If you’ve ever thought about getting your kids into cars with a miniature motorized vehicle, you’ve probably considered one of the many battery-powered ride-ons from a big-box store. However, for those who can afford it, there is currently another, very unique option, and it comes in the form of a half-scale gas-powered Porsche 911.

Listed for sale on Elferspot, this Porsche-kart features an 83 cc Honda engine that produces 2.15 hp (2.18 PS / 1.6 kW). On top of that, it has a functional manual transmission with two forward gears and reverse. Top speed is a safe 25 km/h (15 mph), and the ad mentions it can be adjusted, although it’s not clear if they mean faster or slower.

The go-kart was actually produced by Porsche themselves, and only 224 were ever made. Back in 1983 when it was new, the aptly-named Porsche 911 Cabriolet Junior retailed for the equivalent of $4,500 US dollars. However, if you were looking to get your hands on this collectible now, it will set you back an eye-watering €14,900 ($17,810 USD). That kind of money can buy you a full-sized Porsche, like a used first-gen Boxster.

The “car” is finished in red and includes iconic features as the Fuchs wheels and whale tail spoiler. It has only covered 10 km since 1983, so rest assured this mini Porsche is in good condition. Everything from the bodywork, to the interior, to the engine bay appears to be in nearly perfect shape.

Overall, while a really cool collectible, this Porsche go-kart is still expensive. However, should you actually buy it, you’d be able to boast that you technically own a vintage, single-seat, manual, Honda-powered Porsche 911, and that’s something not many can claim.

Toyota will use the Shanghai Motor Show to “preview” its mid-sized electric crossover.

The company was coy on specifics, but that seems to suggest the company will introduce a concept at the event which kicks off on April 19th.

Originally teased last year, the model will ride on the new e-TNGA platform which is “highly versatile” and can be used on vehicles with varying lengths, widths, wheelbases and heights. The architecture can also support front-, rear- and all-wheel drive setups as well as a “wide-range of battery and electric motor capacities.” The company has also said the platform will enable them to create vehicles that are “not just battery-electric, but also exciting to drive and beautiful to look at.”

Toyota has previously said the model will be about the same size as the RAV4 and it’s possible the vehicle is the X Prologue. That remains unconfirmed, but there are some vague similarities between today’s teaser image and the picture of the X Prologue. Of course, it’s hard to be certain as the latest teaser simply shows a crossover under a sheet and Toyota is working on at least six different EVs.

Regardless, the X Prologue will be introduced on March 17th at 4:00 a.m. ET (10:00 a.m. CET). That’s nearly a month before the Shanghai Motor Show, but it’s not usual to see vehicles introduced before their auto show debut.

BMW introduced the i4 concept a little over a year ago and it now appears the production model will be unveiled on March 17th.

Details are limited, but BMW Blog is reporting the date was confirmed by officials during a recent conference call. This isn’t too surprising as the company hinted a debut was imminent as they tweeted “i foursee a new age coming” over the weekend.

While BMW is keeping tight-lipped on specifics, spy photographers have caught the model on numerous occasions. It closely resembles the 4-Series Gran Coupe, but features a unique front end with a fully enclosed grille. The model also eschews a dual exhaust system for a split diffuser.

In 2019, BMW revealed plans for a high-performance variant that produces around 523 hp (390 kW / 530 PS) and can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in approximately four seconds flat. The company also confirmed the model will have a roughly 80 kWh battery pack that enables the car to travel around 373 miles (600 km) in the WLTP cycle.

Thanks to a DC fast charging capacity of up to 150 kW, owners will be able to get an 80% charge in around 35 minutes. Even a six minute charge should be good enough to get you around 62 miles (100 km) of range.

Additional variants are expected and rumors have suggested there will be an entry-level i4 with approximately 280 hp (209 kW / 284 PS). It might be joined by a mid-level version with around 330 hp (246 kW / 335 PS).
