1. Porsche set to muscle in on Range Rover
By Joseph Archibald
The new Porsche Macan is set to hit the U.S. market this spring, and the German automaker is hoping that the smaller category of the luxury SUV market will slot in nicely just below the larger and more costly Porsche Cayenne. As you would expect, the front fascia on the Macan and much of its side profile appear similar to the existing Cayenne, albeit a scaled-down version. However, at the rear there's more of a resemblance to the 911, along with its single-piece bar taillight design. This is a slick touch indeed.

2. Porsche Targa gets back to its roots
By David Hurth
At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, one of the big debuts was the new Porsche 911 Targa. The rear-engined sports car is a throwback to the early days of the Targa, but with a modern twist. The Targa was originally introduced in 1967 and allowed open-air driving thanks to a removable hard top panel. The design allowed for a roll bar that made it safer in the event of a rollover and more rigid than a standard convertible. Over the years, the Targa kept the same basic design, until it was changed in 1996. With the 991 variant of the Targa, Porsche has returned to the original style.

3. Porsche strongly considering making 991-Generation GT3 RS available with a stick
Car and Driver Blog
Porsche's 911 Turbo and Turbo S models are monsters, in a good way, but we've typically preferred the purist approach of the naturally aspirated GT3 models. And the current GT3 is no exception; it's the most desirable 911 on the market. That's likely to change soon, however.

5. Video: Chris Harris drives the Porsche 911 Carrera S and Corvette Stingray
The Sports Car Guys
Both the Porsche 911 Carrera S (991) and the Corvette Stingray (C7) are great performing cars. For years the two have been compared, but more recently the pricing of the two has grown further apart.
