Limited Edition Red Porsche 993 400R by Gunther Werks

With as many stunning vehicles on display at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this past weekend, it’s pretty easy to get swept up in it all and miss a few things that maybe deserved more attention. Take, for instance, this Porsche 993 400R Concept by Gunther Werks. Sure, it’s a beauty, but it’s what’s going on beneath that flawless facade that’s the real treat. Porsche fans far and wide hold the 993 in very high regard, so it’s a risky vehicle to modify. But, we think the 400R hits the nail on the head – as it is essentially an upgraded 911 GT3 RS onboard a 993 chassis. That means, beneath the hood you’ll find a brawny 400+ horsepower naturally-aspirated 4-liter flat six capable of producing a whopping 330 foot-pounds of torque. It also has a widened racing-focused front-end; carbon-fiber composite panels throughout the body; and an interior accented with carbon fiber, Alcantara fabric, and billet aluminum. And that’s just the beginning. But only 25 of these gorgeous bespoke cars will ever be made, so you’d better act quickly if you hope to get your hands on one. And don’t forget to check 15 most beautiful cars of all time and 10 most expensive cars of the world.

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo: Vision of Tomorrow’s E-Mobility

Porsche unveils an electric vehicle with a spectacular design language at the Geneva Motor Show, the “Mission E Cross Turismo” – a fully electric sport crossover SUV adaptation of their not-yet-released Mission E. Porsche claims that the car will have 600 horsepower, do 0-60 in under 3.5 seconds, go more than 500km/310 miles on a charge, and charge at a rate of 400km/250 miles in 15 minutes. The car also has all-wheel steering and Porsche’s electrohydraulic Dynamic Chassis Control anti-roll system to actively stabilize the car when cornering or on uneven surfaces. As for size, the Mission E Cross Turismo is 4.95 meters/194 inches in length, which is longer than a Porsche Cayenne or Mercedes GLC/GLE but 4 inches shorter than a Model X, which puts it on the large side of the CUV category in terms of length. Porsche bills the CUV as a multi-purpose vehicle, with good ground clearance for possible off-roading and flexible cargo capacity for sports equipment like surfboards or e-bikes. Also Porsche states that the car has “eye tracking control” which can sense where the driver is looking to help bring certain parts of the vehicle’s infotainment system into focus, which are then controlled by smart touch controls on the steering wheel. And don’t forget other example of electric SUV Byton’s electric SUV.

The Porsche 911 Turbo GTstreet R – Green Beast from TechArt

The renowned German tuners from TechArt has created Porsche 911 Turbo GTstreet R – a jaw dropping, top of the range model, based on the Porsche 911 Turbo and the 911 Turbo S.

The team at TechArt imagined a new carbon fiber front apron, with an active front spoiler, designed to optimize the airflow towards the water- and oil- coolers. At the same time, the central air outlet aids to reduce the aerodynamic lift, while the laterally positioned flaps on the front bumper increase downforce and reduce drag. Also worth mentioning is the active carbon wing at the back, working its magic when Performance mode is engaged. TechArt’s GTstreet R also comes with a wide range of power upgrades, such as the 600-hp power-kit, or the 640-hp package, which takes this sportscar from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.7 seconds and 0 to 124 mph (0-200 km/h) in 9.2 seconds, while the pickiest of customers may go for an insane 720-hp offering starting early 2017. There’s also a new sports exhaust, complemented by a continuously variable pneumatic valve control, which delivers an incredible soundtrack to match the aforementioned technical upgrades. On the inside, feel free to choose one of two different variants, called Exclusive or Clubsport. The first choice includes fine leather upholstery, while the Clubsport comes with Alcantara highlights, a color-matched roll bar, six-point harnesses and door-opening straps.
