  • 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS with Weissach package

    The Weissach package from Porsche turns a good sports car into focused track machine, usually by reducing the weight or improving the aero, or both. Typically, this is a package only offered on the most hardcore Porsche products. We're talking the 918 Spyder, 911 GT2 RS and the 911 GT3 RS. Perhaps down the road however, Porsche could extend the Weissach goodies into other lower-tier models in the family. "I think saving weight makes sense in all cars nowadays," Andreas Preuninger, who heads the development of Porsche's GT models, explained to Digital Trends in an interview published Tuesday...

    Magneto rheological (MR) fluid has some pretty amazing properties. It can change from a low-viscosity liquid to a very stiff, nearly solid substance in milliseconds with the mere application of a magnetic field. Now that technology is heading from shock absorbers to engine mounts, and the first car to get the new mounts is the 2010 Porsche 911 GT3. Why go so far into high technology for a relatively simply engine mount? Because controlling the noise and vibration of the powertrain can improve stability and traction, especially during 'transient torque events' - times when coming off or...
