1. Video: Porsche's Head of GT Cars shares details of Cayman GT4
Porsche announced the Cayman GT4 Feb. 3, a true driver's Porsche with 385 horsepower and a manual transmission, but information about the car's specifications, development process, and how much it actually shares with the GT3 was thin in Porsche's press release. Fortunately Andreas Preuninger, head of GT cars at Porsche Motorsport, shares such details in this EVO video interview that was published when the GT4 was announced.

2. 991 GT3 RS 4.0 specifications leaked
Porsche's internal standard equipment specifications list for the new 991-generation Porsche GT3 RS Euro model have been leaked/revealed on (must be registered to view), and the draft PDF document confirms it’s another RS 4.0. The document also states sales of the Euro model start on March 3, 2015.

Though it shares the same 4.0-liter displacement and 500 horsepower as the last RS 4.0, the naturally aspirated flat six is all new. As of now, the spec sheet indicates it will come with a short-ratio seven-speed PDK automatic (no mention of a manual), a new, wide body, and feature lightweight materials and features.

4. Video: PCA members get first look at GTS Club Coupe at Daytona 24
Porsche and Porsche Club of America have spent the past three years working to bring the 911 GTS Club Coupe to fruition to commemorate the club’s 60th Anniversary this year. After it debuted at PCNA’s new headquarters at One Porsche Drive, it made the trek from Atlanta to Daytona Beach so our members could see it in the metal at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

We had our cameras out for the occasion, so watch the first video below to see the GTS Club Coupe in public for the first time, in front of members’ eyes, and the second video to see their initial impressions of it.

5. Porsche will put navigation into your classic 911 if you really want it
I feel like if you're driving a classic 911, your experience should be about the journey, not the destination. But if you really have somewhere to be and don't want to get lost, and are tired of fumbling with your smartphone when you're driving, Porsche has a new-school solution for your old-school car.
