 987 features a midship mounted 2.7 liter flat 6 or a 3.4 liter for the S Model.  The Cayman has always offered stellar handling, perhaps it was the best handling car of it's time.

Many Porsche snobs pan the 987 because it's mid engine makes it not a real Porsche in their eyes.  Because of this the 987 can be found for pretty reasonable prices on the used car market. This makes it a great buy in the eyes of the enthusiast who really cares about performance.

With that in mind, our friends at Burns Stainless, purveyors of some of the finest header collectors, high quality bends and fabrication supplies for most of the hardcore race industry, have set out to build what is probably the best performance exhaust on the market for the 987 Cayman.

Sneak Peek: GTSport Pirelli World Challenge Cayman S

by Khiem Dinh

“Wait… it’s not a 911!” was my first thought after getting the front quarter-view of the car. Looking at the car strictly from the front, it’s easy to confuse a Cayman with a 911. Personally, from a purely technical standpoint, I prefer the Cayman with its mid-engine layout over the 911’s rear-engine layout. 911s are very common in racing series across the world, so to see a Cayman got my interest. Reset-MD go my interest too, more on them later.

Grand-Am Road Racing at Kansas SpeedwayGrand-Am Road Racing at Kansas Speedway

by Jonathan Lawson

While Kansas City has had its share of professional racing at Kansas Speedway, the only thing missing was a professional road race series coming to town.  With the recent addition of a 2.37-mile roval (road coarse plus oval) utilizing most of the speedway banking on top of the new infield layout, that problem has been solved.

AMS Alpha Omega GTR Automotosport Chicago Mitsubishi Evo X IX XIIICompany Profile: AMS Performance 

By Wes Dumalski 

AMS Performance... No we are not talking about the knock off CDM version we are talking about the original Automotosport hailing from Chicago Illinois. Truth be told I spent some time at the AMS shop last November and began working on this article. It should have been before your eyes long ago, I should have been able to belt out a piece regaling you with their amazing records in the drag racing, power output, and time attack worlds. I should have been touting their accomplishments in the EVO and GTR worlds. SHOULD is the operative word here. The reality was that I didn't want to write THAT article. Hell every AMS article talks about their accomplishments from 8 Second Evo's and GTR's, to one of the most dominant time attack cars in US history. And while those are the things that AMS is best known for NONE of them would be possible without a key ingredient. That's right I am going to brush those things aside and focus on what makes AMS tick.... PEOPLE.

MotoIQ's Guide to the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series

MotoIQ's Guide to the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series

By Efrain Olivares 
 
While no doubt some of you have heard of the 24 Hours of Daytona, I'm guessing far fewer have heard of the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series. Which is too bad, because the cars are pretty damn cool and the racing is ultra competitive. Even in our world of attention spans that are stretched by five-lap RallyCross events, plenty of excitement can be found in sports car racing – which, at their shortest, are two hours and forty-five minutes.

Inside Look: Dino Crescentini's StopTech Porsche 911 GT3

By Steve Rockwood

Carroll Shelby once said that to make a small fortune racing, you must first spend a large one.  Of course, Mr. Shelby was also the spokesperson of some snake oil company that combines the last letter of the alphabet with the shortened version of the word maximum when Global Motorsports Group (GMG) became more than a twinkle in its founders' eyes.  Founded in 2001 by James Safronas and Fabryce Kutyba, GMG started its existence in a 1200 sq ft facility, and has since grown to fill its current 15,000 sq ft stable with high-end hardware that features charging bulls, prancing horses and a slew of crests from Stuttgart.  One of the many purebreds GMG looks after is the Pirelli World Challenge GT #4 StopTech Porsche 911 GT3, driven by Dino Crescentini, CEO  of Centric Parts and StopTech.

Sneek Peak: A Look Inside Magnus Racings ALMS Porsche GT3

Sneek Peak: A Look Inside Magnus Racing's ALMS Porsche GT3

By Mike Kojima

While we were at this year's Long Beach Grand Prix, we had an opportunity to get a close look at the Magnus Racing Porsche GT3 ALMS GTC race car.  A little known fact about Porsche is that you can buy a turn key race car from the factory, a highly competitive fully developed race car at that.  A good part of the appeal of running a Porsche is that instead of developing a car for the series, the well heeled can simply buy one without the risk of being uncompetitive.
