Is the new Macan worthy of the Porsche badge?
By David Hurth
A few weeks ago, Porsche unveiled the much anticipated Porsche Macan. The new compact SUV is the German performance carmaker's first attempt to enter that segment of the market. This new segment has the potential of being quite profitable for Porsche. With the chance of a good financial gain, it is no wonder the automotive manufacturer would like to enter the market, but is the Macan worthy of wearing the Porsche crest?

New 918 Spyder hybrid poised to set benchmark for future Porsches
by Damon Lowney
Every decade or so, Porsche creates a supercar that redefines the category.

The hallowed list of Porsche elite includes the midengine 550 Spyder, the fiberglassbodied 904 Carrera GTS, the 911 Turbo Carrera, the twinturbocharged 959, the barely legal GT1, and, most recently, the carbonfiber Carrera GT.

Each of them introduced new technology that trickled down to regular Porsche road cars.

They pushed boundaries and set trends, and we have one question: Can the plugin hybrid 918 Spyder do the same?

To bring back the drivers, rallies add brain-teasers
The New York Times
One by one, the cars rolled out of the parking lot and onto the Long Island Expressway for the start of the 2013 Vintage Rally: A Porsche 356C from the 1960s. A Porsche 550 Spyder replica. A Porsche 911 Turbo. A 2012 Hyundai Elantra. What's wrong with this picture? Nothing, if you are the organizer of a road rally and would like to see this once-popular activity reverse its long decline, in part by changing the perception of these events as being strictly for the rich.
