And it's designed for space travel.

Sporty six-seater anyone?

Alright alright, not quite. The Porsche vision “Renndienst”, is the latest in a series of concept cars recently revealed by Porsche,  and designed as a "space shuttle" with exciting proportions. With cabin space for up to six persons, Porsche must presumably be targeting the family space tourism sector, soon to get off the ground once travel restrictions are lifted, of course.

With an all-electric drive located in the underbody, Porsche sportiness is also retained thanks to a centrally located driver's seat. Where would you take your family to in something like this?

Of course, if roofless two-seaters are your thing, there's also this Porsche Vision Spyder, inspired by the 550-1500 RS Spyder from 1954.

The Porsche Vision Spyder.

Designed to "further develop the design identity of Porsche and provide a pool of ideas for future details," the concept car is described as sporting a spartan, puristic cockpit. Characteristic radiator grilles over the mid engine, red graphic elements and the suggested fins at the rear add the final exterior touches to this open top.

    Female cyclist hits uncle and leaves him lying in a pool of his own blood

    A heartbreaking post was posted on Facebook about an incident that had happened yesterday (June 16) along Yuan Ching Road.  According to the post, a female cyclist had hit a 68-year-old uncle as he was walking to his hawker stall and left him lying in a pool of his own blood. Passers-by noted that the cyclist was using her handphone prior to the incident and did not have proper lights on her bicycle. The man's daughter wrote a statement regarding the incident, stating that her father had hit his head and fainted upon the impact. He was then promptly sent to the hospital, where his injuries had shown that the impact was huge due to the fast speed of the bicycle.  Continuing her statement, she urged all cyclists to ride at a safe speed along pedestrian walkways and to install lights to alert senior citizens and other pedestrians of their presence.  She ended her statement with a plea for more cycling paths around the area as there are many senior citizens living in the estate. Netizens' reactions Many netizens expressed their well wishes for the uncle in the comments, with some reprimanding the cyclist for not helping an injured senior citizen.  We wish the uncle a speedy recovery too and hope that the cyclist would be brought to justice soon.

    Man causes a long queue by pumping petrol 'machiam' like he in JB

    Remember the good old days where you could bring your whole family across the border and enjoy everything our neighbouring country has to offer? With the affordable prices of petrol, topping up your gas tank before coming back to Singapore was something no one would skip. But there are some people who go a little too far to save a couple of dollars. Like this! 😂 Which brings us to video below. I'm scratching my head as to why this driver is trying to ensure that every cubic meter of fuel is stored inside his car. Given that our petrol prices in Singapore are exorbitant now.  A little bit of Myth busting Myth - Do I really save money if I am able to top up my car to the brim? 🤔 One of the Quora-ist mentions that it is insignificant to have the petrol tank pump to the brim. My personal take on the matter The whole shaking action is unnecessary. Once you hear the nozzle click, it means that the next time you'll have to refuel would be in 5 to 6 days, give or take. Shaking the car does not mean you'll extend that time significantly. Furthermore, over-filling your fuel tank could potentially result in damage to your vehicle’s charcoal cannister, which is part of its vapour recovery or Evaporative Recovery System.   If you really want to save fuel, drive like a saint and don't over-rev your car when driving. Always plan your route ahead and leave the house early so you will not drive like a madman.  Peace out! ✌️

    Smol food delivery cyclist with big bus problems

    Do you know the story of David and Goliath? Well, if you don't, long story short, it's a story of a small boy who defeats a giant man with nothing but a slingshot. We have a Singapore version. Let's take a look at a short clip of a food delivery cyclist engaging in an argument with a bus driver driving a SBS bus. Unlike the David and Goliath story, no slingshots were used but, in true blue Singaporean fashion, lots of pointing and cursing ensued. This incident makes me think of the upcoming movie of Kong vs Godzilla (not a sponsored post. I really want to watch it though). The only difference? Both Kong and Godzilla are comparatively equal in size. This food delivery guy's bicycle pales in comparison to the bus to be frank. My take on this incident With all these dash cam cameras on the road these days, you're bound to end up online if you engage in such negative behaviour. So, what's the point in getting so worked up for? Lucky for the cyclist that this altercation was just a verbal one. Imagine if it had become physical. The internet would 'pang no chance' with this guy. Unfortunately, we cannot hear what the food delivery guy says to the bus driver. You can make your own assumptions but, from the body language, I'm quite sure it's a colourful conversation. "Thank you for giving way" 🤣 - They should put this sign next to the bus driver

    Lexus GS300 doing his rendition of sway dancing while nearly kissing the wall, all with an expired road tax

    You know, usually when I think of swaying side-to-side, I think of something like this.  Side-to-side motion, everyone looking good and enjoying themselves. However, when it comes to our local roads, swaying side-to-side usually means this.... Yup. Someone new is getting their 15 minutes of fame today. First of all, a Lexus GS300? I'm giving you props for that as I personally quite like that car. After all, a creamy 3.0-litre V6 from Toyota producing 245bhp and 310Nm of torque in something that comfortable is nothing to sneeze at. What I unfortunately cannot commend you on is your driving, because not only is this Lexus swaying back and forth plus in and out of their lane, they damn near kissed the wall as well.  Looks like the Lexus just barely missed the wall too, the lucky bugger. My fellow motorist, if you are feeling rich and dare to risk damage to your car like that, would you mind donating it to me instead. There are a lot of things I would do with that money, starting with not driving like you so I wouldn't have to risk expensive bodywork to my car. Seriously, if you're tired or unable to drive for whatever reason, DON'T DRIVE. Do you know that you can be just as complicit for tired driving just as you are for drunk driving? When you are tired, your reactions are slow and dulled, and you are unaware of what's going on around you, thus making yourself a danger not only to yourself, but also to other road users. Research has shown that driving while tired is almost as good as driving under the influence of alcohol. Either way, it's not going to end well for you because you aren't in full control of your vehicle, making you even more susceptible to other users on the road.  But, there is still one more thing with this Lexus. How is it possible to not realise that your road tax has been expired for over 3 months? Either you have ignored all the notifications sent you with regards to this issue, or you are just plain ignorant and refuse to pay your dues. Whatever it is, Lexus driver, due to your appearance online, people are reminding you that your road tax has expired a really long time ago, and this should be enough prompting for you to get your road tax renewed.  Being a considerate driver is more than just signalling, not road hogging, and having good road manners. It also entails not putting the other road users around you in danger because you are unable to drive properly, thus causing more danger not only to yourself but everyone around you on the road. It's already stressful enough to drive in Singapore. Don't give yourself a reason to end up on this blog even though we do enjoy writing about your stupidity!
