Bikester found


The Bikester has been found! The one and only 1997 Porsche Bikester prototype has been found in the basement of the Porsche car collection archives. Asking the good folks at Porsche to keep looking finally paid off. Porsche has offered to have professional photos taken of the Bikester, so I'll post those as soon as I get them. However, this is definitely the frame and rims from the Bikester, but the red seat, red fenders with integrated lights and shocks have all been replaced with parts from a Bike ST. Not sure why ... the search continues!

Virtual Le Mans 24 Hours

 

On a cold day in Maryland, I’m watching the Virtual Le Mans 24 Hour race on my computer. Porsche is running two factory 911 RSRs in the GTE class.

First photos from the first shakedown test drive of the new Porsche LMDh prototype were released today. Looks sharp. Can't wait to see it race ... and in sim!

Porsche eBike X+ video

This limited edition eBike X+ came out right before the 2021 eBike Cross and Sport. But only 250 were made. This bike was probably "testing the waters" before launching the new eBikes.

Porsche knives

I still use my Porsche Design Type 301 kitchen knives everyday. Great quality knives. Probably last forever.

Winter arrived

 

Winter has finally arrived with some snow today. Yesterday was nearly 60 degrees with a walk along Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis. Today is a little snow shoveling and sim racing.

Bike S poster framed

Finishing the Bike S illustration, I printed 18"x24" at Staples and got a frame from Michaels to complete the project. The poster is now on the garage wall.

Porsche scale car and bike!

 

Never saw this before ... Spark 1/43 scale Porsche 911 turbo and Porsche Bike combo. Limited to 1,000 made in 2015. Super cool!

Bike S illustration

 

Created a computer illustration of the Bike S last night. I may print this out 18"x24" for my garage. Definitely need more posters in my garage!
