GTO was a name that was John DeLorean's idea, inspired by the Ferrari 250 GTO, a successful race car. It is an Italian abbreviation for Gran Turismo Omologato
The GTO was an optional package on the intermediate-sized Tempest, called the "Grand Tempest Option, for 1964 and 1965, but from 1966 to 1971 GTO became a separate model.
It was referred to as a "Muscle Car", and also as the "Goat". Seems to be no agreement on why "The Goat".
The Ferrari 458 Italia is a mid-engined sports car produced by the Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari. The 458 replaced the Ferrari F430, and was first officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was replaced by the Ferrari 488, which was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
In the 1950's there were Ford People and Chevy People. The sporty Thunderbirds and Corvettes took this to another level.
So which brand prevailed? Well, if it hadn't been for the Corvette, the Thunderbird never would have been born. And if it hadn't been for the Thunderbird, the Corvette would have died in infancy.

Porsche has been saying that the production version is expected to launch in 2019. Stefan Weckbach, Head of the BEV Model Series at Porsche, recently said that they want to make their first all-electric vehicle feel “like a real Porsche.”
The vehicle is expected to have a range of over 250 miles. The company has previously been talking about a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 3.5 seconds and earlier this year, a Porsche executive said that the Mission E will be able to go long distances at high-speed, like traveling on the German autobahn, or to complete a few laps on the race track.
The vehicle’s charging system might be the biggest feature that the Mission E, now the Taycan, is bringing to market. Porsche is talking about a 800-volt system that should allow a charge rate of up to 350 kW, which could charge the car up to 80% in only 15 minutes.
