Porsche Delays Sub-Boxster Model

Little was known about the sub-Boxster model Porsche was planning to produce. Some, like myself, saw it as a successor to Porsche’s 550 Spyder and 356. Others pointed to the parts sharing between Porsche, VW, and Audi, and saw the car as a successor to the dreadful 914. We may never know how good it may or may not have been however, since reports out of Germany say that Porsche is stalling its development.

Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller sat down with German business magazine Wirtschaftswoche to discuss the automaker’s future. When pressed about the 550 successor he stated, “Possibly we need to wait until the next generation of customers before the idea of a small roadster will work for Porsche,” and that it would “dilute the brand image.” This reason is complete nonsense.

ACB: Rauh Welt

RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF : Shinji’s RWB 964 from Luke Huxham on Vimeo.

Last time, ACB featured the new 911, so it is only natural to bring you a video featuring an old one. For those unfamiliar with Rauh Welt, they are a Japanese tuning company that turns ordinary 911s into something that crawled out Tim Burton’s nightmares. Bear in mind, these cars aren’t trailer queens either. Many see daily driving duty and heavy track use. Enjoy.

ACB: New 911 Ad

Yes this ad commits every cliche in the car advertisement handbook, but still, it features the new 911 up close and personal. If you can ignore the dramatic smoke, ariel shots, terrible new age music, and nary a whisper of why you should like the new 911, the ad is enjoyable. but seriously ad men, step up your game. Nothing about bad rock show special effects makes me want to buy a car.
