The carmaker already teased its future plans with the e-Evolution concept last year (pictured above), again combining a previously successful Mitsubishi nameplate with new crossover intentions. Now, talking to AutoExpress, Mitsubishi’s chief operating officer and chief...Continue reading »

The rumors were true. The new 911 GT3 RS just ran a bonkers 6:56.4 at the Nurburgring Nordschliefe with factory driver Kevin Estre at the wheel, beating the mighty 918 Spyder. For additional context, that’s 24 seconds quicker than the previous GT3 RS and over 16 seconds quicker than the new GT3. That also makes the GT3 RS the third quickest road car to ever lap the Nordschleife, behind just the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and the 911 GT2 RS. This time is also way quicker than anyone at Porsche expected. When we first saw the...Continue reading »

Andreas Preuninger, the head of Porsche’s GT division, owns a 2012 Ram 1500 long-box. He mostly uses it to haul his motorcycles. It apparently won’t fit in his parking spot at work. It’s a far cry from the lightweight, track-focused 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS that was revealed this month at the Geneva Motor Show, though both vehicles were built for a specific purpose. Porsche followed the GT3 RS reveal in Geneva with the reveal of the Weissach Package at the 2018 New York Auto Show. The latter is an $18,000 weight-loss...Continue reading »
