The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
The 2012 Porsche Boxster S - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Porsche's new 981 Boxster is an all-new design. Bigger, but lighter than
before. We went to the launch event in the South of France to see how good
it was. And whether a man can now buy the girl's Porsche.
Porsche 918 - Record Nurburgring 6.57 - ONBOARD FULL RACE - THE BEST
Porsche 918 - Record Nurburgring 6.57 - As the first vehicle to boast
global road homologation, the Porsche 918 Spyder* has conquered the
20.6-kilometre lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven
minutes. Achieving a time of exactly six minutes and 57 seconds, the super
sportscar equipped with a hybrid drive shaved 14 seconds off the previous
record. Wolfgang Hatz, member of the Porsche AG Board of Management in
charge of Research and Development, had the following to say: "We promised
a great deal with the 918 Spyder, namely to redefine driving pleasure,
efficiency and performance. We have kept our word."
As is always the case with Porsche, the 918 Spyder is also leading the way
for future generations as the latest in the line of super sportscars. It is
currently making its global début at the International Motor Show (IAA).
With its unique spread, the model blends maximum driving dynamics with
minimal fuel consumption. By taking the Nürburgring record, the sportscar
is demonstrating the enormous potential that lies in Porsche's pioneering
plug-in hybrid concept, and is underpinning the leading role the company
enjoys when it comes to developing sporty hybrid vehicles. "The radical
hybridisation of the 918 Spyder from the very outset is what made this lap
record possible" says Dr. Frank Walliser, head of the 918 Spyder project.
"The lap time on the Nordschleife is and remains the toughest measure of a
super sportscar. Posting a time of 6.57 minutes, we achieved a result of
which everyone in the development team and at Porsche as a whole is rightly
The record, which was previously held for four years, was even broken
during the first attempt in the test drive on the morning of September 4.
All three drivers -- Former European Rally Champion Walter Röhrl, Porsche
test driver Timo Kluck and Porsche factory driver Marc Lieb -- were quicker
than the existing record with each lap driving the two 918 Spyder models
used, and posted lap times of less than seven minutes on numerous
occasions. Ultimately, it was Marc Lieb who posted the absolute best time
of 6.57 minutes, driving at an average speed of 179.5 km/h, as measured by
Wige Solutions. Marcus Schurig, editor-in-chief of sportscar magazine
"sport auto", was on hand as an objective observer of the record-breaking
runs. The two sportscars, which deliver an output of 887 bhp (652 kW), were
equipped with the optional "Weissach package" to increase the driving
dynamics, and lead out on the standard Michelin tyres developed
specifically for the 918 Spyder.
