August 25 - 2016 Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6  The electric Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 2+2 concept produces 750 hp and has a range of over 310 miles.

August 22 - 1954 Porsche 356 Speedster From 1954 to 1958, Porsche built a racier, stripped down version of their 356 sports car.

August 22 - 1964 Eisert Harrison Special Indy Car In 1964, Jerry Eisert was commissioned by Frank Harrison to build a mid-engine car to race at Indianapolis. Inspired by the Formula One Lotus car, the resulting Harrison Special is to this day the oldest remaining mid-engined American Indy car.
