PostHeaderIcon Looking For A Porsche 911 GT3? How Does A Fleet Of 18 Never-Driven Examples Sound?

We like the Porsche 911 GT3 – quite a lot, actually. It’s purposefully built, looks great, and goes like stink. However, this classified ad seeking a buyer for 18 fresh in-the-box examples looks to be a whole new level of devotion to the Stuttgart superstar.

Continue reading for the full story.

The Full Story


Looking For A Porsche 911 GT3? How Does A Fleet Of 18 Never-Driven Examples Sound? - image 756664
“The Porsches are completely identical and come draped in white paint”

Sometimes when I get takeout, I like to buy a lot – you know, like three or four meals at a time, just to have ’em chilling in my fridge, ready to go in case I get hungry later on. This is kinda like that, except with high-powered six-figure German sports cars. You know, just in case.

The ad comes from a classifieds website in the Netherlands called Marktplaats, and appears to show 18 brand-spanking-new 2015 Porsche 911 GT3s, all lined up and parked in a giant warehouse. The whole lot of ’em are up for sale, but buyers can snack on just one, or binge on all 18, if the mood strikes them.

The Porsches are completely identical and come draped in white paint. Apparently, each has never been driven, either, and each also comes with the optional Club Sport Package.

For reference, the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 makes 476 horsepower thanks to a rear-mounted all-atmosphere flat-six engine, with power routed to the rear axle by way of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The equipped Club Sport Package also makes them track-ready, throwing in goodies like an external fuel tank, six-point harnesses, black bucket seats, and a roll cage. It also appears as though they come with steel brakes, rather than Porsche’s carbon ceramic units.

“Why would anyone buy a fleet of 18 GT3's to simply park 'em? One Twitter user suggests they were originally intended for use on a race track that was never actually built, which makes sense”

So then, what’s the story here? Why would anyone buy a fleet of 18 GT3’s to simply park ’em? One Twitter user suggests they were originally intended for use on a race track that was never actually built, which makes sense.

For us, though, this feels like the Costco of top-shelf sports cars. We just wish there were more free samples to go with it.

Unfortunately, there’s no Costco-esque pricing here, as each unit is going for 134,500 euros (around $162,000), while all 18 are going for a cool 2.4 million euros (roughly $2.9 million). And that’s kinda pricey, as the same models would have gone for about $130,000 a pop here in the states.

But we wanna know – what would you do with 18 brand-new Porsche 911 GT3s? Let us know in the comments section below!

PostHeaderIcon Video of the Day: Porsche 911 Magazine Shows Some Incredible Stories Behind Porsche’s History

The Porsche 911 video magazine really is something else. It’s essentially an episodic web series that talks about Porsche. Each episode runs nine minutes and 11 seconds long because, well, that shows up as 9:11 on the time bar. Beyond the cute allusion to the 911 name, the episodes are rich in stories about the German automaker and everything about it.

Volume 5, or episode 5, of the 911 Magazine is no exception. The episode carries the theme, “Dreams,” and is divided into five different sub-episodes, beginning with Patrick Dempsey taking a trip to the island of Sylt in northern Germany with a 911 Carrera. The episode mostly features Dempsey taking in the scenery of the island and enjoying the picturesque sights with one of the finest Porsche 911 models ever built. From there, the episode dives into the racing success of the Porsche 956, the creation of the most improbable Porsche in history, a Porsche drifting in the snow, and an inside look at the TraumWerk, Hans-Peter Porsche’s incredible toy museum.

The third and fifth sub-episodes are the best ones of Volume 5. The former talks about the story of two twins — Knut and Falk Reimann — who lived in the communist-run GDR and, against all odds, managed to build their own homemade Porsche with some assistance from no less than Ferry Porsche himself. The latter is a treat to watch itself as it features Hans-Peter Porsche showcasing one of the most expansive and incredible toy collections in the world. Take the time to watch this episode of the 911 Magazine. You’re not going to regret it.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Introduced the 911 GT3 Touring Package In Response To 911 R Resale Prices

Remember the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package that Porsche released a few months ago? Turns out, Porsche had reasons for releasing that version of the 911, and it had nothing to do with adding another iteration for the sake of having one. According to 911 boss August Achleitner, the 911 T was created in part as a response to the ridiculous second-hand price the Porsche 911 R is going for these days. It’s rare for an automaker like Porsche to bother itself with what’s happening in the second-hand car market, but, apparently, the bigwigs at Stuttgart didn’t like how flippers have gone amok over the super rare 911 R by jacking up its price to seven figures. So, it responded with the 911 GT3 Touring Package, a more affordable version of the 911 R that’s cheaper and has no set production number.


Porsche Introduced the 911 GT3 Touring Package In Response To 911 R Resale Prices - image 730543
“It’s rare for an automaker like Porsche to bother itself with what's happening in the second-hand car market”

You can argue that this is something exotic automakers should have done a long time ago to combat flippers who have little interest in the beyond making money out of it. But, the truth is, doing something like this usually doesn’t make sense from a business perspective. Costs run up, workers work more, and there’s a chance that the exclusive model loses its exclusivity.

Yet, despite those reasons, Porsche still went ahead and released the 911 GT3 Touring Package. August Achleitner explained the company’s reason for releasing the 911 GT3 T, telling Road & Track that if the car can help keep the prices a “little bit lower for the average customers of cars, it’s better.”

Achleitner added that Porsche was willing to sacrifice the happiness of its high-end customers who bought the 911 GT3 for their use because the company doesn’t like the fact that other people bought the car just to make money out of it.


Porsche Introduced the 911 GT3 Touring Package In Response To 911 R Resale Prices - image 730544

So the company decided to release the 911 T with the purpose of having a lot of similarities to its 911 R counterpart. That said, the two cars aren’t identical either. The 911 R, for example, uses carbon fiber for its hood and fenders and has magnesium for its roof. The 911 T doesn’t have those specs, but it does have a new 4.0-liter flat-six engine that produces the exact 500-horsepower as the 911 R, but with an extra 500 more usable revs at its disposal.

Only time will tell if this strategy ends up being a good one for Porsche, but it is refreshing to see an exotic automaker that still has the sensibilities to listen to the cries of its frustrated fan base. Here’s to hoping that the arrival of the 911 GT3 Touring Package works out well for everyone involved.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Carrera T (2018) In-Depth Look

Along with the GT3 Touring Package, this year we also got a tighter, lighter version of the Carrera. It’s called the Porsche 911 Carrera T, a badge that harks back 1968, and it promises some old-school fun with features such as less weight, shorter transmission ratios from the manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive with mechanical rear differential lock. Let’s take a deeper look at this cool sports car.

Powering the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T is a twin turbocharged 3.0 liter flat-six with 370 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. It enables the T to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 290 km/h.while manual gearbox is standard,  PDK is available as an option. But 911 T is more about the fun of driving than outright speed, mainly thanks to a shorter rear axle ratio and mechanical differential lock, but also to some serious weight saving. There is less sound proofing and some of the windows are made of plastic, and rear seats have been omitted along with the Porsche Communication Management (PCM).

You the rear seats and PCM back in as no-cost options, but why would you want to? Other exclusive highlights of the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T (Touring) include PASM sports chassis as standard, lowered by 20 mm, the weight-optimised Sport Chrono Package, a shortened shift lever with red shift pattern and Sport-Tex seat centres. The rear-axle steering, which is not available for the 911 Carrera, is available as an option for the 911 Carrera T. Going on sale from January 2018, the Touring 911 starts at 107,553 EUR.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package (2018) In-Depth Look

Every year we are treated to a whole bunch of new 911 models, but only a handful of them are interesting enough to warrant a close inspection. The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package is certainly one of those, a wing-less, manual version of the GT3 built for purists. Here we take a close look at this superb machine in detailed pictures and videos. 

