With the new Porsche 911 GT3 out of the bag and the online configurator alive and kicking, Porsche is gearing up for customer orders. It will take some time before we know how many new GT3s Porsche managed to push or whether they were configured with a manual or the PDK dual-clutch gearbox.
However, if we look back at how many customers ordered their previous-gen 911 GT3 with a manual, it’s expected that the manual option on the 992 GTE will get the same attention.

If You Care About Your Tesla’s Warranty, Don’t Use It to Power Your Home
The winter storm wasn’t been kind to the Texans with basic services like power and water taking a big hit. A lot of good Samaritans have come to the rescue, including Ford, who had asked the dealerships to loan out the F-150 trucks with Pro Power onboard generators to people without power at home. In such dire situations, one would assume that using EVs as a stationary power source would also be a good idea, but as it turns out, it’s not the case with Tesla.
As pointed out by ‘Green’ on Twitter, using your Tesla as a power generator will void its warranty. If you already have, well, don’t talk about it on social media.
This Lamborghini Huracan Rendering Has Tons of Terzo Millennio DNA
The Lamborghini Huracan was an impressive machine and after five years on the market, Lamborghini introduced an even stronger model that was more aggressive and lugged around the EVO name. The Huracan EVO was powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 that delivered a cool 631 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque – enough for a 2.9-second sprint to 60 mph and a top speed of 202 mph. Right in the middle between the Huracan’s launch and the launch of the EVO, Lamborghini showed off the Terzo Millennio concept, a four-motor electric hypercar that wasn’t only futuristically aggressive and what could only be estimated as upward of 1,500 horsepower and unthinkable amounts of torque. So what if, in an alternate universe, Lamborghini had based the Huracan EVO on the 2017 Terzo Concept? Well, now we have an answer.

This begs the question, can the best-seller of the Czech brand still be at the top of its game?
This Recreation of The Top Gun Maverick Trailer With Legos Is Just Too Cool
U.S. brick filmmaker Augustus Danko is such a big fan of LEGOs and the Top Gun movie that he decided to marry his two loves and create an incredible fan-made trailer of the upcoming blockbuster movie using only LEGO bricks. The two-and-a-half-minute trailer faithfully recreates the first Top Gun: Maverick trailer starring Tom Cruise right down to the smallest of details. The trailer took five months to complete and it features 3,240 frames. Danko even enlisted the help of other LEGO builders and animators to help bring his project to life. After all that work, this LEGO trailer of the new Top Gun movie looks every bit as incredible as the real one.
If The Renault Espace Looked Like This, You’d Definitely Want One
A digital artist has created a modernized rendering of the Renault Espace F1, and it’s got us itching for one. The rendering is based on the concept model that Renault unveiled at the 1994 Paris Motor Show to celebrate the nameplate’s 10th anniversary and the French automaker’s involvement in Formula One. Nothing came out of the Espace F1, but 27 years later, it’s still fondly remembered as one of the gnarliest minivan concept vehicles ever showcased at an auto show.
Alfa Romeo Is Plotting a Larger-Than-Giulia 5 Series Competitor
Big Alfa Romeo Sports sedans don’t really exist today, with the last important model that comes to mind being the 166 that was produced between 1996 and 2007. But, what if Alfa Romeo, now under the leadership of Stellantis, decided it wanted to forget about the SUV segment for a moment and compete with the likes of the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes E-Class, and even the Audi A6 or Maserati Ghibli? Well, believe it or not, an uncited report is claiming this could very well happen, and it could happen sooner than you’d expect.
2021 Apocalypse Hellfire 6x6
There’s no way 6x6 trucks can sneak away without catching any attention. There are quite a few aftermarket 6x6 creations like the VelociRaptor and the Mammoth by Hennessey, Gladiator by So-Flo, and some 6x6s that are built from the scratch, like the Rezvani Hercules. While Rezvani may have taken a different approach, a company called Apocalypse Manufacturing has developed a 6x6 based on the Jeep Gladiator called the Hellfire. Apart from the six-wheel-drive layout, it comes with massive tires, an active suspension system, and a cabin filled with modern tech features. The asking price for this beast runs into six digits.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport

There are tens of exterior and interior color options, and an insane amount of engine options, too. The automaker has introduced a new SVR Carbon Edition that one-ups the standard SVR. It comes with the most powerful V-8 seen in a Land Rover to date. But, does it have enough for people to choose it over the Audis and BMWs?
