Does a Porsche 911 Turbo S Stand a Chance Against a 1000-Horsepower BMW M5?

Does a Porsche 911 Turbo S Stand a Chance Against a 1000-Horsepower BMW M5?

This 1,000-horsepower BMW M5 runs the quarter-mile in just 10 seconds!

When it comes to performance cars, horsepower and torque are usually the only figures we take into account when comparing them. That’s a logical thing to do, but sometimes these numbers can be deceiving. This new video from CarWow brings together a BMW M5 tuned to an insane 1,000 horsepower and a stock Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. Can the Porsche keep up with the beefed-up sedan? Is horsepower the decisive factor here? Let’s find out.

The 1935 Voisin C25 Aerodyne Is The Coolest Car You Probably Didn't Know About

The 1935 Voisin C25 Aerodyne Is The Coolest Car You Probably Didn’t Know About

The Voisin C25 Aerodyne is an aviation-inspired work of art!

The automotive industry had many ups and downs since the automobile became popular in the 1900s. The first major downturn happened in the late 1920s when The Great Depression hit the world. In the United States, the economic depression put many luxury carmakers out of business. In Europe, however, some low-output companies survived, although they eventually went bankrupt after World War II. One such carmaker is Voisin, which was founded by aviation pioneer Gabriel Voisin. This French company produced only a handful of automobiles in the 1920 and 1930s, with the most iconic being the C25 Aerodyne.

Can A Tuned, 490-HP BMW M240i Take On the Porsche 911CS and BMW M3?

Can A Tuned, 490-HP BMW M240i Take On the Porsche 911CS and BMW M3?

BMW M240i proves that looks aren’t everything in a drag race

Sometimes, the best drag races are those that have some form of handicap. Take this race hosted by YouTube channel Track Day, for example. It’s a three-car throw down involving an F80-generation BMW M3 Competition, a 992-generation Porsche 911 Carrera S, and a BMW M240i. The latter is the obvious underdog in this race, but this isn’t your stock M240i that comes into the race with significant modifications, none more important than an engine upgrade that helps the turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine produce more output than both the M3 Competition and the 911 Carrera S. The scales tip differently now, do they? Does the modified M240i have what it takes to beat the M3 Competition and the 911 Carrera S? Let’s find out.

Watch a Ford Galaxie Kick Major Ass At 2020 Goodwood SpeedWeek

Watch a Ford Galaxie Kick Major Ass At 2020 Goodwood SpeedWeek

50-year old race car finally gets its just due

You don’t often see a 3,600-pound 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 participating in any kind of sanctioned race. Even rare is the sight of a Galaxie 500 destroying the competition in a sanctioned race at the 2020 Goodwood SpeedWeek. Driven by 2016 BTCC Championship runner-up Sam Tordoff, the mountain of a Ford tore through a field of classic race cars that included Lotus Cortinas and Mini Coopers as if those cars were battery-operated. It was an incredible display of nostalgic might for a car that, back in its time, was considered too fast for track racing and too heavy for drag racing. More than 50 years after it was launched, the Galaxie 500 finally had its day at the 2020 Goodwood SpeedWeek, and it was glorious to see.

It is actually part car, part motorcycle

Some people acquire retro cars and turn them into glorified garage queens in the wake of a thorough restoration process. Some people acquire retro cars and turn them into hillclimb monsters. Care to guess which way Javi Graña went with his Alpine A110?

Quit Wasting Time And Learn The Real Story Behind the GMC Syclone

Quit Wasting Time And Learn The Real Story Behind the GMC Syclone

This right here, ladies and gentlemen, is the GMC Syclone in all its glory

The GMC Syclone is undoubtedly one of the most bonkers cars ever built by GM. It could whoop a Ferrari’s ass in a straight-line race back in 1991 and just under 3,000 units were produced, all painted black - except for the Marlboro Editions, which were red and white.

In case the Syclone still has the power to unearth some nostalgia for you, here’s a video that will refresh your knowledge on the performance pickup truck.

