Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS

porsche-911-targa-4-gts-1

Being the 50th Anniversary of the Targa model, Porsche have given the latest model their signature GTS touch which features a 430 hp engine and better performance. The retractable roof adds to the cars immense weight (for it’s size) but regardless is stunning to look at. The Targa 4 GTS accelerates to 100km/h in just 4.3 seconds.

In terms of aesthetics this updated model has been given some Bi-Xenon headlights, Turbo S 20-inch weels, Sport Plus seats and a modified bumper.

You can see a video of the new Porsche Targa here.
 
 
 

Ford GT

Todd Willing, an Australian from Hobart who has worked on models such as the Ford Territory actually lead the design of the Ford GT. This project was kept under wraps by the Ford management team and Todd wasn’t even aloud to tell his wife and kids about the new model

For good reason, the new GT features an astounding 3.5 litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine which pumps out over 592 hp. The model is set to begin production in 2016 and looks to be rivals of Lamborghini and Ferrari.

 
 
 

Mercedes GLE63 AMG S Coupe


Mercedes has finally released their own competitor to BMW’s X6/M6 model. The GLE features a sporty and curved body which will give any conservative car lover a fright – it’s a lot too handle.

The GLE incorporates a 5.5 litre twin-turbo V8 engine which features 577 hp (in the S Coupe) and reaches 100km/h in 4.3 seconds. These speed and acceleration figures are devilishly close to that of the M6 so the competition will be interesting.

In terms of looks I think the M6 will dominate as it doesn’t have such a confronting look.

Acura NSX

I don’t mind the Acura NSX as a sports car. The design features a sensible mixture of sporty, futuristic and practical elements. You also get a twin-turbocharged V6 engine whcih packs over 500 hp, not to mention a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The car is also set to include a two-motor hybrid system which apparently improves stability, control and power distribution which is usually only available in top luxury modesl from the likes of McLaren and Porsche.
 
 
 

Mercedes F015

It drives itself.
 
 
 

Jaguar F-Pace

Jag have succumbed to the current SUV craze. The F-Pace will debut later this year and its design, as seen in its name is partly inspired by the F-type.

The sport SUV seats 5 and used an aluminium-intensive body to keep it light and nimble.

Although we haven’t yet seen the actual product car, the design that the renders depict look pretty damn nice.

 
 
 

Toyota FT-1

This concept is still a few years off and is simply a design that has been released by Toyota’s team.

No mechanical specs have been released so it is difficult to speculate on the performance of the vehicle and what engine they use.

Nevertheless this ‘what-if’ concept car could one day be something pretty cool.
