Hyundai pulled the wraps off the new 3-door hatchback Veloster.  The Veloster is powered by a 1.6-liter GDI Gamma engine which produces 138 horsepower and is estimated to get up to 40 miles per gallon on the highway.  Weighing in at only 2,584 pounds, the Veloster is meant to be a sporty vehicle that delivers utility with a fun driving experience without stepping on the toes of the more performance oriented Genesis coupe.

2011 NAIAS: Porsche 918 RSR Photo Gallery

Photos by Zerin Dube

Porsche just pulled the covers off their new 918 RSR at the 2011 North American International Auto Show here in Detroit.  The 563 horsepower gasoline engine pairs with a pair of electric motors that help power the front wheels and brings the total power output up to 767 horsepower.  Power is generated from an inertial flywheel mounted where the passenger seat would normally be, and spins at an incredible 36,000 RPM.

Porsche has not said when the 918 RSR will hit the track, but with Penske, Derek Bell and a few other motorsport legends in attendance, you can be sure that it probably won’t be long.  Enjoy the gallery!
