Grassroots racing, 2017 Dodge Viper Snakeskin ACR Edition, 2018 Porsche 911 GT2: This Week’s Top Photos

The 24 Hours of Lemons and race series like it just may be what saves motorsports. The competitors place fun above competition, and they get dirty building their own cars, the more creative the better. You never know what you might see at a Lemons race, and a wedding is certainly not out of the question.

Photos of the 2017 Porsche Panamera leaked last week, and this week we found out they were the real deal. Porsche officially unveiled the car this week, proving that it is, indeed, a sexy take on the somewhat lumpy first generation. We also learned that it will offer a 550-horspower Turbo model that can rocket to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. Fast and shapely–we like it.

The GT2 has been missing from the 911 lineup for awhile, but a new one is on its way to round out the 991-generation model lineup. This spy shot shows what it looks like.

Volvo is looking to bring sexy back to the station wagon. It will come in the form of the 2018 Volvo V90, a full-size station wagon based on the wonderful S90 sedan. We got behind the wheel this week and managed to snag this shot.

In 2010 Dodge offered a limited run of 31 Snakeskin Edition Vipers. Now, after four the five special edition models it announced last week have already sold out, Dodge is adding the 2017 Viper Snakeskin ACR Edition. Again, 31 will be offered and they’ll all look like this sick snake.

When Carroll Shelby crammed a Ford 260-cubic-inch V-8 into a British AC Ace body, he made history and created the Shelby Cobra. That piece of history is soon going up for auction. You can bid on that very car, CSX 2000, at the RM Sothebys auction at the Pebble Beach Concours this August. For now, gaze upon its majesty.

You may have thought the Pagani Zonda was dead. After all, the Italian supercar maker killed it in 2014 to concentrate on the Huayra. Well, money talks and one lucky and well heeled customer convinced Pagani to build a one-off car just because. That car is the Pagani Zonda MD, so named for the buyer’s middle initials. You probably can’t afford to have your own Zonda commissioned, but you an leer at this beast.
