The engine in the coming Porsche 911 GT3 RS will be the heart of the turbocharged engines going into the 2016 911 range coming later this year. It will remain naturally-aspirated in the GT3 models, but get boosted help for every model below those. Elsewhere, the next Boxster and Cayman will get turbocharged four-cylinders, and a V8-powered mid-range Porsche supercar is still in the works.
In 2010, Porsche and Audi were both understood to be vying for the chance to provide future sports car platforms for the entire Volkswagen Group. Not to take anything away from Audi, but few would be surprised to learn that Porsche was chosen for the task.
It's not official – yet – but Car and Driver caught Porsche executives discussing a new addition to the lineup. Rumor has it that the German automaker is looking to add a mid-engined supercar to the family, slotting above the 911 range, but below the upcoming 918. This new model will be Porsche's answer to the Ferrari 458 Italia.
