Porsche has discreetly revealed the upcoming Cayman GT4’s muscular rear end in a promotional video that highlights the restoration of an early 901.

The GT4 is only visible for a few seconds but that’s enough time to confirm that it gains a sizable body-colored rear wing designed to provide a substantial amount of downforce. A model-specific suspension setup will make the track-focused GT4 lower than a stock Cayman while fender flares will make it noticeably wider. Large alloy wheels wrapped by ultra-sticky tires will add a finishing touch to the race-ready look.

Although Porsche is keeping official technical details under wraps for the time being, an earlier report indicates that power for the GT4 will come from a flat-six engine with a displacement of either 3.4- or 3.8-liters. The mill will send anywhere between 380 and 400 horsepower to the rear wheels, allowing the Cayman to reach 62 mph from a stop in a little over four seconds.

An enthusiast-friendly six-speed manual transmission will come standard and a quick-shifting six-speed dual-clutch PDK gearbox will be available at an extra cost. Upgraded brakes on all four corners will keep the cavalry in check.

The Porsche Cayman GT4 will greet the public for the first time next March at the Geneva Motor Show. Production will begin in Porsche’s Weissach, Germany, factory shortly after the show and the first cars are expected to land on dealer lots by the end of the summer.

Why your EV’s voltage matters, and what it means for your car’s charging speed

Electric cars are slowly, but surely becoming commonplace, and they introduce a whole new generation of specifications that are worth caring about. Range is an obvious one -- but there's another metric that has a major impact on the overall experience of owning an electric car: voltage.

You'll often see the voltage of an electric car's battery pack touted in advertising. Hyundai, for instance, is proud of the 800 -volt battery in cars like the EV6 -- that's double the voltage of the 400V battery in the Tesla Model Y.

Why you should buy the Milwaukee M18 Inflator
First and foremost, the Milwaukee M18 Inflator provides an easy way for you to inflate your tires in a pinch or awkward situation. It is particularly great for the tires of riding lawnmowers. They tend to be awkward to get to the gas station or other place where you traditionally inflate tires and would be a pain to hand inflate. Usage of the machine is simple. Insert an M18 Milwaukee battery, set the desired PSI for the deflated tire, connect to the tire and wait until it is done inflating. The Milwaukee M18 Inflator will stop pumping air automatically once the ideal PSI is achieved. When you're done, the Milwaukee M18 Inflator is small and easy to tuck away, being about the size of a lunchbox.
