Quick Pic: My Newest Porsche Is Inbound

img_2218
The newest addition to my collection of misfit German cars is a 1976 Porsche 912E. Why? Even I’m not sure. The color is wonderful, and it has a “Goonies Never Say Die” kind of plucky attitude to it, and it was a bargain I couldn’t afford to pass up.

More after the jump.

The DFL Show: Episode 12 – Just Austin Things

pa2018250-0008

This week on The DFL Show, Eric is busy with Drag Week things, Stef is busy with Jalopnik things, and Duncan is busy with Professional Racecar Driver things, so its just Patrick and Brad talking at you this week. We have not really that much racing to cover this week, but somehow make an hour out of it anyway. Listen along and tell us what you think in the comments below.

There was Super Formula, Indy Lights finale, DTM at the Nurburgring, MotoGP, Goodwood, Drag Week, Andy Lally being a looney toon, and a few listener questions. No quiz this week because we don’t have an Eric to administer one. We spend some time discussing the death of dirt track racer Shane Unger, which as expected is uncomfortable. And as always we end out the show with our weekly awards and discuss what we’re watching next week. In case you didn’t know, Stef and Pat and Brad will all be at COTA for the Lone Star Le Mans weekend. It should be good. If you’re there, hit one of us up on social media, and say hi.

This was a bit of a down weekend, as there was not a whole lot to watch in terms of racing action. There was some vintage stuff at Goodwood, an Indy Lights championship was settled, GT Open, Stock Car Brasil, Super Formula, DTM, MotoGP and NASCAR. Okay, there was a bunch of racing, but was there anything really interesting? Let’s find out together.

Read along to see what good stuff happened this weekend. Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse. Just be aware of the fact that this post is filled with spoilers. Giant carbon-fiber, multi-element, DRS-equipped, Gurney-flapped, Spoilers! Oh, and in case you missed it, I am also hosting a new motorsport podcast these days…

How To Tell Porsche 911 Generations Apart

Bradley Brownell September 8, 2016 Hooniverse 101

14068402_10100452621591609_1147657046622366190_o

Yesterday, Jeff asked me which generation of 911 was my favorite, and I said “Short wheelbase long-hood, so 1965-68” and he replied “Cool, so is that like 964?” and I laughed. He then suggested I make a post showing photos of each generation and what some of the differences are. There are a whole lot of nuances involved here, so uh this is a glazing over how that all works. Read along to maybe learn something?

Hooniverse Motorsport News For September 5th, 2016

Bradley Brownell September 5, 2016 Motorsports

Racing and racing and racing this weekend. There was so much to cover and so little time. Let’s get cracking, we’ve got Formula 1, Indycar, WEC, NASCAR, Moto GP, WTCC, VLN, and the 24 Hours of Barcelona to cover. There was some great on-track action this weekend, and some that is a little bit on the ‘egregious’ side of the scale, absurd even. With all of this racing, what did you have time to watch this weekend? Personally I focused on the WEC race, the NASCAR truck race, and IndyCar.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 126 – #RicksOutForPorsche

C&T 126

This week it’s Cam and Brad playing host to Rick Deacon of the ClutchKick podcast. You see, Brad and Rick met up during Monterey Car Week. Don’t worry, though, we’re mostly done talking about Monterey Car Week, as we exhausted that topic last week. This time we’re talking Porsches with Rick, because he just bought a nice low-mile 1980 Porsche 924. It’s minty fresh, and just so freakin’ cool. So inevitably we spend a bunch of time talking about his new car. Oh, and Brad is picking up another Porsche, this time a 1976 912E. We talk about that a bit, too.

This week’s topics include: The three D’s, Porsche stuff, and that’s pretty much it. We had a bunch of listener questions, but they were all about Rick’s 924. Can’t imagine why…

Oh, and if you’re going to be in the greater Cleveland area next weekend, Rick will be there, and he’s organized the #CammedAndClutched rally with Cam. They’re going on a drive through central Ohio, so if you can make it, check it out. Also, check out the ClutchKick Podcast.

Quick Pic: Chuck Beck Is Such A Badass

We’ve fawned over Chuck Beck before, and we’ve fawned over motorcycles before, and we’ve fawned over Lamborghinis before. How about all three in the same picture? Yes, this is Chuck’s recently finished final product Lamborghini V12 powered home-built motorcycle. Chuck was actually my first interview, and he’s one of the most amazing people in this whole industry.

Bryce Menzies Documentary Shows Just How Nuts He Is

Bradley Brownell September 1, 2016 Motorsports

Bryce Menzies is maybe a little bit crazy, but to race wheel to wheel on dirt in 700 horsepower trucks takes a dash of insanity anyway. He’s one of those adrenaline junkies that wants to go bigger and bigger with every stunt. The kid is driven and clearly quite talented, but I’m not sure he really knows when to stop pushing. Check out this documentary in which Bryce partners with Red Bull to pull off a massive stunt and break the world record in the long jump. I appreciate the level of detail work that went in to pulling this off, at one point he mentions sending his truck to the wind tunnel, and yet there are so many variables in making it work. What do you think, can you break the new longer-than-a-football-field jump record?
