Not sure that this Carrera would provide much cover during war time, but the pedrail wheels, also known as catepillar tracks, provide truer all terrain / off-road traction than any Cayenne ever would. With the top down and the tracks in motion, while there is no room for a rotating turret, this Carrera is sure to provide a new perspective to front-line combat.

Spotted on @TheRealMA, MotorAuthority.com is the luxury and performance leader in showcasing Porsche and hundreds of other leading performance vehicles. The rear view of this 2012 Carrera 4S Cabriolet was striking enough to make it on the return of Spotted9s.

991 spied on the test track

As Spotted by the WorldCarFans.com team and Spotted9s, these images of the 2012 Porsche 911 (991) are among the most sought after images relating to spied images of the 2012 model. While this vehicle carries on the tradition of the 911, it calls for a definite upgrade to the numbers you call out in an emergency. That’s why for this spotting…somebody call 9-9-1!

From what you’ve read and seen about the 2012 911, do you think Porsche is getting better with age or straying too far from the formula?

This 2010 GT3RS was not spotted on the streets of any U.S. city; however, it was and should be recognized as one of the most fierce machines on the road in any country at any time. So we at Spotted 9s decided to pay homage to the GT3RS with this post.

Gold Boxster

Goldfinger is begging for some love

While a mid-engine roadster does not generate the same amount of torque as a rear-engine coupe, the question remains, with the adoption of the 9 nose, could this simple machine, earn the level of love and respect that the 9 has earned for decades? Will let the Spotted 9 community decide. Vote NOW in the frst-ever Spotted 9’s poll – “Does the Boxster deserve some 9 Love?”

While the real star of this sighting is not the Mocha colored 996, we thought it prudent to include this sighting on Spotted 9s given our affinity for speed, rockets, and of course Porsche 911s.

On your mark, get ready, get set….

 Our friends at Driven, the auto blog of the hit email newsletter UrbanDaddy.com spotted this dynamic duo via the site jameslist.com.  It is a Bloodhound SSC hybrid fighter jet, Formula 1 car and rocket ship all in one. When it comes down to it, we at Spotted9s believe it really is one of the few only other reasonable things you could compare a 9 with…

Occasional departures from the essence of Spotted 9s seem to be well received if they are extraordinary, and today’s sighting is no exception. Introducing the 2012 Porsche Cayman S-Black. A limited edition production version of the Cayman was referred to by Road & Track Magazine as a more sinister version of the Cayman S line.

Ready to pounce

The Black trim has been introduced by the Porsche product team earlier on the 911 and Boxster S trims this year. Besides the black on black treatment throughout, the Cayman S Black also boasts 10 more horsepower under the hood than its non black counterparts, for a total of 330 bhp generated by a 3.4-liter 6-cylinder engine.

Even the interior materials are black, including leather seats, while the same color is used for the background of the instruments and the stitching of the board. The standard equipment includes Bi-Xenon adaptive headlights, LED daytime running lights, the Sport Design wheel, cruise control and a BOSE Sound Package Plus, which integrates audio, navigation system, speakerphone and the AUX, USB and iPod.

With only a reported 500 making their way stateside, simply getting behind the wheel will be sinful enough, imagine the repentance you’ll have to make after taking the Cayman S Black out of the garage and onto the road.

Spotted 9s is honored to share in the excitement of the 2011 New York International Auto Show by presenting the unveiling of the highly anticipated 911 GT3 R Hybrid.

Every once in a long while the history of the beloved and storied Porsche automobile has been eloquently captured in the pages of large coffee table books, posters, and calendars. On Friday March 4th Motorbooks Inc. released one of the most impressive historical perspectives and richest pictorials of Porsche in the book, Porsche: A History of Excellence. This newly Spotted book is authored by RandyLeffingwell, the best-selling Motorbooks author and extraordinary photographer, who has earned a reputation as one of the most diligent and renown Porsche authorities today. Randy dedicates the book to Porsche spokesman Bob Carlson, praising him as both a friend and “a colleague whom I deeply respect. He has supported encouraged, and aided my book efforts immeasurably for two decades,” according to Leffingwell. According to the release information we received, this book was important to publish because no other sports car has had a run like Porsche’s on the street or on the world’s racetracks. The Spotted 9s team’s experience with the book has been extremely enlightening as we go about the important work of chronicling and identifying vehicles we spot across the digital landscape, and throughout the towns, cities and countries around the world. Chapter one, as an example, delivers a joyfully biased overview of the Volkswagen roots of the Porsche origin.  While chapters two through six are dedicated to the rich Porsche automotive racing heritage.

The book is broken down in chronological order, with each chapter teaching us something new about critical milestones leading up to today’s grand Porsche legacy. Chapter seven highlights takes the reader from 1970 to 1976 as the journey of the next generation began, which included the mid-engine mounted 914 Roadster. With twenty full-length chapters of Porsche history in text and photographs, this richly illustrated volume released on March 4th, 2011,  tells a very complete story of the fabled Porsche marque. The renowned automotive writer, photographer and Porsche aficionado Leffingwell focuses his lens on each important model from the first 356 to today’s Cayman and 911.  His pictures, in-depth analyses of each car, and interviews with key personnel all serve to comprise a comprehensive, compelling and often revealing history of the world’s premier name in sports cars. The book retails for $30 and is also available on Amazon.com.

The flash sale site Gilt.com is offering up this 1974 Yellow 911 Carrera (one of only 528 manufactured that year) to its members on Friday 3/25 at Noon Eastern. There are no details on whether or not this will be a flash sale, giveaway, auction or other promotion.
