  • McLaren's master plan to upset the supercar apple cart is far from done. On Wednesday, the company announced that the next road car it would unveil will be the "most extreme" street machine ever whipped up by Woking—a successor to the likes of the P1 hypercar that's factory-ready to massacre tracks across the world. The new car, which goes unnamed in McLaren's press release but which other sources claim has been reportedly given the internal designation of "P15," is not to be confused with the three-seat hyper-GT the British sports car company also has in the works (which McLaren has hinted may have the highest top speed of any car in the automaker's history). The Macca's true name will be revealed by the end of the year, with a full debut coming sometime in the first three months of 2018. While McLaren restricted our introductory glimpse of the car to the teaser image seen below—which appears to depict a high-mounted triple exhaust above the carmaker's ..

  • Porsche revealed on Tuesday that it will be introducing the sport-themed GTS trim to its 718 Boxster and Cayman sports cars. Providing an up-to-snuff power increase to 365 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque, the GTS treatment also adorns the 718 twins with splashes of black through the front fascia, headlights, and interior. The culmination of performance and an upgraded sport-appearance has made the GTS trim the most sought-after in the rest of Porsche's stable including the 911 and Macan, so it's likely that we will see much of the same story with the convertible Boxster and fixed-roof Cayman. Additionally, this middle-ground package takes the go-fast bits from higher models' specs and retains the affordable options from the models' entry points, making it the prime choice for speed enthusiasts.Don't think of it as a compromise, though, as Porsche will tell you that it's not in the least. Instead, the Stuttgart manufacturer has improved the design..

  • This morning, Aston Martin unveiled the new DB11 Volante, luxury convertible that is part of a resurgence of the British luxury carmarker that has been enjoying skyrocketing sales of its DB11 coupe, which it introduced earlier this year.With a sticker price of $216,000, United States buyers should expect to see the Volante in showrooms in early to mid 2018.Built on the same aluminum bonded structure, the Volante is designed to be lighter and sportier than its somewhat plodding predecessor. The new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 makes 503 horsepower and should add a stellar aural experience as the well-heeled Aston owner lets the wind blow through his (or her) hair.In addition to the new V-8, which is a product of Mercedes AMG's engine shop and part of a partnership with the German marque, and the new aluminum structure (a smart switch made in the DB11 Coupe), the Volante is equipped with the 8-speed ZF paddle-shift automatic transmission.We were somewhat less than impressed with the..

  • Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Friday its CEO and Vice Chairman Kwon Oh-hyun plans to step down from management, deepening concerns over a leadership vacuum at the tech giant after group scion Jay Y. Lee was jailed for bribery.The surprise resignation of Samsung's chip and display head came as he was expected to take a bigger role following Lee's arrest in February and the departures of other key executives in the wake of the bribery scandal.The move came on the same day the South Korean smartphone maker forecast record third-quarter operating profit on the back of the memory chip business which Kwon was instrumental in building into the world leader."The timing is nonsensical.

  • AMD has launched its low-cost Ryzen 3 CPU series, rounding out the mainstream desktop Ryzen lineup for 2017. There are two models, the Ryzen 3 1300X and the Ryzen 3 1200, both of which will be available around the world starting from today. The Ryzen 3 1300X is priced at Rs. 8,899 in India while the Ryzen 3 1200 will cost Rs. 7,599. GST of 18 percent is applicable, which pushes these figures up to roughly Rs. 10,500 and Rs. 8,966 respectively, though street prices can still vary. The company hopes to use low prices to challenge Intel's Core i3 series, which dominates the budget PC space. Both Ryzen 3 models have four physical CPU cores whereas Core i3 CPUs have two cores plus HyperThreading to simulate two more. The formula of more cores at lower prices has worked well for AMD at the high end and mid-range with its Ryzen 7 (Review) and Ryzen 5 (Review) lines respectively, where performance differences can be significant. AMD has called this an intentional disruption of the cores-..
