Sure, the YSA-021 Super Sport XXL Porsche may not be street-legal around the world, but Car Throttle drives what what is touted as the world’s first. Let’s just say that not everything straight from the factory, as many modifications needed to be made, such as adding turn indicators, headlights, side view mirrors, a working horn and functional seat belts.
This 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera is probably as close as you’ll get to a street legal rally car that will also let you live out your safari dreams. Modified by Vali Motorsports, it features a lifted suspension, skid plates, a roll cage, limited-slip differential, and most importantly, 16-inch Braid wheels wrapped in 215/65 BFGoodrich all-terrain tires. The exterior is finished in red, while the black interior sports a six-point harnesses, power accessories, air conditioning, and carbon-fiber seats upholstered in black Alcantara.
Auto enthusiasts rejoice! The LEGO Group has unveiled their new two-in-one Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa set. This means that you’ll be able to build either the fixed roof 911 Turbo model or an open-roof 911 Targa, complete with the angled headlamps, sculpted bonnet as well as iconic rear-mounted flat six ‘boxer’ engine. Inside, you’ll find 2+2 sports seats, a dashboard finished in dark orange / nougat, handbrake, gearshift and functional steering.
Porsche has created numerous concepts over the years, but just a handful have never been revealed to the public, that is until…now. One of these vehicles is the Porsche 919 Street. Put simply, it’s the road-going version of its Le Mans hybrid race car from 2017 that makes 900-horsepower, complete with carbon-fiber monocoque. Unlike most hypercars, this one does not have a large rear ring in the back, but it does boast a full-width LED light strip.

What better way to kick off the 24 Hour Le Mans Season Opener than by driving the new safety car, a Porsche Taycan Turbo, from the automaker’s experience center in Hockenheim? That’s exactly what happened, using the vehicle’s battery-electric all-wheel-drive drivetrain with a permanent-magnet synchronous motor on each axle generating 671 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to Porsche Destination Charging, making sure the Taycan is charged was a breeze. Guests of selected hotels, golf courses and marinas can also access these 1,000+ charging points across 20 countries.
