To celebrate the launch of the new Evolution 911 course at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone, enthusiasts can log on to www.porsche.co.uk/competition and try their hand – or should that be their ear? – at identifying a variety of iconic Porsche 911 models from history.

To this day, an integral part of the 911 driving experience includes the charismatic sound from its rear-mounted flat six engine, a virtue of the iconic sports coupe since its launch in 1963. As the 911 has steadily evolved, so its voice has changed – larger capacity engines, turbocharging and, most significantly, a move to water-cooling from air-cooling, have each influenced the accent of the 911 engine note. But with each evolution, the 911 still retains a very characteristic sound which is music to the ears of car fans around the world.

Each contestant gains entry to a prize draw for the chance to win an Evolution 911 driving experience at Silverstone.1 The Evolution 911 course is a great gift for enthusiasts wishing to experience for themselves the origin of the 911 species, as it offers the unique opportunity to drive a classic 1980s 911 3.2 Carrera and a Type 993 911 from the 1990s alongside a current generation 911 Carrera. The enduring design language ensures that a Porsche 911 maintains a consistency of style that has never gone out of fashion. Just as the styling of the 911 has evolved, so the driving experience still retains the authentic 911 character.

Costing £275 for a 90 minute program, the Evolution 911 course is the perfect starting point for drivers to travel back through the historic years of sports car performance, and experience for themselves the unique feel, character and driver involvement offered by the Porsche 911.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
