Walter Röhrl and Porsche 904 GTS - Two Legends
Walter Röhrl and Porsche 904 GTS - Two Legends
The 904's mid-engine layout was inherited from the 718, also known as the
RSK (from the German term for racing, Rennsport), the factory's leading
race car. It was powered by the 1,966 cc (120 cu in) Type 587/3, four-cam
flat four-cylinder engine producing 198 hp (148 kW), "probably the most
complex four-cylinder" ever. It drove a five-speed transmission with a
standard 4.428:1 final drive, with available 4.605, 4.260, 3.636, and 3.362
Begun as the Type 547, its development began in 1953, when the previous
VW-based 1,100 cc (67 cu in) flat-four, used in the contemporary 356 and
rated at 38 hp (28 kW), hit the limit of its potential. Porsche realized it
needed something all-new. The brainchild of Dr. Ernst Fuhrmann, later
Technical Director, it was hoped to achieve an "unheard of" 70 hp (52 kW)
per 1 l (61 cu in), relying on hemispherical combustion chambers (what
would be called hemi in the U.S.) and 46 mm (1.8 in)-throat 46IDA3
three-choke Weber carburetors to generate 112 hp (84 kW) from the 1,500 cc
(92 cu in) four-cam engine. The 1.5 liter weighed 310 lb (140 kg) dry,
eventually producing 180 hp (134 kW). A complex design that proved "very
taxing" to build and assemble, but very durable, it was used in 34
different models, including 550 Spyders, 356 Carreras, and F2/1s.
GT3 RS 4.0: Last Drive Before Hibernation - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
English winters and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres don't mix, so I'm taking
one last drive before putting the car that is rapidly bankrupting me into
storage - special storage.

Porsche Power & Snow 2010 - Walter Röhrl and me.MTS
This is one part of the Porsche Power & Snow Winterdrift training WITH
Rallyelegend Walter Röhrl. All cars were from Porsche Austria. You can
attend this event also from any other part of the world. If you haven't had
the chance to take a seat next to Walter Röhrl, then THIS is your chance!
If you think you're a fast and confident driver, then take a ride with
Walter, LOL ;-))) My life changed positively and now I know WHAT the
Porsche 911's are able to do. Enjoy this and all my other videos, which
were taken from a basic Panasonic Lumix picture camera. PS: You think it is
slow? Well, you should know that there is only place for 1 car on this road
(it was closed for Walter of course) and the road is covered with snow and
underneath we had ICE. The maximum speed on the short straights was
120km/h!!! Don't try this at home, honestly.

Walter Röhrl & I: in a Porsche GT3 (997 MKII) on the Nürburgring Nordschleife - May 27th, 2009
Walter & I: in-car camera of the best race track in the world: the
Nürburgring Nordschleife with the man who o.k.'s every new Porsche that
leaves the Porsche factories.
If you do not know who Walter Röhrl is, just google him. Nuff said.
This was a childhood dream come true. I never expected to ever meet the
man, much less to spend a lap with him on his playground.
I have done everything, I ever wanted to do in my life.
for all the experts out there who have been at the ring:
we did a timed lap of about 7:25 minutes. I substracted about 6 seconds for
the traffic we hit and the delayed acceleration after the bilstein bridge.
At Schwedenkreuz we hit 260 kph right before the 100kph turn into Aremberg.
at the end of Fuchsröhre we hit 240kph.
The funny thing is, I was wearing a helmet, he was not...

2015 Porsche Cayman GTS: Mid Engine Perfection & The Biggest Threat to the 911! – Ignition Ep. 124
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack, Jonny Lieberman tests
the second generation Cayman in its most potent form yet. Packing 340 horsepower from an
uprated 3.4 liter flat six, the Cayman GTS makes 15 horsepower more than the
Cayman S and only 10 fewer than a base 911, while weighing hundreds of
pounds less. With the additional power, is the Cayman GTS now a real threat
to the 911, or is it simply a cynical marketing exercise from Porsche? Stay
tuned and find out!
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.
