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: Porsche 911 Turbo | Drive it!
Our test driver Christoph Bauer regularly borrows classic cars from the Zeithaus museum in Wolfsburg and takes them out for a spin. All of the vehicles in the museum's collection represent milestones of automotive history. This time around Christoph wants a lean, mean driving machine -- and the Porsche 911 turbo fits the bill perfectly.The car made its debut at the Paris Motor Show in 1974. Initially fitted with a 260 horsepower engine, the 911 turbo got a power Boost in 1977. Thanks to its new intercooling system, the 3.3-liter motor could generate 300 horsepower. As the world's first turbocharged, series production supercar, the Porsche 911 turbo combined power with luxury. And it still impresses over 3 decades later -- rocketing from 0 to 100 kilometers an hour in 5.5 seconds flat.

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!
