• Porsche planning to target 458 Italia with new mid engine sports car - 961

      In an interview with Car and Driver Porsche CEO Matthias Muller confirmed that a new mid engine sports car to be positioned between the 911 and 918 is coming. Well, we know the cars in the segment Porsche is aiming at and the main rivals are the 458 Italia and the McLaren MP4-12C. It would not be surprising to see this car share a platform with whatever Lamborghini calls the Gallardo successor. The name of the car will likely be 961 which was the race car in the famous Group B based on the Porsche 959 supercar. The car may bow in as early as 2013.
