Exploring the Porsche Effect Exhibit at the Peterson Automotive Museum

  Exploring the Porsche Effect Exhibit at the Peterson Automotive Museum New Petersen exhibition explores brand’s history, style, engineering, and dedication to family in order to inform the visitors that all of these are things that exist and that Porsche does so that we can let you know that Porsche is in consequence a force in contemporary culture.What should people be looking for like oddballs they wouldn't expect to see here or historically significant artifacts?The artifacts from the Porsche Museum have never been outside the museum. We have some very rare items from the 901 development. Those items, for people who are extreme Porsche enthusiasts, are going to be special.

The refreshed Porsche718 Cayman GT4 has been caught by our spy photographers in the icy north undergoing cold weather testing. At first glance you'd mistake it for a normal 718 Cayman until you look down and see the larger air intakes in the lower front fascia, which should help cool the brakes during track sessions.

Spied! Next-Gen Porsche 911 Turbo Caught Once Again

  Spied! Next-Gen Porsche 911 Turbo Caught Once Again Iconic sports car conducts winter testing in icy conditionsLike the car we spied earlier, this prototype highlights the evolutionary styling updates coming to the next-generation 911 lineup including the double LED daytime running light strips in the lower part of the front fascia. The headlights retain the same layout as the current model, with two stacked projectors surrounded by four smaller LED lamps.

Out back is where things get pretty obvious that this Cayman is the more potent GT4 variant. The fixed rear wing hints that this is a track day special and it should help produce some extra downforce to keep the car planted on the road. Other key differences include the split exhaust tips, which is a departure from the other Cayman models and the previous Cayman GT4, all of which feature dual center-mounted units. Looking at the prototype from the side, it's clear that it's equipped with massive vented disc brakes on all four corners complete with the requisite red calipers. The blacked out alloy wheels, on the other hand, are of the same design as the ones found on the outgoing car.

The new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 should retain its naturally aspirated engine, so expect a version of the 4.0-liter flat-six found in the 911 GT3. Power ratings should check in at around 400 hp. If you were wishing for an optional PDK seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, you'll probably be out of luck because a six-speed manual will likely remain the only gearbox on offer. Like the previous Cayman GT4, expect the new one to get a limited production run.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Facelift Spied Completely Free Of Camouflage .
We're expecting an official announcement from Porsche any day now. It was barely a week ago when we saw what was reported by Australia’s Drive as the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Wearing green with bold GT3 RS striping, it was a massive leak on what promises to be the most powerful naturally aspirated Porsche ever to come from Stuttgart. We still haven’t heard an official word from Porsche on the GT3 RS, but spy photographers have caught the car testing in snow without any camouflage. It’s got the same vents, same wheels, and yes, the same bonkers wing.
