Porsche Is Smart for Making the 2020 911 Hybrid-Ready Porsche Is Smart for Making the 2020 911 Hybrid-Ready

Through all of the back and forth rumors of the new Porsche 911 going hybrid, I finally got a chance to sit down with Porsche itself to get a straight yes or no answer. And that answer is technically yes, there can be a hybrid 911. The stage is set for one, anyway.

Driving a 1970 Triumph GT6+ Reminds You Cars Once Had Steep Learning Curves Driving a 1970 Triumph GT6+ Reminds You Cars Once Had Steep Learning Curves

Finding first gear in the 1970 Triumph GT6+ was easy enough. Second was where the problem was. I wiggled it around in the housing, searching, searching. Was that second? Nope, still neutral. Wiggle, wiggle. Gave it gas, but no speed happened, just revs. Clutch back in. Wiggle, wiggle.

This Is the Only Way Any of You Nerds Will Be Able to See the Engine in Your New Porsche 911 This Is the Only Way Any of You Nerds Will Be Able to See the Engine in Your New Porsche 911

A common complaint that I have heard about new 911s is that you cannot see the engine at all. You raise the little engine cover in the back and are greeted with—nothing. Just some plastic. You have to remove the whole back end just to work on it. The good news is that there is totally a way to see your engine and it’s…

The 2020 Porsche 911 Is Truly a GT Car That Can Do It All The 2020 Porsche 911 Is Truly a GT Car That Can Do It All

The 2020 Porsche 992 911 is finally here. It continues a relatively gradual evolution since 1963 into a car that’s heavier than the one it replaces, and still turbocharged pretty much across its whole range. The good news is that it remains brilliant to drive, though. Did you expect any less?

The 2020 992-generation Porsche 911 is finally here. It’s longer and heavier than the outgoing generation, because that’s apparently what 911s do now as the new generations roll in: They get bigger. I’m off to Spain now to drive it. What do you want to know about it?

Twelve Badass Details On the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Twelve Badass Details On the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Listen to Over 14 Glorious Minutes of Nothing But Turbocharger Noises

Nearly everything has a turbocharger these days. Crossovers, SUVs, supercars, compacts, sedans. It’s the easiest way to boost efficiency and performance at the same time. While that’s a good thing, it also normalizes turbocharging somewhat. Here’s your reminder that turbos can, in fact, be extremely freaking awesome.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA Got a Hell of a Lot Nicer The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA Got a Hell of a Lot Nicer

Visually, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA isn’t terribly different from the car that it replaces. But it’s bigger, has a nicer (looking) interior, and there’s a lot of tech on board. That and there is, tantalizingly, the prospect of a manual.
