In this post, we’ll be discussing Redline’s picks from the recent New York auto show.


Best Production Car: Porsche 911 Speedster

There were a number of excellent new debuts at this year’s New York show, however one stands out above the rest: the new 911 Speedster. With the same 4.0-litre flat-six as the outgoing GT3, it can push its drop-dead-gorgeous body along at a staggering rate, revving all the way up to 9000rpm.
