Porsche revealed some revised specs for its upcoming 918 Spyder supercar, upping the previously stated 795 horsepower to a total output of 887 horsepower. Other key specs include a 0-62 mph time of 2.8 seconds and 0-125 mph of 7.9 seconds. Porsche also detailed the vehicle's systems and let a select few journalists drive production-spec prototypes.

The new HSV Gen-F range has been revealed with serious performance and styling upgrades. A range-topping GTS model features the same supercharged LSA powertrain as the Camaro ZL1 with 580 horsepower and 545 pound-feet of torque. We're hoping this supercharged sedan comes to the U.S. as a range-topping Chevrolet SS model.

Acura confirmed the upcoming NSX hybrid sports car will be designed, engineered, and manufactured in the U.S., with production taking place in Ohio. Acura told us the key to the NSX's performance will be its hybrid system, which is being dubbed the Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive System (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD). No performance specs have been provided yet, but Acura is promising one of the best driver experiences in the luxury sports car segment.
