Unleashed and unfiltered, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is a swan-song for the revered gas-only mid-engined sports car. A renegade freed from corporate shackles, it embodies the Cayman’s ultimate evolution. With the GT3’s glorious naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six pumping out a healthy 493 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque, it’s a symphony of pure, unadulterated power.

Electrification isn’t the end of internal combustion, but in a way is its evolution. In the hypercar segment, hybrid technology is breathing new life into high-performance combustion engines, marrying raw power with performance and efficiency. A trend that really began with the Holy Trinity (La Ferrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, and McLaren P1) has evolved significantly over the past decade with automakers finding better ways to integrate green tech with traditional ICE.

The all-new Bugatti Tourbillon is here as the successor of the iconic Chiron hypercar. This beast of a hypercar, named after the intricate mechanism in mechanical watches, was unveiled in June 2024, and it’s got everyone talking. Why? Well, for starters, it’s Bugatti’s first-ever hybrid! That’s right. This monster combines a massive 8.3-liter naturally aspirated V16 engine developed with Cosworth with three electric motors, and boom: total system output is a whopping 1,775 horsepower!

After long-standing speculations and teasers, the Chiron replacement is finally here! The Bugatti Tourbillon ditches the EV trend and sticks to its internal combustion heritage with a twist. Yes, it’s a plug-in hybrid and the first Bugatti under Mate Rimac’s leadership. Beneath its elegant silhouette lies a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, holding a Cosworth-developed 8.3-liter naturally aspirated V16 coupled with three electric motors. Combined, the hybrid powertrain cranks out 1,775 horsepower. With a 0-60 mph time of two seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 276 mph, the Tourbillon is not only more potent than the outgoing Chiron but also faster.

Learn about what's changed between the hypercar that started it all and Bugatti's latest physics-defying creation

The story of French automaker Bugatti after the Volkswagen Group’s acquisition in 1998 is a wild ride. Remember the outrageous EB110? Yeah, Bugatti needed to blow everyone’s minds again with its successor, and the Veyron concept, which debuted in 2001, just did that. With a quad-turbocharged W16 engine pumping out a mind-boggling 987 horsepower, the Veyron shattered records and became the world’s fastest production car of its time. Some even consider the Veyron to be the world’s first hypercar, with its reign lasting nearly 15 years! And that was just the beginning of Bugatti’s prowess under VW’s guidance.

Mate Rimac, the Croatian innovator and entrepreneur, is now the CEO of Bugatti Rimac.

The merger saw Rimac Group, the parent company of Rimac Automobili, become the majority shareholder with a 55 percent stake. Porsche, under the Volkswagen Group, holds the remaining 45 percent stake. This partnership brought together two powerhouses in the automotive world, merging Rimac’s EV technology expertise with Bugatti’s luxury and performance heritage.

After a successful eight-year reign and 500 examples later, the iconic Bugatti Chiron is bowing out, leaving behind an even outrageous successor, the Tourbillon. Taking its name from an intricate mechanism in a watch, this all-new hypercar just debuted on the 20th of June 2024 as a 2026 model year, boasting a unique hybrid powertrain that combines a Cosworth-developed 8.3-liter naturally aspirated V16 engine with three electric motors, pushing out a total of 1,775 horses!

An In-Depth Look At The Advanced Aerodynamics Of The Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Find out how Porsche leveraged the forces of nature and race-bred tech to create the ultimate track-weapon

Being the most capable 911 around a racetrack, the 992.1 911 GT3 RS is just a toned-down version of the 911 GT3 R endurance racing car. The aggressive bodywork isn’t just for show, but has a genuine functional purpose. Right from its design (that massive rear wing is just otherworldly for a street-legal production car) to delivering flat-out performance, thanks to its high-revving naturally aspirated flat-six, the 911 GT3 RS is an enthusiast’s dream that costs Ferrari money. Aerodynamics is the magic formula that transforms a fast sports car into a track-devouring monster. It’s all about manipulating the airflow around the vehicle to maximize performance and handling.

Porsche has given its popular Cayenne SUV a fresh look for the 2024 model year, marking a significant update since the sport-ute entered its third generation in 2017. This facelift brings a redesigned front and rear fascia, along with a revamped cabin with more screen real estate than ever, giving the Cayenne a sharper, more modern appearance.

