Porsche's New Partnership with PUMA is all the Sneaker Hype You Need on a Monday

Porsche’s New Partnership with PUMA is all the Sneaker Hype You Need on a Monday

Don’t expect all 500 pairs of this sneaker collection to last long

The Porsche 911 Turbo is arguably one of the most iconic cars in history. A car of that stature doesn’t just stay a car; its name lives on in other ways like, say, a limited-edition sneaker line that comes courtesy of Porsche’s partnership with sports apparel company PUMA.

The two German brands are teaming up to create this line of special edition shoes to celebrate the legend of the 911 Turbo. Only 500 pairs of shoes will be created across the entire size range, and if you’re looking to score a pair, you best be quick about it. The range will launch on November 17, 2020, and if it’s as hyped as we think it is, those 500 pairs will be gone faster than the 992-generation 911 Turbo can hit a quarter-mile. That’s 10.1 seconds at 137 mph, by the way.

There's No Outrunning Nostalgia With This Sit-Down Arcade Cabinet

There’s No Outrunning Nostalgia With This Sit-Down Arcade Cabinet

It’ll only take one sitting to get make you remember the golden age arcade video games

Back in the 1980s when every kid could be spotted in an arcade parlor during weekends, Sega’s OutRun was one of the most popular go-to machines. Whether it was the stand-up cabinet versions of the more elaborate sit-down versions, OutRun had plenty of fans.

That’s important to note because while arcade parlors are no longer around, the game is making a comeback courtesy of Arcade1Up. The direct-to-consumer arcade builder is offering a limited number of OutRun sit-down arcade cabinets — in all their 8-bit glory — that you can order for just $499. We don’t need to tell you that it’s a great Christmas gift for your beloved, especially if he/she grew up chugging cans of Tab, using hair spray on their hair, and running through a piggy bank’s worth of quarters in these arcade parlors.

You Have to Check Out The Ninebot Electric Gokart on Indiegogo

You Have to Check Out The Ninebot Electric Gokart on Indiegogo

Less than 1,000 left up for grabs if you want one

Go-karts seem to have remained unchanged for years and the same applies to those so-called leisure karts you can rent and turn a few laps in at your local kart-o-drome. That’s why the Ninebot Gokart PRO developed by Segway feels like a breath of fresh air.

With a range of 15.5 miles on one battery charge, an output of up to 4,800 W (6.43 horsepower) and 70.8 pound-feet of torque, and a top speed of up to 23 mph with drift mode included the Gokart PRO is a massive evolution over the company’s Go-Kart Kit with Mini PRO that we’ve seen before. The good news is that enough people have backed this project for it to make it into production but no more than about 1,000 units will be made.

Aston Martin Finally Has an Electric Car And It’s Crazy Cute

Introducing the DB5 Junior - Aston Martin’s Newest Electric Model

Aston Martin just introduced an all-electric version of the DB5. Wait; what? Wasn’t the DB5 discontinued back in 1965? Yes, it was, although the company built an additional 25 chassis in 2020, but this EV is not an authentic DB5. It’s a two-thirds scale version of the iconic grand tourer. It’s called the DB5 Junior to reflect its smaller scale, and it’s being built in cooperation with The Little Car Company.

This McLaren Senna Electric Car Is the Best Way To Introduce Your Little One to the World of Cars

This McLaren Senna Electric Car Is the Best Way To Introduce Your Little One to the World of Cars

Every detail on this watered-down version of the Senna is faithful to the original, minus the price tag

The Senna is McLaren’s latest and, arguably, most extreme hypercar, a 789-horsepower track-focused machine befitting of McLaren’s Ultimate Series of models that includes the P1 and the F1. At almost $1 million a pop, it was also one of McLaren’s most expensive models when introduced two years ago but that didn’t stop the 500-unit production run to sell out within days.

Fear not, however, as we have an alternative for you Senna-lovers out there that doesn’t even cost $1,000, not even $500 and, better yet, is just big enough for your kid to enjoy. Just beware of the day when your kid outgrows this scaled-down Senna and asks for the real thing.
