Cars from the SPEED World Challenge GT flying past at New Jersey Motorsports Park, the Thunderbolt raceway. Pick your favorite. Be careful, the Blue and white GMG Porsche is actually Porsche testing their new 2010 GT3 Cup Car that isn't even out yet. The rear end is wider, and there is only about 5 of them right in the world. This is May 2, 2009 at New Jersey Motorsports Park. In case you were wondering the Viper is far behind because he spun, the #1 Volvo was penalized, but still managed to place second, the first place car being the #2 Volvo S60-R.

Porsche Carrera GT at Track
100TH VIDEO - An amazing Carrera GT stars in my 100th video. The owner was very nice, the owner actually "drives" his Carrera GT, the right dash is autographed with many famous Porsche driver's signatures, with one signing saying " 191 MPH, Thanks!", that shows he hits high speeds. The video shows me chasing him in, and him parading around the track. The owner was very nice, started it up, let me sit in it and even watched the Speed World Challenge GT and Koni challenge races with me. The moment I saw this car at the gates, I ran about 1/4 a mile to find it at the Porsche Club of America (PCA) at the Porsche corral, hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Location - New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP), Thunderbolt Raceway
SPIED: 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup
In the SPEED World Challenge GT, no one has yet to point out the strange blue and white 911 GT3 Cup. The rear taillights are those of on the new 911 GT3 unveiled a few moths back. I chased the car to it's garage, and it turns out that Porsche has issued about 5 of these 2010 GT3 Cups. The 2010 GT3 Cup is only re-designed at the rear, front end changes are to noticeable. Minor changes at the rear, wider and a new set of LEDs. Enjoy.

2014 Porsche 911 turbo S, first presentation. World presentation in Moscow.03.05.13.
Porsche has revealed today the 911 turbo and turbo S, ahead of a public debut scheduled for September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Following several reports and batches of spy shots, the latest 911 turbo lineup has arrived. turbo and turbo S make use of a six-cylinder, 3.8-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine delivering 520 HP (383 kW) in the 911 turbo and 560 HP (412 kW) in the 911 turbo S variant. Power is transferred to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK with auto stop/start function which has slashed off fuel consumption by 16 percent to 9.7 liters / 100 km (24.2 mpg US or 29.1 mpg UK).
The 911 turbo equipped with Sport Chrono Package will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds, while the turbo S is 0.1s quicker. Both of them are capable of reaching a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h).
Length has increased by 40mm to 4490mm, while width is also up by 28mm compared to Carrera 4 models to 1878mm. Porsche has also stretched the wheelbase by 100mm to 2450mm, while the front and rear tracks are also longer than before. Both models ride on 20-inch alloy wheels but only the S version has hub wheel locks. The turbo S also gains full LED headlights with four-point daytime running lights and camera-based main beam control (optionally available for turbo).
Just like the 911 GT3, the turbo variants have four-wheel steering which help the cars lap Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes 30 seconds with standard production tires fitted. Both of them have a retractable three-stage rear spoiler and a deployable rear wing with three adjustable wing positions.
Scheduled to reach the market in September, the 2014 Porsche 911 turbo has a starting price in Germany of 162,055 EUR while the 911 turbo S begins at 195,256 EUR. VAT and country-specific taxes included.
