Subaru Forester SUV review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/subaru/forester/sports-utility-vehicle/review
It's not the best looking 4x4 ever made, nor is it the most desirable, but the Subaru
Forester is certainly one of the most useful. Not only is it extremely adept off-road, but there's also lots of space inside, so it's supremely practical. The choice of engines is limited and the looks aren't particularly attractive, but that shouldn't matter if you just want a competent 4x4 with excellent reliability.

The forgotten Porsche
This is a short featuring the 924. the 924 was original conceptualized for vw by porsche. vw wanted a car that could get them into the mid priced sports car field so they farmed out the design to Stuttgart Porsche. When economic hardships caused vw to lose faith in the project Porsche stepped in and bought the designs back for what some sources say was close to 60 million dollars. The cars unorthadox layout with its front engined rear trans design gave the 924 near perfect weight distribution and impeccable handling. The motor was a non interference example that was designed for the car but was slated for multiple uses. One being the vw lt van and the other the audi 100. when the automotive press got wind of the 924 sharing its motor with a van they had a field day and the porsche purists that were already up in arms about the front engine layout turned away from the 924.
Years later the 924 was rumored to possibly receive an inline 6 cyl from the audi lineup. It never came to fruition and the 924 was replaced in the US market with the 944. the 924 was still available as the 924s. this was a 924 with the interference 2.5 liter motor from the 944 and the held over 924 interior instead of the very sought after later dash from the 85.5 and later 944.
the 924 you see here has stock Exhaust with the rear box bypassed.

2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S, first presentation
2014 Porsche 911 turbo S, first presentation. World presentation in Moscow.03.05.13.
Porsche has revealed today the 911 turbo and turbo S, ahead of a public debut scheduled for September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Following several reports and batches of spy shots, the latest 911 turbo lineup has arrived. turbo and turbo S make use of a six-cylinder, 3.8-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine delivering 520 HP (383 kW) in the 911 turbo and 560 HP (412 kW) in the 911 turbo S variant. Power is transferred to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK with auto stop/start function which has slashed off fuel consumption by 16 percent to 9.7 liters / 100 km (24.2 mpg US or 29.1 mpg UK).
The 911 turbo equipped with Sport Chrono Package will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds, while the turbo S is 0.1s quicker. Both of them are capable of reaching a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h).
Length has increased by 40mm to 4490mm, while width is also up by 28mm compared to Carrera 4 models to 1878mm. Porsche has also stretched the wheelbase by 100mm to 2450mm, while the front and rear tracks are also longer than before. Both models ride on 20-inch alloy wheels but only the S version has hub wheel locks. The turbo S also gains full LED headlights with four-point daytime running lights and camera-based main beam control (optionally available for turbo).
Just like the 911 GT3, the turbo variants have four-wheel steering which help the cars lap Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes 30 seconds with standard production tires fitted. Both of them have a retractable three-stage rear spoiler and a deployable rear wing with three adjustable wing positions.
Scheduled to reach the market in September, the 2014 Porsche 911 turbo has a starting price in Germany of 162,055 EUR while the 911 turbo S begins at 195,256 EUR. VAT and country-specific taxes included.
