World premiere of the Porsche 963 at Goodwood Festival of Speed
The racing vehicle that was unveiled on Friday 24 June at Goodwood in England flies the typical Porsche motor racing colours: white, red and black. In the cockpits of the 500 kW (680 PS) racers, experienced and championship winning prototype drivers are paired with seasoned specialists from Porsche's works driver squad.
After Race-2, Brad Horstmann (Foreign of Beverly Hills) had one more reason to celebrate on the podium at Misano. As well as the track win, he also sealed the Ferrari Challenge North America – Coppa Shell title at the end of a hard-fought season. The US driver’s season rose to a crescendo, hitting the mark in the last five races. “It couldn’t have been a better weekend. To win the final ranking, I needed one more point than my rival [Kevan Millstein, ed] and instead, I got the maximum: two poles, two fast laps in the race and two wins. I couldn’t have done more”.
The Nissan Qashqai is breaking new ground: e-Power will make its debut in the compact crossover SUV in late summer 2022. The unique electrified drive system is coming to Europe for the first time. As part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, it points the way to electromobility and makes journeys just as pleasant as they are efficient. The drive system, specially tailored to European drivers, combines two Nissan strengths: advanced battery and motor technology as well as innovative combustion engines with variable compression ratios. This combination optimizes fuel efficiency without sacrificing driving pleasure. This is Nissan's response to the typical driving behavior of crossover owners: more than 70 percent drive predominantly in urban and suburban environments - and compromise on driving pleasure in favor of environmental protection. e-Power puts an end to that.
