300 KmPH on the German Autobahn in a pair of Germany's best sports coupes isn't a bad way to spend the day, even when it is raining. Following that up with a day at the Nürburgring is perhaps the best weekend we could ever imagine. MotorTrend's Jethro "DeathRow" Bovingdon and Jonny "LoverMan" Lieberman take these two German four-seat turbocharged …Continue to the full article

This is Just One of the Many Reasons I’m Excited About the Mission E
Every year "Motor Trend" holds their "World's Greatest Drag Race". It's a who's who of supercars in a straight-line shoot-out. Not surprisingly, at least one Porsche is featured each year. However, in the 6 seasons "Motor Trend" has been producing this segment Porsche has only won once (back in 2014 a 911 Turbo S took home the win). That's not …Continue to the full article
Is The Panamera a Proper Porsche? Why Yes It Is, Jonny Lieberman.
Porsche has made a lot of 911s, more than one million 911s in fact. Porsche also made more than 60,000 356s. There were also nearly 200,000 944s, 120,000 914s, 61,000 928s, 150,000 924s, and around 13,000 968s. If we exclude the most recent additions to the lineup, the Panamera, Boxster, Cayman, Cayenne and Macan, the majority of Porsches ever …Continue to the full article
Head 2 Head: 2017 Corvette Grand Sport vs. Porsche 911 Carrera S
It seems the automotive world has found a replacement for the Godzilla vs. 911 rivalry. It's not that Corvette vs. Porsche is anything new, it's just that it seems to be getting more and more attention lately. Between Corvette's near dominance in this season's IMSA Sports Car Championship and Chevy openly trying to lure Porsche buyers to the dark …Continue to the full article
Motor Trend Drives The 911R And Deem It Legendary
On paper, this Porsche seems like it would be a step backward from the GT3 RS. Yes it has the same 500 horsepower naturally aspirated engine, but almost everything else is different. There is a 6-speed manual gearbox, a narrower body and wheel set taken from the GT3. The fenders don't have those crazy louvers, and the rear quarters are smooth where …Continue to the full article
Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car: Porsche Carrera S Squares Off Against the Best
The Porsche 911 family has long punched above its weight. When it launched in the mid 1960s, displacing just 2.0l, the 911 gained a reputation as a giant slayer on the race track. In 2016 the story is very much the same. The new 3.0l Carrera S isn't even the top of the 911 range, yet Motor Trend set it against some of the most fearsome driver's …Continue to the full article
Video: Is The Cayman GT4 A 911 Beater?
This video from Motor Trend is interesting for a couple of reasons. The first thing you'll notice if you're a long time viewer is that "Ignition" has a new host. With Carlos Lago having moved on to Edmunds, Motor Trend has been floating episodes hosted by Jonny Lieberman, Randy Pobst, and Angus MacKenzie until a more permanent host could be found. …Continue to the full article
Track Attack: How Does A 1972 911 Hot Rod Compare To A 918 Spyder?
In the summer of 2014 we showed you Motor Trend's video review of the 918 Spyder at Willow Springs raceway in Southern California. In that video, pro-driver Randy Pobst laid down a 1 minute 23.5 second lap, which was the fastest lap ever on that track for a production car. What they didn't show in that video is that they also had a 50th Anniversary …Continue to the full article
2015 McLaren P1 vs. 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder!
The last Head 2 Head we shared with you compared the Porsche Macan Turbo to the Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG. While fun and interesting, it didn't pack the exotic excitement of this latest episode. Today's hypercar battle is one for the ages: the McLaren P1 versus the Porsche 918 Spyder. Both cars have carbon fiber tubs and body panels. Both have …Continue to the full article
Porsche Macan Turbo vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG
Motor Trend's "head 2 head" video series is usually one of my favorite on YouTube. However, the video below, where Jonny Lieberman travels to the wilds of the Anza Borrego desert with the goal of determining which German SUV is best: the Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG or the Porsche Macan Turbo, disappoints. Not because it isn't well produced or we …Continue to the full article
