    Potentially an interesting drag race here as it pits three very fast cars each representing their nation against each other but Autocar screws the whole thing up. The Nissan GTR and the Porsche 911 Turbo S are not all that different from each other. Both feature twin turbo six-cylinder powerplants, both have all wheel drive, and both have dual clutch transmissions. The GTR is heavier however with less torque on paper. No direct fuel injection for the VR38DETT motor and of course a front engine layout. It's also quite a bit cheaper than the Porsche. The best horsepower per dollar value of the trio is the Hellcat but you already knew that. Just as you likely knew it is the heaviest car of the trio. We're talking 400 kg more than the 911 Turbo S or in other words more than 800 pounds. As this is Autocar they have no clue how to launch the Hellcat. The car is still spinning its tires when they go green. Why? What's the point of the drag race if the Hellcat never even gets a chance to hook up? Of course they also provide no data because it's Autocar and we should all just be happy they aren't doing this in the rain while sipping tea. They try again and the Hellcat again does its stupid spin until the tires go green routine. At no point do they think of going from a roll because producing quality performance comparisons escapes the people at Autocar. Essentially we get a frustrating and pointless drag race video. Someone tell these idiots at Autocar THIS is how you drag race a Hellcat.

    This is beautiful and keeps things simple and elegant. A yellow Porsche already screams for attention so no need to go crazy on the rims. Yes, 21 inch wheels sound big but the wheels look right at home on this 991 Carrera 4S. They are a wide 21x12 in back and 21x9.5 in front. The brushed finish with a gloss clear coat looks fantastic. Add in a drop and window tint and the result is one hell of a hot C4S.

    Haven't heard much of anything. Dinan's hardcore street offering is... well, even calling anything they offer for BMW street cars hardcore is generous.

    I inject mine with apple juice the night before and leave it in the plastic shrink wrap to prevent it from leaking out. About an hour before cooking i pat it dry with paper towels, rub it down with oil and liberally apply a generic BBQ rub that i make. Smoke @ 225 until internal temp hits 205. Immediately wrap it in tin foil and towels and let it sit for an hour or two. I also smoke it fat cap down and flip it fat cup up while its wrapped - this seems to really let the fats and juices redistribute throughout the meat. I really enjoy cherry wood for the smoke but pork is extremely universal.

    I appreciate the help! I'm pretty sure I'm going to miss this thing like crazy, but making payments on a Q7, S4, and a new Silverado is a bit much!

    Under 8 minutes on the Nurburgring used to be the measuring stick for a fast sports car. These days even 4000+ pound luxury sport sedans routinely break into the 7 minute range. Porsche officially holds the record for going the deepest into that 7 minute range with a 7:38 lap from the 2017 Panamera Turbo. Now, before you go on stating how incredible this time is (it is impressive) you have to keep in mind that this is not the same Nurburgring as in the past. Nurburgring testing was suspended for a while and sections were repaved along with the installation of new safety barriers and precautions. Comparing this 2017 Panamera Turbo time to times before the track facelift so to speak is not apples to apples. Is the Panamera Turbo really as quick of a track car as a Lexus LFA, Ferrari 458 Italia, 997 Turbo, or Chevrolet C6 ZR1? Of course not. A record is a record though and Porsche test drivers topped the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio's 7:39 time. A new sport sedan overall Nurburgring record sure is a great way to introduce the capability of the new Panamera Turbo. Considering this is not even the Turbo S model that is impressive. The Panamera sure looks like the performance sedan to beat once again.

    The MP4-12C was phased out in favor of an updated version of the platform you all know as the 650S. That is not to say a stock MP4-12C is not potent as it definitely is. It's a tall order for any mid-size luxury sedan to take down on the highway even a modded one. This second generation Cadillac CTS-V is supercharged from the factory with the 6.2 liter LSA engine. It responds well to modification which it will need to move its portly butt to keep up with the 31XX pound MP4-12C. This LSA receives a higher boost boost pulley, a cam upgrade, drag radials, and most importantly E85 fuel. Nothing too crazy about the mod list there. They run twice and the CTS-V gets the better of the MP4-12C in the first run partially thanks to a better start. For whatever reason the second run is not shown from the CTS-V's view but instead we get a chase view. The first perspective is out of focus and in the second view it looks close with the MP4-12C edging. Either way this is a potent Cadillac considering the mods and all the MP4-12C needs is a tune to decisively put things in its favor.

    Just in time for July 4th, right? If American automotive culture can be represented by any one thing it is definitely V8 horsepower. The Americans simply make the most. Disagree? Well, you can talk to Steve Morris Engines about some of their builds like this absolutely absurd twin turbo big block. Absurd in a good way of course with 4000 horsepower on race gas and how about 3000 on pump? That 3000 figure comes at only 20 psi by the way. Who knows what it really does cranked up. Here are the specs: Cast BRODIX 5" bore-space block with in-house custom machining Premium SME piston package for big boost Billet crankshaft and aluminum connecting rods Custom cam profile Jesel belt-drive and MOROSO dry-sump oiling system INNOVATORS WEST balancer with integrated crank trigger Cast BRODIX cylinder heads with SME port program and modifications JESEL custom shaft-mouted rocker system Custom billet valve covers Fabricated (optional billet) intake manifold Competition machining and assembly Yes, this is street legal and goes into a street legal car. You might balk at the $63,999 price but the horsepower per dollar is unbeatable if you consider that 2000+ horsepower Underground Racing builds are six figures and that they will only make half the power. This is street legal performance on a whole different level. The video below covers the details directly from Steve Morris. Well worth a watch for any enthusiast. 'Merica!
