2013 Racing One Ferrari 458 Competition

As if the 458 Italia was not race ready enough, the Italian automaker decided to enhance its performance by introducing the 2013 racing one Ferrari 458 Competition version.
The racing one team has come up with an aerodynamics package combining higher output with improved balance. It also provides for a better and broader wheel-tire combination.
Another distinct aspect of the racing one Ferrari 458 is that its light weight, just 2,690 pounds as opposed to the production model at 3,935 lbs.

Engine & Performance
Obviously, the main thrust of the racing one Ferrari 458 is under its hood, where you will find a 4.5 liter, V8 engine capable of delivering 620 horsepower.
The car features variable traction control paired with a 7 speed racing gearbox with a Getrag rocker switch. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds, with an estimated top speed of 200 mph.
As mentioned above, the 458 Competition's performance has much to do with aerodynamics. This is made clear by its exterior that include a new front spoiler, side skirts, and a new rear spoiler and wing as well.
The front air intake displays the proud Ferrari steed in its center and the hood features a huge reverse hood scoop for air flow. The headlamp compartment runs vertically towards the windshield.
The profile view is mostly wheels, with a low stance and bubble-like roof line swooping front to back.
The new rear wing dominates the vehicles rear, with small cylindrical taillights and centered dual exhausts at its bottom.
A glimpse inside is what you would expect of a race car. A heavily padded steering wheel is surrounded by red a blue function buttons. The Ferrari logo makes another appearance at the center.
Prominent is a performance display screen which sits where the speedometer and tachometer are normally located.

2015 Porsche 911 Targa

The 2015 Porsche 911 Targa was introduced by the German sports car company in 2014. It was presented at Detroit's North American International Auto Show.
The car represents the most recent in the long line of versions of Porsche's storied 911 brand, but contains a number of innovations. In particular, this is the first 911 to be combined to highly technologically advanced roof technology with the Targa idea that has served the company so well over the years.

* Targa 4
Engine & Performance
There are two six-cylinder engines for the 2015 model. The basic Targa 4 model offers a 3.4 liter, 350 horsepower engine that takes the car from 0-62 mph in just under five seconds and on to a maximum speed of 175 mph.
The more powerful Targa 4S iteration of the car increases the power to 3.8 liter 400 horsepower engine. An advanced Sport Chrono/PDK trim, this 911 can hit 184 mph and perform the 0-62 mph sprint in 4.4 seconds.
Carbon dioxide emissions are around the 225 g/km mark, while gas consumption runs at 25 mpg. The car is fitted with all-wheel drive.
New Technology
The underlying concept for the Targa models has always been seen in its window and pillar designs, and these remain broadly the same. There is no C-pillar, with the rear window instead wrapping around.
Above the front seats is a section of roof which can be removed to give the car a semi-open feel. The B-pillars are also gone, replaced by the wide bar that has always been a Targa feature.
However, driver convenience has been greatly increased with the introduction of a power-operated movable section; this can be operated by a simple push of a button.
Exterior & Interior
The new 911's dashboard maintains the classic look of previous versions, with a 4.6-inch color screen being added to the five standard dials, including center-mounted tachometer.
The console, which slopes forward, allows easy access to important controls including roof operation.
Black fabric is used to line the interior of the Targa bar and roof, and there is space for the detachable part of the top to be stowed behind the rear seats.
The rear window has been designed to allow the maximum possible amount of light into the car's cabin.
