2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Revealed In Scale Model Form?

Porsche was meant to reveal its new 911 GT3 RS this summer but decided to delay its arrival following the discovery of a fault with the 3.8-liter flat-six engine in the 911 GT3 that the 911 GT3 RS was to share, albeit in uprated form. The German automaker is yet to announce when we might finally see the covers come off, but has the car already been revealed… in scale model form?

This photo of a 911 scale model was posted on the website 4WheelsNews and may potentially depict the new 911 GT3 RS. The scale model is clearly based on the latest 991-series 911 GT3, but some unique elements suggest that it is actually representing the more extreme RS variant.

2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Leaked Again

Porsche is in the final stages of development of a more hardcore version of its track-focused 911 GT3, the infamous 911 GT3 RS, and now a photo of the car in scale model form has surfaced. This is actually the second time we’re seeing a scale model of the new GT3 RS, and this time around some extra details can be seen like the vertical section of the front fender vent.

What Can $3.7 Billion Buy? How About 2,969,370 Campaign Ads : It’s All Politics : NPR

Two new reports find that the House and Senate elections will cost about $3.7 billion — up just slightly from the past two election cycles — with outside groups buying their largest share yet of the television advertising.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, in Washington, says candidates and political parties are spending less this cycle, while outside groups are spending more. Its report does not include spending that outside groups don’t report to the Federal Election Commission. One prominent example is a months-long TV campaign against vulnerable Democratic senators by Americans for Prosperity, a 501(c)(4) social welfare group backed by industrialists David and Charles Koch. It and other nonprofits are allowed to keep their donors’ names secret.

The Wesleyan Media Project, based at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, says next week’s election has generated fewer TV ads — down 12 percent from 2010 for the fall campaign — while ad spending is up. That paradox traces back to the changing balance in spending between candidates and outside groups. Federal law gives candidates access to lowest-rate airtime. Outside groups must pay top dollar.

Between the congressional races and the even more costly contests for governor, the Wesleyan analysis puts ad spending this cycle at nearly $1.2 billion so far.

Governor Nathan Deal is leading Democrat Jason Carter 49 to 42, with Libertarian Andrew Hunt getting 3 percent of the vote and 7 percent undecided. In the Senate race, Republican David Perdue leads Democrat Michelle Nunn 48 to 43.

Both Republican candidates receive strong support among Independents, with Governor Deal winning Independents 51 to 38 and Perdue leading 51 to 41. Deal and Perdue are also leading with women voters. If the election were held today, women would vote for Nathan Deal by a margin of 46 to 42 and for David Perdue by a margin of 45 to 43.

The sample size for the survey is 602 active voters taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election.

Perdue Holds Strong Lead in Another New Poll

Yet another new poll, released today, highlights David Perdue’s growing lead against his liberal opponent Michelle Nunn. The results show Perdue ahead of Nunn 48-43, led by Perdue’s “strength with Independents and female voters.” This is one of several recent polls showing Perdue’s surging momentum ahead of the November 4th election.

In reaction to the new poll, Perdue spokesman Mark Bednar said: “This poll is further proof that Georgians want to send David Perdue to the U.S. Senate to lead Washington in a new direction. David Perdue continues to gain momentum because his message of fiscal responsibility and new leadership is resonating across he state. Too many Georgians are struggling under economic policies championed by President Obama and Michelle Nunn. (more…)
