Rare 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder heading to auction

A rare 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder with a successful racing history will be going under the hammer early next year. Considered one of the most original examples in existence, it is one of only 40 built by the German marque. Chassis 0145 had class wins at Nürburgring, Reims, Zandvoort and was fifth overall at Le Mans. With its small size and 1.5-litre boxer engine, the 550A was nicknamed "giant killer," for its ability to chase down bigger and more powerful race cars.

While no details have been confirmed, Autocar quotes BMW's head of development, Klaus Fröhlich, hinting that such a model is an "opportunity". "It is early to talk about X8, but one of the first decisions I made when I worked on product strategy was to take the X5 and make the X6," he said.

2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 spied

The next-generation Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 has been spied undergoing testing in Europe. The most hardcore model in the 718 range looks set to have styling to match. There's an aggressive front bumper design with large air intakes and a prominent front spoiler that juts out as far as Jay Leno's chin. At the rear, there's an unmissable diffuser, a pair of exhaust tips straddling the centre line of the vehicle, and a free-standing wing large enough to double as an office desk.
