2021 The Porsche 911 Cabriolet-based Techart GTstreet R Cabriolet Is Drop-Dead Gorgeous!

The kit offers a ton of carbon fiber exterior components and performance upgrades for the 911 Turbo- and Turbo S Cabriolet

Techart’s package for the 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S was one of the best ones we’ve seen for the car so far. It was a perfect mix of aesthetic and performance upgrades. Now, the tuner has come up with a kit for the 911 Turbo Cabriolet. The GTstreet R Cabriolet follows the same philosophy as the package for the standard turbo – make it even more aesthetically pleasing and pump up the power to make you go ‘Wow!’.

The Electric Porsche 911 Might Look Wildly Different

The Electric Porsche 911 Might Look Wildly Different

EV tech gives designers more freedom, so what does that mean for the most iconic car of them all?

Electric sports cars aren’t exactly a thing yet. Sure, you’ve got the currently non-existent Tesla Roadster 2.0 and plenty of hypercars, but the closest we have to a genuine sports car is the Tesla Model S Plaid or the Porsche Taycan. Transitioning the everyday family car or even SUVs to all-electric drive is easy enough – relatively speaking – but when it comes to sports cars, things like weight and driving dynamics are just as important as power. Having too much of one and not enough of the other isn’t an acceptable compromise, and this is why we don’t have an Electric Porsche 911. Eventually, however, it’ll be possible, and when it is, the freedom that comes with EV tech could drastically change the iconic 911 forever.

The Porsche 718 Cayman EV Won’t Lose That Mid-Engine Driving Dynamic

Porsche is, quite literally, setting the standard for electric sports cars

When Porsche revealed the electric Mission R Concept, it was billed as a preview of a one-maker racer, but it also previewed – to a small extent – what we can expect from the upcoming electric Porsche 718. In fact, the Mission R Concept was based on a highly modified version of the current 718’s chassis and even featured similar dimensions to the current road-going sports cars. And it’s because of this car that the next-gen electric 718 Cayman and Boxster will set the standard for how a modern sports car can transition into electrification without losing what matters the most – its driving dynamic.

Porsche is hard at work on the more track-focused Porsche 911 GT3 RS (992)

With the “regular” 911 (992) GT3 out and official, all eyes are now headed towards the GT3 RS.

The most important thing is that the latest most track-focused normally-aspirated 911 is underway, and here’s what we can expect.

Updated 09/24/2021: The upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 RS was caught testing again, this time on the roads around the Nürburgring as well as on the track. Check out the story for new details on the future sports car!

It’s currently listed for sale on Mechatronik for an undisclosed price, but is It truly authentic?

A Porsche 911 Turbo Gives The BMW M5 CS A Taste Of Its Own Medicine On The Drag Strip

The BMW M5 CS is a bully on the drag strip, but it fell flat against a Porsche 911 Turbo
