This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess
The first automobile was invented in 1886 and since then many great cars have emerged. But even nearly 140 years after the automobile’s invention, there are very few cars that have a cult following as zealous as that of the Porsche 911. This is especially true for the air-cooled models, which are all-time classics. If we combine the significance of an air-cooled 911 with the cocaine-snorting excess of the 1970s, we can see how a one-off 1979, guards red, modified Porsche 911 Turbo can be listed for $599,000 by a Florida dealership.

Drag Race: How Much Quicker Is A Porsche 911 GT3 Than A 911 Carrera?
Our UK colleagues from Carwow have come up with another interesting drag race. This time, two versions of the Porsche 992 go head to head. You can probably tell, which of the two is going to win since we are talking about a base Porsche 911 Carrera and a 911 GT3. Racetrack performance aside, the question here is how much quicker the GT3 is, and will it be able to justify the enormous price difference?

Ram Comes Up With A New TRX ’Ignition’ Edition Along With A Couple Of Special Editions For The 1500
Ram has been quite active with facelifts, new trims, and special editions lately. It wasn’t too long ago when the company came out with G/T-spec models for the 1500 Laramie and Rebel trims and the 10th Anniversary Edition for the 1500 Limited trim. Not to mention, there were the ‘Built to Serve’ Edition 1500s that came out in five phases, with the latest one coming out earlier this year.
Now, the Ram introduced three new special edition trucks at the ongoing State Fair of Texas. One of the three is based on the Ram 1500 TRX and it is a homecoming of sorts for the truck as the automaker unveiled the TRX Concept five years back at the same event. The other two special editions are based on the Longhorn and the Limited trims. The changes on all three are purely aesthetic and come with no upgrades or updates under the hood.

2022 Caterham Seven 170
When Caterham launched the Seven 160 back in 2013 everyone was impressed by its weight: 490 kilos (or about 1,080 pounds). Even if it only delivered 80 horsepower, its power-to-weight ratio was set at 163 bhp per ton. When you think that back in 2013 cars like Hennessey Venom GT had a power-to-weight ratio of about 1230 bhp-per-tone, the 160 may not look that impressive. But, for a tiny car, it was more than enough.
Now Caterham came with an even lighter successor for the 160. The new Seven 170 weighs only 440 kilos (970 pounds) and has a power-to-weight ratio in excess of 170 bhp-per-ton!
2022 Honda Passport TrailSport
Back in July, 2021 Honda trademarked a new name: "TrailSport" - and everyone was asking what is the name going to be applied to. After that, at the beginning of September, 2021, we got a first teaser that revealed the answer: the TrailSport was going to be a sub-brand that will be mostly applied for SUVs and trucks. Its purpose? To "bring a more rugged design and off-road capability."
And now, we have the first look at the first model to get the TrailSport treatment: the Passport. It will go on sale in the winter of 2021 and will be "even more emotional and adventurous, further advancing Honda’s new rugged design direction for light truck lineup."
