2018 Porsche 911 spied with production body

The next-generation Porsche 911 has been spied again, but this time it's wearing a disguised version of the production body, rather than panels borrowed from the current car.

Behind closed doors: What lives in the garages of your neighbourhood?

Suburban garages can be something of a puzzle. Part everyday storage solution, part potential treasure trove, their big doors do a great job of hiding the riches within. These doors spend the majority of their lives closed, but have you ever wondered what they could be hiding?
