2013 Subaru BRZ Review - Lightweight Sports Car
Alex takes a 2013 Subaru BRZ for a spin to determine whether Subaru's formula for a lightweight rear wheel drive coupe would be as fun as it looks, and is it a driver's car? The question lies with the power plant, "is 200 Hp enough to still be able to have fun?" Big thanks to Andrew and Eric Kim for lending the car to us and helping us shoot the video!

The 450 HP Crawford Performance Turbo BRZ - /TUNED
We love the FRS and BRZ twins; they offer an approachable limit of performance and phenomenal dynamics in an affordable package. And we learned earlier this season that a bolt-on turbo kit will add to the FRS's performance without taking away from it's character. But what happens when you double the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's torque? We find out.

2014 Porsche Cayman S! Is the Lightest Porsche Now the Best Porsche? - Ignition Ep. 73
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of the newest iteration of Porsche's Cayman line, the 2014 Porsche Cayman S. After some twisty road driving, Carlos meets up with pro driver Randy Pobst at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to discuss the capabilities of the new Cayman on the track. It's track ready, balanced, and can go from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds... but is it worth it's fully loaded six figure price tag? First previewed on its Boxster platform-mate, and shown at last year's Los Angeles Auto Show, the new Cayman looks more aggressive than its predecessor. From the 918 Spyder-aping looks to the scalloped air intakes on the doors to the silicone-injected hips, the car looks buffer. It's larger, too. The wheelbase has been stretched by 2.4 inches, while the overhangs on either end have been shortened by 10mm. Overall length is only up 0.1 inch. The track has been widened 40/12mm front/rear. Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend
