“Das Renn Treffen“ (German for “the race meet”) is an annual Porsche meet that claims to be “the greatest Porsche event in South Florida.” I might go further to say the greatest on the East Coast. “DRT” as it is also known, entered its fourth-year last month, taking place on February 11 down in South Miami, Florida. Organizers were expecting around 450 Porsches to attend. I don’t know what the exact number was, but it was huge. Several streets filled with Porsches both old and new.

To celebrate Ferrari Friday, here are some images of mine from last weekend’s Cars and Coffee at Ferrari Tampa Bay. This is a Ferrari dealership in Palm Harbor, Florida which I’ve driven past many times over the years but haven’t been inside of, until now. (more…)
Porsche chose to unveil its 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS at E3 yesterday. Just after Microsoft revealed the new Xbox One X console, their smallest and most powerful gaming console to date, the new 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS was shown to the public for the first time. The GT2 RS is extreme in both appearance and performance, featuring the most powerful road going engine ever offered in a 911. As Dan Greenawalt of Turn 10 Studios mentioned at the reveal, this is the first time a flagship supercar has been debuted at E3.
Back in 2013, not long after acquiring my own little red ’95 Miata, I attended and reported on a local Miatapalooza event, held in nearby Lakeland, Florida. Since then, I’ve gotten to meet event organizer Randy George and many of the other friendly Florida-based Mazda Miata enthusiasts, while repairing and tinkering with my own Miata along the way. This past Saturday, Miatapalooza returned to the Tampa Bay area, taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida and I was not going to miss it.
After months and weeks of working on and planning this, I’m pleased to announce the launch of our new website, now live at hoonart.com. This new URL was part of my final project for my master’s degree. Most of my previous content as well as some curated content has been moved over there. Please follow us on the new site to stay up to date on our latest car show, motorsports, and project Miata coverage.