The distinguishing feature of the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package is a variable rear spoiler like the 911 Carrera in place of the regular GT3 large fixed wing. Being a pure sort of 911, the car features a four-litre naturally aspirated engine with 500 horsepower and 460 Nm. Sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission, that power propel the Touring Package to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 316 km/h.

Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package exclusive features include PCCB ceramic brake, the lift system, LED headlights, all seat variants, the Chrono Package and the audio systems. It also gets rear wide arches and forged alloy wheels with central locking. At the front, 245/35 ZR 20 tyres are fitted on nine-inch wheels, while at the rear 305/30 ZR 20 tyres are mounted on twelve-inch wheel rims.Obviously, there are omissions,namely the infotainment system. And true to Porsche philosophy of less is more, the cost of a GT3 TP is 152,416 EUR.

PostHeaderIcon Wannabe Burglars Crash Truck into a Porsche Dealership, Leave on Foot

Crimes never pays. Okay, well sometimes it does if you’re really good at it, but most people aren’t. Such is the case with three men that attempted (and failed miserably, I might add) to steal the safe from a Porsche dealership in Houston, Texas. In what is known as a “smash-and-grab,” three men drove their pickup into the Porsche dealership, wrapped a 50-foot chain around the safe, then attempted to pull a Fast-5 move and drag the safe from the building. It might have worked, but the bumper of the Silverado used go stuck on the door frame, leaving the would-be thieves no choice but to leave on foot. Not only did they fail miserably, but they lost their vehicle and was apparently caught on camera. We couldn’t make this stuff up. Oh, and the damages – those are pretty extreme considering the damaged cars in the showroom. Keep reading to find out and see some photos from the failed burglary.

$210,000 Porsche 911 Destroyed

So, not only did the thieves failed to get the safe they wanted oh so badly, these idiots lost their truck too. But, that’s not the half of it. It’s estimated that the building sustained at least $50,000 in damage, while the real tear-jerker comes from the cars that were damaged in the process – one of which was a $210,000 Porsche 911 Turbo. As you can see from the images, they used a pretty gnarly chain, but what should have been on their minds was whether or not their truck had the balls to pull off the heist. Guess they should have gone with something better than.. what is that? An early-to-mid-2000s Chevy Silverado?

The worst part is, the General Manager, Michael Denney, has said there isn’t even much of value inside the store outside of the cars.: “It’s unfortunate; there’s just nothing, we don’t leave anything around, maybe you could grab a couple of shirts, those have tags on them too. There’s nothing in here that’s sitting around, that’s worth tearing a whole dealership to get to.”

And there you have it, folks. Probably the dumbest thing you’ll hear about all week. What do you think? Did these guys watch Fast 5 one too many times or are they just desperate for money around the holidays? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Is Now Making Honey

When was the last time the words “Porsche” and “honey” were mentioned in the same sentence? Years ago? Never? As implausible as it sounds, it’s not a figment of our imaginations anymore; it’s the real deal. Porsche, the company famous for building some of the most iconic sports cars in the history of the world, is now selling honey.


Porsche Is Now Making Honey - image 751946
“Porsche is actually harvesting the honey from bee colonies it set up in May 2017 around its production facility in Leipzig, Germany”

Before you start snickering at the thought of Porsche branching out from the auto world into the food business, it’s important to remember that this isn’t a hokey joke that was made up for spits and giggles. Porsche is actually harvesting the honey from bee colonies it set up in May 2017 around its production facility in Leipzig, Germany.

In the short space of seven months, Porsche has already produced more than 400 kilos (882 pounds) of honey, which it now sells in jars at its customer center shop under the “Turbienchen” name.


Porsche Is Now Making Honey - image 751947
“The bees themselves were only introduced this year in response to the declining population of German bees”

It’s unclear if harvesting and selling honey was one of Porsche’s end-goals when it established a 132-hectare nature reserve around its area in the early 2000’s, but the project has reaped benefits for a lot of parties concerned. Back in 2002, Porsche established colonies of Exmoor ponies and cattle in the area. The years that followed saw a dramatic increase in animal life, a lot of whom have made the area their homes.

The bees themselves were only introduced this year in response to the declining population of German bees. As it turned out, Porsche’s decision to introduce the insect has been so successful that the company already has plans to expand it in 2018.
“We will continue the initiative next year, and we are planning to expand it. Our nature reserve offers the ideal conditions for bees,” Gerd Rupp, chair of the executive board at Porsche Leipzig, said in a statement.

If that expansion happens, you can be sure that we’ll be seeing more of the “Turbienchen” honey in our lives.

PostHeaderIcon A Porsche with Less Than 2.0-liters of Displacement? Probably Not Going to Happen

Porsche’s decision to fit a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine inside the 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster models didn’t sit too well with some of the brand’s most hardcore supporters. Fortunately, they shouldn’t worry about seeing a smaller engine on future models because Porsche has no plans of ever going that route. The German automaker indicated that it could do it if it wanted to, but it’s not considering that option because it doesn’t make sense from a performance point of view.


2017 Porsche 718 Boxster - image 663430
“A smaller 1.0-liter engine may be lighter in comparison to a 2.0-liter mil, but if Porsche wants more torque out of the whole hybrid setup, it’s going to need to add a bigger and more sophisticated hybrid system”

Michael Steiner, a member of Porsche’s executive board for research and development, spoke to Autoguide on the sidelines of the LA Auto Show about this specific issue. According to Steiner, Porsche can use an engine as small as a 1.0-liter, but that kind of application wouldn’t make sense for road-going production cars for a number of reasons, including the complexities of adding a hybrid system to work with the engine. “At some point, it would make no more sense to downsize the combustion engine and put more and more electric energy into the vehicle,” he said.

Another issue with this powertrain equation is weight, something that Porsche has always been very careful of in the development of its cars. “If you would like to have good performance and very precise and fast reaction to any movement of the gas pedal, you need torque, not only power,” Steiner added. A smaller 1.0-liter engine may be lighter in comparison to a 2.0-liter mil, but if Porsche wants more torque out of the whole hybrid setup, it’s going to need to add a bigger and more sophisticated hybrid system to account for the needed torque figures to help the car perform like a proper Porsche. Developing that kind of hybrid system will also cost Porsche money, something it’s not keen on doing if it doesn’t have to do it.

So while it is possible to see a 1.0-liter engine on a Porsche — the 919 racer has one — it’s not something that Porsche is keen on doing with its production cars. Rest easy, purists. You can put the pitchforks down now.

PostHeaderIcon The Porsche 911 T Goes on a Diet, Proves Porsche can Reshuffle its Deck

The phrase “less is more” applies to a lot of things in this world. It doesn’t, however, apply to the Porsche 911. In this case, “more is more” is a better way to describe the 911, and, for its part, Porsche is giving the people what they want with the arrival of the 911 Carrera T. The arrival of the 911 Carrera T comes at a time when Porsche is doing right by its loyal fan base by living up to its promise of introducing more “pure” iterations of the iconic sports car. The 911 R and the 911 GT3 are already around to tickle the purist’s fancy. Now it’s being joined by a new derivative that’s almost 50 pounds lighter than the standard 911. Happy days are ahead for Porsche 911 fans because the 911 Carrera T has arrived.


