Porsche 911 50th anniversary edition

Few car models can boast a fifty-year lineage, but the Porsche 911 is not just any car. In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of its most famous model range, the German sportscar maker is launching the 911 50th anniversary edition. This rear-wheel-drive coupé is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six rear-mounted engine that can rocket to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds (3.8 seconds in the case of the PDK version) and onto a terminal velocity of 300 km/h. The special edition 911 will be available in limited numbers during Q4 2013 for a cool $125 000.

Nike Flyknit Hyperfeel

For the runner looking for a barefoot feel but with a fair amount of comfort added, Nike has just released their Flyknit Hyperfeel running shoes. It might look like a funky sock with a sole, but the Hyperfeel’s Flyknit technology uppers and a next-gen Free sole should be enough to provide a comfortable glide past opponents. No official release date is set yet.
