Porsche Cayman 718 GT4 RS spied

Porsche has been spied testing what could be the first Cayman GT4 RS – a lighter, harder and faster version of our 2019 evo Car of the Year. Specific details remain sparse at this time, but it’s expected that the GT4 RS will follow Porsche’s traditional RS recipe of combining lighter components, more substantial aero and a slight increase in engine power to create the most exciting Cayman yet.

The GT4 RS should find its mechanical basis in the standard GT4, utilising a version of the naturally aspirated 4-litre flat-six that has also recently found a home in the Cayman and Boxster GTS. Power will likely be raised above that of the GT4’s 414bhp, but is unlikely to go significantly above that so not to encroach on the next 911 GT3 which we expect to see later this year.

New Audi RS3 spied again – to go head-to-head with the AMG A45 S

The Mercedes-AMG A45 S has barely had six months to assert its new-found dominance at the top of the hot hatchback ladder, but Audi Sport doesn’t look to be giving an inch with an all-new version of its RS3 Sportback (and saloon) that will be arriving far more promptly than its two predecessors.

We’ve already seen prototypes of the new RS3 in both hatchback and saloon guises, but this is the first time we’ve seen it with what looks to be production-specification bodywork, rather than the crude over-fenders and cut-out rear diffuser hiding the typically oval exhaust pipes of previous prototypes.

Porsche 911 Carrera S manual now available to order in the UK

Porsche has announced its much anticipated seven-speed manual transmission option is now available to order in the UK and other European markets. The manual joins the 911’s standard eight-speed PDK on Carrera S and Carrera 4S models as a no-cost option, but will not be available on the standard Carrera or Turbo models, however a future Carrera T fitted with the manual transmission might be on the cards. 

The seven-speed transmission itself has been engineered specifically to improve its tactility compared to the first seven-speed introduced in the previous 991-generation 911, while the switchable auto-blipping function and shorter throw promise faster change times than were possible before.

2020 Maserati MC20 prototype pays tribute to Stirling Moss

Maserati has paid tribute to Stirling Moss with a new camouflage livery on its latest MC20 test mule. The new images also give us our best look yet at the upcoming supercar ahead of its September launch. Set to be the marque’s flagship machine, the new model will pave the way for a number of new cars, and will take Maserati back to the circuit.

The mule shown in these latest images features a design harking back to the Maserati Eldorado, a single-seat racer driven at Monza in 1958 by British motorsport icon Stirling Moss. The 13 May release date isn’t a coincidence either, as it’s the date Moss saw victory at the Monaco Grand Prix in 1956, at the helm of the Maserati 250F.