The Porsche 911 T Goes on a Diet, Proves Porsche can Reshuffle its Deck
- image 749048
“The Carrera T weighs just 3,142 pounds. That’s almost 50 pounds lighter than the standard 911 Carrera.”

Weight-savings is a big deal in the world of sports cars, and we see that on full display in how the Porsche 911 Carrera T is packaged. The model actually starts off as a standard Carrera unit, but in the name of cutting weight, the rear seats and the infotainment system are taken out. There is an option for these parts to be put back in, but that defeats the purpose of cutting weight, doesn’t it? In any case, the Carrera T weighs just 3,142 pounds. That’s almost 50 pounds lighter than the standard 911 Carrera.

Beyond the cut in weight, the 911 Carrera T also features a 3.0-liter biturbo flat-six engine that produces 370 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, exactly the same amount of power that the base Carrera has. But since the Carrera T is a weight class lower than its standard counterpart, it’s capable of sprinting from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds. That’s 0.1 seconds quicker than the standard model. The top speed for this new variant sits at 182 mph with the standard manual transmission and 180 mph with the optional PDK unit.

At the end of the day, any sports car’s value is largely dependent on its actual value. The Porsche 911 Carrera T does well for itself in that regard because it starts at $102,100. Sure, it’s $11,000 more than the standard 911 Carrera T, but with all of its improvements, I’d say it’s worth the extra $10K. Should you agree and you’re looking to get one, orders for the newest 911 derivate are already being taken. Sign up for one, and you can expect yours to be delivered sometime in the middle of 2018.

PostHeaderIcon Worth Seeing: Frozen Berry Porsche 911 for Laura Siegemund

In recent years Porsche Exclusive has presented us with more unique, one-off paint jobs than ever ever before. They are now at a stage where they can paint your car in any shade you desire. So when tennis champion Laura Siegemund asked for a Frozen Berry Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet as her prize, they said no problem!

And here’s the unusual, but interesting result. Laura’s Frozen Berry Porsche 911 is certainly the only Porsche and quite possibly the only car in the world finished in this color. They have done such a brilliant job getting this difficult color just right that you just want to bite into this Porsche. And you are almost sure it is going to taste like frozen berry as well!

The Frozen Berry Porsche 911 C4 GTS Cab was Laura Siegemund’s prize for the biggest win of her career on 30 April 2017 at Porsche Arena in which the 29-year old from Filderstadt won the 40th Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. The price was handed over to her by Anke Huber, the Operating Tournament Director of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix and Frankow Dorow, the director of the Stuttgart Porsche Center at the company’s Stuttgart center. This is a good advertisement for Porsche to let wealthy customer know they can fulfill their fantasies, no matter how crazy, provided they come up with with a fat enough check. These one-off colors can be quite expensive.





“It’s for sure the most coveted winner’s trophy on the WTA Tour and it was an unbelievable feeling when I won it,” said Laura Siegemund, who has been out injured for most of the year. She however has had to overcome a number of setbacks in her career and is also now looking positively into the future: “I definitely want to be back competing at the 2018 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.”

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 By Singer Vehicle Design

Founded in 2009 by British musician Rob Dickinson, Singer Vehicle Design is a California-based customization and restoration shop that specializes in 964-era Porsche 911s. In the past, we’ve seen loads of lust-worthy cars from Singer, but this latest example bests them all. Commissioned by client Scott Blattner, the goal was a lightweight, high-performance revamp of Blattner’s 1990 911, but the end product goes above and beyond in just about every single way. For starters, Singer sourced input with some of the biggest names in Porsche performance, including motorsport engineer Norbert Singer, engine specialist Hans Mezger, and racing driver Marino Franchitti, not to mention automotive journalist and Top Gear host Chris Harris. Big-name companies like Michelin, Brembo, and BBS Motorsport also got in on the mix, while Williams Advanced Engineering (yep, the F1 folks) played a major role in the vehicle’s technical development. The project took two years to complete, but the results are staggering. Dubbed the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study, or DLS, every part of the 911 was tweaked, and Singer is so happy with it, the tuner is now offering special DLS services to select customers.

Blattner explains – “The question became… what if Singer worked on restoring and modifying my beloved 27-year old Porsche 964, with the assistance of an engineering concern born from the world of F1. How would such a car look and how would it perform?” Read on to find out.

“The 911 you see here manages to strike a balance between looking good and going fast”

From the off, there’s obviously something very special about this 964. While it might have the same general shape as its factory siblings, the reworked DLS gets a slew of tasteful enhancements that not only make it look incredible, but upgrades the performance potential as well.

Let’s start off with the styling, which comes draped in a unique shade of green Singer is calling “Absinthe.” While not necessarily understated, the color isn’t in some retina-searing red or yellow, and it gives the whole thing an exclusive feel very much in line with the rest of build. The fenders also get substantial flares front and back, which help to house the mammoth tires mounted in the corners. Chrome detailing can be found around the headlight housings and the window surrounds, while both the front and rear bumpers get a reshape.

“Chrome detailing can be found around the headlight housings and the window surrounds, while both the front and rear bumpers get a reshape.”

Speaking of the bumpers, the 911 you see here manages to strike a balance between looking good and going fast, which means that jaw-dropping aesthetic is matched with a litany of nerdy details to help it warp the atmosphere to its advantage. For example, check out the carbon underspoiler in front and the side skirts in the flanks, plus the integrated rear spoiler and intricate composite diffuser in the tail.

Those components are the product of extensive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, courtesy of Williams Advanced Engineering with consultation from Norbert Singer. Rest assured – this thing is functional, from the new intakes in the nose, to the ram air element in the rear side windows, to the rounded vents in the taillights.


2017 Porsche 911 By Singer Vehicle Design - image 745410

And oh yeah, did we mention how good it looks?!

Finally, rounding it out is a set of wheels from BBS Motorsports. Rocking a classic deep-dish, five-spoke 911 design scheme, these 18-inch rollers are made from forged magnesium and utilize a monobloc construction for superlative low weight, plus a race-inspired center-locking mechanism to keep them in place.

We could talk about the details on this thing for days, but it’s probably better if you see them for yourself in the photo gallery. Just be ready to have a new desktop wallpaper after you’re done.

Interior

“Once again, the attention to detail is astonishing”

Unsurprisingly, the interior of this 911 is extensively customized as well, with an utterly breathtaking design that has us drooling for more. Following the lightweight theme, carbon fiber is used extensively, and can be found on the dash, door inserts, central tunnel, steering wheel, and seat backs. Bare metal finished in the same Absinthe color scheme joins the composites, while the rest of it gets hide coverings done in Blood Orange.

Once again, the attention to detail is astonishing. Everywhere you look, there’s something interesting to inspect. For example, the steering wheel is a custom three-spoke unit, while the pedals are made from brushed metal. The dash design is simplified and clean, and Singer maintained the rear seats with bits of hide as well. There’s even an exposed shift linkage in the central tunnel.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – who doesn’t like an exposed shift linkage? Bad people, that’s who.

Drivetrain


2017 Porsche 911 By Singer Vehicle Design - image 745409
“This screamer pumps out as much as 500 horsepower when you press the long skinny pedal on the right”

Like any proper enthusiast tribute to the 911, this custom 964 comes with an air-cooled flat-six powerplant mounted out in the rear. Standout features include four camshafts and natural aspiration. Developed with technical input from Williams Advanced Engineering, plus consultation from none other than Hans Mezger, the same German mastermind who made the type 804 flat-eight for Formula 1, the Le Mans-winning Porsche 917, and the M96/72 dry sump engine derived from the 911 GT1 EVO, this screamer pumps out as much as 500 horsepower when you press the long skinny pedal on the right. Routing the muscle to the rear wheels is a lightweight six-speed manual transmission, which is carved from magnesium to help shave substantial pounds.

