    Report: Porsche 911 GT3 RS getting all-new atmospheric engine
    1422655200

    Porsche surprised many of its most puritanical enthusiasts when it took a decidedly more usable approach with the current 911 GT3. But when the new GT3 RS debuts, it promises to be a much more extreme departure. And a big part of that comes down to the engine. At the Detroit Auto Show this week, Auto Express spoke with Porsche R&D chief Wolfgang Hatz ...

    Report: Porsche Cayenne diesel V8 may not be long for this world
    1422630000

    Goodbye, Porsche Cayenne V8 Diesel. We hardly knew ye. Nor did the Europeans, apparently. Porsche's V8 oil burner is still on the European model list for the Cayenne SUV, but the mill won't go through the likely pricey process of being updated to adhere to new and stricter European emissions standards, Just-Auto says. A Porsche spokesman confirmed to the ...

    Report: Porsche says next Cayenne will be faster than Bentley Bentayga
    1422565200

    Bentley and Porsche are both high-end marques under the same umbrella, and may even be collaborating on development of new models – but while they tend to take different approaches and go after different customers, that doesn't mean they can't share a bit of sibling rivalry. And that spirit of competition – even within the Volkswagen Group ...

    Video: Top Gear brings together LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918
    1422493200

    Earlier this month, Top Gear released a brief video of the comparison test between three hybrid hypercars we'd all been waiting for: the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. The story was done by the print magazine and not by the television show, and the video they released was barely over half a minute long, reserving the full version ...

    1422126000

    Porsche's grand return to the elite level of global endurance racing showed mixed success in its first year.

    Report: Porsche 911 going all-turbo this year save for GT3 and GT3 RS
    1422028800

    The coming Porsche 911 GT3 RS will represent another high-water mark for the brand, and another milestone. Its 500-or-so horsepower and extreme aero are predicted to lop more than five seconds off the 7:20 Nürburgring lap time of the current GT3, making it "comfortably less" than 7:20. Beyond that, its naturally-aspirated 3.8-litre will form the ...

    Comparo: 1983 Motorweek showdown pits Porsche 928S vs. Chevy Camaro Z28
    1421960400

    Last month, Motor Trend threw the Camaro Z/28 and Porsche 911 GT3 into the bear pit and let them fight it out. Way back in 1983, MotorWeek had the same idea, comparing the Camaro Z/28 to the Porsche 928S. At the time, the Camaro was among the best selling sports coupes, the 928S was Porsche's top-of-the-line model that also had the highest top speed of ...

    Official: 2015 Porsche 911 GTS Club Coupe Special Edition
    1421956800

    Porsche is never afraid to add one more variant of the 911 to the lineup, but its latest inclusion to the range is being kept extra limited, to keep things super special. The automaker is building just 60 examples of the 911 GTS Club Coupe, and only members of the Porsche Club of America can order them. The organization fittingly celebrates its 60th ...

    Motorsport: Fernando Alonso wants an Acura NSX, but did Honda block him from Le Mans?
    1421845200

    One of the biggest changes in store for the 2015 Formula One World Championship will see Fernando Alonso moving back to McLaren. That means he'll be driving under Honda power for the first time, after spending the bulk of his career driving for Renault and Ferrari. And being Honda's new poster child, as the two-time World Champion is fast discovering, has ...

    Report: Jay Leno's Dodge Challenger raises $585k at auction
    1421697600

    Of all the metal moved at Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale, AZ, this weekend, the one you see here was hardly the most expensive. But it's noteworthy for another reason: despite being a relatively humble, second-hand 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, raised an impressive US$565,625. That's because, first of all, it belonged to Jay Leno, and secondly ...
