Drag Race – Aventador SV vs. 911 Turbo S

July 20th, 2017

What’s not to love about a drag race between a pair of supercars? Nothing – especially if the two cars in question are the Lamborghini Aventador SV and the Porsche 911 Turbo S. As far as we know, the feature cars are in stock trim and are driven by their respective owners. They (the cars, at least) are pretty evenly matched and this should make for an interesting series of contests. In an effort to establish exactly which of these two elite automobiles is superior, this clip actually documents multiple drag racing and roll racing runs. You don’t want to Read More

700HP 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS – Track Testing

July 13th, 2017

This is a unique and well produced video that takes you inside the 2018 Porsche GT2 RS. You are sucked into the functional air intake, through one of the turbochargers, into the engine, and spit out the tailpipe. It’s awesome! Porsche recently unveiled their most powerful and most expensive version of the GT2 RS during one of the most prestigious annual automotive gatherings in existence. In true Porsche style, the car was not simply put on static display but driven aggressively on a closed track. The Goodwood Festival of Speed (Sussex, England) was treated to an awesome display of speed Read More

Nitrous Injected 6.0-liter Porsche

June 22nd, 2017

This is what I call making the best out of a bad situation. When this gentleman’s Porsche Carrera blew up the engine, he was faced with paying a heavy price to replace it with (even) a used Porsche mill. It’s a good thing for him that (only) one aftermarket manufacturer is offering an adapter kit that allows for an LS engine swap. You use the factory Porsche transmission and bolt in the Chevy V6 or V8 of your choice. You would never know that this dreamy little German import is packing a 6.0-liter LQ9 punch. Yes, the engine is from Read More

New Lamborghini S – Test Track

June 16th, 2017

When Lamborghini introduced the Aventador in 2011, it set the world of high-performance sports cars on its ear. Less than a decade removed and the same Aventador was becoming a bit mundane. It was to be expected – with recent advances in speed and technology. Offerings from McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche, and Bugatti – just to name a few – have had the big Lamborghini floundering for a portion of the premium market share. Not being a car company to suffer in mediocrity, Lamborghini has recently introduced the all-new Aventador S; seen before your very eyes in this video. The S Read More

Super Sleeper Impala SS

May 26th, 2017

This video is stacked with awesome looking high-performance automobiles. It documents a car show which took place at Performance HQ in San Antonio, Texas. Performance HQ has a reputation of creating outlandish street and strip cars with optimum performance and reliability in mind. This clip captures what was taking place during their grand re-opening and the crew literally opens their doors to show us some inside information on project cars and customer builds. With the showroom full of unique offerings, the parking lot began to fill up with all kinds of modified transportation. There were exotics, including names like Rolls Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

May 16th, 2017

This is how it’s done in the Golden State. They are rolling them out on the interstate and running them like wildfire! A gathering of cars such as this virtually demands that a race ensue. It matters not where they meet; just that inside the chest of every driver beats the heart of a competitor. This time they meet on the streets – the streets of La-La Land – Los Angeles (Mexico), that is. There are several Nissans (of the GT-R variety), a 2.0-liter Evo (650hp) building 40 psi of boost, a stock (LS2) motor ‘Vette (660hp) with a V1 Read More

$3-Million Street Race – Porsche vs Ferrari

February 23rd, 2017

Hello race fans and drag racing aficionados in particular. Meet Leo from Performance HQ. Leo has a problem of which any car enthusiast would be envious. He owns these two amazing exotic automobiles and he doesn’t know which one is fastest. Let’s take a look as he tries to find out. First of all, I know that the race is taking place at the San Antonio Raceway, but it has all the elements of a street race. Theirs is lots of good natured trash talking, some friendly wagering, and a general lack of traction out of the hole. The first Read More

LS Powered Porsche 911 Carrera

January 21st, 2017

You’ll either love this car or you’ll hate it. To the Porsche purist, this is the ultimate slap in the face but to a street racer, this thing is music to the ear. One thing is certain – whether you love it or hate it – it is one heckuva unique build and a potential street terror. The car started life as a run of the mill 1986 Porsche Carrera RSR with an air-cooled V6 chomping away in the rear. The current owner purchased the car as a complete build from a fellow named Hal McGinnis down in the great Read More

Half-Mile Dig Racing – Audi R8 vs. Porsche 991

December 3rd, 2016

Hello racing fans and automobile enthusiasts of every ilk and welcome to the Shift-S3ctor California Airstrip Attack 2016. This race is between two very capable, virtually stock sports cars from Germany. It takes place on a closed airstrip during a typically sunny (if a bit smoggy) day in Southern California. As you may know by now, the 2017 Audi R8 Plus is akin to the feared Lamborghini Huracan. Since both Audi and Lamborghini are owned by the Volkswagen Group, this should come as no surprise. The 2017 R8 Plus features the most powerful engine that the automaker has ever put Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Porsche 918 Spyder – Really?

October 10th, 2016

This is definitely a drag race because one car gets dragged (to death) the length of the track. As one might expect, a contest between an all-wheel drive 887hp spacecraft and a 650hp rear-wheel drive sports car will easily be won by the spacecraft. Of course, the spacecraft in this scenario is the Porsche 918 Spyder, with its $1-million price tag, and the lesser sports car is the Corvette Z06 at roughly one-tenth the cost of the German monster. The Spyder (it’s more fun when you say it with a German accent) is truly an automotive work of art. It Read More
