We do our best around here to provide sound consumer advice, which is why there shall be no stone left unturned and no consumer unrepresented in our efforts to be fully inclusive of the car-buying public. Let's say for instance you're interested in buying an SUV, but would really prefer it to be a hybrid. Fair enough, there's a decent number of those. Good ones, too.

Now, let's say it really needs to be a shade of reddish orange, or perhaps, orangey-red. Either way, it's gotta be right there in the magma spectrum. OK, this has gotten trickier. Also, you have anywhere between $28,000 and $200,000 to spend, the result of being both the millionaire inventor of some internet widget thing but also really pragmatic with an eye for good value.

About a year ago, Hoonigan expanded its suite of multimedia offerings with the launch of Hoonigan Autofocus. The channel was formed out of a partnership with the wizard of automotive photography Larry Chen and focuses photography's relationship with the cars the cameras are pointed at. Each video features a new ride, and the most recent episode welcomes a custom-built Porsche Spyder with a boxer engine from Japan.

Purists will be thrown into a fit when examining this 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder recreation that is self-classified as "Outlawd Couture." It comes from Los Angeles-based automotive artist and car builder S Klub, who formerly built an outlaw Mercedes-Benz SL300 Gullwing. This build, along with a second 550 Spyder that had only one seat, first appeared at SEMA in 2019 and has since gone up for sale.

Make that four engines in the standard Porsche Cayenne Coupe range. When we wrote about the rumored GT version of the Cayenne Coupe, perhaps called GT5, we mentioned the coming E-Hybrid powertrain as the third engine for the Cayenne Coupe. Porsche just unveiled a Cayenne S Coupe, using the same 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 in the standard Cayenne S. Power figures make the jump nearly unchanged to the rakish sibling, being 434 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque — one fewer pound-foot than in the Cayenne S.

Since the Cayenne S Coupe comes standard with the Sport Chrono package, the hump from zero to 60 miles per hour takes 4.7 seconds. That is 0.1 second slower than the Cayenne S with the Sport Chrono goodies. Apparently that one supplemental unit of torque comes in more handy than we thought. You need to add any of the three Lightweight Sport Packages to the Cayenne S Coupe to match the 4.6-second sprint time. Those Lightweight options add cosmetic upgrades in various materials and colors outside and in, a carbon fiber roof, and 22-inch forged aluminum GT Design wheels. Top speed is 164 miles per hour.
