This 996 GT3-powered Superlite Coupe has all of the trappings of that era of supercar, including low-slung striking good looks, and unparalleled track time capability, but without the huge price tag.

While it has expressed interest in joining the sport as an engine supplier, it could become a full-fledged works team by way of Red Bull. With the German automaker looking to gain a stake in the series, and Red Bull reportedly looking to sell off to become a brand sponsor, the two could be headed in a new direction that lands Porsche right in the middle of competition in as little as four years. Rumors of the two joining forces have heated up lately, as Motor Sport Magazinereports, suggesting that preliminary discussion are already underway. By buying out Red Bull, Porsche would simply take over ownership and supply a proper works engine program. This would be the first time Porsche has been so involved with the sport since a failed attempt as an engine partner back in the early '90s. This move would promote Porsche to a legitimate spot within the sport and keep Red Bull as a title sponsor. That seems like a..

  • The wide body Porsche 911s from Rauh-Welt Begriff have been a point of controversy for some time. There are those who are disgusted by the act of chopping up a classic air-cooled Porsche, and there are others that believe 911s are not only meant to be driven, but also personalized. Still, even within the camp of RWB enthusiasts, there are still heated debates regarding what an RWB Porsche should, and shouldn't, look like.Which brings us to RWB Medusa:It's a classic RWB wide body Guards Red 993, with front canards, rear fender vents, and an oversized GT wing. The body kit looks even more purposeful with Lexan windows, complete with sliders on the door, and vents over the rear quarter. A matching Guards Red colored roll cage and GT3 bucket seats further show the RWB Medusa's motorsport inspirations. Finally, a set of copper Volks TE37 wheels finishes off a proper execution.But then we get to the vinyl work, namely the giant Supreme decal across the side of the car, and ..

  • Not one to let its domestic rivals at BMW and Mercedes have all the fun, Porsche is apparently mulling over grabbing a slice of the hunchbacked-SUV pie with its own "coupe" crossover offering. Speaking to Autocar at the new 2019 Porsche Cayenne's recent Frankfurt unveil, company CEO Oliver Blume said that the carmaker is indeed "thinking about" a Cayenne Coupe that would directly compete with the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe...but added thatno concrete decisions have been made. "We analyse different segments and this can be an option in the future. Today, no decision has been taken. We have to make a calculation and talk to our customers," said Blume.Apparently, a slopier-beltlined Cayenne design already exists somewhere in the garden walls of the company, with Porsche Chief Designer Michael Mauer confirming its existence as an internal design project.

  • When the Porsche Mission E concept debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2015, its performance numbers seemed too good to be true. A track-ready, fast-charging performance sedan to rival the once-dominant Tesla Model S wasn't really feasible a few years ago, but with more companies switching to electric technology for better performance, Porsche's ambitious concept is far more real in 2017. Rumors have been swirling around the concept car since its unveiling, but Porsche is finally back this year at Frankfurt to clear the air (literally). Based on the iconic 919 Hybrid race car, Porsche's first-ever EV promises top-tier range, luxury, and performance for a reasonable price.According to CAR, the Mission E is expected to go into production late 2019, and is the first of many electric cars Porsche has planned. The car will start at $85,000, situating it at a perfect price point between the updated Panamera and 911. Porsche will reportedly offer multiple performance variant..

For 2018, Porsche folks will be travelling from across the country to gorgeous Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri to enjoy the brand with their fellow enthusiasts.
