The magic of Porsche engineering was at full chat in the early 1950s when the upstart sports car company revealed its remarkable and groundbreaking flat-four engine with four overhead camshafts, two per side.

Designed by Ernst Fuhrman, the complex engines were small in displacement but mighty in high-revving output, and they quickly earned Porsche the reputation of a giant killer on international race tracks at the top of the competition game.

The 22nd annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida honors those unique racing machines March 12 in a special competition class of Porsche 4-Cylinder Giant Killers, featuring a display of such four-cam-powered cars as the 550 Spyder, 718, RSK and RS60.

“The four-cam, the 550 Spyder and the 718, is where Porsche’s ‘giant killer’ legend begins,” Bill Warner, founder and chairman of the Amelia Island Concours, said in a news release. “We’re honored to have the 1960 Sebring winning RS60 confirmed for the 2017 Amelia. This is one of the most important cars that launched Porsche on its current course earning Porsche its reputation as a ‘giant killer’.” Read more...

I'll be away from racing for a little while due to an op Tuesday. Working on the optimistic view, I hope to be at the wheel in a week or 2.

News / Bob Jane's 1963 Jaguar E-type Lightweight goes to Auction...
« on: December 14, 2016, 01:07:00 PM »

With just 12 examples constructed in-period, the E-Type Lightweight is rarer than Jaguar’s C-type (53 built) and D-type (71 built), as well as Ferrari’s 250 GTO (39 built, including three 330 GTOs). E-type Lightweights don’t trade hands very often, but next month an Australian championship-winning example, said to display less than 4,000 miles on the odometer, will cross the auction stage as part of the Bonhams Scottsdale, Arizona sale...

Hardware & Reviews / Need a laptop for my daughter...
« on: October 06, 2016, 02:36:05 PM »
Well my daughter's laptop, my old gaming laptop... has finally given up the ghost!

I need to purchase a replacement, although I would like to purchase her a Macbook Pro, I don't think my budget will stretch to that generous a purchase...

It is for home use, no gaming, just general use for a young family, and info appreciated.



You need the app, of course, and a coaster from a pub, I just screen grabbed the image of the back of the demo's coaster and used that.

Let's hope it works with the Masters' races,
