Porsche is without a doubt one of the most recognizable car producers in the world, but let's clear one thing up- in German, "E's" at the end of a word are not silent. Porsche is a two-syllable word pronounced "Porsch-a;" however, you can also say I own a Carrera, a 911, or a Boxster and any mispronunciations will be forgiven.

Porsche, founded by Austro-Hungarian, Ferdinand Porsche, unbeknownst to most was not a car manufacturer, but a development and consulting company. The most significant and well known project they worked on was the world famous VW Beetle (bug) for the German government. The first Porsche car was the Porsche 62, which was built on the beetle platform in 1939.

Where an ordinary person looks at the new Porsche 911 Carrera's front end and sees a pair of headlights, Porsche-philes instantly identify and categorize the minutest design changes made by the Sultans of Stuttgart. They clock, measure and crunch all available numbers in order to be prepared to do intellectual battle with other aficionados. The Porsche Carrera is indeed that uncommon driving machine that turns otherwise normal drivers into raving car nerds.

With the introduction of the 2012 Porsche Carrera 997 entering the fray this year, the definitive sports car continues to improve, yet the one thing Porsche-philes can continue to find common ground with, is that 2009 through 2012 Carrera can perform several notches better with a K&N E-1999 high-performance replacement air filter. The E-1999 air filter is designed to increase power and acceleration and is simple to install because it is a direct replacement for the Porsche stock air filter.

K&N employs the same sort of single-minded dedication to producing the highest quality air filters as Porsche does to creating legends. Creating superb levels of air filtration without impeding air flow or engine performance through restriction is their one goal and just like Porsche, K&N has a pedigree of race proven results. By servicing this washable and reusable air filter up to every 50,000 miles, depending on driving conditions, the E-1999 will outlast the life your Porsche 911 Carrera. K&N E-1999 is backed by a Million Mile Limited Warranty and will be the last air filter your 911 Carrera will ever need.
