This Ultra-Rare 1965 Porsche 911 Can Be Yours: Here’s What We’re Reading Today

1. This Porsche is a literal barn find.

“This 1965 911 has an ultra-rare 300 series chassis number, meaning it is one of the first 911s to roll off the assembly line during the first full year of production.”


2. Apple is releasing a reasonably priced iPad…sort of. 

“The company announced the new product two weeks ago at a fanfare-heavy event in Chicago that emphasized how iPads were especially great for schools since the new $330 version ($300 for those in education) supported the Apple Pencil. I’m not a teacher or a student, but this felt like a big deal to me. The Apple Pencil is widely regarded as the very best stylus solution for the tablet, and I felt swayed. The iPad is simply more useful if you can write on it easily. In the past, the cheapest iPad didn’t support the Pencil—that was an iPad Pro thing—so the added value actually felt valuable. (The Pencil, of course, will cost you an extra $100.)”


3. Apparently, a drink a day will not keep the doctor away.

“It might take less alcohol than we think to damage the heart and shorten our lifespans, suggests a new study published today in The Lancet*. For many, the threshold might be fewer than one drink a day.”


4. James Comey isn’t sure if President Donald Trump was or wasn’t peeing on prostitutes…

‘“I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013. It’s possible, but I don’t know,” Comey told George Stephanopoulos in an interviewed teased on “Good Morning America” Friday.”

5. The first ‘American Animals’  trailer just came out and we’re in.

Rising actors Barry Keoghan, Evan Peters and Blake Jenner star in the genre-bending movie which was picked up after its debut by The Orchard and MoviePass in a $3m dollar deal. The Raw and Film4-produced pic, backed by AI Film, is based on the true story of four teenagers in Lexington, Kentucky who tried to strike it rich by pulling of a $10M heist centered on a library. The Orchard is lining up a June 1 bow in U.S. STX handles the UK-US movie in UK and will release in September.
