Americas Rallycross Cooked In The Texas Heat During Its First Race In Austin Americas Rallycross Cooked In The Texas Heat During Its First Race In Austin

Since Red Bull Global Rallycross went down in a smoldering heap, Americans have been deprived from experiencing top class racing on a mixture of dirt and tarmac. Fortunately with the announcement of Americas Rallycross and the FIA’s World Rallycross making their way to Circuit of The Americas in Austin this year, fans…

A 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Is Also A Surprisingly Great Road Trip Car A 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Is Also A Surprisingly Great Road Trip Car

I’m no stranger to road trips, and have a habit of doing them in fun cars. Most of the time they go as planned; other times they go very badly. But a trip from London to Le Mans and back in a 2018 Porsche 911 GT3, one of the most hardcore and extreme Porsches you can buy, was thankfully be one of the smoother ones—and…

How Porsche Dominated Le Mans How Porsche Dominated Le Mans

It comes as no surprise that more attention was paid to Toyota’s overall win at the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans, with its triumph in the top class this year coming after two heartbreaking losses to Porsche in 2016 and 2017. Toyota also added Formula One’s two-time world champion Fernando Alonso to their driver lineup,…

I Shot Le Mans And Completed My Photography Bucket List. Now What? I Shot Le Mans And Completed My Photography Bucket List. Now What?

When I flew to France to shoot the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans, it was more than just a work assignment; it was a life goal. Less than two years ago, I decided to quit a much more lucrative career to pursue my passion, rather than just sporadically doing photography as a paying hobby. It was a big risk, but now I’ve…

Shooting The 24 Hours Of Le Mans Is As Grueling And Awesome As The Race Itself Shooting The 24 Hours Of Le Mans Is As Grueling And Awesome As The Race Itself

As an accredited motorsports photographer, I’ve been fortunate enough to cover many of the biggest series on the planet. With Formula One, MotoGP, WEC, IMSA, Pirelli World Challenge, and others on my résumé, I’ve experienced a solid mix of hurdles and successes at racetracks all over the globe. But until last week,…

Here Is Your 2018 24 Hours Of Le Mans Mega Gallery Here Is Your 2018 24 Hours Of Le Mans Mega Gallery

Getting to complete my photography bucket list didn’t come easy. For years I’ve bothered Jalopnik Editor-in-Chief Patrick George to get me there, but it ain’t cheap, and credentials for the 24 Hours of Le Mans are not easy to obtain for anyone. Finally this year the stars aligned, and I made my way down to France for…

This Badass American Porsche Team Pulled Off A Heroic Rebuild To Make The 24 Hours Of Le Mans Start (UPDATED) This Badass American Porsche Team Pulled Off A Heroic Rebuild To Make The 24 Hours Of Le Mans Start (UPDATED)

Racing the 24 Hours of Le Mans is such a monolithic effort that just getting to the starting grid is a challenge. That was especially true for Core Autosport this year, which had to pretty much start over at the last minute after one of its cars got wrecked in qualifying.

The Le Mans Driver Parade Is Absolutely Bonkers The Le Mans Driver Parade Is Absolutely Bonkers

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is a massive event, bringing out racing fans from all over the world to watch 60 cars battle it out on the unforgiving Circuit de la Sarthe, but one of the more anticipated fan events is the drivers parade through the city streets.

I’m about to scratch a major item off my photography bucket list: I’m covering the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend for Jalopnik. And in addition to shooting the race and tracking how Porsche’s team in particular wages war on track for a day straight, I have a good ride in the form of this 911 GT3.

The Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Doesn't Exist, So This Shop Created It The Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Doesn't Exist, So This Shop Created It

Everybody loves a 911, but—and trust me on this—the Porsche Cayman GT4 is the best road car the company has ever delivered. The mid-engine layout gives it incredible balance, the six-speed manual makes it highly engaging. So when you add $20,000 in upgrades to that brilliant base, you’re pretty much into a superhero…

My Porsche 964 Road Trip Went Very South In West Texas My Porsche 964 Road Trip Went Very South In West Texas

Two weeks ago Friday, I kicked off what was planned to be a badass drive from Austin to Los Angeles, delivering my friend’s Porsche 964 to him. I’ve driven from Austin to LA a few times, even in another Porsche, back when I had a 997. I drive across Texas once a year, as I have a habit of buggering off to Marfa to do…

When you’ve already got a garage stocked with Ferrari’s greatest hits, each time you add something to the collection, it has to be interesting. This particular Dino, now packing more than 400 horsepower from an engine stolen from the famous F40 supercar, would qualify as interesting.

The 725 Horsepower VLF Rocket Could Have Been So Good The 725 Horsepower VLF Rocket Could Have Been So Good

When you conceive a project that involves the design genius Henrik Fisker, the customization know-how of Galpin Auto Sports, and a car as iconic as the Ford Mustang GT, you’re off to a good start. Even more so when you add a 725 horsepower supercharged V8 engine. On paper, the VLF Rocket—driven heroically by Jeremy…

We can all make plenty of jokes about Mustangs eating pedestrians at your local parking lot car party, but this one is a bit more special. For just today, I get to test out the Mustang-based, 725 horsepower, Henrik Fisker-designed VLF Rocket V8. It’s got a supercharged 5.0-liter Coyote V8, the body is redone in carbon…

Call me crazy, but I believe if you’re going to do a long road trip, you should do it in some style. So I’m driving this tastefully touched-up Porsche 964 from Austin to Los Angeles this weekend. I’m going to enjoy it immensely.

Not many of us end up spending more on a car than on the typical mortgage, but still, there is no shortage of high performance super luxury cars to indulge every qualified buyer’s tastes. Yet this gives some cars, like the Bentley Continental GT, an air of snootiness—or nouveau riche dipshittery. Trust me, friend.…
