As the Porsche 911 has developed over the decades, it has become bigger and heavier, and now features more technology than ever before. However, if you prefer your sports cars smaller and simpler, this 1967 911 S Coupe could be a better buy than a brand new one.

This particular 911 S Coupe on Bring A Trailer was first purchased in Germany by an American serviceman who imported it to the U.S. in 1974. It spent its early years in Texas and in the 1990s underwent a comprehensive refurbishment to return it to its original condition. Now looking as good as new, the sports car is being sold with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a German registration card from 1967, and a clean California title.

The listing for the car shows that it is finished in Bahama Yellow and includes front fog lights, yellow-tinted headlights, 15×4.5-inch Fuchs alloy wheels and Continental Eco Plus tires measuring 185/65 at all four corners.

Inside, the 911 S Coupe has been reupholstered with black leatherette with Pepita cloth inserts, charcoal carpeting, and an ivory headliner. There is a special Recaro sport seat for the driver, as well as a Webasto heater, vent windows, a leather-rimmed four-spoke steering wheel and a Blaupunkt radio. The odometer reads 33,000 miles but the car’s true mileage is unknown.

Power is provided by a 2.0-liter flat-six that has been rebuilt and is equipped with an aluminum crankcase and dual Weber downdraft carburetors. A five-speed manual transaxle drives the rear wheels. The car has also been fitted with new ventilated disc brakes, Koni shock absorbers, and a rear anti-roll bar.

A month after announcing that it will invest $75 Million in their Toledo transmission facility, General Motors has revealed that it will make a further investment of $100 million in two other plants.

The plants in question, Romulus, Michigan, and Bedford, Indiana, will receive $93 million and $7 million, respectively. Like the Toledo investment, the cash injection to these plants is to boost production of General Motor’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

General Motors, who are also investing heavily in their EV future, says the decision has been taken to increase the availability of the trucks that use the transmission, including the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.

Just weeks ago, demand for the Silverado and Sierra was also cited as the reason for the investment in the Toledo, Ohio plant. In 2020 General Motors also made the decision to pump in a separate $39 million to the same plant in order to increase production of its eight-speed, rear-wheel-drive transmission.

In addition to 10-speed transmissions, the Romulus facility currently builds V6 engines for Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles. The $93 million investment will add machining capability to the plant.

Meanwhile, the Bedford, Indiana casting operation will receive $7 million aimed at increasing its die casting capacity. The plant is one of the world’s leading aluminum die casting facilities and is responsible for transmission casings and converter housings.

“Demand for our Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickups continues to be very strong,” said Phil Kienle, GM vice president, North America Manufacturing and Labor Relations. “We appreciate the commitment and hard work our teams display every day at work in Romulus and Bedford, and these investments reflect the importance of their efforts.”

The Mercedes-AMG A 45 S is the king of hot hatches when it comes to sheer acceleration, but can the BMW M2 CS and Alpine A110 S challenge it in a straight line?

Granted, the Alpine is a sports car and not a hot hatch. It is also grossly underpowered compared to the other two, but it does put up a good fight during the race.

First, the figures. Powering the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that pumps out 421 hp. Moreover, the hyper hatch is all-wheel drive. By comparison, the BMW M2 CS is the most powerful of the trio thanks to its 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six that’s good for 444 hp and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque. It can be optioned with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch but, unlike the A 45 S, it is rear-wheel drive.

Last but not least is the Alpine A110 S. It is powered by a compact 1.8-liter four-cylinder producing 292 hp and is also rear-wheel drive. It may be down on power but it is also the lightest of the three, weighing in at just 1,114 kg.

The race was held in cold conditions and, unsurprisingly, it was the Mercedes that had the advantage off the line, quickly accelerating into a lead. Meanwhile, the Alpine got the better of the BMW as the driver of the M2 CS struggled to put all of its power to the ground. As the speeds started to increase, the BMW was able to claw back the A110 S and cross the finish line ahead of it but it couldn’t catch the Mercedes, ultimately finishing 0.1 seconds behind it across the 1,000 m (0.6-mile) drag race.
