The custom restomod Porsche 911 scene is getting a bit more crowded. With the popularity of Singer Porsches, competition in this field was bound to happen. This is a 993 Porsche 911 restored by Kaege from Germany done up to their own specifications. Unlike the Singer, the Kaege version makes do with the original 296hp 3.6L engine but the entire weight of the car has been reduced significantly due to widespread use of carbon fiber. The car now weighs 2635 lbs due to the carbon fiber body panels, as well as the engine bay. Other touches include revised interior, custom wheels that look like the original Fuchs, and abundant use of new technology like LED headlights,seats, suspension, and so many more minor details.
I've been a fan of Yasid's work for a while now and I think he deserves a lot more attention. This artist works out of London making photoshops and car designs that look just otherworldly. There is a certain Mad Max feel to them with all the exposed engine bits, wheel flares, and scoops and wings. It's all just so post-apocalyptic. I believe he does this for video game concepts as well as just to indulge in his own hobbies. He's certainly quiet talented. Continue reading below for a sample of just SOME of his work.

The fine watchmakers at Bell&Ross showed up at Baselworld exhibition in Switzerland (think Geneva Auto Show of watches), and surprised everyone by showing off a concept supercar called the Aero GT. The car is not real, yet. It's still just a computer render, but a damn fine render it is. The shape is surprisingly well thought out and looks really really good. The stealth fighter inspired car features winglets for mirrors, two huge exhausts that mimic a jet fighter's engine, and even a center mid wing that is supposed to increase stability.
Powered by a theoretical 602hp 4.2L Twin Turbo V8 pushing the car to a max speed of 196mph with 0-60 acceleration time of 2.9s. The entire thing weighs 1320kg (2910lbs). Even if this doesn't become a reality and is just a fancy way to sell watches.. at least they did put a lot of thought and work into it and looks like it could actually be a feasible project.
McLaren wants you to go racing and they're giving you an absolute steal of a deal in the new 570S GT4. Priced at only £160k, the entry level race car is made for GT4 spec racing and features the same 3.8L twin turbo V8 from the 570S road car. However they've added additional aero to increase downforce as well as upgraded the car's cooling for racing purposes.
However you can't buy the car just yet. It will be entered into a full season of British GT Championship and will be using the car as a rolling development test bed. McLaren is also making a GT4 Sprint version which will have more aggressive aero, lighter weight, and no road legality whatsover.
If you're looking to jump into GT4 racing, there's no better bargain then the 570S GT4. Read on for the press release and high resolution wallpapers.
