A rare Porsche Carrera GT that’s been modified and turned into a track-day weapon is currently up for sale in Germany.

This Carrera GT was delivered new to Belgium in 2005. Soon after, it was sent to GPR Racing where it was fitted with a host of upgrades designed to improve its racetrack credentials. These upgrades cost a cool €220,000 (~$270,000).

Key upgrades include bespoke wishbones and pushrods, a new AP Racing braking system, an integrated air lift system, a high-performance clutch, a safety cage, BBS magnesium wheels, an automatic fire extinguishing system, and a fuel system that meets motorsport specifications. The car also includes a Motec control unit.

According to the listing at Mechatronik, the owner intended on racing the car in the World Endurance Championship but regulation changes prevented him from doing so. With no chance of competing, it was parked in the owner’s collection where it has been collecting dust ever since.

The tweaked 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine pumps out 650 hp and the car likely drives just as well as it did new because it has just 1,243 miles (2,000 km) on the odometer.

Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t come cheap. In fact, it has an asking price of €849,000 ($1.04 million), but when you consider that many standard Carrera GTs are fetching over $1 million, it doesn’t sound like such a bad deal after all.

Hot lap videos tend not to be this quiet. That’s understandable as, unlike other Porsches, the Taycan has no ICE howling away.

There aren’t a lot of cars that require the undivided attention of someone like Fifth Gear’s Jason Plato, who’s been competing in the British Touring Car Championship for 23 years and has clinched two titles. However, the Taycan is one of them simply because it’s very fast. Or, as Plato exclaims, “Christ almighty!”

The particular Taycan is a Turbo S, which makes up to 750 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque and gets to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds thanks to a two-speed transmission.

And despite the weight of the batteries, Plato reports that it really does handle. Although he reports a little bit of understeer mid-corner in the fast bends, he still posts a lap time that’s four seconds faster than the GR Yaris, despite this being a small track.

“I’ve got to tell you, the performance is off the scale,” says Plato. “It’s just so rapid! Yes, you can feel it’s two-and-a-half tonnes – I’ve never been a fan of electric cars – but do you know what? I’m changing my mind. I think it’s great.”

He does worry, however, that driving it the way he does, the range will be severely hampered. He concludes then, that despite the performance being there, he might wait for the second generation.

If you don’t want to wait, though, it’ll be comforting to know that European fast chargers can get the Taycan’s battery charge from 5 to 80 percent in just 22 minutes.

隨著 Subaru 主力休旅 Forester 小改款的偽裝車,已在路上被外媒捕獲,距離上市的時間也已倒數計時。外媒也從偽裝車的樣貌,繪製出外型可能的樣貌,但,怎麼看起來跟小改款前差異不大?

2018 年發表的第五代 Forester,來到小改款的時間點。由俄羅斯媒體《kolesa》所繪製的 Forester 小改款預測樣貌,沒有太大幅度的改變,比較屬於小幅度的修改,像是兩側霧燈的氣壩的調整,水箱護罩的微調,以及車頭廠徽略為下移的規劃。

車側的改變更輕微,如果維持原狀也不會太奇怪。至於車尾部分改變也不大,排氣管將設計成為隱藏式,讓車尾下方保桿得以維持平整的完整性。《kolesa》並無針對車內繪製預測樣貌照,不過中控預料會會上大型螢幕,提升操作便利性,另外在車內飾板的材質應也會做更換。

動力規劃上,在不同地區有不同的配置,2.5 升四缸自然進氣引擎應仍會採用,不過也傳出 2.4 升渦輪及 1.8 升渦輪會是小改款時的全新動力。
