First Look 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4

September 30th, 2015

This is the Porsche that the doubters said would never come to pass. Well, observe the evidence. Check out this video as veteran race driver Randy Probst puts this Canary Yellow masterpiece through its paces on California’s sunny Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway. No, it’s not drag racing but this is one sweet ride. The 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 rides on Pilot Sport Cup radials, giving it massive grip in the corners and the carbon braking system yields some pretty impressive stopping power. A mid-mounted DOHC 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine delivers 385hp to the six-speed close ratio manual transmission, providing ample acceleration. Read More

Drag Racing Huracan vs 918 Spyder

September 9th, 2015

These are two seriously elite supercars and they are lining up head-to-head on a closed airstrip for a one-mile race with a rolling start. Both cars begin rather timidly and proceed gently to 60 mph – then all hell breaks loose! The Lamborghini leaps out in front of the Porsche and scampers down the track at a break-neck pace. Around 140 mph the 918 overtakes the Lambo and leaves him in his wake. As you probably know, the Huracan is Lamborghini’s newest creation. It features all-wheel drive, a 602hp V10 engine, and a price tag of $240k, or about $4,000 Read More

In the words of a famous sugary soft drink character: “Oh, yeah!”  This clip brings us a plethora of exotic beauties from faraway places. This is an event crowded with an unbelievable field of high-end Italian and German sports machines, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsches. You really don’t want to miss this action! In Superseries 1, the Lamborghini Aventador and Huracan square-off for some head-to-head dig action. Both cars are using launch control; therefore they leave the line at precisely the same instant. But wait – before the half-mile mark, the Huracan had pulled ahead by two car lengths. By Read More

This skilled videographer has managed to capture some very competitive head-to-head roll racing on a closed airstrip.

Porsche, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Lamborghini all roll out to challenge Goliath.
