Proof that the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S is unbreakable
On a SoCal runway used by General Patton to train soldiers for WWII, we
line up the turbo for the first of 50
back-to-back launches. Porsche's PR man called this test "abusive." We
think it's a fitting tribute to the 911's 50th anniversary. The turbo, however, does not do 50 launches. It does
61, because we get woozy from acceleration and lose count. Read the rest of

2013 Infiniti M Hybrid vs Lexus GS 450h 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Infiniti M35 Hybrid and Lexus GS
450h are both luxury hybrids that not only directly compete but also put a
premium on luxury and performance. Not only do these two Japanese luxury
sedans both have a 3.5L V6 engine and a electric hybrid powertrain, but
they also are both also rear wheel drive and they both have over 300
combined horsepower. So the question
is a simple one; which of these two premium hybrids is a better buy? To be
honest we are actually just as curious to find out which one is faster from 0-60 MPH. Watch out this TFLcar
Mashup review to find out.
2012 Cadillac CTS versus Infiniti M56x All-Wheel-Drive Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Cadillac CTS Sport wagon and the
Infiniti M56 both come with all-wheel-drive. The Cadillac's Borg Warner
system "uses sophisticated controls and algorithms to augment vehicle
handling and traction by optimally using grip at both the front and rear
wheels," according to Cadillac. It can shift up to 100% of available torque
to the front axle if needed.
The 2012 Infiniti's M56x All-Wheel-Drive system is designed "specifically
for a front engine/rear-wheel drive biased setup. 0 to 50 percent of the
power can be sent to the front wheels for better control. The active brake
limited slip differential can shift power side to side. The system uses an
advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes
torque to the wheels (0:100 up to 50:50 front to rear) according to road
and driving conditions." according to Infiniti.
So which is better up Lick Skillet Road (America's steepest country road)
when it's muddy, wet and slick? Watch the video to find out in this
All-wheel-drive mashup review.
2013 Infiniti IPL G convertible 0-60 MPH Drive and review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Infiniti IPL G convertible is one of
the most expensive and fastest Infiniti models that you can purchase today.
Just like the letters AMG, M and RS, the letters IPL mean that Nissan as
taken a stock Infiniti G37 hardtop convertible and turned into the
Infiniti's handling and performance flagship. And with 343 horsepower being churned out
from the IPL-tuned 3.7 liter DOHC 24-valve VVEL V-6 engine, there's enough
power to make the 2013 Infiniti IPL G hardtop convertible very fasT indeed.
But is it fast and sharp enough to compete with letters such as AMG and M.

2008 Infiniti M35 S Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev With Exhaust View - 32K
2008 Infiniti M35 S
This has a 3.5L V6 making 275 HP while paired to a 5 Speed auto.
This is a nice car & the interior was comfortable & quality was decent
enough overall. The biggest gripe I have with this year M35 is with the
power the V6 which delivers only 275 HP. For such a large, heavy vehicle
thats considered the flagship sedan in the Infiniti lineup, that power just
doesn't cut it. If you want a 2008 M series sedan, best opt for the 4.5L
v8 ( M45) which delivers strong power. Or go for the 2009 Model where the
M35's V6 was tuned to deliver 303 HP & its paired to a 7 Speed auto.