Singer has declined to provide further specs or performance figures, but considering this bespoke 964’s ultra-wide rubber and drastically reduced curb weight (more on that in a bit), you can bet this thing is an absolute rocket ship. If we had to guess, we’d say it probably does the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in the low-3-second range, possibly breaking into the 2’s if driven to its maximum.

Chassis And Handling


2017 Porsche 911 By Singer Vehicle Design - image 745412
“The DLS uses plenty of titanium, magnesium, and of course, carbon fiber.”

Given this car’s laser-like focus on cutting out every undesirable pound possible, Singer went to town with the exotic materials. As such, the DLS uses plenty of titanium, magnesium, and of course, carbon fiber. The final result of the diet is a dry weight of just 2,180 pounds.

To make the most of the extensive lightening, this 964 incorporates a variety of suspension modifications. Again, Singer doesn’t go into detail, but does mention stuff like “enhanced geometry” and “improved adjustability.”

Headlining the parts list in this area are new dampers from EXE-TC, a U.K.-based company that offers a variety of products for sharpening many a 911’s performance. Meanwhile, Michelin provides the tires, with a Pilot Sport Cup 2 compound customized for this specific application. Finally, the brakes are from Brembo, incorporating lightweight monobloc calipers, plus rotors made from a carbon composite material.

Prices


2017 Porsche 911 By Singer Vehicle Design - image 745411

To keep the DLS series of vehicles somewhat exclusive, Singer will only build 75 examples, each of which will be a unique creation custom tailored to the whims of the client, from a stripped-down performance beast, to a cushier touring machine, and everything in between. Singer chose not to divulge exact pricing, but it’s expected the final figure will depend on the level of modification and restoration desired. If we were to guess, we’d say this particular example probably comes close to the seven-figure mark.

All DLS Singer vehicles will be built in the U.K. at the tuner’s newest factory at the Williams campus in Oxfordshire.

Old-school cool, new school engineering. That’s what makes the above-featured 911 so amazing, and indeed, it’s the same stuff that went into the Eagle Spyder GT. Built on the bones of an original Jaguar E-Type, the Eagle Spyder GT comes with a modernized interior, an all-aluminum 4.7-liter XK six-cylinder engine, and updated independent four-wheel suspension, not to mention 330 horsepower at the rear wheels.

Conclusion


2017 Porsche 911 By Singer Vehicle Design - image 745403
“You can feel the passion that went into this car just by looking at it.”

We here at TopSpeed have seen more than our fair share of custom cars, but this one in particular stands out in a number of ways. First off, it looks gorgeous, but not in an overly flashy kinda way. It’s got all the style as the factory car, but with just enough extras to make it look unique and sleek. Secondly, the interior is quite well executed, with a bevy of details that match the exterior’s nonchalant awesomeness. Finally, it’s got tons of power and performance, boasting development input from a veritable who’s-who list in the world of automotive performance – it’s got aero designed by an F1 team, an engine by Hans Mezger, and driving dynamics designed to make Chris Harris smile.

Even Singer Vehicle Design Founder and Creative Director, Rob Dickinson, is impressed, saying, “On a technical level, the study has been fascinating and has resulted in an incredible restoration with the benefit of top drawer resources and modern science. Artistically it has been a second chance to connect with the machine on a new level.”

He continues, “Aesthetically, I’ve been working closely with friend and creative sparring partner Daniel Simon and a great team here in California to present ideas that work functionally as well as emotionally for our clients.”

You can feel the passion that went into this car just by looking at it. This is a 911 for enthusiasts, by enthusiasts. All we can say is – wow.

  • Leave it
    • Absurdly expensive
    • Begs to be driven, but do you dare to take it out of the garage?

PostHeaderIcon Next-Gen Porsche 911 Turbo to Get GT2 RS Engine Parts, up to 630 HP

The next-generation Porsche 911 has been spotted testing on public roads numerous time since 2016, and more recently it was joined by the Turbo version. Along with the first spy shots also came the first rumors, which claim some pretty impressive performance figures. According to Autocar, while Porsche is planning to offer a hybrid model for the first time, electrification will occur in the non-Turbo variants. The latter will remain gasoline-only cars, mostly because Porsche wants to keep weight low and improve the power-to-weight ratio in its attempt to better compete with the Ferrari and its incredible 488 GTB. Output will also increase significantly by means of engine parts sourced from the GT2 RS.

Yup, Porsche is going all extreme with the Turbo and Turbo S using what it learned from developing the 911 GT2 RS, a car that lapped the Nurburgring in an incredible 6:47.3 minutes. There’s no specific word as to what parts will be borrowed, but recent reports claim that the 911 Turbo will arrive with close to 600 horsepower, while the 911 Turbo S will get a whopping 630 horsepower. With this in mind, let’s see how the new 911 Turbo will compare to the outgoing model.

Continue reading for the full story.

A lot of extra oomph


2020 Porsche 911 Turbo - image 720873
“As for the 911 Turbo S, a 630-horsepower rating means that output jumps by a solid 50 horses”

The revised twin-turbo, 3.8-liter flat-six (or will it be a 4.0-liter?) will crank out an extra 61 horses in the upcoming 911 Turbo. As for the 911 Turbo S, a 630-horsepower rating means that output jumps by a solid 50 horses. This new rating not only makes the Turbo S the most powerful not-GT 911 ever built but also brings it within only 30 horsepower of the Ferrari 488 GTB. The car will become quicker to 60 mph too. The Turbo S will probably do it in less than three seconds for the first time at 2.9 clicks, while the Turbo S should go below the 2.8-second mark with Sport Chrono, which will make it faster than the Ferrari. Both cars should be able to exceed 200 mph, while the Turbo S will probably hit close to 210 mph.

New Chassis


2020 Porsche 911 Turbo - image 720872
“Combined with new active aerodynamics, the entire package should push the 911 Turbo even more into supercar territory”

The enhanced drivetrain will benefit from a revised version of the MMB chassis. It will provide a wider track for increased stability and will shave a significant amount of pounds by more extensive use of high-strength steel and aluminum. Combined with new active aerodynamics, the entire package should push the 911 Turbo even more into supercar territory. Which is a good thing as the next-generation GT2 RS is quite a few years away.

PostHeaderIcon Don’t Hold Your Breath Waiting For An Electric Porsche 911

Our friends over at Autocar recently had a chance to sit down with Porsche CEO Oliver Blume and talk about the brand’s future. During the interview, Blume divulged that while an electrified 911 was indeed on the table, it likely wouldn’t see the light of day for at least a decade.


2019 Porsche 911 - image 694674

Rumor has it the next-gen 911 is already well on its way, and according to Blume, it’s being developed with the possibility for electrified power. However, that doesn’t mean it’ll definitely come with a plug-in point, as Blume also reiterated that the 911 won’t ditch internal combustion altogether for at least another 10 to 15 years. That said, Porsche is definitely taking the idea quite seriously, and a hybrid might arrive sooner than that. “When customers want it to be electric, we can be ready,” Blume said.

““When customers want [911] to be electric, we can be ready,” Blume said.”

But if the new 911 does have the potential for hybrid power, why not just release it now? After all, hybrid sports cars are uber popular these days, right? Blume didn’t say exactly why not, but odds are it needs a good deal of development before the brand feels comfortable with such a major change to its number-one iconic model. Weight is likely a major issue, as is the unending rage of Porsche purists who still can’t get over the fact 911’s are no longer air-cooled.