Here's Why Porsche Uses The Swan Neck Rear Wing On Its GT Models

Find out how this unique wing design differs from a traditional spoiler and the benefits it offers to Porsche sports cars

The swan-neck rear wing, an aerodynamic spoiler design innovation that debuted in motorsport, emerged in response to safety regulations introduced by the Automobile Club de I’Quest (ACO) in 2009. These regulations aimed to address concerns about rear-wing-induced accidents during high-speed races. Engineers constantly tinkered, trying to squeeze out more downforce without sacrificing speed to increase on-track stability.

While both are street-legal machines designed for track use, find out how the two have a few key fundamental differences that set them apart

In the world of Porsche, the "GT" badge has always signified a level of performance and focus beyond the ordinary. Take the 992.1 911 GT3 RS, a car barely disguising its racing roots. With its massive wing, aggressive aerodynamic bodywork, and a howling 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine churning out 518 horsepower, it’s the pinnacle of what a road-legal Porsche can be.

The 2025 Carrera GTS Is NOT Porsche's First Hybrid 911

We look back at the forgotten GT3 R from 2010, where Porsche dabbled with the idea of a 911 hybrid for the first time

With the introduction of the 992.2 Carrera GTS for the 2025 model year, Porsche’s iconic 911 sports car enters a new era of hybridization, or at least that’s what people are saying. But it’s technically not the first hybrid 911.

The One Drivetrain Feature That The Boxster Cayman Pair DO Not Offer

Great to drive but a little short on grip? Find out why the entry-level Porsche sports car has never offered AWD

The Porsche 718 Boxster, alongside its hardtop sibling, the Cayman, has evolved into a performance powerhouse in the Porsche lineup over the past two decades. Even with the base 2.0-liter 300-horsepower turbo Boxer-four engine (which sounds similar to a Subaru Boxer four, in my opinion), the 718 not only offers performance that’s useable on a day-to-day basis but also has enough potential to carve corners with precision.

The Ultimate Cheap Fix For The Fried-Egg 996 Porsche 911?

If you're not a fan of the way the 996 looks, find out how this $400 hack can remedy that, while maintaining originality

The Porsche 996 generation, produced between 1998 and 2005, remains a controversial model in the 911 history. While it’s celebrated for being one of the most affordable ways to enter the 911 family, often priced below $30,000, it’s also garnered a reputation for its divisive design and reliability concerns. Many purists criticize the "fried egg" headlights, a radical departure from the classic round lights of previous generations, and early examples were plagued by engine issues related to the intermediate shaft (IMS) bearing.

Here's Why This 992 Carrera S Is A Budget Turbo S In Disguise

Here's a hack that will help unlock big performance from your 992 Carrera S, without breaking the bank

The Porsche 911: a sports car so ubiquitous, it’s as common as the Toyota Camry in some cities. For over six decades, this iconic model has held a steadfast position as the most recognizable sports car, captivating enthusiasts and status seekers alike. The 911 is a paradox, both a driver’s car revered by purists and a symbol of affluence coveted by many. Among Porsche 911’s model palette, the Carrera S serves as the perfect middle ground between the base Carrera and the bonkers Carrera GTS. But what if you crave the unbridled power of a Turbo S without having to spend a ridiculous amount of money? Well, the owner of this 2022 992.1 Carrera S had aspirations along similar lines, and with a tune, his 911 now produces almost 600 horsepower!

The Only Porsche 911 That You Can Buy New With A Manual

Here's why this limited-edition gem to offer a stick is a Porsche purist's dream

Porsche recently debuted the 2025 992.2 Carrera and the Carrera GTS models, with the latter sporting motorsport-derived hybrid technology. However, both forego the seven-speed manual gearbox option, at least for now. Even if you configure a pre-facelifted 992.1 GT3 and GT3 RS on Porsche’s website, you’d have no option but to choose the seven-speed PDK automatic gearbox. The only manual-equipped 911 Porsche currently available is the limited-edition 911 S/T, which debuted back in August 2023.

Hybrid Showdown: 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Vs. 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray

While both the Corvette and 911 now offer a hybrid variant, they have one fundamental noteworthy difference

Porsche recently introduced its first electrified 911 with the Carrera GTS as part of the facelifted 992.2 generation Porsche 911. It comes at a time when there are only a few two-door hybrid sports cars available in the market, and one of them is the Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray. Now, it is worth noting that neither of the two cars mentioned here are not plug-in hybrids and only feature very compact battery packs. This is why Porsche doesn’t refer to the new 911 Carrera GTS as an E-Hybrid (PHEVs in Porsche world) but instead calls it a T-Hybrid, which means Turbo Hybrid.
