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.
When Rush hits theaters nationwide on September 28, moviegoers will be seeing the dramatic tale of the 1976 Formula 1 season and the legendary battle between Nikki Lauda and James Hunt. Polar opposites both on an off the track, their differing approaches to racing and life cast a spectacular backdrop for a season that dealt with success, tragedy, and a literal return from the ashes.
To help educate racing enthusiasts who perhaps don’t know a lot about Formula 1, especially the cars from the 1970s, we would like to introduce you to the other stars of Rush: Ferrari’s 312 T2 and McLaren’s M23. Thanks to a more open set of regulations for racing back in 1976 (and designs truly conceived on paper), the cars really took on their own identity. Let’s take a look at what set these two legends of racing apart.
The sportiest 911 will have its world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show: the new Porsche 911 GT3. In the 50th anniversary year of the 911, Porsche is now set to open a new chapter in race track performance sports cars.
Ahead of it's official debut at the 83rd International Geneva Motor Show, McLaren has released details and a set of stunning images to show the world-renowned vehicle in all its glory. 0-100 km/h in under 3 seconds, 0-200 km/h in under 7 seconds, and 0-300 km/h in less than 17 seconds!
