    Possible MacBook Air replacement?

    I have been considering to replace my trusty old 13" MacBook Air (Late 2010) for some time. It's running 10.13.6 (High Sierra) but I don't think it will be supported for much longer. I guess you can only get so far with a 2,13 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB ram, 256GB SSD, and 320m graphics. It started...

    Spied: Porsche 991 GT2 RS

    Source 1, source 2, source 3. A couple of pictures of the slapped-together test-mule: Seems interesting that they are going straight for the GT2 RS right away, without bothering to make a "normal" GT2 first. The obviously unfinished aero seems to indicate that the final spec may be a bit...

    Spied: 2016 Porsche 911R?

    Rumors have been circulating for a while about a purist, back-to-basics 911. Something like a GT3 with even less comforts, no wing, and manual gearbox only. This will not likely be like the Cayman R or the GT4 or anything like that, it will be more akin to the limited specials like the Sport...

    Various road tests of the new Porsche Cayman (981)

    The old Cayman received a lot of praise for it's superb handling and balance, and pretty much set the standards for it's class. The new one seems to have faired even better if these reviews are anything to go by. The general sensus seems to be that the 981 has raised the bar significantly higher...

    Porsche 991 (997 successor)

    Here is a little teaser of what the 997's successor is going to be like: Key points are that it's going to be slightly longer and wider than the 997, yet somewhat lower. Engines will offer more power. There will also be more aluminium in it's construction, so it will most likely be lighter as...

    (Geneva) Ruf RT-12 R

    (Pistonheads.com) (Ruf-Automobile.de) This might not be as much of an attention grabbing monster as the machinery made by 9ff, but Ruf's creations are well known for being more durable and better sorted. This slots inn nicely with the Ctr-3, RT-12 S, RGT-8, and Roadster.