That said, the purists are gonna need to get over it, as the momentum is most definitely behind electrification. Volkswagen is hoping to have electric and hybrid variants across its range by 2030, including those in the Porsche stable. Throw in the fact Porsche took victory at Le Mans with the hybrid 919, plus the inevitable release of the Mission E and the success of hybrid variants of the Cayenne and Panamera, and the pure-ICE 911’s days are numbered.

PostHeaderIcon Watch A Brutal Crash At The ‘Ring Involving Over A Dozen Cars: Video

We all know the Nurburgring is one of the most dangerous tracks in the world. Mixing maximum speed with huge elevation changes, blind corners, and highly technical challenges, it’s no wonder Jackie Stewart dubbed this place The Green Hell. Throw in a slick racing surface and open lapping with amateurs, and things can get really ugly. Case in point, this 2-minute, 8-second video showing a first-person perspective of an incident that occurred earlier in the month, wherein a group of cars create a massive pileup around a fast section leading to Hatzenbach. After spotting cars stopped on track and a huge cloud of smoke, the driver shooting the video pulls off to the outside of the track, exiting his vehicle before attempting to flag down incoming cars and warn about the impending parking lot. Some cars manage to avoid crashing, while others spin out helplessly. One Porsche even slides backwards into the stationary racer that the cameraman had exited just moments prior.

The video was originally posted to Facebook by RE FS420, and has been making the rounds on the internet ever since. According to BridgeToGantry.com,
the original cause of the incident was a blown coolant hose on a 911 GT3 RS, which spilled fluid on the track, resulting in several drivers losing control. In total, 14 cars were involved, with two drivers requiring hospitalization, one of which needed to be cut free from his Audi and airlifted to emergency care.

It’s a chilling reminder of what can go wrong when pushing a car to its limits. Stay safe out there, folks.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS

When it unveiled the 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 in February 2015, Porsche finally did what gearheads had been asking for a very long time: it allowed the mid-engined Cayman to live up to its true potential, which had been kept leashed to prevent it from being faster than the base 911. Now that the first Cayman GT4 has come and gone and the mid-engined sports car it was based on received its mid-cycle update, it’s time for a new track ready coupe.

Ever since the first GT4 was announced, enthusiasts have been asking themselves whether Porsche will take things up a notch and develop a GT4 RS. But, despite favorable rumors and the fact that an RS version would make sense, a more powerful GT4 has yet to happen. This could change with the upcoming model, which has just been spotted testing on public roads. And even though there’s no confirmation whether it will be called the GT4 or GT4 RS, the new coupe will definitely pack a significantly beefed-up engine. So I’m tempted to go with an “RS” badge.

Updated 11/15/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 out for a new testing session – and as you can notice the exhaust pipes have moved out a few inches on each side.

Why Porsche Needs an Updated Cayman GT4?


2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS - image 637442
“Imagine all the fun you could have with a lighter and more powerful Cayman.”

Before we jump into the details, let’s discuss why Porsche would even need a more capable Cayman GT4. As a full-fledged GT in the Porsche lineup, it would be weird for the GT4 not to evolve into a traditional nameplate like the 911 GT3. It could also use an “RS” badge, either in addition to the GT4 or as a replacement model. Even the turbocharged 911 GT2 got upgraded into an RS at some point, so why skip the Cayman GT4? I’m not looking for reasons against it, but I’m sure some might argue that the RS badge is restricted to the 911.

Fortunately, this isn’t true, as Porsche already used it (to some extent) on the 718 race car of the late 1950s. So using it for the Cayman wouldn’t hurt Porsche’s heritage, especially now that the Cayman also sports a “718” emblem. Also, the GT4 could be both lighter and more powerful. Porsche could use even more carbon fiber to shed more pounds and squeeze more power from the flat-six engine. Just imagine all the fun you could have with a lighter and more powerful Porsche that benefits from all the advantages of a mid-ship layout.

“The new track car will be a mix between the previous Cayman GT4 and the facelifted 718 Cayman.”

The test car isn’t exactly relevant here, mostly because it doesn’t have all of the features that make the GT4 unique, but it’s by no means difficult to imagine what this track-ready sports car will look like. Simply put, it will be a mix between the previous Cayman GT4 and the facelifted 718 Cayman.

That said, look for Porsche to put all those aero features on the 718 Cayman’s new styling cues. Up front, highlight will include a slightly wider front end with a new bumper that will include wider vents. Naturally, the bumper will have a more aggressive design, the intakes will be bigger, while the splitter will suggest that you’re looking at the Cayman’s 911 GT3 equivalent. It will also have the new bi-xenon headlamps or the optional units with four-point DRLs.

Onto the sides, the wider wheel arches and beefed-up side skirts will be complemented by the new character lines above and below the side intakes and the revised door handles. Also look for new mirror caps and redesigned wheels, likely measuring 20 inches.

“Much like the standard 718 Cayman, the GT4 will change dramatically around back.”

Much like the standard 718 Cayman, the GT4 will change dramatically around back. It will sport new taillights with 3D LEDs and four-point brake lights, as well as the vintage-looking black trip with integrated “Porsche” lettering. This features was first used on 1990s 911 Carreras and looks absolutely gorgeous on the Cayman. The wing and aggressive diffuser that make the GT4 stand out in the lineup will also get significant changes for improved performance.

All told, the 718 Cayman GT4 will retain the nameplate’s already familiar looks, but it will boast a more modern feel.

Interior


2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 - image 615251

Note: Previous Porsche Cayman GT4 interior pictured here.

“Much like its predecessor, it will have sports seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara for improved lateral support.”

Inside, the new 718 Cayman GT4 will come with a number of extras compared to the standard model. Much like its predecessor, it will have sports seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara for improved lateral support and a smaller sports steering wheel.

The Sport Chrono Package will be standard, as will be the “Sport Plus” button that stiffens the suspension, sharpens throttle response, and quickens the steering. The Track Precision App, likely in upgraded form, will enable drivers to gather data while on the track. Options should include carbon-fiber racing bucket seats, among other motorsport-inspired goodies.

On top of the GT4-specific features, look for all the updates that came with the Cayman’s facelift. The list includes a revised dash with new A/C vents and an updated instrument cluster. You’ll also be able to add USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Porsche Car Connect, and even a premium sounds system should you be willing to sacrifice the car’s tremendous lightweight nature.

Drivetrain


2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS - image 637563
“There's no doubt that the GT4 will be the quickest and most powerful Cayman ever made, but the drivetrain is still a mystery as of this writing.”

There’s no doubt that the GT4 will be the quickest and most powerful Cayman ever made, but the drivetrain is still a mystery as of this writing. As you might remember, the 718 Cayman went turbo all the way, with both the 2.0- and 2.5-liter engines using forced induction. There have been reports that the GT4 might continue as a naturally aspirated car, but again, the specific engine is unknown.

“The Germans could also use a detuned version of the 4.0-liter in the 911 GT3 RS.”

Logic dictates that Porsche would go with an uprated version of the 3.8-liter flat-six that the previous GT4 borrowed from the 911 Carrera S, but the Germans could also use a detuned version of the 4.0-liter in the 911 GT3 RS. Either way, the flat-six will crank out well in excess of 400 horsepower. My bet is on around 430 horses, which will be a nearly 50-horsepower increase compared to the outgoing, 385-horsepower coupe.

The more powerful engine and revised chassis components will also return improved performance. With the previous GT4 able to hit 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, the revised track could hit the same benchmark in under four seconds. Top speed should also increase from 183 to around 187 mph.

