There is no shortage of choice for powerful luxurious cruisers, which begs the question that if such incredible, every-wish-fulfilling cars exist why would you buy Bentley’s new Flying Spur? Martin Green thinks that the answer is simple: because it is a Bentley. As the new Flying Spur so elegantly illustrates.
There is design, and then there is Porsche Design. The former is general, the latter is a distinct design language all by itself. As the name suggests, the 1919 Globetimer UTC is a world time watch – a type of watch with which Porsche Design has had significant experience, starting with the world time watch with alarm function it created in the 1990s with IWC. Martin Green thinks this latest model is the best to date.
The belle of the ball at the Julien’s Auctions sale of Burt Reynolds’ belongings will undoubtedly be the last Pontiac Trans Am that the actor personally owned. But there are also a few watches that might interest, including a Panerai Luminor Marina.
The Porsche 911 Carrera 4S (992) is the eighth (!) generation of the legendary 911 and it does not disappoint. According to Martin Green, it is more muscular, powerful, faster, and more connected than any Porsche ever dressed in the Carrera S trim before.
Here are five supercharged car stories from the last five years that stand out for the extraordinary experiences that went along with them. We hope you enjoy reading them and looking at the photos. But above all, we hope you can hear those engines roaring.
For many, the Porsche 911 is the pinnacle of sportscars, a perfect blend of sophisticated design, superior functionality, and sensational performance. All Porsche Design timepieces of recent years can be distinguished by their decidedly minimalist design, inspired from the world of motor racing and, not surprisingly, the iconic Porsche 911. Here comes Porsche Design’s 911 Chronograph Timeless Machine Limited Edition in honor of the latest iteration of the 911: the 911 Carrera 4S (992).
It’s a rare event when the stars align, rarer still when they align to create what may well become a truly iconic chronograph. In fact, the Singer Reimagined Track 1 may already be truly iconic: it certainly has both the pedigree and the style. And more importantly for a horological icon, the Track 1 looks like it’s been around since the 1970s.
There’s a big overlap between the populations of watch and car enthusiasts, so it should come as no surprise that some of GaryG’s watch (and car) buddies leapt at the chance to attend the annual Singer Reimagined Monterey event this year and then took advantage of being in the area to sample other events over the weekend as well.
“Concept car” is one of the most dreaded terms among the car fans, however 70 years after the very first 356 Roadster hit the road on June 8, 1948 Porsche has now launched the new 911 Speedster Concept. Martin Green takes a look to see if there’s anything to get excited about.
Quill & Pad’s editor-in-chief, Elizabeth Doerr, and resident gentleman, Martin Green, spontaneously decided to take a small road trip to test out some watches for a day and do a little sightseeing. They chose Cologne, Germany, and took two automobile-themed watches with them: the Chopard Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition and the Nomos Glashütte Autobahn. Join them for this fun cruise down the highway!
