This Chevy Camaro ZL1 Wants to Beat the Porsche 911 Carrera S, But Can It?
The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is arguably the coolest GM-made muscle car you can buy nowadays. It packs a big, supercharged V-8 engine and comes with a whopping 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque at the rear wheels.
With that kind of power, the Camaro ZL1 packs more oomph than many sports cars out there and it even comes close to entry-level supercars. But can it actually compete with a full-fledged sports car beyond the horsepower war? The folks over at Throttle House wondered the same thing and brought together a Camaro ZL1 and a Porsche 911 Carrera S.
This Is The Most Efficient Classic Land Rover Ever Made
What started as guilt-trip driving around in an oil-burning-engined car to access the innermost parts of Australia resulted in a start-up that now converts, sells, and rents electric Land Rovers. Australia-based Jaunt Motors recently converted an old diesel Land Rover into an electric car, the reason behind it being to create an environment-friendly four-wheel-drive vehicle. The yesteryear SUV now comes with electric motors and Tesla batteries powering it. Is this the best way to enjoy classic, hardcore SUVs without feeling guilty about harming the environment?
The Tesla Roadster Will Try to Straighten The Nürburgring in 2021
The news surrounding the Roadster has surely gotten us frustrated at some point or the other. It was unveiled in 2017 and was expected to hit the roads in 2020, but Tesla made it clear that the Roadster is not its priority and it will arrive later.
Although its arrival date is pushed to 2022 for now, we do get constant updates about it every now and then. This time, it comes from none other than the CEO himself about the Roadster going to Nurburgring. Elon Musk confirmed on Twitter that the Roadster will hit the tarmac on the Green Hell next year. From what we know already, can it set a record?
In Short Sprints The Porsche 911 Turbo S Will Always Be Faster Than a McLaren
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.

We Don’t Know Why, But Kia Is Doing Stunts with the new K5 (Optima) Sedan
For the 2021 model, Kia redesigned the Optima inside out and gave it a new moniker as well – K5. The South Korean automaker is marketing this revised package as a sporty sedan, and perhaps, that explains the reason behind this new video.
Kia released a short forty-second clip that shows the K5 doing a flat-spin. It looks like the automaker wants to break the association of the repackaged sedan as just an executive car used by owners to be chauffeured around and more like the car you can also have fun with over the weekends.
Le Mans 2020 News Roundup: Peugeot and ByKolles Set To Build Hypercars, IMSA Releases Final LMDH Rules
The 88th running of the mythical 24 Hours of Le Mans, the world’s most famous endurance race, may not have been the most exciting of the lot. The much-anticipated rain failed to make an appearance and the classes we expected to put on a show for us hardly did.
So, while the race itself can be considered a letdown, the news that dropped on the build-up to Saturday’s and Sunday’s showdown have been particularly interesting. We now know more about Peugeot’s LM Hypercar program, as well as ByKolles’, and more details have emerged about the upcoming LM Daytona Hybrid ruleset. Read on to also find out whether or not a hydrogen-fueled future is still on the cards at Le Mans and also to find out more about Toyota’s upcoming halo hypercar.
Would You Buy This Custom Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Convertible for $95,000?
The current Dodge Challenger is built on a really old and dated platform, but this hasn’t stopped it from competing on a solid level with the more modern Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. That’s because Dodge designed high-performance versions such as the Hellcat and the Demon. However, there’s one field where the Challenger can’t compete: the convertible market. Although the original was available as a cabriolet, Dodge didn’t not create a drop-top version of the third-gen Challenger. But if you’re dying to drive one, Fair Oaks Motors is selling an after market conversion. The good news is that it’s based on the cool SRT Hellcat and it retails for less than $100,000.
Nissan Is Still On the Fence About What the 2023 Nissan GT-R R36 Will Be
The current Nissan GT-R, while old as hell at this point, is still one dominating car, the likes of which very few cars from mainstream automakers can touch. With the reveal of the Z Proto and the 400Z’s impending launch in 2022 or 2023, Nissan also has to plan out the next GT-R, which is allegedly scheduled to launch in 2023. How does an automaker push a car that’s already over the top – one that can lay waste to an icon like the Porsche 911 – even higher? Well, as it turns out, Nissan’s looking at any and all technology to ensure that the R36 GT-R will be one of the complete and capable performance cars on the planet.
2021 Mazda CX-30 Turbo

The Latest Report on the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ Will Piss You Off
We’ve been talking about the next-gen Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ since they were confirmed back in February 2019. A year after that confirmation, we learned that the 86 would get a new name, would feature a turbocharged Subaru engine, and would shift into premium territory. More recently, in March of 2020, a new leak hinted that the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ would be making their debut soon. A new report, however, has expressed that a lot of what we’ve learned isn’t true at all, and that’s very bad news for the next-gen BRZ and 86.
The Ford F-150 Hybrid Makes the Ram 1500 Hemi Hybrid Look Bad in Towing Racing
Ford made us wait for the hybrid truck for a long time. It was in news earlier this year for offering a pathetic range, but Ford somehow managed to kill the news. When the company unveiled the 2021 F-150, the hybrid was showcased, and it showed a lot of potential. Although the truck is still some time away, we have finally gotten to see how it performs in the real world.
A video was uploaded on YouTube by “F150gen14” that shows the 2021 F-150 Hybrid take on the Ram 1500 Hemi E-torque in a towing drag race. If this video is a testament to the truck’s performance, then the hybrid mill will make for a large chunk of 2021 F-150 sales.