Is This Lifted, LS-Swapped Mazda MX-5 Miata Cool or a Travesty?

The Miata is a shapeshifter, it can take just about any form

This Mazda MX-5 Miata isn’t just any Miata. Hillcimb racing fans amongst you may recognize this as one of Flying Miata’s most insane projects, a lifted NB Miata built for dirt racing that hides a 455 horsepower LS3 V-8. As you can see here, the car, nicknamed ’Zombie Elvis’, is alive and well and continues to bring many smiles per gallon.

Battle of Silence: 2021 Polestar 2 vs. Tesla Model 3

Battle of Silence: 2021 Polestar 2 vs. Tesla Model 3

Both the cars have their own pros and cons, but it’s up to you to choose which one fits your bill better

The Tesla Model 3 has been around for a very long time compared to the other players in the segment. But, so far, it has emerged the winner almost every single time. Now, however, there seems a true competitor that has what it takes to topple the segment-leader – the Polestar 2. Polestar is trying to disassociate itself from Volvo and to become a strong, standalone performance brand that can become the next Tesla; or rather, the Tesla-killer!

Somehow, It Seems That the BMW i8 Is Better Than the Polestar 1

Somehow, It Seems That the BMW i8 Is Better Than the Polestar 1

These two $150,000 PHEVs have more common than you thought

The Polestar 1 and BMW i8 don’t necessarily occupy segments by themselves, but the truth is there aren’t that many performance-spec, two-door plug-in hybrids that command prices amounting to $150,000. So in the absence of comparing the Polestar 1 and BMW i8 with their respective rivals, the folks at Throttle House decided to skip that exercise entirely and compare both two-door plug-in hybrids against each other.

One is a $148,500 German two-door PHEV with futuristic looks while the other is a $155,000 Swedish two-door PHEV that boasts one of the most beautiful designs of any car in the market. How do they stack up against each other? Let’s find out.

This Time Lapse of a Homemade Bugatti Is Mind Boggling

This Time Lapse of a Homemade Bugatti Is Mind Boggling

What do you do when the car of your dreams is a one-off worth millions? You build a replica yourself, obviously

The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is as much a car as it is a mirage. Born to be raced by gamers in the smash Playstation title Gran Turismo 6, joining many other ’Vision Gran Turismo’ creations from the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, BMW, Nissan, or Citroen, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo somehow transcended the world of gaming when Bugatti actually decided to build a running and driving example of it.

With there only being one of these ludicrous-looking,

Chiron

inspired hypercars out there, crafty mechanic Jack Lee and his team had to make one from scratch and, amazingly, that’s exactly what went down.

Jay Leno Drives the Awesome 1996 Dodge Viper GTS

Jay Leno Drives the Awesome 1996 Dodge Viper GTS

The 1996 GTS is probably the coolest Dodge Viper ever built

Introduced back in 1992, the Dodge Viper remained on the market until 2017, with short breaks from 2006 to 2008 and 2010 to 2013. One of the coolest U.S.-built sports cars, the Viper was discontinued for good in 2017 due to poor sales but mostly because it was unable to comply with new safety regulations. But while the car is dead, the legend lives on and the Viper still enjoys a cult following.

Jay Leno is a big fan of the V-10-powered Dodge and owns not one, but two early Vipers. And he just showcased his 1996 Viper GTS, one of the first coupes built.

VIDEO: Oldsmobile's Rolling Lab From The '80s Was A 300 MPH Beast

VIDEO: Oldsmobile’s Rolling Lab From The ’80s Was A 300 MPH Beast

The Oldsmobile Aerotech proved the worthiness of Olds’ Quad 4 turbo engine

It’s been 16 years since the last Oldsmobile Alero rolled off the Lansing, Michigan plant’s production line thus ending the 106-year-old history of Oldsmobile. 20 years prior, nobody could predict the end was quite so near as the company was trying really hard to re-establish itself among buyers that weren’t the age of your grandfather and it was doing that through technology.

