More power on less fuel, greater efficiency and lower CO2 emissions makeup the framework for Porsche’s “Intelligent Performance” philosophy and are ever present in the all-new 2013 Cayenne GTS. Although the 2013 is the most efficient GTS ever built, it boasts an 8 cylinder 4.8 liter engine producing 420 horsepower, excelling the operator from zero to sixty in 5.4 seconds with a top speed of 162 mph. Additionally, in consideration of the more environmentally conscious driver, Porsche has amazingly engineered the GTS to afford its owner 21 highway miles per gallon. An active all-wheel drive layout and 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission provides an overall world-class driving experience, however, the incredible features of the 2013 GTS are not exclusively located under the hood.

This weekend, Boston’s Logan International Airport expects to nearly finish the first runway in the nation repaved with an environmentally friendly material called warm-mix asphalt. The asphalt is heated to a lower temperature than normal, burning less fuel and emitting less carbon. Airport operator Massport says on this project that means a cut of 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 400,000 gallons of diesel fuel. The last batch of the asphalt will be laid on Runway 9/27 this weekend, though the runway won’t reopen until later this year. The $12.5 million project began in July. Some European airports have used warm-mix asphalt, but it had to pass Federal Aviation Administration testing before Logan could use it.