Prices


2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS - image 715615

It’s way too early to talk about prices here, but it’s safe to assume the GT4 RS will become the most expensive Cayman ever. With the previous GT4 priced from $84,600, the revised coupe will likely cost $90,000 before options.

Competition

2016 Lotus Evora 400


2016 Lotus Evora 400 - image 617787

Since 2009, Lotus has been giving the Cayman a good run for its money with the Evora. For 2016, the Brits have updated the sports car with a new body shell and a more powerful engine, making it a suitable competitor for the Cayman GT4 and the upcoming RS. The updated supercharged, 3.5-liter V-6 is now capable of 400 horsepower and 302 pound-feet of torque, which should be enough to pose a threat to the GT4 RS. The extra grunt also enables the Evora 400 to hit 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and top out at 186 mph. This race car for the road will arrive in the U.S. with a sticker set at $89,900, which puts it on par with the GT4. Those not keen on rowing their own gears, the Lotus comes with an optional automatic transmission.

2014 Alfa Romeo 4C


2014 Alfa Romeo 4C - image 505229

Alfa Romeo’s first mass-produced vehicle to arrive in the U.S. since 1995, the 4C is a milder proposition to the Cayman GT4 RS. Unlike the Porsche, it carries a much smaller, turbocharged, 1.75-liter four-banger rated at “only” 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Though it’s less powerful than the base Cayman, the 4C is quite quick in a straight line, needing only 4.5 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill. It might not be as track-focused as the Cayman GT4 RS, but it’s significantly more affordable at $54,000. There’s no word as to whether Alfa Romeo plans to build a more hardcore version of the 4C, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see one hit the streets in a couple of years.

Read more about the Alfa Romeo 4C here.

Conclusion


2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS - image 715606

Though the Cayman GT4 is arguably the hottest compact sports car around, it’s hard not to dream about a more powerful version, especially since the first GT4 is long sold out. The GT4 RS would combine everything Porsche has learned while developing the new 911 GT3 with the advantages of a mid-ship configuration, which would result in a tremendous race car for the road. Moreover, a GT4 RS would also enable Porsche to develop a racing program for the Cayman and offer privateers a more affordable alternative to the 911. In the meantime, all we can do is keep our fingers cross for the Cayman GT4 RS to happen as soon as possible.

  • Leave it
    • Not confirmed for production yet
    • Would be pretty expensive

PostHeaderIcon Latest Singer 911 Is a Beautifully Restored 964

Anyone who argues cars cannot be art has certainly never seen a Singer 911. All these cars are amazing works of arts, but this latest one, a 1990 Porsche 964 restored and modernized to the buyer’s detailed specifications, is just friggin’ mesmerizing!

This Singer 911 is the result of a joint Dynamics and Lightweighting Study “DLS” with Williams Advanced Engineering. The owner wanted his to car to be the embodiment of dynamism through lightness philosophy, and Singer obliged him by conducting one of the most thorough engineering works they have ever done. For this project they brought together some of the best names in automotive business, including Michelin, Brembo, and BBS Motorsport, as well as automotive authority Chris Harris and former racing driver Marino Franchitti.

It’s no wonder, then, the end result is so brilliant. It’s not just that this Singer 911 looks amazing as a complete object. You can stripe it apart to its building blocks, and each one of those is also a work of art. That includes the mechanical parts. Look at the whole engine assembly in the photo below and tell me it doesn’t belong in a museum of modern art?

The Williams connection means this Singer 911 benefits from a 500 horsepower four-valve, four-camshaft, naturally aspirated, air-cooled flat-six engine. They have also designed the aerodynamics and suspension geometry, and brought the know-how in using lightweight material such as magnesium, titanium, carbon fibre and other advanced materials. The car also gets carbon composite Brembo Brakes, BBS magnesium wheels, Hewland magnesium, lightweight 6-speed transmission, and bespoke Michelin Cup2 tires.

Visually, the completely overhauled 964 is finished Absinthe, a bespoke color inspired by Porsche’s vintage green, and it’s complemented with interior leather in Blood Orange. We dare say this 911 is on the par, in terms of beauty and art and general exquisiteness, with something like the Pagani Huayra.

PostHeaderIcon Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World

Ford F-150

Determining the value of a car brand can be a tricky exercise. There are so many variables to consider that ultimately, the results may differ from one study or another. What we do know is that, at the very least, the cream always rises to the top. The standings may be different depending on who the author of the study is, but it’s pretty much the same automakers making up a majority of the list.

In this exercise, we’re taking a look at the ten most valuable car brands, at least through the eyes of Interbrand, an independent agency that specializes in determining the world’s most valuable brands. Obviously, such a task involves creating a specific set of formulas and calculations using a variety of available information, including a company’s financial forecast and then using it with its own in-house-developed “role of brand” and “brand strength” calculations. If it sounds complicated, it’s because it is, especially in the current automotive climate where buzz words like “electrification,” “ride-sharing,” and “autonomous driving technology” have staked bigger pieces of influence among automakers of all shapes and sizes.

Even then, there are also certain requirements that each automaker has to meet to be eligible to be included in the list. These requirements include having a sales presence on at least three continents and having a third of a company’s revenue coming from its home market. Ultimately, it all boils down to a lot of tech jargon that’s a little above my head. What I can tell you, though, is that the final list that Interbrand came up with is both expected and revealing. A few notable names made it in predictable spots while a few surprise inclusions definitely raised our eyebrows.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

10. Porsche


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 644852

Brand value: $10.13 billion

Top-selling model: Porsche 911

It seems crazy to think that at one point in the last 20 years, Porsche was a struggling automaker that somehow couldn’t get out of its own way. Things have definitely changed since then, and a big part of that is tied into the German automaker’s decision to enter a market that it previously shied away from. Taking a risk, Porsche ultimately decided to build the Cayenne SUV, and the rest is history. Today, Porsche cracks the top 10 list of “most valuable auto brands in the world” for good reason. It’s arguably one of the most beloved automakers in the world, and it’s rounded its model lineup to include a performance saloon known as the Panamera to go with a steady diet of sports cars led by the Porsche 911 Turbo.

9. Volkswagen


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 569578

Brand value: $11.52 billion

Top-selling model: Volkswagen Beetle

If you’re surprised that Volkswagen is so far down on this list, don’t be. This is Volkswagen the automaker, not the auto conglomerate that owns three brands on this list. On the bright side, VW actually posted improvements in terms of its brand value compared to last year. It’s incremental growth of just one percent, but it’s growth compared to 2016 when it actually posted a drop of one percent in value. Still, it could’ve been a lot better for Volkswagen had it not gotten itself mixed into the Dieselgate scandal. Look for a better year ahead for the German automaker when the calendar flips to 2018.

8. Nissan


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 656181

Brand value: $11.54 billion

Top-selling model: Nissan Sentra

If there was an automaker that earned its place in this ranking, it has to be Nissan. That’s not an indictment on the automaker’s past, but a celebration of what it has achieved in recent years. Between launching models that have been positively received and maintaining a level-headed approach in an industry that’s continues to evolve like this one, Nissan has turned in one growth year after another, culminating in a four-percent growth for this year that was good enough to land it in the top 10 list of most valuable car brands in the world.

7. Audi


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 635406

Brand value: $12.02 billion

Top-selling model: Audi A4

The Nissan of Europe, or is Nissan the Audi of Japan? Either way, the comparison fits because Audi always seems to be third fiddle in Europe to BMW and Mercedes-Benz, just like Nissan plays the same role in Japan to Toyota and Honda. That’s not a slight towards either Audi or Nissan because both companies have thrived doing their own thing. In Audi’s case, it has managed to build up a brand that’s worth $12.02 billion, becoming the most valuable auto brand under the Volkswagen Group. This year, Audi even posted a two-percent growth that probably should be bigger had it not been weighed down by Dieselgate. Still, look for Audi to remain competitive to BMW and Mercedes-Benz, as it always has been in recent years.

