Porsche's on a roll, rolling out the 911 variants in the usual blistering cadence. What's coming for this fall's Los Angeles Auto Show? The 911 Turbo Cabrios, of course--top-down 0-60 mph times of 3.1 seconds are yours for just a hair under $200,000.

Sebastian Vettel proved his mettle this weekend at F1's Singapore swing. He dominated the field, posting a 32.6-second win over the next-fastest driver--one Fernando Alonso.
