vintage! The VW-Porsche 914 | drive it!

The moon landing was no doubt the most pioneering event of 1969. But what Volkswagen and Porsche came out with that year also looked to many sports car lovers like something out of this world. The VW-Porsche 914 polarized people -- and still does today. Some consider the car a rotten compromise, others a true maverick. Still the numbers speak for themselves -- some 120-thousand 914s were built, making it the first mid-engine car to rack up six-digit sales figures.

vintage: Mercedes C111 | drive it!
More than forty years ago, car lovers the world over watched as the Mercedes C 111 rounded the track. Presented in 1969 as a two-seater with a fiberglass body and Wankel engine under its hood, the C 111 created a real stir in the motor world. True to the Mercedes motto"only the best is good enough,"it was developed almost to the point of going into series production.The C111 was widely praised for its unusual design, but the 1973 oil crisis blocked it from getting onto the road. The Wankel engine was thirsty, not thrifty, so the car was sent out to the track instead. drive it! recalls a much-loved model that never made it into the showroom.





examine it! 60 Years of the VW Camper Van | drive it!
In the 1950s and 60s, Germans started flocking to Italy on holiday in their cars. Back then, Volkswagen introduced a VW Bus complete with camping box that was ideally suited to the trip.For sixty years, VW's Bulli vans have been much loved--and are also available as camper vans. drive it! turns back the clock and takes a trip through the Alps in the original camper van model.





Vintage! The VW Beetle | drive it
It sounds a bit strange for a popular family car like the Volkswagen Beetle to be outfitted with a roll bar, bucket seats and a racing harness. But the first souped-up VW Bugs hit the roads in Germany as early as 1951.Drive it! got a chance to take a specially-tuned, vintage rallye Beetle out for a spin - and discovered that roll bars, bucket seats and racing seat belts are more than welcome in a Bug that can do 170 km/h.





drive it!: The Motor Magazine | drive it!
An SUV with a fuel consumption of just six liters per 100 kilometers? Mercedes wants to make that possible with the third generation M-Class. We also compare the Citroën DS4 with the Alfa Romeo Guiletta. And the driverless car: how driving assistants are taking over. present it! The Next Generation Mercedes M-Class Mercedes is introducing the new generation of its M-class series. The automaker has traditionally been behind the curve when it comes to eco-friendly technology, but they want to change that now.The new M-class is expected to consume 25% less fuel than its predecessor and it will meet European emissions standards too. All the gas and diesel engines have been redesigned with seven-speed gearboxes - and they, too, consume less fuel, thanks to the start-stop function. The new M-class resembles both the CL luxury convertible and the E-Class, but all in all it's kept the traditional M-Class look. Drive It! takes the new car out for a spin. compare it! Citroën DS4 and Alfa Romeo Giulietta Italian and French carmakers have style down to a tee, from the cut and form to the fabrics and colors. But what about the technology?We compare the Citroën DS4 and the Alfa Romeo Giuletta. Both carmakers want their designs to be different and eye-catching, but we take a closer look at just how they drive, and how comfortable they are inside with our seat test. inside it! Driving Assistance Systems Just a few years back, driving assistant systems were only reserved for luxury cars. But now you can find the specialized programs in all sorts of new cars, in almost every segment and class.These systems can help you park, pass other cars on the road or even turn night vision into day. Drive it! tests three cars, from the compact, mid-sized and luxury segments. We also visit an engineer in the city of Aachen who shows us a car that drives itself. Are drivers even necessary anymore? We find out. spot it! Best of British Logos This time Drive it! takes a closer look at the logos of English automakers. Bentley, Rolls-Royce and Jaguar are synonymous with luxury, and their trademark logos are as well-known as the cars they adorn. But what's really behind Bentley's winged 'B'? Why did Jaguar choose the big cat as its symbol? And who is the mysterious woman that inspired Rolls Royce's iconic hood ornament the "Spirit of Ecstasy", also known as the "Flying Lady"? vintage!

Porsche 914-6 Done Right
One of the prettiest Porsche 914-6s. Done with care and style. While the 914 was once reviled, the 914-6 has always been embraced as a true Porsche. Still for purists of the day, only a 356 or a 911 would do. However, the Porsche 914-6 has now taken its place as one of the must-have Porsches for collectors. They're great for autocrossing, touring, and now even for concours.

This Porsche 914-6 Is Forgotten Only by Those Who Don't Know
After expressing an interest in racing, saying it "looked like fun," Mr. Jack Griffin found himself strapped to a race car contesting the 12 Hours of Sebring. Sure it was his first time sitting in a proper race car, but he had four days of training in a Nissan 280ZX at Bondurant a week or so earlier. In spite of his ample experience he found himself crunched against one of Sebring's concrete barriers only fifteen laps into his stint. Fortunately, he's had better luck with this 1970 Porsche 914-6 that he has now owned for thirty-eight years. Even though he'd been looking for a 911 (and has since owned several), he has completely fall for its light, quick manner and very predictable, solid handling. And while he doesn't consider the Porsche beautiful, Jack does think it looks "interesting" and loves the rarity. It may not be as popular as the 911, but this 914-6 ensures that the model, far from forgotten, will grow in prestige. Drive Tastefully® http://Petrolicious.com http://facebook.com/Petrolicious
