Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT launched in India at INR 2.57 crore

Porsche has launched the new Cayenne Turbo GT in India at INR 2.57 crore (ex-showroom). The Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT was globally unveiled in June 2021 and now sits at the top of the Cayenne range in India. Visually, the Cayenne Turbo GT does not look all that different from the standard Turbo Coupe. The styling changes are purely functional – either meant for more efficient engine and brake cooling or for additional downforce. For instance, the front bumper has been reworked with larger cooling ducts and a new lip spoiler. At the rear, there’s a modified roof spoiler with new carbon-fibre side-mounted wing elements.

1964 Porsche Carrera GTS can be yours for a cool $2.45 Million

An extremely rare 1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS is now up for auction at the Gooding & Company. The Gooding & Company is an automotive auction house based in Santa Monica, California – known for setting world-record prices for classic cars such as this one.  When the 904 Carrera GTS debuted in 1964, it represented Porsche’s first foray into fiberglass bodywork, but it was also the German automaker’s last hurrah for its four-cam, four-cylinder engine.