A new, compact DOHC, 16-valve four-banger named the Quad 4 was supposed to lead the offense, and Oldsmobile went to great lengths to showcase just how amazing that powerplant really was. How great? Well, they built the car that still holds to this day the world speed record on a closed course.

710-Horsepower Showdown: McLaren 720S and Ferrari F8 Tributo Throw Hands

710-Horsepower Showdown: McLaren 720S and Ferrari F8 Tributo Throw Hands

You’re going to be surprised how this race turned out

Both carry twin-turbocharged V-8 engines that produce 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Both have seven-speed dual-clutch transmissions. Both are rear-wheel drive. With all these numbers and features nearly identical, the question begs: which of the two is faster in a drag race?

That type of race should be able to create some differentiation between the two, right? YouTuber 888MF sought to find an answer, and like very few people in the world, he was able to bring a 720S and an F8 Tributo to an empty stretch of road for an old-fashion drag race. Who’s the faster of the two?

This Video About the Maserati MC12 Will Remind You Of Better Times

This Video About the Maserati MC12 Will Remind You Of Better Times

One of the most under-appreciated Italian supercars of all time gets the love it deserves

The Maserati MC12 is arguably one of the most underrated supercars of all time. Produced in limited quantities back in 2004 — only 50 were built — the MC12 was a two-seater supercar that Maserati built to comply with homologation requirements so it could enter the FIA GT Championship with a race-spec version of the same car. Sixteen years later, not a lot of people remember the MC12 or even its shared history with the much more famous Ferrari Enzo. Fortunately, Petrolicious’ original series Homologation Specials did not forget about the MC12 and its impact in the supercar world. It doesn’t get as much love and respect as the Enzo, but the MC12 should be remembered better than it has been. It wasn’t the best car to drive, and it was oft-criticized for being too big, but the MC12’s place in the annals of Italian performance cars is secure, or at least it should be.

You Probably Can't Take the Tesla Model S Plaid To The Track

You Probably Can’t Take the Tesla Model S Plaid To The Track

Most Tracks Will Probably Render the Tesla Model S Plaid a Liability Without Some Extreme Modification

With what we’re guessing to be a 130-kWh battery, 1,100 horsepower, and a 0-60 mph sprint of less than two seconds, the Tesla Model S Plaid is – probably – the most extreme production car of the year. It is at least three-tenths of a second faster than the Model S performance and nearly two seconds quicker than the base Long Range Plus model. Add in the 200-mph top speed, and you have the most impressive electric vehicle made thus far and something that could be quite dangerous if left in the wrong hands, and that’s kind of what we’re here to talk about today.

In Short Sprints The Porsche 911 Turbo S Will Always Be Faster Than a McLaren

In Short Sprints The Porsche 911 Turbo S Will Always Be Faster Than a McLaren

The Porsche 911 Turbo is quicker than supercars with better power-to-weight ratios

The new Porsche 911 Turbo S is an impressive car when it comes to performance. At 641 horsepower coming from a twin-turbo flat-six engine, the 911 Turbo S is just as fast as much more powerful supercars, largely thanks to its AWD system and tremendous launch control. But how does it compare to other cars that have similar output and power-to-weight ratio? Well, the McLaren 600LT, for instance, is no match for the German coupe in short sprints.

This New Video Shows How the Porsche Cayman Has Evolved Over the Years

Are you fan of the Porsche Cayman? Here’s all three generations compared

It’s been 24 years since Porsche introduced the Boxster as a smaller and more affordable version of the iconic 911. The roadster was joined by the Cayman coupe in 2005. The Cayman is now in its third generation, and enthusiasts are still debating which one is the best and which one is the purest driver’s car. The folks over at EverydayDriver set out to answer this question by comparing Caymans from all three generations. They’ve test a 987-gen Cayman R, a 981-gen Cayman GTS, and a 982-gen 718 Cayman GTS, rating their stying, performance, and handling.
