porsche 718

This is the kind of motor that will get your heart racing if you are 18 or 81. 

With classic styling but plenty of modern speed the Porsche 718 is the new silver arrow that Mercedes left behind. Just look at those classic lines, that three spoked steering wheel and old-school dashboard that just makes you want to drive to Casablanca. This is what motoring should be all about, plenty of heart and a mean engine to match. It would be good to see this thing go around the track, but for now we can enjoy it for the piece of automotive art that it is.
