Porsche Power, McLaren Mystery Car & Toyota Comfort
October 18, 2017
Porsche is adding even more performance to the line-up. They’re expanding their mid-engine range with the new two-seater 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS. Horsepower increases to 365 from the 2.5-litre, four-cylinder boxer engine. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual or optional PDK.
McLaren is working on what they call their “most track-concentrated road car yet”. It will be part of their Ultimate Series. While it will be road legal, McLaren says “daily usability is being sacrificed to give the most intensive driver experience around a circuit”. McLaren plans to share the name and other facts by the end of the year. Look for the reveal in early 2018.
Toyota’s vision for the future includes their Fine-Comfort Ride concept. The fuel cell vehicle runs on electric power using hydrogen as an energy source. Toyota says the range is 621 miles, and refueling takes about three minutes. They plan to show it at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 later this month.