6. Hyundai


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 533707

Brand Value: $13.2 billion

Top-selling model: Hyundai Elantra

It says a lot about Hyundai’s growth as an automaker that it finds itself on this list with some of the most established brands in the auto industry. This wasn’t always the case though, as the Korean automaker’s surge up to mainstream popularity didn’t happen until the last decade. But, thanks to an aggressive push towards relevancy and the introduction of popular models like the Elantra, Tucson, and Santa Fe, Hyundai’s ascension up the ranks is looking less fluky and more of a result of hard work and dedication. Don’t even be surprised if, by next year, Hyundai finds itself in going up the ladder into a more prominent spot on this list. That’s the kind of outlook we’re now expecting from a company that already increased its value year-on-year by at least five percent.

5. Ford


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 700456

Brand value: $13.64 billion

Top-selling model: Ford F-Series Trucks

Ford is the only American automaker on this list. It is a little bit embarrassing to see what’s become of General Motors and Chrysler, but at least Ford is representing the US here to a certain extent. The good news for the Blue Oval is that it posted a five-percent increase in its own value and getting it up to $13.64 billion. The bad news is that a lot of the automakers its ahead of have as good a chance as any to move up the rankings for next year’s list at the expense of Ford. I personally don’t think that’s going to happen because of the company’s strong foothold in one of the world’s biggest markets, but then again, stranger things have happened so it’s not a certainty that the automaker will retain its spot in the rankings. It is worth pointing out though that of the ten auto brands that made it on this list, only Ford can boast of having a pickup truck as its top-selling model. That counts for a win, right?

4. Honda


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 651046

Brand value: $22.70 billion

Top-selling model: Honda Civic

Barring the unlikely event of seeing something catastrophic come out of Honda, it looks like a certainty that Honda’s going to retain its status as the fourth most valuable auto brand in the world for the next few years. That’s because it’s brand value of $22.70 billion is on an island by itself. Ford needs to almost double its value to be able to even sniff Honda’s, and conversely, the Japanese automaker needs to double its own value in order to come close to competing against the company that sits third on this list. Still, a value of $22.7 billion is nothing to sneeze at, especially when it comes as a result of a three-percent growth compared to its value from the previous year. The timeless popularity of the Honda Civic has a lot to do with Honda being where it is, but so does the continuing presence of its robust crossover and SUV lineup that’s led by the CR-V. Look for Honda to remain one of the most valuable auto brands in the world for all the reasons I just mentioned.

3. BMW


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 629375

Brand value: $41.62 billion

Top-selling model: BMW 3 Series

Well, that was a huge leap, wasn’t it? From Honda’s $22.7 billion in brand value, we move up to BMW’s, which has a brand value of $41.62 billion. This is the power of what BMW has to offer and the niche it has carved for itself – sportier than an Audi, less uptight than a Mercedes – tells you exactly how the German automaker has built up its own brand to become a force to be reckoned with it in the industry. It still has a few miles to go before it can catch up to its biggest rival, but rest assured, the blueprint towards long-term success and sustainability is being put to good use. For one, a plethora of new models with more advanced tech features are scheduled to be released soon to complement some of Bimmer’s most popular model lines. Imagine what kind of cache it can gain with the release of the BMW 8 Series? For all of its success, it is quite ironic that BMW finds itself in this enviable position despite minimal movement on its brand value.

2. Mercedes-Benz


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 536045

Brand value: $47.83 billion

Top-selling model: Mercedes C-Class

The king of German automakers finds itself in the second spot, trailing only the king of Japanese automakers. It should be said that Mercedes’ ascension up the ranks didn’t happen by luck or sheer happenstance. It comes as a result of record-breaking sales that helped pave the way for the company to enjoy its highest profits and revenue in its entire history. Add that to its ever-increasing global popularity and the introduction of affordable models like the CLA-Class, and it becomes clearer and clearer as to why Mercedes-Benz actually increased its brand value by a whopping 10% year-on-year. At the very least, it created a big separation with BMW’s own brand value, something I’m sure the fine folks over at Mercedes are more than happy to point out.

1. Toyota


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 509693

Brand value: $50.30

Best-selling model: Toyota Corolla

Sitting pretty at the number one spot is Toyota, a position it has held for a few years now on the back of being the biggest automaker in the world. Toyota’s dominance as a carmaker can be best seen in the fact that it still holds a pretty good lead over Mercedes-Benz despite seeing its value take a dip by six percent. That tells you that there’s room for Toyota to have a down year and still reign supreme as the most valuable auto brand in the world. I don’t see the company’s status get challenged for at least a few more years, but that loss in value could become more worrisome if it starts becoming a trend. For now, the auto world still kneels at the feet of Toyota, as do companies like Netflix, Facebook, McDonalds and Disney for that matter.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT2 Tests Top Speed On The Autobahn: Video

We love videos like this. They just feel right – Stuttgart’s performance superstar going flat-out on an unrestricted stretch of the autobahn? Yes, please! Assuming the starring role is a 991-era GT2 RS, which was introduced just a few months back rocking an incredible 700 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque thanks to a twin-turbo, 3.8-liter, flat-six powerplant hanging out back. Properly applied, Porsche says it’s enough motivation to push the German powerhouse to 211 mph. That’s blisteringly quick but, as evidenced by the above-featured 3-minute, 22-second video, the 911 GT2 RS might go much, much faster.

After some nice establishing shots showing a selection of 911s out on the track, plus a silver GT2 RS filling its tank at a gas station, the video moves to an angle of the gauge pod, where we watch the machine accelerate from a standstill. The driver engages launch control and takes off like a scalded cat, very quickly passing the ploddingly slow speed limits we must endure here in the U.S. The driver stays in it, maxing out the revs in every gear before eventually topping out at an incredible 356 kph (221.2 mph) as indicated by the onboard speedometer. Apparently, a separate GPS device recorded 342 kph (212.5 mph), which is still pretty damn quick, if you ask us. Either way, it’s impressive to watch as this track-bred piece of precision engineering is taken to the limit. There are even some ending glory shots of the GT2 RS paying its respects at Porsche headquarters.

2021 Porsche Mission E GTS

In case you hadn’t heard, let me be the first to tell you – Porsche is building a four-door all-electric sports sedan, and it’s called the Mission E. Don’t worry, it’ll have all the go-fast characteristics you’d expect, just without the internal combustion to make it go. In fact, it should draw a good deal of its tech from the hybrid goodness developed for the Panamera and 918 Spyder, so that’s a plus. But, as we all know, Porsche isn’t satisfied to make just a single version of any one model. Multiple variants are required to fill every niche possible, so what about an even-faster Mission E? We’re calling it the Mission E GTS, and we decided to draw up a rendering and put together a speculative review to boot. Upgrades over the standard Mission E should include more aggressive exterior styling, lots of black trim pieces, more performance gear inside, a bigger battery, extra horsepower, and standard performance suspension.

The EV performance market is looking to balloon pretty rapidly over the next few years, and you can bet your lithium-ion battery pack Porsche will be there to take advantage of that growth. Read on for the details.

Continue reading to learn more about the 2021 Porsche Mission E GTS.

