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.

present it! The Next Generation Mercedes M-Class | drive it!
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.

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.
