Porsche 911 Speedster snapped again

A peculiar Porsche has been snapped testing in the European alps, blending 911 GT3 running gear with a convertible soft top. What could it be? There are a couple of options.

In this video, Porsche unleashes the new GT3 RS on the Isle of Man, piloted by race drivers Mark Higgins (Isle of Man lap record holder for four-wheeled vehicles) and Steve Plater (two-time Isle of Man Time Trial winner)...

2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS unveiled, priced from $416,500

Porsche has unveiled the new 911 GT3 RS, set to arrive Down Under in the fourth quarter of this year. Power in the new RS will come from a 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat six, making 383kW (up 15kW) and 470Nm (up 10Nm) of torque. That makes it the most powerful naturally-aspirated production 911 ever built, although forced induction helps the 911 Turbo and GT2 RS win the overall power-figure battle...

The Porsche 911 GT3 with Touring Package has made its global debut at the Frankfurt motor show this week, bringing a very different look and feel to the company's track weapon. Following the reveal of the updated 911 GT3 at the Geneva motor show in March, the Touring Package is very much like a series-production version of the sought-after 911 R limited-edition that was available last year, which essentially tailored the race-ready GT3 package for the road...

Porsche manual models still relevant, brand claims

There have been some brilliant drivers’ cars out of Porsche headquarters over the years, but the fact is that more buyers are shifting away from manual-transmission models. Porsche wanted to generate some desire for a manual model by releasing the Porsche 911 R, the first version in the current-generation range to be fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox (all manual 911 models had instead been fitted with a seven-speed stick)...
