Porsche 911: Production of 991-generation ends

Production of the 991-generation Porsche 911 has come to an end, more than 12 months after the reveal of its successor. A total of 233,540 have been built since the 991-generation was launched in 2011, making it the best-selling iteration in the 911's history. The 991 represented a technological step-change for Porsche's rear-engined icon. It was lighter than its predecessor – a first for the 911 – and had a longer wheelbase.

Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 revealed

Donkervoort has revealed an impressive 70th birthday present for its founder, Joop Donkervoort, in the form of a sub-700kg supercar killer. The D8 GTO-JD70 is powered by a 2.5-litre five-cylinder Audi Sport engine, 'optimised' by the boffins at Donkervoort to make 415hp (309kW) and 520Nm. There's a side exhaust system, which should free up plenty of angry five-cylinder noise as well.
