Road-going version of carbon-fiber three-seat race car

Let's recap what's coming from Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus. The small-batch U.S. manufacturer showed the 004S last November, a carbon-fiber bodied, 2,600-pound, three-seater road car that comes with a gated, six-speed manual but offers a paddle-shifter as a cost option. A track-only version called the 004C will be developed to run in GTE, GTLM, GT3, and GT4 racing, as well as Germany's VLN series that includes Nürburgring races in the SPX class. Then we have the 004CS, which is the road-go

But one generally accepted move is to remove weight, which helps both in efficiency and performance. General Motors has revealed a new technology that may become commonplace for shaving off a few pounds here and there, and the results are pretty freaky-looking.

Digital Trends interviewed Porsche GT-car boss Andreas Preuninger, and asked whether the lightweighting Weissach Package could find its way to non-RS cars. Preuninger might have loosed at least a few worms from the proverbial can when he told the site, "I won't rule out some lightweight package will find its way to other model lines in the future." Even though Preuninger added, "We have nothing planned yet, we're very busy; don't expect to see the Cayenne Weissach next month," the opening will h
