We Have A Looking Glass Into the Ferrari Portofino’s Future, and Something Big is Coming

New Evidence Suggests That a More Powerful Ferrari Portofino is Coming in 2021

A recent filing with the Environmental Protection Agency hints that Ferrari is planning a new model, which is right now only known as the “2021 Ferrari F164 BCB”. At a glance, this probably doesn’t tell you anything, but Ferrari fans and enthusiasts will tell you the F164 is the internal model code for the Portofino. With fuel economy figures for the 2021 Ferrari Portofino already submitted and a second submission for the “Ferrari F164 BCB”, we’re willing to bet there’s a new model on the way. This is what we know about it.

Prepare For Your Mind to Be Blown as You Watch a Jeep Trackhawk Take On a Lamborghini Urus

Can the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk defeat the Lambo Urus on the drag strip?

SUVs used to be all about utility back in the day, but now they’re also available in high-performance trims. The Lamborghini Urus is one of finest examples out there, but companies like Mercedes-Benz and BMW build their own beefed-up haulers. When it comes to American oomph, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is just as exciting. But could it outgun the mighty Urus on the drag strip? Hennessey Performance also wanted to find out and staged a two-round race between them.

This is Probably What the Lamborghini Diablo Would Look Like if it Was Designed Today

This is Probably What the Lamborghini Diablo Would Look Like if it Was Designed Today

But then again, would it be a good idea to modernize the Diablo?

Design has always been a big deal at Lamborghini and the brand’s DNA is best reflected in the audacious styling cues flaunted by its supercars. We’re not including the Urus here, although for a performance SUV, it certainly looks spicier than anything that’s out there at the moment.

That said, do we really need a Lamborghini Diablo adorned with modern design elements?

You Just Might Be Able to Get a RWD Audi R8 In the United States Again

The RWD Audi R8 soldiered on in Europe and now it looks like it’s coming back to the U.S.

Remember back in 2018 when Audi released the Audi R8 V10 RWS in a limited production run of just 999 examples? It didn’t last long here in the States, but Audi kept it as a main part of its lineup over in Europe. Now, three years later, a new listing on the EPA’s fueleconomy.gov website hints that it’s making a comeback to the U.S. Market in both coupe and convertible form.

The Porsche Showdown You’ve Been Waiting For: A 911 Turbo S vs Taycan Turbo S

911 and Taycan star in the ultimate Porsche Turbo S drag race

It’s 2020 and Porsche has two incredible Turbo S models in showrooms. One is the 911 and the other one is the Taycan. They are entirely different cars. While the 911 Turbo Scomes with actual turbochargers, the Taycan is an all-electric car, so the "Turbo S" badge is there just to keep things familiar. But they are the range-topping versions of their respective lineups and both are impressively quick. Porsche’s official ratings put them on par from 0 to 60 mph at 2.6 seconds. But which car is quicker in a quarter-mile race? Let’s find out with CarWow, which recently put together a drag race between the two.

You Absolutely Have to Check Out Germany’s Oldest Street-Legal Car - 1894 Benz Victoria

This 1894 Benz is the great-grandfather of the modern automobile

The modern era saw the automobile break serious benchmarks. We can now buy supercars with more than 1,000 horsepower that can hit top speeds of more than 300 mph. But the early days of the automobile were much slower. Meet the 1894 Benz Victoria, one of the world’s first road-legal automobiles.

10 Fastest Cars To 60 MPH Ranked Fastest to Slowest

10 Fastest Cars To 60 MPH Ranked Fastest to Slowest

These are the 10 quickest production cars from 0 to 60 mph!

Just like top speed, 0 to 60 mph acceleration is one of the key aspects of a performance car. As a result, automakers have been competing to improve and even set records for these figures for decades now. While most supercars were’t capable of hitting 60 mph in less than three seconds 20 years ago, newer examples will do it effortlessly.

And new technology also enabled some sedans and SUVs to hit that magical benchmark in less that three clicks. Compiling a list of the 10 quickest cars to 60 mph is a bit tricky since many of these cars come with claimed manufacturer times that have yet to be tested, but no matter how we twist it, the world’s 10 fastest cars reach the benchmark in 2.6 seconds or less. Here’s our own ranking from quickest to slowest.

This is How the Porsche 997 GT2 RS Stacks Up Against the 991 GT2 RS

This is How the Porsche 997 GT2 RS Stacks Up Against the 991 GT2 RS

This 911 GT2 RS comparison reveals how different the 997 and 991 really are

Born from Porsche’s need to homologate its cars for GT2 class racing, the 911 GT2 debuted in 1993, when it was based on the 993-generation 911. A twin-turbo flat-six model since day one, the GT2 was updated to 996 specs in 2001 and then to 997 specs in 2007. In 2010, Porsche came up with an even more aggressive version, the GT2 RS. Rated at 612 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, it was Porsche most powerful car for the 2011 model. A follow up came in 2018 with the 991-generation, this time around with 690 horses and 553 pound-feet of torque on tap. However, the 991 GT2 RS lost the manual transmission. The latter is by far the most impressive GT2 RS built to date, but is it actually much better than the 997 model?

Car for Sale: Amazingly Rare, RHD, 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV

It may, occasionally, catch fire but, otherwise, it’s amazing

Lamborghini is known for making some of the world’s most outlandish cars. The Aventador is arguably the last of the old-school greats, a big, heavy supercar with a naturally aspirated V-12 engine positioned behind the seats and its tiny brother, the Huracan, has been a steady seller for years.

But Lamborghini wasn’t always hell-bent on making supercars with its first cars being laid-back grand tourers. It all changed, however, when the Miura arrived. And then, while everyone was still wiping off their drool, Lamborghini struck again with this, the Miura SV.

This SUV is powerful, fast, and all set to raise ‘Hell’ with 710 horses under the hood

The third-gen Dodge Durango has been on the market for almost a decade, and now Dodge has instilled it will Hellcat power. With 710 horses in a three-row family SUV, Dodge has put the Durango on a pedestal and has taken the center-stage in the segment. The Durango is now the most powerful factory-built SUV on the planet.
