I found this spider on my front porch when I was sweeping it the other day. I have never seen one like this before. Anyone have a clue?

i googled it and it states it is an ORB WEAVER, these type of spiders come in all sorts of colours. and there is 3000 species of this kind of spider. they are garden spiders and to be specific on searching for more info type in orange and red orb weaver spider. I just did a generic search on the species. :) hope this helps.
