TopSpeed Podcast 004: The "Man, We Sound Good" Edition
The TopSpeed.com Podcast is back, and we have new recording equipment! That means we sound better than ever, and to celebrate we talk even longer than ever. Actually that last part was a tiny mistake, but we ended up with a full 90-minute show packed with awesome stuff for you guys. Hope you don’t mind.
In this week’s Weekly Wheels, Mark and Justin had some competing compacts with the Toyota Corolla and the Kia Forte respectively. I came into the fray with the entertainment side of the party in the 2014 Porsche Cayman S.
News stories cover the Golf R Wagon spy shots, Alfa 4C updates, a new special edition car from Hennessey and the death of the Caterham/Renault alliance. We also cover Ford’s plans to recreate a PR stunt from the ’60s and the potential for a 400 horsepower, four-cylinder Porsche.
We had a few questions to go over in the Q/A section thanks to all of you awesome listeners out there including how we got into the business, what cars we think didn’t get enough love in the last decade and we discuss if hybrid is the way to go for supercars.
We wrap up the show with a brand new segment called Drive, Own, Burn. We get a choice of three cars; one we have to own forever, one car we get to drive once, and one car we have to burn outright and never get to touch. To continue with the Hybrid supercar theme, our choices were the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918. Unsurprisingly, none of us quite agree, and Mark and Justin got it wrong.
