When production of the classic Mini ceased in 2000, BMW (the new owner of the brand) announced the successor to the Mini—which is variously called the "BMW MINI" or the "New MINI". The brand name for the new car is MINI (written in capital letters)
In 2004 the 911 was heavily revised and the 996's replacement, the 997, was unveiled in July. The 997 keeps the basic profile of the 996, bringing the drag coefficient down to 0.28, but draws on the 993 for detailing. In addition, the new front fascia is reminiscent of the older generation, with the traditional "bug eye" headlamps. Its interior is also similarly revised, with strong links to the earlier 911 interiors while at the same time looking fresh and modern. The 997 shares less than a third of its parts with the outgoing 996, but is still technically very similar to it. Initially, two versions of the 997 were introduced— the rear wheel drive Carrera and Carrera S. While the base 997 Carrera produced 325 PS (239 kW) from its 3.6 L Flat 6, a more powerful 3.8 L 355 PS (261 kW) Flat 6 powers the Carrera S. Besides a more powerful engine, the Carrera S also comes standard with 19 inch (48 cm) "Lobster Fork" style wheels, more powerful and larger brakes (with red calipers), a more sporty suspension, complete with PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) which allows for electronic adjustability of suspension settings, Xenon Headlamps, and Sport Steering wheel.

Wearing winter tires (good for upto 240 kmh) on mild icy road conditions on
Autobahn driving a 911 991 Porsche Carrera 4S
This car is capable of higher speeds in the hands of more experienced
drivers. I don't do this car the justice. I had a crash scare last year in
997 turbo s on autobahn when a driver
changed in to fast lane i was doing about 275 kmh, since then am more
nervous, cautious whatever you call it. You can see that happen at 2:18
You just hope all drivers keep in their minds they're on no limit zone they
should check fast lane before a maneuver.
Also, I apologise from viewers I got carried away in residential area, I've
never done it prior to this and never will i ever. Another apology for the

2015 Porsche 918 Spyder First Test: Fastest 0-60 Time Ever? Plus Porsche 959! - Ignition Ep. 109
On this week's Ignition, Carlos Lago has a second go at Porsche's 918
hypercar. The goal: to run the 918 through the full gauntlet of MT's
instrumented testing, including 0-60, quarter mile, braking, figure 8, and
a blistering real-time hot lap around Big Willow race track with pro driver
Randy Pobst. Carlos also gets a rare chance to experience the 918's
ancestor, the Porsche 959. The 959 was a remarkable piece of automobile
history that was decades ahead of its time with much of it's technology
only appearing in common vehicles within the last ten years or so. The 918
attempts something very similar, featuring very advanced technology,
including a naturally aspirated V8 that works with a seamlessly integrated
electric motor to provide extra Boost. Can Porsche's new hypercar achieve the
same effect that its predecessor did? Only time will tell, but stay tuned
for the record-breaking review.
Watch our original first drive of the Porsche 918 Spyder here:
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4S test review - Autogefühl
Convertible registrations plunge everywhere, but one manufacturer is
working against it: Porsche. Daring as they are, they even come up with a
new model lacking any logic. The new Porsche 911 Targa comes with that
classic 1965 roll-bar which makes it so unique. You dont really need it as
a crucial element, but it just looks so awesome - and that's exactly the
reason why they are building it.
The Posche 911 Targa is only available as an all wheel drive, having the
"4" has a name appendix. The 911 Targa 4 has a 3,4 litre flat twin engine
with 350 hp - giving you the 0 to 100 kilometres or 0 to 60 miles
acceleration in 4,8 seconds.
The bigger sports brother 911 Targa 4 S comes with a 3,8 litre one and an
extra of 40 hp, so 400 hp in total. That means 4,4 secs for the
acceleration - and some more features. Like four instead of 2 Exhaust pipes, 20 inch alloys instead of 19
inch, a sports chassis residing 10 mm lower and bigger brake discs in the
