The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup houses a 3.8L flat-6 engine that produces 460 horsepower, surpassing its predecessor by 10 horsepower. A 6-speed dog-type gearbox developed by Porsche Motorsport, which is operated via steering wheel-mounted shift paddles (for the first time in a Porsche brand trophy race car), transmits power to the rear wheels.
Meanwhile, the 2015 Porsche Macan will excite small CUV buyers at the Toronto Auto Show with two models: S ($54,300) and Turbo ($82,200). The former gets a 340-horsepower, 3.0L twin-turbo V6, and can accelerate to 100 km/h in as low as 5.2 seconds with the Sport Chrono package. The latter drops that time to 4.6 seconds thanks to a 3.6L twin-turbo V6 rated at 400 horsepower.
