Watch Randy Pobst Drive the Mustang Shelby GT500 and Corvette C51 At the Same Time
The Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Corvette are two of America’s most iconic cars. But they’re also two different animals. The Mustang spent most of its career in the pony and muscle car market, while the Corvette was aimed mostly at sports car and grand tourer buyers. With the Corvette transformed into a mid-engined car for the eighth generation, the gap between these nameplate is even bigger now. But which one is the fastest around a track? To find out, MotorTrend took the range-topping Shelby GT500 and the C8 Corvette Z51 to Virginia International Raceway and put 24 Hours of Daytona winner Randy Pobst behind the steering wheel.
Watch the Old Land Rover Defender Keep Up with the New Defender and Jeep Gladiator
Land Rover brought back the 2020 Defender after a four-year hiatus and it is quite impressive. But, the new body and feel gave it more of an urban vibe than the classic off-roader pizzazz that the Defender is generally known for. So, to see how it weighs in the present scenario, the folks at TFL decided to take it off-roading along with the old Defender and the rugged Jeep Gladiator. Can it match its rivals as an off-roader, or has the new Defender become an urban commuter with a just little off-roading DNA left in it?
A RWD Mini Cooper and 502-Horsepower Honda Engine Create the Power-To-Weight Ratio of a Bugatti Veyron
The Mini was conceived by Alec Issigonis to be the ultimate city car, small in proportions but featuring a groundbreaking platform that made it surprisingly spacious on the inside. It sold in over five million copies and is considered one of the most influential designs ever. So good was BMC’s biggest hit that it even made waves in the racing world, both on the rally stages and on the circuits of the world. It is, then, not that surprising that a latter-day Mini with enough mods is capable of putting 500 horsepower to the ground.
Our First Look At the 2022 Toyota GR86 Proves Little Will Change Under the Skin
With more than a year’s worth of leaks and news about the next-gen Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ, we finally learned in early August that Subaru was ending production of the BRZ. Toyota hasn’t commented on its production timetable for the current-gen 86, but we’re pretty sure the current-gens end of production isn’t far off. That has become more than evident now that the first spy video and images of the 2022 Toyota GR86 has surfaced online. Much like the most recent rumors suggest, neither Subaru nor Toyota are changing very much as they shift into the next generation.
Watch the Ford F-150 Raptor Take On An Old-School Ford SVT Lightning
We’ve seen a crazy number of performance trucks in the past, like the GMC Syclone and the Ram SRT-10. There was one offering from Ford as well that got all the enthusiasts pumped up – the SVT Lightning. The truck was sent into oblivion after two generations that spanned a little under 10 years, combined. It came with sedate looks and a powerful engine made to sprint.
Today, the F-150 Raptor covers up for it, but is it as good as the SVT Lightning? StangMode has uploaded a video of both these trucks going against each other on his YouTube channel, and it will answer this question for you.
This Blinged-out Tesla Model X Runs a Quarter-Mile Faster Than a Porsche Carrera GT
Tesla cars have embarrassed some of the most loved supercars on drag strips for a long time now. With every new performance update, things just keep getting better. It’s funny how effortlessly these EVs receive a power bump, when internal combustion engine cars, on the other hand, have to spend a lot of time in the garage and get new parts and other upgrades.
Despite Tesla offering continuous updates, people are not content. Well, that’s the case with every enthusiast. We just can’t have enough. So, this new Tesla Model X went through some old-school faster-off-the-line techniques to breach the 11-second quarter-mile record to become the quickest production SUV in the world right now. How about that!
A Decade Apart: Manual 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S vs. 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S
With every new 911 generation, Porsche doesn’t forget to mention that it is the best 911 to date and equally important, the best 911 it can be at the moment of launch. This, however, doesn’t make past-gen 911s weak, for the simple reason that Porsche wholeheartedly invest all its know-how into its core sportscar, regardless of the age they came to be.
So when Throttle House dropped a video that compares the current 2020 911 to the 2010 911, our interest piqued.
Watch How Well The 2021 Ford Bronco Handles Rock-Crawling

But, being an off-roader, enthusiasts want to see it take on rocks, boulders and the less-beaten paths. Well, now you can. Bronco6g.com uploaded three videos on its YouTube channel that shows the four-door and two-door Broncos on a hardcore off-road trail. This is a glimpse of what to expect from the Ford Bronco when it is in its comfort zone.
S3XY Drag Race Putting the Model 3 Up Against the Model X, Model Y, and Model S

So, it’s not wrong to say that these silent machines are explosive beasts on a drag strip. But, how do they perform when pitted against each other? Throttle House brought the S3XY range – Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y together on a drag strip to see where each model stands within the family. Let the games begin!
Is a 2020 BMW X6 M50i Faster Than Jaguar’s Supercharged F-Pace SVR?
If you told us two decades ago that we’ll have SUVs fitted with bumped-up V-8 engines roaming the streets, able to pull off insane 0-60 figures, we would have sent you home for a nap to cure that drunkenness. Fast forward 20 years and drag racing performance SUVs is becoming the norm, so here’s today’s duel: the BMW X6 M50imeets the F-Pace SVR. Care for a bet?
