Porsche Cayman GT4 – Keep your 911…


The 2015 Cayman GT4 is expected to be the most high performance Cayman variant ever.

A pre-production prototype of the range-topping model was seen wearing an aggressive front fascia, a front-splitter, a giant rear wing, model exclusive wheels and other enhancements.

The Cayman GT4 may use Porsche’s 3.4-litre inline-six engine mated to the sole transmission option, a 7-speed PDK. GTspirit wil have all the details following its debut in the first-quarter of this year.”

BMW M2 at Geneva


Production of the long-awaited BMW M2 sports car is set to start in November this year after the new car emerged on BMW dealer computers across the United States.

The build sheet reveals that production of U.S-spec M2s will begin in November just like those destined for Europe. Customer deliveries are then most likely to commence in late December or early January 2016.

According to reports, a concept variant of the BMW M2 will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 in March in near production-spec. The covers will then reportedly be taken off the road-going BMW M2 at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show 2015.

As for what will power the M2, the latest reports indicate that a brand new, next-generation 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged six-cylinder is likely to be given the green light. Designated as the S57 B30, the new engine will feature different internals to the same sized ‘six from the M3/M4. All up, it should deliver around 370 hp and come fitted with either a six-speed manual transmission or alternatively, a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Second-Generation Audi R8 Debuting at Geneva 2015


Audi R8

It has been confirmed that the next-generation 2016 Audi R8 will debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 in early March. Additionally, the production-spec all-electric Audi R8 e-tron could also be introduced at the same time.

While speaking with Car Advice about the long-awaited Audi R8 e-tron, Audi board member for technical development Ulrich Hackenberg said, “That [e-tron] will be introduced with the successor of the R8, and we will have first example of the car … in next March, at Geneva, so you will see, it’s done.”

Beyond the electric version, the next-gen Audi R8 will be available with both a 4.2-litre V8 and a 5.2-litre V10 with the latter unit borrowed from the Lamborghini Huracan. Elsewhere, the next-generation Audi R8 will be built around the same carbon fibre and aluminium chassis but feature a longer wheelbase and slightly wider track.

Interestingly, Audi is said to have decided on ditching the manual transmission of the current car and instead offering the R8 supercar solely with an uprated variant of the current car’s S tronic seven-speed automatic transmission.
