Memorial Day Weekend – COBB Tuning x American Widow Project

Memorial Day is reserved for remembering those that made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the United States armed forces. This Memorial Day weekend, COBB Tuning is partnering with the American Widow Project to help support those that have been impacted by this sacrifice, our military widows.

COBB Tuning will make a $25 donation to American Widow Project for each Accessport purchased at www.cobbtuning.com beginning Friday May 26th, through Monday, May 29th. Each donation will go to help unify, educate, empower and assist our military widows in rebuilding their lives in the face of tragedy.

Taryn Davis, the founder of American Widow Project stopped by the COBB Tuning studio to share her own experience, why she started American Widow Project, the foundation mission and how you can get involved.

RENNSPORT ONE TAKES 2ND PLACE AT CIRCUIT OF THE AMERICAS 120

Rennsport One (RS1), a COBB Authorized Protuner and Dealer, campaigns three Porsche Cayman race cars in the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. If you haven’t had the pleasure of watching any of the races thus far, we highly encourage tuning into FS1 for upcoming races. A TV and streaming schedule can be found on IMSA’s website. Sports Car racing tends to have some very exciting battles and that has held true so far this season. The cars in this series mostly started life as and are as close as you’ll find to traditional street cars.

 

BY DESIGN – PORSCHE 991 TURBO S BUILD

The Porsche 991 Turbo S comes from the factory with a substantial amount of power. Even more impressive may be the rest of the drivetrain getting the power to the ground. Factory tested cars reach 0-60 miles an hour in as fast as 2.5 seconds and run the quarter mile in about 10.5 seconds. It’d be difficult for most people to improve on that. Luckily for us, the guys at By Design aren’t most people. Below are some details on the build which currently makes 819hp and 782tq at the wheels. We can’t wait to see this thing in action!
