Porsche’s 911 Turbo S Spreads Its Gold-Plated Wings as the 911 Exclusive

The Porsche 911 Turbo S offers supercar-humbling acceleration and incredible top-end performance for under $200,000. However, until the next 911 GT2 RS breaks cover with what we expect to be well over 600 horsepower, Porsche enthusiasts can only graduate from the 911 Turbo S to the sold-out, $845K Porsche 918 Spyder.

Fortunately, Porsche now has a remedy. The 911 Turbo S Exclusive will bring more power, unique styling, and a loftier price point to satisfy those that want more of, well, everything. Specifically, the Exclusive Series will increase power to 607 horses (up 27 over the Turbo S) and drop 0 to 124 mph acceleration by 0.3 seconds, to 9.6 seconds. 0-60 is still quoted at 2.8 seconds, but we’d wager the right conditions could knock a tenth of a second off that. Same goes for the top speed of 205 mph.

Apart from the additional power, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive gets a golden-yellow metallic paint, center-locking 20-inch wheels in black and gold, black and gold carbon ceramic brakes, a larger carbon fiber rear wing, a carbon fiber roof and trunk, dual black exhaust tips, and a redesigned front fascia.

Inside, gold accents are sprinkled throughout the cabin, copper thread is woven into the carbon fiber treatments, and 911 Exclusive badging adorns both doorsills. Porsche has also designed a watch and luggage package to accompany the vehicle. The five-piece luggage set will retail for $6,324 and the watch has yet to be priced.

By the time Porsche’s “Exclusive Manufaktur” is finished with the 911 Turbo S, a once-reticent supercar has been fully extracted from its shell.

Only 500 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusives will be built worldwide, each at a starting price of $257,500. Porsche is currently taking orders, so if you gotta have that gold, raise your wallets now!

How to care for your EV battery and reduce range anxiety
Protect your investment with these handy EV battery care tips
ev charging in sunny weather

Electric vehicle batteries can be the source of a lot of anxiety -- most of which centers on their storage capacity. This can include range anxiety, and when a battery's performance degrades past a certain point, EV battery replacement costs.

There are also environmental concerns to consider. When your vehicle's juice box does eventually kick the bucket, EV battery recycling is an option and one that is becoming more and more efficient as time goes on. But with proper EV battery care, you can fend off the lithium reaper and keep your car's original power supply in place for years longer than it otherwise would be.

Ferraris are in high demand
RM Sotheby's Lost & Found Ferrari collection

1995 Ferrari F50 Rear 3/4 View Joshua Sweeney/Broad Arrow Auction / Broad Arrow Auctions

Recently, we reported about a herd of Italian thoroughbreds that were lost in time, spending fourteen years from 1990 to 2004 in a Floridian barn. Then, after Hurricane Charley laid waste to the Ferraris' farmhouse, the Italian stallions were moved to a weatherproof warehouse across from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where they ironically laid motionless for nearly the next twenty years until the precious few who knew of this buried treasure decided to finally set these cars free in what RM Sotheby's deemed 'The Lost & Found Collection.'  With some incredibly captivating backstories, these 20 Ferraris were expected to bring in a king's ransom, and no one could have predicted that this collection would bring in enough to buy the whole kingdom.

UAW Strike cripples the Big Three – GM, Ford, and Stellantis productions grinds to halt
UAW members striking

Over 10,000 automotive workers have walked off the job as the United Auto Workers union begins strike action in Detroit. The UAW strike directly concern three of the world's biggest vehicle manufacturers, Ford, GM, and Stellantis - known as "the big three." Unions have christened the action "The Stand Up Strike," calling it "our generation’s answer to the movement that built our union, the Sit-Down Strikes of 1937."

So far, all three companies have offered a 20% pay rise to staff in an attempt to end the strike, but the UAW union has opted to decline that offer. The union organizing the strike has outlined a number of demands, with the main focus centering on a 40% pay increase stretched over four years for all of its 140,000 members. While that pay increase may seem drastic, union bosses claim it is comparable to raises executives have been awarded in recent years. Going forward, the union is demanding pay raises are also tied to inflation, which could see an equally significant increase in workers' pay rates going  forwards if recent inflation trends continue. Other demands include limits on how long staff can be categorized as temporary workers and denied union benefits, and the establishment of a four-day working week.
