    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 ...

    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 ...

    Report: Porsche planning more plug-ins
    1421607600

    Which automaker offers the most plug-in models in the industry? The answer may surprise you, because it's not Toyota, it's not Renault or Nissan or any other automaker that might spring to mind. The answer is Porsche, which already offers the Cayenne and Panamera in plug-in hybrid spec in addition to the 918 Spyder. And it could offer more in the near ...

The sports coupe is aimed at the customer who wants open-air driving without a full convertible, all-wheel drive traction and a little extra performance, all wrapped in a ...

    Spy Shots: Another naked Porsche 911 GT3 RS caught in Stuttgart parking garage
    1420729200

    With its reveal not expected until the Geneva Motor Show in April, we have to wonder why there'd be a rode-hard-put-away-wet 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS sitting out in the open, completely uncovered. It's one thing to be caught out on the street or in triplicate at a Swedish gas station, but it's another thing to be on what looks like daily driving duty ...

    Spy Shots: Porsche Cayman GT4 looks sexy, rapid in the nude
    1420567200

    Porsche doesn't officially have a name for its more hardcore version of the Cayman, yet. The speculation is that the coupe is called the GT4 as a little brother to the 911 GT3. However, the German sports car maker apparently is not interested in keeping the model's looks much of a secret because these latest shots show it without a hint of camouflage to ...
