BMW Debuts The New M4 GT3 And… We Dig The Front End?

Ever since the front-end of the new G82 M4 was leaked earlier this year, automotive enthusiasts have taken to social media to express their disgust over its buck-toothed, inflamed kidney, Sea Lamprey-lookin’ front grille in droves. Hot take comin’ at you: we think the front grille looks much better in race car form. Well, maybe this isn’t that hot of a take; all aspects of car exteriors always look better in race form.

Why Making A Street-Driven 991.1 Porsche GT3 More Cup Car-Like Is A Solid Decision

The GT3 is the closest one can get to a loud, stiff, purpose-built 911 GT3 Cup Car without having to put on a helmet, slither into a roll cage, and snap a 6-point harness together. Or is it?

BMW Reveals M6 GT3 Race Car, Replaces Z4 GT3 for 2016 Season

The Z4 GT3 has enjoyed a fairly successful racing career since its debut in 2010, but it appears that BMW Motorsport is not content to rest on its laurels. Accordingly, the Z4 GT3 will bow out after the 2015 season to make way for the new M6 GT3, which will use a race spec version of the road-going M6’s 560 horsepower, 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8, and will be available for customer teams to order next year.

First Look: 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0

Just when you thought there was already a Porsche 911 for every occasion, the fine folks from Stuttgart drop a 4.0-liter, dry-sump, 500-horsepower monster into the shapely rear-end of the already awesome GT3 RS, creating the 911 GT3 RS 4.0. Thanks to the race-derived flat-six, the 4.0 can scoot to 60 in 3.8 seconds, and will hit 124 miles per hour in under 12 seconds. As God intended, this 911 is only available with a six-speed manual.
