David Beckham Porsche 911 Turbo Cab For Sale


david beckham porsche 911 tubo cab for sale

David Beckham’s murdered out matte black Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet was listed on eBay last week, but the reserve of $75,000 USD wasn’t even met (listing here)?!?!? It looks that it has been re-listed (listing here) and the current bid is at $168,000 USD after it started at $100,000 USD! Not sure how or why the original listing didn’t sell it, maybe everyone with money was too busy paying their holiday bills or because it was equipped with a TipTronic transmission ;)

RIP VRAlexander
VRAlexander Avatar Signature

RIP “Alexander Djordjevic. Famously known online as ‘VRAlexander’, Alex was a true motorsport enthousiast and a rockstar entrepreneur.

VRAlexander had a tragic accident at the 1st Annual Spectre 341 Challenge hill climb road race event this past weekend (June 26, 2010) in his Porsche 996TT. Very few facts are available at this time, however speculation and rumors suggest there might have been an engine fire failure coupled with a accident involving the non guardrail cliff.

UPDATE (6-29-2010): Associated Press

VIRGINA CITY, Nev. — A Las Vegas race car driver was killed when his Porsche slid off a curvy, mountain highway that had been closed to traffic for a sanctioned against-the-clock race.

Alexander Djordjevic, 37, died Saturday afternoon while competing in the Speed by Spectre 341 Challenge near the historic mining town of Virginia City, Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chuck Allen said Monday.

Djordjevic was wearing a seat belt and helmet. But Allen said his silver 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo was traveling at an “extremely high rate of speed” before it rolled down the embankment off state Highway 341, known as Geiger Grade, which connects Reno to Virginia City, around 4:50 p.m.

The sponsor, Spectre Performance, billed the race as pitting “the world’s fastest street cars against the clock in a full throttle blast up a mountain road.”

Djordjevic told KTVN-TV of Reno before the race that it was a “challenge to yourself and your street car to do well.”

The 5.2-mile stretch of highway was closed during the race, Allen said. The company secured the necessary state permit along with approval from Lyon and Storey counties, he said.

UPDATE (6-28-2010): Spectre Performance – Official statement

“After two days of fun and excitement, the 341 Challenge suffered a tragedy when VRAlexander was killed in an accident when he went off course.”

Porsche GT3 R Hybrid

Contrary to Michael Macht (Porsche CEO) recent statement that Porsche technology will continue to be centered around improving efficiency and not creating hybrids “We want brake regeneration and stop-start for our sports cars, but not hybrid,” explains Macht, here is the Porsche GT3 R Hybrid which will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

This new Porsche Hybrid will be based on the RWD Porsche 911 GT3 R that will take delivery to track privateers later this year. In addition to the 480hp 4.0L Flat Six it will have 2 electric motors that drive the front wheels.

2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S Details


2011 porsche 911 turbo s

Porsche has just released a new top of the line sports car, 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S. The new Turbo S will be equipped exclusively with the 7 speed PDK transmission (which I think is crap after driving the Porsche Panamera), has 530bhp (30hp more than the current 911 Turbo) and 516ft-lbs of Torque delivering 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 195mph!

Standard features on the 2011 911 Turbo S include launch control (Sport Chrono Package Option on other models), Porsche ceramic composite brakes (PCCB), Dynamic Bending Lights, 19 Inch RS Spyder wheels with a central locking nut, and all options from the current Porsche 911 Turbo 997. Rest assured you can feel good about your 530hp monster as it sips the same amount of fuel (26.8 mpg average) as the 911 Turbo.

The 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S will be available in May in Europe as coupe & convertible and then arrive in the U.S. during the fall 162010.
