2. PCA and Porsche unveil 2015 911 GTS Club Coupe [w/video]
Porsche Club of America is excited to announce the new Porsche 911 GTS Club Coupe, the product of collaboration between PCA and Porsche to honor our club’s 60th anniversary. It was unveiled Jan. 21 at Porsche Cars North America’s new headquarters at One Porsche Drive in Atlanta.

Handcrafted at Porsche Exclusive and based on the 911 Carrera GTS, it was developed with input from members of PCA’s Executive Council to include features that can’t be found on any other Porsche model. Only 60 GTS Club Coupes will be made, for PCA members only, ensuring that they stay in the PCA family and remain exotic like the last PCA Club Coupe from 2005.

5. Naked 2015 Porsche Cayman GT4 streaks for the camera
Car and Driver
Last May, Car and Driver brought you advanced notice of the 2015 Porsche Cayman GT4, which is expected to follow in the hallowed tire treads of the visceral brain-nuke that is the 911 GT3. Today, it brings you images of a prototype that looks 100 percent ready for the showroom. If this indeed is a production-spec Cayman GT4, most of the modifications seen on the prototype back in May (front fascia, rear diffuser, ducktail-style lower decklid spoiler, GT3-like duct in front of the hood) were product-correct.
