Since the launch of competitors like the Audi R8, Lamborghini Gallardo or Aventador and McLaren 12C, Porsche lost a lot in the field of super cars. Despite the fact they have probably one of the most loyal customers ever, sales are not what they were in past years. With the launch of the new 960, the german company hopes to be back on the race! The new car is positioned by the brand between 911 turbo and the 918. It is far more powerful than a Cayman.

  • Aluminium and composite platform
  • 8 Cylinder engine developing 600 hp (hybrid power train)
  • Arrival beginning 2017

So now you know what to expect in the incoming 4 years. Others will also come and we might get more information to come. Which other super car should we add in the article? Let us know bellow in the comments.
