’21 Chevy Suburban RST

Here’s the upcoming ’21 Chevy Suburban RST, completely undisguised on the street and providing a first look.

The Suburban RST adds a street-inspired exterior design to the fullsize SUV, featuring a unique front and rear treatment. Inside, it is finished with RST-specific seats, which feature contrast-color stitching.

Standard power comes from the 5.3L V8, which packs 355 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. The RST can also be equipped with the 3.0L I6 turbodiesel Duramax engine, which has 277 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines will be mated to a 10-speed automatic.

GM originally planned to launch the ’21 Suburban in mid-2020, but it’s possible that the coronavirus pandemic could delay that timeline.

Porsche 911 GT3

The upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 builds on the grownup image of the 992 but packs more noticeable aerodynamic elements.

New air intakes adorn the nose of the supercar, along with a heavily revised front end. Visible at the rear are über-wide hips, whose eye-catching nature is surpassed only by the complex rear wing and, for the first time, the diffusor below the rear bumper.

The sole transmission should be an eight-speed dual-clutch unit, though Porsche may make a stick available at some point in the successor to the current GT3 Touring, which features a six-speed manual. Also available at some point will be a GT3 Cup racing variant and a hardcore GT3 RS.


Ferrari Portofino

A prototype for the facelifted Ferrari Portofino has been spied undergoing tests in Germany. The model saw the light of day in 2017, so 2021 could be just the right time for a makeover.

While the rear of the car appears to be unchanged so far, the front is definitely different from the latest model. It comes with a new bumper, a new grille and new “bandit” headlights (the latter resembling those of the Ferrari Roma).

Under the hood will be a new 620hp V8 turbo engine equipped with a new Euro 6.2d temp approval, thanks to the introduction of the particulate filter and many other details already seen in the Roma. A new fully digital interior and a new dual-clutch gearbox (transaxle) with eight gears instead of the previous seven should also be part of the game.
