Unveiled: 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Porsche has finally taken the covers off its 2010 911 GT3 RS, showing us a leaner and meaner beauty than its predecessor. It looks as good on the road as it does on paper, my friends. Power comes from a 3.8L unit that delivers more output, revving up to 8,500 rpm while producing a neck-snapping 450-hp.

Handling has been improved by Porsche’s new PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) suspension, a wider front and rear track and corresponding bodywork. The GT3 RS features a lithuim-ion battery, replacing  its conventional lead-acid battery, helping reduce weight by 22 lbs.

egmCarTech tells us the 2010 911 GT3 RS goes on sale in the U.S. in early spring of 2010 with prices starting at $132,800.

Steve McQueen Car Show at the Boys Republic in Chino Hills, CA

Friends of McQueen Car Show Hosted by Boys Republic

Every year, Boys Republic, a school out in Chino Hills, CA hosts a car show in Steve McQueen‘s honor. Why Steve, you ask? Well, he’s the school’s most distinct student, as he spent a few years at the institution during his childhood. He gave much credit to the place and made sure they never forgot him and they haven’t. The doors are still open, thanks partially to McQueen and the crowd is still at a respectable number. We definitely hope that never changes.

porsche-museum-stuttgart-1

It’s taken three years of building and roughly 100 million euros, but the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart is now ready and awaiting thousands of visitors that will most likely gather once doors open later this week. We’re intrigued by the architecture of the building almost as much as we are by the architecture of the 80 beauties that are housed there.

The Chechen Republic has gone through two wars in order to gain independence from Russia. The second one didn’t go their way so they are still an entity of Russia and have been going through a rebuilding process for quite sometime.

Times don’t seem tough for these guys though. DesignYouTrust posted these photos under the heading: “Official Supercars of Chechen Republic”. Say no more, Dmitry.
