New Mini Cabrio-Porsche 911 GT3 RS-Abarth to produce new sports car
For the first time, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been spotted completely undisguised. The car has been sighted on numerous occasions last year but each time was fully disguised. An image of the car has however been leaked online revealing the vehicle in full including a Jet Black colour option. Looks and body design wise, you can expect to find some of the traditional Porsche 911 features such as the two raised headlights and creases in the bonnet which help to make the car an efficient and agile performer.
A set of Red brake pistons are also visible behind the alloy wheel design. The new GT3 RS model is both longer and wider than the current Porsche 911 and is expected to run via a dual clutch transmission system. Specification wise, the German firm are keeping their lips sealed for now but we expect to hear more on the technical data to come along with the car closer to the time of launch.
Alfa Romeo to be replaced by Abarth in sports car production
It has been previously said that Italians Alfa Romeo were all set to produce a new sports car based on the Mazda MX-5 around the time of 2016. The latest in the development of the car though is that Alfa Romeo have officially pulled out of making the vehicle altogether and have now been replaced by the Abarth brand. This would make a lot of sense as both companies are owned by Fiat.
Although images of what the car would look like and specification lists have not been revealed to the world yet,it is believed that traditional body work both in terms of height and width and a soft top setup would come along with the vehicle much similar to Mazda's big seller. The new sports car would be expected to be developed in 2016 now by Abarth and as soon as we learn more about the vehicle we will keep you updated with all of the latest.
New Mini Cabrio is spotted
An all new Mini Cabrio model which is expected to come as a part of the Cooper and Cooper S range in the future has been spotted undergoing tests in its prototype form on the streets of Europe over the weekend. The car was disguised upon its sighting but features such as the retractable folding roof were clearly visible as were the same four seater layout we are all accustomed to from popular Mini models. A two litre turbo engine is also expected to be announced for the vehicle closer to its launch.
