There's nothing like being one of a few to get behind the wheel of the all-new 2011 Porsche Carrera GTS, especially in Palm Springs, Cali! For this special moment Porsche brought in Joerg Bergmeister -- 5-time American LeMans Series' champion -- for the unveil and a test run in the Porsche Carrera GTS. Here, he stacks the 408-horsepower GTS against his own 911 Carrera S and Flying Lizard 911 GT3 RSR. Thoughts?
Porsche's 12 Hours of Sebring
The 2010 12 Hours of Sebring marks the 50th anniversary of Hans Herrmann's
victory at the legendary event in his 1960 Porsche RS 60. This year, the
pair of Flying Lizard Porsche GT3 RSRs are on hand to defend their 2009
championship title. Jörg Bergmeister and Patrick Long, both Porsche
factory drivers, discuss what it's like to race at Sebring and to be part
the Porsche driver legacy. It was a close battle in GT2 last year between
the Lizards and Corvette Racing, making this year all that more important.
Also on hand for this year's race is Hans Herrmann, the first Porsche
driver to win the Overall victory at Le Mans. Hans talks with Patrick and
Jörg while at Sebring about the changes in the racetrack over the past 50
years and how motorsports as a whole has changed.
2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder
Eternal bonds, layers and rings of nature evoke timeless perfection in the
intricate systems that comprise the symbiotic relationship between man and
machine. Well the four rings of Audi represent such a thesis and have led
to the manifestation of their first open top super car. The magnificence of
the V10 engine puts the R8 V10 Spyder in the same conversation with Porsche
911 turbo, Aston Martin Vantage V12 and
Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG. After all, Audi has dominated the 24 Hours of Le
Mans this decade, so why not bring that winning spirit to public roads?
2011 WRX STI Sets Speed Record
At Subaru, the phrase "The Fastest WRX STI Ever" refers to more than just
top speed or maximum engine output. It implies driving with confidence. The
WRX STI can be taken to its "fastest ever" performance by providing the
driver with total driving control with confidence. As a result, the 2011
WRX STI recorded 7'55''00 at the Nürburgring racetrack, Subaru's fastest
lap time ever, which is 4 seconds faster than the previous fastest time
recorded in 2004.
Lotus Esprit Supercar-Faster Than?
The most eagerly anticipated Lotus makes its return. Without doubt, this is
the car that the true Lotus aficionados have been waiting for: The ultimate
Lotus. The new Esprit represents the very essence of exclusive supercar
driving. It picks up and exceeds the legacy of it's forefathers. Think of
it as a statement of superiority. Think of it as Lotus CEO Dany Bahar's
personal statement of intent, his vision for the future of Lotus.

2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR
Debut for the 2011 version of the world's most successful GT race car
The Porsche 911 GT3 RSR takes off into the new motorsport season with
extensive modifications. The 2011 version of the world's most successful GT
race car celebrated its international premiere at the "Night of Champions"
party held at the R&D Centre in Weissach to mark the end of the motorsport
season. Priority in the further development of the GT3 RSR was given to the
newly designed aerodynamics at the front and rear, changes to the
suspension kinematics and to the engine.
The 4.0-litre, six-cylinder boxer engine now delivers 455 hp (355 kW) at
7,800 revs, five horsepower more than its
predecessor. The power increase results from an engine management system
which adapts even better to different fuel grades, as well as a redesigned
Exhaust system and a modified air
intake housing. Moreover, the driveability of the famously efficient engine
has undergone further improvements. Maximum revs remain unchanged at 9,400
Clearly visible are the modifications to the front. A new front lip
provides higher downforce at the front axle. The front wheels are now wider
with the rims growing from 11 to 12 inches giving additional grip and less
of an understeering tendency. The position of the rear wing and the shape
of the wing mounting also underwent optimisation and were adapted to the
new rear fairing with additional air outlet louvers. The rear lid was also
redesigned for optimised air ducting. Like the 911 GT3 Cup and the GT3 R,
the RSR has now been equipped with the LED rear lights taken from the
latest 911 road-legal cars.
The 911 GT3 RSR joins the 911 GT3 R and the 911 GT3 Cup as the top model of
Porsche Motorsport's product range. The successful long distance racer from
Weissach can be ordered now at a price of 410,000 Euro plus
country-specific value added tax. All 2011 modifications are available as a
kit for GT3 RSR cars from the 2010 season.

Porsche 911 Carrera GTS | SOUND AND ACCELERATION | TEST
Porsche 911 Carrera GTS | SOUND AND ACCELERATION | TEST - Porsche is
sending its second generation of the 911 Carrera GTS to the starting line.
Four models – a coupe and a cabriolet, each with rear-wheel or all-wheel
drive – now close the gap between the 911 Carrera S and the street-legal
sports car optimised for the race track, the 911 GT3. Some of the technical
ingredients that generate even more driving dynamics and driving fun: 430
hp (316 kW) power, the Sport Chrono package and the PASM active damper
system which lowers the car's ride height by ten millimetres. Improved
efficiency has also led to quicker accelerations and higher top speeds, but
combined fuel consumption figures remain unchanged at the favourable level
of the S models. When combined with the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe
(PDK), the 911 Carrera GTS sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds
(Cabriolet: 4.2 seconds). The top speed of each GTS model is beyond the 300
km/h barrier; the fastest at 306 km/h is the Coupe with a manual
transmission and rear-wheel drive.
The exteriors of the new 911 cars differ significantly from the other
Carrera models. All models have the 911 Carrera 4 body with wide-flared
rear wheel arches and a wide track. Also standard are 20-inch wheels with
centre wheel locks, which are painted in an exclusive matt black.
Accentuating the front end are special trim elements and smoked bi-xenon
headlights. Black trim strips on the customised GTS air intake screen and
black chrome-plated Exhaust tailpipes
characterise the rear of the GTS.
With the addition of these new top models, the 911 Carrera range now
consists of twelve sports cars at three power levels, as coupes and
cabriolets, and with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive systems. The 911
Carrera GTS and 911 Carrera 4 GTS will be offered in Germany at prices
starting at 117,549 euros, including country-specific features and 19 per
cent VAT. In Germany, the four models will be available at dealers starting
in November 2014.
