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.

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. The clamoring for this gem is reaching a fever pitch, which is why we included the information here for the Spotted9s family to not miss out.

Good Luck! As the team here at Spotted9s will certainly be after this vintage hottie as well.

Spotted 9s is welcoming to the 911 line, the 2011 Speedster. We think naming a Porsche a Speedster is slightly redundant not only because the name Porsche is synonymous with ‘speed’, but also because the earliest Porsche 356 was also named the Speedster…oh well.

On top of the world in the 2011 911 Speedster

Combining, the classic features of the well-known Speedster series with improved performance over the current 911 generation: The 3.8-liter flat six engine delivers 408 horsepower (hp), 23 hp more in comparison with the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, yet is EPA rated the same at 19 mpg city / 27 mpg highway. The 2011 Porsche Speedster reaches 0-60 MPH in 4.2 seconds with Sport Chrono Plus and has a top-track speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) – all courtesy of Porsche Intelligent Performance.

Paying homage to the first Porsche model to bear the Speedster name – the 356 Speedster – the new Porsche 911 Speedster  made its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Significantly different from other members of the 911 family, this two-seat roadster features a 2.36″ lower, more raked windscreen and the characteristic speedster double-bubble hardcover for the manual soft top. Helping to define the striking profile of the new 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster, the 1.73″  wide-body from the AWD 911 models makes the rear-wheel-drive only Speedster stand out even more. The production run of this special car will be limited to 356 units worldwide, with approximately 100 heading to the U.S., will we spot you in one of these limited edition blue bombshells?

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?

Happy Halloween From the crew here at Spotted9s!

Despite the 2010 Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays being over, the team has continued to turn in supercharged sightings of the speeding pumpkins, better known as the Orgasmic Orange colored 911s.  Take your pick by trim or era. Which ever way you choose to go fast in Orange, the Porsche force will always be with you.

Red-diculously Rambunctious 911 GT

Spotted on a mid-western pre-driven exotic cars lot, this 2007 Guards Red Porsche 911 GT gives off a ridiculous and rambunctious vibe as it poses on the lot for our spotted 9s’ camera. It was saying buy me…buy me, but alas, the best we could do was feature it among this week’s Spotted 9s sightings.

Porsche 911 Mirage GT

Black Mirage Spy Photo

From our friends at TheChive.com comes this test track spy photo of the Porsche GT Mirage. As we rubbed our eyes and waited for the ‘kick’ to determine whether or not we were experiencing an Inception , we quickly realized that this spotting of the Porsche Mirage GT was indeed real and we had to share it with you, the Spotted 9’s readers.  Sorry, but you’ll have to determine on your own how to incorporate this concept machine from Porsche into your dreams – or into your own reality. See more images of this magnificent machine at TheChive.com. Experience it now in the video below.
