New Porsche 963 Comes to Rattle Ferrari And Lamborghini

The 963 is Porsche’s latest LMDh track weapon

The 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed saw the debut of a lot of cool road-going cars, but the one we are going to talk about here is a little bit different. At the same event that brought us cars like the Polestar 5 electric 4-door GT or the Lanzante P1 Spider, Porsche unveiled its new 963 LMDh prototype race car. The prototype is set to make its race debut in 2023 at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona where it will face fierce competition from Ferrari and Lamborghini.

Ken Block's 1,400-HP Vintage Porsche 911 Pikes Peak Racer is Ridiculously Awesome

Ken Block’s 1,400-HP Vintage Porsche 911 Pikes Peak Racer is Ridiculously Awesome

The 1,400-HP classic Porsche 911 is the most extreme Hoonigan build yet, and Ken Block will drive it at this year’s Pikes Peak event

Hoonigan has built some insane stuff, but the most extreme builds have to be the ones done with Ken Block. You are probably familiar with the 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn, and the more recent Audi S1 Hoonitron, which is an obvious throwback to the original S1 Quattro from the 1980s. While the latter was designed and built in Ingolstadt, Hoonigan has decided to one-up Ken’s current ride, by building an unholy Pikes Peak creation based on a 1970s Porsche 911.

This 718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance Offers the Same Performance as a 911 GT3 Cup

The Porsche Mission R morphs into the718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance just in time for GFOS

The future is electric, there is no doubt about that, and if the 911 will remain gas-powered for a little longer, things will be different for the entire 718 lineup. Porsche announced that as of 2025 both the 718 Cayman and Boxster will be replaced by an electric sports car. This will be the third electric car in Porsche’s lineup, next to the Taycan and the upcoming Macan EV.

A first glimpse at what the electric sports car could look like was offered back in 2021 when Porsche unveiled the Mission R Concept at the 2021 IAA Mobility show. Designed as a race car, the Mission R Concept has evolved even further, and it has now become the 718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance – a running prototype that will celebrate its premiere at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from June 23-26, 2022.

Drag Race: Ferrari 488 Pista vs Lamborghini Huracan STO vs Porsche 911 GT3

The three stalwarts came together on the drag strip for a boring race… yeah, you read that right!

Mat Watson from ‘Carwow’ is back with yet another drag race involving three supercars that have loyal fan bases of their own. But, no matter how desirable, this race is a tad bit stale. We had the same results with whatever kind of race that happened. Now, it’s not necessary that every race has to tug our heartstrings or give us the adrenaline rush, right? But, then why did we cover it? Well, the cars are eye candies and sound amazing. That’s it!
