Car Corral Alert: ALMS Oak Tree Grand Prix at VIR Oct. 4-5, 2013
Porscheplatz
The 2013 ALMS Oak Tree Grand Prix returns to Virginia International Raceway, Alton, Va., Oct. 4-5, 2013. The fastest prototypes and GTs — the same cars and stars that race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Road Atlanta's Petit Le Mans — makes this a fast paced two days of outstanding ALMS racing. The top LMP cars are as sophisticated as F1 machines. This is an awesome chance to see these machines up close. There will also be several other series racing on Friday and Saturday.

Video: New Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet (991) caught in Germany
The Sports Car Guys
The new Porsche 911 Turbo (991) is a very fast car. The turbocharged rear-engine car puts out a healthy 520 horsepower and can rocket its driver from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds (and we all know how conservative Porsche can be with their 0 to 60 mph times) and keep going all the way up to a top speed of 196 mph. All this performance goes even better with the S model.