Exterior

  • Larger aero than standard model
  • Blacked-out trim pieces
  • Lowered ride height

2021 Porsche Mission E GTS - image 743629
“The Porsche Mission E GTS will be a somewhat unique entry in the Porsche model lineup”

From the off, the Porsche Mission E GTS will be a somewhat unique entry in the Porsche model lineup. Of course, the traditional Stuttgart styling will be included, looking like an amalgamation of the 911, the 918 Spyder, and the Panamera. The nose will be rounded, curving downwards toward the pavement, with a wide and low stance to give it a definitively sporty flavoring. The hips will be broad, while the roofline will fall towards the truncated rear end at a gradual angle.

However, as is tradition for Porsche’s hotter GTS line, the Mission E GTS will get a few noticeable aesthetic changes to help it stand out from its standard, non-GTS siblings. Extra aggression will be the primary focus, with features like bigger wings, more prominent intakes, larger swoops, and similar details.

“As is tradition for Porsche’s hotter GTS line, the Mission E GTS will get a few noticeable aesthetic changes to help it stand out from its standard, non-GTS siblings.”

The front end will get the Mission E’s unique headlight design, which places the housings high on the fenders with a small teardrop shape framed by a prominent check mark crease. Lower horizontal daytime running lights emphasize the car’s width. LEDs will be the lighting element of choice.

Moving to the flanks, we find large wheels with a black finish, complementing the various blacked-out trim pieces, grilles, and mesh inserts that are so common on Porsche’s GTS models. The side sills get curvy ground effects that bring the car closer to the ground, a characterstic enhanced by the lowered ride height. The fenders will be broad to encapsulate the larger wheels.

In back, we’d expect to see a bigger diffuser element, once again in black, while above will be a larger wing for extra downforce. We’d also expect the wing to be adaptive, rising and falling to provide either more stick or less drag as the situation dictates.

Interior

  • Lots of Alcantara upholstery
  • Sporty seats
  • Steering wheel inspired by the 918 Spyder

2018 Porsche Panamera - image 701991

Note: Porsche Panamera GTS pictured here.

“We’re gonna go with the Panamera GTS as a reference, and we would expect a similar layout and similar upgrades applied to the Mission E GTS.”

While we have yet to actually see the interior of the Porsche Mission E, there’s still a few predictions we could make about a possible GTS version at this early point. First off, we’re gonna go with the Panamera GTS as a reference, and we would expect a similar layout and similar upgrades applied to the Mission E GTS.

For starters, the dash will likely incorporate a broad, horizontal design, with lots of wide lines that add a sense of space. The seating arrangement will include space for up to five passengers, with two up front and three in the rear, plus a little space in the trunk to haul around a suitcase or two. The steering wheel will draw inspiration from the 918 Spyder in terms of design, while digital screens will be used for user inputs and data relays.

“Upgrades for the GTS model will include even sportier seats, with larger side bolsters to keep passengers in place while cornering, plus Alcantara upholstery.”

Upgrades for the GTS model will include even sportier seats, with larger side bolsters to keep passengers in place while cornering. Alcantara upholstery will be the material of choice, and should be added to the seatbacks, the side panels, the doors, and just about anything else Porsche can manage. Finally, brushed aluminum and carbon fiber trim will add that extra bit of gloss.

Drivetrain

  • Four electric motors, AWD
  • Up to 350 miles per charge
  • More power – up to 650 ponies
  • 0-to-60 mph in 3 seconds flat

2015 Porsche Mission E Concept - image 736441
“The Mission E GTS will be all-electric, routing motivation to the ground by way of four individual permanent synchronous electric motors”

Like the standard Porsche Mission E, the Mission E GTS will be all-electric, routing motivation to the ground by way of four individual permanent synchronous electric motors, essentially making it AWD. There will also be multiple drive modes, from eco energy saving to maximum attack sport.

The GTS could enhance this with a special sport mode that throws caution (and range anxiety) to the wind for even greater acceleration. Luckily, the Mission E GTS would also likely get a bigger battery pack, offering both greater range per charge and more horsepower as a result. Once again placed under the floor, the larger lithium-ion pack would provide upwards of 350 miles per charge, a substantial increase compared to the standard Mission E’s 300 or so miles per charge. And, if Porsche delivers on its promise, charge times should be pretty quick thanks to the brand’s forthcoming proprietary 800-volt charging system.

“The Mission E GTS would likely get a bigger battery pack, offering both greater range per charge and more horsepower as a result. We’re thinking 650 ponies total.”

But here’s the important bit – we would expect more power from the GTS, up to roughly 650 ponies compared to the standard model’s 600 horsepower. That would make it quicker, and when placed in its sportiest mode, the 0-to-60 mph time should drop to around 3 seconds flat compared to the standard model’s 3.5-second sprint.

Chassis And Handling

  • Standard adaptive suspension
  • Less weight
  • Faster Nurburgring lap time

2021 Porsche Mission E GTS - image 743629
“The Mission E GTS will utilize a unique chassis made specifically for all-electric applications”

Under those freshened body panels, the Mission E GTS will utilize a unique chassis made specifically for all-electric applications. The platform should provide just the right stuff to make the car enjoyable in the corners, while also taking advantage of the all-electric’s benefits and minimizing its drawbacks.

Unique to the GTS model will be additional sporting elements for the suspension, including standard active components for greater performance in the corners. We’d also expect to see a more advanced torque vectoring system, not to mention four-wheel steering as well.

“Unique to the GTS model will be additional sporting elements for the suspension, including standard active components for greater performance in the corners.”

Extra exotic materials, such as additional carbon fiber and titanium, should also be used, cutting out a few pounds here and there. Nothing major – just enough to maximize the newfound power gains and aggressive suspension.

All told, the GTS will be measured in terms of how it performs on the track. The Nurburgring is the place where these things get the full shakedown – perhaps a time of 7 minutes, 45 seconds could justify the extra outlay.

Prices


2021 Porsche Mission E GTS - image 743631

With the Mission E expected to start at $85,000, a GTS version would likely put the bottom line at well over $100,000. However, if Porsche offers a stopgap between the base model Mission E and GTS model, such as an S iteration at $100,000, a price tag of $120,000 for the GTS would make a lot of sense.

Competition

Tesla Model S P100D


Tesla Model S Gets Upgraded Battery Pack; Now as Fast as LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder - image 686181

If you want a fast four-door EV, Tesla is pretty much the standard these days. Sitting at the top of the heap is the P100D, an AWD crusher of 0-to-60 mph times that manages to complete the benchmark in just 2.3 seconds. That’s seriously quick, and would likely trounce the Mission E GTS. But here’s the thing – Porsche is more concerned with handling than Tesla, and given a proper race track, the Tesla would likely fall short. Same goes for the interior appointment, where Stuttgart once again has the upper hand. However, if balls-out acceleration is all you care about, Tesla is the way to go.

Conclusion


2020 Porsche Mission E - image 740943

Note: Porsche Mission E test mule pictured here.

While at first glance it might seem absurd to render up a hot-to-trot iteration of a car Porsche hasn’t even released yet, there’s a method to our madness. In case you hadn’t noticed, Porsche absolutely loves offering a wide spectrum of performance versions for their most popular vehicles. Indeed, no stone is left unturned in the quest to satisfy speed enthusiasts, and there’s no reason the same formula won’t be applied to the Mission E.

In fact, it’s practically required when looking at the current EV market. Tesla is obviously one of the biggest names here, and with a variety of model variants on offer for more speed, more range, and more bragging rights, Porsche can’t ignore the obvious.

  • Leave it
    • Might be very pricey
    • Base Mission E will need to see success before a GTS model is a thing
    • What will the EV performance market look like in 2021?
