Porsche 911 GT3: what’s new for 2015

• The all-new Porsche GT3 is based off the current 991-series platform that gives the car a wider track and longer wheelbase. Porsche calls it a composite body, using a combination of aluminium down the middle of the car and ultra high-strength steel for the outer skins of rear quarters and roof. The construction is said to draw the best balance between weight and rigidity...

2014 Porsche 911 GT3: going, going, gone

Despite wearing a price tag of just under $300,000 before on-road costs, Porsche's allocation of 40 911 GT3 models in 2014 is all but sold out. That still leaves plenty of cashed-up enthusiasts who won’t get the opportunity to strap into one of the word’s most revered high-performance machines that lays claim to being equally at home on the track as it is on the road...

BMW M3 Review – featuring E92
