Specs: 784 horsepower. 737 pound-feet of torque. Twin-turbo V-6. Dual-clutch, 8-speed transmission. These are just a few of the tantalizing tidbits circulating about the next-generation GT-R. And while they're just educated guesses gleaned from industry sources at this point, all signs point to a major Godzilla upgrade. And get this: the R36 might even have a completely revolutionary hybrid powertrain.
#TeamRevv had the chance to catch up with a group of adrenaline seeking individuals and their cars on the sixth installment of the goldRush Rally that made its way through Denver on Monday June 2nd at the Four Seasons hotel.
When we caught wind that Porsche had brought a small army of engineers and a tester to our home turf of Colorado, we couldn’t help but send out the crew. What we found was that they had come for some high-altitude testing, running eight 918 Spyders and a slew of Cayenne SUVs through their passes at altitude outside of Denver. The vehicles shown here are in varying levels of condition, from test mules to near production quality. An example of the difference can be seen with the 918’s door handles and the taillights that appear to be pulled straight off a 911. The 918 Spyder is marked for the 2015 model year with a price tag nearly $900,000, and we can’t wait to get a pure production version here in Colorado.
